Welcome to

Domaine de Presle Saumur, The Originals Relais

Meat Jean and enjoy his charming 3-star hotel in Distre

A charming hotel with personality. A tranquil and verdant setting. A delicious restaurant. Welcome to Dominique and Jean Wavrant's hotel.

"To discover a place imbued with tranquillity and refinement. To succumb to its charm. And to spark the desire to come back." 

The Domaine de Presle Saumur, The Originals Relais opened its doors in June 2018. The culmination of a personal project for Dominique and Jean who dreamt of setting out on a new professional adventure together. The old mill and hunting lodge belonging to Maréchal Maillé-Brézé (Cardinal de Richelieu's brother-in-law), which had already been converted into a hotel-restaurant just outside of Distré, was for sale. A 4 hectare park, old buildings with lots of character and great potential... "We didn't hesitate!" Compliance with standards, renovation of the 21 rooms and restaurant, decoration, clean-up of the park: in the span of 3 months, the 3 star is transformed. The charm and tranquillity are enchanting. The new chef Christophe's inventive and refined cuisine awakens the taste buds. The warm and friendly welcome by Dominique, Jean and their team adds the final touch. More than a stopover in the vicinity of Saumur, the Domaine de Presle Saumur, The Originals Relais is worth the detour.

DINING

Domaine de Presle Saumur, The Originals Relais

The breakfast room will welcome you in an authentic setting. The varied and copious buffet serves sweet and savoury flavours including many fresh and local products. For lunch and dinner, the hotel's restaurant invites you to take a seat on its terrace or in its elegant and renovated dinning-room with exposed stones and beams, or yet again in its amazing bar whose design resembles a barrel. A traditional, semi-gastronomic cuisine. Taste and flavours. And taste buds asking for more.

LE MOULIN DES SAVEURS

Having been trained by the great names of French gastronomy, the chef Christophe Clessienne serves a refined and inventive menu. His dishes are as beautiful as they are tasty. The products are fresh and high-quality. The flavours and preparation techniques are mastered. A seasonal and flavourful cuisine. Everyone agrees, "Le Moulin des Saveurs, it's definitely not hot air". 

EXPERIENCES

Domaine de Presle Saumur, The Originals Relais

A country stopover in an old hunting lodge: let yourself be charmed by the Domaine de Presle Saumur, The Originals Relais during your travels along the roads of Maine-et-Loire.

SWIMMING-POOL AND PARK

Enjoy the hotel's small, heated outdoor swimming-pool for a relaxing moment. If you long for a bucolic break, the nearly 4 hectare park is all yours. Quiet strolls or a short run around the 2 ponds, you choose.

SAUMUR

The "Pearl from Anjou". This historical gem is not only made of stones, but of an entire enchanted universe. What student has not come across one of the colourful illuminations of the "Très Riches Heures" manuscript, a masterpiece of Gothic art? Saumur, it's also the land of horses and of the famous Cadre Noir riders dressed in their black and gold uniforms. Its city is also worth the detour for its elegant castle and the richness of its old town.

THINGS TO SEE NEARBY

The Fontevraud abbey in the dying light. All of the troglodytic vestiges carved into the rock that have shaped the landscape and led to the region's key economic centres (wine, mushroom growing) along with a particular way of living and habitat: the Rochemenier village, the Sablière's troglodytes, the Forge's troglodytic dwellings, the city of Doué-la-Fontaine,etc. The Loire castles. And further, Angers, the Puy du Fou, the Futuroscope, etc.

What our customers say

"Beautiful and comfortable"

Your hotel and the grounds are beautiful, and we wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy them more. We also found the beds extremely comfortable! The only thing we would have felt lacking for a longer stay was a stand-up shower, but for one night it was no problem.
