Book Now & Grow Green: 3 Trees Planted with Every Booking!

This Earth Day, join our mission to plant 3 trees for every booking made between April 22nd - 28th, 2024. Let's make a sustainable impact together! Learn more about our journey here >>

This elegant 15th century manoir, partially moated and set in the centre of 52 acres of beautiful park and fields, has been lavishly decorated with exquisite antiques, custom sofas and chairs, Persian carpets, Chinese porcelains and oil paintings. A 15th century gigantic working fireplace warms the evenings and the private exclusive large swimming pool cools you during the day.

Flowers grace every room and if you feel like stepping up to the plate (or the stove) yourself, the kitchen is kitted out with every modern convenience and stocked with all herbs, spices, vinegars and oils.

Take a ride out into the countryside on the bikes provided or fire up the barbecue in the garden - either way, you'll be in a calm, relaxing and carefree atmosphere for children and adults alike. The nearby city of Saumur provides additional charm and and a great range of dining options, and Tours and Angers are around an hour by car for a bigger city experience. The train station in Saumur is only 12km from the house, with connections to Angers and Paris.

Manoir Anoir is located just minutes from the banks of the Loire River, in the Maine-et-Loire department close to the border with Indre-et-Loire, 12km from the beautiful riverside town of Saumur and under an hour by car from Tours.

You can stroll or cycle to the local village, around 1.5km away, where you will find a grocery store, boulangerie, tabac, service garage as well as two restaurants and a bar. Keen cyclists note that the Loire à Vélo passes nearby on the other side of the Loire River (through Candes-Saint-Martin, 5.5km away) and there are many popular walking routes across the area including trails from the village itself, a wonderful way to discover the local landscapes and Loire River.

Elegant Saumur lies only 12km by car, a vibrant town known for its picturesque riverside setting, impressive château and delicious sparkling white wine which you can sample in characterful bars. The weekly market on a Saturday morning is a great way to stock-up on a range of locally produced delights and there are plenty of shops and charming restaurants dotted across the town’s medieval lanes. Look out for guided tours or even performances at the Cadre Noir, the famous national equestrian school in the heart of Saumur.

Closer to home, spend time in Candes-Saint-Martin (5.5km), one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ where the Loire and Vienne rivers converge and home to the Saint-Martin collegiate church. Montsoreau (5km) is another gorgeous spot on the banks of the river with its 15th century château or drive south-east towards Chinon (23km) with its atmospheric lanes, castle, wine caves and surrounding vineyards. In the summer there are canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Loire and Vienne as well as boat trips from Candes-Saint-Martin.

Europe’s largest abbey, Fontevraud-l'Abbaye, is only 8km by car whilst the fascinating troglodyte caves at Rochemenier are around half an hour away.

Of course, there are so many iconic Loire valley châteaux to choose from within an hour such as Château de Villandry (45km), Château Azay-le-Rideau (42km), Château du Rivau (32km) as well as Château Royal d'Amboise and Château de Chenonceau, both just over 90km away beyond the historic city of Tours.

Region

A region doesn’t get to be called “The Garden of France” without being pretty special, and the Loire Valley is just as luscious and beautiful as its nickname would suggest. There’s countless acres of beautiful woods, vineyards and farmland that produce some of France’s revered ingredients and delicacies, and a wealth of history and beautiful architecture that demands and rewards exploration. Whether you’re heading off with the family, friends, or both, our fantastic portfolio of Loire Valley villas and chateaux means you’ll find fantastic, comfortable and quirky accommodation no matter your preferences.
