The sheltered 12 x 6 meter heated pool is situated in the walled courtyard and provides the perfect place to take a languid dip. It is the ideal spot to catch up with holiday reading, bask in the sun or nod off on the comfortable sunbeds provided. There is fun for all the family in our games room which has table tennis & table football. The games room leads out to 2.5 hectares of grounds. Here we have a communal seating area where you can sit, glass of wine in hand, and watch the stunning sunsets. A large section of the land has been set aside for general recreation - Football, boules & croquet can all be played here. For the little ones there are swings, a seesaw and a slide they can play on. A selection of bikes is available for guests to borrow for small trips into town for a loaf, perhaps, or for longer trips around the quiet lanes in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Location description from owner

The Pays de la Loire region

The Loire area derives much of its fame from the large number of historically interesting buildings and towns that exist in the area.

For hundreds of years it was the region where the French aristocracy would come to relax and replenish energy reserves depleted by constant warring with the English.

The Loire area has extensive forests that provided the nobility with excellent hunting. To guarantee their comfort while in the area, they constructed opulent chateaux many of which are still standing and can be visited today.

The river itself has now been designated a world heritage site - a testament to the importance placed on the conservation of the wetland habitat which borders the longest river in France.


Allonnes

Saumur is an ancient, bustling market town, full of historic and elegant townhouses. It straddles a strategic and beautiful stretch of the River Loire. The Chateau de Saumur, the local wines, the sandy banks of the river, the equestrian traditions and historical sites, all the threads that typify the Loire region seem to be gathered together in Saumur. For those that find the town centre a little too comfortable, there are many trogolodite caves and dwellings to contemplate nearby.

There are many activities which can be enjoyed in the area. For those who enjoy cycling there is a huge network of cycle paths. These lead you down leafy country tracks or small roads and provide another way to enjoy the magnifent local countryside. There are many marked walks that can be enjoyed in the local forests. Nearby is an equestrian centre where horse-riding can be enjoyed. For those who like golf there is a 12 hole golf course just the other side of Saumur in a pretty town called St Hilaire de Florent. This is also the site of the famous Gratien Meyer sparkling wine and a wine tasting here could replace the normal 25th hole! In both Saumur & Bourgeuil there are riverside water parks set alongside the Loire where you can swim or hire dingys or canoes.

La Grange & La Forge lie at the heart of the famous Chinon, Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, Bourgueil and Saumur Champigny wine growing areas which are all within easy reach. Wine tastings are readily arranged on request.

In the immediate vicinity of La Grange, on the outskirts of Allonnes, lies the renowned Parc de Maupassant which boasts fine walks and a fine selection of gardens including a magnificent rose garden and a world famous peony collection. In neighbouring Brain sur Allonnes there is a medieval botanical garden with borders that feature over 600 varieties of medicinal and gastronomic plants and herbs. Throughout history these have been used for a variety of purposes including poisoning, very occasional healing and fairly frequent forays into witchcraft. Also in Brain are located world-famous caves where aspiring artists daubed in paleolithic times.

Allonnes (only 1.5 kms away) has a range of small shops including bread shops, a butcher, traiteur and, most importantly, a supermarket that is even open on Sunday mornings! It also has a garage, banks, hairdressers, & bars.

“Superb! A Benchmark for others to aim for”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2013

A superb location with the culture and classic French delights of wine and cheeses readily available. Nice and quiet plus peaceful to rest and enjoy the immaculate accommodation including a large spotless swimming pool. This is family run and the care and attention to detail clearly shows ensuring your stay is perfect. You can be assured of a genuine friendly welcome from a really nice family with local knowledge. The garden is secure and the Gite private so you can relax and enjoy your surroundings. This has to be the benchmark others aim to achieve. Thank-you I really enjoyed my stay

“Super super!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2012

What a lovely place to stay and the accommodation first class. Judy and Mark were great hosts and very helpful. So relaxing and enjoyable, just what we all needed. Near to many interesting towns etc so good location too.

“Excellent holiday for the whole family.”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2011

We stayed at La Grange during August for a week; myself, my husband and two children. This was our third visit to Volets Rouges and we will be back again, no doubt. Mark and Judy and their family are incredibly good hosts, very welcoming and friendly. They host welcome drinks to introduce everyone and a wine tasting session at a local vineyard during the week. The family also have a very friendly dog who my children fell in love with and were allowed to walk every day! The accomodation is really good, very clean, well equiped and tastefully decorated. We were extremely comfortable during our stay. The pool area is safe for children and large considering the number of gites. We spent alot of time around the pool its lovely and clean and generally quite warm. Judy even supplies pool towels which saves alot of space in the suitcase. The area has lots to offer, we took bikes as it's really flat and Saumaur is easily accessible by bike. There are lots of local restaurants and Mark and Judy are very helpful with bike routes and recommended places to eat and visit. Overall we would recomment this holiday to anyone really, no complaints at all!
