    Experience the French country lifestyle at its best and rent "La Menagerie" --a late-18th century stone cottage and former wine-maker house-- in the heart of the Grand Chateau golden triangle (Chambord, Chenonceau and Cheverny) in Central Loire Valley. This is the perfect vacation rental for family reunions, all generations, or a romantic getaway to a French region full of history and culinary tradition, that has been known as the "garden of France" for centuries.
    If you have not already read the reviews from previous guests, please do so. They speak volumes about the home, location, hospitality and they say it more eloquently than I could ever describe here.

    Additional Location Information
    The property is in the heart of the most famous French Renaissance chateaux area (Chambord, Cheverny, Chenonceau). It enjoys a very tranquil location in the countryside, although Chitenay --a lovely village, South of the Loire river-- is at biking distance (5 minutes or so). It is only 10 km from the Chateau de Cheverny and 15 km from the city of Blois.
    The area is abutting the Sologne province, the best hunting grounds in France. This area has produced wines since at least the 6th century. That is why it is sometimes referred to as Sologne Viticole (the wine producing part of Sologne region).
    This is a perfect getaway for a break from bustling cities to the "garden of France", as the kings and queens used to call that region: after all, it is a 2 hours drive from Paris and 40 min. from Tours Airport (47 miles).

After years of traveling together throughout France, my husband and I were finally able this year to introduce our American family (ourselves, our adult children, and two grandchildren) to the travel experience we love the most: French country vacation. I spent months looking for a house that would put us in the middle of fields but close to a village,... more
