A very special apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this 'boutique' apartment. The interior is amazing - the artefacts which adorn the apartment make it feel unique and there is a real sense of history to the place which seems fitting when you are looking up at the beautiful Saumur Chateau. The full length windows mean that you have a sense of the outdoors and it was lovely to have so many plants around, which is unusual in a holiday rental.

We found Gilles a very kind and attentive host and it was great to see him out and about around Saumur too!

Saumur is a wonderful town - and the location of the apartment means that you are right at the centre of city and riverside life. It is extremely handy for bike hire and also not too far away from kayak rental.

We will definitely stay here again when we return to Saumur.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Our visit had a bit of a rocky start as the housekeeper was not ready for us. After answering the door buzzer, she said she’d be down tout de suite, but left us waiting on the street for at least ten minutes, if not longer. However, after that less than smooth beginnng the rest of our visit was very nice.

The duplex is huge and three of us girlfriends were quite comfortable. It is an excellent location for exploring the Loire Valley. A fine boulangerie is a few doors down and lots of restaurants are close by. The view from the lounge is indeed of the castle and is lovely at night.

This is not an apartment to which I would bring children. Lots of hard, uneven surfaces and beams to knock one’s head on. It would also be difficult to keep curious hands away from the numerous antiques.

Parking can be a challenge but the restrictions on the paid lot right outside can be worked around with one’s day trips and outings.

I can definitely recommend this for your next visit to the region.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking care to appreciate. All make sense About children: certainly they would have to be respectful of antiques of mainly more than 400 years old. This is perhaps difficult. However it is good for children to have the smell of history. Sports is part of education. Understanding the past is too full of learnings. I am so sorry you hurt the beams. It remains nevertheless a lot of space ( more than 90% ) between 3 meters and 5 meters of heigth without beams. The best Gilles

Living in history

  • 5 of 5

To say Hôtel Particulier is eclectic is an understatement. It is strewn over three floors, littered with 16th and 17th century art and furnishings in an authentic 17th century apartment and blessed with modern conveniences. What a unique and wonderful accommodation. We throughly enjoyed our stay here. The views of the Castle were impressive, however, once visiting the castle, we realized we felt like we were living in a part of the castle ourselves. Truly amazing. There were 4 of us as there was room for many more. Ample space for all. The owner, Gilles, is a fine host and interesting man. I enjoyed our pleasant and useful interactions and felt very welcome in his home.

We’ve spent time in the Loire but this was our first time in Saumur. It is very worthwhile and well situated for exploring to the East and the West of Saumur. Saumur has a fabulous farmers market as well as a market hall in addition to the usual boulangerie, boucherie and cave à vins. The Carrefour City can fill-in in a pinch but does not compare with the other shopping options. There is much to like here and what an interesting and fun place to stay to enjoy the Loire.

Week in Saumur

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the duplex for 8 days in November 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation. We were two couples so we had lots of space to spread out and have our own space. The furniture is amazing some of it 400 years old. Gilles the owner was very easy to work with and very attentive. I would absolutely recommend this beautiful duplex for 8 to 10 people. There were lots of bathrooms and toilets and the views of the Chateau and Loire River are spectacular. Gilles thank you for your hospitality during our stay.
