La Forge is located only 7 miles from the heart of Saumur yet situated in tranquil rural location. This makes it an ideal location for those interested in exploring the many historic and even prehistoric sites that are found throughout the Loire. It also lies at the centre of the fabulous Loire wine area with delicious sparkling whites; delicate rosés and spicey reds. The area is good for cycling and walking with quiet country lanes and the national forest only 500 metres away. Riverside water parks with beaches are within easy reach. The nearby town 1 mile away has a small supermarket, bakers, butcher, bars, hairdressers, garage etc....La Forge is located only 7 miles from the heart of Saumur yet situated in tranquil rural location.
