About May Simpkin

Living in Surrey, England, the Loire Valley has provided a haven of peace and tranquility for my husband, myself and our 3 children, who have been visiting every summer since our youngest was 2 years old. As teenagers, they still enjoy the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the real pleasures in life - relaxing "en famille", dining alfresco and taking turns to man the BBQ!

May Simpkin purchased this cottage in 2001

Why May Simpkin chose Concourson-sur-Layon

Whether you're holidaying as a family or a large group, this property provides home-from-home comfort for you to enjoy during your holiday. The Loire has proved an ideal location; an easy drive from the ferry and Eurotunnel ports but also very accessible from international airports, whilst still providing a tranquil rural location. We are ideally located to visit the many fabulous chateaux and vineyards in the region. With our local expert sommelier, we are able to arrange unique vineyard visits within close proximity or further afield in this rich wine growing region.

What makes this cottage unique

With 4 properties on site, you can holiday as a large group of family/friends whilst having your own accommodation. Our central courtyard has proved an ideal spot to gather for meals and games. Self-catering doesn't mean you have to compromise; we offer the luxury whilst still allowing a relaxed feel. Rarely in France do you find all the bedrooms ensuite; our properties offer this comfort, allowing for all guests to enjoy their own facilities whilst holidaying with others. A comfortable night's sleep is essential during your stay and our beds and crisp white linen have been complemented on a number of occasions. Relaxing on site is a delight and the walled garden surrounding the swimming pool is an ideal sun-trap for lazy afternoons after a day's sightseeing! Despite it's rural location, we are fortunate to have a large out-of-town supermarket complex a mere 5mins drive away; essential for the inevitable daily grocery shopping holidaying as a large group entails!

The Loire Valley is a often referred to as the 'Garden of France' due to the abundance of vineyards, fruit and vegetable orchards which line the river Loire. This stunning part of France is noted for its historic towns, architecture and wine. The Loire Valley wine region is world-renowned for it's production of distinctive fruity crisp wines. The area is also known for it's 'bubbles' with any of the local vineyards and champagne houses offering excellent wine tasting tours. You will find some fabulous choices from a very modest budget to the more extravagant. The spectacular opening of the champagne with a sabre sword is not to be missed…!

The entire area is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its exceptional cultural landscape of historic cities and villages and of course the stunning architectural monuments - the châteaux; the legacy of its time as home to the French royalty for a century and a half. The River Loire’s width engages a real feeling of space and freedom even during the peak summer tourist season and offers plenty of family-friendly outdoor activities whether you fancy cruising or canoeing/kayaking on the water, cycling along the banks of the Loire or exploring ancient cave dwellings.

The local fabulous zoo in Doue la Fontaine approximately 5mins drive from us, is well worth a visit. The Zoo was originally created out of old stone quarries and underground caves and is now home to a variety of exotic animals including big cats, penguins, reptiles and vultures. It’s conservationist approach has won many of our reluctant guests over!

One of the pleasures of visiting the Loire is to enjoy wandering through one of the many traditional French markets! You’ll find wonderful local fruit and vegetables alongside cheese, bread, patisserie and much more for you to pick up for your alfresco lunch/dinner!

We are fortunate to be located in between two major cities; Saumur, a short 20mins drive, is a beautiful city with it's recently restored chateau majestically overlooking the river Loire and some fabulous quaint shops, including a typical french cheese delicatessen. The excellent selection of restaurants provide an ideal opportunity to enjoy the ambience of the city along with a typical 'confit de canard' and espresso! Saumur is also known for its Cavalry and the famous 'Cadre-Noir' performances as well as other events and tours are available. Angers, a mere 35mins away, is the capital of Maine-et-Loire and steeped in history and character, whilst providing many more amenities typical of a larger city. The shopping in particular is fabulous, with it's own 'Galleries Lafayettes' department stores as well as a number of other fashion chains.

We are well located to combine a visit to EuroDisney in Paris - 1½ hrs by TGV train from Angers. Approx 1hr 15mins, this is a Medieval theme park, Puy de Fou, with live jousting, battles and Falconry. It’s a great day out for the family, with a wonderful night show starting at 10:30pm until 12:30am – booking essential. Well worth a visit!

Take a fantastic journey into space and enjoy a voyage of Fantasy, Discovery, Pleasure and Excitement!! Futuroscope is a great family day out with a huge range of activities. Futuroscope is about 1½ hours away just outside Poitiers.
