Chantilly is a traditional 19th century cottage, set in the village of Noyers in the Loire Valley. Noyers is officially listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. The house was recently restored to offer a high level of comfort. With two double bedrooms and a sofa bed on the mezzanine, the house is comfortable for up to six guests.
A large open-plan living-dining area includes a dining table, a fireplace, a television, and a bar with beer taps.
The kitchen is fully equipped for a self catering holiday, and includes a separate dining table.
The first bedroom is on the ground level, and has its own fireplace and a double bed. Also on the ground level is a shower room and WC.
The second bedroom is upstairs on the mezzanine, where there is also a convertible sofa bed in a separate space.
Chantilly has its own private terrace, with a barbecue and a table and chairs to dine outside under a pergola.
The large cultivated garden is shared with the owners, who also live on the property in an ecological house, and are available to help their guests if needed. Parking and wifi are freely available. Bicycles are available to explore the local countryside.
Chantilly is in the village of Noyers. Within a few kilometres are gourmet restaurants, a choice of bars and cafés, and shops and supermarkets. Also nearby are three museums and five exceptional châteaux.
You can also explore the local countryside. Take a boat trip on the Loire river, twenty minutes' drive from the house, or see the canals in the village of Montargis, known as "Little Venice", which is equally close.
The local countryside is dotted with many lakes. Within a few kilometres is one with a beach, which is good for swimming.
This is also excellent countryside for walking and hiking. The forest of Orleans is the largest in France, and offers a good day out with many hiking trails to follow.
The city of Orleans is rich in history, famed for its connection to Joan of Arc, the French national heroine who, inspired by visions, led a military campaign against the English in the 15th century. Its cathedral is well worth a visit.
The local villages and towns offer regular open-air markets, selling local produce. There are many festivals, especially during the summer months. Sully-sur-Loire hosts a famous music festival every year in late May and early June.
“I would strongly recommend this house to those I love. Eric and the house are fantastic. I have left their home, but I miss them already. Thanks again to my French friend, Eric and his wife. If I have a chance next time, I want to stay again.”

“Very nice little house in the heart of France, located in a quiet area. Chic and authentically decorated. Very well equipped with everything needed. In the kitchen is an induction and gas hob, electric oven, microwave oven, coffee machine, toaster, plates, glasses, mugs, cups, etc. Coffee, tea and sugar are provided as well. The bed mattresses and pillows were comfortable. A parking place near house, not on the street, is available. A very nice terrace (exactly like in the pictures) is in the front of the house. The house is clean and the hosts are very nice people.”
