Cottage of the week – Château de la Vauguyon

We love properties that stand out on cottages4you and from our bookings we know that our customers like them too. So when we took a look at the pics of Château de la Vauguyon we knew we had to make it Cottage of the Week. Not only does this unique property offer stunning architecture and a lovely standard of accommodation, it does so in one of France’s most stunning locations.

Château de la Vauguyon’s striking architectural appearance is thanks to its former occupants. In the 12th century it was a dovecote, which means you get a literal birds eye view of the surrounding landscape. This includes spectacular views of the Chinon château and vineyards.

Thankfully, while it still offers a stunning 12th century exterior, the inside of the property has been sympathetically restored and renovated in a lovely rustic style.  You’ll find beams, high ceilings, expansive stone walls and a large stone fireplace. The first floor has two very large bedrooms, lovely wooden floors and bright furnishings. If you fancy watching the day’s end to the relaxing accompaniment of birdsong, there’s a lovely little sitting out area outside the property.

The surrounding area is bursting with beauty and a wealth of things to see and do. The stunning villages of Montsoreau and Candé St. Martin are close by and, since you’re in the heart of the of the Touraine wine-growing district, it would be remiss of us not to recommend paying a visit to one of the famous local vineyards. If you fancy something a little more energetic we’d recommend the cycle tracks alongside the river Loire. Horse riding, boating and golf are also easily available close to the property.

We would say more but we suspect you’re probably too busy looking at the pics of this beautiful property! If you fancy taking a look at more then visit the property’s listing on cottages4you, where you can also make a booking and read some lovely customer comments.
