La Chantepierre - 'Singing Stones'. A beautiful holiday home in stunning location. Sleeps 10
Set in 1 acre of mature gardens with its own private 10 x 5m pool, La Chantepierre is an idyllic holiday retreat.
Located about 40km from the fashionable and historic chateaux towns of Saumur and Tours, it is an ideal base for exploring the many chateaux and vineyards for which the region is famed.
Within walking distance (1km) is the village shop and bar, and nearby are the wonderful market towns of Noyant and Bourgeil.
The property itself is beautifully presented and offers a very well equipped kitchen and utility room with washing machine and dishwasher. Downstairs there is also a large family bathroom and a children's games room with air hockey, football table, darts, and basketball. There is also indoor/outdoor table tennis.
Off the kitchen is an extremely spacious and well furnished lounge and dining room. From the lounge a large oak door leads through to the guest suite, which comprises a fabulous king size bedroom with sitting area and additional (optional) childs bed; en-suite shower and WC; and upstairs a seperate private twin bedded room.
Back in the sitting room, another set of stairs lead to a galleried landing that provides a further sitting or play area, and a sofa bed provides the option for an additional 2 guests.
Also upstairs is a lovely twin bedroom with a double and single bed, and the master king size bedroom. There is also a lovely family bathroom wth a claw foot bath and French shower.
Outside, the magnificent garden gives a great sense of privacy, peace and tranquility. Outdoor table tennis, football goals, swings and slides are available. Bikes are available as cycling is popular in this part of the Loire due largely to its flat landscape and open countryside.
Back in the house, a range of games, DVDs, books and a large selection of CDs are available for guests enjoyment. The sitting room features a TV with UK satellite; DVD; Hi-fi system; and broadband internet access. There is also a Playstation.
Nearby there is fishing, walking and cycling routes, shopping, restaurants, vineyards, chateaux, woodland, water sports and children's parks. Or if you prefer you can simply relax and do nothing!
