Bourgueil apartment description
• Conveniently located in the heart of the Loire Valley in Bourgueil at the Château des Sablons
• Two bedrooms with a king- and twin-sized beds
• Delightfully-terraced swimming pool
• Perfectly situated for sight-seeing and many outdoor activities
Château des Sablons is a beautiful 18th century château with a white stone facade. It is ideally situated on the edge of the medieval market town Bourgueil which is amidst some the greatest castles in the heart of the Loire Valley.
The Harvest Suite is a delightful two-bedroom suite located on the second floor of the Château des Sablons' coach house. From its premier étage location (American second floor), it overlooks the gardens and park of the château with plenty of greenery and sounds of birds in the morning.
This suite accommodates two to four guests, and allows for the perfect vacation no matter your pleasures.
Activities also abound in the area. Visit other château's, tour museums, and taste the area's fine wines and cuisine.
Enjoy numerous outdoor activities that include: waters ports on the lakes and rivers (swimming, windsurfing, water skiing, canoing, and sailing), hunting, fishing, golf, and walking or cycling in the beautiful countryside and forests.
Guests in the Harvest Suite are able to enjoy the swimming pool and grounds of the château. The grounds are designed to provide an enclave of peace and quiet and guests are encouraged to use the various tables and chairs in the park seating areas for coffee, drinks and meals. The château makes a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing or even in place of a day of sightseeing.
The Harvest Suite has a living room/dining room and a separate kitchen.
The kitchen is completely furnished with a four-burner stove, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, pots, pans, dishes, and glassware.
There’s a separate water closet (WC), in the French tradition, located in the common areas close to the kitchen.
The main bedroom is immediately adjacent to the living/dining room and has its own bathroom with shower. This bedroom also has a king-sized bed.
The additional bedroom is located down the hall, and has its own sink in a separate alcove Both bedrooms have two single beds.
Also at the end of the hall, there’s a bathroom with a bathtub, shower, as well as an additional toilet. This allows a group to have two toilets, two sinks, a shower, and a bathtub at their disposal, so that there are plenty of facilities for a family or group.
The Château des Sablons is only a 15 minute stroll from the center of Bourgueil. The town is well endowed with shops, including three butcher shops, five bakeries, three café-bars, five restaurants, a wonderful patisserie and a good newsagent’s shop for newspapers, etc. In addition there are two supermarkets, one in town that stays open Sunday morning and one just on the outskirts, the huge HyperU Supermarket.
The town is prosperous and enjoyable, and a center of wine production. The A.O.C. of Bourgueil is present on every wine list of any size in France and visiting the neighboring wineries (you’ll pass vines on the way into town) is one of our guest’s favorite activities.
The Loire Valley in the part of France which is the most bicycle-friendly. A separate bike path has just been constructed between the center of Bourgueil and the Loire. This kind of construction is becoming more common in the area. (A several hundred kilometer bike path runs along the south bank levee of the Loire.)
There are plenty of guides for visiting the region by bicycle, but the immediate area has three bike circuits of about 40 km that provides visitors with a unique visit to the area. One focuses on the vineyards and wine-producing areas, another on the old ports on the Loire, and another takes you up into the hills and along the Chaungeon to see the mills, etc.
You can also combine bicycle tours with the train to extend your range. Almost all local trains from the Port Boulet station 3.5 km from the château carry bicycles. This allows you to ride to Saumur on the bike and then take the train home, for instance.
The Château has a very convenient location, being only 3.5 km from an exit from the A85 motorway. This allows you immediate access to the motorway and speeds you to some of the further distance château's such as Amboise (less than an hour), Chenonceau (45 minutes), Langeais (15 minutes), Villandry (20 minutes), Chinon (15 minutes), Saumur (25 minutes), Montosreau (15 minutes), Angers, Azay le Rideau….

You home and your hospitality were wonderful. I have referred your rentals to several people. Some are interested in the Paris apartments, and some interested in the cooking classes given at the chateau. I am including a picture of Jean-Pierre and "Charlie" that I took on the day we left. Thank you again, and I hope to return or, maybe visit one of your other properties. Charlotte Y. Rehoboth Beach, DE USA

We have arrived back in Arizona and settled in to our "normal" life. We wanted to thank you for your hospitality and your assistance in getting us started on our vacation. Your Harvest Suite apartment in the carriage house is lovely. The views and quiet location were a perfect start to our month in France. We are still sorting though the million photos so we will send some later. The town that we fell in love with on our first outing was Cinq-Mars. We got lost and decided to drive though when we were turning around. It captured our attention, and forced us to slow down and take in the experience. We took your advice and slowed down significantly after the first week. Curt & Gaye K. Arizona, USA

Thank you for your hospitality and for such a glorious stay at the Chateau des Sablons in the Harvest Suite! We truly enjoyed exploring and re-discovering what the Loire Valley had to offer – its chateaux and abbeys, its foods and wines, its beautiful towns, and its people. We could stay there for months and still not see everything. Thank you again, and a la prochaine fois! Linda and Frank M.
