A lovely Gite in a good location to visit some Loire Chateaux. The Gite was well equipped and spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Sarah Jane was a delightful host and made us extremely welcome and we would certainly try and stay again if we are in this part of France.
Our love affair with Le Grange d’Henri continues. This great little Gite is in a very quiet location, which is a perfect retreat for us as a couple to forget daily life, to relax and to recharge our batteries. Nonetheless if you feel the urge a short drive will take you to many of the best attractions the Loire has to offer. If this is what you like then it’ll be perfect for you too.
This is the second year we have stayed at The Barn, La Grange d' Henri previously we had stayed at Annie's House. Both Gites are excellent throughout and have everything you need. Located in peaceful surroundings near to Saumur. Owners Sarah-Jane and Gerald and their family will give you a warm welcome. A perfect holiday not to be missed.
We have firmly established a holiday at La Bellevue in our annual calendar, and every year it seems to get better. Both gites are immaculately presented, spotlessly clean and very well equipped, with as much privacy as you want. This year we stayed at La Grange d'Henri, but Annie's House is equally lovely. The location is perfect - quiet and peaceful with stunning views over the surrounding countryside yet close enough to everything that the Loire Valley has to offer. Numerous towns, villages and chateaux are within easy reach either by car or cycle.
What really sets this holiday apart from any other is the welcome from Sarah-Jane, Gerald and their whole family. They give 100% of themselves to ensure that their guests make the most of their stay. Their love of the region is unquestionable, and their passion can't fail to rub off on anyone who visits. The fact that they have so many repeat visitors is testament to the effort that they put in.
Highly recommended during any stay is the wine tasting tutorial with Gerald. He is passionate and incredibly knowledgeable and loves to share that with the guests in the troglodyte caves at La Bellevue. The sessions are hugely informative and enjoyable without the pressure to buy that you find in commercial degustations.
We would recommend a stay at La Bellevue without hesitation, and every year it is with a heavy heart that we drive away (our car laden with a few cases of wine recommended by Gerald!), but with a wealth of happy memories and the knowledge that we'll be back again next year.
Lovely well equipped gite with pleasant decked area for sitting out and admiring the view. The gite is situated in an ideal location for exploring the area around Saumur
and wider area.
The hosts could not have been more helpful including advice on where to visit and wines to try. Wine tasting is on offer and is a MUST.
A very delightful stay.
