This charming 16th-century manor house is in the centre of the village with a shady courtyard and a winding track leading to woodlands and vineyards.
Véronique has created a haven of serenity inside: the decor is an exuberant mix of formal and informal, contemporary and traditional with muted tones on the walls running throughout. Rooms are a delight, furnished with a simple understated elegance to mirror the historical character of the house.
Steps and pathways entice you through a series of ‘secret’ gardens, doorways cut in high hedges offer intriguing glimpses of the Loire valley, and the enchanting basin pool dug out from the rock face, warmed only by the stone within which it’s encased. Plan your day over a great breakfast in the beamy salon: charming Amboise and its château is a 35-minute walk; hire bikes and take a leisurely cycle along the river to Blois.
