Situated half way between the towns of Angers and Saumur (30kms), our log cabin in Ambillou Chateau is within easy access to many beautiful sites and is an ideal base to explore the Loire Valley.
Located in the serene gardens at the rear of our (300m2) garden, our cabin is 25 square metres and is equipped with a sofa, table and chairs, induction hot plate, microwave oven and fridge, and an adjoining bathroom with shower and toilet. Internet access is available (with or without wifi).
There is a choice of sleeping area; a mezzanine with access by a ladder, or in the living area where there is a very comfortable sofa bed. During the winter the cabin is heated by a log burning stove (believe me, you won't be cold!) It's well insulated which makes it warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
The table and chairs under the pine tree outside can be used for meals in summer and there is a hammock under the trees if you fancy a siesta. A barbecue is also available for use.
The Loire Valley is a UNESCO world heritage site and is an area of diverse attractions and landscapes that today make it one of the most popular places for tourists in the whole of France. It is probably best known for its architectural heritage, most famously its chateaux.
Several beautiful, historic towns, including Angers, Saumur and Chinon, are situated within easy driving distance and are well worth a visit.
There is also much to do in the surrounding area during your stay, including hiking, swimming and bike riding, and visiting the numerous impressive attractions which will both entertain and inspire you.
We are fairly laid back but one thing we do ask is that there is no smoking in the cabin - we'd like to keep it smelling of wood and not woodbines!
Getting here is a piece of gâteau!
