Why Philippe chose Indre-et-Loire

It is where I grew up, ans I studyied and I'm in love of the Loire

A lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the house, which was a great size with lots of character and very well equipped. The garden was lovely and only a few metres from the Loire - all as per photos. We'd definitely return.

This is such a charming place !!!!

The house, typical XIX century house, is very nice, comfortable and clean.

You will really enjoy your dinner & lunch in the garden, in front of the Loire: so wonderful !!!

Moreover, this region, the Loire Valley, is a fantastic place to discover...

We plan to go back very soon

Animated discussions may turn to talk of history, from the exploits of Joan of Arc to the alchemy that arose during the Renaissance from the meeting of the French and Italian cultures.
