Since moving here in 2008 we have been offering holiday accommodation (vacation rentals/gites) to visitors to the beautiful Loire Valley here in France, we have grown to love our region, especially la Touraine with a passion. A passion which led to the formation of our website, which although not the most professional site out there (we continue to work on improving it ) hopefully conveys the delights this beautiful part of the country has to offer. When you rent a house or cottage from us you also benefit from our knowledge,which we are happy to share.
Where we adhere to the phrase 'self praise is no honour' we cannot help but be flattered when we receive comments in our guestbooks like the one below.
"Jim and Pauline have been the best hosts - being here to welcome us and offering so many great suggestions about what to do and visit."
'Old Walnut Mill'
The 'Old Walnut Mill' is a delightful 19th century 2 bedroom cottage in the village of Barrou in Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire France. The village sits on the banks of the river Creuse surrounded by rolling countryside. It has welcomed guests from around the world who have enjoyed the ‘French village experience’. In 2016 we had the pleasure of receiving gifted painters who enjoyed the many opportunities to capture images of this very pretty part of France. The house is within walking distance of the village amenities, the restaurant, boulangerie, butcher and convenience store.
Quality two storey 3 bedroom Loire Valley house for rent in the popular village of Le Grand Pressigny in the department of Indre et Loire, France. The village’s location makes it an ideal base to explore the Loire Valley, its chateaux and other delights as well many of the attractions of the neighbouring department of Vienne such as Futuroscope. The village itself has a restaurant, two bars, boulangerie (baker) boucherie (butcher) and épicier (grocer) pharmacy and newsagent all within walking distance of the house.
Lovely riverside barn conversion with separate 'petite maison'. The house is in the village of Barrou, in the department of Indre et Loire, France and as the name suggests 'Le Bourg' is located in the centre of the village. Its situation means you have the benefits of experiencing a small French village but you are also ideally placed to visit all the major attractions of the Loire valley plus some of the highlights of the neighbouring department of 'Vienne'
