Location description from owner

The Loire Valley region

Situated in the south part of Touraine, the little town of Descartes in the river La Creuse valley offers a lot of activities: boating, swimming, walking or biking to see the historical places near there. From the prehistoric museum in Le-Grand-Pressigny (10km), the city of Loches and the philosopher Ren Descartes museum in his natal house. The wellknown "microclimat" of Touraine is very adapted for children as it is neither too hot nor cold. The sky has a particular blue color wich inspired writers : Balzac, Ronsard, Alfred de Vigny whose natal house or chosen place are open to visits.

Touraine and Poitou are very typical of the french way of life and allow a lot of visits

“A Jewel in the Crown gives you a real taste of France”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2013

We stayed in this Old 18th Century house which is typically French and has been sympathetically renovated by the Owner. Situated in the pretty village of Descartes, the nearby tourist information with free carpark had very helpful staff. Walking distance to the local shops, restaurants and bars selling fresh produce, all of which are again typically French. The Sunday and night markets are a must. Larger supermarkets are about 2 miles away. The house has many rooms and plenty of history. Our children loved the safe indoor pool and adjacent secluded courtyard garden. The cellar is work in progress but will add to the home comforts when complete. We found the house a great place to enable us to explore the local villages and amenities. Our goal was to get a real taste of France and our expectations were exceeded at Les Vigneaux

We indeed, as it is said, renewed this old house, with the help of craftsmen wishing to maintain the local skills (tiled floors of old clay, coating of lime + sand, hemp thermal insulation, usw..) while maintaining the original aspect of Touraine. Maybe it was disturbing for somebody used to modern housing. That could explain the "terrible" and ununderstandable review the house obtain last week.
