Only 6 kilometres from the river Loire, Sheena & Joel welcome you to their house and garden on the banks of the river Authion, mid-way between Angers and Saumur, in the outstanding Regional Natural Park of Loire - Anjou - Touraine.

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of May while visiting family in the area.
From the moment we arrived at the bed & breakfast we felt welcome and at home.
Very nice rooms and surroundings, just a half an hour drive to Angers and even less to visit some of the sights in th
