Situated approx 20 miles south of Saumur, this cottage is within easy reach of the chateaux and vineyards of the Loire Valley. The kitchen is very well equipped with quality crockery and utensils. The beds are extremely comfortable. The pool area is sheltered and decking and lavenders surround the pool itself. The owners are very welcoming and helpful but never intrusive. Fresh flowers, wine, bread and cheese were a lovely welcome gift.
We had a great week staying in the farmers cottage. Phil and Janet were there to welcome us warmly even though we arrived earlier than expected. The facilities were great, the cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the pool area was great for a lounge in the sunshine. We've already recommended the cottage to friends and would certainly be happy to return :o)
The Gite had everything we could have needed along with the private pool and the piece of quiet for a nice relaxing holiday. The beds were comfortable and having the patio to eat outside of an evening was ideal. We visited Samaur Chateau where a performance was included in the visit and this added to the great day we had looking around. We also went to La Fleche Zoo which was fantastic as it had bears, polar bears and we saw some baby white lions, the enclosures were very large and the animals seemed at ease even though it was over 30 degrees.
The owners of the Gite were extremely helpful when unfortunately my husband required the hospital, Phil & Janet helped us with making us feel at ease, phoning to see if they could help and translating with the local nurses. They even helped us pack the car as my husband could not lift when he came out of hospital.
The area surrounding the Gite is wonderful countryside and so relaxing, we would recommend.
We had a lovely week in Farmers Cottage. Janet and Phillip were extremely welcoming and helpful. The gite had everything we needed and more. We made very good use of the lovely private pool and our son (8) enjoyed playing on the Table Football in the games room. The gite is in a really good location for so many attractions- Puy du Fou, Futuroscope, Doue la Fontaine Zoo, many chateaus and of course the local wineries. We found the locals to be super friendly and would love to return again to do all the things we hadn't time to do..
My wife , adult son and I enjoyed a warm and sunny stay. The accommodation was exactly as described, very well equipped with English TV and a private pool which we really appreciated. We were very well located for many of the places we had earmarked to visit, particularly the chateau at Angers, as well as Saumur and Chinon, but the Bioparc at Doue la Fontaine was a wonderful surprise and well worth a visit. Phil and Janet were very welcoming.and helpful
