Saint Victor La Grand’ Maison

Ingrandes, Indre

Historic buildings by a turreted manor house, beautifully renovated to welcome guests in 4 gîtes. Grounds to roam, dreamy river views...


2 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


Such a fabulous setting: sweeping lawns leading gently down to the river, century-old trees standing guard. On a wooded hill in this rolling landscape stands a turretted manor house, and around it, four gites beautifully created from a cluster of old buildings. All have private gardens for lazing around in, you can roam the grounds, swim in the river, and a second pool is being planned (the existing one is for B&B guests only). Choose between the 17th-century ‘L’Orangerie’ with huge elegant windows and state-of-the-art kitchen or ‘La Petite Maison’ with a covered terrace and a sweet river view. Or ‘La Miellerie’ (split into two) which, thanks to its honey-making history, comes with factory-size rooms; beehives were made here, honey processed, and big windows pull in the views. Everywhere, style, elegance and wonderful furnishings chosen by Marie, whose warmth and charm will seduce you. Within reach, Futuroscope, Poitiers, and the Brenne regional park, its numerous lakes resplendent with birds. Come with a party and take over the whole place.

A beautiful chateau in well tended grounds. L'Orangerie features an amazing selection of mid century furniture, with a quirky layout and a very well equipped kitchen. Marie's relaxed approach to sharing her home, together with her perfect English, make her an ideal host for this hidden gem.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Marie Rouet Grandclément

  • While St Victor is the perfect base to visit the "châteaux de la Loire" , a riverside picnic under the 400 year old oak tree makes it difficult to leave the estate... regional product baskets, home made cakes, beautiful local wines...all prepared for you
  • St Victor Hamlet is the perfect place to spend a holiday with friends and family, 5 houses, b&b rooms, 2 pools , a river to canoe on, cooking classes,wine tasting , food markets & brocantes, birds and deers to see at your door step if early bird you are !
  • La Brenne Natural Park, a vast conservation area dotted with lakes & criss-crossed with bridle paths. Too many species of plant & animal to count….a treasure not to be missed. There are organised hikes or you can simply set out on your own with a map
  • The Abbey of Saint-Savin known as the 'Romanesque Sistine Chapel',the Abbey of Saint-Savin is a World Heritage Site near Poitiers that is famed for its many beautiful and well-preserved 11th- and 12th-century murals.
  • Summer sees a 2 month chopin Festival in Nohant ; concerts, exhibits, lectures and theatrical events ommemorate Chopin in the peaceful Berrichon countryside that reminded him so much of his beloved Mazovia in Poland
  • We are one of 5 best foodie retreats in rural France say The Guardian & the Observer."These charming B&Bs, guesthouses and gîtes offer comfortable pitstops on a French adventure, but with mouth-watering regional food and wine they may prove hard to leave"
