Tunnels, towers, follies, fireplaces and panoramic 360 degree views of sensational French countryside - Mondon is a magical place with a truly healing quality.
Dating back 1,000 years and once a religious order, Mondon is an incredibly special and unique holiday home. Historic features like underground tunnels, subterranean rooms and a nympheum give it a wonderfully characterful and spiritual feel and there’s no denying the restorative and uplifting ambience. Inside, the rooms are spacious and tasteful, with all the home comforts you could want. And nearby there are walking trails, rivers, vineyards and chateaux to explore at your leisure. There is genuinely nowhere in the world quite like this.
There are some wonderful historic sites nearby, from the many chateaux of the Loire to the town of Richelieu and the classical gardens at Villandry. You can swim and canoe in (or picnic by) the river at Chinon.
