We joined the above reviewer at this lovely farmhouse in the Loire Valley. The property is a bit remote (not within walking distance of grocery stores). The town of Richelieu is approximately a 10 minute drive from the house. The home's interior is comfortably decorated...More

This property has been lovingly restored by Christine and John Huband. My friends and I could not have asked for a better place as a base to do our touring of the Loire. Though Le Roitelet is in the country, it is close enough to...More

About the neighbourhood
The historic walled town of Richelieu, just 7 kms away, has an ancient Market Hall and central market square, where the market is held twice a week. After the exertions of shopping, why not relax at one of the open air cafes around the square?

Or, if you are still feeling energetic, Richelieu has an extensive Park with exotic plants and trees, which is well worth a visit. Now owned by the University of Paris, it originally surrounded a chateau built by Cardinal Richeliueu in the 17th Century. Although the chateau was pulled down long ago, the Stables and Orangery can still be visited and there is boating on the moat.

Richelieu has an interesting layout of streets constructed at right angles, said to have been used as the original model for New York and many subsequent American cities....
