Property description

Located in the Loire Valley between Blois and Tours, amidst the most prestigious Loire Chateaux, surrounded by forests and vineyards, in a 700 hectare estate with lakes for fishing, the Gîte des Orfeuilles is a former farmhouse dating from 1830, in a calm, wooded countryside setting, 1 kilometer away from the nearest and the owners' houses.
Up to 12 people can be accommodated in the main house and the charming barn (400m2), with 5 bedrooms (18 to 28m2), 3 bathrooms, a large kitchen dining room, sitting room with fireplace, large living room with 3 big French windows, wood stove, as well as a private swimming pool, heated to your taste.
Ideal for a holiday house, the Gîte des Orfeuiles is spacious and extremely comfortable, having been lavishly restored in 2005, in keeping with the original style. Here you can spend your holidays far from everyday stress and noise.

demeure de Bizard: Monthou-sur-Cher Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 605037a

Large, charming country house, full of character, for 14 people: The house and the outbuilding. At the heart of the prestigious Loire valley, on the border of the Sologne and the Touraine, the Bizard country house was built on a site steeped in history. The sumptuous house is set in a 35-hectare clearing on a family estate. Restored to the highest standards in 2010, it stands next to the ruins of the Bizard château, which once belonged to the Duke of Guise. During restoration, the owners were more than careful to combine comfort with the respect of the architecture of the period and the style of the region. Added to this, keeping environmentalism in mind, much of the material (such as the wood or the stones), comes directly from the estate. Ideal for family reunions, holidays with friends, working parties or quite simply if you are a country lover, you will feel at home in this magnificent house in its unusual settings. There are two houses, the main house and the outbuilding. Together, 500m² in all, there are 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 large sitting rooms, and a large kitchen and dining room. From the terrace or beside the private pool, enjoy the climate and the special quality of the light in the Touraine, in a secluded site in the middle of the countryside. Backing onto the outbuilding is a private house which is lived in by a quiet couple.

Located in the Loire Valley between Blois and Tours, amidst the most prestigious Loire Chateaux

Surrounded by forests and vineyards, in one of the most beautiful and historical regions of France, David and Stéphanie de Schrynmakers de Dormael, are pleased to welcome you to their 700-hectare estate, deep in the countryside and at the heart of the Loire châteaux. The Belgian couple, who have been living in the Centre region for the past 20 years, can tell you all about the secrets of this enchanting spot. Come and discover the peacefulness and open spaces of the estate, either with the family or friends, and forget the stresses of everyday life. Whether you prefer a traditional farmhouse (12 peoples in the gite des orfeuilles) or a country house (14 peoples in la demeure de Bizard), we can suggest two secluded sites in an exceptional setting, far from the beaten track, where you can enjoy a private swimming pool. A tennis court and lakes for fishing are also available on the estate. Beyond any doubt, these are bucolic, warm and welcoming places you will want to talk about, or keep a secret… to discover the joys of coming back again.
