Delightful gite set in the extensive grounds of the owners house.
I guess downstairs would be described as rustic (done to a high standard and very comfortable) with upstairs modern and very tastefully furnished.
Excellent location for exploring this part of the Loire Valley and given the almost complete lack of traffic (particularly on the D roads), the major towns and smaller interesting villages are within easy reach.
The owner, Steve, gave us recommendations for visits tailored to our preferences and without fail they were spot-on.
Although they are a short car drive away, the nearest supermarkets are big enough to avoid having to go to the nearest major town, Saumur, for provisions (although this is only a leisurely 30 minute drive).
Can't recommend it enough and if we're in the region again, it will be top of our list to stay.
In fact I enjoyed it so much I'll be recommending it to the fellow members of the BMW Motorcycle Owners Club.
Our sincere thanks to the owners, Steve and Tina for making our stay so pleasant and memorable.

We spent a lovely week at the Moulin de Rabion Gite. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Everything we needed was there including high quality bed linen, towels and bathrobes. A well fitted kitchen, comfy sofas and Sky TV. Oh and a magnificent en suite with copper bath and good shower room.
The private drive and outside area meant we weren't overlooked and could come and go as we pleased. Lots of grounds to explore including a working water wheel and millpond with coypu, herons and other wildlife to watch. Steve and Tina have donkeys, a goat, chickens, cats and a dog too. Friendly hosts, they were there if we needed them, but were happy to leave us to get on with our week - providing a welcome pack with milk, biscuits a bottle of fizz etc. An easy drive to the local village for a baker and a supermarket and not far to places like Langeais where there was a good market.
We had a relaxing stay - a bit of road noise, but as the property is set back from the road it wasn't too much of an issue. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Stayed in the gite for one week in February and it was a delight. The gite was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed making our stay very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable as well and we slept well. Perfect place for two. We found the gite well positioned for exploring the area. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would stay again if we go back to this area. Tina and Steve were good hosts and happy to give recommendations of places to visit.

Owner response
