Located next to the Lac de Rillé , a lake designated by the Council of Europe as a special wetlands for migratory birds, and adjacent to mixed forest which stretches all the way to the Loire Valley, this is an ideal location for bird watching, fishing, cycling and walking, or canoeing on the lake. A fishing boat and bikes available for hire.
The 'gites' are part of the property called 'Les Mousseaux' an old farm and watermill on the River Lathan, which still flows through the grounds. Enjoy our wildlife pond and the hectare of permaculture gardens brimming with wildlife.
Or enjoy trips
out to the beautiful tranquil towns and chateaux of the Loire, like
Saumur, Langeais, Chinon or Chenonceau.
Appropriately called the 'garden of France', the Loire Valley is a patchwork of rich agricultural land and beautiful forests, where life seems frozen in time and local farmers still work the fields and forests in the old ways.
Enjoy the permaculture gardens and secluded picnic areas by the river, or relax among sub tropical plants in our orangery. If you rise early you may see the blue flash of kingfishers on the river, hear the golden oriole and hoopoes and watch the frogs and newts in the river and pond.
While both properties offer full facilities with free internet wifi, modern kitchens and bathrooms and all you would expect in a modern holiday location, here is is somewhere you can truly relax and escape.
There are barbecues for eating 'al fresco', picnic tables and chairs in several locations, and hammocks for a sunny afternoon relaxing in the orchard out of the hot sun.
