The apartment was perfect for us as a base to explore the surrounding area which is full of medieval villages.
The weather was very hot over 30C every day, but we had taken an electric fan with us fortunately as it was the only item the host did not have
L'Abbaye is a beautiful gite set just outside the quiet village of Sace. The hosts Jacques and Benedicte were very friendly and helpful and the children Colombe and Felix were delightful.
The gite has a large lounge with plenty of seating. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. The additional fridge freezer in the utility room was great and this room also gave additional storage space. The WiFi which hadn't been expected was a great bonus and very welcome, especially from our teenagers. Outside the gardens were spacious with plenty of different seating areas to catch the sun at all times of the day. The pool was incredibly clean and very refreshing on a hot day (depth of 1.5m throughout). We even had fresh eggs from the chickens - delicious!
L'Abbaye is very tranquil with only the occasional tractor or the cock crowing to be heard. This gite was a perfect place for us to have an incredibly relaxing holiday.
We enjoyed playing tennis in the village, kayaking at Laval and cycling along the Mayenne (bike hire in Laval). If you're looking for a restaurant we would recommend L'Andol in Andouille for excellent French cuisine.
Thank you Jacques and Benedicte for the perfect holiday.
