    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    Our lovingly renovated stone cottage ( 550 square feet) sits at the edge of the ancient forest of Montrichard, in the Loir-Cher, in the Loire Valley. Renowed for the King's (and Queen's castles--think Chenonceau) chateaux for a retreat from Paris and Versailles, this is still a Haven for the 21st century tourist, looking for the same amentities (although much, much more modern--yet still exquisite) and peaceful atmosphere that brought the royality to the region centuries ago.

    Our 'version' is a tuffa stone, terra cotta roofed cottage that sleeps two in comfort (there is a twin bed as well, for a 3rd guest, if needed).

    One enters 'Le Havre' ('The refuge') through double French doors (which overlook the forest) into an open Chestnut beamed celing (18 feet...

Make this a week or two on your bucket list. Karen and Craig wrote the book on class and service. The property is immaculate and you will feel at home in your home away from home. Craig and Karen are also world class sailors that have more stories than Captain Hook. Let the them show you the French countryside most... more

If you have transport this is one the best and relaxing stays I have had in a long time. Karen and Craig were very hospitable and couldn't do enough for us yet were able to leave us to our own devices. It was perfect for us to unwind. The cottage is adorable and has everything you need for a few... more

This was our most recent visit after half a dozen others extending back to1992, when we lived in Munich. The Havre cottage accommodations have only improved over the years, and the new panel heating is a blessing in the sometimes chilly "shoulder" season that we favor. You arrive to a kitchen stocked with provisions with the makings for the next... more

Management response:

We always look forward to Joan and Bruce's visits, because after all of these years, we feel like we are welcoming old friends "home". Each year we do something new to the cottage to improve our returning and new visitor's stays. This year they are new a mattress and pillows. I guess it works..... Hoping the next visit is sooner... more
