    We are a retired couple , living on the edge of Le Loir river , with a beautiful view of our village's castle . We have a water mill , a garden of flowers , a vegetables garden and orchard , a spacious yard along the river and several annex buildings.
    Our village is 2 hours from Paris and 30 minutes from Angers . Nearby you will have the opportunity to walk along the river , explore our town and its castle , as well as forests accessible by bike . You will also be able to boat on the river with our 2 paddle boats , and you can fish too.
