Dating back to the Sixteenth century, this unique property has been fully renovated to provide a peaceful home for you and your family - just a lane runs by and your animals will be happy with their freedom! With a marvellous spacious lounge of 36 square meters - it has a double height ceiling with all the original woodwork on show and two full height, double glazed windows flood the room with light. Wonderful! A wooden spiral staircase leads to an office and bedroom (there is potential to create an extra bedroom)
The kitchen, with open fireplace and original brick bread oven opening, is charming and you have a lovely view of your garden and the field beyond, which remind you that you are amidst beautiful countryside. Just outside, an enclosed private patio area, with barbecue, to enjoy(potential for extending the property).

The magnificent woodland garden has many mature trees and is full of little places to sit and read or relax. In the centre there is a fire pit, where many a merry evening has been had! A little wooden house awaits guests There is a lovely old French sleigh bed and there is electricity there, and a heater for those colder nights so you can lie in bed, open the doors and watch the fire or stars. Incomparable.

Also, a 3m x 4m wooden building, currently being used as an artist`s studio – (Perfect peace, trees and nature) but could easily accommodate a double bed and be used as a further bedroom.

Sitting in a small hamlet in the Loire Valley, this wonderful house has ROUVRES LES BOIS as the nearest village, which has a shop, restaurant (of a very renowned standard), a Post Office, a beautiful lake and a Church, and sits in the triangle created by the towns of VATAN, where there is direct access to the motorway from Paris to Toulouse, LEVROUX, a medieval Market Town with all the shops you`d need, cafes and a good local cultural scene, and VALENCAY where the most beautiful chateau is located. It is the southernmost of the Loire Valley Chateaux and attracts thousands of visitors. It was owned by Talleyrand, Napoleon`s Foreign Minister and it is lovingly preserved by the Commune. These three small French country town between them provide everything you need and if you want to access the big stores, then CHATEAUROUX (pop 50,000) is only a 40 minute drive away.

Around the area are many many walks, through woodlands along trails…..there are proper `rambles`, organised by locals if you feel so inclined. There are many fishing lakes too, where you can fish all day for ….€3! . An hour`s drive away and you could be in the Brenne National Forest, famous for its lake and forests and wildlife.
If you like to go the City, then Tours, Blois and Bourges are within a couple of hours, with their history and monuments and Paris is only 1hr 20 minutes away by train.
There are an estimated 29,000 chateaux in France!! The most magnificent of these are all along the Loire which is an easy drive – about an in hour you can be there - Chenonceau, Cherverny, Chinon, Azay – le Rideau , Chambord….these are just a few, and yours to see and wonder at.
South, at Nohant is the chateau de Georges Sand and a puppet theatre.
It is also half way between the ferry ports and the South of France, and only 15 minute from the motorway. ` Just enjoy the house – spend time in the garden or explore the historic towns and villages, nearly all of which have markets and `brocantes` on a Sunday morning.

Because the house is in the Centre, literally, you can go in any direction and be able to see the best of what France has to offer. Perfect!
