Family house in Tours city

House located in a quiet area of downtown Tours. Ideally located close to the historic center and on the banks of the Loire River. In the heart of the Loire castles region.

Our house extends over an area of 140 m2, spread over 3 floors:
- a ground floor opening onto a terrace with kitchen, living-dining room of 26 m2, and the parental bedroom.
- a floor with 3 children's bedrooms and a bathroom,
- a basement fitted out with a television lounge, a games room and a bathroom.
The house faces south. The exterior consists of a wooden and terracotta terrace covered by a 25 m2 glass roof and a small courtyard of 10 m2.
It is located in a small street with few people. The area is very quiet and typical with its old houses.

At the end of the street, a two-minute walk away, is the access to the Loire River and the bicycle paths that border it. In a few minutes, you leave the city and discover the wild banks of the river. The circuit "La Loire à vélo" (The Loire by bike) allows magnificent walks to the closest tourist cities such as the royal city of Amboise.
On the city side, we are 10 minutes walk from the historic centre of Tours (cathedral, castle) and the beginning of the pedestrian streets of the old town, very lively with its bars and restaurants. Touraine is famous for its gastronomy and wines. The train station is a 15 minute walk away and it is possible to reach by train the various tourist sites of the department : Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau, Langeais, Chinon, Loches, Chaumont sur Loire, Chenoneaux, Chambord... and discover the great historical richness of the Loire Valley. You can also go further, Blois is 60 km away, Paris is only an hour away by TGV.

If you like hiking in the countryside, hiking trails of different lengths criss-cross the department between vineyards, forests and typical villages.
The access to the motorway is two minutes by car.
We have family bicycles which we leave at your disposal.

We also leave Daboli, our big cat, alone, who will just ask for his daily ration of croquettes.
