Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our house is in Palluau sur Indre, designated as a national historic village. Our three-story house, built around 1850 on older structures, has been fully renovated. We've installed handmade tiles and exposed some of the ancient stone walls. You enter our house into the dining room, the traditional layout in this region.

The kitchen includes all modern conveniences. The second floor is flooded with light, thanks to two very large skylights and two French windows opening onto decorative balconies. The second floor bath is lined with tile and includes a skylight. The third floor has been fully renovated and includes a half bath and family room, which also doubles as a bedroom.

Both Doran and I are very careful housekeepers, and you can be assured that we will treat your home with respect and care. Of course, we expect the same from our guests.

You can get to our house by car, train, and plane. From Paris, one can take a train to Tours or Chateauroux and rent a car. Besides the airports in Paris, two airports closer to our village are also an option. The airport in Limoges serves four airports in England on a regular basis and an additional four on a seasonal basis. The airport in Tours provides connections to London, Dublin, Porto, and Marrakech. Both airports have three or four car rental agencies.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The chateau that dominates the village was once owned by the Count of Frontenac, the Governor General of Quebec who expanded French influence and territory in Canada, including what became part of the United States, for King Louis XIV.

Our village is the perfect place from which to explore the chateaux of the Loire. Day trips are easy to major chateaux, such as Chambord, Chenonceau, Blois, Valencay, and others. Historic towns, such as Loches, Tours, and Bourges, are nearby.The Brenne Regional Park is great for walking, swimming, horseback riding, and bird watching.

Two golf courses, two public swimming pools, a beach in the Brenne, and horseback riding stables are close by, and there are tennis courts in the village. Country walks are steps from our door.

Other options include: vineyards of the Loire Valley, quaint villages, and museums in nearby cities. There are eight villages that qualify in our department as among the most beautiful villages in France: five are easy day trips.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Village markets offer the freshest vegetables and fruits. Our area is the center for goat cheese production. You can visit one of the numerous goat farms in our area, if you like.

In our village each view yields a glimpse of history. An 11th century priory dominates the view from our bedroom window. Inside you'll find Romanesque frescoes. A copy of one of the frescoes, unusual because of its rosy cheeks, is in the architectural museum in Paris. Our historically designated church offers interesting 12th century sculptures and stained glass.

And, of course, the entire village is crowned by the chateau, a pawn during the war between Richard the Lionheart, king of England, and Louis Auguste, king of France. Today the chateau is open during the summer as a museum dedicated to the history of France in Canada.
