Welcome to La Roche d’Enchaille

La Roche d’Enchaille is an elegant four-bedroom gite with out door hottub/jacuzzi in the Loire valley.

Set into a hillside with a wood behind, it enjoys uninterrupted views of the surrounding farmland and woods.

The house is a careful restoration and conversion of the farm that supplied the château of Cussay.

The history of La Roche d’Enchaille dates back to 1268, when the first record of the château can be traced as being sold to Guy the Doyen of St Martin.

The main west-facing wall on the site is formed from the original château’s ramparts: vestiges of these are present throughout the grounds, along with entrances to caves and tunnels. The locals swear there is a tunnel linking La Roche d’Enchaille with the church in the centre of Cussay some 5km away!

The château had several roles during its long history, including operating as a mint-striking coinage back in the 16th century, and more recently as a “relais de poste”.

There is a large cave carved in to the hillside above the farm, which was used during the Second World War as a refuge for the Resistance. It now looks after the owner’s wine!
