7 bedroom Villa, sleeps 19 with Pool

Located in: Les Verchers-sur-Layon »
Owner's description:
In a beautifully secluded part of the Loire Valley, surrounded by countryside dotted with wineries, this 17th-century Manor House offers the perfect retreat within striking distance to some of the gems of this wonderful region.

Exposed beams, original stone walls and rustic fireplaces speak of the manoir’s history, while modern amenities and furnishings offer guests comfort and warmth. Four spacious bedrooms in the Manor House accommodate up to eight guests, while the adjoining, newly renovated cottage sleeps an additional seven across three bedrooms. For larger parties, a gite can be requested for an additional three guests, allowing up to 19 guests to stay over the three homes.

Perfect for a pampering holiday or perhaps a unique hen party, the owners can arrange for an in-house masseur to make the most of the massage table in one of the beautifully designed bathrooms for a moment of pure relaxation surrounded by candles and music. Weddings can also be arranged with wonderful grounds suitable for a memorable outdoor reception tailored to your needs.
Fantastically secluded with glorious grounds and a heated salt-water swimming pool, spend the days relaxing in the outdoor lounge followed by an evening dining al-fresco by the barbecue and playing your favourite tunes on the duke box – you may never want to leave! 

Just a few minutes by car brings you to the local historic town of Doué la Fontaine, well known for being the rose capital of Europe. Just outside you will also find the Bioparc, an animal park in a troglodyte site which provides an immersive experience amidst lush vegetation and waterfalls.

It’s just under a 30-minute drive to the vibrant town of Saumur, resting on the Loire River, with its excellent shops and restaurants, the famous equestrian school Cadre Noir and the delicious sparkling white wine which you can sample in the area. Visit the fairy-tale château, take a boat up the Loire river or hire canoes.

That said, you needn’t travel far to experience the true character of the Loire Valley with villa’s historical architecture and 17th century charm.

villa is just 5km from the town of Doue La Fountaine, a commune steeped in history and known as the rose capital of France, within a region reputed to be the number one producer of the flowers in Europe, exporting them since the 18th century.
Within 4km sits the famous Bioparc of Doue la Fontaine, an animal park located in a shelled sedimentary rock quarry, providing a unique and immersive experience amidst lush vegetation, watered by numerous waterfalls.
The vibrant town of Saumur (26km), resting on the Loire River, has a reputation for its excellent restaurants, its famous equestrian school Cadre Noir and the delicious sparkling white wine which you can sample in the area. Visit the fairy-tale château, take a boat up the Loire river or hire canoes. Other highlights nearby include a visit to the Fontevraud Abbey (36km) or the fascinating Troglodyte caves in Rochemenier (10km).
Heading north, cross the Loire River and you’ll reach the city of Angers (46km) on the River Maine with its magnificent 13th century castle and vibrant cultural and student vibe. Explore the narrow cobbled streets of the old town, full of cafes and restaurants and visit the largest tapestry in the world.
There are plenty of hiking routes in this area or you can hire bikes to follow some wonderful trails both locally and further afield such as parts of the Loire à Vélo, a cycle route which follows the Loire river.
The Manoir is around 3 hours drive from Paris, or the TGV takes 1.5 hours to Angers (46km), either from the centre of Paris (Montparnasse) or directly from Charles de Gaule airport. The Chateau is then 40 mins drive from Angers and car hire is very easy from the station.
This lovely and characterful wedding venue retains plenty of 17th century charm and is beautifully secluded within glorious grounds in the lush “Garden of France”. There’s an in- house masseur to help you relax before the big day and the Manoir is very near the famous rose capital of Europe, Doué-la-Fontaine, just in case you would like some fragrant blooms for the tables at your outdoor event. The surrounding countryside is packed with vineyards and the numerous local wineries are there to top up your celebrations. For that extra touch of grandeur, hire a horse and carriage or even arrive for your stay by helicopter!
