Les Volets Rouges comprises two beautifully restored gites located near the historic town of Saumur. They are set in the heart of an area famous for its beautiful historic buildings and for its wine. It is an ideal place for young families who like a holiday which mixes lolling around the pool with bike rides across the gentle undulating terrain that typifies this picturesque valley. The gites are located in a stunningly beautiful area only 3 kms from the Loire itself - now a Word Heritage site. While boasting a wonderful tranquil setting they are located within walking distance of a nearby town with breadshops & supermarket they are also only 13 km from Saumur itself.

The property is very peaceful, relaxing and off the beaten track. Mark and Judy and wonderful hosts - nothing is too much trouble. We appreciated being able to use their bikes to explore the beautiful countryside and we also enjoyed relaxing by the pool. Mark arranged and took us to a local chateau for a wine tasting session which was informative and great fun. We would definitely stay here again and thoroughly recommend it.
