Where we are

 
Parçay les Pins is a small village situated in a fruit growing area, set amidst picturesque countryside and pine forests. It is about 17 miles from the town of Saumur, 30 miles from Tours in the east and Angers in the west, all of which are sited on the river Loire.

The village is built of a local limestone called "Tuffeau" and is typically French in its appearance. Tuffeau is quarried locally, frequently from underneath the houses themselves providing excellent cellars or 'caves'.

Larger Caverns are now used for growing mushrooms or storing wine. The area where these caves are most noticeable is close to Bourgueil and Saumur where many have been converted into dwellings which are still occupied today.
