About Ben Mitchell

Why Ben Mitchell chose Vienne

We fell in love with La Grande Maison the second we first set our eyes on her.

We have lovingly restored this amazing house and now have two gites and B&B rooms that sleep upto 20 people as well as a ballroom that we use for weddings and parties

What makes this cottage unique

We have an excellent local knowledge and can point you towards the delights that the Loire valley has to offer.

We have a wine guide that will take you around some of the finest vineyards and we can offer bike hire as well.

We have the river at the end of our land for swimming fishing painting or just relaxing.

We are in easy reach of Center Parcs, Futuroscope, Puy du Fou and the delights of the Loire

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our 2nd visit to La Grande Maison was as good if not better than last year. With 4 friends in tow this time, we BBQ each night, enjoying epic table tennis, pool & jenga contests with wine from our trips to Loire vineyards and mouth watering delights from local markets. The charm of La Grande Maison Starts from the moment you arrive. The 2 bed gite is well equip for 2 couples. A spacious bathroom and lovely shower. The BBQ is great for outdoor dining. Things to do...Highly recommend Alain for wine tours. He will pick you up from the gite. Chinon and Saumur make nice day trips.



A beautiful grand house with B&B and adjacent Gites for rent. I recommend the wine tasting trip and relaxing by the river at the end of the huge garden. A warm welcome and family friendly atmosphere, lots to do and places to see in a great region. We had the best weekend staying in one of the Gites-Thank you



Our Hosts Ben and Billie treated us like part of the family and the hospitality was tremendous.
