Situated less than 2 hours South West of Paris, at the entrance to the Loire Valley, this chic self catering cottage lies in the middle of the 100 acre private park of the luxurious Chateau de la Barre. Guests renting the cottage enjoy full use of the woods, meadows, pond and vast walled flower garden, as well as the onsite bicycles, ping pong table and lawn croquet.
The cottage has its own independent access via the XVIth century courtyard and a small garden to dine al fresco. Up a few steps, the entrance door leads into a little hall, opening up into a large living room/dining room with a large stone fireplace and two couches making out into either twin or a king size bed. There is an en suite shower/WC and infrared sauna, and an adjacent fully fitted kitchen.
Up a flight of stairs, there is a large double bedroom, with a big art deco bureau and two massive armchairs, and an en suite Jacuzzi bath with separate WC.
Guests rent the cottage on a weekly basis usually, and will be included in a private tour of the majestic reception rooms of the Chateau, whose owners, Count and Countess Guy and Marnie de Vanssay (their family have lived at Chateau de la Barre for more than 610 years) will be pleased to assist their cottage guests with tips for sightseeing, farmers' markets, shops and restaurants as well as a good local map.
