Loire Valley Cottage L1 : "La Touraine"

Our Cottage is part of French History

The beauty and fame of this town has been praised by many French poets, the most famous being François Rabelais, who thought that there could be nothing better than to eat, drink and be merry in his blessed birthplace.  As you wander through the medieval quarter where many important events in French history have taken place, you will discover many quiet corners; and tucked away in one of these our cottage “La Touraine” may be found.

A beautiful old stone house, once part of a Monastery

This attractive stone house with its little courtyard garden, Virginia creeper and mansard roof makes a very comfortable and centrally located base for your explorations of the town and surrounding countryside.

 

On-site parking, grand master bedroom with a stone fireplace and royal atmosphere are just some of the appealing features of the cottage.

 

The cottage is ideal for a couple, and can accommodate an extra visitor, or up to two young children with the visitors' beds supplied.

 

The house is heated throughout, and the bedroom has ducted air-conditioning.
