Rainbow Arch is beautifully restored and finished to a very high standard. Superb lighting, large modern kitchen/living area and underfloor heating for cooler periods are some of the many features of this delightful house, which still retains its attractive white stone and wooden timbers. Attention to detail was a priority in its design, and it also incorporates facilities for people with reduced mobility. There is one bedroom on the first floor with and en suite bathroom. The other larger bedroom is on the ground floor and has a very spacious ensuite bathroom. There is a TV in both bedrooms as well as in the spacious living and dining area. The white stone walled private terrace and garden is ideal for barbeques, relaxing (and ensures that any young children are safely contained!). The terrace area is also well equipped with sun loungers, dining table and chairs plus umbrellas for sunnier days and even a gas heater for the cooler spring and autumn evenings. Sleeps 2 to 4 people
Les Arches de Muschamp are lovingly restored original stone buildings set in gently rolling countryside between the historic towns of LOCHES and CHINON. The property is on the edge of a small hamlet just 1 km from the typically french village of CUSSAY. Having undergone a total restoration in 2013 MUSCHAMP ARCHES has kept all its original charm but has been designed with utmost comfort in mind. Attention to detail is the key and in these properties you should find everything you need in a rental home, done in a style that 'makes you smile'! Even the lighting has been well thought out, so that you can 'enjoy' at whatever time of day.
Outside space is also most important when you are on holiday. The terraces and outdoor areas are superbly equipped. Upmarket comfortable outdoor furniture including tables, chairs, gasbarbeque, parasols and sun loungers have all been positioned in the private walled gardens. Plus modern patio heaters are positioned for the cooler evening.
Rental includes no extra hidden charges, all bed linen and towels are provided so on arrival your beds are made up, all you have to do is put down your bags and relax.
The properties have underfloor heating for the cooler months and Angel's Arch has a wood burning stove for cosy autumn/winter evenings. The outdoor patio heaters prolong the outdoor living and there are electric fans if you need to cool off in very hot weather.
Comprehensive guest notes help you quickly find all the local interest sites including recommended restaurants and local festivities. If you need any help to organise a day out, book a restaurant or just generally finding your way around, no problem. There is always assistance available!

We have been living permanently in France for the last 10 years. My husband and I both speak very good French. We actually run a horse breeding farm just 1 Km away from the property where the holiday homes are situated. So we are very familiar with the area and are happy to recommend local restaurants, vineyards, chateaux & interesting places to visit as well as local events. We can recommend a personal itinerary and gourmet food and wine tours by request
Janet Scollay purchased this house in 2006
Cussay is a great location as there is so much to do and see in the area for adults and children alike. We have put alot of time and effort as well as love into the renovation of our property to ensure that it is really comfortable for you and has every modern amenity, but at the same time it retains its unique charm so special in the Loire Valley!
We love the area because it has a good feel about it. People in the shops and villages always say Bonjour and the countryside is always beautiful to the eye, whether it be spring, summer, autumn or even winter. It is so conveniently situated. Close enogh to the larger towns and near to all the wonderful Chateaux of the Loire Valley and other attractions. It is so easy to fill a week or two with things to do. You will never run out of things to do or places to visit! Plus it's only one hour to Tours and you can get to Paris from Tours in 55 minutes on the fast train. Tours airport is only 50 minutes drive from CUSSAY. We like the very light evenings (light until 11pm before the longest day of the year) and the 'big' skies are just breath taking. The weather is good too!! The stone built homes that we live in have a charm about them, so all in all it's a great place to be!
The cottage was beautifully presented with all the comforts that you could want for a relaxing holiday. The facilities were first rate with two bathrooms and a well fitted kitchen area. Outside the tables and chairs were great spot to eat and the barbecue a useful feature. We spit our holiday between visiting chateaux and relaxing at the cottage. Our children particularly liked having the gym available to use. Overall a very enjoyable and restful place to stay.
Very clean, spacious, well equipped and not far to drive to the Loire's best chateaux. Lovely welcome from Janet who gave us so much useful advice for visits during our stay, that we didn't have enough time to visit her horses or use the fitness room enough ! Recommended…
