From the owner

Hidden behind oak gates next to L'Eglise Notre Dame in Veniers, 3km from all the amenities of the medieval town of Loudun. La Maison Tumtum Arbre is a delightful self-catering gite for a maximum of 2 people. Sensitively renovated to a high standard in 2017, original oak beams and tuffeau stone walls combine with modern design to create an enchanting space, perfect for a comfortable retreat and base from which to explore the Loire Valley, ‘the garden of France’.

The open plan ground floor provides a well equipped, modern kitchen including a full size cooker, microwave/grill, fridge, dishwasher, crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment, complimented with granite worktops. The dining and lounge area with WiFi, satellite HD TV & DVD leads to bi-fold doors which open out onto the terrace and outdoor cooking area. Outdoor table, chairs and sun loungers are provided. For the winter season electric heating is installed.

A wooden staircase leads to the first floor suite which is furnished with a kingsize framed bed fitted with crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets; there is a dressing table with mirror, hairdryer, wardrobe and a sofa. The ensuite shower room has a rainhead shower cubicle, washbasin and toilet. Towels for indoor and outdoor use are provided. The suite has wooden floors and a feature stone wall.

2019 has seen the completion of our 'Paradise Garden', a wooden arbour and garden bench provide the perfect spot to sit in the sunshine and listen to the gentle fountain.
