Lovely relaxing week.

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at Moulin de la Placette. The cottage was very clean and very well equipped. The bikes provided were very useful, especially as our 15 year old son finally taught himself to ride one, in the peace, quiet, and anonymity of rural France! The swimming pool was great for the boys, but a bit too cold for me!
Pauline and Keith were very good hosts, happy to help, but not intrusive. The area was very beautiful, surrounded by vineyards.
We went wine tasting at Logis de Noel in the village, a small, family-run vineyard, and they could not have been nicer, friendlier people! The wine was very good too! Our two teenage sons now think of themselves as proper wine connoisseurs!
We would definitely recommend this cottage.

Relaxing holiday in beautiful setting.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the Aubance gite in July 2011 and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the distant views of vines and hills. The pool was excellent and well maintained. The gite, although small was tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Pauline and Keith welcomed us warmly and were accessible for advice on restaurants etc. Highly recommend the restaurant at the old station in Bonnezeaux - a superb dining experience! We lots of pleasant walks and bike rides on the quiet roads and old rail trails. The gite is very handy for visiting Angers and towns along the Loire valley. The nearest town, Thourace has a very good supermarket and the farmers market at Doue-la-Fontaine on a Monday is extensive and well supplied. A great holiday spot!

Moulin de la Placette

Charming location in the Loire Valley district, great access to beautiful countryside. The Gite's are cosy, well furnished, and gathered around an open air pool in a large garden. Loads of room for the children to play. Many walks thri the vinyards. Local boulangerie for breakfast ...

Moulin de la placette

  • 5 out of 5
We had a very relaxing stay at Moulin de la Placette. The cottage was thoughtfully decorated and well appointed. Keith and Pauline struck a fine balance between being good hosts and giving us plenty of privacy. The setting is perfect, with beautiful views all around, hardly any traffic and a village a short walk away. The pool is lovely, great for kids due to its secure enclosure and excellent for adults too. There are also plenty of games and activities at hand. The surrounding area is beautiful with plenty to see and do in the vicinity. Overall excellent!

Warm, welcoming and well informed hosts together with a well-equipped pretty cottage made our holiday here a real pleasure. The property was spotlessly clean and well maintained, we relaxed in this beautiful setting.

Angers - Has a Chateau/Castle well worth a visit, it includes the renown Apocalypse Tapestry, 103 m long illustrating the last book of the Bible written by St John. Culturally, there are museums, a magnificent Cathedral, and guided walks around the Old Town. It has an abundance of restaurants and bars, and for those that like to mix both, the Cointreau Museum.

Saumur - Beautiful town, on the River Loire. Superb Chateau. Home to the world famous Cadre Noir. A tank museum and a mushroom museum. Champigny houses, some set in the limestone caves along the river.
