Space, fresh air & nature! With a maximum of 20 guests on the farm book to reserve your holiday on the farm.
Loire Valley Llama Farm is situated in 17 acres of natural meadows, dense woodlands and beautiful gardens at the end of a quiet country lane, which then opens out into its own stunning valley. The locals have aptly named it ‘La Vallée des lamas’ – The Valley of the Llamas – and, if you can drag yourself away from the animals, the location of our unique farm makes it perfect for exploring the nearby towns and villages of La Chartre sur le Loir, Chateau du Loir, and the cities of Le Mans and Tours.
We offer a variety of comfortable but ‘quirky’ accommodation, including our guests’ favourite, the ‘Llama Lodge’. Converted from an ancient wine press it is equipped with its own kitchenette and private shower. Or would you prefer to glamp in one of our thoughtfully positioned, luxury belle tents overlooking the llamas’ meadows? Equipped with proper beds, Egyptian cotton bedding and solar power. Maybe you would choose to stay in one of the two comfortable rooms in the beautiful old barn. Whatever type of accommodation you choose, you will find everything you need here, plus the extra luxury of being able to spend warm, relaxing evenings gazing at a clear, star-studded sky.
Sarah & Nigel delight in welcoming their guests to enjoy the nature and peace of their tranquil farm. Whilst the adults are chilling out in the pool, or listening to the chatter of llamas, the children can earn their ‘Llama Farmer Diploma’, learning basic animal husbandry and helping with the animals at feeding time.
Because Loire Valley Llama Farm is nestled in the Forêt de Bercé, through our gates you have immediate access to miles of stunning forest walks, bridleways and off-road trails. A 10-minute drive from the farm takes you into the town of Château du Loir, where you will find traditional cafés, supermarkets, shops, crêperie, pizzeria, various takeaways and tabac bars. Why not include a visit to one of the many wine caves on the famous Loire Valley Wine route? Or hire a bike and experience the Vallee du Loir à Velo ? A neighbouring horse riding centre organises treks through our local forest. Spend the day mastering water sports at one of the nearby leisure lakes or absorb yourself in the historic ‘Garden of France’ and visit one of the many Château, the closest of which is Château Le Lude, only 20 minutes away. Explore medieval Tours and the beautiful ‘Place Plumereau’ or visit the one of the most famous racetracks in the world, ‘Le circuit des 24 heures du Mans’.
There are so many things for the whole family to see and do here that you will soon be planning your next visit.
