About the neighbourhood
Saumur and it's nearby villages boast an extraordinary number of attractions to suit all interests and ages but if you just want a luxury break where you flop by the pool with a good book; it can offer that too. Principal among the attractions are the National Riding School, the caves of the sparkling wine producers, the mighty Loire and the majestic chateau. Shopping and dining can both be accomplished in style and the cultural scene is an avant garde success. Chateau de Jalesnes is nestled in a forest close to the village of Vernantes; some 15-20 minutes drive from the centre of Saumur (depending on tractors). The village shop-keepers and businesses will welcome your patronage very much and will go out of their way to help you.
