Property description

Try and imagine the perfect holiday paradise for two with no other "hidden" cottages/apartments to share the pool and garden ... well, this is it!

Les Petites Ouldes, offers you part of a wing of a wonderful manor, set in the heart of châteaux country (less than 2 km away from its crowning jewel, Chenonceaux) where you can relax to your hearts' content.

Valerie will welcome you warmly on your arrival and leaves you a light supper with wine as well as your first French breakfast basics. After that, all you need to do is relax and enjoy the many delights in this part of the world: châteaux, restaurants, wonderful open markets and bakeries, delightful villages and churches, wine tasting, golf or whatever grabs you! Or you may just wish to stay put on your own private terrace or by the pool to read, paint or lounge in the secluded 5 acre garden. Impressive towns such as Tours, Angers, Sancerre and Poitiers are all within a couple of hours' drive.

At certain times of the year there are fabulous music festivals, also ... shopping is always good, in elegant and bustling Tours - only 40 minutes away.

Valerie lives in the main part of the house and is only too happy to give advice and help, but will never invade your privacy. In the eight years of renting, many couples have returned year in and year out and are now good friends, the Visitors' book bears witness to this.

If you wish, and if the season is right - you can buy organic vegetables from Valerie's garden, she will also be happy to cook a meal that you may eat with her, as 'table d'hôte' or in the intimacy of your own accommodation. She also gives inspiring cooking lessons and will prepare dishes from fresh produce for you if you don't feel like cooking.
Now there are heating panels in each room for off season renting. Come in April or October, sightsee without the crowds and curl up after dinner with one of the many good videos available.

Booking is by weekly periods, Wednesday to Wednesday, and is for two people only. You can reach Les Petites Ouldes by car, train and car hire and Ryan Air flies from Stansted UK to Tours where you can hire a car.

Regrettably, pets, children and smokers are not admitted.
