Pommereau: a large lovely 12th century stone house in a verdant 12 acre private park next to a national forest. Just 90 minutes SW of Paris, Pommereau is near the Loire River, Chambord and other chateaux. The house has 5 bedrooms, including 3 with mezzanines. There is an additional sleeping apartment in the courtyard, a yurt, and a multi-purpose room (yoga, music, extra sleeping space, etc.) of 45 sq. m. There is room for 23 people in the main rooms, plus possible additional space.
Please, no smoking inside the house, and no cigarette butts outside.
There is a fireplace inside and a firepit outside for evening fireside meals and socializing-- please be careful.
No shoes upstairs please (it's carpeted).
Our cat, Pasha, is mostly outside.
Please be careful about turning lights off, and not putting hot pans/coffee pot on the table or counters without a tile beneath.
Please be careful with the fireplace. It's fine to use it. There's plenty of wood. Don't make big fires please, and be sure to use the screen.
The barn is beautiful, but off limits for more than a quick look, as we are renovating it.
Pommereau is a very solid medieval building, and after 600 years of Cistercian monks and 200 years of farmers, has now benefited from 25 years of both contemplative retreats, friends gathering, and family vacations.
We hope the special atmosphere will bring you tranquility, rest, inspiration and energetic replenishment!
