Time for something completely unique :: designed by the renowned Vendome town Architect, 'Edouard Marganne', in the 1850s and constructed from the stones reclaimed from the destruction of the Vendome church of St. Martin (of which only the tower still stands and is visible from the upper floors of this property), this 'folie' shows off its Italian inspirations with Romanesque columns, walkways, central 'light well' and mini-Villa guest lodge. Located in possibly the most prestigious and well-known residential areas of Vendome with a no-through road in front and the river behind, a tranquil lifestyle in this bustling city is assured.

The former carriage entrance hall with original double door opens to an imposing tuffeau stoned passageway with arches on either side. The library once the office of the local Notaire is hidden behind one of the doors, with a reading room, wc, boiler room, etc. behind the others with the central one leading to the impressive 'escargot' stairs that wind their way to the upper floors.

The half-landing hides the former servants floor and the former kitchen and washrooms are now comfortably utilised as the offices and storage space for some of the current owner's 30,000 books. The 1st main floor with large lounge and interconnecting dining hall on the south side benefit from plenty of natural light and overlook one of several churches in Vendome. The well equipped kitchen with its balcony overlooks the courtyard and guest lodge below and then over the river behind. There's a wc, utility room and various walk-in storerooms on this floor as well.

Continuing upwards we arrive at the sleeping floor with two south facing bedrooms and two river facing ones with 2 large bathrooms servicing them. The views from any one of these rooms are superb and from the front we look out over the rooftops to the Mayor's office and park and several churches including the tower of St.Martin.

In the attic we discover a more modern use of the former servants quarters with a projector room, gymnasium and various games rooms. An ideal hideaway for the children and teenagers that have enjoyed living here.

To the rear of the main house is the guest lodge with its own independent access and currently run as a successful two bedroom gite with it's own terrace overlooking the river an ideal place to sip wine watching the world go by on the other side of the river or maybe some fishing if that appealed.

There is a sizeable lawn area and some well established trees and shrubs. A useful two room 'dependance' is located on the road side allowing direct access from the garden without passing through the main house.

A truly super location in the heart of this bustling city with excellent access to Paris in less than an hour from the TGV station which is an easy 10 minute drive away (there's even a bus at the end of the road that can take you). The choice of schools is impressive and the two hospitals excellent assets. Vendome with its bistros and cafes as well as large choice in restaurants is becoming increasingly popular with foreigners and Parisians alike all enjoying a 'Paris lifestyle' without the costs, and with the real deal being only a short train ride away.

Viewings are highly recommended as the photos do not do the property justice.

French property in Centre Luxury 6 year old renovation
* Chateau conversion with 5 apartments
* Pool, Spa and Sauna
* Top floor apartment with lift
* Dramatic country views
* 2 parking spaces
* Large garden
* Serviced accommodation

The two lions guarding either side of the entrance watch over you as you press the intercom buzzer for the owner to operate the large electric gates allowing you access to the courtyard and parking. The gardens, box hedges and multitude of rose bushes are all immaculately maintained and the pristine facade of this beautiful 18th century chateau looks over the gardens and countryside beyond.

A ground up renovation was completed less than 6 years ago with the external facades true to their original design. The interior has been sympathetically modernised and today offers 5 spacious apartments and a indoor sports area. The entrance hall is warm and inviting and a glance through the window of the door into the private pool, sauna and spa complex tempt you to explore further. Serviced by a lift we ride to the 2nd floor where we will discover 2 separate apartments, our visit takes us into the left hand one. As the door opens the quality of materials and level of finish we have seen so far continue with an entrance hall leading to a large lounge/dining room with fireplace, tiled and heated flooring and two large windows leading directly to a wonderful south facing terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and big enough for a breakfast table and also benefits from direct access to the terrace, ideal for that morning croissant or al-fresco dining that this area is famous for. A private corridor leads to a single and double bedrooms both with solid parquet floors, the bathroom with jacuzzi bath is large and light and there is a separate wc.

Stairs from the lounge take you to a sizeable landing are with a door leading to a large double bedroom with double aspect views. Across the landing you'll discover an office area and dressing/storage room as well as a shower and wc.

The south terrace is large and has fantastic views over the countryside and nearby woodland and below we overlook the formal gardens with paths and resting areas. The property comes with a wine cellar in the basement and two reserved exterior parking spaces.

The chateau is located on the edge of a quiet residential area with excellent access to a hospital and shopping centre only 10 minutes away. A short drive sees you in Chinon itself with enough restaurants and wine caves to while away many hours. Excellent access to autoroutes to explore France and Europe whilst offering a more than comfortable base in the heart of the Loire Valley, although with the pool, spa and sauna on site coupled with those great views I'm not sure that we'd be rushing off anywhere soon.

This apartment has the best views of any of the 5 in this conversion and we are pleased to offer this rare commodity to our clients. A viewing is highly recommended - but be quick as it's not likely to be around for long.

