    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    It is a beautiful old property (up to 400 years),only a few steps away from Montreuil-Bellay Chateau, in the historic part of Montreuil-Bellay, Loire... Done up in a slightly modern way, with an open plan feel in the main living area, though exposing the characterful old stone wall on one side by the fire - a modern wood-burning stove which warms the whole place very well. There are two bedrooms upstairs, a landing overlooking the living-room (which has a double sofa-bed), a bathroom with a bath and hand shower, toilet downstairs and large cave. There is a sweet fully equipped kitchen which has a table and benches. There is a large garden, the garden of which is shared with guests who may be staying at 'The Secret Gem' (536809),see also photo attached, but there is plenty of sp... more

    How to get there
    Calais is a shorter crossing, but longer drive by two hours in France. Ryan Air fly to Poiters which is the cheapest, then it's only a 45 min drive or taxi. You may like to hire a car, so you can enjoy visits to other places in the Loire. Though once in Montreuil- Bellay, you can walk to the restaurants, supermarket and pattiserie and so don't necessarly need a car to enjoy a nice relaxing time.

The Hidden Gem is a lovely little find in the centre of the town and is well secluded and very quiet. Louise is a wonderful host and made our stay very... more

A friend and I enjoyed a long ten days staying in the Hidden Gem, which is a newly renovated wing off the main house: a real picture postcard property. Both rooms on the mezzanine are very comfortable, private and well lit, able to sleep with the window open, enjoying little noise except the birds. Bathroom and kitchen are all very... more

Louise, the owner of the property was really helpful and easily contactable. The key was just where she said it would be! The village is charming and well provided with shops and restaurants. We enjoyed a picnic lunch on the river, just a few minutes walk away. Many of the well- known chateaux are within an hour’s drive and well... more
