“Just wonderful.”
Reviewed August 15, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

After a smooth journey from Dieppe by car, through the beautiful French countryside, the quaint district of Chaveignes was a welcome sight.
Pulling up to the gates of Angulus Ridet, I still wasn't prepared for just how lovely our destination would be.

Our hosts Alan and Sari welcomed us warmly and showed us around before allowing us to settle in and make ourselves at home.

Obviously the kiddies were desperate to get into the pool and despite arriving mid morning the sun was blazing and the temperature was high 20s so it was lovely for them to be able to cool off and stretch their legs at the same time.
Obviously they needed adult supervision so I had no choice but to join them while the others unpacked the car and popped to the Intermarche,a 4-5 minute drive away to stock up on basics and wine. (washing machine, bike, shoes and a chainsaw also available - think Tesco/ALDI/Argos, if you want it, they've got it!)

We had a restful couple of days with plenty of lovely foods, wines (Sari and Alan are happy and well qualified to advise on these matters!) Plenty of sun around (and in) the pool, the odd siesta, lovely food shared in the courtyard area with a glass of wine or a cold beer.

We decided it would be nice to explore some of the local area so we took a short drive into Richelieu and a lovely relaxed stroll around the town. It's not full of commercial chain shops so much as trimmed with classical art galleries with a sprinkling of small boutiques.And a fair few boulangeries, naturally.
The park of Richelieu was stunning in a very French manner. A dappled wander through the trees brings you out in to a vast green space with a small farm park sporting cheeky pygmy goats and various other small farm type animals. A lazy river meanders through the park, presumably where the old moat drew its water source from.
On another day we visited the town and Chateau at Chinon. We parked up the hill on Avenue Francois Mitterrand, near the Chateau and took a walk down Rue Porte du Chateau to the the glass elevator (no it doesn't go up and out I'm afraid) and popped across a small car park to the town where we had a bite to eat in a lovely restaurant. Then we took a wander along through the old town area before heading back up to the Chateaux where we paid a small fee for entry and were very pleasantly surprised to find that unlike a lot of tourist attractions in the UK, the quality of the facilities were very good. There was even a water fountain to rehydrate after exploring the beautiful grounds. If you have children you will walk up and down a LOT of steps, but it was really lovely and we all enjoyed it a lot.

We visited a huge supermarket on the way back called L'eclert I believe. Again, it had everything in the world so if you can't find it, that's where it'll be.

For excursions that was about the extent of it, although there was plenty more to visit in the area, our primary reason for getting away was to have an adventure with the kiddies and some fun in the sun. With all the games available to play at Angulus Ridet, we had something new to play every day although obviously the pool won best feature award as far as the little ones are concerned.

All in all a wonderful, comfortable welcoming place to stay and relax, over indulge and kick back. I would definitely recommend this place to families and larger groups (particularly if you wish to have a little space of your own whilst sharing the experience of a holiday with family or friends). It's sunny, beautifully decorated and finished, cosy and quiet.

Thank you both for a week full of wonderful memories and lots of laughs.

“Perfect place for getting together with friends and family”
Reviewed July 9, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

An absolutely beautiful building in a location that offered both peace and tranquillity along with plenty of restaurants, bars and a very well equipped supermarket within walking distance. We travelled with three other couples and enjoyed the numerous communal areas while also maintaining our privacy in one of the four well equipped and individually decorated farmhouse gites. We spent our time exploring the countryside (I wish I had my bike), swimming in the nicely heated pool, visiting the local markets and boulangeries and drinking far too much wine! A perfect place for exploring beautiful chateaus, lovely rural towns, wineries and spending quality time with friends and family.

“Perfect in every way!”

This beautiful collection of Farmhouse Cottages is located in walking distance (15 minutes leisurely walk) to Richelieu, a quaint, typically french, market town.
A supermarket is only a 10 minute walk away and sells everything every day.

The Cottages are renovated, furnished and equipped to an amazingly high standard.
We were there with friends and occupied all 4 cottages, which are all different in layout and furnishing but all equally as beautiful. All kitchens have everything - just like home (if not better)!

We liked the pool and the great sun terrace behind the cottages. The attention to detail and safety is commendable. We will come back with our children and grandchildren (2years to 28years) in August. Can't wait!
