Saumur townhome description

This bijou townhouse is ideally located in the centre of the historic area of Saumur. It has been sympathetically renovated, highlighting the unique atmospheric features of a tuffeau home. All bathrooms have been newly installed with a contemporary style using the Asian-inspired 'wet rooms' or 'douche Italienne'. The kitchen is well appointed with new appliances including the retro-style Smeg refrigerator and range-style stove. The master suite has a walk-in wardrobe (closet) and large en-suite bathroom. All bedrooms are spacious and have dedicated bathrooms. The whole house is light and airy and features a beautiful walnut staircase, original fireplace and oak beams. There is a walled courtyard with garden furniture, ideal for eating or drinking al fresco.

Step outside the door of the garden and walk up to Place St Pierre for an apperitif, lunch or dinner from the array of cafes and bistros. Our local boulanger (bakery) is also here for that morning croissant. If you have forgotten any groceries, there is a local supermarket less than 5 minutes walk away or for a bigger shop, the hypermarket is less than 5 minutes drive away. Saumur also offers some unique boutiques and antique shops and there is always the food market every Saturday morning.

This townhouse is ideally located for exploring the area, whether it be on foot or by car. There are numerous chateaux within an hour's drive away as well as a plethora of vineyards, most of whom open their doors for wine tastings and special events. The town itself holds numerous events throughout the year and the Tourist Office is a great resource to all that is going on in the area.

Other activities include balloon rides, canoeing down the Loire River, cycle rides as well as the spectacular Cadre Noir (horse dressage), which Saumur is famous for. The area is perfect for a relaxing vacation or for keeping you busy - whatever you are in the mood for doing.

So relax in our lovely home! It is the perfect setting for an enjoyable vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My husband and I originate from England but have lived in various places throughout the World, namely, Zimbabwe, Singapore, Philadelphia and Shanghai. We have two children and love to spend our time as a family in interesting and relaxing locations. One of these close to our heart is the beautiful Loire Valley area and in particular, Saumur. We have been travelling to Saumur for nearly 20 years now and never tire of its friendly atmosphere and way of life. We continue to explore the area each year and as our children have got older, there are more and more things to discover. We hope you will enjoy our home which is so ideally situated and which we have lovingly renovated in a contemporary style blending old with new, which we feel enhances its charm. We hope you agree.

Why the Owner Chose Saumur:
We had our first holiday together as a couple in Saumur, so this charming town holds many special memories for us. We held our wedding reception in this area and our daughter was baptized here as well. But this is not the only reason why we love to return to Saumur and the surrounding area. It has the ability to be totally relaxing and a great place to ponder all the happenings of the year while enjoying good food, atmosphere and the spectacular wines of the region.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
To be able to just walk to select your breakfast from the local boulangerie, or give the children that task! To be able to amble through the quaint cobbled streets which lends itself as our neighbourhood, or to walk to the market on a Saturday morning are just a number of pleasures you can enjoy from our doorstep. Our daughter loves to watch the cheval en calèche (horse-drawn carriage) that passes by our door in the summer. In the evening the 'clop' changes just at our doorway as they look forward to finishing for the day. We can go to Futuroscope, the zoo or the newly opened Terra Botanica and be back in time for dinner in the charming walled garden. The children can go to bed and we can enjoy a glass of wine while people watching from our balcony.
