Set in the grounds of the Château de la Vauguyon, these two distinctive, restored properties date from the 12th century. The Dovecote (ref 37142) is furnished in a pleasant rustic style with beams, cool stone walls and a large stone fireplace. Le Théâtre (ref F37167), once a ‘theatre’ of La Vauguyon, stands in a courtyard of buildings, part of, yet independent of, the owner’s château. Both holiday properties enjoy views across vineyards to the château at Chinon in the distance. Chinon also offers an old quarter and fine restaurants. Nearby, discover the picturesque villages of Montsoreau and Candé St. Martin. In the heart of the Touraine wine-growing district, many famous vineyards can be visited. Explore the famous châteaux of the Loire including Villandry, Azay-le-Rideau and Saumur. A wonderful area for cycling, with tracks on the banks of the Loire. There are also marked hiking trails within 400m of the properties. Horse riding, boating and golf nearby.
