CONCOURSON-SUR-LAYON, La Vallée des Vignes

Loire

Selected as this is a delightful little site situated just outside the village of Concourson-sur-Layon amidst the vineyards and sunflowers. It is an English owned site spaciously laid out in an open field and has a quiet peaceful atmosphere. You can expect a warm welcome from the charming proprietors who also run the attractive little bar/restaurant in the evening. Inevitably the majority of visitors are British, so it is not recommended for those looking for a typically French ambiance.
