Overview

About the property

Farmhouse in Civray-de-Touraine, near Chenonceau Castle, France - Spacious Interior, Quiet Surroundings, 10 Minutes Walk To Chenonceau Castle

Centfeuilles is an old 'tourangelle'19th century stone wall farm only 2 km away from the amazing bridge-shape Renaissance castle of Chenonceau, in a wine growing hamlet. An atmosphere of the past, a taste of rural life, picturesque France at its best! The romantic Cher river will surprise you by demonstrations of hot air balloons flying over the spectacular Unesco cultural landscapes and heritage. But maybe you will prefer taking the easily accessed roads to the town of Tours and its medieval Place Plumereau, then follow in the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci in Amboise or enjoy a rêverie around Francis the first's hunting grounds of Chambord. Why not finish the day in a timeless Auberge and bite into the local gastronomic delights of the “Jardin de la France”.

About Centfeuilles

We both work in the area but enjoy devoting our free time to welcoming guests to the Centfeuilles gîtes, from making them feel at home, to informing them on places to go, events not to miss.

Centfeuilles purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Centfeuilles chose Indre-et-Loire

Renovation finished in 2005.

Seduced by the haven of peace that Centfeuilles represents with easy access to the busier world, we bought the property to share with an international public the pleasures and beauty of this part of the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just spent a few days at Fleur D'Acacia cottage and can honestly say that we enjoyed every moment. We found the cottage very comfortable and located centrally not far from Chenonceau Chateau. A great place to relax at the end of a days sightseeing-particularly in the lovely pool. Our children also enjoyed picking apples, pears, walnuts and chestnuts. Being Australian, they had never roasted chestnuts before, so that was a hit! Our hosts were welcoming and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone considering a stay in the Loire Valley. Jo

"We are two adults and one child age 10 from Ireland. We stayed in Gite d'Acacia for 1 week at the beginning of August 2010. We were very pleasantly surprised with the gite when we arrived. It is more spacious and airy than is suggested by the photos. It has everything you would need for a comfortable stay.
