About Teresa Brooks

My husband and I moved to this beautiful region of France after enjoying many lovely holidays in this area of the Loire Valley.This is our semi retirement from the very busy lives we led in the UK. We now have the space and time to enjoy growing our own vegetables, gardening, keeping a few chickens and enjoying our hobbies. We now have a different lifestlye away from the hustle and bustle of modern living, a step back in time.

This will be our second season in France after a very pleasant and relaxing first year.

Teresa Brooks purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Teresa Brooks chose Noyant-Villages

We chose to move to this area,as with its great local amenities it ticked all the boxes. Being close to the Loire River with a direct, uncomplicated drive from all of the cross channel ferry ports .La Cordonniere is the perfect location for touring the many magnificent chateaux and attractions of the Loire valley.

Our propery itself is just outside the market town of Noyant but in a rural setting with no immediate nieghbours.Our home is a converted barn in two acres of ground and your gite is the original independant cottage in the same grounds, close to us but with its own exclusively private garden and pool.

What makes this cottage unique

Our grounds offer the space and peace of rural living.

The gite is an icon of times gone by, very atmospheric and beautiful, The cottage originally two properties now converted into one dwelling makes for a very spacious living accomadation, With its thick tuffeu stone walls the house lives and breathes of days gone by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very many thanks to Roy and Teresa We found the Gite very relaxing, the well equipped kitchen made things easy. What a wonderful relaxing holiday

C'est magnifique

Super stay once again

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Les Rosiers two summers ago we booked for two weeks this summer. The improvements Roy and Teresa have made by adding the backdoor and outdoor covered seating area are ideal. The weather was fabulous and Roy kept the pool in top condition throughout our stay. We were pleased to see Madame Fromage and her car boot goat’s cheese was still visiting every Tuesday. It was an extremely relaxing stay, lots to do within an hours drive -when we could drag ourselves away from the pool. Highly recommended for a great stay in the Loire Valley.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your fabulous review, we are so pleased you all had a great time. The children love the pool so much sometimes the parents do not have to go any where else to entertain them. Ideal for a relaxing holiday for busy parents or we are close enough to activities of the Loire Valley to explore the different venues, parks, zoos, and man made beaches and of course the wine vineyards

Beautiful holiday home with everything you need for families and hounds!

  • 5 of 5

Charming gite with many little surprises to enjoy as you relax. Teresa and Roy (and Toby 🐶) were wonderful hosts, striking the perfect balance between helping you with anything you need whilst leaving you to enjoy your holiday.

Swimming pool beautifully tended, sprawling gardens to enjoy with the dog and children alike, and all you need inside (no Eurocamp style need to pop to the shops for missing essentials).

And whilst not in central Loire, there is still much to do within 30 minutes drive. Saumur being the main ‘tourist town’ 25 minutes down the road.

All local amenities perfectly located, with a decent sized Intermarche, wonderful Boulangeries and ATM’s less then 5 minutes drive away in Noyant.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

A charming property in a lovely area of France.

  • 5 of 5

Charming hosts who were most helpful with local places to visit. They also arranged for their vet to deal with our dogs return passport clearances. Facilities were very good both in the gite and outside in the garden area. Would certainly consider a return visit.

Great garden, spacious and rustic cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Very accommodating and friendly hosts who obviously care about the accommodation and the comfort of your stay (weather was rain and thunder when we were there and we were offered fresh towels - wish was very thoughtful). Wood burning stoves are made up ready for you to light if required. The new garden room/lean to is a useful space. Found the cottage a bit rustic but it is very old and we are used to a new build house! Really excellent facilities in garden that included loads of chairs, sun beds, childrens toys, bbq. Would gladly return to Roy & Teresa's lovely residence. Would score it 4.5 if we could so practically a 5!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review, comfort for our guests is priority The extra eating, playing area in the Garden room, it is perfect for extended Families to spread out, or a good choice of four eating areas for a couple. We do recommend a visit to the lakes at Hommes (15 min drive) where their are brilliant facilities for families, a man made beach, water toys, and fantastic play grounds for children of different age groups. We are in a great location to visit the sights of the Loire River, and the Cites.We are also a short drive from the World Famous Zoo at Le Fleche. Perfect for doing as much as you want or just having a relaxing time in the pool and the large garden

Rural France at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay La Rosiers in September. The Gite was homely and comfortable, with everything you might possibly need provided by the wonderful hosts, Teresa and Roy. The welcome wine and essential supplies was a nice touch for the weary traveller too! Great big garden, lovely pool, comfortable beds & sofas, well stocked kitchen, and dog friendly. Perfect experience all around!

Being just one mile from the attractive market town of Noyant, the gite of La Cordonniere is perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding area and discovering the secrets of the Loire Valley. We are located just 30 km north of Saumur in the triangle formed by Saumur, Tours and Le Mans and perfectly situated for you to visit the many Châteaux of the Loire Valley. The woodland walks, along with the scenic views, picnic areas, man made beaches, wine caves, Zoo's, villages of charm are all easily accessible. The beautiful Chateau town of Saumur which stands on the banks of the Loire River is well worth a visit. Shops and Cafe's are to be found in abundance along with Museums and the world famous Calvalry School. A 40 minute drive north is the famous race track of Le Mans, with its medieval town. Angers is also 40 minutes west where you can see the Apocalypse Tapestry in the famous Castle. You will never have enough time to explore all the attractions of the stunning Loire Valley!
