Chateau and gites on the chateau grounds, is a family run business offering mainly self-catering holiday rental accomodation in the summer to families and groups on holidays to the wonderful Loire valley in France.
They are situated in a pretty village called vernoil le fourrier 20 ms from the beautiful chateau town of saumur. We are in an ideal area for the best weather and lots of tourist sights and beautiful countryside, chateaux and vineyards.
On the chateau grounds we have private parking, private and communal gardens and a luxurious shared heated swimming pool.
We also have our family chateau close to Tours where we run a small stud and competition yard for sports ponies.
