This gem of a property is full of original features to make a successful boutique style bed and breakfast. At the moment there are 4 rooms to rent, but there is a large attic with a bathroom that could make another rental suite. Very beautiful and private back walled garden with two storey stone building, which would be perfect for a gite.There is also a lovely wooden above ground pool, with terracing.

The village of Tauxigny is between Loches and Tours, a fantastic area for tourism as only just over half an hour from the Loire valley chateaux Azay le Rideau and Langeais. There are cheap airline flights from Tours directly to the UK, also from Poitiers airport which is just over an hour on the A10.

This property is very pretty. It is found through large wooden doors down a little side road, and into a walled and graveled courtyard. The outside of the building is the local tuffeau stone, covered extensively with Virginia Creeper. The courtyard has stone walls around, and the house is L-shaped, there are two of the rental rooms on the end of the property, one directly off the courtyard and the second through the entrance way which leads to the back garden.

In this space there is also a paved terrace area for sunbathing, a fabulous pond which is fed from a fresh water spring, a little fountain and a stone garden store. There is a also a large garage and wood store at the end of the property, and going through the stone entrance way at the end of the property there is a beautiful traditional cellar, this has been used at times to host wine tasting evenings.

The advantage of this property is that there is an entrance through this end of the property leading directly out to the village, this gives the rental rooms an private and independent entrance to the accommodation.

The main house is entered through a traditional wooden door into a long hallway, throughout this house there are a multitude of original features, original doors and fittings, exposed beams, beautiful woodwork, tomettes or original wood flooring. The owners have decorated the house very tastefully, making it into a really chic and elegant home.

Going to the right down the hall leads to a lovely bright fitted kitchen. There are windows on two side, there is also a very useful larder area.

Then down the hall is a useful downstairs wc, and then a large family room with a beautiful feature marble fireplace and exposed stonework.

From here we enter a large dining room with lots of original features, including another pretty marble fireplace. The original wooden stairs leads from this room to the upstairs. Through from this room there is an office/sitting room, again full of original features, and there is a wooden stable door leading out to the courtyard.

Upstairs there is another long hall, the first room is a beautiful double bedroom, also used for the B&B, with a lovely marble fireplace and an ensuite shower room.

Across the hall there is a walk in closet with an ensuite shower room, this could make another small bedroom.

Going on down the hall there is a fabulous bathroom fitted out in slate and teak.

Passing a gorgeous juliett balcony the hall leads to bedroom two, also with a lovely marble fireplace, then bedroom three which is currently used as an office, and at the end bedroom four, this room also has a lovely marble fireplace and a huge built in cupboard. This could easily be a toilet/shower as there is water plumbed in, and the room has another door that could make it an independent apartment.

Back down the hall there are wooden steps leading to the attic space, this has been floored and the walls are panelled and has been used as a teenagers den. This could also make a fabulous suite as there is already a bathroom. There is also a storeroom. The attic has tomette floor tiles throughout and exposed wooden beams.

The second rental room can be found off the courtyard, this is beautifully decorated and has exposed wooden beams and an ensuite shower room.

The third rental room is in the stone hallway between the courtyard and the back garden area. This is a lovely intimate room with wooden floors and has an open corner italien shower, wc and sink area.

Up the stone steps there is a very large covered mezzanine space, this could be used as a sitting area for the B&B suite that is through a door straight ahead. This is the Fourth B&B bedroom, it is very large and has velux windows, wooden floors, wooden exposed beams. There is also an ensuite shower room with a huge italien shower. This room also has a seating area and separate wc.

From the mezzanine area we go directly out to the private back garden. There is a fantastic wooden above ground pool which has been terraced to make a great area for swimming, sunbathing and in the evenings dining on the terrace or having a barbeque.

The garden is laid out in lawn with some trees and shrubs, and there is also a well.

At the end of the garden is a two storey stone building that would make another great rental house.
