Château La Touanne - Gîte

Baccon, Loiret

Go boating, deer-spotting and swimming on this peaceful and impressive estate - set out by bike to explore the surrounding Châteaux


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


All the charm of your own rustic ‘cottage’ with the added bonus of the vast and lovely Château grounds to roam. Take a boat on the stream that runs though the woods with the deer; swim in the heated pool in formal gardens beyond the orchard; let youngsters play free or in the privacy of your high, laurel-hedged garden. The delightful Nicolas and Christine have created something of the feel of a hamlet here hosting guests in the Château too and letting other buildings on their impressive estate. Yours has a good-sized, terracotta-tiled and whitewashed sitting room, a modern, well-equipped kitchen and a handy shower and loo downstairs. Upstairs, in the attic space, is the bigger shower room and bedrooms overlooking the large courtyard. The master double has splendid exposed beams, the twin – ideal for children – is smaller. The style is comfortable, practical and unfussy, with games and books for quiet times. It is wonderfully peaceful here (though conveniently close to the A10) and a real treat to set out by bike to see the surrounding Loire Châteaux and gardens.
