The medieval Château de Ranton is a fortified castle built in 1340 at the beginning of the Hundred Years War between England and France. The Château has two superbly furnished self-catering apartments and three additional comfortable double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms for rental in a charming setting. All enjoy private gardens with outdoor furniture and barbeque, and use of the heated saltwater swimming pool. The château is environmentally friendly both for hot water and heating. It is an excellent base for visits to other historic sites, gardens and other places of interest in the Loire Valley, France. The region is famous for its Renaissance castles, wine, gourmet food and quality restaurants.

About the neighbourhood
Ranton is located in the magnificent Loire Valley, between the medieval city of Chinon and refined town of Saumur. At the heart of French History, the region gorges with châteaux and churches to visit, and has kept the authenticity of real France.

The Château de Ranton is 30 kilometers south of the Loire River, which is a 30 minute drive from Chinon and 45 minutes from Saumur. It is a small village of 200 inhabitants, very typical of those in the area, consisting of a cluster of farms around the church and château.

The Château is the ideal starting point to visit the most famous and the lesser known castles and monastries.
