Property Description

Alongside the owner’s home and two other cottages, Maison Rouge is a comfortable stone-built property on two floors. There is a private, walled garden area at the rear with furniture and barbecue, and off-road parking at the front. A two minute walk to Pontlevoy centre offers shops and restaurants and a local market each week. There is also a unique street museum which recounts the villlage’s history. The 11th century abbey and castle is a popular tourist attraction and just down the road in Montrichard is a genuine sandy beach with boating on the banks of the River Cher. The nearby château of Cheverny is not only a beautiful building but also has an excellent golf course and restaurant.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. As there was no visitor’s book we could not leave any comments - or seek/give advice from/to other visitors. Very few instructions on equipment (how to use tv/dvd would have been useful)or where to dispose of rubbish etc. Owner (who speaks very little English) provides bed linen then leaves it to you to make the bed(s)! Despite the foregoing this is a good location for many chateaux such as Amboise, Blois, Valencay and the not so well known but well woth a visit Montpoupon. Pontlevoy itself is a small town with few shops. It does however have an old church and an abbey, part of which can be visited (4 Euros). Carrefour Market is a few miles away in Montrichard and in our opinion the best in the area for a French baguette. Amboise market on Sunday morning is also worth a visit. June 2012.
  2. Very handy location for the rivers of the Loire and Cher, central to the many Chateau of the area. Very spacious and quite, with friendly owners. Decent self catering equipment. The living room and kitchen are good, however the bathrooms would perhaps benefit from some upgrading and modernisation. A very pleasant week overall! Oct 2011.
  3. A very nice property with a helpful pleasant owner.We managed to communicate quite well even though she does not speak much English and my French is only slight. Plenty of leaflets of what is on offer in the area. Although property looks like it is on a main road it isn’t, you go into a courtyard so it is easy for parking. Sept 2011.
  4. Surprisingly spacious, much bigger than it looked in the brochure. Kitchen fine, could have done with an extra sofa or comfy chairs. Lovely village, shop 50m away. Friendly, welcoming owner whose son spoke decent English, although it certainly helps if you speak a bit of French. Ideally situated to see the major castles. Aug 2011.
  5. The accommodation was extremely large, particularly as there were only two of us, but at least we had plenty of room and kitchen equipment. The owner was also very pleasant and helpful. Sept 2010.
  6. Private garden to rear. Large living space. One large bedroom. July 2010.
  7. Very roomy. May 2010.
  8. You could not ask for more, from the accommodation or location. Everything you could need for a great stay in France, be it a quite relaxing stay, or fun for all the family. A great base to visit the high lights of the Loire. May 2010.
  9. Quiet, enclosed garden. Location in nice village. April 2010.
  10. There was plenty of space. There was all the equipment we could need. Friendly owners. Very satisfactory. Sept 2009.
  11. The owners of the property were very helpful, suggesting local features to see. Aug 2009.
  12. The house is in a lovely courtyard setting, with a private enclosed garden which is very well equipped. The village of Pontlevoy is quiet and surrounded by countryside, very nice for walks. June 2008.
