Full description:

Situated at the side of a quiet lane between Baugé and Beaufort-en-Vallée, this very well presented country property has been restored and extended over the past 15 years to create a super 4-5 bedroom 'L' shaped house which works equally well as a large family home or as a smaller 2 bedroom home with a 2-3 bedroom gite, each of which has its own garden. There are lots of period features with beamed ceilings, a large stone fireplace and 2 wood burning stoves but there is also central heating (gas or electric) throughout, lots of insulation and most of the windows are double glazed. It is very rare to see an old home with such a good thermal efficiency rating.

The location of the house makes the gite an ideal place for tourist to stay whilst exploring all the treasures the Loire Valley has to offer. The guests can come home from a hard day's site seeing and sit in the garden in the shade of the pretty gazebo or go for a swim in the above ground pool. There are excellent bike rides and the old village railway line has just been converted into a dedicated cycle path which goes all the way to Baugé.

About Agence Vallée des Rois, Brissac Quincé

Your Life Style – Our Experience – Your Choice

Opening Hours: We plan our days to fit your timetable

Welcome to Agence Vallee des Rois, the Franco-British estate agency located in the heart of the UNESCO classified Loire Valley in Western France, a wonderful place to come and enjoy the more relaxed French way of life with something to appeal to everyone. It really is a perfect area in which to buy a first or a second home.

We are a French registered business that has been buying and selling properties for French and International clients since 1998 so you know you are dealing with a well established agency that is legal, regularly inspected and professionally run and, to reassure you further the team speaks fluent French and English.

We believe we are the perfect place for you to start your search for a home in France.

The agency offers a tailor-made service from the first time you contact us until completion of your property purchase. We want the process to be as stress free as possible and will help you open bank accounts, get mortgages, transfer the utilities and set up the telephone and internet.

We try to find something for everyone: whether it is a small town house with a courtyard garden in a sleepy market town, a gite complex, a farm with barns for storing vintage cars not far from Le Mans or an equestrian property close to the Ecole National d’Equitation and the world famous Cadre Noir de Saumur.

Please browse through our properties for sale on the website which we up-date on a regular basis. If you are unable to find the exact property you are seeking, complete the contact form and we will be happy to assist you further in your French property search.

We understand that moving to a foreign country is a big step to take. If you want to make sure that life in France is really for you before you buy a house, we can find you either a long term unfurnished rental property or put you in touch with a holiday cottage owner who is ready to let his gite during the off season.

We don’t want to waste your time. Tell us about the sort of life style you want in France and profit from our experience to help you find the perfect French home for you.

Whatever the economic climate, the Loire Valley remains a sought after area and a popular place to buy a property. Foreign home buyers are always surprised how much better value for money the houses are in comparison to their own countries and by how much further their money can go. With house prices starting from well under €100,000 and rising into the millions, property buyers can find anything from reasonably priced village homes in need of work, town houses, country properties with land, equestrian properties, B&B or gîte businesses, through to large chateaux.

Our property listings range from restoration projects through houses with land, traditional country homes (longères), cottages (fermettes), modern houses and restored chateaux meaning we have a wide choice of properties to suit all tastes and budgets. We have properties for sale to the north and south of the River Loire and cover much of Maine et Loire (Dept 49), Indre et Loire (Dept 37) and La Sarthe (Dept 72) but we are now actively expanding our property portfolio south of the River Loire and featuring more properties in the vineyards south of Angers, going even further south towards Thouars (Dept 79).

Enough about us, now to tell you a little more about our region, the climate is better than the UK with longer, hotter summers and milder winters and the region is known throughout France for its gentle climate - ‘la douceur angevine’ – and we believe that applies to the people too.

It is easy to relax outside a café in one of the town squares and watch the world go by, browse the stalls at the weekly market or do a little wine tasting at one of the local vineyards. For the more energetic, explore the countryside on the quiet roads and kilometres of dedicated cycle paths or go horse riding in the forests or on the banks of the Loire. Lovers of history aren’t forgotten either: find out more about the joint history of France and the UK with a visit to Fontevraud Abbey where Richard the Lion Heart is buried ………… and then there are charming towns like Saumur, watched over by its famous chateau, where you can visit the Tank Museum, go to the to the National Riding School and the famous dancing horses of the Cadre Noir, the gardens of Villandry – the list of things to do and places to visit goes on and on.

Transport links are good. Getting to and from the area is easy and there are plenty of autoroute connections (A11, A85) meaning it is simple to go to Paris or the sea for the day. The nearest ferry port (Caen Ouistreham) is only 2.5 hours drive away, there are regional airports at Tours, Nantes, Angers (Marcé) and Poitiers, TGV trains run from Saumur, Angers and Tours and there are connections to the Eurostar via Lille or Paris.
