About Ann Palmer

I am a private owner living in England but who loves France and the way of life. John and I visit the cottages several times a year to ensure all is going well and to have a lovely time there ourselves and with our family. I spend a lot of time painting while I am there and John looks after the maintenance. We are both retired doctors though when we bought the cottages we were very busy now we have more time to enjoy our lovely home. Our lovely next door neighbour Catherine looks after our guests when we are away in England.

Ann Palmer purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Ann Palmer chose Bourre

We bought this lovely place as we thought it ideal for our visitors. We already had the three cottages in Vrigny and had been rinning a lovely house in St Aignan; however we felt this house did not have the sitting out space which our visitors needed and so we set about searching for soemtihng with w view and with some garden space. Our propeorties in Bourre fit this completely; we have amazing views of the valley, excellent access to the river and village and privacy for our visitors. On top of that we have a neighbour who has taken us to heart and really looks after your visitors. She is amazing. Do come!

What makes this cottage unique

We are centrally situated for visiting the historic Loire Valley chateaux; near to Chenonceau the second most visited chateau in France. Away from it all location in quiet village with stunning views across the river and valley. Bourre is the village where they quarried the unique white stone to build the chateaux - floating the stones down the river on barges, Today the cabves are used to grow mushrooms and make champagne; you can also see the old Troglydite houses in the village. The two cottages are quite different. Especially they are separate and you can spend oyur time here without seeing each other! or you can enjoy the company of another holiday maker and good friends hasve been made this way. Maison Requin is higher with a balcony and tremendous views. Maiso la Grange has a seclided terrace under the cherry tree (shade on hot days). There is a large garden shared by the two cottages. We are in the village but up the huill (a short steep walk down for your croissants) and just beyond themain road is the river Cher with its tow path where you can walk right along to Mnotricbard or St Aignan. Up the road are the woods. Along the road towards Chenonceaux (10 min drive) and Tours (half an hour) is Montrichard with everything you could need(excellent supermarkets, shops, market, restaurants. There are now two village restaurants - a steak grill and a posh chateau restaurant. We are central for the Loire Valley castles and for the vineyards. What more?

Guestbook comments from the manager

Exactly As Described Only Better

  • 5 of 5
Maison Requin was clean, warm, well equipped and quiet with lovely views over the river Cher. In dry weather you can walk along the river into Montrichard where there are restaurants and shops but there is a lovely little boulangerie in the village. The owner was quick to answer emails, confirm payment and provide lots of useful information and the French caretaker lives close to the property. The parking and garden are shared by another property so this would be ideal for two families. The approach road is narrow but it is not very long, is only used by the few houses along it and there are passing places if necessary - it was not a problem for us.

The location of the gite is ideal for visiting the various chateaux, particularly Chenonceau, Cheverny, Chambord, Blois and Valencay. We had a great stay in this gite and even asked to stay an extra day - what better recommendation?

Owner's Response: Many thanks we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I do try to keep in touch and ensure all needs are met. This lovely cottage is in the village with all the amenities yet in a quiet location with great views across the valley. We are central for visiting the chateaux. Catherine who lives across the road prepares the cottage and does a great job looking after our guests, many thanks to her too. Ann

lovely location

  • 4 of 5
Maison Requin is a lovely property tucked away off the main road. The local bakery is fantastic and the bikes were a great way to quickly get into Montrichard along the river for the market and restaurants. We had a great few days - thank you

Notes:
This is a lovely old cottage which we restored when we bought it from M. and Mme Requin (hence the name). They had loved here for many years, in fact M. Requin's parents had owned the cottage. M. Requin used to grow his vegetables in the lovely sunny garde, primarily haricot beans. Downstairs there is one big room which has a kitchen on the right as you enter and a large fireplace with sitting area on the left. Today this lovely garden is nuturing a newly planted fig tree (we have had our first crop and they are so so sweet) and a large morello cherry tree in next ot hte patio of Maison la Grange. there is also a bug hazel-nut bush!. We have a walnut tree on a small piece of land higher up above the little raod which serves only us and our neighbours. We share a tiny approach road withb only three or four nearby people, there is no passing traffic so ideal for people whi want to get away from it all; it is though ionly a short walk down into the village nad river bank
