In the spring and summer, the pond is a central feature with its waterlilies, flowers, fish and frogs.

Whilst you are visiting the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site, why not take a pause and stop over at La Samsonelle gite in Fontevraud L’Abbaye, a stunning village ideally located for touring the Loire valley region, only 15 minutes from Saumur. You will discover a place where the words gentle life and charm are given their full meaning and where its inhabitants are happy to share with you the French country life with the gentle flow of the Loire river, beautiful landscapes and still active troglodytic villages.

The Saumur tourist office is always up-todate with up and coming events and Saumur-Kiosque also carries local news and events but I also list events on our gite website. The calendar of events for cultural events in the Maine & Loire may be found here. The town-hall of Fontevraud has much useful information about the village. Cultural events are held throughout the year at the Abbey in Fontevraud. Many horse-riding events also take place in the region during the year.
