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.

(All guidelines available on request)

Bumblebee Manor, a historic manor house in the middle of a small French village south of Saumur, is nestled within the Loire Valley Natural Park. Lavender cottage is annexed to the Manor house and has separate entrance gates, secluded private garden and parking. With its original stonework, solid wood floor and exposed beams in the double height ceiling, it is a treasured part of the manoir. Lavender is on the ground floor and all on one level. The double bedroom has an ensuite shower room with modern wc and basin, the queen bed can be separated into two singles. The attractive kitchen area is fully equipped with sink, oven, hob and fridge. The lounge/dining area is tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished. The private garden and large paved terrace is furnished with garden table and chairs, sun-loungers and parasol, perfect for the French way of life, of long lazy al fresco lunches and a glass or two of Loire valley wine. Guests have shared use of a heated swimming pool and the extensive manor house gardens and BBQ areas.

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.

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.

Bumblebee Manor is surrounded by vineyards, farms and fields that are filled with colour during the summer. You enter the walled property through a gate, making the property private, safe and secure, and a haven from the bustle of other tourists and traffic. With easy access to castles, markets, great restaurants and wineries, Bumblebee Manor is perfectly situated for a wonderful self-catering holiday in the Loire Valley, France. We look forward to hosting you and sharing "la belle vie francaise". To life!
