              Owner info

              About the owner: We are a Franco-American family living in Portland. We lived in Pontlevoy for 10 years and kept a home there where we return every year. This place is more our home and filled with a personal touch, nothing like your average rental cottage.

              Why the Owner Chose Pontlevoy:
              We'll always keep our house in Pontlevoy, the village is the absolute perfect location to discover the Loire Valley. Only 15 away from all chateaux, 3 miles from the Cher, surrounded by the ancient walls of the 1,000 years old abbey, every person that came to Pontlevoy will tell you what a unique place this village is. yet undiscovered from the touristic venues, it feels very alive and has the charm of an ancient french village. Very romantic hideaway. The center of the village where the house is located has been entirely renovated in 2012 with paved side walks and a artistic ininerary in the village. It's been the home of many international travelers sinc the mid 50's.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              we renovated the house using traditional yet very high quality materials. You will be welcomed by our friend, like a friend by our local manager that will provide everything you need when you arrive..a good botle of wine, a french baguette, the first breakfast and precious information on what to do and where to go. Immediately hooked to high speed internet, you will be able to send pictures to your family back home.
