Special Features:

     Villa Belle Couronne

Constructed in 1900, this beautiful and inviting bed and breakfast is an example of the Belle Époque era and its classic architecture.  Its name appropriately translates into 'beautiful crown'.  This delightful building has been completely and sympathetically renovated to take guests back in time while providing the best in 21st century comfort and conveniences.  Situated only steps from the Loire River, you couldn't ask for a better location for your holiday.

The new owners have many years of experience hosting guests, as they have owned two château bed and breakfast properties in the Loire before falling in love with Villa Belle Couronne.  They know the region very well, and can be quite helpful to guests with day trips to visit the remarkable and historic sights of the Loire Valley. 
Villa Belle Couronne offers two elegant. south-facing bedrooms with modern en suite bathrooms complete with tubs, walk-in showers, WC, double basins, towel warmers, plush bathrobes and hair dryers.  The bedrooms are spacious and filled with sunlight.  Each has a comfortable sitting area and panoramic views of the river, the villages and vineyards on the opposite shore.

Take breakfast each morning on the terrace or in the salon.  Wander the property to see the little romantic corners of the gardens and the fine, century-old trees.  A refreshing enclosed swimming pool is there for your enjoyment, and although the Villa is in the village, it is a very special private and tranquil retreat.

Villa Belle Couronne is only twenty kilometers from the remarkable city of Nantes with its historic heritage and welcoming nature situated at the mouth of the River Loire.  It is here you will find the Château des Ducs de Bretagne ~ once the seat of the Dukes of Brittany ~ and now a fine museum.  The great Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paul of Nantes, whose construction began in 1434 and continued for over 400 years, is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with Renaissance tombs.  The soaring, luminous interior is breathtaking. 

From Angers to Nantes, visitors can enjoy the many wine domaines of the region including a very special one in the village of Le Cellier where Villa Belle Couronne is located.  Take leisurely strolls along the banks of the Loire to discover villages, the river and its islands.  Or venture out on bicycles on the EuroVélo 6 stage of a bicycle path that begins in St Nazaire and goes through France and beyond.  There are several fine restaurants along the banks of the river offering local products and fresh fish, but you can also enjoy dinner at Villa Belle Couronne on Sunday and Wednesday evenings with prior reservation.

Villa Belle Couronne and its spectacular location on the River Loire will long remain a very happy and unparalleled memory of your time in France.
