“Perfect.”
Reviewed October 3, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

My Husband and I stayed for 3 nights in Annie's House, and wished we could have stayed longer.
The cottage is beautiful and positioned in the peaceful village of Pouançay surrounded by vineyards.
The cottage is extremely well presented, with a homely attention to detail. Alongside Annie’s cottage is a private and relaxing place to sit, and enjoy a glass of wine! The views are spectacular.
Sarah-Jane was wonderful, and welcomed us dearly. We were offered plenty of advice for day trips and places to visit. Given that we only had a few days, we delightfully followed this advice to the letter and Sarah-Jane even took time to print and highlight a map for us! We had an excellent few days and saw some beautiful places.
We also enjoyed a lovely evening at Gerald’s (Sarah-Jane’s husband) Bistro les Tontons, in Saumur.
Sarah-Jane and Gérald could not have done anything else to make this stay more perfect. We look forward to seeing them again.

“A Happy Place”
Reviewed June 6, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

My husband and I stayed at Annie’s House, Domaine de la Bellevue, for three weeks in May. This is a glorious spot. Roses and birdsong, beautiful vistas and country rambles were the backdrop to our holiday in this charming and comfortable gite. The house is inviting and spotlessly clean. The upstairs bedroom is airy and romantic; downstairs the living room and kitchen offer all the conveniences we wished for. The house is situated within a walled property, home to the owners and their children; we felt secure and welcome. This is a happy place, a fine base from which to explore the wines and countryside of the Loire Valley.

“Annie's House is a dream holiday in the Loire Valley come true.”
Reviewed June 2, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Annie's House is a delightful cottage in the village of Pouancay in the Loire Valley, beautfully presented and well equipped. However it is the friendliness and service provided by the hosts Sarah-Jane and Gerald that really set it apart. They have you feeling like part of the family.
We ordered the table d'Hote service the evening we arrived and found it a romantic and delicious introduction to the local food and wine. We would highly recommend Annie's House to anyone looking for a friendly and relaxing holiday in the Loire with an opportunity to experience French rural life.
We also would recommend the wine degustation course with Gerald. We learned a great deal about French wines and winemaking and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the same time. It is a great opportunity to learn from someone with excellent knowledge and experience in French winemaking with the fluency in English to be able to impart that knowlege so articulately to those of us of English speaking background. A great experience!
