We stayed here with another couple. It was a perect Gite for the 4 of us. Good facilities and ideal for looking around the area. The villages close by had nothing open, there were cafes and restauran… More

Spent a lovely week here with friends. Well equipped, large house with fantastic grounds for children to play in. A great place to explore the beautiful Loire Valley from, or simply to relax in the garden.

"rustic charm, secluded gardens, peaceful, sooooooo relaxing, oh and a perfect location to expolre the rest of the Loire!"
Holidaying with my husband, daughter (student) and sister-in-law with 2 teenage daughters, this was the perfect getaway for us! Waking the first morning to rain, there were plenty of games to amuse and Wi-Fi connection for FB addicts who may spontaneously combust without it! There's TV (if you really must!) and all those mod cons we've come to take for granted. The washer was a Godsend and was well used as my daughter met us in Saumur at the end of her inter-railing adventure, presenting us with dirty washing on her arrival!
This home is sooooooo relaxing. From the moment you drive into it's secluded garden with long driveway, you see that lovely old farmhouse, charming, idyllic and faithfully restored and don't ever want to leave! Close the gates to all the stresses and strains of modern living and be transformed to a bygone era (or was that just me?!) Even the garden is delightful with an impressive variety of fruit trees which you can help yourself to! But when you do need to stock up Super U is minutes away.
We promised ourselves this would be a restful holiday and despite running around like mad things some of the time ( arriving back from Son et Lumiere in Amboise at 2am!) it really was relaxing. We took advantage of the garden with all it's lovely furniture in the mornings to chill out and toured in the afternoons, returning to dinner al fresco every night and our oasis of calm. Go away world!
LOVED the bikes (4 of them) which were ideal for all the family and cycling is something we hardly ever do at home so it was wonderful to cycle up to the edge of the Loire at night and take in the scenery.
10 minutes from Saumur with lots of lovely shops to explore and half an hour to Angers with my favourite Galeries Lafayette and us girls were very happy!
Lovely home, lovely holiday, we'll certainly be back!

"A Beautiful Property & Quiet Location"
This is a beautiful property completely detached with gates to the drive way so very secure for a young family. Lots of garden surrounding the house with ample trees and bushes, we actually played hide and seek in the garden with the children! Patio furniture in abundance with 3 sun umbrellas, this garden would be fantastic in the summer, unfortunately for us we travelled at the beginning of April and the weather was only slightly warmer than the UK though still managed to sit in the garden twice. House is very spacious and extremely well equipped, extra special touch was a welcoming bottles of wine. Would love to return again one day. Should you be unlucky with the weather, the wood burner is great for any cold evenings!
