Beautiful manor house cottage in the Loire Valley

Authentic Loire Valley is a historic property, built as the manor house to a grand 12th-century castle and is overflowing with much sought-after cachet. It is set in the scenic Loire-Anjou-Touraine regional nature park and is well located for discovering the region’s unique architectural, cultural and historical heritage.

The theme throughout the property is that of upscale rustic chic. On the ground floor, the living room has traditional features such as exposed beams, stone walls, wooden doors and a large open fireplace, nicely set off by modern touches to create an elegant and refined feel. The colour scheme is natural, soft and soothing; words that can also be used to describe the melodious birdsong that guests will enjoy throughout the day. The watchword here is nature, and everything has been designed to embrace simplicity while capturing the comfort of luxury living in a cleverly lowkey way.

The kitchen is practical and uncluttered, matching stainless steel with stone for a rustic yet modern style. A statement pink light fixture in the dining room cuts through the traditional cottage atmosphere to add a resolutely current slant to the country-chic setting. Alternatively, meals can be enjoyed on the terrace, where an idyllic outdoor dining area provides a romantic backdrop amid the colours and fragrances of carefully tended plants and flowers.

This country cottage has three cosy bedrooms; one downstairs and two upstairs. The downstairs bedroom has a traditional stone floor like in the lounge, is spacious and equipped with twin beds. Upstairs, each of the two  bedrooms have their own welcoming style. The flooring is either old terracotta or oak wood and one has a fireplace. Stone walls and exposed timber beams bring the type of cachet that epitomises a typical French country cottage.

All bedrooms have their own modern en-suite bathroom, recently renovated in mineral hues in keeping with the natural, earthy tones of the property.

The garden of this Loire Valley holiday home is stunning. Along with glimpses of the castle at the bottom of the garden, the huge grounds span almost thirty hectares and are composed of a variety of themed spaces, including a French garden, a Zen meditation garden with a water feature, and a vegetable garden, interspersed with mature trees and scented blooms throughout. The estate also has a heated swimming pool and a tennis court which are open at certain times.
