We are also centred in the Touraine Wine region and you can taste Sauvignon, Chenin, Cabernet and Gamay locally. we are between Tours and Blois and within easy driving of Sanceree, Bourges, Amboise, Chinon and Saumur and the west coast of France

Visiti the famous and historic Loire Valley Chateaux (Castles) we are within walknig distance of Chenonceau and easy drive for Amboise, Chaumont, Azay-le-Rideau, Chinon, Villandry, Cheverny and Chambord and all other Loire Valley attractions.

We shall send you a list of our favourite places to go wine tasting; we are in the centre of the famous Touraine vineyards; come in September and experience the harvest!

Golf: We are about half an hour from the famous golf course at Cherverny ( by the Chateau).

If you are a fisherman we have great places for you - we are on the River Cher also there is a lake in the village.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: I am a private owner living in England but who loves France and the way of life. John and I visit the cottages several times a year to ensure all is going well and to have a lovely time there ourselves and with our family. I spend a lot of time painting while I am there and John looks after the maintenance. We are both retired doctors though when we boght the cottages we were very busy now we have more time to enjoy our lovely home.

Why Francueil:
We were bowled over when we saw this lovely house; it was in a poor state but with great potential. We spent a year lovingly restoring the cottage to imaculate condition. It is on priome position in the village with the bar across the road and excellent shipping facilities beyond the church which is next to the cottage. There is also a playground for children and a lake for quiet walks and picnics, also fishing. The village is very close to Chenonceau, the most visited chateau after Versailles. A short walk takes you to the river and you can walk alingside the river to view the chateau or alternatively take hte bikes or car to the village of Chenonceaux and full visit of the castle, there is an excellent restuarnat for lunch there.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage used to be the village bakery and is centrally located. It has been smartly decorated and well equipped; I would say uniquely of our properties it is a top class home with superb bedroom facuilities. The kitchen is well equipped for a serous cook. The sitting room opens onto thesecluded terrace so you can enjoy outdoor eating in the afternpoon and evening sunshine ro stay inside and still have the benefits of the french window. Situation is perfect for visitng the chateaux, we are a short drive from the autoroute junction so quick access to chateaux down beyond Tours such as Villandry, Usse, Chinon.
