About this location

The Pays de la Loire region

Enjoy the rural peace and fabulous history of our area. Great area for walking and superb cycling routes, the roads are quiet with lots of lovely picture postcard villages and countryside towalk or pedal through. Amble through the beautiful forest just 200 meters from the cottage. Visit Chinon, Saumur, Amboise, Angers and Tours for châteaux and historical places of interest. Taste the wines of the Loire on the river route from Saumur to Chinon, lots of Wine domaines and sample the goods. The sparkling wines of Saumur really must be sampled.

Futurescope is just over an hours drive, for a really great visit go to "Puy du Fou" showcasing the history of France in a theme park located close to Cholet 1 hour 20min drive from the cottage. Both are fantastic value for money theme parks. Futurescope is good for children over 12 and adults, Puy du Fou is good for over 5s and adults, it has something for everyone.

Lake swimming at Rillé and the little steam train which still operates and the Parc d' Lathan is a wildlife water sanctury.

During the summer months there are numerous music festivals in the area which are generally free.


Visit the Museum of Jules Debois the famous French sculptor born in "Parcay Les Pins". It's just a 7 minute walk down to the village. The village Café bar opens for lunch and evening meals can be booked. Picnic in the grounds of the Château at Gizeaux or Breil les Pins just a short distance from the cottage.

Try the local lunchtime restaurants offering 4 courses including wine for around 11 euros at Rillé just 2k away Liniérs Bouton 5km away and auberge d'Hommes 10km from the cottage.

Enjoy natural swimming in the lake at Rillé locally or at Lac d'Hommes 10km. Alternatively swim in an outdoor pool at Breil les Pins 7km from the cottage, try plage des lac de L'Monnerie close to La Fleche, it's a recently constructed man made beach with a fresh water swimming lake plus an open air pool with water slides and good facilities.

Visit markets: La Fleché on Wednesday's experience and taste the food of rural France.. Saumur market is on Saturday's enjoy the ambiance and beauty of the town. Angers market on Saturday too, it's huge, having market areas for fruit, veg, meat, fish, flowers,plants, and an antique market too, the fresh fish market is exceptional for sea food lovers.

"Just perfect - a real home from home!"

"WOW" - that's exactly what we all said as we entered the gite and the "wow"s continued as we explored each of the rooms! The property was much larger and prettier than we had anticipated and is certainly the best equipped gite that we have ever stayed in. Everything that you need is readily available and we felt at home within minutes. Carol and Ray are excellent hosts and have thought of everything! They left us a starting pack that was greatly appreciated especially after such a long journey. Our teenagers were delighted with the wifi and satellite TV which gave us grown ups plenty of time to chill and enjoy a very relaxing holiday. The garden is beautiful and a wonderful place to spend a balmy evening sipping local wines under a superb starlit sky. The Loire valley itself is stunning and there is plenty to do for everyone. Highly recommended!

Many thanks for your comments, we do really appreciate the feedback of our clients, it's so important and helps others to make informed choices.
So good to meet your lovely family, hope to see you again at the cottage.

"Great cottage and location, lovely gardens and nice people to deal with."

It seems that Carol and Ray have thought of everything at Le Haut Pins. You arrive to find a beautiful old cottage surrounded by a large garden with a seating area and barbeque, mature trees and then … More

Many thanks for your comments on Le Haut Pin cottage, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to perhaps seeing you again for a return visit to our peaceful little retreat.

"A Perfect Home from home.........."

Where do I begin.......... Carol and Ray you have a wonderful cottage that has been tastefully decorated with all the appliances you'd expect to find at home. The welcome pack
was a nice touch especially after hours of driving from Calais.

The location is peaceful just a few minutes walk outside of the village centre, where you can find a shop, bakery and bar (The opening times are random, but that's rural France!)

To sit in the garden watching the Woodpeckers feeding in the morning or cycling around
the local villages was so relaxing.Visiting the local towns and wine caves along the Loire was within easy reach by car or bicycle.

Once again thank you for a wonderful holiday, we will be back...........

Many thanks for being such lovely guests at our little holiday retreat
Le Haut Pin, we look to seeing you again in the future perhaps.

"Very Comfortable Cottage"

A peaceful location with great walks in nearby woods and very well equipped with everything you could need in the way of towels and bedding as everything thought of by Carol and Ray. Also good location for visiting the surrounding very pretty Loire region or relaxing in the large garden. A great chilling holiday.

So pleased you enjoyed your holiday.

"Fantastic comfortable cottage everything you need for a great holiday"

The cottage was very well located, perfect if like us you love cycling, the area around provide great cycling roads and a couple of lakes nearby for swimming. The cottage was really lovely and provided everything you needed for a great holiday, we loved the garden area and BBQ, the house is ideal for 2 couples as there are 2 double rooms (not twins which is often the case) and each had it's own bathroom, in addition there was another annex that could be used as a bedroom. The owners were very friendly before and during our stay and were available by phone should we have any queries. The house itself was spacious and very well appointed all towels were provided as well as a welcome addition of some food supplies for our first night. We would definitely stay again. Also very good value for money for what we got compared to similar properties we have stayed in in the UK.

"A perfect blend of traditional French charm and mod cons in a great location"

We loved the authentic and traditional French charm of Le Haut Pins. It managed the difficult balance of retaining the rural French feel but with everything you needed. The village was quiet but had great amenities within walking distance including a boulangerie and well stocked village shop, which is rare. It was our third trip to the Loire area so we knew what to expect and enjoyed lovely cycles along the dedicated cycle paths, great local walks and a trip to the chateaux. Le Haut Pins has a great aspect which is not overlooked, the weather was kind so we made really good use of the garden, patio area and BBQ. Would highly recommend and would definitely book again

"Idylic, tranquil, perfect to re-charge those batteries!"

Myself & 4 friends stayed at this lovely, (very French!) property in August 2012, for 10 days... I could quite happily have stayed longer, but unfortunately, as for most of us, we have to get back on … More

"Perfect holiday property in Parcay."

Excellent place to stay. Friendly owners (and neighbours). Welcome Pack was most welcoming. 3 large bedrooms, large lounge and large fully equipped kitchen - where we spent most of our time when in the cottage, Lovely peaceful, scenic area with lots of places within easy reach (but would need a car). 5 Minutes walk to village boulanger - get there early for the croissants or they're gone. Already planning trip back.
