Luxury Apartment With Château And 11th Century Church Views



Updated: 30-Apr-2016
Apartment in Mouliherne, Nr. Saumur, Loire Valley, France - Peaceful Location, Set In 5 Acres Of Grounds, Walking Distance To Local Commerce

A well appointed 1 bedroom apartment set in 5 acres of grounds with views of a château and an 11th century church. Located on the edge of a picture postcard Angevine village in a secluded location, steps away from local commerce. Perfectly placed for tours of châteaux and vineyards of the Loire. An easy trip for wine tasting at vineyards such as Bourgeuil, Chinon and Saumur which boast some of the best red, white and sparkling wines in the region. The area has a rich cultural heritage with ancient towns such as Chinon, Fontevraud and Baugé. Saumur is the home of the Cadre Noir French Cavalry regiment who entertain with spectacular displays in the Summer as well as a fairytale château and a beach! We are within easy reach of three historic cities. Angers; the home of Bourgeois chic, Tours; the birthplace of the French language and Le Mans; not only the home of the 24 hour race but also one of the oldest preserved. Jacobean centres. Something for everyone!

About the Owner

Lynn and I are a retired couple who moved over here 28 years ago and set up an Estate Agency in the area.

Now retired we are enjoying a slightly slower pace of life. We appreciate all our region has to offer - wines, châteaux and food.

Our whole family has since decided that we were 'on to a good thing' and have moved to the region too. Now we get to spend time with the grandchildren and are delighted to see them fully integrated into French life and schooling.

We enjoy meeting up with the couples who rent our apartment, many of whom come back year after year and we are available to offer advice on the region. We can even lay out suggested visits to towns and points of interest.

From the Owner

Lynn and I moved to France permanently 28 years ago. We settled on this area having spent 20 or so years travelling all round France and finally deciding on the Loire Valley. For us it was perfect. Not too hot and not too cold. Within easy reach of UK and mainland Europe. Close enough to the coast for a day trip and with some of the finest French wines, apple orchards and châteaux on our doorstep. We love the soft micro climate and the people are so welcoming! An idyllic escape but within easy access of culture, cities and as Lynn will attest to...shopping!

From the Owner

La Croix has been a labour of love as we restored it from a 'shell' when we moved in. Built in 1910 as a doctor's house and located next to the château (as was befitting for the home of an eminent doctor), the property is set in 5 acres of land but is just steps away from the local bars, boulangerie and superette. Now the house has all of the character but with modern conveniences. In the apartment you have all you need for a 'home away from home'. As we live in the main house we are more than happy to share our experiences and recommendations. Many of the principal châteaux and vineyards of the Loire are in the vicinity and there are unlimited outdoor pursuits as well as places of historic interest. We have a lake on the edge of the village and horse riding and golf are not far away.
