  • Descripción


    After years of deliberation, we finally took the decision to move to France and have bought an old property to renovate. The main house has parts going back to the 1700's, and there is also a barn and small cottage in the grounds. Our dream is to renovate and repair the properties to modern standards over the next couple of years. Set in the heart of the Loire Valley, we are right beside the River Cher and close to the Chateaux of Chenonceau, Blois, Amboise and Chambord. The beautiful small town of Montrichard is close by with all the shops you could want - and the amazing ZooParc Beauval ( one of the best zoos in the world ) id only 20 minutes away.
