A wide, hand crafted, stone archway leads to the large open plan dining and sitting rooms with the focal chimney breast, built in a local style, using recovered stone from the rest of the property. Traditional, 'French' double doors lead from the sitting room to the terrace.

The dining room has exposed beams and original, quarry tiled, floor and is furnished with a traditional French table and chairs. Soft furnishings in the sitting room have been sourced in England as well as France and give a cosmopolitan comfortable 'feel' to the room. WiFi is available and there is a TV with video player and a CD player/radio for guests to use. 'Free to Air' satellite programmes can be viewed and a wide range of videos and CD's are there for you to choose from. In addition there is an iPod/iPhone speaker.

A bespoke oak staircase, fabricated locally, leads from the kitchen to the upper floor.

There are two cosy, charming, bedrooms:

The double bedroom features a comfortable standard size bed, plenty of storage and has its own, modern, bathroom with original curved beams. There is a bath(shower over), loo and basin.

A practical, en-suite bathroom with modern walk in shower a loo and basin leads to the larger, second bedroom which also has curved beams. There are twin beds which can be linked together as a double bed if preferred and antique English furniture. An English style shaver point and a hairdryer for there for guests use.

Le Cottage:

A cosy, romantic hideaway at the rear of the site. The ground floor comprises a fully fitted, well equipped, kitchen having a full size electric oven, refrigerator and a microwave.

The adjacent, comfortable, living room is through an archway and has a glazed door leading to the secluded terrace. There is WiFi, 'Free to Air' satellite TV with built in DVD player, a video player plus a CD player/radio and a selection of videos/DVD's and CD's for guests use.

A stone spiral staircase leads from the kitchen to the first floor. The comfortable beamed bedroom has a king size bed and on the landing there is a single bed. The luxury bathroom leads from the landing and contains a bath(shower over), loo and antique pedestal basin. The bathroom has an English style shaver point and a hairdryer is supplied.

The whole property: 36 Rue De Blois (sleeps up to 8)

As ideal for mixed age holiday makers as it is for three couples! The two terraces can be integrated and there is plenty of room in La Maison for all to eat and socialise while having the second, self contained area, allows for privacy for those in Le Cottage. From watching a different video/programme, having a quiet kip, to creating a play area, all needs are catered for!

It should be noted that we are on a main road and there is some traffic noise. We think that this is the norm for any house only 200m from the centre of a town that offers a true experience of the French way of life!

“Fab place outside Montrichard”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2013

A car was not needed once at the property. Walking distance and rail links fab. Beautiful home.would not hesitate to stay again. Truly a great stay. Sarah very helpful too!

“Great accommodation in an ideal location.”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2012

We had a fantastic stay in the Loire Valley thanks to finding this wonderful accommodation at the last minute. Patricia was amazingly helpful, responding to emails quickly and providing us with directions from Tours airport as well as a lovely welcome hamper of local foods, wine and beers. We booked La Maison which is beautifully furnished and decorated with an eclectic feel. It has a well equipped kitchen and a spacious living/dining area with french doors opening onto the garden. The boys (8 and 11 years) had great fun in the splash pool while we soaked up the sun reclining on the loungers after breakfast each day before heading off to one of the chateaux which are all within easy driving distance of the property. We had fantastic days out in Blois, Amboise, Chenonceaux and Loches, the boys particularly enjoyed La Clos du Luce (last home of Leonardo da Vinci) and Loches, both being exceptional value for money with lots to entertain children (interactive models of Leonardo's inventions & falconry, musicians, stilt-walkers and fire-breathers at Loches). Montrichard itself is a beautiful, historic town with markets, shops, restaurants and a 'beach' on the River Cher where you could happily spend a day swimming and sunbathing while the children have fun in the playground or mini funfair - you can also hire kayaks etc at very reasonable rates. The only issue you may have with the house is the restricted head height in the main bathroom but this is to be expected in a property of character and the second bathroom is perfectly adequate. Also, there is persistent road noise through the night, but this is a very small price to pay for being able to stroll into town in the morning to buy beautiful fresh croissants and bread - it really wasn't an issue for us - we soon got used to it and the quality of the accommodation far outweighed any mild inconvenience. I would whole-heartedly recommend staying at this property and, although we didn't see inside Le Cottage, I would imagine it would be perfect if you were a family wanting to holiday with grandparents as you would each have your own space. The quality of the towels and bedding should also be mentioned as they really were excellent. All in all a fantastic place to stay - I only wish we had been able to stay for a fortnight rather than a week - thanks Patricia - Salut!