A well reputed family Hotel built up and modernised during the 37 years the current owner has been running the business. Located in a very popular tourist village nearby to Montoire and Lavardin (one of France's prettiest villages) on the banks of Le Loir. An ideal opportunity for the new owners to walk into a turn key solution for a new life in the Loire Valley. Priced to sell quickly due to the ill health of the current owner this excellent value for money hotel, bar and restaurant is one of the major assets of this attractive historic village. The house originally dates back to the early 1900s but has been completely renewed and a new section added within the last 25 years. Mains drainage and a mix of electric and oil fired heating keep the running costs low and the profits high. Professional materials are included in the sale (furniture, kitchen appliances, etc. etc.)

The accommodation comprises:
Hotel with 9 bedrooms (7 with en-suite bath and wc and 2 with en-suite shower and wc), Bar, breakfast room with separate 'breakfast' kitchen, 2 dining rooms (seating for a max 60 people spread over the two rooms), numerous wc's and cloakrooms, professional kitchen, terrace with outside dining area and reception.

In addition to all this above the bar and one of the dining rooms there are another 6 rooms and 2 smaller ones which could easily become on site owner's accommodation (some redecorating and modernising is required).

To the rear there are 2 very large caves which could be transformed into further dining areas (this style of 'troglodyte' dining is very, very popular in this area and provides an excellent ambiance all year round), there are also a further 2 smaller caves used currently as wine cellars.

The village has all basic amenities and the town of Montoire is a 5 minute drive away. Vendome with its high speed TGV line to Paris (42mins run) is 15 minutes drive - commonly known as 'petit Paris' due to its abundance of Parisians who commute daily.

A great location and opportunity to integrate completely into the French culture whilst also providing the possibility to take over a well established business.

Passing in front of the main building we discover the 'summer room' and high pitched extremely light later addition that provides covered dining or a relaxation area. Behind this room is the large main lounge with feature fireplace and bread oven with plenty of natural light enhancing its troglodyte origins. Carved from the rock itself the rear corridor links you to another lounge again troglodyte but this time with a more modern feel to it with smooth finished walls and ceilings and ornate tuffeau fireplace.

Away from prying eyes this beautiful manoir has oodles of outdoor space created and designed for the owners and their guest to enjoy the maximum from the al-fresco life that this famous part of the Loire Valley has to offer (the climate here is one of the main reasons all those kings and queens of old came to this area). It's hard to remember that we are only a short walk into the heart of the pretty village with well reputed restaurant. Add this to the easy drive into either Tours itself or along the river to Azay Le Rideau and you have to ask what more could you need?

Lovingly restored throughout with great attention to the details this family home provides not only a pleasurable environment to live in but also a very practical one. The main building, with typical of the period high-pitched roof, has tiled floors throughout, with exposed stone walls, beams, solid tuffeau stone fireplace and of course that mandatory underground solid stone arched wine cellar.

Bought over 15 years ago and lovingly restored and renovated from top to bottom by the current owners this elegant chateau of 1500m2 retains many original features (including oak parquet flooring) and its multitude of rooms all enjoy commanding views over the park. Once through the gates the drive passes amongst the woodland allowing you glimpses of the chateau that awaits. The formal sweeping drive leads naturally to a temporary halt in front of the main steps of the chateau before continuing its path past the chapel, guest lodge, stables and then rejoining the woodland route back to the gates.

Once up the steps the view over the front lawn and on to the variety of outbuildings beyond of back through the woodland is well worth a glance. The formal entrance hall is grand with plenty of natural light showing the ornate staircase up to its full glory. The 75m2 salon is double aspect with a large fireplace and period features along with double doors back to the entrance hall or on to the library. Wood-paneled with lovely views over the park to the rear the library has a door into the tower room, a circular double aspect room ideal for relaxing and unwinding with charming 'star' set into the parquet flooring. The other side of the library (with separate access direct to the entrance hall) is the dining hall with period ceramic stove and views again over the park to the rear. A 'coffee kitchen' (small fully equipped secondary kitchen) has been added to the side of the dining room providing a useful addition to this floor. Completing the ground floor we have two large double bedrooms each with their own en-suite bathrooms and wc as well as a separate guest wc. The chateau in traditional format has both the formal main staircase leading to the upper floors as well as a servants staircase with access also to the garden floor.

The garden floor is home to the functional aspects of chateau life with a splendid large kitchen with an enormous wood fired stove - a twin of the one at the chateau of Chenonceau, we understand, but with a significant difference that the one here is fully functional. There is a coffee lounge and study in the lower part of the tower, various workshops, boiler room (recent oil fired boiler and system) and of course a wine cellar and numerous 'cold stores'.

Returning to the main entrance hall we ascend the stairs to the first floor, here we will discover a central corridor with paneled ceiling providing access to 6 bedrooms (including 4 en-suites and 2 sharing a small kitchenette and bathroom suggesting a self-contained 'family suite').

