About The Area

Parçay-les-Pins is a small friendly Village with a beautiful church, family run general store and boulangerie. There is also a cafe bar beside which is the museum, dedicated to the work of the famous sculptor, Jules Desbois.

Sitting amongst fields on the edge of a beautiful ancient forest, the cottage offers an ideal base for those wishing to completely relax, surrounded by the peace and quiet of this beautiful part of France.

While there are lovely walks through the forest for many miles, the national and regional cycle route runs alongside, meaning you can explore beautiful countryside in a variety of ways.

Nearby is the lovely Lac de Rille, with its tranquil atmosphere, historic steam train, fishing and wildlife reserve (including observation posts for the wide variety of birds), and within 12km is the nearby wine region of Bourgueil, which can be reached either by car or on bike, taking in the breathtaking scenery as you go.

As well as the nearby attractions, we are within 30 minutes of the Loire, providing the opportunity to explore the famous chateaux and towns. You will never grow tired of enjoying the splendour and history of these castles, as well as the variety offered by their gardens.

The larger towns of Angers and Tours are within an hour, offering a large choice of shops and restaurants and markets, as well as their own interesting history.

How to get there

Once you reach the village of Parcay Les Pins, continue along the road to Gizeax for about 2km, then you will see on the right a large house with a row of fir trees. Just past this is a left turning along a lane called Rue de Vaslin – follow this lane all the way for about half a km, and La Petite Maison de Sue is the first house on the right, with the green post boxes outside.
