LA MAISON FLEURIE
La Maison Fleurie (4 persons)
is situated in the sleepy village of Recouvrance approximately 6 miles from the centre of Saumur. It is a charming carefully restored 2 bedroom farmhouse which enjoys the use of a pretty shaded terrace set in an enclosed courtyard.
The house comprises of a fully equipped kitchen and spacious dining-room/sitting-room with a large tuffeau stone fireplace on the ground floor. Upstairs are two generous sized bedrooms one with twin beds, the other with a double bed. These share the use of an elegantly styled bathroom.
Allonnes is the nearest town and is only 1½ miles away. It has 2 boulangeries, bars, a butchers shop, traiteur (handy for take-away French dishes), a newsagent/tobacconist, haidressers, garage and, most importantly, a Carrefour supermarket.
Saumur, which is within easy range, is an ancient bustling market town that sits astride the Loire. It is the jewel of the Loire and is well worth a visit if only for a glimpse of the wonderful imposing Chateau that dominates the landscape for miles around. The town itself boasts a good selection of gourmet restaurants as well as an extensive range of shops and hypermarkets.
