                                      Property located in the heart of the Loire Valley Castles area, within the Val de Loire, entered into the World Heritage List by Unesco. It is a site protected for its fauna and flora, and particularly sought after for its heritage. Close to Tours, Amboise and Blois, 3 royal castles emblematic of Val de Loire, the property is also in the heart of a vineyard labelled AOC (Controlled Designation of Origin) Vouvray and AOC Montlouis. Diversity of activities: visit of the Loire and Cher Valley Castles, the parks and gardens of Villandry in Angers, sailing on the royal river.

                                      Life is sweet in the 'garden of France', as we used to call this region, and the weather is favourable to the discovery of its gastronomy and vineyards: Montlouis, Vouvray, Touraine Amboise, Azay de Rideau, Chinon and Bourgueil... as much vineyards as typical villages. The department includes a few villages rated as the prettiest of France: Candé-Saint-Martin, Crissay-sur-Manse and Montrésor. The property, partially troglodytic, is located on the hillside, overhanged by a vineyard: contemporary equipment in a setting of authenticity! One hour away by road from the Futuroscope and Center Park Sologne theme parks.
