Down a winding village lane, tucked between friendly little houses, you’re just minutes away from the silvery Loire. Meet the villagers in Sandra’s bar, or wine, dine and dance the night away in one of the many village fêtes – this house is for the gregarious. Freshly restored to a spick and span standard by English owner Jackie – it’s a real home from home. The king-size bed in the master bedroom and both twins have top of the range mattresses and silk duvets. Both bathrooms are glossily new with generous walk-in Italian showers. The galley kitchen has been thoughtfully stocked with all you need, right down to freezer blocks for your picnic. The snug sitting/dining room opens onto two sheltered terraces – one east-facing for sunny breakfasts, one west-facing for your convivial sundowners. Explore the many famous vineyards, stroll or cycle the towpath or take time out in historic cities and chateaux. Bon viveurs can treat their taste-buds to traditional cuisine and sample fine wines in the many local restaurants. A charming little house which is extremely good value in this famous Loire area.
