This 19th century barn has been renovated to a good standard with great attention to detail and features exposed beams, cathedral ceiling, tiled floors and air conditioning. The property is furnished with elegant antiques mixed with rustic pieces and the under-floor heating and large woodburner make it wonderful for out of season breaks. There is also shared use of a superb heated, enclosed, outdoor swimming pool with a large sunny terrace. The discreet owners who also offer chambres d’hôtes in their house are happy to help. This region of the Loire Valley offers endless possibilities for visiting famous châteaux and vineyards, as well as the troglodyte caves. A wealth of day trips can be enjoyed nearby, including Paris, only 50 minutes away by train (TGV) from the cathedral city of Tours. Poitiers with the dazzling Futuroscope theme park is ideal for all the family. The surrounding countryside is a haven for walking and cycling and an 18 hole golf course is available at famous Cheverny.

    generally a lovely cottage however the master downstairs bedroom was infected with mites or fleas so needed to spray it as my mother was very badly bitten. the cottage appeared clean but actually needs a very good clean .

    A fantastic gem, undersold and we would absolutely go there again. Local boulangerie is fantastic, pool is fantastic, awesome local vineyards and nearby towns to discover. Renee and Gerard are fantastic.
