We are situated in a small hamlet with a mixture of farms and houses, we are surrounded by open fields and country lanes which can be explored by foot or cycle. Whilst offering a rural, tranquil & relaxing setting we are only 800 meters from a main road, leading to many of the major attractions that this part of the Loire has to offer, thus making it a perfect location for exploring this truly beautiful part of France.

The farmhouse provides a very spacious & fully equipped self contained accommodation for 5 persons + a baby and has been furnished throughout to a very high standard with a blend of modern and old furniture, with many of the original features, such as beamed ceilings, remains of a grain press and exposed stone walls from the "Tofu" stone of the region. All the equipment and home comforts are in place for guests to have that perfect well deserved holiday. The accommodation has it's own private terrace with a covered area which is perfect for outside dining or simply relaxing and enjoying the lovely countryside and peaceful surroundings. There is a large "play garden" with swings, table tennis, slide, badmington, connect 4 and swingball to keep our younger guests amused and an overground 1.2mtrs x 5mtrs splash pool to cool off in during our lovely hot summers. There is an assortment of bicycles both adults & children which our guests are welcome to use during their stay.

We have a large vegetable garden where guests can pick their own depending on the season and our chickens are happy to provide you with eggs in exchange for some scraps. The chickens are always very popular amongst our longer guests.

The Loire Valley region

The Loire has something for everyone, young & old. With its amazing architecture, stunning chateaux, the "Loire" river , gardens, amusement parcs, museums, troglodytes, beautiful villages to discover, vineyards and charming sea side resorts - the "Loire" is brimming with days out for all the family.


In our nearest town Montreuil-Bellay there are two supermarkets, butchers, bakers, newsagents, banks, an open air swimming pool open in the Summer months, various activites to be enjoyed on the river 'Thouet' including canoeing, pedalos, fishing. There is aslo a selection of restaurants and bars.

The Loire is famous for it's wines and just minutes away from our doorstep are the "route de vignobles" - wine tours, which you can follow and stop in one of the many vineyards for a tour and sample some of the local produce.

We are set on the edge of the beautiful Loire Valley, less than 15 minutes away from Saumur, with it's wonderful chateau and bridge, world famous equestrian centre, daily vibriant markets and it's wide choice of resturants serving both local and international cuisine. The historic town of Thouars with beautiful views from the via-duct and the picturesque town of Doue La Fontaine which boasts one of the worlds biggest rose collection along with it's annual rose festival and one of Europes leading zoo's are both only 15km from the "Le Vieux Logis"

We are ideally situated for walking, cycling, golf, watersports and exploring all the major attractions that the "Loire" has to offer as well two of the biggest theme parc's in France - Futuroscope at Poitiers and the Le Grand Parc Puy du Fou. The coast can be reached by car in less than an 2hrs or for those who want a taste of Paris, you can be there in under 2hrs by train from Saumur.

"Great house and facilities for children and we couldn't have felt more welcome"

We stayed for a week at the beginning of September. From the minute we arrived we felt very welcome. Keith and Julie had left us homemade jam, eggs from their chickens and a large bowl of homegrown tomatoes. The gite is well furnished and very comfortable with everything you could want. The kitchen was extremely bright and spacious which I particularly liked. We travelled with our 2 year old son and there was a wide variety of toys waiting for him including a ride on tractor and tricycle parked outside! We enjoyed the terrace most evenings as the weather was fantastic, and made use of the adult games provided by playing scrabble!!!!

The garden area was an extra bonus, with table tennis, a trampoline, tent and various ball games. The chickens were great to feed and provided us with plenty of eggs which we collected ourselves. We didn't use the pool much but another great feature.
We had a very pleasant evening enjoying Julie's table d'ote menu. Lovely food and wine all for 15 euros each!

By day three Keith had made our son a fantastic wooden lorry with crayons in the top which he absolutely adores. It is clear that Keith and Julie both love children and nothing was too much trouble and we didn't feel like we were imposing which is sometimes the case when a gite is attached to the owners own house.

A great base to explore the surrounding area and wonderful town of montreuil bellay (eat at the hostellerie Saint jean, it's fab).

All in all a great holiday in a great gite which I would highly recommend.

"Great holiday"

We had lovely holiday, again. It was the 3rd time we were here. The hospitality is great. Lovely surroundings, a lot to do. The garden with the chickens, toys and the pool made it very suitable for children.

"Excellent for families wanting to explore Loire area"

Nice double room and room with single and kingsize bed. Pool was very warm. Super walled garden with plenty of toys for children of all age. Loads of bikes free to use. Area is quiet for cycling in country lanes and about twenty minute cycle to supermarket or bakery.
Hosts are very friendly and live next door. Homegrown garden produce and eggs are free to use.
Would definitely recommend!
