Description of Property: 2 storey house with large entrance hall. The house is in the small commune of Linières-Bouton, 6 km from the town of Noyant and 25 km from Saumur and the Loire. It is a complete renovation of an older building and is set on the edge of a wood just off a minor road. We have designed it specifically for a couple or small family who want spacious rooms and high-class facilities and to take advantage of its grounds and woodland setting. The entrance hall leads into a well-equipped fitted kitchen with a large central dining table. This room adjoins a lounge with wood-burning stove. Also on the ground floor (with a separate entrance from the hall) is a twin bedroom, with an en-suite shower room/toilet. Up the stairs from the hall you enter a salon stretching across the width of the house and with extensive views into the forest. If you have guests there is a double futon in this salon. From the salon there is direct access into the second, double, bedroom. The house bathroom (with bath, shower and toilet) can be entered from either the bedroom or the salon. The house has electric heaters in all rooms as well as a wood-burning stove in the salon. From the outside of the house there is entry into a cellar, which is useable for storage. There is a VCR, DVD and free Wi-Fi.
Outside Amenities: The private grounds are large enough to play football, cricket, badminton etc and there is a full size table tennis table. The outside terrace is shaded by a trellis roof covered with vine, roses and honeysuckle: the bbq is adjacent to this. The garden has direct access into the forest, which has a mass of well-maintained paths to explore.
Surrounding Area: Linières-Bouton has a 13C church which is worth a visit and, being in the Loire, a château - our house is surrounded by the woods belonging to the latter. There is a restaurant which is open at lunchtime - though its workers’ menu is so popular you may have difficulty getting a table.
The nearest town is 6 km away at Noyant, with restaurants, bars, shops and a supermarket - and a good Friday morning market. There are similar facilities a few km further away at the ‘twin’ villages of Vernantes and Vernoil.
A 20 minute drive takes you to Rillé, where you can spend a very pleasant day, with lots of walks around the lake and nature reserve.
There is a pretty route through the typical countryside of our area going north-east. Ten minutes takes you to Mouliherne (one of several local towns with a twisted church spire), then through one of the great forests of France (the Forêt de Chandelais) to Baugé - this is one of our favourite towns in the area.
Saumur is 30 km away - with its well justified reputation as one of the prettiest Loire towns, with lots of tourist attractions - amongst them the château, military academy with its world-famous Cadre Noire horse school, the extraordinary mushroom caves, and visits to the producers of the best sparkling wine outside Champagne.
At a similar distance is Bourgueil. Here you can enjoy a dégustation at one of the many vineyards; but make sure not to miss the best market in the region (every Tuesday). The Loire is just on the outskirts of the town, and there are lots of drives meandering along its banks. Several of the most famous châteaux are within a half hour drive of here - Chinon (which, with its great battlements, is a child's delight); the romantic jewel of Azay-le-Rideau; Ussé, of Sleeping Beauty fame; Villandry, renowned for its formal flower and vegetable gardens. We particularly like Langeais - more battlements and a drawbridge, as well as a Sunday market.
If you fancy the bright lights, then our two major towns are Angers and Tours - both less than an hour’s drive from the house - or go by train from Saumur - theatres, clubs, restaurants and, of course, shops galore.
