About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Jean Brookes

I fell in love with France as a teenager and nothing has changed since then!

Year property purchased 1997
Why this location? Love the area, gentle rural countryside and views, proximity to historic towns of Angers, Le Mans and Tours.
Unique benefits of property Peace, rural peace. Three properties, none of which overlook each other and offer privacy and country views. A gorgeous 12 metre swimming pool, with full height pool cover and seating area around it. Heated and spotless.

The Owner Recommends

Chateaux with Exceptional Gardens

Don’t miss Chateau de-la-Chatonniere, Chateau Rivau and – wacky – new gardens at Parc Monpassant-de-Bois in Allonnes – comes with golf carts for driving around in!

Fontevraud - a Special Treat

Recommendation No 1 can only be the La Licorne Restaurant at Fontevraud – the langoustines are amazing!

Gourmet Market

An excellent evening market. A leisurely walk around the stalls in the evening, local wines and delicacies, music and entertainment. The gourmet market in Bourgueil is a good evening out!

Langeais Sunday Market

A very lively market each Sunday morning, situated just by the chateau. Fish, meat, organic vegetables and more!

Location and activities

Relaxing environment, swimming, cycling, walking, chateau and garden visits. Midway between Angers, Tours and Le Mans.

Lunch, Shopping and Wine - a Visitor's Experience

The best. Lunch at L’Orangerie in Saumur Château grounds and after a day in the life of a gite owner buying supplies and testing the wines of Guy Delanoue – superb!

Mouthwatering Restaurants

Restaurant musts – The Moulin Bleu just outside Bourgueil – 10/10. The brochet (pike) was amazing. Les Forges and the Auberge in Place St Pierre both worth a visit and we'd recommend the three cheese gallette at the Rille Lac Crepe.

Nearest restaurant

Several good restaurants within easy reach with a good variety of price ranges.

Recommendations from a 7 year old

And I recommend Doue Zoo, feeding those donkeys, the lake at Rille and Villandry and that’s my recommendation for all you holiday people

We really enjoyed our stay. It was like home from home with everything we needed (even English TV!). It's set in stunning countryside within a short walk to the local village to buy essentials. Perfect relaxation, yet a short drive away from the towns and attractions.
Jean and Mike are really friendly and welcoming, - we will definitely be returning.
