On the borders of the French provinces of Maine and Touraine. In the middle of an urban triangle, Le-Mans (40 km), Tours (60 km) and Vendôme (50 km). Tours-Val-de-Loire airport is 50 km away. Motorways from these towns include interchanges for the A10 Paris/ Bordeaux, the A11 Paris/ Le-Mans via the A28 Rouen/Tours to the Parigné-l’Evêque exit twenty or so kilometres away. Le-Mans and Vendôme have TGV train stations with links to Paris, respectively taking 55 and 45 minutes.
The Loir Valley is a small vine-growing and tourist region located 60 km to the north of the Loire Valley. The mild climate, the soil and the vine varieties encourage the production of wines such as Coteaux-du-Loir (with an AOC appellation since 1948) and Jasnières (with AOC appellation since 1937). Bercé Forest is within walking distance of the house. This national forest spans more than 5,000 hectares. A royal forest in the 14th century, it is renowned for its top quality oak plantations. Activities include hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and mushroom picking; mating cries of stags guaranteed!
The surrounding villages are less than 5 km away. They provide basic necessities, a health centre, schools and restaurants with a good reputation. Several little towns, ten or so kilometres away, have markets, supermarkets, secondary schools, cultural and sports centres as well as second-hand shops.
The main residence
This north-south facing, rectangular house spans two levels, topped with a slate roof. Its exposed quarry stone block and lime rendered walls have openings framed with freestone. Other features include double-glazed windows, with “Cast” frames and outdoor shutters, old terracotta and floor tiles. Whilst its original architectural features include fireplaces, renovated bread ovens in good working order, exposed ceiling beams and internal doors.
The outbuilding used for accommodating guests
This rectangular building spans two levels, topped with a slate roof. Its exposed quarry stone block and lime rendered walls feature openings framed with brick as well as freestone quoins. Once a cowshed, the ground floor is still in its original condition. The upstairs can be reached via a narrow, indoor flight of steps. This partially renovated level is still in need of finishing works.
These outbuildings are set out around the main residence. Nearby and set at right-angles to the main residence, the outbuilding used for accommodating guests helps to close off the rear of the property, keeping it private. It is extended by a shelter for a vehicle. Following on from the house, the old renovated sculleries are currently used as a machine room for the swimming pool and a workshop. A lean-to acts as a woodshed.
Facing these constructions is a little scullery, where geese were once kept.
On the right-hand side of the house, after the woodshed and the private passageway leading to the garden, a small building makes it possible to park a vehicle.
In the meadow, on the closed garden side, a wood-clad building is used not only for storing equipment for the swimming pool and the garden, but also as a support for the solar panels that heat the water in the swimming pool. In front of the property, on the open garden side, an outbuilding composed of wood and sheet metal spans a large floor surface area. Set back from the latter is another wooden farm shed.
The exteriors are divided between the public section, in front of the residence, and the private areas behind it. Gardens with grass and ferns as well as a few fruit trees in front, with climbing plants such as roses and wisteria on the buildings. Between the latter, chestnut wood barriers made in the old-fashioned way close the property, together with old trimmed hedges. Behind, alongside the residence, a long, wood-lined alleyway provides access to three areas, delimited by hedges or wooden rails and wooden slatted fencing. First of all, on the side and at the end of the land, is a meadow with superb old trees where residents could sleep under the stars on hot summer nights. A spot has been especially created for campfires. Then comes the swimming pool area. And lastly, a little garden where permaculture methods are used.
The swimming pool
This area is enclosed by wooden slatted fencing and old hedges in order to maintain a countrified air. This 4x12 m, sunken, masonry pool is heated. It was constructed in 2010. The pump was changed in 2016.
Dominating a peaceful, verdant valley, this is a sort of ecosystem that nature lovers have been creating for some twenty years. Meticulous renovation works have added home comforts to a rural property, reflecting plain but coherent architecture. Members of a family will find both conviviality and autonomy, each able to holiday according to their own personal whims. The nearby forest acts somewhat like a magnet. All the adjoining buildings have not been fully renovated such that they still possess great conversion potential. A small bed & breakfast activity would, therefore, be more than compatible with a private residence. A permaculture model has already been developed. With water and grasslands, the rearing of animals could also be another activity. The plant composition of the garden is but waiting to be enhanced. The idea of reconnecting with nature could prove to be highly profitable here.
