'La Joie du Muguet' – more commonly referred to as 'Le Muguet' – is a comfortable, country cottage standing in its own, private garden amidst farmland. The cottage has its entrance off a quiet farm road which provides access for four properties Le Muguet, Le Verger (The Orchard), La Vieille Vigne and Le Petit Verger (The Little Orchard), all set well apart and for seasonal farm vehicles.

The property was originally a market farm growing fruit and flowers, specialising in Lilies of the Valley (Le Muguet) a traditional crop in this part of the Loire Valley where bunches of Lilies of the Valley are still given on May Day to bring good luck. In the garden today, depending on the time of year, you will find Lilies of the Valley and other flowers, pears, apples, plums, peaches and walnuts and visitors are encouraged to help themselves. Also very free range hen's eggs are often available from Le Verger.

Families or couples can choose their own style of holiday at Le Muguet – relax in privacy sitting on the terraces or in the shade of fruit trees, enjoy the private pool with its shallow end that's perfect for children, or enjoy all sorts of activities: table tennis, fishing, golf, riding, sailing, walking, shopping at local markets, zoos, activity centres, museums .... and visits to the renowned châteaux and vineyards – or enjoy a bit of both.

The present proprietors also live in Auverse and have owned this property for more than 10 years during which time it has been thoroughly 'road-tested' by our visitors.

Beautiful, well equipped, stone country cottage with its own garden and private pool.
