Perfectly located for a visit to Centre Parc Bois aux Daims, Bioparc Doue la Fontaine zoo or St Benoir tree park for family outings but also very close to the wonderful Abbaye de Fontevraud, Chateau de Breze or Musee des Blindes for very interesting historical visits.
This picturesque house historically was home to the winemakers for the Chateau, and is situated in its grounds surrounded by vineyards in the beautiful Loire countryside. It is approached by a sweeping alleyway bordered by mature plane trees.
The house is very private and peaceful and is perfect for a holiday exploring this fascinating region of France, Rural yet close enough to the village of Breze where you can find your all-important boulangerie to buy your morning baguettes and croissants, a mini-supermarket for food essentials, a pharmacie, a bar and even a chateau well-worth a visit.
Venturing a bit further afield the larger town of Saumur is only 20 minutes away and has an abundance of interesting shops and wonderful restaurants. A stroll through the Saturday morning market is a must followed perhaps by lunch at the rowdy Bistrot de la Place.
Montsoreau, a short 10 minute drive away, is a wonderful place along the river Loire to enjoy a glass or two. One Sunday a month they also hold the very popular antiques market beside the river.
Perfect for families and groups of friends there is so much to do in the region, from kayaking on the Loire, Centre Parcs, Doue la Fontaine zoo, go-karts, horse-riding and tree top trails at St Benoit to amuse the kids, to chateau visits, wine-tastings, hiking, boat trips, many unusual museums such as the mushroom museum for the adults. There are some lovely walks ( or cycle rides ) from the house through the local vineyards and villages
The house can sleep up to 9 people and there is plenty of space to relax inside and out after a days site-seeing. There is a large sitting room as well as a smaller TV room ( English and French cable TV ) . The spacious eat-in kitchen is well-equipped and leads out to a large courtyard and a lawned area where you can sit and enjoy tasting the local Saumur wines and gastronomic discoveries or cooking al fresco on the BBQ.
We will include a bottle each of Sauvignon Blanc and Cremant from our cellars for our guests and if you would like them you will be able to buy more.
We look forward to welcoming you.
