La Maison Joulin

Ecolodge and Bed & Breakfast

Since buying our ancient farm in February 98, we have paid attention to restore it using the natural materials our predecessors would have used at the time of building, such as terracotta, slate, Loire sand, douglas pine, chestnut for the parquet and whitewash for the walls.We have also incorporated new natural materials such as hemp and cotton for the insulation and we have used non-toxic paint for the decoration. We believe that the environment in which we live is as important as what we eat for our health and happiness.

Our house

We offer you a warm welcome in our typical seventeenth century farmhouse, which we have restored with our own hands using traditional materials. We are in the LOIRE VALLEY of WESTERN FRANCE, in the heart of HISTORIC ANJOU. Our farmhouse is a haven of quiet just 10 minutes from SAUMUR, within easy reach of the many CHATEAUX OF THE LOIRE VALLEY, and the vineyards of renowned LOIRE WINES, such as SAUMUR CHAMPIGNY. We offer you not only comfortable accommodation but an ORGANIC breakfast as well !
