    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.

    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).

This cottage certainly lives up to its recommendations. It is in a beautiful location and is well if somewhat eccentrically appointed. However it does have one main drawback if any of your party are very tall. It is a traditional farmhouse that has been remodelled and as such the ceiling beams are quite low. Also the main bedroom upstairs has... more
