Self-catering studio in the Loire Valley

COVID : your safety is our priority. We want you to have a relaxing and stress free holiday, so we take COVID cleaning and precautions very seriously. We have completed the AirBnB cleaning training and test and signed the commitment to clean according to their guidelines. We also follow the guidelines from the French ministry. (All guidelines available on request)

Rosemary Cottage is a stylish, self-catering studio converted from a loft at Bumblebee Manor in 2016. Your hosts Sue and Martin Alemann live at the Manor and have a passion for travel, fun experiences, anything that involves food or wine and meeting new people. Hosting visitors like you is the perfect match for those passions.

Rosemary Studio retains the original character with some original stonework, a solid wood floor and exposed beams in the double height ceiling. On the first floor on the side of Bumblebee Manor, it is accessed via an external staircase. A sunny balcony overlooks the heated swimming pool, delightful manor house garden and picturesque French countryside and is furnished with a table and chairs, perfect for the French way of life, with long lazy al fresco lunches and a glass or two of Loire valley wine.

Bumblebee Manor (Manoir Bourdon) is a historic manor house in the middle of a small French village south of Saumur nestled within the Loire Valley Natural Park. It is surrounded by vineyards, farms and fields that are filled with color during the summer. You enter the property through a gate, making the property safe and secure, and a haven from the bustle of other tourists and traffic.

Borrow one of our bikes and tootle along our country lanes to explore local villages. Experience the fabulous food at local cafes, bistros and restaurants, or shop at a local market and prepare a relaxed meal in your own kitchen to enjoy in your private outdoor space with a glass of renowned Loire Valley wine.

With five 2-person cottages, Bumblebee Manor is perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway or for groups of friends and family wanting a shared vacation. Groups of 6 or more are given access to the manor house terrace with its alfresco dining and lounge areas, the best of both worlds as each couple have their own self-catering space but the group has a place to gather for dining and socializing.
