Near Chinon and the small vilage of Lerné is a perfect hide out, our authentic house in the Grande Cheminée. Build in white ‘tufstone’ surrounded by green gardens and terraces. The house has a spaceous, comfortable livingroom on the ground floor with fireplace and well equipped kitchen (with two ovens in the oldfashioned stove). Dishwasher and washingmachine are in the kitchen.
Wooden stairs bring you to the second floor. Two bedrooms and the bathroom with bath and toilet. One of the bedrooms has a terrace adjoining the garden, that is made of different levels. Fruittrees and swimmingpool (7 x 4) are on the ‘second floor’. The house is very private and cannot be seen from the road. It has small villages at a five minutes drive with supermarket and bakery.
The location is very special. La Grande Cheminee is close to Fontefraud and it’s famous Abbey, near Saumur, Chinon and it’s castle and rosegardens, the antiquemarkets of Montsoreau. There are very good restaurants, winetasters can’t believe their luck and the area is famous for its cheeses. Rabelais did not live here by accident!
Visit the many castles , famous for their beauty and gardens and special evenings with music and shows.
The area is also known for it’s golfcourses and horseriders like to visit Saumur. Bicycle-riding is also a a popular sport. The river Loire can be explored by boat.
