The Cottage is a restored, stone-built house giving onto the courtyard of Sommery Castle on one side and lawns on the other. It is situated in southern Burgundy overlooking the Loire and the Loire valley. The Château itself dates from the Romans in 10 AD and has been constantly restored and modified over the centuries. It is surrounded by its own fenced parkland of 50 acres. It is the oldest inhabited château on the Loire.
Tastefully restored, the Cottage accommodates 8. The kitchen is equipped with freezer, fridge, dishwasher and electric cooker. It also has a wood-burning fireplace. Next to the kitchen, the living room has DVD and TV. The terrace has a barbecue with table and benches. The downstairs bathroom has a washer and tumble drier. There is a double bedroom downstairs looking over its own patio.
