Location: Loudun, between Saumur and Chinon Tours area, Centre-Loire valley, a UNESCO World heritage Site. Chinon is situated in the middle of the protected area. Loudun is a pleasant town of 7,000 with ancient streets and five officially recognized historic monuments. Visited, but not overly-touristy, it is well situated for visiting the chateaux and vineyards of the region. Nearby is Chinon, Saumur and Fontevraud (a royally-sponsored abbey complex associated with the Plantagenets), also the Poitou area, with it's rich history, Roman arts, and relaxed, peaceful lifestyle. Though the 'Maison-des-Chevaliers' is located in the very center of the old town, it is surprisingly peaceful. Yet everything is outside your door: parking lot free of charge, cafes, shops, restaurants and a lively and colorful weekly farmers' market. The owners (who returned to the area after retiring) live in the main part of the house are able to offer advice or help with any aspect of your holiday if you desire.
We have rented holiday apartments in France many times but rarely had an apartment as thoughtfully arranged and nicely furnished as this one. Elice & J-Louis are excellent hosts-gracious and helpful with wonderful senses of humor. Loudun is a fine base for exploring the area. We sincerely give this apartment our highest recommendation.

Many thanks for your warm welcome. It was very interesting to hear a little of the history of your old town and of course your beautiful home and the little blue door! We felt very much at home in the cosy apartment and appreciated your conviviality (after 3 months in Europe)J & G, Cordoroy, Australia
A very comfortable, well-equipped apartment plus charming hosts. Loudun has accessible walks and nice gardens, its surrounding area are very beautiful - lots to do. Also to eat outside in the garden was delightful. We shall treasure these memories during the dark winter days. We do plan to return!

Elice and Jean Louis thank you for such an amazing experience in Loudun at Maison-des-Chevaliers. Your warm welcome was very much appreciated as you offered so much interesting advice on where to eat, shop and all those exciting villages and chateaux to visit. We are missing our early morning walks around historic Loudun and selecting a freshly baked baguette and croissant before returning to the Maison. We enjoyed relaxing and talking to hosts Elice and Jean Louis in early June, in their beautiful rose scented garden. Thanks for the memories and sharing your pride and joy with us.
This was a holiday location made just for us in every way.
We were delayed on our way down France and, after a phone call, Elice booked us a restaurant for the Saturday evening.
Elice and her husband were very friendly and helpful, offering advice about where to visit, eat and shop.
The apartment is very spacious with all the facilities you could wish for, including a dishwasher!!
We spent quiet time in the local town and visited a number of local attractions and bigger towns. A wonderful and relaxing break.
On arrival at this wonderful seventeenth century heritage listed property located in Loudun we were greeted by our hosts Elice and Jean Louis, this couple turned out to be the most friendly people one could ever wish to meet.
The apartment was clean and very well appointed with more than adequate kitchen facilities should you wish to dine in.
Our hosts with a wealth of knowledge provided information regarding Loudun and the surrounding Loire valley and the amazing site seeing, villages, chateau's and castles etc.
The medieval village of Loudun has some excellent restaurants and cafe's plus shopping and some excellent walking tour routes.
The property has a walled garden area for relaxing and enjoying the hosts company.
We toured the Loire valley and its wonderful scenery and architecture daily after a walk and coffee in Loudun.
Driving in this area is relatively easy with non congested roads and streets a navigation device is essential.
We had a wonderful experience for Carole's 70th birthday and will return to revisit and stay at Maison des Chevaliers again and strongly recommend this adventure to all.

We think that we made the perfect choice when we decided to spend the last 4 days of our France vacation in the village of Loudon in the Maison - des-Chevaliers. The description sounded perfect for us...size of the village...sights available nearby...and, a charming, cozy apartment. We rented the studio apartment as the larger one was already booked. The property is even more beautiful than described. Everything was perfect. It was clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. These are people who have thought of everything. There is information on all of the nearby attractions, but even more, Elice sat down with us and explained and suggested activities. She even made a reservation for dinner for us at the nicest restaurant for our first evening. They are a lovely couple and have put lots of care and love into presenting their home. Five stars doesn't seem like enough. We would recommend it to anyone. Bob and Maria
