  • Description


    Come and enjoy the serenity of the countryside in an lovely old house with a garden, activities for young and old, not far from Loire Valley Castles, and help me to make the house even more welcoming because I want that my house will become a place for travellers, families who want to rest, those who want to visit the area ...

    The region offers a lot of cultural activities

    I am not as fluent in English as I would like, however, we can exchange about local architecture, social science, sailing...

    I am living in the country, but I am also a sailor, and I can organize and accompany your sailing trip on the Atlantic coast of France.

    Families and animals are welcome provided they get along with my dog :-)
