Focus on ... the owners of CARRE!
After having introduced the Chef JPK and our master-sommelier Claudie, I thought you were probably many and numerous not to know us! And for good reason ... we are the little hands of the shadow (LOL).
Happy London owners since 14 yearswe were not meant for the hotel business at all. A curriculum International Business School for Charlotte (EPSCI for connoisseurs) and Engineer for François (Arts & Crafts and University of Karlsruhe in Germany for other connoisseurs), our first paths have led us to HR and Professional Orientation for me and Automobile Production for François.
A great trip to Australia and New Zealand was enough to open a few chakras and made us want something else ... the Hospitality that François had been dreaming of since our meeting was right in the business world and here we are ... with luck to have fallen on this beautiful lady from London ... oldest hotel in Saumur still in operation. 10 years of hard work have allowed us to get an 3th star after "rebuilding" the hotel as we like to say: renovation of all rooms and water, electricity and gas networks of all the hotel. We went anyway with 13 sanitizers and 10 bathrooms cabins ... as on the boats but in the heart of the Pays de la Loire! 2 additional years of work allow us today to welcome you from the ground floor in the noble parts of the historic Hotel: its Winter Garden in Eiffel structure, a nice living room, a south facing terrace and a seminar room among others ... We launch in stride The CARRE of London : jars, tea time, brunch, massage room ... the ideas are not lacking. Only the Tea Time has been set aside (much to my chagrin) because it is too time consuming for the arrival times of hotel guests.
So we come to CARRE ... a beautiful meeting between Jean-Pierre Kausz who launches his jars after 10 years of reflection and the Chovets who are looking for a concept of restoration in the form of jars to open the Winter Garden at the saumurois every noon ... and the case is launched. We have just spent 2 beautiful years in you create more than 400 dishes coming out of the overflowing imagination of JPK and served with love and passion by Charlotte and the entire CARRE team. Continue to be numerous, we assure you fidelity, passion and greediness!
We can not conclude this presentation without presenting you our 3 goblins that brighten up our everyday life (the days of cloud or thunderstorm being too few to be relieved): Sybille 15 years, Margaux 12 years and Como 9 years ... the photo of our happiness speaks for itself and it seems that happy people make the tasted food even better!
The Carrousel of Saumuris an institution ... and yet it evolves!
Come many 19 & 20 July for its 170th edition ! Beyond the opening of the Defense Village of 10h to 19h where exhibition of old and modern tanks, animations, exhibitors, refreshments & fanfares available to you, it is now taking place. 2 distinct time on a day. In the morning, the Morning of the Black Frame (paid show at the National School of Riding) and the afternoon, the famous equestrian and military show of the Military Schools of Saumur : outdoor show, free (subject to availability), in the city center on the completed Place du Chardonnet.
The equestrian and military show: a unique moment!
In a spectacular evocation, everyone is swept into the whirlwind of recent history and discovers that, despite the incredible revolution of military means in the 1 century, the values of service and duty remain at the heart of a timeless commitment. From cavalry on horseback to contemporary armored vehicles, this show is an opportunity to discover 200 years of equestrian & military tradition within the city of Saumur and to evoke both recent and current commitments as well as the memory of heroic deeds. have marked the history of the cavalry. At the end of the great chronological fresco, dynamic presentations of historic armored vehicles from the Saumur Armor Museum's collection, the modern means of modern cavalry and the Army are also presented and put in context.
CarrouSSel or CarrouSel? You know my strong taste of rhetoric ... I can not help but this little aside ... It is common to hear or read "carrouSSel" rather than "carouSel" in the streets of Saumur ... So what is the good? It is indeed carrousel with only one S. Carrousel is a word of Italian origin which designates a game of horsemen. The Larousse dictionary gives the following definition: parade resumption where riders evolve according to agreed figures and most often in music. The same word also refers to a ring of circular wooden horses.
Too bad for the New London, but in this season of tourist season in the Saumur, I can not help but tell you about another event that we love. And for good reason, it causes cars! The Grand Prix Rétro Puy Notre-Dame. We roll mechanical 20 & 21 July next… More 160 pre-war vehicles are being demonstrated in the streets of the village : Bugatti, Fiat, Amilcar, Tricyclecars, sidecars and motorbikes ... the race rages and the engines roar, an appointment of enthusiasts not to be missed!
