Les Bouchets

Le Vieil Baugé, Maine-et-Loire
Bed & Breakfast

Hosts who are passionate about food - they used to run a restaurant - and a cheerful, warm house make for a delightful stay


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


It’s spotless now, with all mod cons, gleaming antiques, open fires and vases of fresh flowers. The house was a ruin when the Bignons found it but they managed to save all the old timbers and stones. The result is a seductively warm cheerful house with bedrooms cosy and soft, two upstairs, one with an entrance off a garden where swings invite children to play. Passionate about food, they used to run a restaurant where Michel was chef; note the coppers in the kitchen/entrance hall, and memorabilia in the family sitting room. Géraldine, bright, friendly and organised… and serving beautiful homegrown or local food and the wines of Anjou.

We received such a warm welcome from Geraldine and Michel. The place is a haven of peace with the veg patches in the garden, wild flowers, and views overlooking the endless countryside. I'd love to stay here to recharge the batteries and experience the real France.

Lillie, Sawday's inspector

A wonderful warm welcome, convivial French conversation and a beautiful evening meal. Very comfortable bedroom looking out onto a beautiful garden. We hope to visit again.

Anne, Nr bedford

Wonderful! Geraldine and Michel are superb hosts and chefs. The room was lovely, they even put our wine in their fridge, when they found it! Faultless


We have stayed here thirty one times in the last few years. The Bignons are great friends and so hospitable

Guy, Sothampton

Our second visit to the charming "Les Bouchets"! Comfortable, clean, warm rooms and superb breakfasts and dinner. We will be back again!
