It took us many, many months of searching to find the ideal property for our gite project.
We were looking for the right sort of place - one that provided a calm and peaceful environment in the beautiful French countryside so that we could create a holiday location that people would enjoy, free from noise and light pollution, without having to be located in the middle of nowhere and miles from any amenities - not an easy task!

At Le Bouchet we found the perfect place, an old farm on a small hill just a couple of kilometres from the small town of Descartes and the village of Abilly.
Le Bouchet has a very long history in the region and is marked, with its original tower on one of the very first maps ever made of the area in the Eighteenth century and its buildings were perfect for our gites.

Renovated to a very high standard providing comfortable and spacious accomodation, each gite also has its own private south facing large garden or terraced area that provides an ideal spot to eat out and enjoy the sunshine. There is easy access to the rest of the gardens at Le Bouchet which includes plenty of areas for children to play in with a swing, slide, climbing frame and badminton and a very large landscaped pool area with a heated swimming pool and sun terrace.

La Laiterie accomodates up to ten people and Les Ecuries up to seven; both having a bedroom downstairs they are well suited for guests who are less mobile, particularly Les Ecuries, which has wider doorways and wet room to accomodate wheelchair access and a decked terrace at the same level as the gite living area.
Both gites are equipped with WiFi Internet.
