A really amazing flat. Incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and furnished inside with fantastic views of the chateau, river and rooftops. Very spacious - 5 bedrooms and great location in the centre of the old town but also you were in the countryside within two minute's cycle. Saumur is a lovely town and the area has a great deal to offer.

Gilles, the owner, is very friendly and helpful.

Amazing spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful base for our adventure in the Loire River Valley! The location was perfect - a short walk to the historic square, countless restaurants and shops, and amazing views of the chateau and river. The apartment is also located in such close proximity to wine caves, chateaux, beautiful small towns, and big cities - we were able to see and do a great deal during our stay. The apartment itself was spacious and comfortable for our party of 8, and was just as it is described and pictured - just lovely. Gil was great to work with and very flexible with some unforeseen travel changes due to flight delays. Fantastic family trip in an idyllic setting!

Spectacular property

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. The 2 floors are very spacious with the common areas full of stunning antiques. It has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The view of the Saumur Chateau is breathtaking. It is in town, so you can walk to resturants, shops, markets, wine caves, museums as well as the chateau. Mr. Gillies was very helpful making sure we had what we needed and very quick and thorough will all communication. We would stay there again if in the area. We had a wonderful 2 weeks.

Elegant, convenient, spacious, historic

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this property in Saumur was a wonderfully adventurous time. The apartment was across the street from the Loire river and within walking distance of countless restaurants, shops, tourist office, grocery stores, and open market on Saturday. The elevator reached both the first and second floors making convenient to deliver our groceries because the main kitchen was on the second level. The apartment was quiet and dark when needed. During the day, we opened he shutters and let in lots of light and lovely vistas. My friends and I are planning a return trip next year and I hope to stay here again.

Beautiful, large apartment in Saumur

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly located on the Loire river with views of the river, Chateau and surrounding town. The building is historic so has some quirks you'd expect in an updated apartment - the bathrooms and kitchen are small, but well equipped - and the beautiful furnishings, large living and dining areas and location are unparalleled. The apartment could sleep 10 easily but it was wonderfully roomy for 4 couples. I highly recommend this apartment and would stay again if I go back to Saumur.

Owner's Response: It is great to have fits with some guests. Thank you for your nice comments. Apartment deserves it more than I deserve it. History has built the property with the views. Even when you are sat you see them... Our ancestors understood the importance of them... You are welcome to come back..., and share the beauty of the apartment and of Saumur.
