A gorgeous gite for rent in the heart of the Loire Valley,  Orchard Cottage is one of two properties on the same site that can be rented together or separately. (See Poplar House for a 4-bedroom option that would suit family or friends holidaying together).

For up-to-date availability, please go to Availability calendar.

This gite in the Loire offers:

  • 3 bedrooms, sleeping up to 6
  • Heated outdoor pool
  • Table tennis table, badminton and bikes available
  • New large beds, all with pocket-sprung mattresses
  • Satellite TV with UK Freeview / radio and DVD player

The gîte opens into a living/dining area with many original features including pierre apparente and tuffeau walls (both typical of the area), a terracotta floor and a small woodburning stove. There is a sofa and easy chairs, a satellite TV (with UK freeview TV/radio channels) and DVD player.

French windows open onto a private patio area, where you can sit and enjoy al fresco dining. From the lounge, you step through an arch into the fully-fitted kitchen, which includes a fridge/freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher.

The master bedroom is on the ground floor and has a king-size bed and en suite bathroom. Upstairs you will find 2 large bedrooms (oak and pine) and a shower room with toilet. Both bedrooms have 2 x 2m zip and link beds which can be configured as either twin beds or a superking double.

We have travel cots with mattresses, high chairs and buggies available, which may save some space in your car.

Heated outdoor pool

At the far end of the garden is a 12m x 6m heated outdoor pool. This south-facing area sees the sun for most of the day and the terrace allows you to relax in a tranquil environment, perhaps with just the sound of the birds and the rustling of the poplars for company.

Local Attractions

This area is great for cycling.  This property has 8 bikes including 3 for children for you to use.

The Loire valley is famous for its wine and châteaux. It is an historic area of France with much to see and do. The town of Saumur, on the banks of the Loire, has a rich, cultural background and an imposing château. Poplar House is approximately 25 minutes’ drive south of Saumur, surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers.

We (Emma, Tim and our young son, Ranulph) live on site and can help you or provide advice as required to make the most of your stay.
