Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Richelieu, Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire

This large property, in the centre of the original small walled town, retaining many original features, is entered through the 12ft oak doors facing onto the historical Place du Marche. It is divided into two houses connected by a central corridor. The Front House is not rented out and is kept locked.

Interaction with guests
I have local friends who live in Richelieu and manage my property. They welcome you with keys, at the agreed check in time, and are available to answer any questions. If a convenient check in time cannot be agreed due to time of arrival you will be given a key code to a box on the front door so that you can access the house. They also take care of my maintenance so if any 'breakdowns' they can be contacted to deal with any problem. There are two house books. One gives details of appliances/ rubbish collections etc. The other has full information of local interests. Our house is also adjacent to the Tourist Office.

Large house - we were 2 couples & felt it gave everybody enough space & privacy; the same probably applies to a large family. Private courtyard good for evenings as the sun goes down. Plenty of places to visit within 1 hours driving distance. Richelieu...More

Swimming pools not allowed by Batiments de France in Town of Richelieu! My family also just love the paddling pool-I put my blow up recliner in it and spend hours with my book! So glad you all enjoyed your holiday.

Richelieu is a peaceful town, but with just about everything you need for a fantastic family holiday. Courtyard doors open onto the market square, with all of the towns attractions virtually on your doorstep, but the house itself is secluded and the garden area private....More

Thank you! It's the reason we bought the house here rather than our original first choice of seaside Vendee area.

About the neighbourhood
Richelieu is an ideal location for a quiet, relaxing holiday in a typical French market town. It is called the garden of France and the twice weekly market in les Halles reflects this with local farmers selling their produce. There are also fetes, concerts, wine fairs and broquante days held in the Place du Marche and in surrounding villages. Details can always be obtained from the Tourist office or Richelieu website.
The town itself is steeped in history and the newly opened Espace Richelieu in the Grand Rue and interactive visit at Chinon Castle are worth visiting soon after arrival to learn about the history of the area.
The Parc Richelieu is a huge, peaceful area to cycle and walk at any time of year. It is rarely busy and also great for children and dogs to play and run about in safet...
