18th century stone barn loft in the Loire Valley for rent

In the heart of the Loire Valley, ten minutes from the fortress city of Chinon and the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, located in a tranquil valley with spectacular views, this renovated, 18th Century stone barn in Lerne is the perfect base from which to explore the Grand Chateaux and wineries of the Loire Valley. It is a 60 m2 loft for two with a luxurious bathroom and gourmet kitchen.

Many of the grand Chateaux - Villandry, Chenonceau, Usse, Azay-le-Rideau, Brezé and Saumur are easy half-day trips. For cycling enthusiasts, the main bike route through the Loire Valley is less than a km away; and for food and wine enthusiasts, the Loire Valley, is known as the "garden" of France. The property is surrounded by the vineyards of Chinon, Bourgueil and Saumur, which produce some of France's finest wines and best values. From its famous chèvre, the mushrooms of the troglodyte caves of Saumur, to the white asparagus grown in sandy Loire soil, the region offers a rich bounty.


This old stone barn was part of an abandoned farm that has been lovingly restored over the last eight years. Sitting on ten acres, in a magical setting with stunning views of the Chateau Montpensier and the surrounding fields, this holiday rental is perfect for those wanting to explore the Loire Valley’s sites. The barn has been renovated and equipped in the highest standards, and will provide a very comfortable home base for visitors to the region.


Your hosts, former restaurant owners from San Francisco, are available to cater meals and conduct local food and wine tours. 

Rent: from $195 per night. Smoking only allowed outside.
