Angulus Ridet (Latin; "This corner of the earth makes me happy") is a beautifully refurbished collection of boutique farmhouse cottages set around a central courtyard. Ideal for a large family / groups of couples where people can get together at the same venue but have independent accommodation each with their own entrances, fully fitted shower rooms and living rooms / kitchen diners.
There are 4 king size double bedrooms (2 with en-suite shower rooms) and 1 twin bedroom (which can be made up as a king size double). There are 2 family shower rooms. There is an additional studio with 2 singles on a mezzanine level and a further single bed on the ground floor. The studio also has an en-suite shower room.
Two of the cottages also have a double sofabed increasing capacity to a maximum of 17 people. One cottage has a wood burning stove making it a really cosy place to curl up and relax out of-season. Cottages have heaters in all rooms. Bed linen and towels are included in the price.
There are two covered verandas for outdoor dining, one in the courtyard and one in the south facing garden. There are also several areas (pergola, patio and inside) for communal gatherings/socialising/eating.
There is ample car parking in the gated garden area. We have a heated outdoor swimming pool (open May-Oct) and an adjacent sunbed terrace. Our covered games room incorporates games like table tennis and darts. Outside there are areas for outdoor activities such as boules/petanque, badminton and a basketball hoop.
The size of the grounds and the layout of the accommodation ensures everyone has space and privacy when desired as well as areas to congregate all together. Each cottage has a separate kitchen equipped with cooker, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, crockery and cutlery etc should you choose to cook yourself and there is a large supermarket only 5 minutes away with excellent charcuterie, fish and fresh vegetables.
Ideally situated for visiting the Loire valley with its chateaux and vineyards, and within easy walking distance of the town of Richelieu which has historic buildings, spacious parklands and a market square around which you'll find a variety of restaurants and bars. It's only a short walk to several boulangeries for your morning croissants, bread and cakes. The chateaux and vineyards of the Loire valley are less than an hour away as are the pretty towns of Chinon, Saumur and the bigger cities of Tours and Poitiers
