Located on the edge of a pretty village with all amenities and an 11th century church, the apartment is suitable for a couple wanting to visit the châteaux of the Loire Valley, near Saumur, Angers and Tours, near the vineyards of Bourgeuil, Chinon and Saumur in a relaxing setting.

Saumur is the home of the Cadre Noir Cavalry Regiment and the National Riding School of France, so that in addition to the many cultural events, there are many equestrian events. The nearest public swimming pools are at Noyant and Le Lude.

We can provide itineraries with maps for visits to châteaux, vineyards and historic towns if required.

The Pays de la Loire region

The Loire Valley, also known as the Garden of France, boasts a micro-climate which gives us warm summers and generally mild winters. The Kings of France built their châteaux here, so they obviously knew a thing or two! Château visits are a must when you come to the area, so too are the vineyards for wine-tasting and if you enjoy the wines why not take some local ones home as a reminder of a great holiday. We provide maps and itineraries for visits to châteaux and vineyards.


The area is eminently suitable for cycling, walking, horse riding, fishing and just generally "chilling out". Golfers please note we have many excellent golf courses, one of the best is located 13 km from the house. We are about 1.5 hours drive from Futuroscope at Poitiers, two hours drive from the wonderful beach of La Baule, an easy drive with good autoroute links. Visit Tours with its wonderful old town and of course good shopping, or Angers with its Château and incredible Tapestry of the Apocalypse.

The village itself has a baker, butcher, two bars one of which does meals. There are several brocantes and "Vide-greniers" held throughout the year in the village and in others around. In October there is an Apple Festival held in the village to commemorate the harvest of all the apple orchards in the surrounding area.

"Perfect break"

We both agreed that our holiday at La Croix de Noel was one of the best ever.
The apartment was in the area that we wanted to visit, near to Saumur. It's also in a large village with shops bars etc.
The apartment itself is very spacious for two people, equipped with everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. The owners, Lynn and John, are delightful and very helpful.
We used the literature and maps in the apartment to plan our days out. We visited the chateaux at Villandry and Chenonceau (which were amazing) and saw the display of the Cadre Noir at Saumur. Another 'must do' are the Ackerman caves at Saumur. Their wines are exceptionally good at very reasonable prices.
My lasting memory is sitting in the garden in the sun, looking out across the fields towards a 15C manor house drinking chilled sparkling Saumur wine.
We'll be back!
