Covering 75m² (over 800 Square Feet), your apartment has been entirely renovated in 2012, keeping in mind the style of the time while offering comfortable modern facilities.

Thanks to its oak floors, the molded ceilings over 3 meters high, the wall trimming but also the carefully chosen and harmoniously arranged furniture this vacation rental is taking you back into the 19th century French bourgeois lifestyle.

The entrance door opens on to the main room harmoniously divided between the family room and the dining area. On each side are the two bedrooms suites allowing Les Carmes to be used by either a family or two couples with complete privacy thanks to the two fully equipped suites. Each one has its own bathroom, toilet and large closets. The family room and the fully equipped kitchen becoming social areas where you'll probably enjoy a glass of "Noble Joue", one of the local wines.

But let's not forget Baby! At Les Carmes Baby is a special Guest with his own bed and its good mattress for his comfort, special anti allergy linens for his safety and even a BabyCook and a recipes book for his pleasure!

Thru the four large French doors the square lays its history

At times, a convent, then a fish market, the square is now a quiet place where people of all ages meet during the day enjoying the shade under the trees and the benches. To the right is the mansion of the "Compagnon du devoir" school, the highest craftsmen institution in France while on the opposite side of the square, towards the nearby Loire river, you'll catch a glimpse of a splendid medieval house in between the tree leaves.

Let's take a walk: Over the square to the North you'll be on the Loire river banks. Starting point of several bike rides from the Loire à vélo network of secured trails (over 800 km of them!) but also during summer the very happening place of the "Guinguette". The french version of beer garden mixed with social dance and people watching. Kids haven't been forgotten either with a dedicated playground.

Back to the square but strolling to the south, you'll be in a couple of steps on the "Plummereau" square a very lively one surrounded by medieval houses.
