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.
Downstairs, there is a kitchen/diner and a large sitting room with UK freesat television. There is wi-fi throughout the gîte and there are USB charging points within the property. The whole of the ground floor of La Grange has been specially designed to be wheelchair-friendly and has widened doors and is all on the same level.
The kitchen is fitted out with oak units and has oven, microwave, a five burner hob and fridge. It also has a complete range of kitchen utensils. We hope to encourage you to experiment a little with the wonderful produce found in the excellent local markets that take place weekly in Borgueil, Saumur and Montsoreau.
The sitting room has frenchdoors that open onto the private terrace and bbq area with superb westerly views. The other window looks onto the large heated pool.
From the sitting area you pass though a small hallway into the master bedroom. This boasts a king sized bed and its own walk in en suite shower-room/wc.
Upstairs there are 2 twin rooms 1 with a shower/bath/wc and the other with a shower/wc. One overlooks the pool while the other has views over the surrounding landscape.

|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.|
