La Petite Maison

The Loire Valley, France



A charming and simple river village cottage for two with a French bistro design feel to the interior. Perfect for romantic escapes. Owned by the lovely Sue and Micaela who also own and manage the nearby LA GRANDE MAISON guest house.

For every booking a €5 donation will be made to Stonewall.

The Location

The beautiful Loire river village of Treves stands proud on the banks of the Loire. The self catering cottage is just a short stroll to the river, a traditional restaurant and a tabac in Cunault.

A peaceful location from which to explore the Loire Valley around Saumur and Angers.

The nearest international airport is in Nantes but there is also a good train service to Saumur from Paris.

Sue and Micaela are also the owners of guest house – LA GRANDE MAISON. La Petite Maison is their option for those who prefer a self catering cottage.

There is not much that Sue and Micaela don’t know about wine. They created the original Loire Valley wine tour package back in 2004 and have been building on their knowledge and experience ever since.

Both originally from Brighton, Micaela’s background is in hotels and computer software and Sue worked in the wine business. They both fell in love with La Grande Maison in 2004 and La Petite Maison in 2006 and now enjoy sharing their passion for wine and the Loire Valley.

Review from Belinda and Sally from Australia: Spring 2013

Dear Micaela and Sue - Thank you so much for your little 'River Cottage'. We enjoyed our time here for some much needed R&R. We will definately be recommending this place to our friends and family. Best wishes for the season.

Review by Sophie Hartman: May 2011

One of those super places that actually lives up to, or even surpasses, its lovely website photos: stylish, comfortable, excellently well equipped and made even more pleasurable due to the friendliness and efficiency of Micaela and Sue.

They were endlessly helpful in my early querying stages and responded so helpfully to our desire to do the whole thing without car or plane. We took the train from St Pancras at 10.25 and were sipping beer outside a tabac by the Loire by 5.30pm. We used the resident 'vintage' bikes to get around and were supplied with the most sumptuous hamper of foodie delights to see us through our first evening and morning (bread, cheese, home grown salad, home laid eggs, plenty of excellent local wine, and much much more).
