We both agreed that our holiday at La Croix de Noel was one of the best ever.
The apartment was in the area that we wanted to visit, near to Saumur. It's also in a large village with shops bars etc.
The apartment itself is very spacious for two people, equipped with everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. The owners, Lynn and John, are delightful and very helpful.
We used the literature and maps in the apartment to plan our days out. We visited the chateaux at Villandry and Chenonceau (which were amazing) and saw the display of the Cadre Noir at Saumur. Another 'must do' are the Ackerman caves at Saumur. Their wines are exceptionally good at very reasonable prices.
My lasting memory is sitting in the garden in the sun, looking out across the fields towards a 15C manor house drinking chilled sparkling Saumur wine.
We'll be back! more
