Holiday rentals at that time were a very different story. There was little internet if any at that time and no one requested it! There weren’t so many gîtes in the area for rent either!
We live in a Longere, 87 steps from kitchen to kitchen but not overlooking the gite. Our daughter Laura has established her own equestrian business whilst actively taking part in showjumping competitions with her team of horses during the summer season. She is also establishing a pony breeding program. Our first foal was born 4 May 2022. We have also a lovely colt pony who we took to his first show this Summer 2022
With all our horses, Seven cats 2 dogs and 3 chickens there is never a dull moment at La Bourjonnerie.
We are situated near Chatillon sur Indre (36), only 25 mins from The Medieval Market Town of Loches (37), just 35 mins from Zoo Beauval (the nº1 zoo in France). We are no more than 50 minutes from the vineyards and châteaux of the Loire as well as many other attractions. Please see our digital guide for more information.

The gite is set in a rural setting. Hence a car is necessary.
In the summer we are surrounded by the growing crops. We accept up to two dogs free of charge but we do ask that you pick up after them and do not allow them upstairs, on the furniture or in the pool area. As you can see from the photos the garden from the gite is enclosed. Perfect for younger children and your four legged companion.
There are many local routes to take a stroll ranging from 30 mins to 2 hours. All off road and you will see much of our local wildlife. Walk or cycle you chose.
There are also many places to fish. Local Maires will sell you a fishing permit either by the day or the week.
We are 7 km from the nearest supermarket. 4 kms from boulangerie and local Auberge. (lunchtime only). 35 minutes from the no 1 zoo in France Zoo Parc Beauval.
