Welcome to Le Chardon
A perfect French Gite in the heart of the Loire
If it’s accommodation in the Loire Valley that you are looking for then we would like to welcome you to Le Chardon where we provide a relaxing and homely location / environment in which to spend your well earned break whilst sitting in your private, sunny walled garden planning how active, or not, you wish to be during your stay in this beautiful area of France.
Le Chardon nestles next to an 11th. Century church in the village of Antoigné where the tranquil and relaxed French way of life continues amidst seemingly endless fields of sunflowers, melons, wheat and, of course, vines.
A mere 5 minute pleasant drive away is the 15th. Century walled town of Montreuil Bellay and its fairy tale chateau, which towers over the banks of the river Thouet. Here also are restaurants, bars, shops, banks, ‘boulangeries’ and ‘tabacs/presse’.
A further 15 minute drive takes you to the famous equestrian town of Saumur and the mighty Loire river.
