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

Lovely stay at the Grange where Jean and Mike have really thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable s possible.

The setting is very secluded with beautiful surroundings. Its is possible to walk/cycle into the nearby village for bread etc.

The is a shared washing machine for use for a small charge and towels also cost extra.

The pool has a cover which make it useable in all weathers, handy when its raining - the kids don't care!

Absolutely amazing place to stay...the hosts, the setting, the property and the pool...all perfect. Lovely walk/cycle into the village where we found a delightful little shop and a bar cafe. Would thoroughly recommend, and would stay again.

10 / 10 The Saint Family 5 June, 2019

A great stay at The Grange! It is in a beautiful part of France - lots of castles, markets etc to explore. It is a comfortable, relaxing picturesque surroundings. The kids loved the pool and garden

The bedrooms are spacious and the cottage accommodated 5 of us (2 adults and 3 kids aged 9, 11 and 13 yrs) comfortably

Jean and Mike are friendly hosts and the welcome basket was much appreciated

We would all highly recommend it :)

Our third visit to this wonderful gite, owned by the welcoming Mike and Jean. We have stayed in the Grange which has its own garden, spacious bedrooms (loads of floor space which is useful in kids rooms), plenty of sofa space for the evenings, and incredible views. The pool is beautiful and clean with a cover over it and amazing views. We tried the ropes in trees at Rille which were brilliant, far better than similar equivalents in the UK due to the lovely lakeside location. A favourite place to eat is the Guingette at Lac Des Hommes. It feels like a home from home for us as we have a lovely welcome and there are all the facilities we need such as washing machine, bikes you can borrow for an hour for a quick ride to get bread etc. We wholly recommend!
