With views across vineyards and the château at Chinon in the distance, this restored 12th-century holiday property, once a ‘theatre’ of La Vauguyon, stands in a courtyard of buildings and is part of the owner’s château, yet totally independent of it. Spacious throughout, it combines period-style features with modern facilities. Chinon has a medieval château, old quarter and fine restaurants. An ideal place for visiting some of the famous vineyards and Loire châteaux, Saumur, Azay-le-Rideau, Villandry and near to both Montsoreau, Cande-St. Martin and the ancient city of Tours. Riding, cycling, boating and golf nearby. Set in the grounds of the Château de la Vauguyon, these two distinctive, restored properties date from the 12th century. The Dovecote (ref 37142) is furnished in a pleasant rustic style with beams, cool stone walls and a large stone fireplace. Le Théâtre (ref F37167), once a ‘theatre’ of La Vauguyon, stands in a courtyard of buildings, part of, yet independent of, the owner’s château. Both holiday properties enjoy views across vineyards to the château at Chinon in the distance. Chinon also offers an old quarter and fine restaurants. Nearby, discover the picturesque villages of Montsoreau and Candé St. Martin. In the heart of the Touraine wine-growing district, many famous vineyards can be visited.
