Monasteries and Abbeys abound, Fontevraud, Fontgombeau among the many - A feast of history both English and French.

The eating, drinking and sourcing wonderful produce is an essential part of a visit to this area - it exciting to explore the restaurant and vineyards.

Loire wines are superb with some of the best vineyards very close by - Chinon, Panzoult, Cravant les Coteaux, Saumur, Bourgeuil, Saumur Champigny and many others.

Sporting activities include Golf, canoeing, tennis, biking. Bikes and canoes can be rented locally.

Reviews

« We had a wonderful holiday at Le Manoir Val de Veude so thank you very much. »  Kate

« We did indeed enjoy your beautiful house. I can fully understand why you choose to make it your home, you must be very reluctant to part with it. Everything from the pool in in the sunshine to the extensive reading material in the rain made for a very relaxing break. We have been visiting the Loire Valley now for over 25 years and it’s magic and allure never wanes. We managed to tick off a few more chateaux so there can’t be many left!

The Wifi was invaluable too both for business and for keeping us updated with news at home.

I wish you well with your property and hope to enjoy it again in the future. »  Melanie

« I just wanted to let you know that we have had a perfect week in your lovely home in France - our daughter and her partner enjoyed it just as much as we did. We did poach a few of you lovely quinces from the tree in the garden and they were delicious. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. »  Angela

« Great house and lovely holiday. »  Politowski family

« I wanted to write and tell you what a fantastic week we spent in your lovely house last week...
The house and the gardens were really comfortable and welcoming. We appreciated the crisp bedsheets and fluffy towels and the cleanliness of everything. It was really interesting looking at all the art work in the house and the children particularly enjoyed the art (as well as the hammocks outside). It was fantastic how everything from the iron to the bat and ball set was of good quality and it made it a real pleasure to stay there. The garden was very inviting and a lot of care had obviously been put into how it was laid out and planted. We were very warmly welcomed when we arrived (we were a bit late) and Annie very kindly sent on recorded delivery a pair of diamond earrings that I left behind. We were very glad that she was so honest and so helpful too. With very best wishes and our thanks. »  S Springate, UK

« Just a note to say we have a lovely time on our holiday last week. Terrific house and lovely village - very peaceful. »  Rob (Belper, UK)

« We were duly greeted and welcomed by Annie to your fabulous home. As you say not a holiday house but a home!
Annie gave us a tour of the property which exceeds all expectations and we are now fully into relaxed mode. I am especially impressed with your art collection. »  Rathbone family

« We just wanted to thank you for a lovely week. Your house is beautiful and your village is charming. The children had a wonderful time watering the garden too. »  Wallin family
