The Experience

This lovely old townhouse was probably built to entertain visiting generals as it is close to the old cavalry school Saumur was once famous for. You enter from the street and climb several huge stone steps for the entrance hall – you would not be surprised to find a valet waiting for you. Interiors are elegant, warm and very much in keeping with the fin de siècle style. You’ll feel rather grand in the bedrooms, particularly the master Bourgueil with its antique bed and private terrace.

Beside the smart dining room is the gleaming kitchen which serious cooks will approve of. Find plenty of space for preparation, a big oven and hob and doors to the courtyard for al fresco dining on balmy days. You are left a welcoming bottle of wine, and a hamper with local produce including biscuits and chocolate.

Wander next door to a Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Gambetta, or just a bit further for rue St Nicolas for a choice of eateries.

Reviews

A perfect base for a group to discover the wonders of this extremely rich part of the Loire. The delightful owners have lovingly restored and modernised the house but its oh-so-very French Belle Epoch charm is still omnipresent.

Location

The neighbourhood

Saumur is built on the banks of the Loire, along which you can take river cruises. At its high point is an ancient fort topped with a medieval château. The Cadre Noir elite riding school still gives dressage shows. Visit the fabulous 'Combier' distillery and taste Triple Sec, explore the Saturday food market at Place St Pierre, stroll the endless side streets to discover new restaurants.

Local points of interest from Mandy Murphy

  • The Saturday market in Saumur is one of the best we've found in France and brimming with delicious local fresh produce. We love to start the day with a coffee and croissant at Saint Amour cafe and watch the market area come alive.
  • The centre of the town is a 5 min walk from the house. There's a lovely walk up to Chateau de Saumur, taking you through the charming streets, through the square and up the hill, where you will be greeted with breath taking views of the Loire River
  • If you are a foodie, Saumur has a great choice of restaurants to choose from. Some of our favourites are L'escargot (as good as a Michelin), L'Essential (with its chateau views) Keating (French steakhouse) and Bistro de la Place, La Comedie, french cuisine
  • We are wine lovers and Saumur region is not short of great vineyards to visit, many only a short drive away. Some favourites are Domaine Fillatreau, Chateau de Chantres, Chateau Villneuve, Arnaud Lambert
  • World class heritage sites such as Fontevau Abbey are a short drive away and Saumur boasts of some unusual museums, Musée du Champignon and Musée des Blindés (large collection of armoured tanks)
  • And let's not forget the beautiful castles in the region, so many to see for a wonderful day out, such as Chateau de Villandry with its amazing gardens, Château du Rivau is dog friendly and Château d'Ussé which inspired the fairytale 'Sleeping Beauty'

Introducing

Mandy Murphy

Mandy and William hail from Ireland. They fell in love with this area while on holiday and wanted the challenge of bringing this grand old dame back to life. They love historic buildings, antiques, decoration and entertaining. They work in London but come here when they can. You let yourself in with a key safe, otherwise a friendly local guardian, Paul, can welcome you.
