The original Farmhouse dates back to the 18th century. A traditional
French Longiere has the benefit of very few stairs, only two leading
into the bedroom area and three from the kitchen to the dining room.
The tiles in the lounge, kitchen and one of the bedrooms are original
and unique for the area. In the lounge we have installed a wood
burning fire which gives heat and a warm glow on the cooler evening in
spring and winter, comfortably furnished and has TV and videos, hi-fi
and cd’s, plus books and games for all ages. The oil fired central
heating provides warmth throughout the gite.



Anjou has a separate lounge, dining room and kitchen as well as a
separate bathroom and toilet. Also two double bedrooms and one twin
room. Cot and travel cot highchair and pushchair are also available on
Anjou has its own spacious private lawned garden overlooking the
vineyards complete with BBQ, garden furniture, child’s picnic table etc….
The heated swimming pool is positioned in the top garden which soaks
up the sun from morning to evening. There are sun loungers, table &
Chairs and also a children's unsupervised play area with swings,
toddlers slide, climbing rope plus many trikes and other outside
children's toys.
Why not try the fruit from our apple, pear, plum and apricot trees or
the strawberries and raspberries.

Town of Saumur.
ANJOU is surrounded by vineyards, sunflowers and maize. The quiet
lanes make it an ideal situtation for relaxing, walking, cycling and
bird watching yet only a few minutes drive from the large supermarket

Fontaine is also known as the City of Roses and one has the
opportunity of visitng the famous rose gardens and even buying some
wonderful rose scented products. Doue also boasts the world famous
