Vernantes, Maine et Loire, Pays de la Loire
The gite is in the grounds of our holiday home. The area around is fairly flat and makes for lovely walking or cycling and in the barn there are some old bicycles for guests to use.
Positioned midway between Tours and Angers this makes an excellent base for sight-seeing in the area or for house hunting.
The property is situated about 2 miles from the town of Vernantes that has an excellent restaurant, 2 bakeries, butcher and a small grocery. A mile further is a supermarket that also sells fuel. This is now open on Sunday mornings up to 12.30. Opposite our house is a farm with a small farm shop which opens on Fridays and by appointment the rest of the week. The lovely town of Saumur on the Loire River is about 12 miles south of us and that has a train station from which you can take a TGV to Paris.

Thanks for that. We now have WiFi at the property, sorry it wasn't there in time for you. The gite is advertised for 2 people so using the sofa as a bed is not usually an issue but we will look into that.
