A traditionally built stone cottage, Bourgueil offers very comfortable and spacious accommodation for 4. It is perfectly placed for those who wish to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Loire countryside. The traditional design of this attached cottage means that, importantly, during the warm summer months, it remains beautifully cool for those afternoon siestas.
An open plan ground floor provides a lovely social area while also allowing for individual space and activities. The generous and attractive dining area, as well as the mod cons of a fully fitted kitchen, coupled with the pretty sitting room centred around a large logburner means that this gite offers all the comforts of a home from home. Two double bedrooms upstairs which have south facing velux windows, are spacious yet full of character with their original beamed ceilings. A wc / shower room is conveniently located central to the 2 bedrooms. All linen and towels are provided.
Outside, our large south facing courtyard means that all guests are able to enjoy their own private dining area while enjoying the sun at all times. In addition, guests have use of the 10 x 5 metre outdoor pool during the warmer months, as well as its large decking area and sunbeds.
Located in the peaceful countryside of the Loire Valley, central to the 2 villages of Parcay Les Pins and Vernoil-Le-Fourrier, Domaine Des Vignes is a very pretty property offering the peace and quiet of the woodland, but within 20 minutes of the historic Loire town of Saumur.

We moved here because we love France. We chose to offer holiday accommodation because we think that your holiday is the most important part of your year and we want you to enjoy being here as much as we do.

|Why this location?||We are part of a permanent community that lives and works in the area which means that many amenities and attractions are open all year round. We are perfectly placed to do and see so many things and still get back in time for a pleasant glass of chilled wine in the sun before supper.|
|Unique benefits of property||Peace and tranquillity within short reach of civilisation|
Saumur sits on the banks of the Loire river and is 20 minutes away. Wander round the chateau and then decide on lunch over a glass of chilled wine.
If you have an interest in history then this is one of the places to go. The resting place of Richard the Lionheart and Eleanor of Aquitaine in the amazing abbey, and a great bar and restaurant just outside the grounds called 'The Plantagenet'.
The most amazing gardens and a glorious chateau and, of course, plenty of options for lunch and possibly a small glass of wine!
A perfect gite - very spacious and really comfortable. Fully equipped with everything you would need for a holiday. The surroundings were pleasant and Nicky and Mike the ideal hosts - welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive. The pool and bedroom fans were appreciated in the hot weather, and we enjoyed playing boules and badminton in the garden.
The only flaw for us was the fact we ended up driving a bit further to local attractions than we'd hoped to - but that was probably our fault for not appreciating the scale of France!!
Absolutely lovely, from ease of booking to all communications with the owners. The gite is in a lovely setting and was just as described, in fact it exceeded our expectations. Thoroughly clean and well equipped throughout. The right level of privacy was afforded and having the pool literally just outside the front door was an absolute blessing. We would as a family thoroughly recommend this property and the hosts to anyone. We may be back.....
