Description from owner

The property is located very close to the Lac de Rille a national bird reserve and adjacent to mixed forest which stretches to the Loire Valley. It is an ideal location for walking, cycling, canoeing , fishing, and birdwatching. A rowing boat and bicycles are available for hire.

The property is part of 'Les Mousseaux' , an old watermill on the River Lathan, which flows through the gardens. There is also a large wildlife pond and almost two hectares of organic gardens and woodlands. Wonderfully quiet and peaceful with plant conservatory, riverside walk and woodland.

We are ideally located for most of the best known chateaux of the Loire, close to both Saumur and Tours. An ideal location for a 'get away from it all' holiday. We guarantee tranquility and calm.

There is a large organic vegetable garden (fresh vegetables and honey from our bees, are for sale in season), flower garden, wildlife lake, and riverside (where fishing is possible). There is a private picnic area at the

There is a private picnic area at the end of the river bank. In spring and summer you may see kingfishers, the golden oriole and hoopoes near the river and green and spotted woodpeckers frequent n the woods near the house. Nightingales are regular spring visitors.

The Pays de la Loire region

The Loire Valley offers hundreds of attractions of historic interest, from its ancient chateaux, including the Chateau de Breze and its 'souterrains', troglodyte dwellings carved in the 'tuffeau' of the region, wonderful architecture in its ancient cities of Tours and Angers, and the unparalleled landscape of the Loire Valley and its tributaries. It is one of France's great wine making areas, and the sparkling wines of Saumur and Vouvray are a great attraction, with visits to its 'caves'. You can also visit the distillery in Saumur where the famous 'Triple Sec' (which predates Cointreau) is made, along with other liqueurs.

Just to the north is the valley of the little Loir, with its picturesque steep wooded valleys and deep flowing currents.

This is 'green tourism' at its best.

Breil

Breil is particularly famous for the August 15th Fete de la Chasse, which attracts 20,000 + visitors from all over France. (Visiteurs pour la Fete de la Chasse sont bienvenus. Le camping est aussi possible.) It is held at the Chateau du Lathan and culminates in a magnificient firework display. Great for all hunting dog, and wildlife enthusiasts.

The gardens of the chateau can be visited most days of the year.

Nearby is a working watermill, the Moulin de Jau, a long walk or short cycle ride away.

The Lac de Rille has a cycleway and forest track around its 10km diameter.

It also has a little steam railway in season, 'Le Petit Train'. See our website for more details.

“Lovely.”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2011

Les Mousseaux was just what we were looking for in our French holiday, and more. Adrian and Sally were wonderfully sweet and helpful, eager to share and help to make our stay comfortable. We especially loved the bicycles they provided, as the gite is perfectly located for cycling: flat, quiet, well-paved roads, and near to a very impressive number of well-marked cycle-routes. Other highlights of our stay there were the animals, the dramatic geese, sweet dogs and bizarrely loveable south american duck... as well as an impromptu (and fascinating!) lesson in Bee keeping from our hosts. The nearby lake (and canoe, also from the gite) was beautiful and lovely for swimming. All in all we found our stay here friendly, warm, homey, and brimming with potential for relaxation or adventure or some combination of both...
