lovely secluded location. Close enough to the delightful little town of Segre or a 45 minute drive to Saumur, 30 mins to Angers and a lovely little 15 min drive to Chateau Gontier. The property is well stocked , think BBQ, wine opener, can opener, fridge freezer, candles , etc...in a well stocked kitchen. Lovely design , practical with 2 double beds and 2 single beds. Upstairs bathroom was fantastic for water pressure and a bath as well. Beds are very comfortable. downstairs TV but more importantly the garden - just incredible. It felt like a Secret Garden or something from a Lewis Carroll novel. I would like to thank Ghislaine for her fantastic hospitaltiy.
We rented just the Manoir building and enjoyed the use of a large living room and kitchen and 4 of the 5 bedrooms (we didn't use the dormitory 8 bedded room). The swimming pool was lovely and warm and in a good setting with a lockable access so it was secure from our children. The bathrooms had good showers and plenty of hot water. The kitchen had plenty of equipment. Outside we used the table tennis and BBQ and the 2 swings in the garden. There were plenty of sun loungers by the pool and we found 2 noodles and a ball to play with in the swimming pool. The pool had a cover to keep it warm. There were pretty flowers around the Manoir and a vine. We picked lots of blackberries around the edge of the large green space.
We enjoyed looking at the activity on the neighbouring farm where there was a herd of cows and 2 tractors. We watched the cattle being fed and moved and the adjacent field being ploughed. The driveway and garden were not fully fenced or gated from the farm and road.
The house was not far from many pretty villages and towns. There were no shops or restaurants in the village. We drove out each day to markets, shops and riverside views. We got roast chicken pre ordered from a campsite cafe/shop just a few km along the river.
Our outings to the Robert Tatin museum, the Refuge de l'arche (like a zoo) and river beach on the Loire were enjoyed by the whole family.
