Pouilly-Sur-Loire chateau / country house description
Staying in the Pouilly House is a wonderful experience, with families, friends, or for a romantic, cozy French country experience. This fully furnished and equipped house is over 150 years old, originally built as a Tavern on the Loire river front. Pouilly sur Loire is a lively town and 'vignoble' with wineries at a crossroads between central France and Burgundy. You'll thoroughly enjoy the comfort of this country home, the walkout gardens, the riverfront walks, and biking in the neighborhood or on the bike paths along the river natural reserves. Canoes and kayaks are available for day rentals--with pick up and drop off. There are over 10 Pouilly wineries, a Friday farmer's market, as well as incredible bakeries in a 15 minute walk from the house.
Larger towns with supermarkets and cinemas are 15 minute drives North or South on A77, including Cosne-sur-Loire and the beautiful medieval town--La Charite sur Loire. In addition to the standard furnishing, the house has bikes for all sizes, barbeques, garden furniture, and wireless internet. It is a two level house, with upstairs and downstairs entrances. Both upstairs and downstairs enjoy walkout gardens with traditional stone wall enclosures and beautiful trees and flowers. Both upstairs and down have street access and parking as the house is on the corner.
If you are ready for driving visits, Sancerre, Bourges, Vezelay and Nevers are all great day visits--with wine tasting, cathedrals or basilicas, walking malls, and more. During the summer, another great day visit is to the medieval castle reconstruction site--Guedelon-- followed by Saint Fargeau's castle and nightly historical sound and light show. In the summer there are outdoor festivals, markets, fairs, and art exhibits all around the area--which are well documented with signage, at the tourism office, and in the local paper. A bit further long day trips or overnight trips can be made to Paris, the Chateau de Chenonceau, Les Hospices de Beaune and more. For more ideas and images, you can visit our website. The Paris airports are both accessible in two hours by train or car.
The house is fully equipped with everything from outdoor dining furniture to wine glasses, TVs to salt & pepper shakers. Come with your family or friends and enjoy French country living and culture.
Pouilly House has independent upstairs and downstairs access. Please contact us for rates and details to rent just one level of this country home.

A lovely stay in a great house...
A lovely stay in a great house...
We spent a great week at this charming property, as a family. Myself, my wife our son (aged 2), my father and sIster and her family (a six year old and a 2 year old) and with plenty of space to enjoy the outside as well as inside, without being on top of each other. We will certainly bear it in mind for future visits to France and I would recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a great holiday, to help them relax, unwind in a self-contained property with a large garden, as well as potential to enjoy the surrounding area and of course the local food and wines!

A perfect family rental
A perfect family rental
Our family of 8 (including 2 grandchildren 5 and 11) spent a delightful 2 weeks at this lovely home. We were most pleased with the accommodations when we arrived, which were more complete and nicer than we had expected. The home is ideal for a family, with easy and comfortable amenities, and well located within easy driving of many lovely chateaux and vineyards . . . and the spectacular archeological site, Guédelon ... not to be missed (google it!!). A perfect example of what vrbo can do to unite a thoughtful and competent owner with willing and adventurous travelers. Thanks.

Fabulous French Cottage Stay!
Fabulous French Cottage Stay!
My family stayed in this home over spring break and we absolutely loved it! With 3 kids under 15 yrs old, the property and location was perfect! The view is beautiful! It has a HUGE yard (the property is completely fenced in) with willow trees and large bushes--great for the kids' imagination! The house is located next to a river and bridge. The kids loved to go down to the river and play. Wonderful bakeries in town. My Hubby and I went to a Wine tasting and we all visited castles and vineyards all within 30 miles from the house. A small grocery store and market are in town to meet all your daily essentials. The house has ALL you need (washer and dryer, kitchen and supplies, bed and bedding, even internet!). If you are looking for a Great French experience, immerse yourself into the real deal! We did and had a blast! I Highly recommend this particular place...Especially for a large family. So come one..come ALL...Enjoy your stay in the Fabulous Pouilly Wine Country! Rent this location and you won't be disappointed! Toodles!

We stayed here for one week, and it was fabulous. Great location, with biking trails, sandy beaches on the river, many castles a short drive away. I love the local restaurants and wines. Our family will come again. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

About the owner: This family-friendly home and garden, has been renovated by my husband, his father, with decorative touches by my father. We enjoy it regularly and hope you will enjoy and care for it too.
Why the Owner Chose Pouilly-Sur-Loire:
Our family is franco-american, and we all wanted a place to share and enjoy and relax together. This beautiful, historical site, is also homey and comfortable with a natural setting, in a small yet very vibrant town near Paris. It is well situated only 2 hours from Paris, as well as within an hour or two of hundreds of historical and cultural sites in Burgundy and along the Loire river. It was a perfect choice for our family to grow and to share with new and old friends.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Our family loves to come rest, relax and recover in this home. We garden, take long walks, barbeque, swim in the river, and walk into town for delicious wine tasting, coffees or hot cocoa or to the market on Fridays. Pouilly is a way of life!
