Holiday Rental House
Shakespeare Lodge is a charming self-contained 2 bedroom unit with an additional studio which counts as a third bedroom. Parents of young children need to know that the studio has a separate entrance, so travelling with three or four children for example means parents sleep in the studio, the door of which is two metres from the Lodge. The ensemble is part of a typical farmhouse construction in Anjou, located 250 kms southwest of Paris and 30 kms north of the historic city of Angers. Your hosts live in the eastern barn wing of the house, however your privacy is ensured by a separate entrance and courtyard for outdoor relaxation. The property is perfect for golfers, with Anjou Golf & Country Club next door (3kms); for visits to the renown Lion d'Angers (15 minutes drive) equestrian event...Shakespeare Lodge is a charming self-contained 2 bedroom unit with an additional studio which counts as a third bedroom.

The gorgeous village of Cheffes offers paddle boats and kayaks over summer along with river walks. Both your hosts speak English. More

Interaction with guests
We always welcome our guests and give a quick tour of the house and grounds. We know weary travellers can't wait to get the bags inside and relax so we try to be as efficient as possible about this. I'm happy to provide tourist information prior to your visit and if you have particular areas of interest such as history, the arts, or even aviation (our local museum is just fabulous) don't hesitate to ask.

About the neighbourhood
Our area includes a number of historic family-run castles such as the beautiful Plessis-Bourré which was completed in five years by Louis the eleventh's finance minister. It is five minutes drive away. Tallest in France, the Brissac castle is 45 minutes drive to the south, across the Loire and into wine-growing country. In the city of Angers, which is 30 minutes directly south, the 13th century fortress of Angers stands as a breath-taking example of military architecture. It is home to the largest narrative tapestry in France. Closer to the lodge, the village of Cheffes is linked during July and August to Angers by a river boat service. We have several bicycles available.
Getting around
The important thing is to anticipate your shopping. Our local supermarkets (Super U in Champigné, Tiercé, Chateauneuf and Cocci market in Cheffes) are open until 7.30pm. There are a few restaurants in our area, but the nearest sushi takeaway is in Angers! The lovely local fresh fruit and vegetable markets take place in Champigné on Tuesday morning, Tiercé on Wednesday morning and Chateauneuf on Friday morning. We are blessed with fantastic boulangeries in Champigné and Cheffes.
