“Excellent.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We were lucky enough to book a whole week at this ideal location on the recommendation of friends. It is the perfect place from which to explore the Loire. Mike and Tracey are born hosts and they made our stay memorable; filled with humour and gastronomic delights thanks to Mike's superb fresh breakfasts, gourmet evening meals and well-selected local wines. It is a hell of a lot more than a guest house and more personal and relaxing than a hotel so if I had to think of a way to describe Les Peupliers, it would be "a welcome sanctuary". Our apartment was ideally furnished and immaculately clean and we looked forward to returning to it every day after exploring the region's many castles, towns and landmarks. The grounds are thoughtfully designed and offer a heated swimming pool; a luxurious pergola and more than enough seating arrangements to please those looking for privacy or sociable exchanges with other guests. Tracey and Mike have created something unique and superb.

Room Tip: It really doesn't matter which apartment/room you choose.

I visited Tracey for a hot stone massage arranged by a friend. I was given an excellent service and felt very refreshed. Tracey worked hard to give a personal and special treatment in very pleasant surroundings.

I was shown around the rooms which looked excellent. It looks like a place that would be worth a visit and has a lovely pool and a calm atmosphere.

This was my first visit to Les Peupliers with some lovely friends and I had a simply wonderful stay. Mike and Tracey are great hosts and so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. They have a passion for providing a top quality service, everything is of a really high standard, and Mike's 3 course dinners are absolutely delicious! The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean, and the beds really comfy. Mike and Tracey have lots of knowledge about the local area and recommended a variety of fabulous places to visit. One of the best, most comfortable, most relaxing short breaks I have ever experienced. Will look forward to returning next year!!

Tracy and Mike leave no stone unturned to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Our bedroom was delightful, spacious and very comfortable. Everywhere is spotlessly clean.The food cooked by Mike is equisite, each evening something different and always first class and yummy. Tracy and Mike are the
perfect hosts - they want you to have a good time and you do.

We stayed here with friends for 6 nights. Our Hay Loft room was fantastic, really spacious and airy with a comfy bed, lovely bathroom with separate shower and lovely piping hot water (which is not always the case in some places). Every word in earlier reviews about Mike and Tracey is absolutely right, they are so friendly and welcoming and do everything they can to make your visit a success. We ate "in" one night and the meal was wonderful and very reasonably priced at 30 euros per head. All our fellow guests were charming - note that this not the place to go if you want a breakfast without having to be sociable! A comment (not a criticism - there is nothing about Les Peupliers that merits any criticism) is that the breakfast gets a bit samey after a few nights but knowing Mike, if we had asked for something different, he would probably have rushed off to prepare a gourmet breakfast feast so we didn't like to!
In summary, go there!

Room Tip: Hay loft at 95 euros - go for it!

Nothing to fault about this place or hosts. They have thought of everything.
All you could possibly want at great value. Would strongly recommend to anyone who wants to explore this area. Excellent food, lovely peaceful surroundings, tasteful spotlessly clean spacious accommodation both inside and out. A place to relax and take your time. Mike and Tracy are a hard working duo who try to care for your every need.

We really couldn't recommmend Les Peupliers highly enough. We stayed for seven nights (had planned for five but an unfortunate problem with our car kept us there another two, which turned out to be a blessing).
You could not ask for more hospitable, helpful and genuinely lovely hosts than Mike and Tracey.
We stayed in one of the Hayloft rooms, which were slightly more expensive than the others but certainly worth it. The room was spacious but cosy with a lovely bathroom and shower.
We ate dinner there on three evenings and each night were treated to a delicious three course meal with local and home-grown ingredients, given an interesting twist by Mike's expert cooking. You cannot leave without at least a couple of bottles of MIke's homemade balsamic vinegar and oils.
Saumur and the surrounding region has so much to offer that we could easily have spent another week there and not been in want of things to do. Having lived there some years now, Mike and Tracey are very knowledgeable of the area are happy to recommend things to do and places to see.
One of the great highlights for us was the wine tour which Tracey arranged for us, an absolute must if you have the time.
As mentioned, we had a spot of car trouble while we there. Our hosts could not have been more helpful and generous in helping us deal with the situation.
Thank you Mike and Tracey for an unforgettable stay!

Room Tip: Definitely worth spending the small bit extra on the Hayloft rooms.
