The
Experience

Holiday in a vineyard? What could be better! The gîtes here are in the grounds of a traditionally designed, ‘modern’ château near Tours. You are sitting in 12 acres of red, white and rosé, mixed with formal gardens and woodland with foraging deer. La Closeraie, no longer the wash house, has been transformed into a smart ground-floor apartment, with a comfortable salon and an open fireplace for chillier days. Cooks will be happy chatting to diners in the compact kitchen; eat in, or repair to the garden for a candle-and-star-lit supper. At the end of the gravelled drive is handsome gatehouse, also sleeping four, with a pale beech and steel staircase. In 2013 an excellent third cottage was added. The winery is owned by a friend of the Carlis, who makes sweet white chenins and fizzy Rosière, among others; buy some to take home. The Cher river, a tributary of the Loire, winds lazily through the old old town, heavenly Chenonceau is four miles away, and Amboise, Azay, Blois not much further. As for Bléré, it’s the home of one of France’s best cheesemakers – take yourselves off on a tour.
