About the property

This typical country house for 4 people is located on the hills of a picturesque troglodyte village of the Cher valley, between vineyards of Touraine and river. Surrounded by a unique set of caves in limestone, decorated with a small south facing garden, it has recently been renovated in an artistic mind.

It is ideally located to discover the Renaissance castles of the Loire - Chenonceau, Amboise, Chaumont are about 15 km - and the vineyards of Touraine, Montlouis and Vouvray. The Beauval Zoo (first zoo in France and known for its pandas) is also very close.

The Cher offers many walking opportunities for pedestrians and vélocyclistes.

- A bedroom with a double bed (180 * 190), storage space, velux

A sunny garden with garden table and chairs, barbecue. A set of caves in limestone.

A great house and location

  • 5 of 5

My family completely enjoyed our stay in this Bourre house. The accommodations were exactly as described and were very comfortable for our family of 4. We were greeted by friends of the owner upon our arrival and were toured through the nicely maintained house and yard which also has interesting small caves as is common in this area of France. The town had a good bakery and small grocery within walking distance of the home which provided our French breakfast needs daily. A great restaurant (Les 2 Caves) is just down the street from the house and served great French cuisine at good prices and you get to eat in a very nice cave! Exploring the area from the house by car was easy as Montrichard was just a few minutes away and the Amboise Castle and Chenenceau Caslte were about 20 minutes away on beautiful back roads. I recommend this home for a great vacation.

Agréable maison en haut d'un village pitoresque

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié la maison et son cadre dans un village avec des maisons troglodytes.

Emplacement idéal pour visiter les châteaux de la Loire, dont nous avons particulièrement apprécié l'exposition d'artistes paysagers dans les jardins du château de Chaumont sur Loire, but principal de notre visite.

Petit bémol: le manque de wifi, car même si on veut être coupé du monde pendant les vacances, il y a malheureusement à notre époque quelques impératifs qui font qu'on est besoin d'être connecté.

Erholsame und abwechslungsreiche Tage

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben das niedliche Haus, den netten Garten und die unglaubliche Ruhe sehr genossen. Aufgrund der Lage haben wir viele Ausflüge zu den verschiedenen Schlössern an Cher und Loire gemacht (mit Rad und Auto). Frankreich & die netten Menschen fort haben uns als Urlaubsland wieder begeistert. Miriam & Familie

Très bon séjour!

La maison est très au calme et bien aménagée. Idéalement située au centre du domaine des châteaux de la Loire, nous y avons passé une très bonne semaine.
