The Experience

Relax on the restaurant terrace and raise a glass to the view: the languid Loire meanders below and the valley reaches into the distance. As for dinner, it is the creation of gourmet chef Richard Prouteau, served quite rightly in a dining room fit for kings.

Guarded by stone lions, the 10th-century exterior of the priory has not changed. In contrast, the annexe next door is brand new. Bedrooms are divided between the annexe and the main house, 50m apart, but those in the house are unquestionably the finest: luxurious, flamboyant and huge fun.

Enjoy tennis and mini-golf in the grounds, stroll down to the little village, borrow bikes and follow the river. Be sure to pop into Saumur for its Saturday market, discover the restaurants and galleries of Angers, and go home laden with the local Crémant.

The neighbourhood

Riverside villages abound including Chenehutte below, perfectly placed for visiting the glorious chateaux of the Loire. You can set off on foot, bike or car for sleepy Le Toureuil, sophisticated Saumur, the city of Angers and the Chateau of Brissac - all are a 15-minute drive. Visit too the famous vineyards of Coteau du Layon and Saumur-Champigny.

Local points of interest from Solene Dubois

  • A wonderful terrace to have dinner, lunch or breakfast depending on the weather.
  • A refined decoration in the Empirique Style of Napoleon from his travels in Egypt.
