A friend and I (from Quebec) stayed at the Domaine des Gauliers for 3 days in February 2012 and what I can tell you is that you don't have to be in the Louvre museum to find treasures. There is one, close to the city of Angers, in the Loire Valley, that deserves to be discovered. Set in the French countryside, surrounded by vineyards, the Domaine des Gauliers is simply fabulous! The rooms are immaculate, the grounds are inviting, and the bread, croissants, and pain au chocolat delivered daily by a local bakery are mouth-watering. But most importantly, the hosts Denis & Vincent were very friendly and so helpful in making our stay memorable. Following their suggestions we greatly enjoyed a winetasting at the winery next to their property and ate a wonderful French meal in a small 20-seat contemporary restaurant set in the middle of vineyards a few minutes away by car.
Our stay at the Domaine des Gauliers helped us get a sense that we were not simply observing but actually experiencing French culture. I want to go back !
