Village houses and cottages to rent in Southern Touraine, Loire Valley, France


Previous guest's comment:


 "The small village experience' was great and made us feel part of the landscape rather than just passing tourists."



For your Loire Valley experiences we offer a selection of properties, self-catering cottages and houses in the beautiful Southern Touraine area of the Loire Valley. Although all the properties offer their own unique accommodation their locations will allow you to have the same true French experience. 

The houses are in and around the villages of Barrou and Le Grand Pressigny. Their location halfway between Tours to the north and Poitiers to the south means you have the best of both worlds with all the major chateaux within easy reach plus the delights of the  'hidden gem' (Sunday Times) that is the department of the Vienne which includes the very popular 'Futuroscope',

What you also get when renting these properties is the experience of their owners with regards to how to get the most out of your Loire Valley experience plus direct contact with locals *

"Jim & Pauline are on hand to assist in anyway necessary to make you stay a memorable one."


Our regional information site www.experienceloire.com/ will help you plan your holiday.

The properties:


Old Walnut Mill


The 'Old Walnut Mill' is a delightful 19th century 2 bedroom cottage in the village of Barrou in Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire France. The village sits on the banks of the river Creuse surrounded by rolling countryside. It has welcomed guests from around the world who have enjoyed the ‘French village experience’. In 2016 we had the pleasure of receiving gifted painters who enjoyed the many opportunities to capture images of this very pretty part of France. The house is within walking distance of the village amenities, the restaurant, boulangerie, butcher and convenience store.

 Le Bourg

Lovely riverside barn conversion with separate 'petite maison'. The house is in the village of Barrou, in the department of Indre et Loire, France and as the name suggests 'Le Bourg' is located in the centre of the village. Its situation means you have the benefits of experiencing a small French village but you are also ideally placed to visit all the major attractions of the Loire valley plus some of the highlights of the neighbouring department of 'Vienne'

La Belle-Vue

Another cosy riverside barn conversion in the village of Barrou. Ideal for a couple wishing to sample French village life for a short stay. Its location allows for relaxation but with the option of having excursions out to nearby attractions without having to spend too long in the car getting there.
