About Diane Williams

We live in Tunbridge Wells in England and bought the cottage 20 years ago. We have lovingly renovated it since then and have enjoyed many holidays in this beautiful area of France, cycling around the lanes, visiting chateaux or just chilling out in the garden.

Diane Williams purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Diane Williams chose Maine-et-Loire

We chose to buy this house for it's location set amongst apple orchards, corn & sunflower fields. We spend endless hours enjoying the 'big starry skies' and uninterrupted views across the countryside. The perfect antidote to a busy working life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at le Boulet. The house is in a gorgeous location and was so well equipped with everything we needed. Our boys 2 & 6 have loved every minute of it and they are already keen to plan a return visit. There really is so much to do and we enjoyed visiting towns, chateaus, going on bike rides and the boys highlight was going to Terra Botanica. We were amazed how peaceful the surrounding area was and it was such an easy drive from Calais too. Thanks for a great holiday!

Excellent location to explore the Loire

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cottage for a weeks stay and were immediately charmed by the location and open countryside all around us. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and Arnaud and Cindy are always at the end of the lane if you need help or advice. We visited Saumur, Chinon, Amboise and Chenonceau, went to Cadre Noir horse show and the BioParc at at Doue Le Fontaine which I cannot recommend enough. We hope to be back soon.

Really Great Cottage !

  • 5 of 5

We booked le Boulet at short notice to grab a few days of holiday at the end of summer. We already knew the area, having stayed several times near La Fleche, but wanted to stay somewhere new. Ciaran was very responsive and flexible in getting our booking sorted quickly; and so we were able to enjoy a full 10 days at Le Boulet - and a delightful time we had there! The cottage itself is spacious, extremely well-equipped, comfortable, and quiet. One minor drawback is that the upstairs head height was a bit low for me at 6ft 1". My fault for being tall. The cottage's location is frankly - fabulous! Just a couple of miles from Noyant (not a lot to say about Noyant, except that it has a decent sized Intermarche and a couple of boulangeries) and yet you really feel that you out in the countryside. The cottage is surrounded by fields of corn, sunflowers and apples, but it is such a quiet location! The only neighbours are Arnaud and his wife Cindy who look after the property and are delightful, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed many evenings sat on the patio area, overlooking open fields and watching the sun go down. As a location for visiting the local towns and chateaux, Le Boulet is excellent, as the road to Saumur is just a couple of hundred yards away. Ditto for heading north towards Angers, Bauge and La Fleche. We also liked being able to walk and cycle on the local network of tiny and almost deserted road - mostly flat too! So, a really great cottage which we heartily recommend!

Totally relaxed

  • 5 of 5

Just had a last minute week away at this delightful cottage in the Loire valley. The nearby town of Noyant provides most amenities, a very good market on friday morning) we also found a very good outdoor swimming pool at Le-Lude, also a nice Chateaux there. This area is very good for Chateaux visits ( Saumur, Chinon, Tours etc). All in all we had a really relaxing time. Will definitely be coming back !!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the property, along with my wife, early May 2014. i wanted an 'away from it all' break for a couple of weeks and this proved to be ideal. The house is in a rural location, with few neighbours, yet within easy travelling time of the delights of the loire Valley. the area can offer walking, cycling, golf, fishing etc, all close by or within a short journey. The property was clean, well looked after and well equipped, pretty much as described on the web and the helpful key holders live just down the road. We'll most probably be back.
