About the property

Lovely Old Building, In Wonderful Setting By A Perfect River, Sleeps 4/5

We are in a tiny hamlet 10 mins from the market town of , Chinon very peaceful,with the river to sit and relax by, or many châteaus, and vine yards to go to, in very easy reach, Chinon is a wonderful medieval town, complete with romantic castle, many delicious restaurants, very good local market on Thursday's.

There are two steps from kitchen/sitting room to bedrooms, but we have had people with limited mobility and wheelchair, the bathroom will fit wheelchair in.

Outside is flat and access to the river is fine, please ring me if you want to discuss.

Heaven, garden outside your front door with chairs and table and sunbeds and sunshade,and small private patio also with chairs table, then down to the river terrace more sitting , right by the river, lots of wildlife, birds, and clear water in the river BQ

We have bikes and two rowing boats for you to use freely, and two boule pitches. There are golf courses nearby.

We have tours airport, 50 mins away,and Poitiers just over an hour away, both are served by low cost airlines and car hire available.

The channel ports are about 5/6 depending on how fast you drive

We reckon it's best to have a car, but we have had clients who have managed on our bikes! It's all pretty flat biking.

Ok where to start, great shopping, châteaus, castles, markets ,river tours , canoeing on the river, good biking and walking, wine tasting, beautiful gardens, i.e. villandry, not a weed in site!
