About our home

Our house is a large old "Bord de Loire" type mansion house. We bought it 6 years ago and we made a lot of renovation work in it. So I think you will appreciate its comfort! It is built just outside a very typical French village, inside a 5000 m2 private and closed park and stands in front of a 270 000 square feet field in which we have our 3 horses and 1 pony. That's the view you will have every morning from your bedroom window ! The house has 3 floors: Kitchen (very large), dining room, TV & playing room on the ground floor. Living room and office/library on the 1st floor. 3 rooms (2 double and 2 single beds) + 1 bathroom + 1 shower on the second floor. 3 rooms (2 double + 3 single beds) and 1 bathroom in the 3rd floor. My children are used to the stairs but I would say it is not suitable for too young kids. It is mostly furnished with old pieces of furniture (Laurent was an Antique dealer). During summer, we usually have our meals outside in the garden or next to the swimming pool. We also have a very small pond where the kids like to go fishing. It is closed and no access if possible to the younger ones. You will be able to use our 2 cars (a 7 seater Land cruiser and a 5 seater C300 Chrysler). Our housekeeper comes 4 hours 2 times a week.


More about us

  1. We are a french family. I am Delphine. I am running my own company ( My husband Laurent was an antique dealer, specialist of vintage leather club chairs and sofas. He also is a renowned specialist of Militaria (he wrote books about world wars uniforms and arms).. We left Paris 12 years ago to live in the countryside and we love it! We have 4 girls (!!). Chloé (18), Solenne (16), Montaine (12) and Garance (7). So don't expect to find any boy toys in our home! Our girls are very well behaved. No, they will not eat on your sofa or walk on your carpet with muddy boots ! I like my house to be clean and tidy. So they do know how to behave. We really like to travel with our kids. We went to USA, India, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Dubai, Senegal, Dominican republic. We like showing our girls the world around, different cultures.

Where is it?


Our house is located in the Loire Valley area, surrounded by all those famous castles (Blois (15km), Chambord (20), Cheverny (10), Amboise (30), Chaumont (10), Chenonceau (35)...). Our village is part of the famous Cheverny vineyard production area. You have wine production house everywhere. It is on the way of the "Vineyards road" which makes a tour of all the production area of the Loire Valley wines. If you like French cooking, each little village has its gastronomic restaurant here! Our village restaurant is one of the best around! Blois is the closest town. It is 15 minutes by car from our home. It is a very very nice old town where you can go shopping. There are also cinemas, restaurants. It is very animated during summertime (we have a lot of tourists there.) We have a lot of trails going from our home to beautiful places around. You can easily go iking or riding (we have 7 bicycles, all size). We have somebody who will come once or twice a day to take care of the horses (independent entrance, you will not even notice it !) If you fancy a day in Paris, you can go there by direct train (1h30 to 2h00) from Blois.
