Loire Valley vacation rental in the village of Barrou

Old Walnut Mill

We have two other options for Loire Valley vacation rentals, 'The Old Walnut Mill' and 'Le Bourg', in Barrou a small village again in Southern Touraine to where we have  guests returning for the third and fourth time...so we must be doing something right! Here is our favourite quote from a returning guest:  "The small village experience' was great and made us feel part of the landscape rather than just passing tourists."

Dear Pauline & Jim, thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality, your invaluable guidance/advice on where to go, what to see, where to eat etc and especially for your invitation to the 'moules frites' night in the village which was an unforgettable experience!!! We have gained a fabulous insight into the beautiful rural France and will take home lots of happy memories.


Many thanks and our very best wishes,

From 'Le Bourg' vacation rental guestbook:


Thank you Jim & Pauline, we enjoyed your generous spirited hospitality and appreciated all your knowledgeable suggestions. The Loire region is lovely,  we enjoyed driving the quiet country roads, the beautiful rolling farmland and the quiet authentic little villages...and we loved 'Le Bourg' - such a wonderful place to stay.
