Cottage overview - owner's description

L'Ombrière is a charming well equipped 200 year old cottage overlooking the Loire. Just 12 Km from Saumur it is ideal for exploring the Chateaux of the Loire and the many other nearby attractions.

This enchanting self-catering cottage occupies an elevated position with views over the Loire 100 m away. Approached through automatic gates there is spacious parking to the rear. A small cliff behind with woods above (accessible) provide a totally secluded patio area with tables, chairs, parasol and gas BBQ.
It sleeps 6 in comfort but there are beds for 9 - see below.

The cottage has been fitted out to a very high standard as a second home with new kitchen with full cooker & dishwasher, luxury tiled bathroom with shower over bath, separate WC, spacious living room with open fireplace, dining room, twin bedroom. Upstairs 2 double bedrooms, one with mezzanine over with miniature staircase to sleep a child, the other with luxury en-suite shower room & WC. The large landing provides a second living area with 2 sofas one of which converts to sleep 2. The downstairs facilities make it suitable for disabled or wheelchair users. Wireless Internet Access is available free.

We bought a house in the Loire because we love the area. There is a fantastic amount to do - a great zoo, gardens, children attractions, canoeing, museum, horse displays (le Cadre Noir at Saumur). We are still discovering new things after 10 years. We can get there in one day from home in the Midlands (12 hours door to door via Calais). It is the first region going south that has a significantly better climate than England and is a great area to indulge our passion for hot-air ballooning. It is so good for this (friendly farmers, great scenery) that the British National Championships have twice been held in the area along with the European Championships. The house ticked all the boxes - full of character, great location in a small village with friendly locals but amenities - shops restaurants etc all within easy reach.

The area is ideal for walking with a beautiful lake only a couple of km away. Fishing's available in the loire and tributaries.
