Welcome to L'Escale Chambres d'Hotes. We live in the small village of Vernoil-le-Fourrier, in the department of Maine et Loire. Vernoil is 17km north of Saumur. The house is 200 years old and full of character, with oak beams and tiled floors throughout. The private bed and breakfast suite consists of a double bedroom, a single bedroom, a shower room and a dining room.
Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the dining room, and there is a fridge for your use. In the double bedroom there is a TV with both French and English programmes, and there is a hairdryer available.
There is a single bed in the smaller bedroom, but it is possible to make up bunk beds if required.
Breakfast is served in the dining room or outside in our enclosed garden, and consists of fresh bread from the village bakery, pastries, muesli, cereals, fruit compot, yoghurts and homemade jams. The jams can be purchased from our selection if you want to take home a souvenir of your holiday.
We offer a four course evening meal, tailored to your dietary requirements, which includes a carafe of wine, and coffee afterwards.
L'Escale is on the corner of a square in the centre of the village, and there is plenty of free parking just outside.
If you are interested in visiting local wine producers, we have a local contact who runs wine tours. The tour will take in three or four vineyards and lasts approximately 3 to 4 hours. You will be collected from L'Escale and delivered home again - so no need to worry about the driving. We would recommend this visit as we have enjoyed it ourselves.
