La Boulangerie with 500 year bread oven is on one side of the courtyard, attached to the historic 16th century entrance arch with the pigeonier above. You just walk up a slight incline to the Pool Garden to enjoy the lawn, flower beds and fruit trees and the 10m x 5m swimming pool with steps and patio providing a wonderfully relaxing area for swimming, sunbathing and alfresco dining. All set in our 2 acre secure walled gardens with lovely views of the surrounding fields of sunflowers, vines and forest.

It is an ideal base to be able to explore all that is offered in the surrounding region. Super for couple with young child (baby), cot, high chair provided.

We had a very enjoyable week in this property. John and Margaret are ideal hosts in terms of generosity (an excellent welcome pack) and approachability when needed. The property is finished and equipped to high standards and the pool, walled garden and surrounding prairie are a welcome break after a hot day touring. The property is within 30 minutes drive...

For a taste of rural France, away from the crowds but within a stone's throw from the beautiful centre of Saumur and the delights of the Loire Valley, then look no further than La Boulangerie. John and Margaret Adams offer an extremely charming and comfortable residence, with all the amenities of home and the additional benefits of spacious gardens, a...

Thank you again for the kind review, it was a pleasure having you stay. Saumur has seen the centre renovated, the theatre is now open and Place Saint Pierre is looking fantastic. 2014 and 2015 produced great wine harvests. Hope to seen you in 2016.
