It’s hard to imagine a more scenic area than the Loire Valley, with its abundant vineyards, verdant countryside and fairy-tale chateaux. Set within this beautiful region, you’ll find a charming 17th-century manor house, the perfect escape to the French countryside for a group of family and friends. A great option for groups who want to travel together but also like their own space, the property consists of a main house and adjoining gite for up to 15 guests, and a small separate gite for three additional guests (subject to availability). Designed to incorporate the property’s history with a stylish rustic decor, the house offers a selection of beautiful private rooms as well as numerous inviting spaces both inside and outside for entertaining.  Just a short drive from the vineyards and historic towns and cities of the Loire, this property makes the perfect getaway for your next luxury holiday in France.

The first thing to greet you as you pull up at this house, set in expansive beautifully manicured grounds, is its striking exterior. Over 300 years of history sits within its walls, with wooden beams, arched doorways, huge stone fireplaces and exquisite stone staircases and passages bringing the past alive. In the main house, relax in the huge sitting room with the wood burner roaring on cold nights, and in warmer weather, throw open the doors to the terrace to enjoy the breeze. A traditional flagstone kitchen is an ideal spot to whip up meals and enjoy breakfast together, or head out to the stone terrace for a lazy breakfast under the sun. Four exquisite bedrooms, including a master with four-poster and small gym for morning exercise complete the main house, with an extra three bedrooms and small sitting room and kitchen available in the adjoining large gite.  

Outside, the gardens are the perfect place to enjoy the temperate weather of the Loire Valley. In sunny weather, a gorgeous eco-heated saltwater swimming pool will tempt tired holidaymakers in for a dip, or why not just relax on the sun loungers and unwind under the warm sun? Children can play on the lawns or compete at boules, table tennis and badminton; let them work off some energy on the trampoline before dinner then call them up to the new BBQ area in the upper garden for a barbie – you won’t get any complaints! In the warm breeze of the evening, the various terraces will tempt the adults of the party to dine alfresco or enjoy a few cocktails by the pool before retiring for the night. There is plenty of space for car parking although if coming in by helicopter is more your style, the house also caters for helicopter landings.
