Stunning 16th century Loire chateau with private tennis, sympathetically restored to its former glory with high ceilings, period mirrors and oil paintings. Vast, totally enclosed grounds of over 3 hectares include lawns, fountains, ponds and a rose garden with more than 6000 blooms. Add to this glorious setting a large pool alongside an Orangerie with full facilities and it is easy to see how you could happily spend the whole day outdoors. Chateau de Detilly is fully modernised and beautifully equipped offering the latest in modern comfort and convenience, with a wonderful array of outdoor activities for all ages, including tennis, badminton and petanque. Beyond the chateau grounds, the small village of Avoine is less than 2 miles away with shops, a small supermarket, bars and restaurant. The lovely town of Chinon is less than 5 miles away, whilst Amboise, Blois and Chambord are within an hour or so for the best of the Loire Chateaux. Beyond the many activities at Chateau de Detilly, the Loire river also offers lots of opportunities for outdoor pursuits; cycling along its banks, boat trips, and plenty of riverside towns and villages to explore on foot; gastronomy is renowned in the region, and of course this is one of the most important wine producing regions of France and no holiday here would be complete without a visit to at least one'cave'.
