Anthony and Sandy are English and bought the property 21yrs ago and have lovingly renovated this delightful tuffeau stone property to it's present state.

Sandy Hall purchased this farmhouse in 1992

Having visited this part of France many times, we fell in love with the area and were lucky to find this farmhouse to renovate.

We enjoy the tranquility of being in the pretty French countryside while being able to access charming towns like Angers and Saumur.

CHARMING GITE AND GREAT BASE FOR EXPLORING ANJOU

  • 5 of 5
My family of six stayed in the Granary for two weeks in July 2013 and loved it. La Seigneurie is set amid beautiful farmland in the countryside of Anjou. It is very quiet and peaceful; the only sounds you hear are the birds singing and the occasional distant hum of a tractor. We very quickly fell into a relaxing pastoral rhythm - leaving the "outside world" behind.

There is much to do in the area - exploring the many local chateaux, the cities of Saumur and Angers, the troglodyte dwellings, the Loire river itself. If you have children, there are nearby amusement parks as well. You can also relax in the pool at La Seigneurie, play games on the grounds (bocce, table tennis) and go for walks in the countryside.

The Granary easily accommodated the six of us. The entire property is well maintained, with modern conveniences, but still maintains the charm of a 350-year-old farmhouse. Antony and Sandy are delightful hosts. They will make you feel at home and will have many suggestions for things to do in the area. They are always available but they are not obtrusive.

There are laundry facilities on site and you can shop for groceries in Gennes or Doue la Fontaine, both of which are a short drive away

RUSTIC

  • 4 of 5
Nestled on the outskirts of a small hamlet surrounded by farms producing a variety of produce, the generous accommodation (The Granary) is dated but clean and spacious with a lovely rustic farm stay feel. The modern pool is set in a sunny position and can only be entered through a lockable door making it child safe. While the pool and BBQ area were shared with the (two) other (smaller) rental properties on site, at no time was their a feeling of overcrowding. In fact, we had the pool to ourselves each time we wished to use it. The Granary also benefits from a lovely outside seating area. Tony and Sandy are great hosts. Even though they were only next door, you don't really know they are there but were eager to provide advice and tips, when asked.

EXQUISITE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at La Seigneurie in the 2-bedroom Apartment, overlapping our stay with family who stayed in the Granary. Both places, and the grounds in general, are clean, well-maintained, and yet "typical"l; that is, the accommodations are modern, without sacrificing the charm and history of the structures.

Sandy and Antony are lovely hosts - friendly and helpful, but never obtrusive. We felt as if the entire grounds were ours. Enjoy the pool, the cookout grill, several outdoor eating areas, even the game room (table tennis).

The property is well situated for visiting the sites of both Anjou and Tourraine: within 30-40 minutes drive of Angers and Saumur,- each with so much to see and experience - Brissac, Montreuil-Bellay; Fontevraud, Montsoreau are about 60min, and a little farther (in the 90minute range) are Chinnon, Usse. Tours (and therefore Amboise, Chennonceau, Langeais, Vilandry,etc) is also 90min (autoroute) by car, or you can take the SNCF from Saumur (free parking!) and get there in less than an hour.

In early July, the sun sets about 22:50 and the sky is crystal clear at night. The surrounding countryside is peaceful, and the sunflower and poppy fields not to be missed!

I'm a runner and did not lack for variety of routes in the 5 - 18km range.

The town of Gennes - 9km away - has all your logistical needs with a Super U and gas station. Try kayaking on the Loire from Gennes, also with Canoes d'Anjou. Doue la Fontaine has a nice market on Mondays, and the Angers market is on Sundays.

France is very family-friendly with reduced or free admission to nearly all sites and modes of transportation for children under 18; visiting lots of chateaux and museums will not break the bank!

Highly recommended for the location in general and the specifics of La Seigneurie. Enjoy your stay!

A SUPERB VISIT TO THE FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE!

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted to find La Seineurie offering a spacious Gite in the
French Countryside near Saumur . . . a town we had previously visited.
After viewing the website www.loireholiday.net we reserved the
Granary for our 17 day stay. Having the second bedroom, each with
private bath on the second floor, allowed for comfort when we had
family join us for the first week of our visit. We grocery shopped
in the nearby town of Doue la Fountaine and prepared most of our meals
in the spacious country kitchen and enjoyed sitting in the garden
after dinner.

The location of La Seineurie is ideal for visiting nearby villages
including Angers, Montreuil-Bellay, Saumur and many of the historic
Chateaux that dot the countryside. We desired to be in the French
Countryside and were aware that not having French could present a
problem but our hosts and owners are from the UK and were very helpful
in advising us during our stay and after a few days we adjusted to not
having an Englsh speaking channel or the BBC on television.

We would highly recommend having a GPS . . . even though the roads are
well marked it helps to set your destination ahead of time and enjoy
the wonderful countryside! We traveled late September and returned
early October to the US . . . a perfect time in the Loire Valley. We
were there during the grape harvest, the apples were being harvested,
the corn fields were all golden with color and mild temperatures with
little rain, just one day after the next with blue skies. The only
difficulty we had was with email . . . WIFI locations are very
limited. Our hosts had WIFI but it was only available within their
residence and not available in the Granary. We would compose an
email on our IPAD and when it was convenient would sit at their table
and forward the email.

The website photographs are a true representation of this lovely
location in the Loire Valley . . . you won't be disappointed.
