Shakespeare Lodge is a charming self-contained unit with an additional studio. The ensemble is part of a typical farmhouse construction in Anjou, located 250 kms southwest of Paris and 30 kms north of the historic city of Angers. The renovation has been carried out to maximize comfort and warmth while retaining many original features. Your hosts live in the eastern barn wing of the house, however your privacy is ensured by a separate entrance and courtyard for outdoor relaxation. The property is perfect for golfers, with Anjou Golf & Country Club next door (3kms); for visits to the renown Lion d'Angers equestrian events and of course, for use as a base from which to visit local castles and gardens as well as those further afield in the Loire valley.

About the neighbourhood
Our area includes a number of historic family-run castles such as the beautiful Plessis-Bourré which was completed in five years by Louis the eleventh's finance minister. It is five minutes drive away. Tallest in France, the Brissac castle is 45 minutes drive to the south, across the Loire and into wine-growing country. In the city of Angers, which is 30 minutes directly south, the 13th century fortress of Angers stands as a breath-taking example of military architecture. It is home to the largest narrative tapestry in France. Closer to the lodge, the village of Cheffes is linked during July and August to Angers by a river boat service. We have several bicycles available.
