We are an American family, living in the San Francisco Bay Area. We fell in love with Sancerre when we came to attend the french school, Coeur de France, and couldn't resist the sweet home on the wall of the old city with the amazing views of the Loire. We visit whenever we can, and have found the village, the vineyards, the Loire, and the people to be even more wonderful than we could have imagined.

Well appointed cooks kitchen.
Right down the street (2 minute walk) from main market square with shops, bakeries, restaurants, bars and wineries.
Cozy home with enough space for privacy and a feeling of spaciousness.
My wife and I stayed in Maison Verte in August 2016. The house is situated on a ridge in the medieval hilltop town of Sancerre. Although we had seen pictures of the house, when we arrived and opened the back doors leading to the terrace, we were stunned by the beautiful view of the valley below. It truly is extraordinary. The house itself is very clean, comfortable and well appointed. We had everything we needed, and the property guide was very useful. The town of Sancerre itself is also quite pleasant, with excellent restaurants and a few interesting boutiques and wine shops. (Do try Alphonse Mellot and Domaine Vacheron). We enjoyed several hikes through the vineyards and of course, the very excellent Sancerre wines in the nearby villages. (For lunch or dinner, we recommend a couple of our favorites Le Laurier in Saint Satur & Au Petit Gouter in Chavignol. The Boulay cheese shop is also not to be missed). My wife is from the area and so we come at least once a year to Sancerre: it is a completely different experience to stay in such a beautiful house vs. a B&B. One of the highlights of our stay was a candlelight dinner on the back deck as we watched the stars come out. We highly recommend a stay at Maison Verte--you won't be disappointed. We hope to return.
I really loved it here. I spend a week doing taking an French course at coeur de France and it was the perfect location. I only had to walk 3 minutes to get there

Thank you Mark for your hospitality and letting me stay at your beautiful house
