The other enabling utilities ,  airfield, use of car and 4 bikes are offered on a complimentary basis and hirers will be required to agree to conditions of use.   Clients from Europe will be invited to use the  Daily Telegraph Newspaper currency conversion for the basis of payments in Euro's .

With over 20 years experience of flying holidays in France , we believe we are offering most of what is needed to enjoy a weeks flying for pilots and their, perhaps non- flying, partners.  There is no key handover appointment , there is hangarage for two aircraft , there is the possible use of our car on a friendly basis and of course the character gite in a peaceful location. Pilots get the use of tools and do not need to carry heavy ancilliary items which are provided, there is no need to carry bulky towels or linen. There is no avgas on site but mogas is nearby and 24HR access to 100LL fuel at local aerodromes such as Amboise ( 12 statute miles) , Romorantin, Saumur etc. At most small aerodromes in France there is no landing fee to factor in when positioning for fuel ! The Loire and Cher valleys offer some spectacular sights from the air or via terra- firma, Montrichard has a wealth of reasonably priced good restaurants and there are the Touraine  wines surrounding you in every direction. The airfields position provides great local flying or access to the other regions of france on a daytrip basis, eg Dordogne- domme in 176 miles , Limousin - St. Junien in 100 miles and the atlantic coast - St. Pierre-d'oleron in 153 miles.

  Where a week is shown as " blocked", we are ensuring the property is vacant for 7 days between bookings to allow a safe cleaning session and virus free environment for subsequent bookings. This also means that it will be more difficult to translate your holiday slot due to bad weather.
