It stands on a slight rise in tranquil surroundings of fields and woods, near the market towns of Saumur and Bourgueil.

It has been beautifully and sympathetically restored in local white stone "tuffeau".

We are Penny & Peter an English couple who have been letting our place to guests for the last 10 years. We understand how important it is to have a sense of your own space to relax in and our place is a" home away from home". We have slowly been retiring into French life with renovation projects to keep us busy. We enjoy discovering new things and places out here, be it a new market or a great bottle of wine. We invite you make yourself at home, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, whether that is lounging by the pool or getting out to a few castles and neighbouring towns.
