We enjoyed every part of our stay with Damienne and Michel. We do not speak any French and Damienne was very sweet to speak with us in English and translate for Michel. We stayed in the Romantique room, which is actually its own stand alone structure, with a separate entrance - very private! We were traveling with our 2 month old son, so this was perfect for us. The structure dates back to the 12th century but has been amazingly restored by Michel. The shower was better than ours at home! Damienne provided a baby bath and a changing pad without us even asking. We wandered into Rigny Usse for dinner and were in awe of the castle and church on a hill - not to be missed! Also - a five minute walk from the house is a charming church (Notre Dame) dating from the 12th century. Breakfast was great - loved the rhubarb and cream. Our only regret was that we could only stay one night. We will definitely return when we have more time.

What a great little find this place was! It's in central Saumur, around 15 minutes walk to the chateau but the house is on a quiet road and is very peaceful. David and Vincent's home is lovely, clean, bright and comfortable. Both of them are very friendly and great hosts - and Vincent is a chef so if you elect to have an evening meal there, you can be assured of a tasty treat. There is a secure garage if, like me, you are travelling by bike. Both hosts are both very accommodating and welcoming - for example you can put a load of washing on if you need to. They have a pool table and British/US TV channels if that's your thing. It was an excellent stay, exceptional value for money and I would definitely return if I'm in the area again. Go!
My Wife and daughter stayed with David for one night while watching a horse competition. David and his partner were absolutely perfect hosts. The B&B was immaculate and faultless, the breakfast was superb. They also provided a very reasonably priced and excellent evening meal. We have taken a stack of business cards to give out to friends as we are going to highly recommend their place as a perfect stop over. The town itself is also stunning and well worth a weekend visit. Thank you both we shall be returning at some point for a weekend break
Lovely house set in a lovely area of town. Owners are very friendly and made us very welcome. Rooms are very nice and beds very comfy. A very reasonable price for the quality of our stay. Thank you Vanessa & Sam :)
