We were warmly welcomed by Juul and Johan and felt straight away at home. The evening of our arrival, Juul and Johan had cooked a lovely dinner for all the guests, which was a great way to getting to know everyone. On Sunday we also joined in with the pizza making evening, which was a wonderful and tasty experience and again we sat around the table with all the other guest which was lovely. We spend a lot of time in the wonderful huge garden and at the swimming pool. We had our dog Lola with us, who loved having the space to move around. The gite was very luxurious, without losing it's rustic character and had absolutely everything we needed and the beds where extremely comfortable, so we all slept very well. We had relaxing days as a family and a few evenings we had BBQ's with another family staying there, which was a lot of fun. Juul and Johan are always there to help and show you things to do in the area. It felt very private where every gite had their own separate area to sit outside. All in all a great place to stay if you're after a relaxing holiday away in the French countryside, with still all the comforts of home. I highly recommend and we will definitely come back again.

This place was amply big enough for our party of 4 adults and 2 children. It is totally on its own amidst crop and pasture land 10 minutes drive from the nearest village (butchers, bakers keeping typically French opening hours. Indeed, as mid-August is slap bang in the middle of the French holiday season we found that about 1/4 of all cafes, restaurants and shops were closed for the season! Part of the attraction is that this is not really tourist France and English was the exception rather than the rule. There are a number of small towns and villages within easy driving distance which are worth a visit and each small town has its own supermarket which have excellent opening times. Le Mans is probably the largest town within reach - an easy 40 minute drive away. We absolutely loved the swimming pool and were surprised by how big it is. The pool cover (easy enough to take off and put on) kept it beautifully warm and it was exceptionally well-maintained by the property manager. On sunny days it was really hot round the pool and the kids spent ages in the water. The house is very well appointed - settees in the living room were comfortable, the kitchen had all the equipment, utensils and machinery you could want. In our experience the living room would benefit from better lighting for that post 9pm period. The TV provided British Freeview channels and the games and books provided in the house were welcome. We were pleasantly surprised to find a small "Welcome Pack" waiting for us - milk, butter, bread, wine, toilet paper which we were not expecting. The owners should advertise this as it is very much a plus point. There was a wide variety of cleaning equipment, tea towels and just enough hand towels to get by. I would say the lack of bath towels (which we knew about) is a negative point as we had to bring a load with us from UK. Sleeping arrangements offer great flexibility, although bedroom furniture is getting a bit tatty. There was unlimited hot water for baths and showers. The photos and information on HomeAway give a good representation of the property and communication with the owners was swift and reliable. Their local "manager" is a star!
