La Boulangerie with 500 year bread oven is on one side of the courtyard, attached to the historic 16th century entrance arch with the pigeonier above. You just walk up a slight incline to the Pool Garden to enjoy the lawn, flower beds and fruit trees and the 12m x 5m swimming pool with steps and patio providing a wonderfully relaxing area for swimming, sunbathing and alfresco dining. All set in our 2 acre secure walled gardens with lovely views of the surrounding fields of sunflowers, vines and forest. It is an ideal base to be able to explore all that is offered in the surrounding region. Super for couple with young child (baby), cot, high chair provided....La Boulangerie with 500 year bread oven is on one side of the courtyard, attached to the historic 16th century entrance arch with the pigeonier above.

Thank you again for the kind review, it was a pleasure having you stay. Saumur has seen the centre renovated, the theatre is now open and Place Saint Pierre is looking fantastic. 2014 and 2015 produced great wine harvests. Hope to seen you in 2016.
