About the property

A tastefully restored cottage providing peaceful accommodation

La Riffaudière is a secluded former farm set in 10 acres of pasture and surrounded by arable farmland.

Ideal for a couple wanting a secluded, peaceful and relaxing holiday. The cottage has been fully restored into a comfortable, charming and peaceful home retaining many original features. Snugly located at the end of a quiet lane, and with the nearest neighbour 1/2 kilometre away, it is the perfect country get-away in rural France.

We are blessed with uninterrupted views that take in the surrounding farm land, abundance of wildlife and the Chateau of the nearest village, Le Grand-Pressigny. Because there is very little light pollution around La Riffaudière, on a clear night, one can see the Milky Way in all its glory.

With the village 1km away, this in an ideal setting for a tranquil and relaxing holiday.

The immediate locale and surrounding Loire Valley offers so much from cycling to cheese tasting, fishing and horse riding to vineyards and many, many open Chateaux.

La Riffaudière is a delightful and very spacious 1 double bedroom property. Its careful restoration has produced a a beautiful and comfortable home with the exposed beams, original fireplace and original terracotta floor tiles adding to its charm.

We have created a holiday home that we believe will offer everything you require for a relaxing and tranquil self-catering experience.

• TV with UK satellite

• DVD player

• Free WiFi Internet

• Excellent 3G/4G mobile phone reception

• Fully fitted & equipped kitchen

About Jane Henderson

We decided when we became of retirement age we would like to live here permanently and create a holiday retreat so that others might enjoy the wonderful surroundings in this area.

Jane Henderson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Jane Henderson chose Indre-et-Loire

We instantly loved the Farm and its location and we could see the potential and challenge of renovating the buildings and bringing them back to life. We have spent all our holidays for the last 7 years working on the property to bring it into the present century whilst retaining the charm of the centuries old buildings.

The Farm sits in about 10 acres of land it is a tranquil setting surrounded woods and farmland.

We have had many friends and family visitors who have enjoyed their stays so much we thought we would like to share the experience with a wider audience. So hence here we are.

What makes this cottage unique

We are blessed with uninterrupted views that take in surrounding farm land, an abundance of wild life and the Chateau of the nearest village.

Because there is very little light pollution around the farm, on a clear night you can see the Milky Way in all its glory. The sunrises and sunsets are truly amazing.

The village is only 1km away so fresh croissants for breakfast in minutes! The immediate local and surrounding Loire Valley offers so much from cycling to cheese tasting, fishing and horse riding to vineyards and many Chateaux to visit.

Situated in the village are Tennis courts, swimming pool and playing fields.

The nearest Supermarket is about 15mins drive in Descarte. In the village of La Grand-Pressigny are all the basic amenities: Newsagent, Butcher, Patisserie, Spar, Post Office, Mairie, Pharmacy, Doctor, Bank with ATM plus a small Hotel, a couple of Bars and a small Restaurant.

The Michelin starred La Promenade is in the neighbouring village of Le Petite Pressigny.

Le Grand Pressigny also boasts its own Chateau and museum housing many architectural finds from the local area which is renowned for its prehistoric history and is well worth a visit.

An oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is immaculately presented and thoughtfully equipped

The surrounding open fields, long distance views, dark skies and unbroken silences are a joy

Don't think twice it's alright and you will not be disappointed.Musicians bring your saxophone, or whatever and jam with Davids band with the delightful name " I don't know"

We mustn't extol its virtues too much or it may become so popular that we can't book next time

beautiful cottage with very friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved La Riffaudiere. Jane and David were very helpful and friendly and have made sure that the cottage is well equipped and comfortable.There was a lovely welcome pack awaiting us that we very much appreciated.

We enjoyed walking to the village and the surrounding areas, stopping off at the friendly bars (we especially liked Chez L, the pizza there was delicious).

Thank you Jane and David for a lovely holiday

A great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a place in a great location, very quiet and surrounded by fields but with most things you could need just a short car journey away. The cottage is nicely converted and very comfortable, with nice outdoor seating should you just wish to relax and enjoy the views. The main attractions of ' the Loire' are about an hour drive away although there are many places to visit within a very short distance. We had a wonderful week made even better by fantastic weather. Definitely a place we would like to return to.

The cottage was beautifully decorated, perfectly secluded and incredibly peaceful! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at this amazing place to the second we left we felt welcome, relaxed and happy. The cottage was perfectly done, with everything you could possibly need. The area had so much going for it that a week was not long enough and Jane and David were so lovely. We loved every minute. If I had to describe my perfect week this would be it!

Lovely peaceful, relaxing cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here. The cottage was very peaceful with every amenity we could have asked for. As well as some lovely, hot weather we also managed to coincide our stay with the Bastille Day celebrations where we met up with the owners and enjoyed the fireworks with the rest of the village - which, incidentally, - is very pretty. All in all a lovely place to stay.
