The Pays de la Loire region

Just the mention of the Loire Valley conjures up images of grand extravagant chateaux, castles, exquisite gardens & vast moats. It encapsulates the history and a romantic vision of France. From the 15th to the 18th centuries it was the playground for Kings, Princes, Dukes and Nobles, their vast family fortunes and the wealth of France turned it into a vast neighbourhood of lavish chteaux,. Rich and concentrated in architectural treasures UNESCO named the entire region a World Heritage Site in 2000.

The Renaissance architecture and earlier defensive fortresses at Angers, Chinon & Loches are stunning and numerous other chteaux small & large can be found throughout the Loire Valley.:-
Fontevraud Abbey 20 minutes is the burial place of Richard the Lionheart son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine.
Saumur, 30 minutes, tourist town (Saturday market) chteau and good shops and restaurants.
Montreuil Bellay 15 minutes, chateau town
Loudun 15 minutes, good market on Tuesdays, nice old town centre with shops and recent renovations.
Thouars 20 minutes excellent market on Fridays.
Poitiers An hour away is the Futurescope amusement park and cinema complex, an excellent day out, and worth staying for the evening show.
Dou-la-Fontaine, 30 minutes away is the Zoo, apparently the best zoo in Europe.
Loches is a very pretty little historic town about 90 minutes away, with a market on Wednesday.
Richelieu steeped in history about 1 hour away..
The larger towns of Tours, and Angers, are about 1 hour drive.

Vinyards:-Lots of local vineyards where you can go to see the caves and taste the wine, no obligation to buy, but can you resist.

Close by Chteau du Ternay just a 2 minute drive, still the seat of the Count and Countess de Ternay and their family. The chteau is open for tours by arrangement and truffle hunts in the season.
Chteau du Brz a chateau under a chateau, about 15 minutes drive
Within about 45 minutes is the famous chteau of Uss, where Perault wrote Sleeping Beauty, a pretty fairytale castle
Azay-le-Rideau an elegant Renaissance chteau. On the Unesco World Heritage list .
Chinon a ruined chateau, is 30 minutes away & famous for its connection with Jean DArc...
A planned day trip is advised for those a bit further afield about 90 minutes away are the chateaux of Chenenceux, Blois, Amboise....

Saumur

Twinned with Warwick England and Verdun Germany the historical town of Saumur is set along the banks of the Loire River. The château dominates the region with its lofty position above the river, and the historic town spread beneath its feet offering excellent restaurants, interesting shops, brocantes,quaint squares and sunny bars to sit and watch the world go by.

Saturday is market day with its wonderful array of fresh breads, fruits, vegetables, flowers, meat, fish, cheese and livestock, plus a great variety of interesting gadgets and treasures.

Saumur is also home to the famous Cadre Noir, the National Equestrian School of the elite French Cavalry, the remarkable horsemanship of the Cavalry can been seen between April & October at regularly held shows.
With many activities, exhibitions and wine festivals scheduled throughout the year Saumur is a worthy visit, if not only to see the Cadre Noir and the impressive Château, which has been lovingly restored, but to also enjoy the beauty of this stunning river side town in the heart of the Loire Valley, France.

Combier Liqueurs:- Daily tours of the distillery
Claims it is the “original” formula used for triple sec, first created in 1834.

The Mushroom Museum – Along the river at St-Hilaire-St-Florent, nr. Saumur.

“Our stay at the La Boulangerie was truly a wonderful experience!”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2011

The setting is very picturesque and tranquil, with lots to see and do in the surrounding area. The numerous Chateaux are very impressive, with the nearest in Montreuil-Bellay being particularly pretty. There is also lots of wildlife and we were lucky enough to see wild deer and a great number of birds of prey. The property itself is full of character and beautifully presented. The garden and pool area are perfect for lazy sunny days. Our trip was made all the more special by our fantastic hosts John and Margaret. They were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and were always on hand, without being intrusive. Their kindness in inviting us into their home for a delicious meal and taking us to the local wine cave was way above their call of duty, but very much appreciated!

Thank you again for your kind review it was a pleasure having you both stay. Will you be able to make it again this summer? We certainly hope you can. The wine harvest has produced exceptional wines.

“Beautiful Holiday Property - Wonderful time”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2011

Had a very enjoyable week at this beautiful gite. Very clean and well prepared. Some complimentary provisions (including a bottle of wine) and fresh veg from the garden added to the welcoming atmosphere. A lovely pool (new loungers and seating) trees and pretty, well kept gardens, John and Margaret can be proud of the high standard of the facilities and the warm welcome they offer. If you are looking for a beautiful rural location this may be for you. Excellent for cycling - mostly flat with enough small undulations to keep it interesting and virtually no traffic with a small town or village every few Km.

Thank you for such a lovely review of the property,it was very kind of you to take the trouble to send it. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday stay here, and were able to explore all those lovely little villages that are so often lost to those that keep to the major routes. You still hold the record for the most number of kilometres covered on your bicycles, nobody comes anywhere near you.
