Overview

Saumur Boat Rental Photos and Description

♥BOAT OR VILLA: 2 amazing self-catering holiday rentals in front of the castle♥

Two self-catering rentals to be lived on ' different' concept: the LOIRE ROMANCE a traditional river boat and the VILLA de LOIRE a very beautiful apartment in a big villa at the river’s edge.

Two living environments different from the everyday life and routine located just in heart of the chic island of Offard in Saumur. A dream to come with the closeness of the water, the beautiful view, the quiet place and the romantic decoration.

For the boat the LOIRE ROMANCE we favored the massive wood for the esthetics and the comfort and in an ecological concern. We deliberately aimed at a high standard of the equipment and the comfort on board. The bedding, the kitchen equipments and the separate toilets. Tap water on board from the city. A footbridge allows a safe access on board . The boat LOIRE ROMANCE can accommodate 6 guests on board.

The VILLA de LOIRE is a very beautiful independent apartment on the first floor of a big villa of the beginning of XIXth century in a private park which offers an amazing view on the Loire and castle and restful side park. The VILLA de LOIRE distinguishes itself by one aestheticism allying the traditional and the contemporary. Canopy bed in the main bedroom and trendy decoration. The Loire so close inspires the decoration. The garden is an invitation to travel with its huge cedar of Lebanon and the palm grove and huge bamboo. You will appreciate the calm of this place.

Both holiday cottages can be rented simultaneously offering an accommodation for 11 people (6 gests on the boat the LOIRE ROMANCE and 5 guests on the apartment the VILLA DE LOIRE) either separately according to the availability.

The location just on the island d'Offard in the heart of Saumur is very well situated: You can walk from here to the bars and restaurants, to the very French open air markets of Thursday and Saturday morning. What about very fresh oyster from Noirmoutiers, strawberries, French beans or asparaguses of the sands of the Loire just picked by the day before. And the sparkling wine red rosé or white. The cream of the fine bubbles of Saumur.

Details for ♥ BOAT LOIRE ROMANCE ♥ THE LUXURY OF MAGIC NIGHTS ON BOARD .......... 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 1 Half Bathrooms

Beutiful boat on the Loire offering a grand panorama in front of Castle of Saumur.

We deliberately aimed at a high standard of the equipment and the comfort on board. The bedding, the kitchen equipments and the separate toilets. Tap water on board from the city.

When the river is high a footbridge allows a safe access on board directly from the quay and when the river is low , due to sandbanks the boat lis placed few meters far away. Then the access is by rawingboat.

About ARMELLE Sarl DIFFERENT HOLIDAYS

Hello,

Thank you for your interest for our holidays rentals to be lived on a 'different' concept. I am Armelle, a manager of the Sarl Different Holidays. I like creating spaces to be lived different from the every day life associating the dream, (traditional river boats, villa at the edge of the river, and soon floating summer-house.) I like the nearness of the water, the heat of materials and a romantic decoration. And so I rent a massive wooden big ' toue ' on the Loire: the Loire Romance, a very beautiful apartment in a big villa locted just in front of the Loire the ' Loire Elegance ' but also a Dutch barge of 1897 in Paris: the Seine Elegance.

Peaceful, superb views, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Armelle and Georges (and their chien Gork) were wonderful hosts. The landslide home is beautiful and peaceful-well appointed. Superb views of the river and short walk to the city centre for self catering. Walking/jogging areas and tranquility/quiet. The houseboat is excellent-fully equipped, rustic wood work, and beautiful sunsets. Merci beaucoup!

Ein besonderes Ferienerlebnis!

  • 5 of 5

In der Tat ein besonderes Erlebnis im liebevoll und schön eingerichtetem Hausboot. Das Panorama auf Stadt und Brücke inklusive herrlicher Sonnenuntergänge ist einzigartig. Herzliche Begrüßung durch die Vermieter.

Kurze Wege in die Altstadt und zum Bäcker.

Saumur ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für die Erkundung diverser Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Rundherum ein gelungener Urlaub!

Die Angaben im Online Inserat sind zutreffend.

Très confortable, un vrai cocon

  • 5 of 5

En plein hiver le bateau est très confortable. On est comme dans un chalet bien isolé. C'est chauffé comme dans un cocon et avec un petit de 4 ans c'était important. On va revenir pour le mois d'Aout . La Loire sera bien différente et on pourra mieux profiter de la terrasse bien que pour l'hiver elle est protégée du vent et on avait pu déjeuner dehors au soleil. On adore ce bateau!

Traumhaft schön!

  • 5 of 5

Die Fotos versprechen wirklich nicht zu viel - wir haben ganz ähnliche Aufnahmen vor Ort gemacht. Das Hausboot ist ein traumhaft schöner Ort zum Entspannen und es sich gut gehen lassen. Egal ob es der wunderbare Blick bei den Mahlzeiten "von Deck" rüber zum Schloss ist oder der Sonnenuntergang, den man vom Schlafzimmer aus bewundern kann - der Aufenthalt ist wirklich sehr, sehr schön. Genügend Platz ist auf jeden Fall für vier Personen (2 Erwachene und 2 Kinder). Die Einrichtung ist sehr neu, gepflegt und luxuriös. Das Boot liegt direkt am Ufer in einer Reihe mit einigen anderen (Fischer-)Booten und ist über einen neuen Metallsteg erreichbar - das ist auf den Fotos noch anders. Da die Loire so ruhig fließt, schaukelt das Hausboot so gut wie gar nicht. Ab und zu kommen Fischer oder Kanu-Fahrer vorbei und man kann sich zuwinken. Ansonsten genießt man die ganz besondere Atmosphäre an Bord.

Saumur ist ein wunderschönes kleines Städtchen, in das man zu Fuß in 5 Minuten gelangt. Achtung: Anfang August ist an zwei Abenden ein großes Fest in Saumur. Dann wird es laut. Am Besten: Mitfeiern!

Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert ist eine Kanu-Tour auf der Loire. Der Kanu-Verleih ist auf der Insel ca. 10-15 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt. Bäcker, Metzger und einen kleinen Lebensmittelladen finden man ebenfalls auf der Insel.

Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war sehr nett und wir konnten alle Fragen schnell und freundlich klären.

Fazit: Wir hatten eine grandiose Zeit auf dem Boot und haben jetzt viele malerische Fotos im Album!
