Very large kitchen - dining room: the friendly place where everyone can meet a small glass of rosé in hand. Very well equipped kitchen.

The living room is very cozy and comfortable with all its sofas and its wood stove (wood offered).

A beautiful rear kitchen hides 2 fridges, 2 dishwashers, washing machine, dryer, boiler fuel.

In the outbuilding, 3 bedrooms upstairs with their private bathroom and downstairs a large living room; the working or relaxing lounge with internet access, and the pleasure lounge with the beautiful ping pong table.

Delivery of baguettes, viennoiseries under reservation.

Caterer, cook or housekeeper on request.

As for exteriors, beautiful swimming pool of 12/5 m flat bottom (140 cm), heated from June to mid September at 24 degrees. Parasols and pool beds to enjoy the view of the fields and the forest. A beautiful terrace protected by a pergola will allow you to have lunch and diners outside in the shelter of the sun. Possibility of long walks in the woods on foot, by bike or on horse riding. Tennis is next to the owner's house, as well as the fishing pond where fans will feast.

About De Schrynmakers de Dormael Stéphanie

We live on the spot, 1 km on both of our other two locations. We restored these buildings in 2008, and decided to share this extraordinary environment with others.

De Schrynmakers de Dormael Stéphanie purchased this chateau / country house in 1988

Why De Schrynmakers de Dormael Stéphanie chose Monthou-sur-Cher

We left Belgium in 1991. Our family bought this large 700 ha property in 1988. David is a farmer and has restored all these houses. And Stephanie loves contact with the customers, and manages the cottages (Gîte des Orfeuilles and Demeure de Bizard). Together we do our best to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

We are lucky to live in this property, which you can fully enjoy; wood for walking or horseback riding (thanks to the horse club which is our nearest neighbor), tennis on the ground near us, and two fishing ponds. End of September, beginning of October - depending on the year - we can listen to the slaughter of deer

We are also really close to the great castles of the Loire: Chenonceaux, Amboise, Blois, Cheverny, Chaumont sur Loire, Beauval Zoo ....

What makes this chateau / country house unique

calm, space, nature, big houses with all comforts, private outdoor pool and heated from 1 June.

Excellent Large Group Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (12) celebrated Christmas this year at Bizard. I would say that while many places can squeeze in 12 people, few are set up as well as Bizard with the large number of bathrooms, excellent kitchen, dining and family room setups - it worked extremely well and everyone could be together while still allowing space to get away from the group = a great layout with the separate barn building and its own game/family room. And Stephanie was a gracious host who went out of her way to make sure all went well. The grounds are extensive for hiking and horseback riding ( there is a riding school right on the estate). One of my personal thrills was coming home one night and seeing a group of wild boar on the property.It is also a good location for touring the Loire and seeing all the Chateaux and towns. Stephanie was a big help in setting dinner reservations for 12, locally and advising us on wineries to visit and places to shop (all within easy range). All in all it was a Christmas to remember for the entire family and Stephanie and Bizard played a big role in that. I would strongly recommend it for a family or other larger group getaway.

A truly amazing place

  • 5 of 5

It is really a most amazing Place. We were a big Family of 14 celebrating an anniversary. We could not have found a better Place to do it.

The first thing that strikes you is that it is so quiet. The surroundings are just spectacular and you can sit just for hours in quiet conversation or just listeining to the nature.

Stephanie and David are the Perfect hosts. Always available, always forthcoming and doing absolutely everything to make the stay good for us.

Needless to say the Loire Valley is full of sights, Nice villages and spectacular Castles. So much to see and so much to do, if you don't just want to sit there and do nothing, enjoy the nice pool or play football With the kids on the lawn.

I would recommend this Place to anyone looking for a Family Getaway or a big Place to spend a week or two With friends.

Fabulous time in the Loire Valley!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 families had a magnificent time during our week at this beautiful property! Stephanie was incredibly easy to work with and provided amazing customer service -- she was quick to respond to any questions or concerns prior to our trip, and once we arrived she was happy to assist with directions to local stores and recommend area wineries and sights. The house itself is exactly as pictured -- well-equipped, comfortable and impeccably clean. Thank you, Stephanie and David, for sharing your beautiful home with us. We hope this won't be our last visit

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to France, traveling as a group of 3 families with seven children ranging in age from 18 months to 14 years. The house is well appointed with everything you need to cook wonderful meals. Spacious, spotless and plenty of room for everyone to have their own space! Stephanie was a gracious host and checked on us numerous times to make sure we had everything we needed. We were close to many sights and Stephanie made many recommendations on wineries, places to visit and to shop. We couldn't have asked for more! We hated to leave this beautiful place and dream of going back again. Thank you, Stephanie and David, for opening up this beautiful home for people to enjoy. We hope to be back again someday!

All our best,

Janie, Todd, Isaac and Emma Grace Mote

Parfait!

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus au Domaine de Bizard pour un week end prolongé à 10 adultes et 9 enfants. Nous avons passé un excellent moment, facilité par Stéphanie qui a été très sympathique et arrangeante. La maison est spacieuse, joliment rénovée et décorée, très bien équipée et parfaitement conforme à la description et aux photos (voire peut être encore mieux!). L'espace extérieur est vaste et bien agencé et nos enfants ont pu s'en donner à cœur joie. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir.

The House of Bizard (19 people - 10 rooms - 8 bathroom) is totally isolated, between wood and fields. Peace and silence assured. two hours fromParis , in the middle of the Loire Valley, in the center of the Castles of the Loire. Soft and peaceful climate.

The House of Bizard is situated in the Domain " Les Orfeuilles " in Monthou-sur-Cher.

A privative swimming pool is warmed in 24 degrees beginning in June at the end of September. It is protected by an alarm in the standards.

A little farther in wood, there is a tennis

A lake is at your disposal. You can fish perches, rainbow, carps, roaches, or still pikes.

The natural amateurs can vary ballads in the forest of the property, on foot, by horse, or in bike, and admire animals there

and admire wild animals there (deers, wild boars and roe deers). You can attend in squall of the deer from in the middle of September, follow hunting with hounds in season or participate in an initiation into the silvicultural management of territory.

Our closest neighbor (400m is the Riding school of the Gue Péan. You can follow lessons.

For 5 km, in the village of Monthou-sur-Cher, a small grocer's shop will be very useful for you. If you wish Roger also takes care of the daily delivery of baguettes, croissants and similar products in the door of your house.

We are situated in the magnificent heritage(holdings) of the prestigious Castles: Chenonceaux, Cheverny, Amboise, Chaumont sur Loire, Chambord, the Zoo of Beauval is in 15 minutes.

Nice little tourist areas are situated in a 15 km :Montrichard, saint Aignan, Contres. The main cities of the region are Blois (35 km) and Tours (50 km).

Many small nice restaurants are within 15 minutes driving.

Other wealth of the region: the local vineyards which really begin be appreciated.

David and Stéphanie will indulge to inform you and to share you their passion for this region.
