Dating back to the early 18th Century, Les Petites Cigognes was originally used by mail coaches en route to Paris, who would break their journey to water their horses.
Our property is comprised of three gites, which were
built in traditional Touraine style and have been renovated to retain much of their original character and woodwork. Today, Les Petites Cigognes boasts tastefully furnished accommodation, while offering all modern conveniences, including a beautiful, heated swimming pool and free wi-fi internet access. All our gites have private west facing terraces and lawned gardens, perfect for soaking-up the renowned Touraine sunshine, al-fresco dining and admiring glorious sunsets.
Our name—Les Petites Cigognes—means “The Little
Storks.” Storks are a symbol of vine growers and wine
producers. According to legend, a stork saved a besieged fortress from defeat, when it brought the grapevines for the defenders. Once they ate the grapes, they managed to ward off the enemy. Storks have since become known as birds that bring luck, prosperity and good omens.
At Les Petites Cigognes, this sentiment inspires our
passion to deliver a memorable getaway for all of our
guests, young and old and from near and far.
