We have restored a beautiful 19th century barn in a troglodytic site, in the commune of Chemellier, at the edge of the forest and a few kilometers from the wild Loire River, in the heart of the Loire Anjou Touraine Regional Nature Park.
Our large garden of 1700m2 is conducive to biodiversity, we do not use any chemical products for its maintenance.
The garden also includes a plot of old vineyard, which produces our wine.
A few steps from the house is a 5000 year old dolmen and a beautiful forest with many trails that will welcome your walks and jogging.
You will pitch your tent in the "carrée", a kind of grassy courtyard dug in the open air in the heart of a troglodytic complex of about ten cellars, with a well, a wine press, a bread oven, and you will discover on the spot a great underground surprise...but a surprise is a surprise!
This space is located in a courtyard of a troglodyte of the plain and is thus sheltered from the wind, and gives the impression to be a little out of time...
After having parked the car on our parking, we reach the square on foot (20m).
The place is dominated by a beautiful maple: we can put ourselves under its shade or in the sun, in the choice. The grassy ground is relatively flat.
The whole square is for you!
The sanitary facilities
We give you access to our bathroom, with a sink, a bathtub and a toilet.
You will be able to access it until 11 pm.
A drinking water point is located outside.
We provide an electrical outlet and an extension cord at no extra cost.
The square is equipped with exterior lighting.
We know the area well: we can advise you, give you tips...

Our night at Manuel and Dorothée's was excellent. We found their property atypical and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The garden is full of charm and history. Our hosts welcomed us very well, advised us and we recommend 100% to stay there.
