Peace, beauty, charm.
A return visit to the chateau, this time as a couple. We came back because of the location close to the Loire and civilisation whilst in beautiful grounds set apart from the rest of the world. A stunning pool, privacy, well equipped accommodation. Great and safe cycling, charming villages, vines galore. Great for couples but also families. Host Catherine is so helpful - her English puts my French to shame!
Review of our stay
It was a quiet and beautiful place to stay.
The owner Catherine was welcoming and generously opened up the gardens around her house for our use. The pool was lovely.
We had a very relaxing stay.
Lovely property, beautiful and quiet location
We had a wonderful stay in this cute cottage. Only one room, but with lovely seating arrangements outside, who needed any more. The bed was comfortable, the surroundings just beautiful, and we explored them on bike and on foot and in the car. The hosts were wonderful. it could not have been better. Remember however to ensure you know what is open when and book the restaurants in advance!
Thank you Penny for your nice review.
You are right for the restaurants which are, most of the time, closed on Monday and quite often on Sunday evening.
I shall precise the openings on the list.
Best wishes !
This is one gem of a gite.
Could not have enjoyed it more. Having breakfast to the morning song of golden oriole and turtle dove in the surrounding woodland, a leisurely dip in the shared pool in the afternoon, an evening firing up the barbeque consoled by a cool local chenin.
Plus hosts Catherine and Phillipe were most welcoming and helpful. They produce a good evening meal in the chateau too when the barbeque seems like too much effort.
We have not travelled extensively in France. But over the past 20 years or so we have been to, and stayed in, a fair few places. Most good to excellent; two less so. The Loire has turned out to be our favourite spot and the bit between Angers and Saumur is probably the cherry atop the icing on the cake. Fig Cottage is a great place to hang out for a week or two in a superb location. OK so it is not big,. But it has all the mod cons one needs. And let's face it who needs big on holiday. Could not recommend it more.
I would be bitterly disappointed if we did not return.
What a wonderful comment !
We are absolutly deligthed to make you and Jacqueline so happy !
Fig Cottage is not big but if you need more space Mulberry Cottage offers much more space !
Have a very nice summer, observing the lovely birds around and we would be very happy to welcome you again !

Quiet and stylish
The accommodation is basically one room, with a bathroom cube in one corner. It contains almost everything you would want. The site is very quiet and private, and part of a bigger chateau site, which is very impressive. The bed was very comfy. The bathroom cube is a bit dark, but there was always hot water. The hostess is very friendly and business-like, and speaks good English - which helped my very poor French.
For people who aren't used to the French way of life, we found finding places to eat very difficult - local restaurants were open on only selected days and times, and lots of them were already pre-booked. It's worth doing some research and booking restaurants ahead.
I'm always wary of saying I'll go back to a place, but we enjoyed our stay and are thinking of returning.
Thank you Helen.
You are right about the light in the bathroom. This is a bit dark. We shall improve it with new lights.
About restaurants, the second part of september is more quiet but we have still many visitors from all over the world and the restaurants should be aware of these potential customers.
In the french countryside, most of the restaurants are closed on Sunday evenings and Monday
By chance le Petit Blaison at the village and le Bistrot de St Saturnin, 6kms from Blaison, are opened most of the week.
I shall make a list of a dozen of restaurants with openings. It will help a lot !
Thanks again for your advise.
Nous avons passé un séjour parfait. Le cottage est très confortable et les hôtes sont accueillants et disponibles sans être envahissants, le bon équilibre. Nous reviendrons.
