La Maison Rouge is a beautiful Loire cottage set in magnificent woodland. Immaculately presented, it comfortably sleeps up to six/seven people, plus cot. Having been lovingly restored and renovated, La Maison Rouge retains many of its original features and is extremely well furnished, combining traditional France with today’s essential living. Located in a peaceful setting on the edge of the Forest de Monnaie, 20 minutes from the Chateau Town of Saumur, La Maison Rouge is situated in the heart of the picturesque Loire Valley. Maison Rouge can be booked separately, or can be taken together as one booking with its neighbouring cottage, L'Ecurie, making it ideal for two families or groups of 12/14 wishing to enjoy a holiday together yet with the privacy of individual holiday homes.
From the entrance of Maison Rouge you enter the spacious open plan hallway and kitchen/dining area. The well equipped kitchen has an electric oven and gas hob, as well as a microwave, washing machine and dishwasher and two fridges and freezer. The table in the kitchen can seat up to ten people and a stable door leads out to the garden.
In the garden which is surrounded by lovely woodland, there is a swimming pool with a private terraced area and lawns. The swimming pool is equipped with a safety alarm and decorative fencing provides extra peace of mind.
Back in the house the large sitting room has a wood burning stove, making La Maison Rouge as welcoming in the winter months as it is in the summer. In the sitting room is a TV with DVD and UK satellite and also a CD player, iPod compatible speakers and a selection of books and games. Patio doors lead out onto a private rear terrace with an awning where there is a very large table which can comfortably seat 6-12 people. A BBQ is available for guests' use.
Bikes are available for use by guests at both La Maison Rouge and L'Ecurie, as are outdoor games including boules, table tennis and a trampoline with a safety net.
Also downstairs, off the sitting room, is a beautifully beamed room that features bunk beds providing a sleeping arrangement for two singles and an en-suite shower room and WC.
In the hallway a feature staircase takes you upstairs where there are two further bedrooms each with en-suite shower rooms and WCs.
The master bedroom has a king size bed and dressing area with ample wardrobe space. A door from the master bedroom leads out onto a balcony area with table and chairs. A second internal door leads to the en-suite facilities.
Completing the layout, is the second upstairs bedroom featuring two single beds and with ample floor space where a single futon chair provides bedding for an additional guest and/or cot. An internal door leads to the en-suite facilities.
La Maison Rouge is very child friendly; a stair gate, high chair and travel cot are available as well as a baby bath and potty that can be provided on request.
