Location description from owner

The Centre 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.

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 required very little restoration since construction. 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 within a minute or two walk from the house plus swimming, tennis, walking, cycling, boule, and the huge park behind the house is outstanding.

“appearances can be deceiving”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2012

Faces dropped a little when we first arrived -the street looks run down and a bit shoddy.However when the door opened on Les Fleurs it was smiles all round. Every room was beautifully furnished, the kitchen cupboards were full of all those little things that are usually so annoyingly absent (like oil ,spices,soap powder etc ) and the garden was far larger than we expected and very well presented. On closer inspection the street is actually in the process of being "gentrified" and will probably look great in a couple of years. The house is so well appointed and comfortable that we sometimes had difficulty getting everybody out to go places-they just wanted to relax in the garden.

“Lovely house, beautiful garden, great location”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2012

Can't recommend Les Fleurs enough. A truly lovely house, with a beautiful garden, in a great location. Really welcoming feel to the house - decor is very smart but comfortable, essentials are well-provisioned, and everything worked. Lots of space for our party of 6 adults and 2 kids. Kitchen is a really good size, and two of the 3 double bedrooms are especially large. Garden is fantastic, beautifully cared for. The wonderful parkland at the back of the house is huge. Richelieu itself is v.quaint and quiet (at least while we were there). Countless chateaux nearby, plus Fontevraud, the Loire, lido... Our week at Les Fleurs was perfect.
