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.

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.
