There are lovely restaurants just around the corner, although the kitchen is so well equipped and atmospheric that it's really not necessary to eat out every night. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine every day so relaxing in the garden and the jacuzzi was a delight after a hard day of chateau viewing!

                                                                                                    5 of 5

The cycling path alongside the river where on a cold, bright winter's morning we saw very little other than a solitary heron from time to time provides an idyllic route into Angers. The local people were warm and friendly and Valerie, our landlady, was very friendly and helpful. Getting into the front door without being followed by a very eager black or tabby cat was an amusing challenge! We would highly recommend this apartment and location.
