Property description

Stay in the beautiful hamlet of Le Port, along the river Cher at St. Georges sur Cher, France. The walk/bike-path from the private garden is four and a half kilometers up-river from the Château de Chenonceau. The hamlet is situated on a private drive and is peaceful, beautiful and quiet. The garden has cherry, pear, fig and apple trees.

Built in the 1870's, originally for fishermen journeying the Cher. The house has three bedrooms (two king beds, one queen), an office, family room, large kitchen/dining room, living room, two and a half bathrooms (includes shower and bathtub), fenced garden with patio-deck view of the Cher, outdoor tables and chairs, two minute drive from Chissay train station and 25 minutes to the TGV to Paris (St. Pierre des Corps). Farmers markets in the area virtually every day, flea and antique markets regularly.

Le Port of St. Georges s/Cher is on the south bank, adjacent to Chenonceaux, Chissay, Montrichard, Amboise and Tours. We are surrounded by beautiful villages, centrally situated to the major chateau's of France, surrounded by open farmlands of Van Gogh-esq sunflower and wheat fields. The spring is filled with the fragrance of lilacs and blankets of yellow colza flowers highlighting the landscape. The sunflowers bloom by July and last throughout the Summer. This is a special place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Our family moved to France in 2005 for 1 year, where our son spent the 5th grade at L'École de Pontlevoy in the Loire Valley. Towards the end of this extraordinary year we found the vacation home of our dreams, purchasing this property along the Cher in Le Port (a hamlet of St. Georges sur/Cher). We are only four kilometers east of the Château de Chenonceau and close to Amboise, Montrichard and Pontlevoy. We returned to live in Berkeley, CA, but we spend as much time as possible at our home in the Loire.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is situated on the Cher, where a lovely walk/bike path leads 4KM to the Château de Chenonceau. We have a private, secluded garden, where we spend a lot of time relaxing and eating! We also have a deck above the garden, where you can eat or relax while looking out at the river. We are centrally located for visiting the major Châteaux; French open-markets; biking through lightly traveled country roads along sunflower and wheat fields adorned with big, beautiful sky; swimming, kayaking and other recreational activities; and all within 2 1/2 hours from Paris by train or 3 hours by car.
