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.

Approximate distance to Poitiers airport is 121 km.

    I stayed with my 3 teenage daughters and 2 dogs, loved the layout and location as it was perfect for the quiet holiday we wanted. No real local amenities, but as advertised so no disappointment, pool lovely too. Slightly disappointed that give garden was actually separate from property, over the lane, so couldn't let dogs out to mooch around without going over with them. Front courtyard area was enclosed and so they could be out safely there, so we sat out front most of the time. Only slight complaint was general dustiness of property, big old barn and space, so tricky to keep spick and span, but only a minor point (when retrieving dog toys from under chairs and sofas :-)). Lovely hosts and perfect place to base for a quiet stay with easy access to beautiful area and many chateaux. Only note that property details say DVD player available, there isn't one, and we had bought many fils to watch as we knew internet connection was weak. Maybe update the online details?
