Located along the left bank of the Loire River, in the heart of one of France’s most celebrated wine regions, lies the historical town of Saumur. Here you will find the perfect location for your intimate and romantic wedding at The White House. This rustic but elegant 19th century restored farmhouse inspired Manor offers everything and anything you would need on your special day, whether it be inside amongst candlelight and original exposed stonework or outside beside the fragrant flower garden and fountains.

Inside the manor, called the White House for it’s white washed stone exterior and crisp white interiors, is a level of comfort and coziness that you will have a hard time leaving. The ground floor offers a professional quality kitchen with any appliance you could ever dream of and a deep double porcelain sink, surrounded by many dining options for you to enjoy a chef prepared meal. Off of the kitchen lies a powder room and the library, where you could bury yourself in a Victor Hugo novel by the fireplace.

As you glide from the ground floor to the second on the sweeping spiral staircase, you come to the Grand Salon with it’s focus on the 1900 Erard Baby Grand Piano, flanked by two sundrenched sitting areas with plush white couches and separate fireplaces. Directly connected to the salon is a Master bedroom with a king sized bed and a Master bath where you could take a long soak in the deep clawfoot tub by the fireplace. The Master bedroom also has large walk in closets and a flat screen TV.

The third floor, consisting of a left and right wing, houses 3 additional bedrooms. The right wing is completely devoted to an additional Master suite, perfect for families, with it’s queen bed, crib, seating area, flat screen TV and it’s private bathroom. In the left wing there are two additional guest bedrooms, both with king beds. One has a wardrobe with a desk, printer, fax and cable hookups, the other with an attached gym and bathroom.

Surrounding the manor is a perfectly sized garden with white flowers, an herb and vegetable garden, and a heated infinity pool with many lounge chairs. Open up the large French doors that lead into the kitchen for open air dining, or enjoy the two bistro tables on the patio with seating for 12. On the opposite end of the garden is the private guesthouse, which can sleep 3 with it’s queen bed and daybed. Throughout the entire manor there are 13 ceiling fans along with air conditioning in the bedrooms. The manor is also kept safe with an alarm system, gated entrance and a safe.

Just steps from the center of town, you will have an abundance of cultural, historical and entertainment options like going for a visit to the famous 13th century Chateau de Saumur where you can view a panorama of the town of Saumur and the river Loire. You and your quests can sample Loire Valley wines at one of the many vineyards and wine cellars surround Saumur and along the banks of the river. When you are ready to cool off, take a dip in your private infinity pool or take a boat tour down the river. Or slow down a little and do as the French do: just sit at a sidewalk café sipping a café Americano. No matter where you turn in this quaint town, you will find yourself fully immersed in romantic French culture and discover it to be the picture perfect setting for your special day.
