Les Balcons

Your Loire Valley vacation rental

The lounge of Les Balcons vacation rental in Le Grand-Presigny

'Les Balcons' is a substantial 3 bedroom Loire Valley house over two floors with a delightful raised balcony offering lovely views, giving you a countryside feel but with all the village amenities. There is also a 'Juliet' balcony off one of the bedrooms. The house is located in the charming village of Le Grand Pressigny in Southern Touraine within the Centre - Val de Loire region in France.

From your Loire Valley house it is only a few minutes walk to the village centre with its restaurants, bars and shops. The village’s location halfway between the cities of Tours and Poitiers makes it an ideal base to explore the Loire Valley, its many chateaux and pretty villages, as well as the department of Vienne, where you can visit the theme park of Futuroscope. The nearest chateaux  at La Guerche and Le Grand Pressigny, itself, are only minutes away. You can have a true French experience as it is relatively 'tourist free' but still take advantage of all this beautiful area has to offer, everything from picturesque villages, citadel towns (many with their own chateau), sandy beaches by beautiful lakes, safari parks and troglodytes.

As you can see from the old postcard below our street has not changed much over the years (apart from the name) so you will be able to get a feel for true French country living.
