In the middle of a small historic town, with its outstanding castle, surrounded by numerous character residences. All shops and amenities are to be found in the town and can be reached on foot. 35 minutes from Angers, 30 minutes from Saumur and some 20 minutes from the banks of the river Loire. The A11 and A85 motorways are within easy reach.
The mansion house
This residence, constructed from lime rendered stone and quarry blocks, comprises three buildings that have been redesigned over the centuries. On the road side, the garden level and the first floor, under attic space topped with a slate roof, stand over a lower section which houses a garage, a boiler room and a cellar. The rear facade of the central section is constructed from freestone, as are the framing around the openings, the quoins, the cornices and the roof dormers.
The old historic town forms a magnificent setting for this luxurious mansion house which is still one of its gems. Most of its rooms have superb architectural features, which have lost none of their splendour over the centuries, beginning with the old stone curved “potager” (a secondary hearth where soups and other previously prepared dishes were cooked on embers) which just exudes character. This home not only looks out over the town via its tall, aligned windows but also nestles in its quiet garden which can be reached all on a level from numerous rooms. The local surroundings form an authentic land characterised by its verdant, rolling countryside, its vast forests and its old villages with their wonderful churches, a guarantee of pleasure and the quality of daily life.
