Shakespeare Lodge and suite

Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Angers, Maine et Loire, Pays de la Loire
Shakespeare Lodge is a charming self-contained 2 bedroom unit with an additional studio which counts as a third bedroom. We rent the lodge and studio together as a package however, we do charge an extra 30€ a night for parties larger than 4 people. This gives greater flexibility; a party of four for example pays less than a party of six because the studio is not used. The ensemble is part of a typical farmhouse construction in Anjou, located 250 kms southwest of Paris and 30 kms north of the historic city of Angers. Your hosts live in the eastern barn wing of the house, however your privacy is ensured by a separate entrance and courtyard for outdoor relaxation. The property is perfect for golfers, with Anjou Golf & Country Club next door (3kms); for visits to the renown Lion d'Angers (15 minutes drive) equestrian events and of c... Read more

Interaction with guests
We always welcome our guests and give a quick tour of the house and grounds. We know weary travellers can't wait to get the bags inside and relax so we try to be as efficient as possible about this. I'm happy to provide tourist information prior to your visit and if you have particular areas of interest such as history, the arts, or even aviation (our local museum is just fabulous) don't hesitate to ask.

Just returned from a fabulous stay in Shakespeare Lodge. We stayed for 10 days with our two boys, who absolutely loved both the house and the pool, and the space to play! They also particularly loved playing with Maverick, the beautiful chocolate labrador. The house...More

Additional Rate and Availability Information
The nightly fee applies to the Lodge which houses 4 people. The third bedroom is in the studio which is right next door to the lodge with separate entrance, bathroom and lounge area. We ask 30€ per night per extra person, for the studio that is to say 60€ extra per night for the studio for 2 people. Shakespeare Lodge and studio are perfect for families with adolescents who want to hang out separately or for families travelling with grandparents who need peace and quiet time on their own. The fees include towels and linen. We kindly ask that the oven, fridge, cooking and kitchen items be left clean and tidy. In winter you can use the wood in the little storehouse next to the lodge. Our single beds can be put together as double beds, but please let us know in advance if this is what you would prefer. We have an outdoor heated pool which we lgenerally leave to our guests during the summer period. Unfortunately we cannot accept pets as we have a chocolate labrador. Please don&#39... more

About the neighbourhood
Our area includes a number of historic family-run castles such as the beautiful Plessis-Bourré which was completed in five years by Louis the eleventh's finance minister. It is five minutes drive away. Tallest in France, the Brissac castle is 45 minutes drive to the south, across the Loire and into wine-growing country. In the city of Angers, which is 30 minutes directly south, the 13th century fortress of Angers stands as a breath-taking example of military architecture. It is home to the largest narrative tapestry in France. Closer to the lodge, the village of Cheffes is linked during July and August to Angers by a river boat service. We have several bicycles available.
Getting around
The important thing is to anticipate your shopping. Our local supermarkets (Super U in Champigné, Tiercé, Chateauneuf and Cocci market in Cheffes) are open until 7.30pm. There are a few restaurants in our area, but the nearest sushi takeaway is in Angers! The lovely local fresh fruit and vegetable markets take place in Champigné on Tuesday morning, Tiercé on Wednesday morning and Chateauneuf on Friday morning. We are blessed with fantastic boulangeries in Champigné and Cheffes.
