La Croix d’Étain

Grez Neuville, Maine-et-Loire
Bed & Breakfast

Magnificent lacy bedrooms in a yacht-side setting and delightful Madame to look after you: genuine, old-style B&B 20-minutes from Angers


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Frisky red squirrels decorate the stone balustrade, the wisteria is a glory in spring, and the wide swooshing river cascades over the weir. It feels like deep country yet this handsome manor has urban elegance in its very stones. Panelling, mouldings, subtly muted floor tiles bring grace; traditional French florals add softness. It looks fairly formal but sprightly Madame loves having guests and pampers them, in their own quarters, with luxury. Expect plush, lacy, flowery, carpeted bedrooms, three with river views, all with sunny bathrooms. The yacht-side setting is stunning – it could be the Riviera.

We stayed here for one night on our homeward journey to Cherbourg following a two week trip to various areas in France. Madame is a delightful lady and couldn't do enough to please. She informed us prior to arrival that on Mondays most restaurants were closed and she would prepare us a dinner. She did not disappoint and we even had raspberries freshly picked from her garden for dessert. The breakfast was also very good with home made jams. Lovely peaceful location. Would not hesitate to recommend.
