Luxury Delightful Cottage Mouliherne with all amenitys ,Near Saumur Loire Valley , France - Peaceful Country Location 10 Minute To Walk Mouliherne

Cottage is set in pretty rural location entered by drive with electric gates , quiet romantic place, my love of rustic antique furniture is splattered throughout the cottage with some modern shabby chic too, Large walk in shower with antique marble sink set in original cupboard this was from a Chateau. This is a quirky cottage with large original fireplace and log burner, good kitchen plenty of cupboards.

About the Owner

I am English with French partner who was born in the village so full of knowledge where to visit, we enjoy this wonderful region, We appreciate what our region has to offer - wines, châteaux and of course the most excellent food and restaurants.

When possible enjoy meeting up with people who rent our cottage, many of whom come back year after even two or three times in the same year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tastefully decorated lovely cottage to stay exactly as described by the owners who are very nice and helpful. Very good location, although we couldn't find the place at first and the owner helped us with direction. Surrounded by vineyards, It takes only 15-20 minutes to reach Saumur where plenty of activities are available for both adults and children, shopping centre with supermarket, also from there you can start travelling along river Loire and visit Castles. We stayed for 3-4 days and would love to return and stay longer - so much to see! Anna London Trip advisor

Spent an enjoyable 10 nights in this well presented cottage, thoughtful welcome pack on arrival, cottage contained an array of cleaning materials. Well laid out accommodation, with everything that is needed whilst on holiday. We don't generally watch tv whilst on holiday but the added touch of English TV was a welcome change. Wifi worked best outside on the patio but the signal is coming from the owners house so was to be expected. Generous private garden available with a short stroll to a private lake. Not very much happening in the village of mouliherne, saumur which is a very nice place to visit was an easy 20 minute drive.

Lots of positives about the cottage, modern and clean, safe parking at night with a remote controlled gate to keep things secure Tripadvisor

A most enjoyable holiday in a peaceful and pretty location. Convenient for visiting local attractions with a boulangerie and small supermarket in the village.The cottage is very well appointed offering good amenities and comfort with a small outside attached covered private area. Nice grounds in which to relax. Would certainly recommend.

The property is very spacious and quirky. Lovely oak beams and very quiet.

  • 5 of 5

In the middle of nowhere but only 1/2 hr away from the river Loire it made a lovely base to stay. It fully lived up to its promise. It is beautifully kept and Jane,the owner, couldn't do too much for us. What she couldn't sort then Gerrard, her partner was on hand. We would have no hesitation telling friends and family about this lovely accommodation. The village nearby had most of our immediate needs including a restaurant. We are looking forward to a return visit in the not to distant future.

A superb quiet place to relax and chill

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a great welcome. The gite was quite spectacular with a lake in the grounds and extensive garden area to use. The gite was spotless and extremely tidy. We had use of bbq and a hot tub if we wished. The grounds were very secure and very well maintained. the owner gave us a greetings card and a a food package to help us replenish our strength following the journey down. I would love to visit again hopefully next time the weather will be better. But a place to stay at a great price , well done Jane

Lovely quiet location in a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

The start of our holiday was a struggle with 5 hour delays at the Channel tunnel. Jane was very supportive and arranged to have the property easily accessible for us arrive eventually at after midnight.

The cottage is lovely and quaint with great, secure gardens for me to let Lottie (my German Shepherd) have a stretch and run around with her tennis ball.

It has easy access to the local area with so much to see and do in the Loire Valley, the area was amazingly dog friendly. I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you want a safe secure property that you don't have to worry about your children or dogs while they play.

From the Owner

I moved to France and choose the Loire Valley firstly after meeting a wonderful couple with whom I bought several properties with and I had the up most confidence in I felt when buying a property in a foreign country this is so important.. For me the Loire Valley was perfect. Not too hot or too cold. Within easy reach of UK by ferry or plenty of easy airports also to connect with mainland Europe. Close enough to the coast for a day trip Recommend La Baule and we are lucky enough to live with some of the finest French wines, apple orchards surround us and châteaux to visit on our doorstep. We love the climate and everyone is so friendly and helpful.
