Peaceful & secluded yet only a mile from Saumur

18th century farmhouse with 10m x 4m heated swimming pool & 3 acres of well maintained grounds – sleeps 9 + 1 cot, only 1½ miles from the centre of Saumur, and a few minutes walk from the Loire river.

“Just wanted to let you know that we had the most fantastic holiday. Your house is even more beautiful than we imagined from the pictures and was absolutely ideal for us. You have equipped the house perfectly. We have done many self-catering holidays over the years and we can honestly say yours is the best. There was not one thing that we found it lacking in. So thank you very much for 'sharing' your home, I think I'd want to keep it all to myself!”

We believe you will find La Métairie a home from home. The house itself is very tranquil, light and airy. All rooms are spacious and we have selected quality furnishings, whilst the garden is simply amazing.

• Spacious, tastefully converted 18th century farmhouse with original oak beamed ceilings and exposed tuffeau stone walls.
• Extremely peaceful, completely secluded with walled gardens and electric gates.
• 10m x 4m heated swimming pool, with large south facing sun lounge area.
• Sleeps 9 people plus 1 cot in 4 spacious bedrooms. Two double bedrooms, one bedroom with two single beds, and one bedroom with three single beds.
• Large play area for the younger children, and an annexe with a pool table, table football and a beer fridge for the not so young.
• Beautiful open plan living and dining rooms with large stone fireplace and Jotul wood fire, oak and leather sofas and a magnificent 10 seater solid oak dining table. Both rooms open onto the patio area of the garden.
• Large bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC. Second shower room and two more WCs.
• Fully fitted kitchen, with dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, oven and hob. Utility room with a washer/dryer.
• Three acres of grounds completely walled and fenced in. One acre is woodland, with the rest of the grounds being laid to lawn, with several mature trees, shrubs and fruit trees, and a working well.
• Our “secret garden” is separated from the main grounds by our driveway, is secluded and is often in shade. Perfect for anyone wanting to be outdoors, yet out of the glare of the sun, especially small children and the elderly.
• In addition to the swimming pool, outdoor entertainment includes a swing, rope ladder etc., a basketball ring and two football goals - there is enough space for a full size football pitch!
• At the side of the house there is a patio with tables, chairs and a chiminée BBQ.

As part of our determination to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible, we provide you with an Information Pack. This provides details (often with web links) of activities, places to visit, leisure pursuits, wine house and restaurants, as well as maps detailing several Châteaux in the region.

A highly recommended gem

By Steve and family on 20-May-2023

We booked this property for a three generation holiday and we must say were impressed with the whole package, from a very informative website through to excellent communication with the owners Tom and Kelly. The property was everything that was promised and more. It was spotlessly clean and prepared for our arrival along with a very welcome bottle of wine already chilled in the fridge. Our two year old grandson loved the playroom complete with motorbike rocking horse and of course the excellent swimming pool. With Saumur being only a few minutes drive away we enjoyed the petit train ride around the city, visited two local vineyards to stock up and also paid a visit to Chateau de Breze which was amazing with unrestricted access to the underground caves, moat and unusual bathrooms and kitchens. It was a real treat to be able to see behind the scenes and how life was lived in the past. If you are thinking of visiting the area we would highly recommend using this delightful property as your base.

A really lovely house close to The Loire

By Simon on 18-Sep-2022

Within only a few hundred metres of the banks of The Loire, La Métairie is a spacious, traditional house set in a very large garden with a totally private pool. Secluded and yet only 5 minutes drive to the outskirts of Saumur, and the same to the huge Intermarché supermarket and fuel station, it is tastefully and fully furnished with every amenity you might need for a wonderful family holiday. For the cooks in the party, the kitchen is excellent and fully equipped. The owners have gone out of their way to ensure every base is covered and information about the house and the surrounding area is meticulously provided. The chateaux of The Loire valley are many and varied with the undobted star of them all being Chenonceau, formerly the property of Henry II who gave it to his mistress as a gift! For history and art lovers it is unmissable. We can thoroughly recommend La Métairie to anyone looking for a relaxed get-away-from-it stay in the beautiful Loire region.

Brilliant stay

By Lynne Teague on 08-Oct-2022

Could not have wished for a more lovely Gite in the Loire Valley. The Gite was really well equipped and the grounds were just outstanding. We had family visiting and friends and all was so easy and comfortable which made every ones stay perfect. Cannot recommend this Gite enough. From booking and dealing with Tom and Kelly was easy and they helped with any queries we might have had. Lots of info on the area in the Gite.
