The House


Believed to have been the site of a hunting lodge associated with the chateau in Azay-le-Rideau, the house was built in the 17th century and later. It house retains much of its original character, while still providing comfortable 21st century accommodation.  The thick stone walls insulate from external temperature changes as well as from noise.  The 2 hectare park surrounding the house furnishes ample space for outdoor dining or just relaxing.  We are happy to provide you with rugs chairs etc and a picnic basket.  Or you can relax and play pétanque while we bar-b-que lunch for you on the terrace. In winter, the salon and the library are more appealing and you are welcome to browse our books, or sit and enjoy an afternoon tea or glass of something warming.

We welcome all. We offer a light bright space close to Azay-le-rideau and other chateaux of the Loire. Our art collection, fine linens and comfortable furnishings will make you feel at home. We include breakfast and are happy to cater for vegetarians. Cooking is one of our great pleasures.

Guest access

The library has an extensive collection of books in English and some in French. This is also where you will find a large television, available for your use. The salon is a comfortable space for guests to sit and chat or read or have a cup of tea or coffee. The breakfast room has some lovely bright artworks to cheer your morining, but is open to guests only in the mornings. If you order the table d'hôte it will be served in the formal dining room.

Other things to note

We have two dogs, a Lagotto Romagnolo and Toy Poodle. Both dogs have wool coats not fur so there is very little likelihood of allergic reactions to them. They are friendly but energetic so you will be greeted with a flurry of excitement and the offer, from the Lagotto, Lucio, to play ball.
