|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.|
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.
