After our latest stay at Le Logis du Pressoir, I can safely say that it's as wonderful as ever. Lisa, Mark and Tom are the perfect hosts - friendly, knowledgeable about the local area and always willing to help out or stop for a chat.
We stayed in Les Rosiers, which like the other gites, is well appointed, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Each gite has its own BBQ which we made use of. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the week lounging by the pool interspersed with a couple of visits to nearby Saumur to sample the wine. We were also lucky enough to catch a stage of the Tour de France which was passing just a few miles away.
It really is the perfect getaway; quiet and relaxing, yet close enough to some great tourist attractions. We hope to go for a longer visit next time.
