About Martine Descamps

Living in Paris for more that 50 years, previously manager of a Communication Agency for Press, Public Relations and Events, a new way of life was important and I chose the Loire Valley, the area full of History, beautifull landscapes, nice architecture with lime stones buildings, in the very heart of many castles, chateaux, abbeys.

Martine Descamps purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Martine Descamps chose Ligré

The choice of this large property -mid 19th c- was important and necessary to welcome guests from France and foreign countries all around the world.

My private and professional life in Paris and abroad gave me the opportunity to have relationship with many persons from different univers. and I wanted to be able to help my guests to discover the beauty and treasures of my new life area.

What makes this cottage unique

It was a 'love story' with this beautifull house - a gentleman farmer mansion from 1850,- that I decided to transform into a cosy Guest House full of character and originality.

Changes and decoration were a real pleasure, every year modifications give a new life to different aspects of the house or the gardens.

Quiet, peaceful and sunny gardens, open air swimming pool in the back garden provide a 'haven of peace in the Loire Valley'

  • 5 of 5

Martrine is a wonderful host, offering advice on what's best to see and do. We stayed in the self contained Gite which is perfect for families with teenage Children - they have their own bedroom with sitting area and bathroom and the adults likewise in the adjoining building. The separate kitchen / diner / lounge is around 16' x 50' and is super. The courtyard is sunny and private, whilst the pool is a good size with plenty of loungers. Highly recommended by us and we hope to return one day.

Paradise in Ligre

  • 5 of 5

Driving to heaven required Google Maps! But once found we entered a picturesque world of delightful tranquility, greeted by a hostess more like an angel. Nearby are several wonderful vineyards with wine that drinks like medicine, with flavor and mood enhancing! My daughters and I did not want to leave this paradise of tranquility. Enjoy your stay as did we.

A week at le clos de ligre

  • 4 of 5

The property was very good and Martine the perfect host. Everything we needed was there, the rooms were clean, well appointed and spacious. The courtyard outside was private with barbecue, comfortable chairs and tables. The swimming pool was great. We have been renting houses in July in France for 20 years and this is one of the best we have stayed at.
