Les Rigaudieres, Nr Ancenis, Loire Atlantique

  • 4 of 5

25 July to 8 August 2015. Holiday for 3 generations - 4 adults and 3 children under 10. A perfect place, with character and space, inside and out. Wonderful to be in a properly and elegantly equipped home, to have the extensive gardens and woodland to wander in, and to be secluded in a delightful setting.

The house was beautifully clean inside and everything was tidy outside, with the stables, pavilion and glasshouse showing their age with great charm. The garden with its wonderful old trees is a special place.The swimming pool was excellent but needs sun to stay warm. We had good verbal and written briefs, a little trouble over internet and telephone connections which were quickly sorted by owners.

I would happily return and recommend to others.

Ancenis is easily reached by car in 15 minutes, with market, shops and restaurants, plus access to cycle route along the Loire. Even closer (5 minutes drive) in Mesanger is an excellent Express small supermarket which had everything.

We were seen in and out by the owners who could not have been more helpful. We really enjoyed our holiday in their country home.

"Vacances très agréables ...

  • 5 of 5

"Vacances très agréables et reposantes dans cette somptueuse propriété plantée de grands arbres centenaires.La maison est propre et spacieuse, meublée avec goût et décorée de mille objets d''art, tels gravures, sculptures, peintures... Propriétaires charmants et très compréhensifs (notre fils ayant cassé un joli coquillage sculpté, ils ne nous en ont pas tenu rigueur !). Seul bémol, la cuisine est un peu vieillotte, mais celà fait aussi le charme de cette très belle maison de famille ! Le plus, un jardin potager, ainsi qu''un verger mis à disposition, nous nous sommes régalés de tomates,prunes et raisin ! A recommander à tous les amoureux des belles pierres et des beaux objets !"

A Ancenis Thursday morning market, including a large selection of fish and seafood. In the main street, excellent meat M. Ménard; good bakery opposite.

Must Do: delicatessen Bournigault (opposite the Super U), whose cellar above all, is one of the most famous in France.

Super U and Leclerc Centre

A Mésanger, small supermarket U. The bakery is also excellent: little balls are perfect and exquisite Préfou (Vendée specialty to order and definitely try an appetizer).


Good fish restaurants and grills on the banks of the Loire.


Muscadet, Malvasia, Coteaux d'Ancenis, Anjou, Coteaux du Layon ... Great selection and good advice at the 'Maison des Vins', the cooperative 'the Noelle' and for 'Bournigault'.


- Museum Joachim du Bellay to Read.

- Castles: Nantes, Angers, Serrant, Montgeoffroy.

- Sports: golf, horse riding, road 'Loire by bike'.

- Balloon on the banks of the Loire.

- The Ocean is an hour's drive.
