La Maison Rouge is a beautiful Loire cottage set in magnificent woodland. Immaculately presented, it comfortably sleeps up to six/seven people, plus cot. Having been lovingly restored and renovated, La Maison Rouge retains many of its original features and is extremely well furnished, combining traditional France with today’s essential living.
From the entrance of Maison Rouge you enter the spacious open plan hallway and kitchen/dining area. The well equipped kitchen has an electric oven and gas hob, as well as a microwave, washing machine and dishwasher and two fridges and freezer. The table in the kitchen can seat up to ten people and a stable door leads out to the garden.
In the garden which is surrounded by lovely woodland, there is a swimming pool with a private terraced area and lawns. The swimming pool is equipped with a safety alarm and decorative fencing provides extra peace of mind.
Back in the house the large sitting room has a wood burning stove, making La Maison Rouge as welcoming in the winter months as it is in the summer. In the sitting room is a TV with DVD and UK satellite and also a CD player, iPod compatible speakers and a selection of books and games. Patio doors lead out onto a private rear terrace with an awning where there is a very large table which can comfortably seat 6-12 people. A BBQ is available for guests’ use.
Bikes are available for use by guests at both La Maison Rouge and L’Ecurie, as are outdoor games including boules, table tennis and a trampoline with a safety net.

In the hallway a feature staircase takes you upstairs where there are two further bedrooms each with en-suite shower rooms and WCs. The master bedroom has a king size bed and dressing area with ample wardrobe space. A door from the master bedroom leads out onto a balcony area with table and chairs. A second internal door leads to the en-suite facilities.

Located in a peaceful setting on the edge of the Forest de Monnaie, 20 minutes from the Chateau Town of Saumur, La Maison Rouge is situated in the heart of the picturesque Loire Valley.
There are more than 300 chateaux and castles in this area. Among the most notable are Chenonceaux, the famous Chateau straddling the River Cher about 1 hour from Tours; Amboise, the beautiful chateau built by Charles VIII in the 15th Century which has magnificent views over the River Loire; Chinon, which dominates the town, is now ruined but provides a fascinating history back to the days of Jeanne D’Arc; Azay-le-Rideau has a pretty chateau that straddles the river Indre just south of Tours; and Usse, the fairy-tale chateau west of Tours, which is said to be the home of Sleeping Beauty!
Nearer to our properties in the region of Maine et Loire are the chateaux of Saumur and Le Lude which provide a great insight into life during these periods.
Take the tourist route around the vineyards of the Loire valley, close to the girls are the St. Nicholas de Bourgueil and Bourgueil appellations and a little further to Chinon and Saumur – all of which are well worth a visit.
SAUMUR – is a beautiful white town built in the chalky white tufeau stone that is characteristic of the Loire Valley. One of the region’s most fashionable areas, it has a magnificent chateau overlooking the river Loire and has a good selection of shops, boutiques, markets, and fabulous restaurants.
