This is the only holiday rental in this area, located on the outskirts of the small village of Ambillou-Chateau and in a peaceful location, we hardly saw any of the local people. You will need a hire car.

Monsieur & Madame Bansard are lovely hosts, very friendly and helpful and they will give you information on places of interest to visit. They don't live on site but they are not very far away and can be contacted via phone. There is no Wi-Fi here but this was not a problem because it encouraged us to switch off from daily life and relax.

The house is fully equipped with everything for couples & families and although sheets & towels are not provided, they will provide these for a small cost. It was nice to return home each day and relax on the patio with a glass of wine, the property has lovely neat gardens. We found the use of the bicycles a bonus because we were able to ride to Ambillou-Chateau to buy baguettes & croissant each day. We didn't find any other places open for business which we think is due to everything in May being closed until the summer season occurs. But we did notice further along the road past the boulangerie, a shop selling provisions & wine/spirits. Take the time to go into their church, it is lovely.

It is in a perfect location in the countryside yet only 10-15 minutes drive to the small town of Doue-le-Fontaine where we shopped in Lydal supermarket for our provisions. There are several restaurants in Doue but only a few were open for business when we visited in May which was a disappointment. Only a 30 minute drive to Saumur or Angers which was perfect. There is a double room & bathroom downstairs. Two doubles & 1 single room upstairs, and 1 bathroom. Access to 1 of the doubles is only through the single room so this might only suit a couple with 2 children, or maybe 1-2 adult child(ren) & their parents. However, we did not find the accommodation to be a problem for 2 families consisting of 2 couples and 3 adult children. We enjoyed our stay and will return if the opportunity arises.
