The Loire Valley region

The Loire valley region is famed for it's wine, fairy-tale Chateaux and it's historic towns. In 2000, UNESCO added the central part of the Loire Valley, including the Maine-et-Loire region, to it's list of world heritage sites stating "an exceptional cultural landscape, of great beauty, comprised of historic cities and villages, great architectural monuments - the chateaux - and lands that have been cultivated and shaped by centuries of interaction between by local populations and their physical environment, in particular the Loire itself."


Chigne retains a strong rural culture and is surrounded by farms and woodland. For the physically active there are forest walks and cycling from the door. Locally, there is swimming (pools and lake), horse riding, tennis and golf. For those that prefer to relax, there is no better place to do that in the peace and seclusion of 'Le Pressoir'.

Markets in the area:

Monday: Local market at Baugé. From Noon until 7pm, in the Chateau carpark. Chateaux and town worth a visit.

Tuesday: Bougeuil, great for food. An hour away but worth a visit to see the vineyards and maybe buy some wine too!.

Wednesday: La Fleche, good for food, very pretty town.

Thursday: Le Lude, Chateau and gardens worth a visit.

Friday: Noyant, local market.

Saturday: Saumur, market set in Tudor style square, beautiful chateau.

Saturday: Angers, huge market selling all types of produce and antiques too, combine with a visit to the chateau.

"Our most chilled holiday.....ever !"

Yes, we wanted a different holiday to our trip to Florida earlier in the year and yes, we knew this would be a gamble with an 11 yo and 8 yo but we had the most chilled and relaxing time at Le Pressoir. It's so incredibly peaceful and is in the middle of very rural France but we loved every minute of it. Helping ourselves to the plentiful fruit and veg in the garden, fresh eggs, a very well equipped property and plenty to amuse the kids - trampoline, swings, climbing wall, hammock, not to mention playing cricket, swingball, footie etc, in the garden. Property itself was very spacious for 4 and had all we needed - good kitchen and bathrooms, lots of character and a bottle of red waiting for us from Denise and James. Not far from Le Lude and Bauge but worth travelling a little further to Saumur which was really lovely.
