The Loire Valley region

Known as the garden of France, the Southern Loire has a temperate climate. Classified as part of the World Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO, it is usually warm from April - October with Winter's relatively mild with less rainfall than areas North of the Loire river.

The garden and terrace of the house is a real sun trap and we have experienced temperatures well into the 30's from June - September.

The area is characterised by many chateaux and wine cave's the famous being Chinon red wines and delicate whites of the Touraine.

Tours (a mini Paris) is within 30 minutes drive of the house, as are the outstanding chateaux of Villandry and Azay-le-Rideau. The beautiful towns of Chinon and Saumur are within 20 and 40 minutes drive respectively. The Loire Valley is famous for its fairytale chateau's, stunning scenery and quality wine production.


Champigny sur Veude is a one of the prettiest villages in the Loire Valley with a beautiful privately owned Chateau and a Chapel Royale. The house is within an area protected as a historic national monument. The village has retained it's shops, 2 boulangeries, an Alimentation, coiffeur, pharmacie, restaurant and bar.

Our closest town is Richelieu. This beautiful historical town is surrounded by walls and a moat (now grassed) and is entered via 3 high gates. The Grande Rue (high street) runs North to South with two square shaped place at each end. Around the South place are the church and the covered market both built in 1638 and the Law Court now used as the Town Hall and Museum. The famous " Les Halles" , covered market, ( a colourful market has been held here for 300 years) boasts very fine Chestnut and Oak beams which have been recently restored. A Brocante/Antique Fayre is held in the square on the first Saturday of the month along with frequent art exhibitions. There are numerous bars/restaurants in Richelieu plus swimming, tennis, walking, cycling, boule, and the huge park.
