“Stunning scenery in a tranquil village”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Have recently arrived back from Annie's House.

We were greeted by Sarah Jane who welcomed us warmly to her Gite, The little village it's situated is just high enough to have spectacular views over the countryside from your own little terrace. We sent a couple of pleasant evenings walking from the house through the vineyards of the Samaur AC

The house was perfect for the two of us, small enough to feel intimate, but large enough to be comfy a good nights sleep was guaranteed. Sarah Jane was great at pointing put local interest and if you let her know in advance she will tailor that advise to you.

A great base for a a lovely stop over in this area of The Loire

“Beautiful La Bellevue”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This was our third visit to La Bellevue and it still remains one of my favourite places to visit. There are two gites at La Bellevue and both are truly immaculate. We have stayed in both and this year, as last year we stayed in Annie's House. It is very well presented with every thing you could ever need for a self-catering holiday. It is scrupulously clean and very comfortable. The gites are owned and run by Sarah-Jane and Gerald who just simply cater for your every needs. Sarah-Jane, who is English, is the font of knowledge of the area and is always available with information on places of interest. Gerald, who is French and a wine expert will take you on a wine tasting evening that will include an informative outline of the history of wine and step by step information on wine tasting - definitely not to be missed.

We will definitely be returning for our fourth visit next year.

“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.
