Holiday Rental House
'Les Balcons' is a substantial 3 bedroom Loire Valley house over two floors with a delightful raised balcony offering lovely views, giving you a countryside feel but with all the village amenities. There is also a 'Juliet' balcony off one of the bedrooms. The house is located in the charming village of Le Grand Pressigny in Southern Touraine within the Centre - Val de Loire region in France. From your Loire Valley house it is only a few minutes walk to the village centre with its restaurants, bars and shops. The village’s location halfway between the cities of Tours and Poitiers makes it an ideal base to explore the Loire Valley, its many chateaux and pretty villages, as well as the department of Vienne, where you can visit the theme park of Futuroscope. The nearest chateaux at La Guerche...'Les Balcons' is a substantial 3 bedroom Loire Valley house over two floors with a delightful raised balcony offering lovely views, giving you a countryside feel but with all the village amenities.

The nearest chateaux at La Guerche and Le Grand Pressigny, itself, are only minutes away. You can have a true French experience as it is relatively 'tourist free' but still take advantage of all this beautiful area has to offer, everything from picturesque villages, citadel towns (many with their own chateau), sandy beaches by beautiful lakes, safari parks and troglodytes.

About the neighbourhood
The village of Le Grand Pressigny, in the Southern Touraine region of the Loire Valley, with its chateau ruins and prehistoric history is not only a destination for Palaeontologists but also the discerning tourist. The village has a charm of its own plus all the practical features of an active community such as a bank, pharmacist, doctor, butcher, baker, grocer, tabac / newsagent, florist, hairdresser and hardware store. There are three bars in Le Grand Pressigny 'Chez L' the ' Prehisto' to link to the town's history and one in 'Chez Grand Ma' restaurant. 'Chez L; offers pizza and burgers to fill a niche.
Getting around
What to expect and how to stay legal. Driving in France can be a great pleasure (endless, mostly straight, quiet country roads) or sheer madness (ring-roads & rush-hours in any big city). . For most people travelling in France on holiday, they are more likely to experience the quieter more rural parts of France as drivers. However, wherever you drive some basic laws and common-sense tips apply: •It is compulsory for front and rear seatbelts to be worn.
