Being in the midst of a wine producing area there are many winemakers nearby, one of which is literally around the corner! La Petite Maison is close to 2 good sized towns with good amenities, and is only a short drive from a number of Loire Valley Chateaux and a first class restaurant. The Puy du Fou is around 45 minutes drive while the Vendee coast is approximately two hours or so away. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a television, dvd player and playstation available for when the weather is poor. There is an iPod/iPhone docking station and numerous indoor and outdoor games. We also have a small separate utility room which provides storage for a tumble dryer and sun loungers. Please note, as the bedrooms are built into the eaves there is limited headspace upstairs and a steep staircase, so we recommend that for people with limited mobility this may not be the ideal environment for them. We also provide a high chair and travel cot for very young children and wifi is available. More

About the neighbourhood
The house is about 30 minutes drive from Saumur in an area that is peaceful and the pace of life slower. Local people are friendly and helpful and there is always time to sit in a local cafe or bar for a drink or bite to eat in the nearby towns of Vihiers and Doue La Fontaine. There are many local winemakers offering good quality wines at low prices. The Rose d'Anjou is a local speciality and is a great drink when fresh from the fridge on a hot summer's day. Summers are hot, with long days of cloudless skies, while winters tend to be cool and wet - not unlike an English winter only shorter! For those cooler days we have wood burning stoves in both the kitchen and living room to keep you cosy and warm. The main towns and cities, such as Saumur and Angers offer lots of opportunities to shop ...
How to get there
The area is easily reached from the channel ports. From Calais it is approximately 6.5 hours via the autoroute, whilst from Caen you can reach the house in around 3 hours. If you catch the overnight ferry from Portsmouth you can be unpacked and ready to explore by mid-morning the following day! The autoroutes are fast and traffic-free and are relatively cheap to use. We can supply a route guide to get you there without getting lost along the way.
