General Description

This villa rental in France with heated pool and tennis court is located at the beginning of the 'route de Jacques Coeur', an historical highway with many châteaux, manors, abbeys and churches set along it. This 15th/ 16th century property is steeped in history. Once the residence of a Templar knight commander, nowadays it offers a peaceful and calm holiday location in the heart of France. Beautifully restored and furnished, warm colours and fabrics and period furniture create an inviting ambience.
