Coquelicot Cottage is situated down a quiet country lane and is tucked away in its own corner of our 2 acre garden.
This French home is filled with charm and wonder. It has exposed beams throughout and an old bread oven, which shows off its originality.
You firstly step into the sun lounge where you can relax & enjoy the uninterrupted countryside views around you.
As you enter the cottage, there is a fully equipped, modernised kitchen with fridge freezer, dishwasher & oven.
There is a modern bathroom with a shower.
Upstairs is a charming double bedroom with exposed beams with lots of light and character. You have stunning views of the surrounding garden and fields from your window. You won't want to get out of bed in the morning!
The outside area overlooks fields beyond our garden. There's a patio set and BBQ so you can sit and relax, especially at the end of the day when you've been out exploring.
The added bonus is our pool that you are welcome to use so you can relax and cool down.
(The granary style stairs are fairly steep and would not be suitable for people with mobility problems).
There is open countryside all around, which means there is always lots of wildlife to hear and see. The summer brings such a great range of butterflies, birds and dragonflies to the garden.
We are a short drive away from the Loire River and its many stunning towns and villages, such as Saumur, Chinon, Bourgeuil, Montsoreau, Villandry, Chenonceau, Amboisem, Fontevraud Abbey - to name but a few - what an ideal location to explore one of the prettiest and most stunning parts of the world.

Our Fleur de Lys cottage has 2 bedrooms and can sleep up to 4 people (Owners Direct ref 8165976). Our Coquelicot Cottage has one bedroom and sleeps 2 people. We would be delighted if your party of 6 would like to visit at a reduced rate.

There are so many villages and country lanes to explore - either on foot or by bicycle or by car. We are close to La Flèche, Baugé, Saumur, Angers, Le Mans.
Don't forget the Le Mans 24 hour race in June and the Classic 24 hour in July. The Tour de France often passes nearby in July. The Classic Grand Prix car race in Puy De Notre Dame is a great spectacular also late July.
The vines are ripe for harvest some time late Sep/early Oct. If you like wine, you're in for a treat. All the vineyards will have free tastings (dégustations) so you can meet the owners, try before you buy and then bring your purchase back to enjoy back at your cottage. There is a wide choice if rosés, whites, reds and especially sparkling - we can point you in the right direction, especially for guided tours that show you the wine making process.
