About the Property
Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
Larger towns with supermarkets and cinemas are 15 minute drives North or South on A77, including Cosne-sur-Loire and the beautiful medieval town--La Charite sur Loire. In addition to the standard furnishing, the house has bikes for all sizes, barbeques, garden furniture, and wireless internet. It is a two level house, with upstairs and downstairs entrances. Both upstairs and downstairs enjoy walkout gardens with traditional stone wall enclosures and beautiful trees and flowers. Both upstairs and down have street access and parking as the house is on the corner.
If you are ready for driving visits, Sancerre, Bourges, Vezelay and Nevers are all great day visits--with wine tasting, cathedrals or basilicas, walking malls, and more. During the summer, another great day visit is to the medieval castle reconstruction site--Guedelon-- followed by Saint Fargeau's castle and nightly historical sound and light show. In the summer there are outdoor festivals, markets, fairs, and art exhibits all around the area--which are well documented with signage, at the tourism office, and in the local paper. A bit further long day trips or overnight trips can be made to Paris, the Chateau de Chenonceau, Les Hospices de Beaune and more. For more ideas and images, you can visit our website. The Paris airports are both accessible in two hours by train or car.
The house is fully equipped with everything from outdoor dining furniture to wine glasses, TVs to salt & pepper shakers. Come with your family or friends and enjoy French country living and culture.
Pouilly House has independent upstairs and downstairs access. Please contact us for rates and details to rent just one level of this country home.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: This family-friendly home and garden, has been renovated by my husband and his father, with decorative touches by my father. My kids feel at home here and love coming here, playing and riding bicycles. We spend time here every year as a family and with friends! It is a great vacation home in a wonderful region, which has numerous cultural events and festivals! We really enjoy it regularly and hope you will enjoy and care for it too.
Why the Owner Chose Pouilly-sur-Loire, France:
Our family is franco-american, and we all wanted a place to share and enjoy and relax together. This beautiful, historical site, is also homey and comfortable with a natural setting, in a small yet very vibrant town near Paris. It is well situated only 2 hours from Paris, as well as within an hour or two of hundreds of historical and cultural sites in Burgundy and along the Loire river. It was a perfect choice for our family to grow and to share with new and old friends.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Our family loves to come rest, relax and recover in this home, and relax on our terrace on the spectacular riverfront. The region is beautiful, including hundreds of amazing wineries, "chateaux" nearby, historic sites, festivals, cultural events, and "brocantes" every weekend for antique lovers. We garden, take long walks and bike rides, barbeque, swim in the river, walk into town for delicious wine tasting, coffees or hot cocoa or to the market on Fridays. Pouilly is a way of life!
