You will find La Grande Maison set peacefully amidst the vines, in the French Parc Naturel Regional Loire-Anjou a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the perfect base from which to explore the local wine growing region, relax in the glorious gardens, picnic in the vines, take a bike ride or enjoy a wine tour. Within the walls of the 17c fortified farm is the Manor House, an ancient bake house, the gate house and shepherd’s house, extensive wine caves and a partially hidden troglodyte chapel. An unusual and unique B&B, bed and breakfast holiday location near Saumur in the Loire Valley France for those with a sense of adventure and history. Wine tours available if pre-booked.
With a degree in Hotel Management Micaela spent the first 15 years of her career in the hotel industry, working for Hilton International in London and Europe. Following this she set up a successful computer software company Wallchart International in the UK as Sales and Marketing Director and developed international business with major corporate clients. Micaela has also passed the WSET Advanced Certificate (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) examination and has excellent knowledge of local Loire wines and producers. In her spare time you'll find Micaela out on the Loire river sailing their Toue Cabanée, an authentique Loire wooden boat.
Saumur is a commune in the Pays de la Loire department in western France. The historic town is located between the Loire and Thouet rivers, and is surrounded by the vineyards of Saumur itself, Chinon, Bourgueil, Coteaux du Layon, etc. which produce some of France's finest wines. We sit in the heart of the Saumur Le Puy Notre Dame vineyards close to the beautiful villages of Montreuil Bellay and Le Puy Notre Dame and the more functional market town of Doue en Anjou. Plenty of local restaurants and wineries to visit during your stay. Boat trips on the Loire River are a must as are the many chateaux that can be visited locally.
