'Les Averries' is a 19th century 'longère' (local type of houses) renovated to a high standard and equipped with all the amenities of modern living. Situated in an east/west position with a terrace on either side of the house, you will enjoy having breakfast basking in the morning sunshine. The grounds are tended by a real garden lover and unusual plants are added every year for all to enjoy. The proximity of a glorious weeping willow offers cool shade and an ideal spot for lunch when the sun is at its zenith. The private heated pool is secured with automatic shutters and fitted with a shower and loungers. Solar panels were installed to provide you with constant hot water and to help our beloved planet in our modest way.
Set within the Loire nature park and a UNESCO world heritage site, the Loire valley is famed for its many châteaux, churches and abbeys. Bourgueil abbey dates back to the 10th C but the most famous, is without a doubt, Fontevraud where the Plantagenet kings, including Richard The Lion Heart, are buried. Within a radius of 20 miles, you will find a great array of châteaux amongst which are Chinon, Azay-le-Rideau, Ussé, Langeais and Saumur to name but a few. The Futuroscope in Poitiers is only 1 hour's drive away. Bourgueil, along with Chinon, produces one of the finest red wines of the Loire. Bourgueil's market, under the age-old 'halles' is also one of those treasured moments that is a feast for the epicurian's palate.
