Location description from owner

The Centre-Val de Loire region

Located where the Touraine, Blsois, and Sologne cross borders, the community of Pontlevoy has approximately 1,600 inhabitants and an area of 5,111 hectares

Nestled in the heart of Pontlevoy, the cottage has been entirely renovated in 2013 and prides itself on it's unique and welcoming interior design; an artist's abode
Our village is graced by the majestic Abbey and it's beautiful gardens, not to mention it's proximity to a number of the Chteaux in our region.
The Loire Valley (French: Valle de la Loire, pronounced: [va.le d? la lwa??]), spanning 280 kilometres (170 mi), is located in the middle stretch of the Loire River in central France. Its area comprises about 800 square kilometres (310 sq mi).[1] It is referred to as the Cradle of the French Language, and the Garden of France due to the abundance of vineyards, fruit orchards (such as cherries), and artichoke and asparagus fields, which line the banks of the river.[2] Notable for its historic towns, architecture and wines, the valley has been inhabited since the Middle Palaeolithic period.[1] In 2000, UNESCO added the central part of the Loire River valley to its list of World Heritage Sites.
It's always sunny and nice wheather in Pontlevoy. Nestled between the loire and the cher, the rain never stays too long. And the skies are just spectacular.

Montrichard

The village is located only 200 kms south of Paris, with easy access by TGV (daily direct trains to Paris and Charles de Gaulle) and numerous trains from neighboring towns (Montrichard, Onzain, Blois, Tours…)

We are 25km south of Blois and 40 km from Tours in the heart of the Loire châteaux country.

The village itself is quaint and peaceful, tucked into a landscape of gently rolling hills, cultivated fields, and protected forests.

Biking and taking long walks is a natural past time.
For over 1000 years, Pontlevoy and it's inhabitants have benefited from a micro-climat and the majestic presence of the Abbey whose grounds and gardens include a set of 16 beautiful buildings in the center of the village. There is even a megalith on the outskirts of town.

Trains go from Paris to Blois (15-20 mn from Pontlevoy) almost hourly in less than 90 mn.
TGV from St Pierre des corps (20 miles from the house) takes 45 minutes to central Paris Montparnasse or directly to Charles de Gaulle Airport.
Enjoy the proximity of the chateaux and their local wines (6 of the most famous are located less than 15 minutes away) and discover the quality of life in our picturesque village, unharmed by tourism.

1h30 mn from Paris Porte d'Orléans and you are only 20 minutes away from the Hospital of Blois in case of emergency.

Our village also offers a unique community of people.

For centuries, students have come to the Abbey (now the property of an American entrepreneur that welcomes university programs from all over the world).

In bygone years the nobility sent their youth to the Abbey for their studies and built prestigious homes. Therefore, the village is surrounded by noble properties and lovely gardens, not to mention the stunning countryside. Surrounded by farm lands, all routes seem to lead to Pontlevoy.

“Peaceful and beautiful!”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2013

I can't wait to go back to this charming gite! The decor is stunning - beautiful antiques and original art. My husband and I spent our days exploring the region and our evenings enjoying this lovely retreat. It's so well placed for visiting chateaux and vineyards. And while we discovered some nice restaurants, our favorite evenings were spent cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. We slept like logs in the king-sized bed and the shower was even better than my shower at home! Pamela and her husband could not have provided a more charming welcome. They are artists, and you will fall in love with Pamela's work which graces this little house. We plan to come back when the garden will be in full bloom.
