What specific architectural features does your building have ?
The Clos Chavigny is included in the French Supplementary Historic Monument List and has been perfectly preserved to this day by its various owners. It has kept its original architectural features both inside and out, which include the impressively large chimneys. The property was built around French-style gardens, which are also listed in the FSHML, and still has a lovely 17th century feel.
Places you would personally recommend
In addition to the AOC vineyards that can be explored with or without a guide from the olfactory initiation workshop, you can also discover the region by hot air balloon, or more simply by bike or on horseback. As for restaurants, we would recommend 'le Château de Marçay' and 'Le restaurant de l'Abbaye' next to the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud. In Chavigny, or in Pouancy to be more precise, we like the Michelin-starred 'Le Trésor Belge', 'Le Gambetta', which the Guide Rouge recommends, and 'Les Menestrels' in Saumur. Just five kilometres from the Clos, in Touraine, you will find 'La Devinière' which is a 15th century farmhouse and the 'Guerres Picrocholines' theatre which features in 'Gargantua' by the writer Rabelais - it is now a literary museum.
