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.

The space
The beauty of the cave is that it provides cool respite in the hot summer months and warm comfort, equipped with underfloor heating, during the winter.

The living room and bathroom are built into the exposed calcareous sandstone rock. Furnished with a mixture of carefully selected antiques and modern pieces, the space is perfect for hosting families or groups of friends.

The bathroom is in the old stable, now kitted out with walk-in shower and jacuzzi bath.

The kitchen/ living room area has underfloor heating and a wood burning stove. The kitchen has all the gadgets you could need.

The property has three bedrooms: 2 double rooms and one large attic room, which can have up to 3 beds. The attic room is reached via a spiral staircase and has a pool table and a brand new table football. It is ideal for kids or groups of friends. Because of the stairs, the property is not suitable for young children.

There is a lovely secluded veranda on which you can have a barbecue or enjoy a glass of wine from the local vineyard while watching the sunset.

Note: there is no wifi in the house. This is a blessing for some and a curse for others!
