About The Owner

We are a French-American couple who fell in love with the house and have been lovingly restoring it. Sensitive to the environment, scenery and ancient buildings, we also appreciate the nature and the region that surround us. We spend a lot of time at the house, often with some or all of our 13 grandchildren.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Avoise

We are very attached to our house, which we are restoring with care and attention to its 17th century origins. Renting the house helps us with the costs of the restoration and allows us to share our love for beautiful, ancient homes.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We were seduced by the charm and character of the house, neither of which were damaged by previous bad renovations. La Cour has kept its original period style with many of its original features, such as terra cotta tiles throughout the house (except the kitchen, which has been remodeled), exposed wooden beams on the ceilings of both the ground and 1st floors, a wrought-iron handrail of exceptional quality on the main staircase, wrought-iron handles on the 2-meter high windows, ... The size of the rooms and the height of the ceilings (3.5 meters), the light which fills the house (there are large windows on the north, south and west sides), the protected garden, the pool with its surrounding deck, the special atmosphere one feels at the property all provide us a place of peace and relaxation.
