About Us

Sarah-Jane & Gérald

Gérald and I welcome you to our French/Anglo family home, La Bellevue set in the village of Pouançay, between Saumur and Chinon surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields. A visit to the Val de Loire in 2006 didn't see me return. Now, Mme Beaumont, wife to Gérald and Mum to our two gorgeous children, Augustin (12 yrs) and Constance (10 yrs), who will introduce you to our friendly 3 French hens!


In July 2011, we opened our bar à vin/bistrot, Bistrot Les Tontons, in the heart of Saumur.  Five wonderful years past before pastures new beckoned.  Today Gérald is Directeur and Vigneron of two Loire Valley Châteaux; Château de Beauregard, Le Puy Notre-Dame (AOC Saumur) and Château des Noyers, Martigné-Briand (AOC Anjou) which have been recognised for their award winning wines.
