|Year property purchased||2007|
|Why this location?||We're close to the channel ports if we want to nip back to the UK, but far enough away to get much better weather, wine and space!|
|Unique benefits of property||What strikes our guests most when they stay here is the large size of the property and the peace and tranquility. Even those who normally find it hard to relax find themselves unwinding within a few hours!
Given that we run cycling holidays here you can take advantage of our expertise and equipment to turn your self-catered holiday into a family cycling holiday!
Our main business is running cycling holidays in the Loire Valley. So with a rental of Le Noyer comes the opportunity to rent bikes from us and make the most of our expertise on local cycle routes in the area. We are surrounded by quiet country lanes and tracks - the perfect place to enjoy some family cycling!
The property is perfectly placed for some of the most famous Chateaux in the Loire Valley. Choose from Villandry with its magnificent gardens, Rigny-Ussé the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty, Azay le Rideau resting in the middle of a dreamy lake, medieval Langeais with its turrets and battlements, Chinon and its connections with Joan of Arc. Within five minutes are the smaller chateaux of Gizeux and Lathan - still lived in by ancestral owners and unique.
A leisure lake ten minutes from the property offering water-skiing, Go-Ape forest zip wires and tree climbs, a crazy golf course, playground, steam railway and bar/restaurant. Possible to cycle to the lake on back roads and forest tracks and the perfect place to spend an entire day on out door activities.
25 mins from the property is the beautiful town of Saumur on the banks of the Loire river. Visit the chateau, take a boat trip along the Loire, check out the wineries and underground champagne caves, see the biggest collection of tanks in Europe at the tank musem, do a tasting at the Combier distillery (home of the original Cointreau), see the Cadre Noir & French national riding school (the French version of the Spanish riding school in Vienna), explore the underground mushroom caves. A lovely town, undiscovered by the big tourist companies but visited again and again by those in the know!
Ten minutes away is the complex of lakes at Hommes. In July and August enjoy a meal and drink watching the kids play on the inflatable assault course floating on the lake! There are outdoor BBQ stands, children's play areas, boule pitches and various walks and cycles around the lakes and through the nearby woods. A great place to spend an afternoon.
A theme park devoted to plants and the natural world, located 50 minutes from the property on the edge of Angers. A great theme park mixing the enjoyment of nature with rides, carousels and 4d cinema.
A park packed full of rides and attractions (including a water park) 50 minutes from the property on the edge of Le Mans. Perfect for children from 4 up to the age of 15 with rides for all ages.
