Overview

About the property

Pretty and romantic cottage for 2 near Chenonceau in heart of Loire Valley

The treasure of a cottage is in a secluded corner at Vrigny just 4 minutes drive from the Chateau at Chenonceau. It has a romantic mezanine double bedroom under the eaves which balustrade and stairs to downstairs living and well equipped kitchen; garden terrace with own furniture and BBQ looking out on the orchard garden. The cottage is one of three co-located and independent gites in the Loire Valley just minutes from the vineyard with lovely walks and we offer bikes for local cycle routes.

This is a small cottage basically one room down and one up, its ideal for a couple. There is a kitchen on the left as you enter, recently refitted it has excellent facilities including ceramic hob, electric oven, dish washer, washing machine and microwave. To the right as you enter is the living room with double french windows opening onto the secluded private terrace which has sun loungers, table and chairs and BBQ. Upstairs is the feature mezanine double bedroom. Shower room is downstairs off the kitchen.

Our cottage is semi rural on the edge of the vineyards and just a short walk to the river; you can walk or cycle (or jog) for miles across the vineyards or along the river bank, a favourite is to go along to Chenonceau and walk past on the opposite river bank. We are 4 minutes drive from this favourite chateau, and within half an hour of most Loire Valley attractions, local towns include Amboise with its magnificent chateau and Clos de Luce home of Leonardo da Vinci; Loches is a mediaeval town with a chateau fortress and great market. Visit the chateaux, the weine growers of Touraine, Vouvray, Chinon, Bourgeuil, even Sancerrre is within 2 hours drive and the ancient city of Bourges. We have great restaurants within a 5 mile radius.

About Ann

John and I are retired doctors who have owned Vrigny since 1989; with loving care we have restored the old form dwellings to make three beautiful gites. We live in UK and spend about three months in Vrigny ourselves; I am an artist now and enjoy painting in the vineyards and at the chateau while John does everything needed to maintain the cottages to the high standard we have set ourselves. We live in England and come across to France 5 times a year, we are in Vrigny probably 3 months all together, we do hope to see you when you come! We are sorry we are not at the property all the time but have two very good ladies to assist;

Ann purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Ann chose Saint-Georges-sur-Cher

John and I bought this lovely farmstead soon after we moved to the south of England; we wanted somewhere for our family to visit within easy reach of home. We chose Vrigny as it is in the country but not isolated and it is close to Chenonceau our favourite chateau, it is central for visiting all the castles in the Loire Valley and also the vineyards, our local wines are so good and being so close to the vineyards we can participate in the vendange (harvest). We developed the property over the years; the Barn had been in a ruin and we converted it into the prettiest romantic place for a couple to be away from it all. The 3 cottages are independent and you can enjoy your own space, there is also the advantage you will meet some really interesting people - or bring your friends and share two or three cottages together.
