The Skylark at Songbird Sanctuary near Chenonceau in the Loire Valley

Located in: Civray-De-Touraine
Our 'Songbird Sanctuary" has two traditional guest houses and one house built into the cliffside. We can accommodate one person, a couple, a small family or a group of up to 18 people. This is our "Troglogite" - a guest home in a cave! It is a majestic space, with three entrances from the courtyard. The main entrance opens up to a large living space with several alcoves, where we have dining, office, den and two day beds that give you an extra sleeping area. There are doors also into the kitchen and the bedroom; all of the spaces are connected by interior doors too.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a full refrigerator, two electric burners and a combined mircrowave/traditional oven. There is a dishwasher in the apartment, the clothes washer and dryer are in a separate room on the property.

You can rent this one alone, or we will offer discounts for group rentals of more than one of the houses. The other houses are our main house, a three bedroom magistral beauty called ‘The Swan’, and our two bedroom cozy charmer called "The Dove". The previous owners were bird lovers, and had built some lovely nesting places into the cliff face, hence our decision on the names.

The property is set up on three levels. At the street, we have several caves cut into the rock and forming the foundations of the house above. There is a lovely pathway to the left, leading to the courtyard where you will find the Swan on the second level, and a staircase on the right, leading to the courtyard where you will find the Dove and Skylark, also on the second level. There is also a road that leads to this courtyard, so that you can bring your luggage up to the Dove or Skylark by car, before parking back down on the lower level. Both courtyards have a steep but beautiful stone staircase leading up to the land above the caves, which is our third level.

If you are looking to spend some time in the Loire Valley, this location is fabulous – you can walk to Chenonceaux - about 3 kilometers away - and we are very near the river Cher. There are multiple bicycle routes, we keep some bicycles in our storage cave for people staying here to borrow. There is a canoe rental place by the river Cher, a few minutes' walk from our house; you can canoe right under Chenonceaux! There are many castles in the area; you are close to Amboise and the wonderful museum at Clos Lucé, Leonardo da Vinci’s residence, which houses many of his experiments, designs and paintings. You’re a half-hour drive to Tours in one direction along the Cher, and a half-hour drive to Beauval Zoo & Park in the other direction. From Blois, Chambord and Cheverney to Vouvray, Saumur and Chinon, you can taste the wines of the Loire Valley, follow the rivers, see the castles and museums, understand why this is the 'Valley of the Kings'.

The place is beautifully quiet, however there is a train track that passes right behind the houses on the other side of the road. We are a bit removed from that, since the courtyards on both sides of our house are up on the second level, and not directly facing the street - but you do hear the train when it goes by.

To take full advantage of the Loire Valley, you really need a car. We have our own parking available right by the Songbird Sanctuary. You can take the train from Paris (or the airport) into Tours – the high-speed train takes a little over an hour – and rent a car there, if you don’t want to drive too long a distance. Or you can take a train directly into Chenonceau or Blére, both are a few kilometers from our place – which would be about a 40 minute walk. If you are planning to get around by bicycle, this could be a good solution for you, you can also take your bicycles on the train. There are taxi services in Bléré, I still have to find out about Uber. There is also an incredibly inexpensive bus that goes from Paris to Tours - it's part of the Ouibus system, and prices are usually 9 or 12€!
