About LEROUX Christophe

Christophe and I own that property since 26 years, Christophe has clearly restored that big property witch was in a very bad state, we both like very much gardening and create a park instead of the field.

LEROUX Christophe purchased this cottage in 1990

Why LEROUX Christophe chose Ports

We choice that property for the character of the building but also for the position on the top of a hill, with panoramic views on a very quiet and beautiful hilly country side.The river is also very important for Christophe, he likes to fish and there is sportive fish in the river.

What makes this cottage unique

We both like old houses and the old buildings in that area call RICHELAIS are very attractive with there close courtyard, there pigeon house built is that typical beautiful whit stone, also the weather is very cool, we can grow plant from the south of France. That's why it is call the garden of France.

A peaceful, relaxing family holiday location

  • 5 of 5

The house is a lovely old building, nicely renovated with lots of original features, comfortably furnished and beautifully clean. The kitchen is small but equipped with all the gadgets you need and there are good modern bathroom facilities with great showers.

We enjoyed most of our meals in the courtyard, beautifully shaded by the mimosa tree. The hotplate/barbeque was put to good use with al frescoe dining on a couple of occasions.

The highlight for us was the pool, which is salt water - no nasty chemicals! We made good use of the many loungers and the spa.

Claudine and Christophe live in the adjoining part of the house, but they were in no way intrusive. They were really helpful and were very generous with the delicious fresh produce from their kitchen garden. There are large well tended grounds open to guests and we enjoyed strolling through the avenues and walk ways.

For any star gazers the skies are light pollution free and provide very clear viewing with the pool side loungers proving very useful for looking up and binocular gazing.

Hello Christophe and Claudine,

it was a nice stay at your home. The pool is really great and the water was warm. The garden is wide and very nice. The rooms in the house are practically and sweet. The kitchen is super. Thanks for the milk, butter, jam, eggs and the very good wine!

Best regards

Jennifer and Christian

bel endroit très retiré

  • 3 of 5

Très joli ensemble d'habitation , sinon les canapés sont vraiment datés et pas confortables du tout, volets inexistants mais pas de vélux occultants non propriétaire nous a trouvé une solution mais bon, çà reste du bidouillage .Voiture obligatoire pour les commerces.

En revanche : vaisselle en nombre, lits impeccables, ménage bien fait, piscine très propre, propriétaires très agréables et qui rendent service avec le sourire.

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions pour votre commentaire. Nous sommes conscient que les rideaux des lucarnes des chambres ne sont pas assez occultants, nous prévoyons d'installer des volets intérieurs qui offriront pour ceux qui le souhaitent un noir total.

My wife and I and our 3 teenage girls had a wonderful visit at Christophe and Claudine's cottage. The place has a wonderful old-world charm yet was very comfortable. With four bedrooms, we all had our own space. The kitchen was fully equipped which allowed us to do our own cooking. We enjoyed the gardens and the pool, and the bikes allowed us to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. We highly recommend this property!
