Lovely restored cottage with 3 bedrooms (2 en suite) ideal for two couples with children.

Situated in the beautiful Loire Valley just 10 minutes drive from the famous Chateau de Chenonceau, this was the original farmhouse occupied by the grandmother.

Car: Necessary

The cottage is set on the outskirts of the village of St Georges and a few paces from the Touraine vineyards. We are central for visiting the Loire Valley chateaux (castles) and wineries. We are 4 minutes drive from Chenonceau the beautiful chateau with arches across the river where Henri 2nd kept his wife Catherine de Medici and mistress Diane de Poitier, 10 minutes from Amboise and 30 minutes from Chambord, Cheverny, Chaumont. The A85 route is a quick access to castles west of Tours including Azay-le-Rideau, Villandry and the mediaeval town of Chinon the original site of the French Parliament. Winery visits are a must with great vineyards including Vouvray (chenin) Chinon, Bourgeuil and Saumur (Cabernet Frabnc) and Oisly east to Sancerre and Pouilly (one and half hours) for sauvignons.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1989

About: I am a private owner living in England but who loves France and the way of life. John and I visit the cottages several times a year to ensure all is going well and to have a lovely time there ourselves and with our family. I spend a lot of time painting while I am there and John looks after the maintenance. We are both retired doctors though when we bought the cottages we were very busy now we have more time to enjoy our lovely home.

Why Chenonceaux:
John and I bought this lovely farmstead soon after we moved to the south of England; we wanted somewhere for our family to visit within easy reach of home. We chose Vrigny as it is in the country but not isolated and it is close to Chenonceau our favourite chateau, it is central for visiting all the castles in the Loire Valley and also the vineyards, our local wines are so good and being so close to the vineyards we can participate in the vendange (harvest). We developed the property over the years; the 3 cottages are independent and you can enjoy your own space, there is also the advantage you will meet some really interesting people - or bring your friends and share two or three cottages together.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love our home in Vrigny because it is close to the river and vineyards; it has a lovely large garden in which we grow fruit for everyone to enjoy, and we can sit in the courtyard and relax and let the world go by. Even better when we do decide to go out we are so close to Chenonceau (the most visited chateau after Versailles) that we have bought ourselves season tickets so we can enjoy the lovely grounds and beautiful setting as often as possible, The lovely walks in the vineyards and along the river really enhance any trip (it is possible to walk right along to Chenonceau and further to Blere or in the other direction to Montrichard and St Aignean).. We have a market to choose from every day of the week and our local restaurants are very very good. We enjoy exploring the lovely wineries and have chosen some of the best around to put on a list for our visitors. We will bombard you with information to help you enjoy your stay in our cottages.
