About the property

The prices quoted on this site are for 'La Maison' (sleeps 4/5 people and has 2 bedrooms).

Our price also INCLUDES:

Bed linen and towels, changeover cleaning, and a 'welcome pack' of local foods, wine and some beers.

If you are a larger party we also have, at additional cost 'Le Cottage' (sleeps 2/3 people and has 1 Bedroom)

Please 'ask Owner a question' to obtain best price for your stay.

The property is situated just 200m from the pretty town of Montrichard, on the banks of the River Cher. There are restaurants, bars and commerce in town and the property faces south so enjoys marvellous sunshine for most of the day.

Tastefully restored using local craftsmen, furnished in eclectic and yet modern style this charming home offers accommodation for up to 8 guests.

Garden furniture is supplied and there is a bar-b-que and 'dipping' pool available for all to use.

The building is split into 2 sections and rental prices vary according to the number of guests staying.

As ideal for mixed age holiday makers as it is for three couples! The two terraces can be integrated and there is plenty of room in La Maison for all to eat and socialise while having the second, self contained area, allows for privacy for those in Le Cottage. From watching a different video/programme, having a quiet kip, to creating a play area, all needs are catered for!

It should be noted that we are on a main road and there is traffic noise at peak periods. We think that this is the norm for any house only 200m from the centre of a town that offers a true experience of the French way of life!

La Maison:

The front door opens into a fully fitted, modern, kitchen where many original features have been retained. There is a gas hob and full size integrated eye level, electric oven/grill, a refrigerator, freezer and a dishwasher.

A wide, hand crafted, stone archway leads to the large open plan dining and sitting rooms with the focal chimney breast, built in a local style, using recovered stone from the rest of the property. Traditional, 'French' double doors lead from the sitting room to the terrace.

The dining room has exposed beams and original, quarry tiled, floor and is furnished with a traditional French table and chairs. Soft furnishings in the sitting room have been sourced in England as well as France and give a cosmopolitan comfortable 'feel' to the room. WiFi is available and there is a TV with video player and a CD player/radio for guests to use. 'Free to Air' satellite programmes and French TV can be viewed and a wide range of videos and CD's are there for you to choose from. In addition there is an iPod/iPhone speaker dock.

A bespoke oak staircase, fabricated locally, leads from the kitchen to the upper floor.

There are two cosy, charming, bedrooms:

The double bedroom features a comfortable standard size bed, plenty of storage and has its own, modern, bathroom with original curved beams. There is a bath(shower over), loo and basin.

A practical, en-suite shower room with modern walk in shower a loo and basin leads to the larger, second bedroom which also has curved beams. There are twin beds which can be linked together as a double bed if preferred and antique English furniture. A single sofa bed is in the room for use if there are more than two children in the party. An English style shaver point and a hairdryer for there for guests use.

Le Cottage:

A cosy, romantic hideaway at the rear of the site. The ground floor comprises a fully fitted, well equipped, kitchen having a full size electric oven, refrigerator and a microwave.

The adjacent, comfortable, living room is through an archway and has a glazed door leading to the secluded terrace. There is WiFi, 'Free to Air' satellite and French TV are available along with a built in DVD player plus a CD player/radio and a selection of DVD's and CD's for guests use. In addition there is an iPod/iPhone speaker dock.

A stone spiral staircase leads from the kitchen to the first floor. The comfortable beamed bedroom has a king size bed and on the landing there is a single bed. The luxury bathroom leads from the landing and contains a bath(shower over), loo and antique pedestal basin. The bathroom has an English style shaver point and a hairdryer is supplied.

Maison joliment rénovée

  • 4 of 5

La maison est joliment rénovée et l'accueil sympathique. En plus, c'est super d'avoir le minimum dans le frigo en arrivant et du pain frais !

La maison est bien entretenue et les enfants ont pu faire de jolis bonhomme de neige dans le jardin clôturé. On peut aussi garer la voiture à l'intérieur...

En plus on est proche du centre ville donc on peut aller à pied faire ses courses.
