'La Joie du Muguet' – more commonly referred to as 'Le Muguet' – is a comfortable, country cottage standing in its own, private garden amidst farmland. The cottage has its entrance off a quiet farm road which provides access for four properties – Le Muguet (Lily of the Valley), Le Verger (The Orchard), La Vieille Vigne (The Old Vine) and Le Petit Verger (The Little Orchard), all set well apart. Seasonal farm vehicles also use this little roadway.
The property was originally a market farm growing fruit and flowers, specialising in Lilies of the Valley (Le Muguet) – a traditional crop in this part of the Loire Valley where bunches of Lilies of the Valley are still given on May Day to bring good luck and joy (La Joie). As they give you a bunch of Lily of the Valley on May Day, French people wish you 'La Joie du Muguet'. In the garden today, depending on the time of year, you will find Lilies of the Valley and other flowers, pears, apples, plums, peaches and walnuts and visitors are encouraged to help themselves.
Families or couples can choose their own style of holiday at Le Muguet – relax in privacy sitting on the terraces or in the shade of fruit trees, enjoy the private pool with its shallow end that's perfect for children, or enjoy all sorts of activities: table tennis, fishing, golf, riding, sailing, walking, shopping at local markets, zoos, activity centres, museums .... and visits to the renowned châteaux and vineyards – or enjoy a bit of both.
The present proprietors also live in Auverse and have owned this property for more than 15 years during which time it has been thoroughly 'road-tested' by our visitors.
