This 18th-century ‘longere’ has thick stone walls and a slate roof and is typical of the Touraine region. It’s set in the middle of a large wooded estate where all the buildings have been turned into self-catering properties.
Your property is one of three in a small hamlet, with a shared front lawn and private gardens with dining areas behind – rent all three for a fun family reunion. The narrow kitchen has all you need to cook or drive ten minutes to Sonzay for restaurants.
There’s an enormous shared hearth to sit around in winter, and lots of outdoor adventures on the estate when it’s fine – kayaking and boating in the lake, walking or cycling, a shared heated pool at the main house. The delights of the Loire Valley are close; the vibrant city of Tours is half an hour’s drive away.
