Welcome to Clos de de Ligré

An elegant residence from 1852 in a quiet village 6 km south of Chinon, with large sunny gardens, swimming pool, courtyard and private parking.

This former gentleman farmer's house is now a comfortable Guest House, full of character, originality and happy surprises.


The five attractive, comfortable bedrooms, each with its own individual style, have been renovated with elegant simplicity blending traditional charm and contemporary chic: terracotta-sponged walls, creamy beams and colourful modern fabrics with original tiled floors and stone fireplaces.

 

The elegant sitting room has a billiard table and a baby grand piano for the musically-minded, as well as a card table and books for browsing.
The swimming pool (10mx4m) in the sunny back garden is ideal for a leisurely swim before breakfast or after a day's sightseeing.

 




 Traditional French family dinners with local wines are served in the family dining room next to the open fireplace in winter, and in the garden in the shade of the old lime tree in summer. The quiet, peaceful atmosphere make it a perfect refuge for world-weary travellers.

 

 

It is an ideal base from which to visit the Abbey of Fontevraud (where the Plantagenets are buried), the chateaux of Chinon, Azay le Rideau, Villandry, Saumur and Langeais, and the vineyards of Chinon and Saumur.

After many years living in Paris and travelling around the world, Martine moved to the country to combine her love of the area and her love of entertaining. Artistic and anglophile, she takes great care of her guests, ensuring that they have a relaxed and unforgettable stay in Ligré.
