Property description

Experience the charm of a French small town in a 19th century village house which used to be the stable for the nearby Belvedere. Stay in 'a town in the country', everything is within walking distance, shops as well as river banks and countryside. There are the best butchers, bakers and pastry shops! Located 10 minutes from Amboise - by car - one of the most visited cities in France, recently listed as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.

A separate entrance - from a cobblestone yard - takes you to your French nest.

Although you can cook at home, meals are a special treat in the area! You can help yourself from twice-weekly open-air market and local shops.

Private parking

Many of our guets find it easier to travel to the Loire Valley by train and hire a car at Saint Pierre des Corps station where you have high speed trains (TGV) from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

Keywords: Step in from the parking and discover 'La Chevalerie', hidden from the street,self-catering 19th century village house, with a private cobbelstone yard, quiet, sunny.Just walk to shops, market and restaurants or have meals in the yard.
What a luxury : walk to the baker's - a stone throw! - to buy fresh baguette and croissants in the morning

Public heated swimming pool in the village: 10minutes away
NEW! English and other languages TV channels
