About Us, Sarah-Jane & Gérald

A visit in 2006 didn't see me return. Now, Mme Beaumont, wife to Gérald, a bilingual French wine professional and Mum to our two gorgeous children, Augustin (10yrs) and Constance (8yrs). Making our family '5' is Biscotte, our friendly rescue cat who you'll find sleeping amongst the flower beds.

We warmly welcome you to our family home where we hope you will enjoy the peace of our village setting, the regions rich history and attractions, local cuisine and diverse wines.

In July 2011, we opened our bar à vin/bistrot, Bistrot Les Tontons, in the heart of Saumur. Five wonderful years past before pastures new beckoned. Today Gérald is Directeur d’Exploitation for two wineries; Château de Beauregard in Le Puy Notre-Dame and Château des Noyers, close to Martigné-Briand.


Wine Tastings with Gérald

Discover the wines from the Loire Valley with Gérald during a fun and light-hearted wine tasting tutorial in our, once dwellings, troglodyte caves.

A weekly market, monthly brocante, activities, exhibitions and wine festivals held throughout the year. Saumur is also home to the Cadre Noir, the National Equestrian School of the elite French Cavalry whose remarkable horsemanship can be seen at shows between April & October.
