Loire Valley : only 1hour from Paris, the land of great Chateaux, the 'garden ' of France, and the country of sweet French way of life ...
This property is different it's your chance to experience France at its best! This is a spectacular house set in grounds so beautiful they have been used over the years as a film set (the 2 houses and gardens). This is 'real' France with a chance to live in peaceful tranquil surroundings created with loving care by generations of the owner's family (8). In a 17th century property, the cottage 'Le Pot Vert,' which used to be the vineyard's house, is located in a residential peaceful wooden area in a 10,000 sqm ground with a wood, large yarns, old century trees, pool, kitchen garden, with its separate entrance and parking, from Le Cormier, the main house where live the owners Remi and Frederique.
Pool and Gardens are Shared with the Owners .
SUCH A CONTRAST to the usual places that are just furnished for letting ...
The beautiful gardens and the pool (heated if necessary) close to the cottage is enclosed with a fence . The cottage is rented with self-catering breakfasts: homemade jams, coffee, tea, milk, juices and fresh bread and croissants for the 1st day with a first meal in the fridge, a well stocked pantry, and many, many special other attentions & unique extras (as drinks, wines, flowers, candles, books and guides in English, homemade drawing stationery, stamps, CD, DVD)

NEW in JUNE 2012 : Opening of the TRAMWAY LINE easy going to ORLEANS City in 15 minutes .
We stayed in Le Pot Vert one memorable month, sharing it with three sets of friends at different times. (plenty of room for two couples). Athena, who wrote the recent review here, was one of our housemates. The cottage is lovely, very comfortable and clean -- and blissfully quiet (so nice to hear only birdsong in the morning!). We loved taking the cheap and easy tram into Orleans (a beautiful city) as well as our many day-trips to chateaux and to the wine-making town of Sancerre. Only an hour by train from Paris, we also were able to easily sneak into the capital, but to be honest, it was the cottage that maintained its greatest pull on us all. Returning to it each day was a balm for the soul and we ended up eating most of our evening meals at home after shopping in town (with desserts and fresh bread from one of the best boulangeries in France). Our two dogs had a ball romping in the grounds and one of our favorite things to do was to wander back into the property's woods, aperos in hand, during l'heure bleue each evening. Frederique and Remy were gracious hosts, helping us as needed but always giving us complete privacy. We have rented many properties in France and elsewhere and this was by far the most charming. The best compliment I can give is to say I wish we could have stayed longer and that we want to come back.
The cottage and grounds were a dream come true. Frederique is a warm and vivacious host and Remy's low keyed charm makes you feel right at home. The animals are a particular delight especially Bess one of the sweetest dogs in the world. The cottage is well stocked with everything you will need and they have paid attention to every detail down to the fresh eggs from their chickens roaming the grounds. We enjoyed going to different towns every day especially Orleans for lunch and sightseeing and returning to the lovely cottage to have a fire and cook a nice dinner in the warm, inviting kitchen. It was a perfect French country setting and close to many wonderful attractions -- my favorite Chateau Chambord which was recommended by Frederique and Paris is close by either train or car. Looking forward to going back soon for another beautiful vacation!
We ended a busy, fun-filled trip to France with a one-week stay at Frederique & Remy's beautiful cottage. At this point in the trip we were looking forward to some R&R and this property certainly did not disappoint! The kids loved the tree house, pool area and HUGE yard - not to mention the friendly pets (and chickens!!). This cottage was equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable - and was perfectly clean. The cottage had so much character too - a truly authentic experience! We did a lot of our own cooking, but when we wanted restaurant recommendations nearby, Frederique was very helpful in recommending (and booking) a fabulous dinner for our last evening. We did a few day trips from this location and found you could reach all the big chateaus (and even Versailles) within 1-1.5 hours and it was easy to get around (with a car). We had high expectations of our stay here and it even surpassed them! We would love to go back and would certainly stay here again!!
Spacious and convenient accommodation with elegant decoration and style. A delightful garden outlook. Well supplied with everything you need and more. Kitchen especially well-stocked - crockery, utensils and food! Spotless and well-maintained. Comfortable bed and high quality linen. We loved our stay and didn't want to leave after a month. Looking forward to meeting the owner again (and friendly cat, dog and hens!) the next time we stay. Karin and Philip.
Wonderful property with lovely hosts. Large rooms that had been prepared beautifully of our arrival. Well located near shops and other amenities, whilst in a rural setting with huge grounds. Plenty of lovely walks along the Loire nearby, and easy access to Orleans. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend.
As pretty and charming as the photo. Frederique went beyond just being helpful . The kitchen was fully stock, wine ,eggs ,cheese ,baguette , fresh produce etc. We love to cook and having her stocked kitchen, sure helped to inhance our meals.
Beautiful grounds ,from Remi's Topiary garden ,to Simons well keep hedges and pool.Lots of room , there was just the two of us ,a fireplace ready to be lit, lots of books and reference material of the area and a garage to park the car in ,all made for a fantastic stay. Thank you for a wonderful stay and letting us experience a little part of your amazing country. Chris and Elaine
The name of Orleans is inseparably linked with that of Joan of Arc and there is evidence of her everywhere: in satues, her life history depicted in the cathedral's stained glass windows, the house where she stayed in 1429. The city, on the beautiful and wild River Loire, is also the centre of its own wine producing area and the town has more than enough to keep a visitor happy, in particular the old part, which has many fine buildings. Some of the greatest chateaux of the Loire are within reasonable driving distance and the cottage is ideally placed for a day in Paris or Versailles. Fontainebleau on the outskirts of Paris is only 85 kms. Chartres magnificent cathedral is 70 kms.
Other Activities: Many historic places to visit : the great Loire chateaux, etc
Golf: 8 golf courses in the area.
