vines and more


A delightful cottage in the centre of a village in the picturesque wine-growing area of Centre-Loire, best known for Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume wines. Mesves sur Loire is nestled between Pouilly sur Loire ( 6 kms) and La Charite sur Loire (7 kms). La Charite is a medieval town with an Abbey which is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town walls form part of the Route of Santiago de Compostela. 

Mesves is a very friendly traditional French village with two bars and a well stocked shop which also sells bread and croissants.  There is a weekly cheese van in the village square, a mobile pizza van and lots of lovely restaurants locally. Our favourites are Chez Memere, Restaurant de l'hotel le Laurier and L'Auberge de Saint Thibault.  

The area offers outdoor activities to suit a wide variety of tastes.  These include wine and cheese tasting trips (a must), canoeing on the Loire, cycling along the velo route, fishing on the Loire, bird watching, walking, horse riding, golf and visiting local chateaux along "La Route Jacques-Coeur", as well as the many beautiful gardens open to the public in the area.

The cottage is spacious and has been extensively renovated and modernised. It has two large bedrooms, each with its own shower room, a well-equipped kitchen and a separate dining/lounge area.

There is a garden/sitting area to both the front and rear.  The east facing front garden is ideal for breakfast while the west facing rear garden catches the afternoon and evening sun, perfect for evening cocktails and dinner.  Both are equipped for al fresco dining.
