About the Property

Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Staying in the Pouilly House is a wonderful experience, with families, friends, or for a romantic, cozy French country experience. This fully furnished and equipped house is over 150 years old, originally built as a Tavern on the Loire river front. Pouilly sur Loire is a lively town and 'vignoble' with wineries at a crossroads between central France and Burgundy. You'll thoroughly enjoy the comfort of this country home, the walkout gardens, the riverfront walks, and biking in the neighborhood or on the bike paths along the river natural reserves. Canoes and kayaks are available for day rentals--with pick up and drop off. There are over 10 Pouilly wineries, a Friday farmer's market, as well as incredible bakeries in a 15 minute walk from the house.

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.

Our house is equipped for family vacations with 7 adult and 3 children's all terrain bicycles, BBQ, fruit trees, and a beautiful walk-out patio and garden with views of the majestic Loire river! Great walking paths, riding trails, canoe and kayak rentals....! More than 15 delicious wineries in walking distance! Wonderful weekly markets in town, and in the nearby towns of La Charite sur Loire and Cosne sur Loire! Delicious restaurants can be found within 1-20 kms--including 2 in Pouilly: Chez Memere and Le Coq Hardy. Nearby is La Ferme des Barreau in Herry--for great duck breast and foie gras! In Cosne sur Loire there is a great goat farm 'La Ferme de Port Aubry' to visit and buy authentic, farm-made Crottin de Chavinol, as well as the pictoresque cycle-rail tracks for a great family ride through the country-side. 45 minutes Northwest is wonderful the medieval castle construction demonstration at Guedelon--worth a day trip! Of course in nearby Charite sur Loire, there are musical festivals and events all summer long; as well as medieval cathedral and city fortress; and the best Specialty Hand-made Chocolates around!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: This family-friendly home and garden, has been renovated by my husband, his father, with decorative touches by my father. We 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!
