|Bella Vista Studio Apartment||Self Catering||Flexible||1||2||1|
This apartment is situated on the first floor and has a balcony with direct access staircase overlooking lovely countryside. The view is stunning and the sun sets on the south west facing balcony, where you have a small table and 2 chairs to enable you to watch the sunset whilst enjoying a glass or two of loire wine.
The studio itself is well equiped with its own shower room, kitchenette, comfy sofa, large double bed and satellite tv. It is situated on the edge of a village, only 1.5 kms to the main route to Saumur (which is 22 mins away by car). It is ideally located to enable guests to visit the local Loire Chateaux, vineyards, lakes, forests and idyllic small villages along the two river valleys.
There are plenty of local markets to visit, plenty of walking and cycling routes and a haven for wildlife. There are golf courses at Bauge (18km) and Saumur (30km) plus a lovely sandy beach lake at La Fleche (32kms). There are outdoor pools at Noyant 5 kms and Bauge 18kms, plus indoor pool at La Fleche.
Terra Botanica is to be found at Angers about 1 hours drive, which is an amazing park with beautiful flower gardens, rides, greenhouses and rose gardens that can be visited by the slow moving boats - a wonderful day out for all the family. Le Mans is about 1 hour away, so you can visit the motor racing circuit and museum or enjoy the old city and its shops. There is always something to do in this beautiful part of France.
The kitchenette is fully equipped with crockery and cutlery along with electric cooker, calor gas hob and extractor, a good fridge-freezer, microwave and Dolce Gusto coffee-machine. Alongside the kitchen is a comfortable dining table with 2 chairs, plus of course the table and chairs on the balcony for al fresco dining.
The living space has a comfy sofa with a view to the satellite tv and a drinks table beside it for the necessary glass of wine or beer.
The bedroom area houses a very large 6ft x 6ft double bed and 2 bedside tables, with lamps. There is a large chest of drawers for clothing and space for hanging clothes. It is a very bright and cheery room
There is a shower room with large shower, toilet (mains drainage) and basin with mirror over. A sliding door gives access from the studio.
There is central heating plus blown air heat from our woodburner insert, for the very cold winter evenings.

What a find this is, my wife and I love touring the area by motorcycle. It is nice to find a room that has so many facilities and nice little touches like spare towels for pool use. The pool is heated with beautiful views acroos the valley, it was 24-26C while we were there.
The advert description was accurate and the pictures are true to the site.
The owners are so thoughtful, we had heavy rain on one ride (even in France, at least the rain was warm), they were waiting and offered to dry our clothing for us. We had already dried out but still a nice touch.
Breakfast on the balcony is relaxing but watching the sunset with a glass or two of wine is even better.
Lunch, at La Gare just 3km down the road is typical French and good value. The local Super U at Vernoil provides all your food requirements and fuel station (about 10km). This year there is a patio area under the balcony, its great for the afternoon and evening sun and watching your partner cook on the gas barbecue. Always funny after a few drinks. When dark a bit of English TV then sink into that bed.
To see all the Chateaux in one go, try Le Parc des Mini Chateaux near Amboise (about 90km), over 40 models in one place, you can choose which of the real ones to visit. The local one, Saumur is just 32km away and the French roads are a delight for bikes.
Great hosts, lovely accommodation and so much to see in the area.
Would we recommend this property, well we have already booked for next year.
Thank you so much Sarah & Kevin, we are very flattered and pleased that you continue to enjoy our little piece of the Loire Valley. It has been a pleasure to meet you each year and now after so many years you are more friends than customers. We have enjoyed your company over a couple of dinners, where I think we have tried to put the world to rights!!! Look forward to welcoming you both once again in 2020.
