Stunning 16th century Sabbatical home away from home at the heart of lively city!

. Our home the "Logis de la Roche Corbin" is a 16th century "hotel Particulier" (noble mansion) that we lovingly restored over the course of 15 years. It is a haven of peace and beauty at the heart of our city ,Angers, in a charming medieval neighbourhood with restaurants, markets, schools, museums and many other amenities within very short walking distances. We have exceptional views over ancient gardens and the Logis is very quiet and thus perfect for rest and/or study! The Logis can host 6 people very comfortably ,one family, or two couples + children, and allows privacy for all. A green, flowery and fragrant patio provides an outside area to read or have a drink, weather permit.Angers is a young university city which offers an incredible variety of activities,intellectual, artistic, physical; The countryside is minutes away, by bike, theaters and concerts minutes away by foot. Our art house (400 coups cinema) was voted best cinema in France. buses, tram take you anywhere in a few minutes. but a great asset is to be able to relax,shop, take a walk in a peaceful village-like area and still be at the center of the city,with restaurants , café terraces, museums, city life.
Of course the surrounding areas offer lots of castles,picturesque hamlets to visit, wine and food to taste, rivers to explore, actually one sabbatical year isn't enough!We are a Franco-American couple,a real team; Michael is an artist (cinema and painting),and our home is one of his masterpieces!I, Pascale, am an"active" recently retired English teacher, busy with several interests, helping Michael with his film adventures (since 2004!).Our two children are now 25 (Céleste, actress/director) and 27 (Elliot, architect),and have left the nest they cherish.. so we thought we might take off, too..
We are quite used to meet and introduce visitors to interesting friends from the local University or the city and it is a pleasure for us. We created the first guest room B&B in Angers 8 years ago and we really enjoy it.. so do our guests, as their reviews say.We have also had weekly rentals particularly in the summer, and everybody has loved their stay here.We enjoy making people happy and feel comfortable.
Michael also have his beautiful and vast painting studio ,looking over two other gardens, just across the street, with private parking and a lovely flower/organic vegetable garden, that could also be part of long term arrangement.
We are open to short term rentals but we are really looking for a long term rental starting next May 2016.
We also have the possibility of arranging both a stay at the Logis and combine this with a stay at our wonderful Paris flat now listed as Sabbatical number 97180 .
Of course we are ready for a detailed correspondence with our future renter and to deepen the possibilities for the best arrangement for all.
Please contact us and let's make your sabbatical year a memorable and fantastic one: a dream come true.
"the purpose of any sabbatical is to press our boundaries, reconnect our inner narratives, and ask ourselves the dangerous questions — all the while adding quality to our lives as creatives"....

This house is spacious, bright, clean with a wonderful kitchen if you like to cook. Its location is within walking distance to almost everything in Angers, including trams which go all over the city. Walking distance to the TGV trains makes it easy to travel anywhere in France. Michael and Pascale were great to work with. They provided help with almost everything we needed. They are exceptional hosts. It is such an easy place to live if you want a superb French experience. Excellent Donna Giordano 11/9/2018 8:30:00 AM
We had a wonderful two weeks in this fine apartment. It is bright, clean and well located. Close to several intersecting metro lines and a short 5 minute walk to the Luxembourg Gardens. We used the apartment as a convenient base for activities on both the Left and Right Banks as well as Rolland Garros. Michael and Pascale were great to work with. They provided extra photos of apartment, were able to work with our arrival and departure schedule and went out of their way to orient us to the flat and the nearby area. We would certainly hope to return for the excellent accommodations, pleasant and easy to work with owners and convenient access to central Paris.

The Logis de la Roche Corbin truly is a work of art. The photos just don't do it justice! It's a large home that easily accommodates our family of four, plus our guests. The home has been beautifully restored with up to date bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen. It is well stocked with dishes, linens, books, movies...you won't want for anything. Michael and Pascale are absolutely wonderful! From the beginning they have been most helpful and generous. They have gone above and beyond our expectations. We have felt very welcome and at home here. We are loving the city of Angers. The city offers a wide variety of activities...bike trails, outdoor concerts, movie theaters, cultural exhibits, history, shopping and restaurants. Angers is also ideally located for traveling. Paris is easily reached by train. Nantes airport is less than one hour away. We've also made several short road trips to the Normandy and Brittany regions. We couldn't be happier with our choice in Angers and the Logis de la Roche Corbin! It will be hard for us to leave when our time here comes to an end. I highly recommend the experience of living here. Excellent SHEILA 9/18/2017 10:53:00 AM
We stayed at this beautiful Paris apartment for two weeks. The apartment is elegant and very much "classic Parisian." The location is superb—right next to several major transit stops, making it easy to get around and within ten minutes walking to Luxembourg Gardens. We were able to walk to many of the sites we visited. The apartment's grand French-door windows open onto a quiet street with very low traffic. The master bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen open onto an interior court which is quiet. The apartment is beautifully decorated. The flat has everything you could need for cooking and comfort (not to mention the most divine stove-top espresso maker I have ever used....and I have used a lot!). The master bedroom has a supremely comfortable bed, black-out drapes and a window facing the interior court. At night it was pitch black and silent. We slept very well. Michael and Pascale were warm, kind and generous. We feel lucky to have been welcomed into their home. Excellent Tom Fisher 12/1/2016 10:30:00 AM
What a gem of a place!!! We have been living at the Logis de la Roche Corbin for almost 3 months now (of the 10 months we'll be here) and we love it here. Angers is a pretty city, less than an hour from the Nantes-Atlantique International airport. This house is perfectly located for everything... universities, schools, markets, bakery, banks, cafés, shops, transit etc. Getting around is so easy by foot. It is a city steeped in history with so much to do with many cultural and arts events. It is a cyclist's, runner's, walker, and rower's dream location being just minutes from the river and Lac Meine, and all of its trails. The house is spacious, bright and comfortable with all the modern amenities. Elegantly renovated to high standards, while maintaining many of its original features.... from hundreds of years ago when it was a nobleman's home. The lovely little courtyard is perfect for outdoor meals and coffee in the morning. Having the private parking option in a gated courtyard is great. Michael and Pascale are lovely people and helped us a great deal in acting as liaisons to get our children registered in well reputed local schools, as well as with other matters. They have always been responsive to our questions. We would highly recommend this listing. Excellent Maple 11/7/2016 12:27:00 PM
