This well designed troglodyte home offers a unique proposition - you don't get many caves which have been converted to a such comfortable living accommodation - and the views over the Loir valley are to die for! Good transport links - 1 hr from Tours airport and 35 mins from Vendome and TGV link to Paris.

This home is simply amazing. It has all mod cons - under floor heating, mains water and drainage, air-conditioning, ADSL and some wonderful features - a beautiful glass tread staircase leading to a mezzanine floor and what the owner calls "the blue lagoon" - a large circular glass insert in the floor which floods the kitchen downstairs with light.

Enter through the double height glazed wall at the front straight into the kitchen/dining area which has its own fireplace and a moveable unit housing the cooker and hob! The wide stairs, carved into the stone lead up into the living space which is surprisingly light and airy. Further steps lead off to the right to a bedroom area with bathroom and two further bedrooms lead off to the rear. There are ensuite bathrooms in each of the bedrooms - which have been left unfinished so that you are free to choose your own tiles and decor.

At the front of the cave, above the kitchen is the mezzanine level which can be used as another living area, a study or office. The views from here are stunning - a 180 degree view over the river Loir and its valley.

The property faces south so benefits from good light and there is an electric shutter to the lower part of the double height to keep the interior cool in summer.

Outside there is a terrace area immediately outside the cave entrance and another one which is raised up - perfect for sitting with you glass of local wine and enjoying the views.

There is another cave lower down at road level comprising 3 separate "rooms" which can be used for storage or further developed.

You really have to see this to appreciate its beauty - we've come along way from the original cave dwellers!
