Experience staying in a cave / Troglodyte house - typical of the Loire Valley area - with a modern twist. Built into the hill of the famous Chateau de Chissay, it's the perfect spot from which to explore the picturesque countryside, chateaux, Cher River, markets and antiques. Its a foodies' and wine-lovers' paradise, with excellent restaurants and food markets nearby, and many local vineyards to enjoy tastings of superb Loire Sauvignon and Chenin wines. The property can sleep up to 8 people.

We had a great stay in this unconventional house. Bigger than expected, full of charm and decorated with the old-fashion furnitures we like. Very convenient location to visit the Chateaux de la Loire.

Gussy's cave home is absolutely charming, and a perfect base for exploring the area. We had a group of seven and were very comfortable. Loved the terrace, the foosball table, & the local wine and special goodies left for us!
