The cottage is situated on a very minor road in the village of St.Germain-sur-Vienne (La Chaussée), approximately 10 km west of the picturesque "Cité Médiéval" of Chinon - it serves as an ideal base for touring the area (which is excellent for sightseeing/walking/cycling/wine-tasting) or just relaxing!

Brief description of our property and its setting...

The location of the cottage is quiet whilst not being isolated. The cottage used to be an old "fermette" which has been renovated and modernised over the years. It has a fenced and gated garden to the front and to the side of the property which provides off-road parking as well as an enclosed area for sitting out in, barbecuing and for children to play in.
All rooms (except shower-room areas) have exposed beams and the kitchen has a Touraine-style fireplace.

We have a lady who comes in to clean the cottage after the departure of guests but we obviously appreciate it if guests can leave the cottage as clean and tidy as possible.

We do have some garden furniture (i.e. table and chairs) and there is a barbecue area in the garden.
