Location

The property is situated in the heart of the lovely small town of Richelieu in superb Loire Valley countryside, 20 minutes to the famous, wine-producing town of Chinon and less than an hour to Saumur and Tours.

Minutes walk to all amenities in the town; several restaurants and bars, supermarket, bakeries, butcher, twice-weekly street market and local interest / produce shops.

Saumur is one of the most charming towns in the whole region. Not too big, not too small. You'll find all amenities there and be spoilt with the choice of café bars and restaurants. Numerous cultural events and fetes during the summer. Great views from the famous château. Well-known riding school has annual shows in July.

Within easy driving distance there are châteaux, each with their own style and charm - from the medieval period through the 19th century.

Writers and painters have been inspired by the castles of the Loire, with the Château d'Ussé being one of the most famous as it was the inspiration for Charles Perrault's folk tale of Sleeping Beauty.

Chinon, its castle overlooking the Vienne and the old town make for a lovely day excursion.

The 12th century Royal Abbey of Fontevraud is where Henry II, Eleanor of Aquitaine and their son, Richard the Lionhearted, are buried.

Saumur has a 9-hole golf course and Fontevraud's 18-hole course is in a beautiful location.

Horse riding, canoeing on the Loire, tennis, biking and more are all available close by. Bike and canoe rentals are easy to arrange.

Reviews

« We had a wonderful time thank you - it was our second visit : the house is great and we love the location. Ali was particularly helpful with restaurant recommendations and places to go too. »  L Finniear

« A wonderful and relaxing holiday. Stunning and interesting house, excellent facilities, lovely and convenient location. Sheer bliss!! »  Australia

« We have all enjoyed staying in your magnificent maison. The house and village of Richelieu is a wonderful location for exploring the Loire Valley which we have all done. The décor of the maison is fantastic and we have taken ideas with us for what we can do in our own houses when we return home. Thank you again for our time here! »  Australia

« We thoroughly enjoyed your lovely house and garden and the luxury of being so close to the quire for bakery and the odd cup of cafe noir or beer. We Wish you well and hope that all your guests enjoy the pleasures like we did. »  Ireland

« Thank you very much. We had a wonderful relaxing stay. The house was magnificent. »  Australia

« We have used Pure France and other similar companies over many years, but I do not believe I have heard how highly rated they thought this particular property was - ever! As a result of the standard of accommodation, gardens and the local surrounding area, we are already trying to see if there is anything which can beat it for next year, especially for standards of finish and value for money (if you can recommend anything similar, please let us know)? I work in the construction industry as a design manager and can see someone has spent a lot of time and effort in getting the best out of this large old building, bringing it up to a high standard with well considered interior design - obviously the owner has considered in a lot of detail. Please pass on our thanks for being able to use the property. »  Hambrook family - Kent, UK
