La Rousselière

La Possonnière, Maine-et-Loire
Bed & Breakfast

Never over-grand but stuffed with antiques and family portraits - take an aperitif with your charming hosts before a fine dinner


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


A hymn to peace, permanence and gentle living. The superb garden is Monsieur’s pride and joy; château-like reception rooms open one into another – glass doors to glass doors, billiards to dining to sitting – like an indoor arcade; family portraits follow you everywhere; Mass is still said once a year in the chapel. But it’s never over-grand. Bedrooms are highly individual with their antiques and hand-painted armoires (courtesy of an artistic sister), many bathrooms are new and Madame is the most delightful smiling hostess and a fine cook (veg, meat and eggs all home-grown). Your lovely hosts join you for an aperitif before dinner.

A lovely place and the de Berus are perfect hosts. Madame is a wonderful cook in the traditonal French style and the 30 euro dinner (including aperitif and good local wine) is a terrific bargain. We stayed just one night but wished we could have stayed longer.

Such charming and welcoming hosts, it was difficult to leave. We had enjoyable aperitifs on the veranda followed by an excellent home cooked dinner and a good nights sleep.

Bruce, London

Splendid, sophisticated surroundings complemented by a warm welcome from our charming hosts. Our most comfortable room looked out over beautiful gardens. The evening meal was preceded by a local aperitif with our host and hostess and served in their historic dining room hung with family portraits. A memorable stay!


We arrived after a 5 am start from UK and were delighted with the quiet ambience of La Rousseliere. Francois and Jacqueline were delightful and welcoming hosts. We walked along the River Loire and were loaned a map by Monsieur. Breakfasts and dinners (we stayed 3 nights) were superb. Homemade jams at breakfast and local recipes for dinner such as the Salmon in a green sauce. Exquisite - we shall return!


François is probably the most quietly charming Frenchman I have ever met. The welcome he and and Jacqueline gave us was wonderful. He gave us great advice on cycle routes, lent us a book and recommended some great vineyards where we could buy wine. The food was delicious. We stayed an extra day as we were enjoying it so much. Lovely peaceful swimming pool too.


Wecomed by M and Mme Berú, who were charming and enthusiatic. Lovely large room with "period" whatever that was decor. Excellent dinner, but a bit too much to eat. Jolly chat. Good nights sleep. Local knowledge high -eg walks by Loirs, islands to see, etc. Booked lunch for us next day at Le Favre d'Anne in Angers, which i could recommend to anyone and most highly. A pleasant and interesting visit


A warm welcome on a cold wet night got us off to a good start. We thoroughly enjoyed our three days here with such excellent, helpful hosts, who knew all the best things to see. It was a special treat to enjoy Jacqueline's excellent home cooking as a change from eating out. They were also very encouraging to us in our attempts to speak French!-
