Recently my wife and I did a walking tour through the Loire valley (Angers to Chinon). Great countryside, easy walking, friendly locals, great weather, what more could you want. Our 2 day stay at Domaine de Mestre was one of the highlights. Originally a Fantevraud Abbey farm. Some buildings date back to 12th century. It has been in the same family since 1795. It was turned into b&b 27 years ago. It is still a family affair. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, the hosts helpful and friendly. The highlight was the home cooked meal by Madame Dauge. Highly recommended.
