The property has over 10 hectares of private grounds and lies next to a small village that has a restaurant and boulangerie. The Chateau is ideally suited to family groups of up to 28 guests and is a great value for money.

Most notably: Azay-le-Rideau, Loches, Chenonceaux, Valençay and Villandry.

Local Area / Activities

The nearest airport is Poitiers (70km away). The chateau sits on the edge of the small village of Ciron with boulangerie for your bread and croissants in the morning. Le Blanc is the nearest town of a reasonable size 14km away. It is very attractive and has some excellent restaurants.

Ciron is located in the heart of a Regional Parc – La Brenne – South West of the Berry area, one of the regions of the Centre Val de Loire region. Therefore it is at the corner of three different areas: Berry, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes. There will be a number of travel books in the cupboard close to the kitchen entrance door to inform you of possible venues to visit. The Michelin travel book “Châteaux de la Loire” is an ideal guide on which to build your itinerary. However if you don’t want to travel too far then there is always the pool to lounge beside!

Poitiers is about 75km from the chateau. It is an interesting and attractive city that is worth a visit for the famous Le Futuroscope.

The main area of interest to be found nearby is the Regional Parc, La Brenne, which has over 7500 hectares of lakes and ponds and a few villages that are worth a visit.
