Gite of character, unusual in a 'country house' late 18th century, completely renovated. Former home of the master glass-painter Ray Sutter (1920/1988) who allowed five stained glass distilling all day soft light and colorful, relaxing, just like the sound of the weir, the Green Mill Goatherd, 'nearby. The decoration and cozy leave much room in limestone, lime and willow, natural materials in the country. Period furniture, 50s', fireplace, 2 bedrooms with private bathrooms, a kitchen, linen and housekeeping provided, will participate in your comfort… This place is also full of history : it is sandwiched between the two workshops by the artist Alexander Calder (1898/1976), American painter and sculptor, whose Ray Sutter was a friend… It was also the 'favorite' of his wife and muse exalted, that in 1930, had chosen this 'shack' for love of the work of Honore de Balzac ' : The Lily of the Valley', and whose shadow still hovers over the scene, through a stained glass flowered. A 'cottage garden', not overlooked is being created. The lawn is neat for your children and you can dine outside in a small courtyard surrounded by vineyards. The main principles of 'sustainable development' are applied here : everything is recycled or composted.. No chemical treatment.. Rainwater for watering.. Small outbreaks. Bike hire… A warm welcome is reserved for cyclists (enclosed) who will find a special place : it was in 1957 a center of the passage of the Tour de France, recently become the 'circuit at Indre bike'. You can then without car easily visit more than five remarkable sites of the 'Loire Valley' '

We stayed for a few days in this very charming cottage. Jean-Claude and Dominique are very welcoming and gave us lots of information about the region and the famous artists who lived in the village. The house is very clean, well equipped (recently renovated) and nicely decorated (light touch of vintage 60's, so cute). There are genuine stained glasses made by the previous owner who was an artist. It gives fantastic lights and colours effects inside. Our 6-year son liked very much playing on the 1st floor mezzanine, it is spacious and cosy. The cottage is quiet and there is plenty to do around: castles, abbayes, wine producers, walks, cycling routes… It has its own lovely garden, so we often had lunch and dinner outside. Highly recommended.
Hospitable, very friendly
Very friendly landlord/-lady, living opposite, open to any question you may have. Even your empty bottles get thrown away by them! Fully equiped house. Location good; only 6 km from Azay le Rideau (supermarket).
Feels like coming home, beautiful house and surroundings, very nice people
We had a very warm welcome from the owner. Coffee, tea, bread, butter and home-made jam were offered to us on arrival, so we did not have to go to the shops right away. For the children the owner had created nice corners in the house to play and hide. The house was very well cleaned. The house is very agreeable, spacious, good temperature and absolutely magnificent art (glass with beton). Sache is a nice little village with friendly inhabitants. The house is situated near a road that's part of bicycle-route (Indre a velo). Even with kids (from 7 - 11 years old) it was easy to make alternate trips in the region. In approximately ten minutes with the car there's a swimming pool. And of course the river Indre is beautiful and a possibility to angle. How relaxing ! We enjoyed living in the house for three weeks and wished we could have stayed longer.
