Manor house built in 1640 offers a luxurious, refined and calming stay.

L’Hérissaudière was built in 1640 on the site of one of Diane de Poitiers’ hunting lodges, at the heart of the Loire Châteaux and the vineyards of the Touraine, 1 hour from Paris and 17 km from Tours. It lies framed by its flower-laden terraces and rose garden, in grounds with trees several hundred years old. Claudine Detilleux will give you a warm welcome, plus extremely useful information for your excursions and provide your meals in this haven of peace.
