We really couldn't recommmend Les Peupliers highly enough. We stayed for seven nights (had planned for five but an unfortunate problem with our car kept us there another two, which turned out to be a blessing).
You could not ask for more hospitable, helpful and genuinely lovely hosts than Mike and Tracey.
We stayed in one of the Hayloft rooms, which were slightly more expensive than the others but certainly worth it. The room was spacious but cosy with a lovely bathroom and shower.
We ate dinner there on three evenings and each night were treated to a delicious three course meal with local and home-grown ingredients, given an interesting twist by Mike's expert cooking. You cannot leave without at least a couple of bottles of MIke's homemade balsamic vinegar and oils.
Saumur and the surrounding region has so much to offer that we could easily have spent another week there and not been in want of things to do. Having lived there some years now, Mike and Tracey are very knowledgeable of the area are happy to recommend things to do and places to see.
One of the great highlights for us was the wine tour which Tracey arranged for us, an absolute must if you have the time.
As mentioned, we had a spot of car trouble while we there. Our hosts could not have been more helpful and generous in helping us deal with the situation.
Thank you Mike and Tracey for an unforgettable stay!
