Overview

About the property

Ideal for a large family/groups where people can get together yet have privacy

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

About Alan Hornsby

Angulus Ridet (Literal Latin translation is “The Angle of Laughs” interpreted as “This corner of the earth makes me happy”) has been in the Lassi family for nearly 30 years bought by Sari’s parents as their own holiday destination from their native Finland.

During the last 5 years we (Sari & husband Alan) have carried out a programme of renovations creating a holiday home which we are delighted to share with others.

Alan Hornsby purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Alan Hornsby chose Chaveignes

Angulus Ridet is an ideal holiday destination for families with a number of generations or groups of friends wanting to spend time together yet have the benefit of their own fully equipped cottage with entrance from the shared courtyard. Each cottage of this historic property has been fully renovated and modernised whilst carefully preserving many of the original features.

In addition to the courtyard, your party will have the use of a large south facing garden, heated outdoor swimming pool (open May-Oct), games room with table tennis etc and a number of areas to get together to eat/socialize (covered verandas, terraces, pergola and inside dining).

Parking for up to 5 cars is available in a private gated car park on the premises.

We are located just south of the Loire Valley, ideal for visiting the chateaux and the vineyards of this beautiful region. Angulus Ridet is a very short drive away from the historic city of Richelieu (20 minute walk) with its bars and restaurants and weekly market. Well equipped Intermarche supermarket is on a doorstep (10 minute walk).

AUGUST 2018 FRIENDS AND FAMILY BEANO

  • 5 of 5

We, that being 9 of us, 6 adults and 2 kids and a 16 yr old. were greeting by Alan and Sari with ice cold wine and beer from the journey from Calais in 87 degree heat, nice touch.

our stay in Angulus Ridet was absolutely delightful, the properties have been renovated to a very high spec. the pool is a lovely fenced off area with sun lounges and brollies but still in eye shot and sight of the outside veranda area which was our main eating and meeting area for the gang. all the farmhouses were very well equipped from towels to all kitchen utensils .

the town of Richelieu is a 15min walk away with its art galleies and small cafe bars in the two main squares is a nice walk in the evenings, the is a well stocked supermarket 2 minutes drive 5 minute walk away. plus two very good bakeries 10 mins away for fresh bread and croissants . the castle and town of Chinon is worth a visit and the wine named after the town is lovely, Alan the owner recommended. all in all a lovely place to stay and a fantastic base to explore the Loire valley, thank you Alan & Sari
