This property, where the borders of the old French provinces of Maine and Touraine meet, is in a village in the heart of an urban triangle with Le-Mans (45 km), Tours (60 km) and Vendôme (40 km), 200 km from Paris. Via the A11 Paris-Le-Mans motorway, the exit to take is La-Ferté-Bernard, via the A28 Rouen-Tours motorway, take the Château-du-Loir exit. Vendôme TGV train station (35 km) has 44-minute links to Paris-Montparnasse. The Loir Valley, a land of gastronomy, art and culture, is a small vine-growing and tourist region 60 km to the north of the Loire Valley. Near to character towns with contemporary art and crafts centres as well as numerous vestiges of the past. The mild climate, the soil and the vine stock encourage the production of wines such as Coteaux-du-Loir (with AOC appellation since 1948) and Jasnières (with AOC appellation since 1937). There are numerous other local products. Bercé Forest, spanning more than 5,000 ha, is less than 20 km away. A royal forest in the 14th century and renowned for its first-class oak plantations, it has a multitude of outdoor activities with 280 km of hiking, trekking and mountain bike circuits. Water sports are held on the Loir.
Between 5 and 15 minutes from three villages with all amenities (shops, schools, cultural and sports centres) and 20 minutes from a small town with a cinema, a hypermarket and a sixth form college.
The old presbytery
This old rectangular residence, spanning three levels over cellars, has a hip slate roof. The quarry stone block walls are covered with lime-rendering, the lower section of which needs redoing. Freestone has been used for the window framing and the quoins. The inside is extremely bright courtesy of its east-west-facing, through layout. The window frames and glazed doors are made of oak wood. The shutters are outside, indoor in the lounge. Freestone fireplaces stand against the walls, beams are exposed and the terracotta floor tiles are old.
This outbuilding has a gable roof covered in tiles, freestone walls and glazed brick decoration. One section has been converted into a 2-roomed guest house. The other section is used as a garage which has an attic that could be converted. It is adjoined by an open, covered storage area.
The old bread oven
Adjoining the garden level of the presbytery on the south side, a room with a view of the stream could be converted into an additional bedroom or a study. A mezzanine floor houses a shower room and a toilet.
Tall trees are planted on the west side, alongside the old walls, with mixed borders in the section near to the residence. Perennial plants and numerous rose bushes have been planted in this former priest’s garden. A vegetable garden is on the east side. On the other side of the stream, crossed by a wooden bridge, are grasslands planted with mature trees.
This house, with its mature trees, its flower beds, its running stream crossed by a wooden footbridge and its view of the distant grasslands, is obviously in the country. And yet, the village is just a stone’s throw away. Although there are no feelings of isolation here, the high walls are a guarantee of privacy. The majority of structural works and those to install modern-day home comforts have been carried out. Some conversion works to suit personal tastes and needs are still possible, notably in the little outbuilding adjoining the presbytery which is filled with light courtesy of its large windows.
