Enjoy a different holiday experience…
Our holiday cottage is located in the town of Vouvray in the French Touraine region. It is surrounded by world-famous Middle-Age cathedrals and Renaissance castles and renowned wineries. The cottage is of a rare and spectacular troglodyte style with a third of the house dug into the sandstone hillside overlooking the Cher and Loire river valleys. All rooms have windows opening to the garden, the walls are hand-carved in the local white tuffeau stone – giving the house a wonderfully warm and relaxing atmosphere.
