Situated in a quiet neighbourhood, our house is an old Angevin house of 150 m² built in the late 19 century. The house is being renovated, the original section of the house is built of slate and tuffeau, and the newer part was added 50 years ago.
On the ground floor, there is a lounge-dining room, a small kitchen, a bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom, an office, a veranda and a garage.
On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, including two bedrooms for children with a single bed in each, a bedroom with a double bed, and a small bathroom. The old part of the house backs onto a 400 m² garden and gives a feeling of "countryside in the city" which is extremely pleasant.
We have lived in this house for 9 years and have already made many alterations. The non-renovated rooms are functional, despite their faded deco. We will update soon the pictures, because others rooms have been renovated.

The house is located in Angers, in the district of the Madeleine, 5 minutes walk from the shops, and 10 minutes from the historical centre by bus, bicycle or car. Angers is a beautiful city in the west of France, with pedestrian streets, an important historical heritage and a dense cultural activity : the castle (with the tapestry of the Apocalypse), the old historical centre
with its half-timbered houses, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Contemporary tapestry, parks, theatres, cinemas, swimming pool... The river Maine flows through Angers which itself flows into the river Loire a little further downstream. Whether you follow the river to the west (towards Nantes), or to the east (towards Saumur) and you can enjoy many pleasant walks in the countryside. The Atlantic Ocean is at 1h30 away by car, either in Loire Atlantic or in Vendee. Castles, rivers, forests and traditional villages are numerous in the region. In summer, there are many festivals and vide-greniers. Trains to Paris are frequent (approx. every 1h30).

We used to live in Paris but decided to change for province to find a bit of peace. Arriving in Angers, we created our own professional theater company (plays for everyone and plays for children). We're a four members family : Sylvain is 43, Katina 44, Juliette 14. and Benjamin 12. Our kids are very respectful and well behaved. We have a lovely cat, that you will have to feed.
