The Experience

Wander among the roses in the big tree’d garden. Chat with your hosts on the long veranda. A delightful pair, they give you local treats and home jams at breakfast, and aperitifs in the evening.

Inside, château-like reception rooms open one into another. Glass doors to glass doors, billiard room, dining room, salon…like an indoor arcade. Family portraits follow you everywhere – yet it’s wonderfully un-grand.

Set off for the little city of Angers (20km), known for its historic tapestries and exceptional museums. Book a table at the much-loved Cantina Café, where the food is traditional. Return to swims in the peaceful pool. Dinner is a feast of home-grown delights – from guinea fowl to lamb.

Reviews

Francois and Jacqueline made us feel very welcome. They are charming people who go out of their way to ensure all their guests are comfortable and well informed. Breakfasts are excellent, rooms inviting and Jacqueline's typically French dinners are to die for!

Nigel, Jersey

Utterly charming people and a lovely house. Jacqueline cooked a wonderful supper for us, laid out on the veranda overlooking the garden. An early beer on arrival was appreciated after a long drive. Breakfast, too, was superb and the whole visit was memorable. Plenty of parking space within their grounds.

Christopher, Isle of Wight

We were made very welcome on arrival by Jacqueline and Francois, who immediately opened up the pool for a refreshing swim after our long drive. The large bedroom and bathroom was lovely and over looked the garden. Jaqueline cooked us a delicious meal and catered for all our dietary needs very well. Francois joined us for an aperitif. We would recommend a stay here and would come again if we were in the area. Thank you

Elizabeth, Milton Keynes

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful old house in the middle of the countryside. Francois and Jaqueline were so wonderfully warm and welcoming and we were treated to a fantastic home cooked 4-course meal (the table d'hote is well worth having!) and a lovely breakfast. The rooms are spacious, airy and full of light and we had a very peaceful night's sleep in the huge, comfortable bed. Its very pleasant to wander around the garden before dinner and an aperitif with your hosts. We were fortunate enough to see the roses in full bloom which add even more charm to the pretty setting.

Kate, Dorking

A delightful place to stay with warm and generous hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble. Do order dinner if you can - you won't regret it. My partner and I were treated to an aperitif with Francois and Jacqueline in their beautiful dining room where we chatted with the convivial couple. This was followed by a sumptuous four course meal with wine (Jacqueline is a superb cook). Breakfast was equally enchanting and generous.Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable with a splendid view . All in all a wonderful experience and highly recommended.

Helen, Stratford-upon-Avon

I would be very happy to spend a night here. The owners are warm and charming and they really 'make' the place.

Nicky, Sawday's inspector

A lovely place and the de Berus are perfect hosts. Madame is a wonderful cook in the traditonal French style and the 30 euro dinner (including aperitif and good local wine) is a terrific bargain. We stayed just one night but wished we could have stayed longer.

John, London

Such charming and welcoming hosts, it was difficult to leave. We had enjoyable aperitifs on the veranda followed by an excellent home cooked dinner and a good nights sleep.

Bruce, London

Splendid, sophisticated surroundings complemented by a warm welcome from our charming hosts. Our most comfortable room looked out over beautiful gardens. The evening meal was preceded by a local aperitif with our host and hostess and served in their historic dining room hung with family portraits. A memorable stay!

PETER

We arrived after a 5 am start from UK and were delighted with the quiet ambience of La Rousseliere. Francois and Jacqueline were delightful and welcoming hosts. We walked along the River Loire and were loaned a map by Monsieur. Breakfasts and dinners (we stayed 3 nights) were superb. Homemade jams at breakfast and local recipes for dinner such as the Salmon in a green sauce. Exquisite - we shall return!

Fiona

François is probably the most quietly charming Frenchman I have ever met. The welcome he and and Jacqueline gave us was wonderful. He gave us great advice on cycle routes, lent us a book and recommended some great vineyards where we could buy wine. The food was delicious. We stayed an extra day as we were enjoying it so much. Lovely peaceful swimming pool too.

Bridget

Wecomed by M and Mme Berú, who were charming and enthusiatic. Lovely large room with "period" whatever that was decor. Excellent dinner, but a bit too much to eat. Jolly chat. Good nights sleep. Local knowledge high -eg walks by Loirs, islands to see, etc. Booked lunch for us next day at Le Favre d'Anne in Angers, which i could recommend to anyone and most highly. A pleasant and interesting visit

Brian

A warm welcome on a cold wet night got us off to a good start. We thoroughly enjoyed our three days here with such excellent, helpful hosts, who knew all the best things to see. It was a special treat to enjoy Jacqueline's excellent home cooking as a change from eating out. They were also very encouraging to us in our attempts to speak French!-

Location

The neighbourhood

The B&B lies in pastoral countryside not far from the small town of La Possonnière. It's a day trip to the Renaissance châteaux of the Loire, however, the less-known, lived-in Château de Serrant, 4km, is a walk or a cycle ride away. Equally close is the Moulin de la Roche, a restored 'monument historique'. Don't miss lovely Béhuard (10km): a rare sanctuary town set on an island on the river Loire.

Local points of interest from François & Jacqueline de Béru

  • The private 'Chateau de Serrant' was built in XV° & XVII° and contains a magnificent and exceptional collection of period furniture. It is one of the most beautiful chateau of the Loire Valleyand is classified 3*** by 'Guide Michelin' and
  • Angers boasts a 13th century fortified castle, with many gardens and the famous tapestry of the apocalypse.
  • Loire Valley... Vineyards... Colours of the sunset on the Loire... pretty Villages... quiet Walk along the Loire... large and peacefull View... local flower and vegetable markets...
  • The Puy du Fou.

Introducing

François & Jacqueline de Béru

Jaqueline and François, grandparents of a happy tribe, are kind, gentle, charming hosts. They love nurturing their garden and their guests, and breakfasts and dinners are a treat. They also enjoy sharing their knowledge of the green Loire Valley. With its mild climate, it's known as the 'Garden of France.'
