Village House in Maine-et-Loire, a cottage in Loire

2 couples after more room and privacy? A master bedroom downstairs with en-suite shower room and a double bedroom with adjacent family bathroom upstairs provide that extra space. A £100 reduction on the listed weekly rates for a booking for up to 4 people, except in July and August.

Family or friends on holiday together? As well as the 2 bedrooms described above a third 1st floor bedroom sleeps another 2 adults in extra wide single beds or let up to 4 children have an extended sleepover as this room has 2 more single beds - perfect for larger groups!

All bedrooms are spacious and stylishly furnished with quality linen, plenty of storage, bedside lamps and extra throws for the beds. Beds are made up for your arrival and ample towels are provided, including swimming towels.

This idyllic retreat has a large dining room with open fireplace. Dine around a large oak farmhouse table in front of a roaring log fire on cooler spring and autumn evenings. Tableware for up to 12 is stored in an antique cupboard. A comfortable seating area with sofa and armchairs is ideal for pre-dinner drinks.The adjoining kitchen is well equipped for serious cooks, has all appliances and a fridge/freezer large enough to avoid shopping every day!

An airy sitting room on the 1st floor is the ideal spot to spend a lazy afternoon buried in a book - there's a small library - or catch up on a film or the news on the tv/dvd player (UK free to air channels).

Outside the pretty enclosed garden has terraces offering sun or shade, an orchard with an above ground pool (7.3 x 3.75 metres) and a courtyard with parking for several cars. Have an early morning coffee at a table in the shade, dine under the parasol at the table seating 8 on the sunny terrace and supervise children in comfort at yet another table by the pool. With a barbecue, deckchairs and badminton, boules and croquet sets you will have plenty to entertain you from dawn to dusk.

This sympathetically restored house oozes character and is quietly tucked away behind the church at the heart of Le Guédeniau. The charming village benefits from a bar/restaurant (with a great lunch menu), a bakery open 6 days a week, a renovated water mill where regular exhibitions are held and a park around the millpond. With the surrounding forests and quiet country lanes - ideal for walking or cycling - la France profonde is on the doorstep, yet vineyards, chateaux and historic towns and cities, such as Angers, Tours and Le Mans aren't far away.

It's four miles to the market town of Baugé (with excellent golf course), the renowned zoo at La Fleche is just 12 miles away and Saumur, home to sparkling wine houses, the Cadre Noir (National Riding School and exhibition team) and its fairy tale chateau high above the river Loire is a half hour drive.

Babysitting, Saturday supper packs & catering available.
