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:
3 well equipped cottages all rented individually - 3 bedroom cottage with 2 en suite master bedrooms, one twin, a 2 bedroom cottage and a 1 bedroom cottage; sleep up to 16 people and can be rented as a whole or individual units. There is a large garden with fruit trees and lawns. We have baby equipment including cots. Each cottage has a fully fitted and equipped gourmet kitchens, luxurious bathrooms, beautifully appointed bedrooms with best quality bedding (we offer a linen service and cleaning). We are located in the village near the river and vineyards and offer wonderful walks and cycling A holiday in one of our cottages offers you a peaceful break with lots of interesting places to visit, a chance to taste the local wines and excellent restaurants nearby
