About the Owner/Advertiser, Doctor Sze Inn Fiona Seow

We are a couple in our early 40s. Hubby is in investment banking while I am a stay at home wife. We have been moving around as an expat couple from London to Hong Kong to Singapore then we returned to London for 3 years. Now we have moved again back to Hong Kong. We travel a lot especially with our two Golden Retrievers.

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? We love the Loire Valley. We visited this area for the first time in 2013, saw this property and fell in love with it. There is so much to do on our doorstep, from chateaux, to interesting museums (tank, mushroom!), fabulous restaurants, vineyards, fishing lake. Despite being in a rural location, we are in a little hamlet, far enough from the road to not have any road noise, but only 300m drive to the main D roads that lead us to Saumur which is less than 30 minutes away where you will find everything. We are also 8km away from the nearest town where your amenities are and yet a short walk to a hidden popular local restaurant with a meal only sets you back 15 euros.
Unique benefits of property As mentioned previously, we are well located for all the fabulous sights and attractions on our doorstep. No detouring down little countryroads, we are just off the D767, but yet rural enough to have peace and quiet should you want it. The property itself has enough for you to do if you choose not to venture out. There is a games barn, wine cave, boules court and a swimming pool.

The Owner Recommends

Saumur

Our favourite citiy located on 30 mins drive south of La Coyere. She has everything to offer, from several chateau, fantastic views and vistas, fabulous restaurants, a lively market and the list goes on. It is a must visit for any guests staying with us.
