    We have been living in this troglodyte house for 2 years. We bought it and renovated it to share with our guests - a home both atypical and typical of the Loire Valley. These cave dwellings were dug into the limestone hills of the valley to extract the red and white stone which was used for the construction of the magnificent Loire Castles. The finest examples are Chenonceau, Chambord and Amboise. ... We are located in the heart of the Valley of the Kings in the Amboise area.

    Located in the “Garden of France” and within the heart of the Loire castles, my home dates from 1208! It is a castle-monastery. On arrival my guests and I tour the area: Plantagenet style churches, mills, a prison and fortifications. They taste the authentic flavours of my organic vegetable garden. And I lend them bicycles and give my tips for discovering the treasures of Touraine, such as the Loire castles, Beauval Zoo or the Medieval town of Loches . I like my guests to feel at home and have them visit again.

    This house is a typical "longère" from the Sologne area, built in the 17th century, and furnished in a contemporary style. It is representative of the Sologne area because of its red bricks and the pond located in the front of the house. I help my guests plan their stay with visits to castles, parks and the nature trail around the lakes. I also book tables for them at authentic restaurants off the beaten track, and give them local products (e.g. goat cheese from the city of Selles-sur-Cher) when they leave.
