Le Manoir de la Baldette
A little history of our house ...
Built a few kilometers from Saumur, this timeless mansion is the former residence of the prior of Saint-Eusebe. Heritage lovers and history buffs, we have restored it with craftsmen with traditional know-how.
Built from the 14th century, this harmonious ensemble is made of typical tufa stone from the Loire Valley. Five comfortable rooms await you with each its identity and its special atmosphere.
... and his name
Descendant of the Plantagenets and Aliénor d'Aquitaine who rests at the nearby Abbey of Fontevraud, passionate about this Loire Valley shaped by her ancestors Counts of Anjou and Kings of France, Marie-Noëlle Grippari also wanted to pay homage to his paternal grandfather, Ubaldo, who arrived very young from his native Istria (today croatian).
This prior house, which had never received a name, thus became the Manoir de la Baldette, that of Baldo's granddaughter, una baldetta.
Sweetness and relaxation in the garden
After a day exploring the Loire and the riches of Anjou, rest in the calm of our garden and its small waterfall, watch fly dragonflies above the basins, stroll through the park to see the whole village of Gennes at your feet, and enjoy at breakfast the fruits of our orchard.
