'De Tuin van Frankrijk' is beroemd om zijn legendarische kastelen (meer dan 150 van hen), die een boeiend overzicht van de geheimen te bewaken. Met zijn mousserende wijn en het prachtige platteland, zijn de perfecte plek om te rusten en te ontspannen.
De Primetiere Manor House is het huis van een 16e eeuwse edelman met een tufstenen (steen) toren op het zuiden voorkant en een ongebruikelijke geopend steen stap op het terrein. Dit gebouw is omgeven door 50 hectare van de velden, culturen en bossen.
Op het terrein is er: een zwembad (10 mx 5 m, gedeeld met de eigenaars), badminton, tennis een tafel met andere spelletjes, een speeltuin voor kinderen met een zandbak en een schommel.
What a glorious gem hidden in the countryside. Dominique, the owner, was lovely and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. My children loved her as much as we did. They fed and milked goats, talked to Nutella the pony, were introduced to the baby rabbits and held hour old chicks in their hands.
The house and pool are wonderful and in the most beautiful setting. The owners live on site but they are not intrusive in any way. The tiny village of Jarze has an excellent butcher and boulangerie and a small Proxi supermarket for essential supplies. The bigger town of Bauge has everything you need. There are daily markets in the beautiful surrounding villages. We went to La Fleche and Beaufort en Valle.
There is a games room with all sorts including table tennis table, a child's bike, go kart and scooter. It was a tranquil week in a perfect setting. We will be returning.
We had such a relaxing stay at la Primetiere I cannot recommend it enough. The hosts are warm, welcoming, yet inobtrusive and respectful of your privacy. Each morning we awoke to the pool being cared for, ready for us to enjoy again - a major draw for our 7 and 10 year old children! After a busy day out, or one chilling by the pool, we enjoyed barbequeues in the evenings whilst being entertained by the owners cats chasing butterflies, moths and crickets. Often we were provided with fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden - peaches, plums, courgettes - gorgeous! The property is full of character and was more than roomy enough for the 4 of us. If you're after a peaceful retreat with access to nearby towns and activities la Primitiere provides exactly that. We enjoyed canoeing down the Loire from Menitre (near Saumur) and hiring bikes at Gennes. We also visited the Troglodyte village & the BioParc zoo (fantastic) at Doue la Fontaine and several chateaux. The children also enjoyed visiting the owners' ponies, goat and sheep in the grounds to the rear of the property. A truly relaxing holiday - thank you!
