About the owner: We spend about half our year in England and half in this wonderful property in the Loire Valley. The minute we saw this property we felt total peace and tranquility.

No amount of photographs can possibly describe this wonderful hideaway.
The minute you step foot inside the gates the outside world just fades away.
