We stumbled upon this beauty of a holiday destination by chance and feel so lucky that we did. There were only the two of us but the property caters for at least another 2 adults and a baby/toddler. Extremely spacious and well equipped with the added bonus of seeing wild deer roaming in the extensive garden. Cannot fault anything about this cottage but do make sure that you get Pascal's WiFi password then be prepared to stand in the garden or on the decking for your reception! But who needs internet connections when the aim is to get away from it all. Lots of lovely minor French roads to get about as well as major highways to access the larger towns/cities like Nantes (Les Machines, Cathedral, Chateau and much more) and Angers (Chateau and old town buildings and much more). We found satnav a must for getting about but this was our first driving visit to France so others may be more able. Too many places to mention including the above but the slightly larger towns are all well equipped with supermarkets and fuel stations as well as churches, chateaux by the bucket load and a slower pace of life. Rural walks from the doorstep or further afield. Remember that most places will be shut from about 12.30-14.30 or beyond so plan ahead. No hesitation whatsoever in recommending a stay here. Merci Beaucoup P and H

It was perfectly located for visiting all the surrounding area had to offer. The rooms were well furnished and the Gite had all the comforts of home. The pool was superb. Our only suggestion would be to provide fans for when the night time temperature is hot. Great holiday and nice to meet Laurence and Arnaud.
