Nestled in the true heart of the Loire Valley lies a true marvel of Gothic architecture. The Chateau de Falloux dates back to the 18th century, with extensive improvements made during the 19th century and others recently completed in 2018, which have given a renewed and modern feel to each of its rooms, while maintaining the solemnity and history that characterises this property. Herringbone parquet floors and soaring cathedral ceilings combine perfectly with the modernity of a fully fitted kitchen with Carrara marble surfaces. Wide antique staircases lead you to a multitude of rooms where carved fireplaces or sumptuous chandeliers will make you never wish to leave this warm and cosy atmosphere. Chateau Falloux is as enchanting location as the Verzee valley that surrounds it, with extensive grounds full of nature and fresh air.
