Very nice, and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed two days at this lovely apartment overlooking the river in Saumur, and wish we could have stayed a few more days. The apt is comfortable, spacious and has not only a view of the river, but also of a nearby church and the chateau above! Everything is clean and you have what you need to make simple meals. There are too many good restaurants in Saumur to mention - we couldn't get in to the best ones because they were all booked, even at the end of September, but where we did eat we enjoyed. Highly recommend for a base to explore the area. Just be aware that the apt is on the 3rd floor (4th US) and up a narrow staircase, so bringing luggage up and down is a bit of a challenge if you're not prepared. Parking nearby was as described - easy and free just across the road. Much easier than any place else we've stayed, so a real plus if you have a car. Would certainly return. The owner, Aliette, was very responsive to any requests and made sure everything was ready for our arrival.

Stylish apartment in ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying here. The spartment is incredibly light and airy with beautiful views over the river and the old town. There is a boulangerie just steps away and restaurants within minutes. We didn't need to use the car, but were able to park it for free within sight of the apartment. There are 3 flights of stairs, but it is worth climbing them to get here!

Incredible location overlooking the Loire and a short stroll to central Saumur. Marvellous!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment spacious, spotlessly clean and generally well-equipped (although the lack of a washing machine would have been a problem if we had stayed longer) and actually better than the website description and photos.

Owner speaks good English and was very helpful and friendly.

The real bonus is the location, overlooking the Loire (with free parking on the lower quayside), with views of the chateau to the rear, and just minutes from the city centre shops and restaurants. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Owner's Response: Dear all, Many thanks for your commentary. You were also a great family. I know for the washing machine, there is a few public laundries in Saumur, but I know also it is very pleasant to have a machine for a long stay. Sorry for that, but there is a washing machine for the dishes ;)

The apartment is exactly like the pictures- lovely and very comfortable, spacious. The listing is 100% accurate. We used the kitchen- well equipped. We enjoyed saumur and the degustation. The location was great- very well located. The owner was also very helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Definitely recommend!

If decide to stay in Saumur to explore the area, you will first visit this beautiful city, its large market on Saturday morning, shows the Black Framework, the armor museum, take a cruise or kayaking on the Loire, visit cellars (some tours are designed for kids), antiquing at Emmaus (beware days openings) and other flea markets, shopping, relax in the pleasant cafe from the city center and dine in fine restaurants.

Saumur is well situated to shine and visit the castles of the Loire and original sites.

On the way to Chinon, Fontevraud Abbey magnificent set built at the initiative of Eleanor of Aquitaine, live music and quality entertainment from the spring Breze Castles where we find the most moat deep in Europe), and Montsoreau Langeais both the banks of the Loire, the house of Rabelais, "Deviniere" in Seuilly, Azay le Rideau, restored in 2014, the House of Balzac in Saché located a few km from Azay Rideau, Villandry - exceptional for its gardens, the cave site of Turquant ... etc

A west to Angers, you can go through the Loire (Les Rosiers, Gennes, Abbey Cunault) or make a detour by the Coteaux du Layon admire Montreuil-Bellay: the area around the fortified castle of the 12th century very well restored. The charm of this castle is also due to its location along the Thouet and the Old Town.

A Doue la Fontaine, you can visit "The Perrières", ancient stone quarries, the architecture and history are amazing, the Zoo de Doue la Fontaine for children. Doue La Fontaine is also the city of the Rose. Nursery grow very varied species. The days of the Rose held every year in July.

Coteaux du Layon in the region is the castle of Brissac Quincé but also many small castles, abbeys and charming villages.

In Angers, you can visit the Museum of Fine Arts, the Castle and the tapestries of the Apocalypse Lurcat.

To get an overview of the area and spend time "outside the norm" Balloon overflights are organized in summer by different companies.

Visit some vineyards and farms is also a rich theme to also meet very interesting personalities. (Addresses on request).

As for sports, there are many OT Saumur and situated next to the cottage everyone can learn according to their interests.
