La Boulangerie was the original bakery in one of the most beautiful villages in France. The village sits on Le Loir river ( a tributary of La Loire), has cobbled streets, a very pretty Romanesque church (St Geneste) with amazing 12th century frescoes, an 11th century ruined chateau standing tall above the village & troglodyte caves. The house has an enclosed courtyard, lovely to sit in on a balmy evening, & has been decorated with a sense of fun but with a view to making your visit a very real French experience. In the summer there is a restaurant on the terrace below the chateau (O' Saveurs Creatives); also a depot de pain ( bread depot) open 6 days a week at 8.30am.In addition it sells patisseries & cheese. Another restaurant is opening in Spring 2019. The village is heritage-listed wh...La Boulangerie was the original bakery in one of the most beautiful villages in France.

Another restaurant is opening in Spring 2019. The village is heritage-listed which has helped to retain its charm. However, Montoire sur le Loir is 5 minutes away by car - with restaurants, 3 supermarkets, post office, banks and service stations. The house is about an hour from many chateaus of the Loire Valley, there are concerts in the evenings, canoeing, cycling ,walking, ballooning, picnicing, visits to wineries and so many sites to visit and adventures to be hadMore

My husband or I are always there to welcome and farewell our guests. That way, we can get to know you, make you feel comfortable to call us if needed ( we live 10 minutes away) and also to familiarise you with the house and the immediate area. We are available to assist in any way we are able but leave you to enjoy your time in the region and at the house at your leisure

About the neighbourhood
The village is 20 mins from very pretty Vendome, with restaurant Le Moulin overlooking an old mill race, a 15th cent lavoir ( communal laundry) + amazing cathedral. 1 hour away are Tours & Amboise, home of the French kings in the 15thc . Leonardo da Vinci spent his last days there & his home is now a museum. From there he designed the Chateau de Chenonceau; others to visit include Cheverny, Azay le Rideau & many more. Canoeing/kayaking; bicycling, walking, ballooning, evening concerts, winery visits, are all available & there is a swimming pool close by. We love Le Piron brasserie at Montoire too & Le Manoir de St Quentin de Troo for a gourmand dining experience
