The property is situated in 14 hectares of private grounds in open countryside, 10 minutes from the lovely small town of Richelieu in superb Loire Valley countryside, 30 minutes to the famous, wine-producing town of Chinon and less than an hour to Saumur and Tours.
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.
