Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Julie and Jeremy Kolbé, the English owners, are very much involved in tourism and will be happy to offer advice on how best to make the best use your stay in the area, should you require it. Jeremy is a driver-guide and Julie, who worked as a tour organizer in the UK, is now English teacher. We have two children, Tom and Emma, 25 and 23 years old. Tom works in Paris as a webmaster, and Emma is a trainee laywer living in Orleans. We also have a very friendly dog Banjo (6 years old) that all our visitors just fall in love with. We like growing our own fruit and vegetables and have a fair-sized vegetable patch now. Jeremy and I love travelling ourselves and try to fit this in during the winter months.

Why the Owner Chose Chaumont-sur-loire:
Julie and Jeremy spent 9 months travelling between the Loire Valley, Brittany and the Vendée, before choosing Monteaux 20 years ago. Why? Because of its central location, excellent road and rail links. There's a main railway station just a few minutes up the road from where you can take a train to Paris (2 hours) and the main Paris-Bordeaux motorway is just 20 minutes away. The property offers the best of both worlds: calm and relaxation in the beautiful one acre grounds and the accessability to towns and attractions (Amboise, Tours and Blois). Amboise, just a 15 minute drive away, has a fantastic Sunday morning market where you can find virtually anything from food (wonderful local fruits and vegetables), plants, clothes, hardware to furniture - and lots more. The castle and the Clos Lucé (Leonardo de Vinci's last home) are centrally located and there's a wonderful choice of cafés, bistros, restaurants in the town centre. In July and August, enjoy the wonderful sound and light (son et lumière) shows in the grounds of the castle. Amboise also boasts the largest freshwater aquarium in Europe and on the Loire you can rent canoes and kayaks. The currant takes you effortously downstream and is an experience you'll never forget. You'll soon realise why the Loire Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A good selection of bikes is at your disposal to cycle to local wine producers, along quiet country lanes or the cycletracks on the banks of the River Loire. You don't need a car to go to the village centre either, which boasts a café and several shops. Our guests appreciate having access to English speaking television and WIFI. All linen and bath towels are supplied to ease the baggage burden too. Living within the same grounds as the gîte, we are on hand to offer you any help/advice, if so required.
