Holiday Rental House
If you want to forget all your worries and spend your time relaxing on the terrace drinking wine from a vineyard that it takes less than a minute to walk to, fishing on the river, paddling in its cool shallow waters or frying with the help of some coconut oil on its small but perfectly formed river-beaches, then our house is for you. Our 250 year old house, with two bedrooms (with an extra single bed inconspicuously sited in the living-room), 1 shower-room (with toilet and wash-basin) and living-room, with a feature fireplace with log burner, is one of tallest in the village of Rivière, which has been awarded Unesco World Heritage Site status, just like Stonehenge and the Taj Mahal.

Our 250 year old house, with two bedrooms (with an extra single bed inconspicuously sited in the living-room), 1 shower-room (with toilet and wash-basin) and living-room, with a feature fireplace with log burner, is one of tallest in the village of Rivière, which has been awarded Unesco World Heritage Site status, just like Stonehenge and the Taj Mahal. It really is a special place. There is a large wooden terrace, part-covered and part-open to the outside area, where you can watch the chickens climbing the ladder to the first floor of the next-door house or stare through the window of the château opposite, wondering how the other half are living. You can choose to walk along the wooded river path into Chinon or wander through the vineyards that surround Rivière, or you could while away an afternoon wine-tasting in either or both of the vineyards literally on our doorstep. Rivière is a village of two halves: the ancient bourg next to the river and the new-build area where you can feed the resident donkeys or play tennis on either of the two courts. During the summer, there are French markets in Rivière some weekends, selling artisan breads, spit-roast chicken and other interesting items. If you are more adventurous, you can visit the town of Chinon, 5 km away, famous for the longest château in Europe (actually three châteaux in a line along the ridge), with a large selection of restaurants, boutiques, internet cafés and bars. The famous châteaux of the Loire Valley are but an hour’s drive away the nearest being the famous Azay-le-Rideau; and even Paris or Euro Disney are only two-and-a-half hours away, by either car or train. Please note that, for everybody else's comfort, no smoking is allowed anywhere on the property (including the terrace and stairs). More
