Type: Holiday House
Property Ref: MAO2373
This is an elegant 15th Century Manoir, partially moated set in the center of 52 acres of beautiful park and fields, lavishly decorated with exquisite antiques, custom sofas and chairs, Persian carpets, Chinese porcelains and oil paintings. A 15th century gigantic working fireplace warms the evenings and the private exclusive large swimming pool cools you during the day. Flowers grace every room and meals can be provided by two New York chefs, though if you feel like stepping up to the plate (or the stove) yourself the kitchen is kitted out with every modern convenience and stocked with all herbs, spices, vinegars and oils. Take a ride out into the countryside on the bikes provided or fire up the BBQ in the garden - either way, you'll be in a calm, relaxing and carefree atmosphere for children and adults alike. The nearby city of Saumur provides nightlife and and a great range of dining options, and Tours and Angers are only 50 minutes by car for a bigger city experience. The train station in Saumur is only 12 minutes from the house, which itself is a mere two hours from Paris.
