There they will find a still mass of water on which the top of the chateau, just visible amid thick greenery, is reflected.

Excellent stay very clean and tidy, well recommend

5 of 5
Our stay at Annie's House in Pouancay was absolutely fabulous, I cannot speak more highly of the hosts Gerald and Sarah-Jane Beaumont, not only did they really welcome you with enthusiasm and great warmth, but really made you feel at home and ease, just what you need at the start of any holiday. They both could not do enough for you, Annie’s House was exceptionally tidy and clean throughout, fully kitted out for all your needs, set in a fantastic peaceful and beautiful area of France, it was a very quiet place to relax, had its own little private patio where you could sit out on an evening with a glass of wine to relax, and at the same time Pouancay is located just 6 miles down the road from Montreuil-Bellay which is a stunning little town in itself, with all the amenities at hand. Other areas of interest located nearby was Saumur, Chinon and Tours, all of which are in easy driving distance. We brought our bicycles and the area of countryside with it stunning views and cycle paths and quiet roads made Annie’s House an excellent location to be based from. Now that we have discovered this gem of a place within the Loire Valley, we will certainly be looking to return to Annie’s House in the future and will be certainly recommending both the house and our host’s to family and friends. I would also like to express our thanks to Sarah-Jane and Gerald for making our break such a wonderful holiday, not to be forgotten for years to come. Thank you

Perfect location with fab view

5 of 5
Bright and airy, modern apartment with plenty of parking opposite, (even in high season). The bed is very comfortable with good quality bed linen. There is a great bakers a few doors away and the town is only a few steps more. My Husband loved just watching the river roll by out of the window.
