Families or couples can choose their own style of holiday at La Joie du Muguet - relax in privacy sitting on the terraces or in the shade of fruit trees, enjoy the entirely private solar-heated pool with its shallow end that's perfect for children - or enjoy all sorts of activities: table tennis, fishing, golf , horse riding, cycling, sailing, walking, shopping at local markets, zoos, activity centres, museums ..... or visit the renowned châteaux and vineyards - or enjoy a mix of both relaxation and activity.
With a kitchen sensibly equipped for a family and a Barbecue, you can choose to self-cater or you can eat out at one of the many restaurants in the surrounding towns and villages all of which welcome children. Bedroom 1 suits a couple. Bedroom 2 is just right for a couple and 2 children, with room for an extra travel cot or Z-bed too (which we provide).
As owners we are a family that lives in France and we, and those who help in the maintenance of this property, can offer you knowledge of our area that only comes with having lived there for many years. If you have any questions please do just email us and we will always do our best to provide a full response. We and those who help us live near enough to the cottage to be helpful but far enough away to avoid being intrusive.

La Joie du Muguet being between La Loire and Le Loir rivers, is well placed for exploring the Loire Valley, known for its gentle climate as much as for its renowned Châteaux and Vineyards. Our favourite châteaux are all within a family friendly length of drive and include Saumur (we love having a picnic outside on the grass looking down on the river La Loire), Baugé, Angers, Langeais, Tours, Villandry (with its beautiful gardens and maze), Amboise, Ussé and Chénonceau. Vineyards include Bourgeuil, St Nicholas de Bourgeuil, Saumur, Chinon, Vouvray and many more.
The same type of trip takes you to Holly Park, Doué Zoo, Riding shows, Cave dwellings, River trips, Petrified stone carvings, a Tank Museum, a Mine and lots more. Our website provides sources of more information.
Noyant, 4km away, and much larger than Auverse, has a good range of shops and a good, Friday market and several restaurants and cafés. Baugé 15min away is even bigger and has a pretty Château. Within a 30min drive from the cottage you can reach beautiful gardens, water activities, horse riding, golf, tennis, fishing , bowling and ice skating. Pretty places nearby include Gizeux, Gudenieau, Breil, Linières Bouton, Mouliherne, Le Lude, which is on the river Le Loir, and of course the beautiful town of Saumur. Tours and Angers are 1 hr away.
The many restaurants all welcome families and Chinese, Italian and Indian restaurants are to be found among the traditional French ones. There are also many take away options nearby from gourmet French to Pizzas.
