Loire Valley, France · Villa · 4 - 5 Bedrooms · 8 - 10 people
The small village of Bréhémont lies thirty minutes drive west of Tours, in the Val de Loire. After crossing the Loire river from the northern, right bank at Langeais with its fortified château, a road to the right leads westward along the river’s left bank. As the road turns, the river comes again into view, and at the same moment, the village of Bréhémont, resplendently white, appears on the horizon, its church spire silhouetted against the sky. This approach to a riverside village is one of the loveliest in France. The village of Bréhémont was once a thriving community bustling with river commerce. Most of this has gone today, vanishing with the demise of river transport a century or more ago, but the decoratively carved façades of the stone buildings in the village centre, still attest to Bréhémont’s charm and former affluence.
The French chateau in Loire Valley was built in the late 17th-century as a farmhouse. Later it had been tastefully renovated by the previous French owners, turning what had once been the entire house into what is now the bedroom wing, and raising the roof to accommodate two additional bedrooms and baths in the former attic. The adjacent barn had been joined to the main chateau structure to form a spacious, high ceilinged living and dining room area, with exposed ceiling beams and huge stone fireplace, a kitchen with its own large fireplace, as well as a library and study on the mezzanine above. The house is now owned by an American couple, who have added to the charm and character of the house with purchases from local antique shops and brocante flea markets.
The luxury French chateau with shuttered windows on the street and a white stone wall with ornamental climbing roses make this Loire Valley property very private, but once through the large wooden gate, guests will find a welcoming courtyard, bordered by trees and beds of flowering bushes. A table and parasol provide the perfect spot for lazy lunches and late afternoon aperitifs, following a day of visiting nearby medieval towns, châteaux and gardens, or sampling wines at area's vineyards. Amenities at the property include TV (not cable), CD player, telephone and internet connection.
