TREYVES, is a family house, located in the Loir Valley in Anjou, near Angers and the castles of the Loire dominating an exceptional natural site in the wild nature of the low Angevin valleys. The name of Treyves is very old probably coming from the Latin which designated the crossroads.
The property is composed of a main house of the 30s Art Deco style, and a pretty old habitable pavilion nestled along the river. A haven of peace combining the comfort of a pleasant house with the sweetness of a perfectly maintained garden. At the border of a natural and wild environment, it allows the amateurs, the observation of a rich and discreet avifaune.
The house was built on the slope of the Loir on an old site, hollowed out of cellars; in the limestone of the marl shell. An old stream dug by the monks of the Chalosse Abbey in medieval times still crosses the property. It once fed mills, then more recently a decorative waterfall. There are still some vestiges of this bygone era: a basin and its old valve. The cellars and the greenhouse are currently inaccessible for security reasons, a rehabilitation project is planned.
A very large terrace overlooks a flower garden of 2500m2 whose access is via stairs. The Loir is accessible directly by a private pontoon canoe and fishing are practiced in summer. We bathe there from then different generations. It offers the opportunity to discover the remarkable site of the Loop Loir, mills and weirs and its wildlife.

Each of the lounges serves the large terrace furnished with benches, a breakfast table and a plancha. It is good to admire the setting sun while tasting the Angevin specialties. (We just redone the paintings and the parquet in the living-dining room in February 2019.)
