Full Description

With origins dating back to the 17th and 19th centuries, this charming mansion would work for a family or as a chambre d'hotes project being just 10 minutes from Villandry, a short drive to Tours and with easy access to the rest of the Loire Valley.
The property is well hidden from prying eyes ensuring total privacy for family and guests thanks to its large formal gates and high stone walls. The lower courtyard provides ample parking with direct access to the large former wine cellars, now used as garaging. The two cottages on either side have more recently been used as bed and breakfast and are in good condition, offering a self-contained 2 bedroom cottage whilst opposite has a bedroom and lounge suite on the ground floor and studio apartment upstairs with independent access.
Arriving at the garden level you start to enjoy the valley views and looking up higher you see the imposing “Maison de Maitre” that dominates and overlooks the property. The large sun and dining terrace area is south facing and with direct access to the kitchen is an area that is greatly appreciated and used.
Passing in front of the main building we discover the “summer room” and high pitched extremely light later addition that provides covered dining or a relaxation area. Behind this room is the large main lounge with feature fireplace and bread oven with plenty of natural light enhancing its troglodyte origins. Carved from the rock itself the rear corridor links you to another lounge again troglodyte but this time with a more modern feel to it with smooth finished walls and ceilings and ornate tuffeau fireplace. From this second lounge you have the choice of entering the large family kitchen with sizable larder and access to the study or the dining hall with double fireplaces (with hidden chimneys and picture windows above the mantels making this a large triple aspect room) or finally the hallway with wc and stairs to the upper floors.
The first floor has 2 double bedrooms both with excellent views towards the Loire River and a separate bathroom and wc. The upper floor is home to the master bedroom with private shower room and wc.
Outside , two levels of garden with various storage cellars, orchard and charming terrace areas. There’s another wooded area behind and above the house. Combining this with the courtyard the plot covers nearly 1.5 acres.
An ideal location for a family or B&B project.
