Beautiful stone cottage in the heart of the village offers fully equipped gourmet farmhouse kitchen; cosy living room with wood burning stove and door to the patio and garden, two double bedrooms, one with additional bed and baby cot for children; upstairs bathroom and downstairs shower room and separate WC. We bought the property in 1998 and fully restored this lovely house in 2004. There is a large garden with fruit trees and lawns. Our cottage is in the centre of Bourre on the hillside behind the main street; wonderful views across the Cher Valley.

The cottage has a fully fitted and equipped gourmet kitchen, a luxurious bathroom and downstairs shower room, separate WC; beautifully appointed bedrooms with best quality bedding (we offer a linen service and cleaning).

About Ann Palmer

I am a private owner living in England but who loves France and the way of life. John and I visit the cottages several times a year to ensure all is going well and to have a lovely time there ourselves and with our family. I spend a lot of time painting while I am there and John looks after the maintenance. We are both retired doctors though when we bought the cottages we were very busy now we have more time to enjoy our lovely home.

Ann Palmer purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Ann Palmer chose Bourre

We bought this lovely place as we thought it ideal for our visitors. We already had the three cottages in Vrigny and had been running a lovely house in St Aignan; however we felt this house did not have the sitting out space which our visitors needed and so we set about searching for something with w/ view and with some garden space. Our properties in Bourre fit this completely; we have amazing views of the valley, excellent access to the river and village and privacy for our visitors. On top of that we have a neighbour who has taken us to heart and really looks after your visitors. She is amazing. Do come!

What makes this cottage unique

We are centrally situated for visiting the historic Loire Valley châteaux; near to Chenonceau the second most visited château in France. Away from it all location in quiet village with stunning views across the river and valley. Bourre is the village where they quarried the unique white stone to build the châteaux - floating the stones down the river on barges, Today the caves are used to grow mushrooms and make champagne; you can also see the old Troglydite houses in the village. The two cottages are quite different. Especially they are separate and you can spend your time here without seeing each other! or you can enjoy the company of another holiday maker and good friends have been made this way. Maison Requin is higher with a balcony and tremendous views. Maiso la Grange has a secluded terrace under the cherry tree (shade on hot days). There is a large garden shared by the two cottages. We are in the village but up the hill (a short steep walk down for your croissants) and just beyond the main road is the river Cher with its tow path where you can walk right along to Mnotricbard or St Aignan. Up the road are the woods. Along the road towards Chenonceaux (10 min drive) and Tours (half an hour) is Montrichard with everything you could need(excellent supermarkets, shops, market, restaurants. There are now two village restaurants - a steak grill and a posh château restaurant. We are central for the Loire Valley castles and for the vineyards. What more?

Maison Lagrange

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely clean cottage with excellent kitchen and generally extremely well maintained. Very comfortable beds and high quality linen were much appreciated. The view from the garden was lovely and the sounds of birdsong, including a cuckoo, were a pleasure. Only slight quibble was that although the distance to the small shops in the village was relatively short, ie 500 metres, the narrow road was very steep and this meant that, in the heat, the older, non-driving member of our party was effectively unable to enjoy an independent stroll to the village.
Overall, however, this is a delightful holiday let - places to visit are too numerous to mention and there is an abundance of info re restaurants and the like in the guests' handbook. Fitting everything in is the problem!

This was a charming house in a great location. Very peaceful with bird song especially the cuckoo. House very clean and beds very comfortable. Ideal for touring the Chateaux country.

We are in the centre of the Loire Valley château region so lots of history and very interesting castles to visit; we are also in the Touraine wine region and wine tasting, visits to wineries, champagne caves etc. Great food and restaurants locally, good markets.
