About the property

Once the farm to the Château de Cussay located at the end of a country lane

La Roche d'Enchaille is a barn conversion located between the medieval market towns of Loches and Descartes; ideally positioned for exploring the Loire Valley and its Château. Set in to a hillside with a wood behind, La Roche d'Enchaille enjoys uninterrupted views of the surrounding rolling farmland and woodlands providing peace and tranquility. The accommodation is a careful restoration and conversion of the farm to the Château de Cussay, this dates back to 1268 when the first record of the château can be traced as being sold to Guy the Doyen of St Martin. The main West-facing wall is formed from the original château ramparts and vestiges of these are present through out the grounds as well as entrances to caves and tunnels. The locals swear there is a tunnel linking La Roche d’Enchaille with the Church in the centre of Cussay some 5 km away. The château had several roles during its long history, including operating as a mint striking coinage back in the 16th century and more recently as a “Relais de Post'. It now offers relaxed open plan living with a games room for table tennis and darts, a choice of out door terraces with a hot tub and sun lounges as well as dining areas.

About Elizabeth & Garth Boothroyd

Liz & Garth created the gite at La Roche d'Enchaille together, having both previously worked in the service sector in the UK, Liz being the interior designer and finisher and Garth with his Construction experience undertook the conversion of the original Cow shed, with several additions over the years such as the Hot tub resulting in the comfortable accommodation that is available now.

Elizabeth & Garth Boothroyd purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Elizabeth & Garth Boothroyd chose Cussay

We holidayed here with our 4 children many times and have family connections to the area which always made it a special place for us and the contrast in the pace of life to were we lived in England made it an easy choice for us.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We immediately on the first visit new this was going to be the next special home for us

Make it a 6 star!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this lovely, charming home a 6 star rating I would! We took our children and grandchildren on a 3 week tour of France. By the time we reached the Loire Valley, we were all travel weary. This was the perfect respite; sunflower fields, cows, and sunsets.

On arrival we found a tastefully remodeled, spacious and beautiful home. The kitchen is perfect for cooking and is well stocked. There are toys, games and activities for the children, including an assortment of bicycles, a ping pong table and darts. The decor is simple, beautiful and tasteful as well as having the exceptional quality of not being fussy. I am an interior designer, and have a high standard. This clean and open concept home makes for a perfect gathering place.

Your hosts are available and accommodating, yet you feel you are given the utmost privacy. Castle visiting was fabulous.

My only wish was that we had stayed here longer! Truly wonderful!!!

Lovely Stylish Gite

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely stylish Gite in rolling countryside, and yet only 10 minutes from the supermarket in Ligeul. We enjoyed every moment of our stay (despite appalling weather) and were made to feel very welcome by Elizabeth and Garth.

Finally also recommended to wheelchair users.

Fabulous holiday in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from 10 days stay at La Roche d'Enchaille. There were 6 adults and 2 small children in our party, and the gite catered for all of our needs. Everything we needed was right there for us; a superbly stocked kitchen, plenty of living space and beds for everyone. We were particularly impressed with the range of toys and books for our two children, aged 3 and 6. The house was perfect for the children with a huge amount of outdoor space, boules pitch, table tennis, darts, bikes etc. The gite has been restored to a very high standard, was very clean and the owners Garth & Elizabeth were on hand to assist whenever required without being obtrusive. Buster the friendly dog was a big hit with the kids too! Plenty of places nearby to visit; however we were just as happy to relax at the house. The sunsets over the surrounding fields are amazing! We would not hesitate in recommending it to others. Thank you Garth & Elizabeth for a most enjoyable holiday.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location and superbly equipped accommodation. The downstairs bedroom and shower room were particularly appreciated by my elderly mother. She lovely the fact that there was no step into the shower and the non-slip shower tray and described it as 'a luxury wet room which I will miss'. The kitchen was equipped to a high standard with a massive cooker, very good dishwasher and fridge. Upstairs bedrooms were very comfortable. Lots of lovely touches such as freshly laundered napkins, lovely cotton sheets with lots of pillows, piles of towels and bath mats, fresh flowers, etc. the terrace was lovely to sit on to watch the owl, kestrels, swallows, bantams, and the cows in the field. Buster is quite a character and we miss him already! Liz and Garth are great hosts and very attentive, whilst at the same time letting us feel we were totally on our own and we loved the peace and tranquility. Shops were close by and also great access to the road network which made the journey so simple. The only thing we would change would be the length of the stay - it was far too short - and we would have liked to have missed the gale in the English Channel on the way home!
