Space, fresh air, nature – Welcome to Loire Valley Llama Farm
Situated on 17 acres of natural meadows, woodlands, forest and beautiful gardens, the llama farm is nestled at the end of a quiet country lane that then opens into a stunning valley where the llamas roam freely. Indeed, the locals have aptly named it La Vallée des lamas – the Valley of the Llamas.
If you can drag yourself away from the animals and the pool, the location of our unique farm makes it ideal for exploring. There are many nearby market towns, quaint rural villages as well as a huge variety of leisure activities. What’s more, if that’s not enough to keep you occupied, the bustling cities of Le Mans and Tours are only a 35-minute drive away!
Delightful Quirky Accommodation
We offer a variety of comfortable but quirky accommodation, including our guests’ favourite, the Llama Lodge. A converted ancient wine press, the lodge sleeps up to 4 people, and is equipped with a kitchenette and private shower. It also has a small window at the back where you can secretly watch the llamas fooling around in their favourite play area.
Or perhaps you would prefer Glamping (luxury camping) in one of our thoughtfully positioned, spacious belle tents overlooking the llama meadows? Equipped with real beds (not camp beds) and Egyptian cotton bedding, solar lighting and private outdoor gas showers, our glamping tents comfortably sleep a family of 4 ~ in addition they still have room for a little one.
If you prefer stone walls to canvas, a stay in one of our beautiful Old Barn Rooms or the Stable Suite might be more to your taste. But whatever type of accommodation you choose, you will find everything here that you need for a fun and fascinating family holiday or a brief, but satisfying stop-over. Furthermore, there is the added luxury of being able to spend warm, relaxing evenings gazing up at a clear, star-studded sky. And not forgetting our lovely family of llamas, donkeys, goats, dogs, cats and chickens – they can’t wait to meet you!
A Warm Welcome
Sarah and Nigel delight in welcoming their guests to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of their incredible farm. Whilst the grown-ups 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.
Loire Valley Llama Farm is nestled in the Forêt de Bercé. Therefore, through our gates, you have immediate access to endless stunning forest paths, bridleways and off-road trails – ideal for walking, hiking and cycling. A 10-minute drive from the farm takes you to the town of Château du Loir, with its traditional cafés, supermarkets, shops, crêperie, pizzeria, various takeaways and tabac bars.
Something For Everyone
Stay and visit one of the many wonderful wine caves on the famous Loire Valley Wine route. On the other hand, why not hire a bike and experience the Vallee du Loir à Vélo? Then again, our neighbouring horse-riding centre organises treks through our local forest. Alternatively, you can spend the day mastering water sports at one of the local leisure lakes.
For a relaxing activity, absorb yourself in the historic Garden of France. Take a stroll around one of the region’s many châteaux, the closest, Château Le Lude, is only 20-minute drive away. Explore medieval Tours and the beautiful Place Plumereau. Pay a visit to one of the most famous racetracks in the world – Le circuit des 24 heures du Mans.
There are so many things for all the family to see and do here, you’ll soon be planning another visit. And we certainly look forward to welcoming you back to stay with us at Loire Valley Llama Farm.
