About Teresa Brooks

My husband and I moved to this beautiful region of France after enjoying many lovely holidays in this area of the Loire Valley.This is our semi retirement from the very busy lives we led in the UK. We now have the space and time to enjoy growing our own vegetables, gardening, keeping a few chickens and enjoying our hobbies. We now have a different lifestlye away from the hustle and bustle of modern living, a step back in time.

This will be our second season in France after a very pleasant and relaxing first year.

Teresa Brooks purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Teresa Brooks chose Maine-et-Loire

We chose to move to this area,as with its great local amenities it ticked all the boxes. Being close to the Loire River with a direct, uncomplicated drive from all of the cross channel ferry ports .La Cordonniere is the perfect location for touring the many magnificent chateaux and attractions of the Loire valley.

Our propery itself is just outside the market town of Noyant but in a rural setting with no immediate nieghbours.Our home is a converted barn in two acres of ground and your gite is the original independant cottage in the same grounds, close to us but with its own exclusively private garden and pool.

What makes this cottage unique

Our grounds offer the space and peace of rural living.

The gite is an icon of times gone by, very atmospheric and beautiful, The cottage originally two properties now converted into one dwelling makes for a very spacious living accomadation, With its thick tuffeu stone walls the house lives and breathes of days gone by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic cottage and pool, lovely location and super hosts

  • 5 of 5

This gite was a fantastic end to our French holiday. Our children loved the pool and the garden toys, our littlest learnt to swim within a day of getting there. Teresa and Roy were fantastic hosts and the welcome pack was a real treat, especially Teresa's peach jam. The cottage was a great base for sightseeing along the Loire which was only half and hour away. The cottage had real character and everything we needed, I would thoroughly recommend it for a relaxing week.

Lovely Gite and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome from hosts Roy and Teresa, the gite has a lovely private garden, with bbq, pool, loads of toys for kids - our two girls loved it! A nice welcome package provided by hosts on arrival, who were available when needed for advice, and took plenty of time introducing the girls to Toby the dog, and helping them collect eggs from the chickens. The gite and adjacent buildings are very traditional giving a real sense of history. The weather was very warm for our stay but can imagine the two log burners in the gite would make it very cosy in cooler months. The local area offers some great opportunity for exploring with nearby swimming lakes, local markets etc. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovey review and we are really glad you enjoyed your Holiday. it is really lovely for the children to enjoy the garden and pool, and for the parents who don't have to go out to entertain the children if they just want to relax themselves. A Holiday to do as much or as little as you want to.

Quaint and quiet cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Teresa and Roy's property. They were extremely helpful and checked in on us regularly to make sure we didn't need anything. The cottage itself was exactly what we were looking for in the country. We were able to visit all of the chateaux we wanted to see and, thanks to our hosts' suggestions, able to see some places we had not heard of. Highly recommended!

Good for all

  • 5 of 5

We visited as a couple and only used the downstairs bedroom and shower but this cottage would be great for families as previous reviewers have said. Teresa and Roy were good hosts and the cottage facilities were first class. As my other half is a non flier we have, over the years, rented many places throughout France and Les Rosiers rates as one of the best, especially with respect to the dealings with the owners both during the booking process and the stay. When we first started renting in France we both worked so self catering was not part of the plan exceot for breakfasts and some lunches and we ate out in the evenings. Now in our seventies, well in in my case, we still eat out and we found good places to eat within reasonable distances. We left details with Teresa and Roy who are going to include them in the excellent folder of local information that they have provided. One last point not mentioned in previous reviews ia the very good wifi connection.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your outstanding review. We are very pleased you enjoyed yourselves and loved the Loire Valley. The families that do stay love our garden and pool, there is so much room for them to play and relax. Our cottage is well equipped for extended families, so grandparents can enjoy a holiday with their children and grandchildren. With local beaches and horse riding available (Fourier Vernoil) at nearby Vernoil, this area has attractions for all ages. You can have a relaxing time or a very active holiday in the local area.

Perfect for a small, young family

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is perfectly set up for young families. Everything we needed was at our disposal from minute one - travel cot, high chair, potties, the works. This really makes a difference when travelling with a young child. A fire was burning on arrival, and a hot meal was made available after our long drive. I would also add that the living space is larger than it appears in the photos. The garden is perfect as well for children given the pool, tent, and many many toys! The hosting was also exceptional, and Teresa and Roy were always at our disposal to help with anything. The biggest shame was the weather, which is of course uncontrollable but something to consider when determining when to visit. I would also note that the attractions, e.g. chateaux and things to do for children are all at least a 30-40 min drive away so you need to be prepared to spend some time in the car. My only suggestion for improvement would be a few pairs of slippers to keep feet warm on a chilly evening! All the best.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We do try to cater for all age groups of children to ensure parents can have a relaxing time. There is a lot to do and see in this area of the Loire valley, for the adults there are plenty of vineyards (tried and tested), as well as the many beautiful castles . For the more active there is a very good riding school 15 minutes away, also cycling along the Loire valley, canoeing, and boat rides. The nearest man made beach is 15 minutes away from us at Chateaux De Valliere, Also the park and smaller beach at Rille with the steam train is lovely for a picnic in the summer The larger man made beach at La Fleche, 30 minutes drive is superb for all ages of children, especially as there is a section for toddlers and is very safe, you also have he big Leclerc supermarket close by, if you should need any shopping on the way home. There are also adventure parks around for older children. Holly Park at Bauge is great for under 12 years. A car is essential as is good weather. Best wishes Teresa

Lovely holiday in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our week. Location is excellent and we did lots of exploring of the Loire Valley. Accommodation has everything you need - including log fires if you're chilly which we did use. Garden in particular is excellent especially with a young family. Owners were very friendly and helpful.

Wishing you all best Teresa

Being just one mile from the attractive market town of Noyant, the gite of La Cordonniere is perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding area and discovering the secrets of the Loire Valley. We are located just 30 km north of Saumur in the triangle formed by Saumur, Tours and Le Mans and perfectly situated for you to visit the many Châteaux of the Loire Valley. The woodland walks, along with the scenic views, picnic areas, man made beaches, wine caves, Zoo's, villages of charm are all easily accessible. The beautiful Chateau town of Saumur which stands on the banks of the Loire River is well worth a visit. Shops and Cafe's are to be found in abundance along with Museums and the world famous Calvalry School. A 40 minute drive north is the famous race track of Le Mans, with its medieval town. Angers is also 40 minutes west where you can see the Apocalypse Tapestry in the famous Castle. You will never have enough time to explore all the attractions of the stunning Loire Valley!
