We have just returned from a wonderful week, with extended family ranging in age from 1 to 83! The property was a delight to stay in with everything provided of the highest quality and everyone was able to relax and enjoy the extensive grounds, activities provided and, of course, the pool. The ground floor bedroom was a Godsend too for my mother who cannot do the stairs.
David looked after us so well, nothing was too much trouble and it was a pleasure to meet the owner, Hugues, on the day we left. The local towns and villages have everything you need if you don't want to go far (which we didn't, given the temperature and our elderly relatives) but we enjoyed the market on Wednesday in Connerré and the delights of the boulangeries in Tuffé!
The only downside was that the week flew by and we hadn't booked for longer. We will be back, though..
Mille mercis, monsieur et madame de Vauplane, et à la prochaine!
Looking for a no frills getaway in a beautiful location this is the place for you. Ideal for Le Mans which is an easy 25 minute drive away. The owner Benoit lives on site in a separate house. Very helpful but never intrusive. His cocker spaniel is very friendly and often nips around when the bbq goes on! The house is set on its own in its own grounds and not overlooked.
Gite itself is clean and has all the basics you need. Large fridge is a bonus. Be mindful the Gite is owned by a French man not an expat so the furnishings and colour schemes may be a bit strange to us English, as is the half bath. Plenty of hot water. Take your own plug converters.
Sitting out at nightime under the pergola was a delight. Excellent value. If you are looking for a little piece of French country living this could well be the place for you.
