With a kitchen sensibly equipped for a family and a charcoal barbecue, you can choose to self-cater or you can eat out at one of the many restaurants in the surrounding towns and villages all of which welcome children. Bedroom 1 suits a couple in the French Kingsize bed (200cm long x 160cm wide). Bedroom 2 is just right for a couple and 2 children, with room for a travel cot (provided). The French Kingsize bed (160 x 200 cm) in Bedroom 2 can also be made up as 2 singles making this room great for up to 4 children (+ a baby in the travel cot). Although the swimming pool is not heated from mid- September until Easter, the Games Room is open all year for darts, pool, table tennis, table football and ballet barres. As owners we are a family that lives in France and we, and those who help in the maintenance of this property, can offer you knowledge of our area that only comes with having lived there for many years. If you have any questions that this information hasn't answered, please do just email us and we will always do our best to provide a full response. We and those who help us live near enough to the cottage to be helpful but far enough away to avoid being intrusive. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 50428558600013More

Interaction with guests
With the key safe you are free to arrive whenever you like after the gîte becomes available but either ourselves (Felicity & Chris) who live on the main site or British friends (Sue & Andy), who live nearby, are always available to answer questions or help if things go wrong or if you can't work the washing machine etc. We or our friends make a welcome visit the evening after you arrive and this can be a good time to ask questions! Once a week maintenance visits for garden and pool are also carried out by ourselves or Sue & Andy.

Thank you! We try to keep the cobwebs at bay - but other readers please be aware that some come back as quickly as we take them away! We will always pop over and de-cobweb you if needed.

About the neighborhood
Noyant, 4km away, and much larger than Auverse, has a good range of shops and a good, Friday market and several restaurants and cafés. Baugé 15min away is even bigger and has a pretty Château. Within a 30min drive from the cottage you can reach beautiful gardens, water activities, horse riding, golf, tennis, fishing , bowling and ice skating. Pretty places nearby include Gizeux, Le Guédéniau, Breil, Linières Bouton, Mouliherne, Le Lude, which is on the river Le Loir, and of course the beautiful town of Saumur. The larger cities of Tours and Angers are 1 hr away. The many restaurants within a 10 - 25 min drive all welcome families and Chinese, Italian and Indian restaurants are to be found among the traditional French ones. There are also many take away options nearby from gourmet French to Pizzas.
Getting around
A car is essential to get the best out of your stay at Le Muguet. Car Hire is available from Paris, Nantes, Rennes and Tours airports. Tours is the nearest - about a 50 minute drive from us. We are about a 40 minute drive from the nearest motorway which provides links with all major Northern France ports. Our Joining Information will provide you with detailed directions from Noyant, 4 kms from us and we can also be found using GPS. See our description of this destination for some of the many places that are a family-friendly 30-35 minute drive away.
