n the heart of the Loire Valley, along the Thouet River: a 700 square foot converted barn (newly renovated) with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The house is ideally-situated in the heart of the Anjou wine region, a few miles from Saumur (well-known for it's castle and the French National Horse-Riding School, ''Le Cadre Noir'', wine growers, and troglodytes sites).

Also nearby: important castles in Angers, Chinon, Montreuil-Bellay, Brézé, as well as Europe's largest monastic center, the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, which features an excellent music and cultural program.

Other worthwhile day trips include the exquisite Loire Valley castles, such as: Chambord, Blois, Cheverny, Azay le Rideau, etc.

The house, which is about 187 miles from Paris (300 km), or about 2 hours by TGV, can accomodate two couples with children (sleeps six altogether).
The appartement includes : an entrance hall, a large sitting and dining room with a small equiped kitchen, one bedroom, a bathroom, and a small bedroom on a mezzanine level.

The space

La vue sur la rivière et la campagne environnante est exceptionnelle. Notre maison - ancienne, mais récemment rénovée - est située au cœur du Val de Loire, à proximité de nombreux châteaux et à 8 km de Saumur, célèbre pour son école de cavalerie et "Le Cadre noir". De très nombreux producteurs de vins (le Champigny ) se trouvent dans les villages alentours...
Vous pourrez profiter du parc autour de la maison et de la rivière...
Un détail important: le linge de maison, draps et serviettes de toilette sont fournis.

Interaction with guests

Et une bouteille de Champigny ou de "Quart de chaume" vous attendra!

Nice quite place to stay. Perfect for a family. My son loved the three cats outside. A nice hilly area with vineyards and the romance of France. Merci

Fredric is an absolutely wonderful host, by far among the most gracious and welcoming hosts I have stayed with. His home is very pretty and homely and just what any traveller would ask for. The location is just stunning and the pictures do no justice to it at all. If you are looking for a relatively central location but far away from the hussel bussel of daily life, I would urge you to go to his home to have a tranquil time.

Lovely place with beautiful view and quiet surrounding! Frédéric is a nice host who helps you if needed

Frederic's lovely country estate is a superb peaceful and scenic location. Frederic is a friendly and outgoing host and we enjoyed our conversations with him. It is a handy location to many places of interest.

Quiet - off the beaten path. GREAT view from the main salon. There was just the right amount of everything for our stay. The welcome was cordial and in 3 languages. It will help to speak french here (it is France after all) but we communicated with Frédéric in written english and spoken french. The neighboring villages supplied everything we could want - Saumur has a great market. We had almost great weather but the warmth of a perfect fireplace with enough wood was the cherry on top. This is not the Waldorf mind you so bring what makes you happy. Kitchen is well equipped for simple meals. We were warm (in a cool spring), calmed by the ambiance and our experience here was one to repeat. We are both in our 60s, retired and experienced in the ways of French rural life (18 years here now) so this place really fit our style. Looking for room service? Stay at the Waldorf. Looking for that comfortable, lived in and easy? This is a good choice.
