On the cycle route to Chambord castle 2 km away, this 16th century post house built during King François 1st’s reign has been tastefully modernized. Saint Dyé sur Loire village lies just outside the castle grounds. This unique property has a walled garden for complete privacy.FREE WIFI ACCESS.
My home is also my workshop, (I paint) and I have designed the staircase and the renovations. The ground floor is devoted to the living area with a 60 sq metre open plan lounge with open fire place. All the original features have been retained (tiled floor, oak beams etc.) The kitchen diner has a traditional Edward de Pomiane oven. There is a dining area large enough for the chef to keep his or her guests entertained while cooking. (No other guest in the house during your period of reservation)
There will have three bedrooms two bathrooms (a shower and a bath). Outbuildings are fine for storing bicycles.
The house is furnished with heirlooms and locally sourced antique furniture. All the art work in the house is original, either done by me or friends or family.
Live like a French family and taste French refinement at its best. Chambord castle lies in the Loire Valley, a Unesco world heritage site. Leonardo Da Vinci died in Amboise, a half-hour drive away and designed Chambord's double helix staircase that ov (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) visitors make a detour to visit every year.
This property is the ideal starting point for discovering Loire Valley wineries and fine dining in the vicinity. Enjoy a variety of farmers' markets in Blois, Mer, Amboise and Chambord overflowing with locally-grown produce. The Loire river is only minutes away and has inspired generations of artists - including me!
Saint Dyé sur Loire is the starting point for the ‘Loire à Vélo” a French government initiative aimed at promoting cycling along the Loire. You can cycle all the way to Nantes. Other pursuits I recommend are fishing, canoeing and kayaking on the Loire. Cheverny castle famous for Tintin is twenty minutes away by car. There is an 18-hole golf there too. If you like searching for antiques, then there are plenty of shops for you to find what you've been dreaming of.
The nearest train station is Mer, eight minutes away. Paris (Versailles and EuroDisney) is one and a half hour's away by train. Paris-Orly airport is 180 km away. The TGV high speed train network (Eurostar to London and Thalys to Brussels) runs to St Pierre des Corps station in Tours with easy connections to Blois.

Away from a scene in the quiet countryside is what we needed after a long work week. Kath's home in the quaint village of Chambord on the Loire Valley offered us just what we required. There's plenty of space and a lovely fireplace, engaging art and large outdoor area. She's extr…

Kath has a charming and unique home. It was a postal relay station for Francois I, who built Chambord, so it's 500 years old! She went out of her way to ensure that we had a pleasant stay, and was well organized - she had plenty of information on the area in a binder for guest…

Response from Kath:
Merci Elena Je suis désolée, j'avais laissé des instructions pour augmenter le chauffage, mais il semble qu'elles n'ont pas été respectées. J'espère que vous n'avez pas eu froid. J'espère vous voir une autre fois, pour me faire pardonner je vous offrirai une journée sur un séjour prochain... Best regards Kath
