Abbaye Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Fontevraud-l'Abbaye, Maine et Loire, Pays de la Loire
Abbaye Cottage lies at the heart of the medieval Abbey village of Fontevraud -final resting place of the Plantagenet Kings Henry II and Richard Coeur de Lion.

The detached cottage is set back from the main road and is accessed through a private locked gate and cobbled walkway. There is access for unloading/loading and easy car parking can be found within a few hundred metres.

Village shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance and the entrance to the 35 acre Royale Abbaye is just across the road.

The quaint cottage is a centuries old farm building newly converted in 2005 and retains much of its original character with tuffeau stone walls and ancient oak beams complemented by high quality furniture and luxurious fittings. The Cottage is one of only a handful in the area to have been awarded a 4 star rating from the Anjou Tour...

A True Hidden Gem! Completely hidden away and just about as private as you could wish for. Luxurious two bedroom cottage with charm and class, stayed for Christmas week and could not fault either the location or the cottage.

About the neighbourhood
There are lively food markets during the day and many craft markets during the summer evenings too.

The area is at the centre of Loire wine making and has four recognised wineVines in the Loire regions: Anjou, Saumur, Bourgeuil and Chinon. In every direction you will pass through acres of vines and wine producers invite you to taste at every corner. This is fine, and if you enjoy wine, we recommend you simply try one or two. However, if you want to learn more about the variations between the regions -and taste the differences- we recommend a visit to the Maison des Vins. Here you can explore the different wines with knowledgeable friendly staff. Once you have a clearer idea of what you really like then you can head off to the wine growers own cellar to meet the producers and try in more...
