The cottage has many facilities for you on site including the private pool, badminton, boules and large garden. Of course you can just relax and catch up with your reading on one of the sun loungers but if you can tear yourself away there’s a huge variety of things to do in the local area.

Leisure Lakes

Several local lakes and rivers offer swimming, fishing, sailing, archery, watersides, canoeing, windsurfing, and jet skiing.One of the biggest and best is at Marcon. An enjoyable day out and a great place for the kids only 5 minutes away.


A great way to burn off those calories, cycle hire is available at several places, the nearest being Chateau du Loir. Or you could take advantage of a planned route on a bicycle trail. Of course you’re welcome to bring your own bikes, there’s plenty of storage .


There are the famous Loire vineyards of Montlouis, Chinon, Amboise and others offering wine tastings.


It is 10 minutes to stables offering

tacking by the hour or day. Racing and trekking make a memorable day out. As does the national riding school’s displays at Saumur.


Indulge your passion! There are

many beautiful golf courses only

30 to 60 minutes drive away.

Fabulous home from home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house everything you need a real home from home feel. Lots of space. Weather was lovely so made good use of the pool. Loved watching the lizards roaming around. Watched the farmers cut down the corn field to. Lovely rural peaceful location but within driving distance of supermarkets and places of interest. Would definateley recommend.

Beautiful quaint cottage, with everything and more that you need

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very clean on arrival and had everything and more for our holiday. Owners were available if we needed anything but also left us alone to enjoy our stay. Some very thoughtful touches such as wine left for us and pool toy given for child. Location very good for area with plenty to do , a couple of the fantastic lake beaches close by as well as some amazing chateaux. A cottage I would highly recommend.

Perfect for a Rural French Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Everything is clean and well maintained. The cottage has lots of character and charm and the pool is a good size. The owners were very kind, helpful and kept in good communication.

I would highly reccomend this property, both families and couples can enjoy.

Close by there is a really good leaisure lake, the activities are reasonably priced. There is a huge forest 5 mins away which is quite impressive in scale and density. Plus there are many small villages/towns all around that are very beautiful and quaint. You can also get to places further away very easily, like Tours, Le Mans and all the different Chateau's.

Great place to relax and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautifully restored farm building, keeping many of the the original features. There was plenty of storage space, everything provided that you could wish: towels, soap, cleaning products even tin foil & cling film. We enjoyed the tranquil location and the pool during the hot weather. There were lovely forest walks and the sleepy villages were just a short cycle ride away. It has been one of the comfiest, cleanest places that we have stayed in. Tourist attractions were a little bit of a drive away. Ambois was well worth the drive. We visited Le Parc Leonardo da Vinci which was fascinating.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. This was a great place to get away from it all.
