4-star self-catering holiday rental in the center of Fontevraud
The perfect setting in which to relax and share in the joy of life and in the appreciation of historic buildings
Less than 2 hours from Paris, the Loire Valley is known as France's Valley of the Kings as it was the chosen home of French royalty for centuries. It has always been a place of residence, pleasure, refinement, art and spectacular gastronomy.
Whilst you are visiting the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site, why not take a pause and stop over at La Samsonelle gite in Fontevraud L’Abbaye, a stunning village ideally located for touring the Loire valley region, only 15 minutes from Saumur. You will discover a place where the words gentle life and charm are given their full meaning and where its inhabitants are happy to share with you the French country life with the gentle flow of the Loire river, beautiful landscapes and still active troglodytic villages.
Sylvie and Mark welcome you to an extremely well located and cosy residence, less than 2 minutes walk away from the magnificence of the royal abbey, in the heart of the historic village.
This tastefully restored country gîte is a traditional tuffeau house set in a delightful property including a landscaped flower garden looked after by Sylvie who is a passionate gardener.
In the spring and summer, the pond is a central feature with its waterlilies, flowers, fish and frogs.
Couples or families up to 6 people are welcome for a week, a short break or a couple of nights. (For short stays 2 extra people can be accommodated on the bed-settee in the lounge).
We are fluent in English, French and German (even a bit of Spanish) and will do our utmost to welcome you and make you feel at home.
