La Grande Maison is situated in three acres of wooded grounds that lead down to the river Dive. Perfectly situated for exploring the Loire Valley. We have the Bike Barn for storage of cycles or if you don't want to bring your own we can have a bike delivered to our door for you. The Bike Barn has workshop facilities for bike maintenance.

Our river is ideal for some fishing, or painting or for a bar b q. We have a games room with pool and table tennis.

We can organise a wine tour of the vineyards of the Loire or point you towards some of the delights that the Loire has to offer.

We had a fantastic stay at La Grande Maison with 3 small children (6, 3, 8 months) in a 3 bedroom suite. From the gorgeous room which everyone slept really well in to Ben's incredible knowledge on the local area and French history to Billie's scrumptious cooking. We will be back!

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. We really enjoyed having you here and look forward to welcoming you and your beautiful family again in the very near future. A bientot Kind Regards Ben & Billie

Stayed with Ben for a couple of days.A wonderful friendly reception and a great property with tame ducks semi tame grounds and a river. Very attentive hosts, plenty of tips on things to do and see and a great breakfast. Not a lot in the actual village, but plenty in Ludon which is just 10 min down the road. Yes...

Although we only stayed 2 nights Ben and Billy were very warm, welcoming and informative. The room was fine for 3 adults staying and the grounds and surrounding area were lovely. The breakfasts were delicious in a lovely dining area. It was also great to be able to sit outside.

About the neighborhood
La Grande Maison is situated between the market towns of Loudun and Thouars and a short drive from Saumur or Chinon.

Saumur is situated across the Loire. Half the town is on the south bank while the remainder is on an island. The town is very beautiful in particular the Chateau on the top of the hill looks out over the Loire river and is a great place to enjoy stunning views. Saumur is the home of the world famous Cadre Noir and the National Equestrian school.

A short way upstream are the troglodyte caves of the Loire Valley. Some are used as cellars and for wine production including Gratien & Meyer producers of the very refined sparkling wine of the region. You can enjoy a very interesting tour of there underground caves and then after enjoy a tasting. Ask for your free ticket whe...
