Your American hosts, Gloria and Bob Belknap, specialize in personal attention and will provide guidance and tips for your visit.
The mansion is a five-minute walk from restaurants, charming shops, and the town’s bustling outdoor food market on the banks of the Loire. Also nearby is the Château du Clos Lucé, the last home of Leonardo da Vinci and the site of the 2012 European Festival of Renaissance Music, which is being held during your stay, on September 28–30, 2012.

Follow the fascinating wine routes where the sparkling whites of Vouvray and Montlouis and fruity reds of Chinon and Bourgueil await.
