About the property

House in Mignac, Nr. Loudun/Chinon, Loire Valley, France - Very Peaceful Location Yet Within Easy Reach Of The Loire Valley

Mignac is a little hamlet situated in the north of Departement 86, so very close to the Loire Valley and all that it has to offer. Loudun is the closest town, however we are within half an hour of Saumur with its famous Cadre Noir Equstrian Centre and Chateaux. It is a renovated farm dwelling which was built on the site of an old troglodyte farm dwelling and in the garden there are lots of shallow caves hollowed out of the tuffeau limestone so a fun place in which children can safely play. There is a swimming pool in the garden.

A new Centre Parcs has opened in 2016, just 8 kms away and you can buy day tickets.

About Diana Porter

James and I live in Northern Ireland. We have 2 grown up children. I adore cooking and am a caterer by profession. We run a small bed and breakfast here in Northern Ireland and love to use local produce as much as possible. We have 2 self catering properties in France. One is in Brittany and one is just south of the Loire so we love to visit France and search for new recipe ideas and try all the delicious food and wine there.

Diana Porter purchased this house in 2006

Why Diana Porter chose Glénouze

We fell in love with the caves and having the private pool is great.

The area is just so full of interest that each time we go we find something else new about it.

In Saumur is the famous Cadre Noir and as my daughter adores horses this is a real favourite haunt.

Chateaux abound in the area and it is a fascinating day out.

The area is also steeped in history from Chinon with the Joan of Arc connections to Fontevraud d'Abbaye where Richard the Lionheart is buried.

The food and the wine aren't so bad either.
