Ideally placed to make the most of all that the Loire Valley region has to offer, Chabris is a bustling village on the banks of the lovely river Cher. Our rental cottage or Gîte is a wing of the grand town-house constructed 150 years ago for a wealthy local family and incorporating a much older former nunnery building. B&B accommadation is in three generous bedrooms on the first floor, each with modern en-suite facilities. The house itself is found in a quiet street just a few minutes walk from the village centre with its ancient church, local shops, restaurants and lively Saturday market.
A friendly community with plenty of activities for those who want them, Chabris is also a peaceful haven to rest and recuperate from the demands of modern living. Come and join us in the heart of rural France: you'll never regret discovering this delightful spot. While there is little need to venture out of the region some visiters use the gite as a base for wider travel. With Paris just 2 hours away by car or train, Chabris' central location makes it ideal for sightseeing throughout France.
The cottage and main house have undergone a program of extensive renovation and improvement in 2004-2005. Facilities, decoration and equipment have all been modernised and installed to a high standard while many attractive local touches have been retained. The cottage offers accommodation on two floors. The ground floor has direct access to the driveway and front garden and is of open-plan format, providing flexible facilities for a couple or larger family. It serves as a kitchen-diner, with newly purchased equipment for those who like to cater for themselves: electric kettle, coffee-maker, microwave, cooker, fridge-freezer, etc. The lounge is ideal for both quiet evenings or lively parties and has a sofa, arm chairs and other furnishings. A TV offers French channels but has a DVD player attached.
A side door leads to a colourful enclosed garden and a high quality patio set is provided for al fresco eating. A locally made hardwood stairway leads to the upper floor which consists of two generous double-bedrooms and a modern bathroom. There is plenty of storage and beds to sleep 4. The bathroom is completely new and includes a shower, wash basin and W.C.
