Marce Sur Esves farmhouse description

La Roche d'Enchaille is a barn conversion located between the medieval market towns of Ligueil and Descartes; ideally positioned for exploring the Loire Valley and its Châteaux. Set in to a hillside with a wood behind, La Roche d'Enchaille enjoys uninterrupted views of the surrounding rolling farmland and woodlands. The accommodation is a careful restoration and conversion of the farm to the Châteaux de Cussay, this dates back to 1268 when the first record of the châteaux can be traced as being sold to Guy the Doyen of St Martin. The main West-facing wall is formed from the original châteaux ramparts and vestiges of these are present through out the grounds as well as entrances to caves and tunnels. The locals swear there is a tunnel linking La Roche d’Enchaille with the Church in the centre of Cussay some 5 km away. The châteaux had several roles during its long history, including operating as a mint striking coinage back in the 16th century and more recently as a “Relais de Post'.
