16 rue de la Maison Joulin, Chênehutte (Saumur), 49350

We offer you a warm welcome in our typical seventeenth century farmhouse, which we have restored with our own hands using traditional materials. We are in the LOIRE VALLEY of WESTERN FRANCE, in the heart of HISTORIC ANJOU. Our farmhouse is a haven of quiet just 10 minutes from SAUMUR, within easy reach of the many CHATEAUX OF THE LOIRE VALLEY, and the vineyards of renowned LOIRE WINES, such as SAUMUR CHAMPIGNY. We offer you not only comfortable accommodation but an ORGANIC breakfast as well !
UNUSUAL ACCOMMODATION GUEST HOUSE IN A SERENGETI AFRICAN TENT
You have dreamt of …

Description of Ecolodge la Maison Joulin Bed & Breakfast:

Since buying our ancient farm in February 98, we have been concerned to restore it using the natural materials our predecessors would have used at the time of building, such as terracotta, slate, Loire sand, douglas pine, chestnut for the parquet and whitewash for the walls.We have also incorporated new natural materials such as hemp and cotton for the insulation and we have used non-toxic paint for the decoration. We believe that the environment in which we live is as important as what we eat for our health and happiness.

Description of Ecolodge la Maison Joulin Gite :

You have dreamt of …
somewhere to put down your bags,
or sit,
or rest in the heart of nature somewhere else under an african tent with 4 stars full comfort.
We created this place for you keeping true to our own values : authenticity, simplicity and environment respect .
So the tent has a large balcony opening onto nature, with a sitting room area, a large bedroom for 2 people, a bathroom including a shower, sink,ecological toilets (it’s a toilet without any water nor any smell). The hot water is produced from a solar water-heater and the 12 volts lighting is photo-voltaique. The tent will be insulated with sheep wool felt. There are also heating facilities on cool nights.
We provide ecological soaps and shampoos, so as not to perturb the natural balance of the waste water filtering, which is done with plants (herbal purification).
Opening date from 30 april to 30 september.

week end prolongé de 4 jours
Review by: Edgard Gnanou, Mai 16 2010 7:47PM
C'est une chambre d'hôtes pas comme les autres, à moins d'un quart d'heure à pied des bords de Loire. Les chambres sont belles et sans ostentation. Les photos du sites sont fidèles à ce que l'on trouve sur place. Christian, Christine et leurs enfants qui nous accueillent sont chaleureux, souriants et aux petits soins avec leurs hôtes. Ils sont d'une grande gentillesse et savent guider les hôtes dans leur pays avec des très bons conseils. Le week-end gastronomique et oeunologique est une véritable réussite pour ceux qui aiment les repas sains et très bons avec des vins délicieux.
Le sommeil est réparateur à la Maison Joulin. La maison est bien à l'écart, entourée d'un très grand jardin, le calme est garanti. Le petit déjeuner est délicieux grâce à des confitures et des pains qui sortent de l'ordinaire. Quand le soleil est au rendez vous, sur la terrasse, on voudrait que le petit'dej dure toute la journée !
Le soir, Christian et Christine reçoivent leurs hôtes. Christian est un vrai Chef dont les mets sont préparés avec simplicité et délicatesse faisant du dîner un vraiment moment de dégustation...avec la découverte de vins dont il sait vous raconter l'histoire.
Nous reviendrons c'est presque sûr ! c'était TROP TROP bien !
