About

. 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"....
