Only a short drive to Saumur and Chinon and their famous vineyards, the setting of this semi-detached holiday property can give you the true taste of French rural life at a slow pace with un-crowded roads all year round. The interior is comfortably furnished throughout with leather sofas in the living room and open fire for those cool evenings. There is a large swimming pool with Roman steps which is shared with the owners from mid-June to mid-Sept, a sunny poolside terrace and an attractive sheltered terrace with a large walled barbecue area for outside dining. The owners live in the adjoining property for up to 6 weeks each summer. Just a short drive away are the historical towns, villages and châteaux of the Loire. Visit the busy cosmopolitan towns of Poitiers, home to Futuroscope, and Tours which has entertainment for all the family. This is a wonderful cycling area with tracks alongside the River Loire, horse riding 1.5km, fishing 300m and a 18-hole golf course all available locally.Ground floor: Living room with open fire.
