  • Beschreibung



    My husband and I live in our 18th Century family chateau, on a big property with lots of beautiful woods, river and gardens.
    Xavier is french, me American, we are both bi-lingual and Xavier speaks fluent Spanish too. Xavier is retired but keeps busy with varied business projects and taking care of his extensive rose garden.
    From May to October we offer traditional culinary holidays in english,

    Our goal is to bring the chateau back to it's former glory, little by little!

    We almost always have projects going on, indoors and out, restoration, gardening, woodwork, stonework, painting, cleaning out old buildings, etc. etc...

    We offer a private room in the chateau, wifi, good food and good company :)

    We are very respectful of the workaway agreement on hours 5/day 5 days/week.
    And at the same time are flexible for the schedule.

    We expect in return guests that are honest, respectful of our home and a job well done.

    Please have a look at our profile and let me know if you would like any more information and are interested in coming to stay. We'd be happy to have your help :)

    Hope to hear from you!

    Situated right on the Loir river near the famous chateaux of the Loire valley and a wonderful zoo (La Fleche). 25 minutes from Angers, 2 1/2 hours from Paris and equal distance from seaside : Saint Malo and La Baule.
    There are wonderful bike paths nearby, conoe-ing, fishing, and endless cultural and other activities in our region. You are free to wander and explore our extensive property with river and woods, or just chill out by the fire.
    There are buses and carpools daily if you wish to spend an afternoon in Angers, a great city with lots to visit. And we are happy to bring you along when we go into our local town (La Fleche).
    A car is recommended if you wish to visit the region and we have bikes available.
