About this property

Is a Beautifully Restored 18th Century Farmhouse . This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

La Grange is a beautifully restored 18th century farmhouse. The building was originally constructed towards the end of the 1700s. It was made from the wonderful tuffeau stone that so often characterises properties in the Loire area. It has recently been restored to an exceptionally high standard indeed.The gîte is approached through its own private entranceway with automatic gates along a short stoned driveway.

There is a gravelled parking bay next to the gîte from which there is easy access. The western side of the building features its own private terraced area and garden. Beyond this is the children's play park which has a large sun-shelter and tables and chairs from which the beautiful evening sunsets can be viewed.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Judith Porter

My husband and I have been living in Allonnes for 13 years.

Year property purchased 2004
Why this location? It is so pretty and the people are very kind.
Unique benefits of property Les Volets Rouges comprises 2 beautifully restored gîtes, La Grange - 6/8 guests, that is wheelchair friendly and La Forge that accommodates 4 guests. These are set in the rolling countryside of the Loire valley near Saumur. While providing the tranquility of the countryside, the gîtes are nonetheless only 1 mile from the nearest small town, Allonnes, where there are 2 bread shops a couple of bars and, most importantly, a supermarket.
