Having stayed at Les Rosiers two summers ago we booked for two weeks this summer. The improvements Roy and Teresa have made by adding the backdoor and outdoor covered seating area are ideal. The weather was fabulous and Roy kept the pool in top condition throughout our stay. We were pleased to see Madame Fromage and her car boot goat’s cheese was still visiting every Tuesday. It was an extremely relaxing stay, lots to do within an hours drive -when we could drag ourselves away from the pool. Highly recommended for a great stay in the Loire Valley.
This was our first visit to France and also using HomeAway. This property is beautiful both inside and out with everything you will need for a perfect get away. The owner John King was so helpful and supportive and answered any questions within a couple of hours. The farm house is right in the rural countryside and so peaceful and quiet. It was a good base for exploring the local Chateaux's and vineyards, you are spoilt for choice. As an example Amboise and Chenoncheau are an hour away (note local road speed limits are lower and slower than UK) and Saumur is only 25 minutes. Vernoil-le-Fourrier and Vernantes have local amenities with a Super U or slightly further afield, there are hypermarkets in Bourgeuil and Saumur. A must do is get local produce from the daily farmers markets in the area and top up from the supermarkets. Due to the properties location and not wanting to fall foul of French drink driving laws, we tended to eat out at lunch while exploring and eat at the farm house for dinner. There was a fully stocked kitchen and a BBQ for cooking and eating Al fresco. When eating out, most restaurants open from 12:30pm until 3pm then close and reopen at 7pm. All day eating is not the French way. There are numerous vineyards where the owners are only to pleased to give you a guided tour and tasting. Recommend Langlois Chateaux and Veuve Amiot in Saumur but you need to book tours and tasting for the best experience. The weather was in the 30+ Deg C for the entire duration of the stay and the hottest its been for 10 years. The farm house down stairs was cool during the day but as the bedrooms were upstairs, were lot warmer but not unbearable with fans provided. The property has a modern bathroom (corner bath, shower, toilet) adjoining the bed rooms up stairs with a further shower room and toilet downstairs. The property has adjacent barns for storage of the outdoor furniture and a covered area for parking the car. We will be definitely returning again in the future.
