On a hill, overlooking the green valley of the Loir, in the midst of a garden full of trees, this family house is facing the 12th century village of Lavardin, with renaissance houses and Romanesque church decorated with frescoes and topped by the ruins of the medieval castle.
The house is very quiet, covered with Virginia creeper. The rooms are full of light.
The sitting room, with its piano, opens up on a large terrace dominating the entire landscape, where on hot summer evenings one can dine facing the sunset with the lit-up castle.
Behind the trees, the swimming pool is oriented full south with shinning sun all day.
Days are leisurely spent between swimming, walking or cycling, and numerous cultural activities.
This house is located in the heart of the Loire wine valley and its castles. Close by are remarkable small troglodyte villages, interesting Romanesque churches, the house of the poet Ronsard, festivals and concerts throughout the summer.
At about 1:20 hour car ride, the well-known “Zoo de Beauval” is hosting the Chinese pandas.
