La Clos de la Roche is located on the outskirts of the quiet village of St Georges du Bois, 30 minutes from Saumur and 20 minutes from Angers. The cottage was built around 1750 and extended in 1850; the original beams are still visible as are the roof trusses on the upper floor. There is a large bread oven on the ground floor.
Previous owners have left their mark on the house - Jean Martineau, who lived here in 1846 and made wooden clogs (sabots) carved the date, his name and occupation (sabotier) on the wall upstairs. The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and offers wonderful views over farmland, peace and tranquillity.
La Clos de la Roche is a gîte classified by the Ministry for Tourism as a Meublé Tourisme with three stars.
