Family house in the Loire Valley châteaux (2 hours of Paris) and close to Beauval Zoo (the 4th most beautiful zoo in the world)

Our house with 5 bedrooms would be an excellent base for a family looking to explore famous royal Chateaux of the Loire Valley (Chambord Castle), Paris and french countryside.

And, I'm sure you will enjoy french art de vivre !

Our comfortable house is located in a residential and peaceful area, where you will find shops and services.
The ground floor of our house is composed of a large living-dining room with a fireplace, a kitchen fully equipped for cooking and entertaining, a parental bedroom (large bed 160x200 and shower room). Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms (2 double beds 140x200 and 2 single beds), a bathroom. In the basement, there is the garage, the laundry room and a workshop. We have 5 bicycles (adults and children). Children will certainly be delighted to occupy themselves upstairs with our board games, Playmobils, books, comic books, guitare and the piano ... On the digital side, wifi and Netflix access will be at your disposal.

The garden with trampoline, goal post, is fully enclosed so perfect for families. You will probably enjoy garden furniture (table, 8 chairs and a deckchair), the barbecue, the plancha and the treehouse. During the morning, you will enjoy to observe the squirrel and hear birds singing in our garden 😉.

Very close to Blois town centre : https://www.blois.fr/en/attractive/10-excellent-reasons-to-come-to-blois
With excellent rail conection to Tours (30 mins), Orléans (30 mins) and Paris (2 hours). Easy access to motorways also.

We've already exchanged to Belgium and Ireland. It was great ! We’ll happily consider all offers.
