We stayed in March 2013 with 6 adults on a family holiday. The lovely restored old stone house accomodated us all very well with three large bedrooms and ample living space downstairs. The kitchen was adequate and enabled us to cook up a feast from the Saturday market. The view over the river Cher was simply stunning. As our stay was at the tail end of winter we missed out on enjoying the terrace overlooking the river and the sun drenched courtyard, but the house was warm and inviting.
We made many trips to various chateaux in the area all within a short drive of Saint-Aignan, as well as day trips to outlying caves and wonderful market towns.
The medieval town of Sait-Aignan is amazing with it's ancient church and chateau as the centrepiece. The bakery is fantastic, with the local people accomodating and friendly. There are nice restaurants, good supermarkets and lovely specialist shops as you wander around the ancient streets. A walking tour of the town ( in English ) is run by the local tourism office which opens your eyes to everything that Saint-Aignan has to offer. The Saturday market in the square has great seasonal local produce, and vineyards are a short walk away.
Highly recommended for a Loire Valley indulgence. Everything is right at your doorstep with Alan on hand to ensure you have everything you need.
Situated 50 kilometers south-east of Tours,and 40 kilometres south west of Blois, historic Saint Aignan is an ideal place to experience traditional French culture. With it's wine-industry, a bustling Saturday market offering fresh fish & local produce, numerous restaurants and cafes, and an indoor/outdoor swimming pool all within 5 minutes walk. The medieval collegial (church) features an 11th century crypt with wall paintings dating from that period. While the Chateau commands spectacular views over the river and roof tops. I must not forget the geographical importance of Saint-Aignan relative to important historical sites in the history of France and England,see the burial place of Richard Coeur de Lion at Fontevrault.
The famous Zoo Beauval is 5 minutes away, and the area is famed for it's Chateaux at Chenonceau, Chambord, Amboise,Valençay, & my personnel favourite Chaumont with it's world-renowned view across La Loire, and beautiful gardens.
