House in Noyant, Nr. Saumur, Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire, Peaceful rural Location
This very comfortable gite is located between the river La Loire and Le Loir in the beautiful Loire Valley. It was only completed in 2011, and has beenvery well received by the first visitors. It is one bedroomed, but with two bathrooms , excellent kitchen facilities and cosy lounge/diner plus super outside dining patio with table, chairs, recliners and barbecue. Parking is available directly outside, so no carrying cases too far. We have tried to make this a home from home, with plenty of extra little touches which we hope will enhance your holiday. We are close to several Chateaux, vineyards and of course the famous Le Mans 24 hour circuit and three cities, which makes this an interesting area to explore. Within our complex there is a further small studio gite, which can be offered favourably with this gite. We can also offer the opportunity to partake of an evening meal (chef cooked) which can add that special treat, and means you do not have to drive anywhere.
About the Owner
About Joan Clarke
We have lived here in France for 8 years, having run a busy catering company in the u.k for over 30 years. Peter was the chef and Joan the front of house and general organiser. We have enjoyed renovating our lovely longere here in the Loire valley and enjoyed meeting many lovely visitors to our chambres d'hotes and gites. We are both involved with horses and ponies, and have been carriage driving for 30 years plus and continue to drive here in france and even compete in their Concours de Tradition competitions - great fun and hospitality!
Peter loves to cook for guests and we do offer the opportunity to enjoy a lovely three course meal, if requested.
We have been in the hospitality business for all our married life and hope that we can help to make your holiday special.
Joan Clarke purchased this cottage in 2003
Why Joan Clarke chose Maine-et-Loire
Bought the property in readiness to retire from the hectic catering life and find a small corner of rural france to make home and enjoy the lifestyle. We have renovated the property over the years and it has come a long way from the place we bought. It is a beautiful spot which catches the sun and allows one to unwind and take a more stress free life.
Come and join us.
What makes this cottage unique
We find our property very convenient for local shops, and wonderful countryside and cities. We have visited many chateaux and been fortunate to enjoy the very best Loire wines, add to that some lovely sunshine and we have perfection!
