Holiday Rental House
The 'Old Walnut Mill' is a delightful 19th century Loire Valley house ( 2 bedrooms ) in the village of Barrou in the department of Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire France. 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 and Le Grand Pressigny 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 river beaches, beautiful lakes, safari parks and troglodytes.

There are many self-catering properties to rent for your holiday in France, but this village house in the Loire Valley, all you see, is a complete family home, giving you spacious accommodation and with its history, originally it was a mill for producing walnut oil, has beamed ceilings and tiled floors which help it to retain its French charm. It is private and self-contained in its own courtyard. Accommodation consists of a large lounge and kitchen/diner downstairs and two double bedrooms and large shower-room upstairs. There is a second toilet and shower-room downstairs. You have free WIFI access and international landline telephone calls during your stay.More
