Property description

Rent our petite chateau in the wine village of Le Puy Notre Dame in the Loire Valley. Our home is on the edge of the village on a small medieval street close to quiet walking trails in vineyards. Many Loire chateau are nearby as well as fabulous restaurants and other visitor attractions. This is a spacious and romantic 15th-19th century country house (over 200 square meters) perfect for four couples, family parties, or just a few of you. Walk to pharmacy, bakery, two restaurants. Enjoy apéros and dinners in our quiet private gardens and courtyards.

Our home has old turrets, stone walls, beams, fireplaces and large kitchen, dining and living areas. Our property is completely surrounded by high old stone walls for your privacy and quiet enjoyment. Don't miss the local markets nearby throughout the week in the cities of Saumur, Thouars, Montreuil-Bellay, Chinon, Angers, and Doué la Fontaine.

A three hour drive from Paris or the Atlantic coast. A 20 minute ride from train stations and car rental. Despite its large size, renters have the place to themselves.

Le Puy Notre Dame is a peaceful and authentic French village. Church bells ring throug the day. Locals frequent the tobac for a coffee, beer and wine. Children walk to the local schools. The smell of crushed grapes fill the air during fall harvest. The occasional wine tractors pass on their way to adjacent vineyards. Patrons gather at Le Bochon Ponot for the 11 euros lunch. Trucks come through the village on Rue des Picards (D178) north of the church past the Marie. Cars navigate the narrow and winding medieval streets and stop to talk with friends. Power lines are underground and pleasant antique lights show the way at night. Flowers pots hang throughout the village. Le Puy Notre Dame offers a pleasant blend of country living and village life.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Beth is founder of MentorPlanet and the marketing consulting firm of Parkhill Marketing, Inc. Robert is a retired investment professional. You may see more about us on our facebook page under the names Beth Parkhill and Bob Corrick. Also see our wordpress blog 'lepuynotredame' about living in the Loire Valley of France.

Why the Owner Chose Saumur:
We started on our adventure in France in 2006 when we purchased this winemaker's property. Beth is founder of MentorPlanet, an internet mentoring business. She is a marketing and strategic planning consultant for business and non-profits. Robert is a retired investment professional. You can see us on Facebook and LinkedIn.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
This is a unique property because it is a romantic old place with attractive gardens, close to village amenities, while at the same time connected to many country walks. It can easily accommodate large or small parties. We love walking in the village to the bakery and epicérie, dining in the restaurants, having coffee, wine and lunches in nearby villages and cities. We love the Loire wines, probably the most diverse wine region in France. We have not yet visited all of the many villages and chateau. The restaurants in the area are excellent, whether Michelin stars, or village bistros. We live here six months a year, so it is much loved and cared for.
