Description

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Montrésor - Chateau Alarie

The local area has a rich heritage boasting garden and flower shows

Chateau Alarie is a stunning French castle with deep roots in the history of the region. Here you’ll find traditional luxury, and an authentic experience yet with plenty of amenities close by in the picturesque town of Villeloin-Coulangé and an array of modern comforts on site.

The house was, until the French Revolution, the residence of the Abbots of the Benedictine Monastery of St-Sauveur in Villeloin-Coulangé, founded in 850 AD in the reign of Charles the Bald. Situated South of the Loire Valley, the area attracted the Kings of France who came to hunt boar and deer in the surrounding forests and Louis XI, on one of his visits, stayed in the house.

This is where Charles VII kept the first official royal mistress, Agnes Sorel, from whom much of the royalty of Europe is descended, and where Joan of Arc persuaded him to go to Reim to be consecrated in 1429. There is a bi-weekly market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, much enlivened by an active café life with the arrival of crowds of shoppers from the surrounding area who come to buy their provisions and socialise while doing so.

One of the attractions of the area is its proximity to not only the chateaux of the Loire but also many churches, abbeys and historic gardens, without itself being too much of a tourist destination, though the neighbouring village of Montrésor (2.5 km), categorised as one of the most beautiful villages of France, boasts an agreeable restaurant/bar, a mini-supermarket, bakery, chemist, and petrol pump.

For daily requirements, such as fresh produce, bread, newspapers etc, Villeloin itself has all this within a few paces walk, whilst for more serious shopping, Loches is 19 km away, with two large supermarkets, and all the amenities of a small provincial town. Loches itself is a place of substantial historical significance, with its massive defensive keep, chateau and royal residence, and cathedral.

The main transport hub in the area is Tours, about 50 minutes drive, where there is a small airport and rail link to Paris (56 minutes) and southwards by TGV. Tours is also connected by regular bus service to Loches, and Eurostar/TGV from London via Paris or Lille is some six hours, whilst driving from Calais is in total about six and a half hours with good motorways all the way until about half an hour from Villeloin. An additional facility available is a secure underground parking space operated by remote next to Tours station, useful for leaving a car if travelling to Paris or elsewhere by train.
