Varennes-sur-Fouzon House Rental Photos and Description

19th c traditional house in quiet rural village in wine growing area. Free WiFI

If you want to relax, enjoy great food, wine, and step back into history then this area of France is just for you. Maison Des Reves is a 19th Century house with spacious orchard garden is located in the peaceful village of Varennes Sur Fouzon.

There is ample off road parking. Once the gates are closed it is an entirely safe and secure site for children and pets.

The ‘house of dreams’ is set in a secluded orchard garden. A variety of luscious fruit trees and flower beds create a perfect canvas as you relax and enjoy sweet unpolluted air that carries the fragrance of the garden’s many rose bushes during long summer days, The warm endless evenings can be spent sampling the local wines on the patio, and as the sun falls you can watch the bats darting across the star filled night skies as you accompany your wine with a smooth cheese produced just a few miles from the house.

Come to Maison des Reves and be a part of the dream

The beautiful house centres round a large kitchen. This was the traditional meeting room of the family and is an ideal opportunity to try out your French culinary arts and enjoy typically French social meal times. It has recently been fitted with light oak cupboards and work surfaces. Your meals can be served on an antique rosewood and mahogany circular table with six carved chairs.

As you enter through the front door from the orchard garden the long central hallway gives access to all the rooms. The large lounge with period leather chairs, sofa, recliner and double bed settee has a beautiful marble fireplace and hearth and is a very comfortable room to relax in. Or you can watch a video or DVD.

Opposite this room is the double bedroom which has an antique mahogany wardrobe and a chest of drawers. Further along the hallway down two steps brings you to the smaller bedroom on the left. This has bunk beds and a single bed. It also has an oak floor and a full picture window.

The recently modernised bathroom offers a full size bath, a walk in shower cubicle, wash- basin, toilet and washing machine.

When you take a stroll in the orchard garden you can either enjoy the smell of blossom or help yourself to the peaches, plums, apples or pears, depending on the season. The delightful garden is completely enclosed.

dream holiday

  • 5 of 5
Maison de rêves is an ideal place to stay if you're looking for a peaceful holiday, not too far from interesting touristic places in the Loire Valley (medieval towns, châteaus, nice markets, vineyards,...).
The house is very comfortable, the rooms are spacious and cosy. We loved the garden with fruittrees and roses, all very romantic. It was also an ideal playground for our litlle boy, who enjoyed looking for plums and smelling the flowers.
We had a wonderful stay also thanks to the owner Elaine, who provided excellent customer service! She was available if we wanted information about the region, winetastings, ... but she also let us enjoy our family-time in peace. And ofcourse we won't forget the marvellous vegetarian dinners she made for us.
We already recommended this place to our friends.

We found our stay at the cottage really enjoyable,the facilities were exactley what we hoped for,very clean and every one of our wishes granted. our only concern was the smell coming from the bathroom it was quite strong at times, but I believe that is going to be rectified.
Our host Elaine could not do enough for us helping us with all our enquiries, even sending us to places we had never thought to visit. The village is a really lovely place and there are very good road trips to all the surrounding country side. Again I cannot say enough about our host Elaine a more friendly person you good ever hope to meet

We had a wonderful week at Maison-des-Reves. The house was spacious, clean and perfect for relaxing in the garden over dinner. The host was great. We also found the location very good for a variety of activities around the Loire valley. We would highly recommend a stay.

One Lovely Month in June

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a truly lovely one month at this home. This was our second visit and we hope to be back again one day. The house was very comfortable with all amenities provided, WIFI access too! A fully stocked kitchen made cooking very enjoyable. The garden was so enjoyable to relax in after days spent touring. The location was very central to all of the sights we wanted to see. Our hosts, Elaine and Gary were so accomodating and enjoyable - we now consider them family friends! We have travelled and stayed in many vacation rentals and this is indeed a favorite for us!
