La Maison d’Amis is situated in the historic, medieval village of Le Puy Notre Dame. This is a charming village set in a conservation area in the beautiful countryside of the Regional Loire-Anjou-Touraine Natural Park which is great for visiting the many local vineyards, walking and cycling. Le Puy Notre Dame is designated a “Village de Charme” and a “Petite Cité de Caractère” and is dominated by a massive collegiate church which dates back to the 12th century. The village bakery, where you can buy your fresh breakfast croissants, baguettes and other patisserie, is only a minute's walk away. The village also has a restaurant and a bar as well as a grocery shop, pharmacy, hairdresser’s and a garage. A much larger selection of supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants is available only 10 minutes’ drive away in both nearby Doué la Fontaine and Montreuil Bellay.
