Manager info

Touraine Cottages Ltd

Year Purchased: 1998

About: I am a private owner living in England but who loves France and the way of life. John and I visit the cottages several times a year to ensure all is going well and to have a lovely time there ourselves and with our family. I spend a lot of time painting while I am there and John looks after the maintenance. We are both retired doctors though when we bought the cottages we were very busy now we have more time to enjoy our lovely home.

Why Bourré, France:
We bought this lovely place as we thought it ideal for our visitors. We already had the three cottages in Vrigny and had been running a lovely house in St Aignan; however we felt this house did not have the sitting out space which our visitors needed and so we set about searching for something with w/ view and with some garden space. Our properties in Bourre fit this completely; we have amazing views of the valley, excellent access to the river and village and privacy for our visitors. On top of that we have a neighbour who has taken us to heart and really looks after your visitors. She is amazing. Do come!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are centrally situated for visiting the historic Loire Valley châteaux; near to Chenonceau the second most visited château in France. Away from it all location in quiet village with stunning views across the river and valley. Bourre is the village where they quarried the unique white stone to build the châteaux - floating the stones down the river on barges, Today the caves are used to grow mushrooms and make champagne; you can also see the old Troglydite houses in the village. The two cottages are quite different. Especially they are separate and you can spend your time here without seeing each other! or you can enjoy the company of another holiday maker and good friends have been made this way. Maison Requin is higher with a balcony and tremendous views. Maiso la Grange has a secluded terrace under the cherry tree (shade on hot days). There is a large garden shared by the two cottages. We are in the village but up the hill (a short steep walk down for your croissants) and just beyond the main road is the river Cher with its tow path where you can walk right along to Mnotricbard or St Aignan. Up the road are the woods. Along the road towards Chenonceaux (10 min drive) and Tours (half an hour) is Montrichard with everything you could need(excellent supermarkets, shops, market, restaurants. There are now two village restaurants - a steak grill and a posh château restaurant. We are central for the Loire Valley castles and for the vineyards. What more?
