Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite Wheelchair Access Romantic

Maison Pierre-Louis is an elegant and richly appointed home emphasizing comfort, quiet and luxury.

This 15th Century home is rich in an old world rustic charm, with many unspoilt period features, including the grand stone fireplace, Persian rugs, ornate chandeliers and a treasure trove of antique furniture and artworks. This maison is a place to come together and appreciate the simple joys that we leave behind in our fast paced modern lives. Sing together round the baby grand piano, relax with a good read in the vast library, or take a stroll on the 52 private acres of gorgeous Loire countryside.

Start each day of your stay with breakfast at sunrise on the large West terrrace, and close with cocktails and dinner on the East lawn on a warm summers eve. Maison Pierre-Louis is just over 1km from the nearby village of Varennes-sur-Loire with its bakery, mini superette, bar and tabac/newstand.

  • Fabulous!

    on 24/03/2016

    What a wonderful experience, from the warm welcome by the hosts, Steven and Bruce, to the fabulous environment they have created in this lovely home. Everything we could possibly want for a restful and comfortable stay was provided, imagine being curled up on an extremely comfortable sofa, in front of a crackling fire, listening to music from the huge collection of CD's flicking through books from the extensive library.

    We also took advantage of Bruce and Steven's superb culinary skills and had dinner prepared and served to us one evening, champagne and canapés in front of the fire followed by a 4 course meal in the dining rooms with paired wines and a selection of liqueurs and chocolates with coffee.

    A truly 5 star experience, we would have no hesitation in recommending this and will certainly be returning.

    Thank you Steven and Bruce so much for sharing this magical home with us!
