The time of year where we begin to wind down our summer operations here at Le Chant, and our minds start to turn towards winter projects. Yes, we’ve still got campers on site, and we still have gîte guests booked in, and all are enjoying this lovely ‘indian summer’ we’re experiencing at the moment. High […] Continue Reading

IMPORTANT – Covid-19.
MIS A JOUR 01/08/2021
Syb & I, like many of you, believed that the pandemic would be over by now, and a return to normality would swiftly follow. Unfortunately, that hasn’t proved to be the case, and for the second season, we’re issuing our guidelines for those of you who wish to visit.
We’re a small site, and we hope that our personal attention to detail and fewer people sharing the place makes it a much safer venue for your holidays. As the season progresses we will update this notice.
As per French government requirements, we will ask you on arrival for proof of either:
A valid lateral flow test, negative, taken within 48 hours of arrival.
Your valid government issued QR code of double vaccination, or
Your attestation certifying full recovery from Covid-19.
If you have none of these, or they prove invalid, don’t worry. You may take a test at the pharmacy in Vernantes. Providing the test is negative, you will be permitted entry.
Here at Le Chant d’Oiseau we don’t promise anything but a place to relax, unwind and cast aside the stresses of everyday life. Whether relaxing in the sun with a good read, or meandering the quiet country lanes by bike or on foot, we invite you to soak up the peace and tranquility of ‘la France profonde’ at its most enchanting.
The western Loire valley is the perfect place to take a holiday, a short break, or relax out of season. From quiet riverside picnics to the stunning Grand Parc Puy du Fou and so much more in between, you and your family can have the holiday you all want. Together!
You can choose from one of our three beautiful gites, created from the ancient farm buildings collectively known as ‘Les Chants d’Oiseaux’ for hundreds of years, or a pitch on our small (but perfectly formed) camping ground. We invite you to spend your time here in whatever fashion you wish, at prices you can afford without sacrifice to quality or comfort.
Le Chant d’Oiseau is perfect for a family get-together, to meet with old friends, or to make new ones.
There’s no pressure, just the promise of your kind of holiday, how you choose to spend it! While we love to make a fuss of a special celebration, we also appreciate that sometimes peace & quiet is just what you need! We’re led by you, our guests.
We regret that NO pets are allowed on site except guide dogs.
