La Cure is a 17th century manor house and cottage, set in a hectare (two acres) of gardens.
The large house, Les Roses, has four full bedrooms to sleep up to 11 guests.
The cottage, La Lavande, is a two bedroom home, ideal for a couple or a family of up to four.
Larger groups of up to 15 can rent both the manor house and the cottage together.
The house and cottage are set in the middle of gardens filled with fruit trees and roses. The fully fenced 10 by four metre pool is surrounded by a hedge and set away from the buildings.
The property has views of the village church and the forest and fields surrounding the village. It is set in the middle of the small traditional village of Ferrirère-Larçon. Shops, services, and all the great châteaux of the Loire region are within easy reach.
There is a vibrant little bar/restaurant in the village serving great food. The nearest supermarket is six kilometres from the house, but you might prefer to shop in the medieval town of Loches, fifteen minutes' drive. It hosts an excellent food market twice a week, with stalls selling meats, cheeses, preserves, produce, bread, and more. It also has a château and a fortress.
Equally close is Le Grand Pressigny, which has a lovely chateau and an excellent small museum, as well as a weekly food market.
In the house, you'll find a map marked with bicycle rides around the village and through the forest, which you can do on the good quality bikes that are available to guests.
Some of the famous châteaux of the Loire Valley, such as Villandry and Chenonceau, are within 40 minutes' drive. Also within easy reach are the vineyards of Chinon, which you can visit to taste the product, and the interesting town that gives the wine region its name.
The city of Tours (described by the Lonely Planet guide as a mini Paris) is also an easy drive. Closer to home, there are many charming little villages which are easy to visit on a bike for a coffee or lunch. An excellent fine dining restaurant called La Promenade can be found in the village of le Petit Pressigny, just fifteen minutes away.
