Car: Necessary

Situated 50 kilometers south-east of Tours,and 40 kilometres south west of Blois, historic Saint Aignan is an ideal place to experience traditional French culture. With it's wine-industry, a bustling Saturday market offering fresh fish & local produce, numerous restaurants and cafes, and an indoor/outdoor swimming pool all within 5 minutes walk. The medieval collegial (church) features an 11th century crypt with wall paintings dating from that period. While the Chateau commands spectacular views over the river and roof tops. I must not forget the geographical importance of Saint-Aignan relative to important historical sites in the history of France and England,see the burial place of Richard Coeur de Lion at Fontevrault.

The famous Zoo Beauval is 5 minutes away, and the area is famed for it's Chateaux at Chenonceau, Chambord, Amboise,Valençay, & my personnel favourite Chaumont with it's world-renowned view across La Loire, and beautiful gardens.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: Originally from London, England, my wife Brenda and I moved to France in 2003, following retirement from our soft furnishing/interior design business. We have lived in this area since then, first at Saint-Georges-sur-Cher and now at Saint-Aignan.We have a large family in England and go visiting twice a year.

Why Saint-Aignan, Loir-et-Cher, France:
We purchased this property in 2004. I knew it was for sale, even though there was no board outside or was not being advertised at all. We have carried out extensive renovations as it was totally neglected and in an awful condition. We were nevertheless attracted by it's position overlooking the river Cher, and close proximity to restaurants, bars etc.. Of course, the region speaks for itself, surrounded by the chateaux and vineyards of la Loire, and 5 mins from Zoo Park Beauval.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The house has the benefits associated with Maisons de Maitre. High ceilings, parquet flooring, wall paneling, marble fireplaces, but also comfortably furnished, with modern heating system, electrics, and sanitation.
