The location : 

The village is located only 200 kms south of Paris, with easy access by TGV (daily direct trains to Paris and Charles de Gaulle) and numerous trains from neighboring towns (Montrichard, Onzain, Blois, Tours…)

We are 25km south of Blois and 40 km from Tours in the heart of the Loire châteaux country.

The village itself is quaint and peaceful, tucked into a landscape of gently rolling hills, cultivated fields, and protected forests.

Biking and taking long walks is a natural past time.
For over 1000 years, Pontlevoy and it’s inhabitants have benefited from a micro-climat and the majestic presence of the Abbey whose grounds and gardens include a set of 16 beautiful buildings in the center of the village. There is even a megalith on the outskirts of town.

Trains go from Paris to Blois (15-20 mn from Pontlevoy) almost hourly in less than 90 mn.
TGV from St Pierre des corps (20 miles from the house) takes 45 minutes to central Paris Montparnasse or directly to Charles de Gaulle Airport.
Enjoy the proximity of the chateaux and their local wines (6 of the most famous are located less than 15 minutes away) and discover the quality of life in our picturesque village, unharmed by tourism.

1h30 mn from Paris Porte d’Orléans and you are only 20 minutes away from the Hospital of Blois in case of emergency.

Our village also offers a unique community of people.

For centuries, students have come to the Abbey (now the property of an American entrepreneur that welcomes university programs from all over the world).

In bygone years the nobility sent their youth to the Abbey for their studies and built prestigious homes. Therefore, the village is surrounded by noble properties and lovely gardens, not to mention the stunning countryside. Surrounded by farm lands, all routes seem to lead to Pontlevoy.


The cottage, a confortable, quiet and romantic upscale home with luxurious equipment. 

Located on the historical main street of the picturesque village of Pontlevoy, adjacent to the abbey (50 mtrs) and within a stone’s throw of the local bakery, 3restaurants and 3 pubs, Amelia was once part of the Abbey grounds and the courtyard is similarly paved with the famous “stone of Pontlevoy”.  

The cottage is full of character and boasts original architectural details, beautifully patina walls, tiled floors (famous beginning of century “tommettes” and 1000 years old stones of Pontlevoy in the house), brand new kitchen, confortable Italian shower, stone, beamed ceilings. In Pontlevoy, there are three great restaurants within a 2 minute walk from the cottage, 4 pubs, 1 pharmacy, 1 supermarket, 1 bank, 2 doctors, 1 dentist, plumbers, electricians, organic farm, 2 vineyards, 2 schools….

Total surface : 90 M2 composed of a main living room  30 M2, 1 kitchen + dining room overlloking the courtyard (30M2) and  1 master bedroom on the first floor + 1 bathrooms.

This property falls into a very different range of unique and unsual houses. It is the property of an artist and some of her artwork is the walls…
