This old stone barn was part of an abandoned farm that has been lovingly restored over the last eight years. Sitting on ten acres, in a magical setting with stunning views of the Chateau Montpensier and the surrounding fields, this holiday rental is perfect for those wanting to explore the Loire Valley’s sites. The barn has been renovated and equipped in the highest standards, and will provide a very comfortable home base for visitors to the region.
Many of the grand Chateaux of the Loire Valley: Villandry, Chenonceau, Usse, Azay-le-Rideau and Saumur are easy half-day trips. For cycling enthusiasts, we are less than a kilometre from the main bike route through the Loire Valley; and for food and wine enthusiasts, the Loire Valley, is known as the ‘garden’ of France. We are surrounded by the vineyards of Chinon, Bourgueil and Saumur which produce some of France’s finest wines and best values. From its famous chèvre, the mushrooms of the troglodyte caves of Saumur, to the white asparagus grown in sandy Loire soil, the region offers a rich bounty. Your hosts, former restaurant owners from San Francisco, are available to cater meals, provide cookery classes and conduct local food and wine tours.
Catered meals are available if planned in advance. A multi-course meal, including wines, is 40 euros per person. Your hosts will plan a seasonal meal or you can make special requests. If possible, vegetables and fruit from our gardens will be used, and meats and poultry will be local and naturally-raised. Wines will be local, and come from our cave.
