There can be few parts of France so lovely during Autumn as the Loire Valley. The ‘mellow fruitfulness’ of those golden and russet forests, the misty mornings, and romantic turrets of the many chateaux. Discover the Loire Valley for its accessibility, wonderful wines and food, and beautiful architecture. This quartet of properties might lure you to the Loire…
Located on the Loire Valley chateaux route (great for holiday rentals?) this is a large two-bedroom apartment in the pretty medieval town of Chinon and its fortress. Offers views over the square, private roof terrace and has high-speed internet.
The Château of Blois is one of the grandest buildings of the region. Nearby is this beautiful seven-bedroom watermill set in lovely gardens. Full of character yet also modernised, it would make a great family home, and scope for income generation.
Set in an idyllic location, this beautiful five-storey 15th century former water mill has been lovingly restored by its owners. With six bedrooms is offers lots of potential for further development.
Don’t just visit all those wonderful chateaux – why not buy one? This is a stunning example – originally part of Richelieu’s chateau – with 12 bedrooms, heated pool, stables and a very romantic tower.
