Unique! An authentic French castle tower as a holiday home, overlooking French vineyards. A completely walled garden with an orchard where silence is deafening and a fantastic starry sky can be seen every night. During the day enjoy the garden, the swimming pool, the space, the peace, the barbecue and the formidable terrace. And in the winter the fireplace.
La Croix Rouge estate is located on the edge of Huismes, a village with a great butcher, a bakery, a typical French café and a restaurant. On Tuesday there is a market with fresh fish, cheese, vegetables and plants. All ingredients to let the car stand!
La Croix Rouge is an oasis of tranquility, in the middle of everything the Loire Valley has to offer. The Loire Valley has recently been declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Along the estate, the Loire route runs a velo route. From the gate you enter the forest of Chinon. And a variety of excursions to castles, wine tastings, children's entertainment and water sports. At 10 minutes by car you will find Chinon, an authentic town on the Vienne with a medieval castle and many cultural activities. In a short half hour you reach Saumur, the white city of the Loire. The larger cities of Tours and Angers are worth a trip from Huismes. The Loire, Vienne and Indre rivers come together in this area. For the little ones, a special zoo in a former quarry and amusement park can be reached within half an hour. You do not have to worry about food and drink in the area: all terraces, markets, restaurants and wine taverns.
The castle tower consists of two parts: the living tower and the staircase. On the ground floor of the tower is the living room. A large fireplace keeps warm in the winter and on cool nights. At 1 and 2 (tower room) high is a bedroom of approximately 36 m2, both with a fireplace. On the north side on the ground floor are the kitchen and the bathroom (with bath). The kitchen is fully equipped (gas cooker with oven, dishwasher, fridge, appliances and all necessary kitchen attributes).
We warmly welcome you to our dream in France !!
