    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Nestling in enchanting Touraine countryside, in an idilic location between Chinon and St Maure. L'Eglantine is one of three delightful 18th century stone built cottages set in the grounds of a Maison Bourgeoise with all the comforts of a home from home, including English TV. Relax in the private south facing garden or just laze around the heated swimming pool. Inside has been refurbished to a very high standard, but keeping the original charm and character. The lounge and dining area have original beamed ceilings with French doors opening on to a secluded terrace, south facing cottage garden and a sheltered 'au vent' area, equipped with garden furniture and a BBQ – ideal for those lazy evenings and dining 'al fresco'.
    The kitchen is fully fitted with fridge freezer. co...

We were one of the first families to visit L’Eglantine when it opened in 2000, and since then we have returned on many occasions, also staying in the other properties that have more recently been lovingly restored. We were originally looking for a place to stay within the heart of the Loire Valley. What we found is indeed very special, combining an air of peace and tranquillity. It is indeed the ideal place where you can leave the real world behind and totally relax. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were staying with family. The charming owners - Mike and Linda, are delightful, friendly and offer a very sincere and spontaneous welcome. They are extremely helpful and can provide lots of information and knowledge about the area. The heated pool ( which is Mike’s pride and joy ) is just great, getting the sun all day. There are many things to see and do - from a peaceful wander around Fontevraud Abbey, visiting various chateaux at Villandry... more

We have been coming here for ten years, sometimes more than once a year,
with family and friends or just us. We love the ambience and the area which is packed with things to see and do. We love the gardens and the pool and the cottage has all the comforts and facilities we need to an excellent standard. The hospitality of the owners is unsurpassed, they make each and every holiday here unforgettable.
