St Aignan-sur-Cher riverside chateau town 

6 Rue de l'Ancien Collège in Loir-et-Cher, a cottage in Loire

Traditional townhouse in charming medieval town

A former artisan's dwelling in the heart of châteaux country, this characterful property is situated in the centre of the delightful medieval market town of St Aignan-sur-Cher, 30 minutes south of Blois. One of two adjoining houses, it has original wooden beams, stone walls and tiled floors and a secluded, leafy courtyard bounded by the old town wall. Shops, cafes and restaurants are just minutes' walk away.

St Aignan boasts an idyllic rural setting and has a rich cultural history. Its handsome châteaux commands extensive views of the town and surrounding countryside and the crypt of the Romanesque Collegiate Church contains ancient frescos dating from the 12th century. St Aignan is the perfect base for visiting the many famous châteaux in the area, including Chenonceau, Valençay and Chaumont with its International Garden Festival, and for sampling award-winning wines and cheeses at local vineyards and markets.

St Aignan also offers great facilities for families and those who enjoy an active lifestyle - a newly-built playground for smaller children, indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools with views to the château and a water sports centre offering canoe/kayak/bicycle hire. A short drive away is the world-renowned Beauval Zoo. With an emphasis on conservation and designed to maximise its beautiful setting, the zoo houses a huge diversity of animals - giant pandas, gorillas, big cats, sea lions, hippos, penguins and many more. There are good fishing grounds along the River Cher and also nearby is the rich wildlife habitat of the Prairies du Fouzon, home to 300 species of plants and a breeding site for curlew and corncrake.
