The Loire Valley is 2 hours drive SW of Paris, (55 minutes by train) the house is not far from Amboise, between Tours & Blois, on the Cher River. It is right between Chambord & Chenonceau Châteaux, so an ideal base for sightseeing, & easily accessible.

The house is near Montrichard, about 15 minutes drive from Chateau Chenonceaux (a must to visit.) I will send you more directions once the booking is confirmed.
Montrichard, (population 3786) is a medieval town on the river Cher, which has a river beach; is dominated by an impressive 11th century castle ruin. There is a market twice a week, banks, cinema, supermarkets & some good restaurants.
Apart from good dining there are a lot of activities in the area including canoeing & boat trips on the Cher, several golf courses, a riding stables at Chateau Gué Péan, tennis courts & bicycles to rent in Montrichard. There are also some fantastic walks along the river, through the forest of Amboise or in the vineyards.
Swimming is possible at Montrichard Centre Aquatique. There is fantastic fishing in the area, either in the lake 2 kms away from the house, or in the rivers Loire & Cher. A fishing permit is required which is available from the village.
If you like wine you’re in the right place. The house is surrounded by vineyards, & “viticulteurs” who would be delighted & proud for you to taste their produce, red, white & rosé: cabernets & sauvignons, côts, gamays & méthode champagnisé. They’d love to take you through their cellars!
