Spacious Town House, France
Displaying 4 comments of 4 submitted
Live the French lifestyle in this beautiful home.
A fabulous town house in the central square of Richelieu. We had a wonderful time there, so comfortable and well equipped, it was home from home. We have always stayed in the country on previous visits to France but this time enjoyed living in the centre of town with all the facilities on offer, a lovely big park just off the square, nice restaurants around the square, a little supermarket round the corner and lovely French markets twice a week in the square, both bric a brac and food !!! We found lots of places to visit in the region with a numerous choice of Château, wineries and beautiful countryside and when all that got too much or too hot, we just relaxed in one of the two courtyards, one in full sun with the benefit of a paddling pool to dip your toes in or the second courtyard where it is lovely and cool sitting underneath a rambling wisteria - bliss! So glad we found this property and we can thoroughly recommend it.Judith (Suffolk, UK)

History and Peace in this beautiful small town.
Thank you Sheelagh for our stay in your house.
I wouldn't normally write a review but we enjoyed our holiday so much, that I thought I would. Your house was perfect in every way – lots of space, really well kitted out, a lovely garden and the splash pool was loved by the children as well as us (I sat on a chair in it reading a book which is a luxury as I never have time to read!). It was also an added bonus that the garden was totally dog proof! Great to go out of the big door at the front from the quiet of the house to being in the middle of everything – we loved the park and the swimming pool along with the great choice of bars and restaurants. Amazing not to have to drive.

Going back next year!
I apologise for taking so long to email but I just wanted to say that we had a fantastic week in Richelieu back in August. Your house is absolutely lovely, with the beautiful spiral staircase, the massive bedrooms and the pretty courtyard and garden areas. It is extremely well equipped and you could not possibly need anything else. We felt so at home there and really relaxed.
The house is brilliant being right on the market square and the little supermarket just around the corner was perfect for a quick shop. We really loved the beautiful park which was great for walking the dog.
Loved the fortress at Chinon and had a good day in Tours. The countryside is beautiful and so many chateaux!! I'd love to visit them all but my teenagers are not so keen!
It was a shame we only had a week there as it went so quickly and we hope to return for a couple of weeks.
So, many, many thanks for letting us share your little piece of France.

Great Family House

Our family used this property for a wedding and were not disappointed. It's full of quirky interesting character and ideally positioned on the town square with parking spots around. Although Richelieu is not big, all you need is available there: restaurants and coffee, tourist info shop, bank, small well stocked supermarket within walking distance and a much larger one with fuel 2 mins outside town. Great boulangerie too. Town ideally situated to drive further afield for chateaux etc and about 50 mins from Poitiers. The accommodation facilities are good, there's plenty of room and the wood burner took away the April evening chill. The back garden is indeed a sun trap and even at this time of year was hotting up when the sun was out. Sheelagh was most helpful throughout the process and has a good team in the area. Great place to visit and good home to stay in.
