Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Montlouis-sur-Loire

Ideally located between Tours and Amboise this old vineyard house of the 18th century have preserved many old items open for your holiday in an authentic setting.

At the heart of a village of Montlouis sur Loire this house allows you to be in the country while enjoying the benefits of the city. Fields and vineyards are 300m with many walking opportunities.

The cellars of local producers will allow you to discover or rediscover the white wine Montlouis made from grape 'Chenin'

The house is also located on the Loire bike path and surrounded by numerous castles. It is so close to the castle of Amboise, the home of Leonardo da Vinci, the city of Tours, the Château de Chenonceau, but also the royal city of Loches, the castle of Azay le Rideau, the fortress Royal Chinon and the Chateau de Chaumont with its garden festival.

The house is 1km from the Loire, the river that will conquer you during walks or canoe.

Wonderful, quiet house

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice. We stayed there two weeks and totally enjoyed our time there. The kitchen is very easy to cook in with plenty of the things you need. We shopped at market days in Amboise and Chinon, plus staple items from the Super U. Gilles was a very responsive and gracious host. We'll be back.

A Gem in the Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse from the 1600s is roomy, spacious and with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Nice kitchen and laundry facilities, perfect for cooking meals and washing all the dirty clothes after our long trip in Paris. The main dining area has a massive wooden table and fireplace. Beautiful gardens, two outdoor seating areas under arbors, a historic bread oven and its very own wine cave. The stone walls and tile floors are a little chilly on cold days, so bring a sweater and warm socks.

The owner has a helper nearby to facilitate matters. Linda is a gem. She troubleshot any issues we had during our stay, and was very cheerful. But it is essential to have a French speaker in your party to effectively communicate with both the owner and Linda. Or at least a decent translation app on your phone or computer. We stayed in late October, so the hot tub was drained for the season. Complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival is a nice touch.

About Montlouis sur Loire: Located almost in the Tours suburbs, this rental is a short drive away from Leonardo da Vinci's house in Amboise and the Château de Chenonceau. Everything else is a 45 minute to an hour's drive away, so it's a great central hub for seeing the Loire area. There's a Super U supermarket a two minute drive away, so groceries and gas are no problem. There are also about four bakeries in town for fresh, hot croissants and baguettes in the morning. Be sure to check out the boulangerie with an automatic baguette dispenser on the outside wall. Looks like an ATM, but dispenses hot French bread 24/7!

There are also two post offices for mailing gifts back home. Downside to Montlouis: all the restaurants have gone out of business or were shut for the season, so eating out means driving to Vouvray or Amboise. Lots of wine tasting and wine cave tours nearby. Be sure to try all the local whites, rosés and Crémants sparkling wines. And the yummy goat cheeses! All the local varieties are available at the Super U.

Be prepared to provision the VRBO with your own staples and basics. There is a limited pantry drawer stocked with some coffee and tea. But you're going to have to run to the Super U for extra toilet paper, groceries, etc. It's not a hotel, so no big deal.

To use this rental, you're going to need a car and a GPS. The streets are Medieval, frequently one way. And France has a frenzied love affair with endless traffic circles. Public transit won't take you very far and will take you back to Tours.

Owner's Response: Merci pour ce long et gentil commentaire. Je suis désolé que vous ayez eut froid car la cheminée aurait dû largement réchauffer la maison. J’espère vous revoir bientôt en Touraine Thank you for this long and nice comment . I am sorry you felt cold because the fire should have largely warm home. I hope to see you soon in Touraine

Super Agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer le week-end du 11 novembre (3 jours) pour fêter un anniversaire dans cette confortable demeure rénovée avec beaucoup de goût tout en conservant le charme du passé. Elle offre tout le confort et la place nécessaires pour accueillir agréablement jusqu'à 12 personnes. Pas de dortoir mais de jolies chambres permettent de conserver son intimité. Il y fait bon vivre.

Compte tenu de la météo pas géniale pendant notre séjour nous n'avons malheureusement pas pu profiter du grand et joli jardin.

La description faite sur le site correspond en tous points à ce que nous avons trouvé et nous n'avons pas été déçus.

Le propriétaire, Monsieur Richet, est particulièrement agréable et répond dans les plus brefs délais aux questions qui lui sont posées. Et l'accueil qui nous a été fait par Linda a été des plus charmants. Nous les en remercions très vivement.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location et nous ne manquerons pas d'y revenir si l'occasion se présente.

Absolument parfait

Cette location correspondait exactement à ce qu'on attendait; une maison assez grande, au calme, près des la Loire, des châteaux .. et des caves. une adresse à conseiller et à retenir..

Agréable résidence

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent week-end de l'Ascension dans cette belle maison typique, bien rénovée, confortable et bien équipée, avec son grand jardin agréable et accueillant. Proche des commerces de Montlouis, idéal pour la visite des châteaux, villages et vignobles de la Loire.
