Lovely fully renovated property dating from 1694 in the grounds of the main house. Shared heated pool in the large garden. Located between Saumur and Angers surrounded by many high quality vineyards.
Le Petit Pavillon is a small and charming renovated gite, probably the former grain-store of the manor-house. Well appointed living accomodation with living/dining room and corner kitchen, bathroom and mezzanine double-room. Guests have shared use of the heated pool (May/September) and hot-tub. They also have shared access to home cinema in a separate building and to a large common garden.
The property is located midway between Saumur and Angers in a national park, crossed by the legendary Loire, the Europes's last entamed river, listed as World Heritage by Unesco. Tuffeau stones and slate have lent their nuances to the somptuous buildings that stands on its bank. Renaissance chateaux, medieval fortresses, very highly regarded vineyards (Saumur-Champigny, Chinon, Vouvray, Anjou-Brissac, Coteaux du Layon, nice restaurants and typical food markets are within easy access. Local growers are always very pleased to welcome visitors for a tasting.
The cave galleries of tuffeau stone dug out of the rocks, formerly used to build chateaux are nowadays remarkable wine cellars, mushrooms cellars or troglodyte villages. The world famous zoo of Doue-la-Fontaine nested in a troglodyte cave is a few minutes drive away. Le Manoir des Rosiers is a great base to explore this part of the Loire Valley.
Le Petit Pavillon (property 80333) and the gite (property 26818) can be rented together or individually depending on party size.
Had a fantastic time, owners were really helpful with places to visit and restaurants to eat in.

This is a delightful place to stay and the owners are very charming. However, there is an adjoining property the pool is shared, not private.

We had a wonderful week at le Petit Pavillon at Manoir des Rosiers.
It was quiet and restful and the owners went out of their way to welcome us.
we would highly recommend a stay here and we cannot wait to return.
Clean tidy and very well presented. The owners could not have been more helpful with places to go and lots of things to do in the area.
Would definitely go back. If your looking for a relaxing break with great regional food look no further...
This is a lovely property in a nice quiet part of the Loire Valley.
for two people it is superb

They are experts at looking after you and they are just next door, discreets but always on hand if you need them.