The upper floor (formally the servant's quarters) now provides 11 bedrooms (5 of which have fireplaces) and 2 bathrooms.

Outbuildings:

The original 'chapel' is consecrated and is a lovely building with white tuffeau stone and dates back to the original chateau that once stood on this site.

The 'guest lodge' provides 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, lounge and kitchen all on the first floor. The upper floor is large and the roof in excellent condition - there is plenty of scope to create further accommodation on this upper floor.

The 'Barnum', a purpose built marquee, with access a 'serving kitchen' (ideal for offsite chefs to serve from) and wcs. The Barnum measures approximately 100m2 and is ideal for weddings, anniversaries, etc. etc.

The barn provides shelter for the tractor and other equipment as well as an enclosed 3 stall stables.

The light and airy guardian's apartment is above the large garages and here we have another 2 double bedrooms, large lounge, separate kitchen and bathroom/wc and separate oil fired central heating system.

The stable-block provides 5 individual stables all facing the chateau across the front lawn..

The 'pigeonnier' gives an indication as to the wealth of the original chateau owner and is an interesting feature and is part of the original chicken run.

The 'Basse-courier' house - I had to ask about this one:. it's a lodge/small house with a bedroom upstairs and two small rooms down that was at the disposal of the personnel who looked after the chickens, ducks, etc. Ideal for conversion into another comfortable guest lodge if required.

The estate is roughly 9 hectares and has several feature trees dating back many hundreds of years. From the chateau the views extend over the rear lawn to the neighbouring woodland and lake in the distance (no longer part of the chateau estate).

Located around 20 minutes North of Tours (TGV to Paris in 52 mins), several golf courses and 15 min to an Autoroute junction with excellent access to the main routes and tourist trappings in the area and beyond - an ideal private home with the possibility of paying guests (and weddings, birthdays) if required.

French property in Centre WaterMill
* Country location
* 7+ acre plot
* Class 1 fishing river

At the end of a rural lane sits this beautiful water mill home. Bought in the late 90s by the current owner this property has undergone an extensive renovation (new roofs, electricity, oil central heating, drainage, etc. etc.) and is nearly finished. Due to personal circumstances this charming home is now up for sale and for a keen DIYer the remaining work (mainly on the 1st floor - bedrooms and bathrooms to be added) is ripe for the finishing with all the hard work already done.

Bordered by a class 1 river (ideal for fishing) and surrounded by pastures and farmland this 'escape' would be a superb location for rental guests and with an enormous barn ripe for conversion the future 'gite' awaits:.. or you could keep the address secret and just enjoy it yourselves.

Ground floor: Entrance hall, leading to cloak room, lounge with fitted wood burner, kitchen, double bedroom, wc, shower room, laundry room, smaller double bedroom (or study). From the entrance hall you can also descend into the former mill workings room (ideal as a wine room with bar) or up to the split mezzanine above. This part needs finishing but would be a lovely salon with the mill workings as features.

The rest of the 1st floor has been prepared with excellent insulation, veluxes on the north side and character dormer windows on the south. Here you could create at least two large double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The former outside stone staircase is still there and leads done next to the boiler room.

Across the courtyard is the large barn (26m x 6m) again with roof in excellent condition. Here you'll discover a large vaulted workshop with stairs to the 1st floor with 2 large rooms. Downstairs separate to the workshop is a storeroom and stables with another 3 smaller stores at the end.

With just under 3 hectares of private land bordered by the river you have plenty of space for animals (horses perhaps). The mill reach exists but could do with a clean out. The wheel is no longer there but of course could be added if you wanted another project. The fertile river plains provide for excellent vegetables, etc. There's also a well on site.

Location just outside of the market town of Chateau-la-Valliere with all amenities close by and Tours a comfortable 30 minute drive away. A great home in a super location and plenty of scope to expand by finishing off the project and/or converting the barn if needed.

Further afeild sees you in La Chartre-sur-Loir, Montoire, Vendome or Tours.

The longere now offers; entrance hall leading to the kitchen (needs finishing), dining room with feature beams and fireplace, lounge with stairs to the 1st floor, breakfast room, study, cloakroom/summer kitchen, boiler room, large family bathroom, downstairs master bedroom with en-suite washroom.

Upstairs has a mezzanine area providing access to a large double bedroom with summer room (possibly another bedroom) with great views, washroom, dormer bedroom and space to create another bedroom.

Outside we have over an acre of land nicely laid out with paths and mature plants, there's a double garage with loft space, underground storage space and wine cellar (with scope to extend the house above if required), well and a pool to be finished.

The current owner has completed most of the work but ill health prevents him from doing anymore. This home is ideal for a family looking to enjoy the aspects of country life in the Loire Valley with the possibility to put your own stamp on the property with most of the hard work already done. A lovely quiet location with good access to amenities in this popular area.

Note: Possibility to purchase another 4 acre paddock with stabling (POA).
