Rosemary Kneipp and Jean Michel Avril are delighted to welcome you to their holiday rental studio. Rosemary is Australian and has been living the French dream since 1975 and Jean Michel was born and raised in the Loire Valley in an old windmill on top of  a hill near Saumur.

Our favourite pastimes are cycling, mushroom picking, walking, wine tasting, gardening and travelling.

Rosemary blogs in English on, sharing her experience of French life and extensive travelling throughout Europe and publishes a photo of the Loire Valley every day with a short text in French and English on
