There are many chateaux to visit locally and on your way back why not stop by at a vineyard and sample the local wine. This is a place to switch off from busy schedules, with generous spaces to enjoy family time together and plenty of areas to escape and have time for yourself. Although the house has been refurbished (some areas are still under development like the barn and loft) the main original and rustic features of the building have been kept such as fireplaces, floors, stone walls and wood beams which have been incorporated into the decoration and combined with traditional french furniture and modern pieces. There is a large living room with settees and a chair, desk area, log burner, large TV, dvd and music system. You can find a wide selection of DVDs to enjoy quiet nights around the fireplace. More

This is a traditional french farm house in a pretty village. It accommodated 5 easily, and the kitchen/diner is a really family orientated room. The garden is private and feels safe and secure. The property would benefit from a dishwasher and has no WIFI; but...More

About the neighbourhood
Vezieres is a sleepy hamlet amidst farmland and sunflower fields just 18km from the centre of medieval Chinon. In Bounand there is also a local restaurant, general shop (food, wine and tabacco) and a great boucher selling local produce (try the faux-fillet, you wont be dissapointed). Chinon The Chateau at Chinon is a huge medieval fortress that looms high above the River Vienne and the town of Chinon. There are many areas of the fortress that are crumbling, yet there is plenty to see and experience. Historically, it was once owned by Richard the Lionheart and it is where Joan of Arc came to plead with Charles VII for an army. Definitely worth seeing. Make sure to take a walk through the town below - it's beautiful.There is always something going on in Chinon - a weekly market selling f...
