Stay with us in the manor house
You will appreciate the peacefulness of the estate, walks in the park, enjoy relaxing time by the pool.
The property includes an 18th century manor house, a farm, several outbuildings, scattered in a 240 acres park. The park itself is located in a vast green area outside the city of Tours, along the Loire valley and within easy reach to some of its most famous castles and vineyards. It is just opposite the road from the golf de Touraine.
A wide private park
A heated pool
... and the story of your host.
At the end of the nineties, I decided to leave Paris and my dear studies to take over my Grand Mother's property and convert it to a Bed & Breakfast. It is quickly identified by the main tourist guides of these times (Michelin guide, Alastar Sawday's, Guide du Routard, Bienvenu au château).
Running this hospitality business, I have had the pleasure to welcome guests from all over the world who come to admire the French heritage in the Loire Valley. I then decided at the end of the years 2000 to extend my accommodation offer to two log cabins perched in the trees of the park. Taking advantage of the presence of majestic and century-old trees, the cabins offer the possibity to live in great intimacy with nature and the surrounding environment. Is it necessary to travel far to feel elsewhere?
