A graceful 18th-century house in a charming setting close to the famous white wine vineyards of Vouvray. Lena and her young family moved from Paris and love their new home; children are welcome: highchairs, cots, toys, a garden to roam and a large pool. Choose between rooms in the house or memorable ones carved into the stone cliff outside. All have painted furniture and art; the main suite has wonderful views over the garden. Wake to breakfast in the elegant dining room or outside in the sunshine: fresh juice, pastries, local yogurt, perhaps ham, cheese and eggs. Head out for Tour market, Loire canoeing, Beauval zoo and Lulu Parc.
