Peaceful Loire Holiday Cottage Rental in Fontevraud - l`Abbaye, France- La Goupiliere

In the heart of the Loire Valley, which has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site, are two comfortable and fully equipped gites - La Cachette and La Goupiliere - each sleeping four in two bedrooms. They are a few minutes walk from the beautiful 12th century Abbey in the village of Fontevraud L’Abbaye, which is centrally located for visiting the sites of the Loire Valley, the chateaux, the vineyards, and much more.

Within five minutes drive of an 18 hole golf course, ten minutes walk from shops and restaurants, located between two major Loire towns (Saumur and Chinon), this is an ideal base from which to explore the delights of the Loire Valley. Good food, excellent wine, remarkable scenery; you are sure to enjoy a relaxing visit at these picturesque gites.

There is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, all linen and towels are provided (these may be changed, on request, for stays of longer than a week), a stairgate is fitted, and a cot and highchair are also provided.

A barbecue is provided. Up to two dogs are permitted, but there is an additional charge of £10 per dog for extra cleaning. The gite has its own garden area, with a gate to provide security for children and animals.

The gite is a few minutes walk from the centre of Fontevraud. There you can find a bakery/patisserie and a small grocery (epicerie) which also sells bread on a Monday, when the main bakery is closed. There are nine restaurants in the village (opening times vary) ranging from a basic bar to fine dining, and there are numerous others in the area.
