Spacious, comfortable, well appointed and central apartment

Date of Stay : 22 April 2016

We very much liked this one bed apartment because it was furnished for more than two - nice to have a bit of space and a choice of comfy chair. The kitchen had a great range of cookware and all the alliances we needed, the dining room a fine selection of wine glasses and dining plates. Add to this that the market starts just across the street so wonderful fresh ingredients are easy to find and we were very happy eating in most meals. With its central location, eating out when we did was also tempting and a pleasure, everywhere accessible on foot. Free parking was sometimes available nearby, always available a short walk away but we also used the underground car park opposite (just €2.80 overnight from 6pm to 11am). The flat also has a dvd player and decent screen so we watched a few of our videos. Places to visit in and around Saumur are too many to mention, and there are good way marked walks in many locations when chateau'ed out. All in all a fabulous base for an energetic or relaxed time.
