                                              Impressive and comfortable property

                                              5 of 5
                                              This is without doubt the sweetest place we have ever been to. Small but perfect for me and my husband. The swimming looks over a huge panoramic of the french vineyards, which was amazing and the hot tub and american fridge that also dispensed ice cubes was great. There's a little town really close which was perfect to get bread and food in the morning and it also has a few restaurants which was great. It's super private and surprising well kitted out for a small property. This place feels like concentrated france! I recommend.

                                              Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful location

                                              5 of 5
                                              From start to finish the holiday was amazing and the bonus was the beautiful and comfortable accommodation. Nothing was forgotten in this quaint and luxury accommodation. The property has so much wonderful character and is spotlessly clean with an extremely comfortable bed. Wonderful shower with plenty of hot water. The accommodation is so quite but you are in the heart of Fontevraud village. Just around the corner is a wonderful bakery, pop the kettle on in the morning and have a slow walk to the bakery for your croissants and as you come back the kettle would have just boiled its that close. There are some fabulous restaurants in the village and also a little shop and a pizza restaurant which also do takeaway, no need to get the car out and also the Abbey is only a few meters away which is a must to visit. Everyone is so friendly in the village and will happily help with your French even if it as poor as mine. The owners of the property have made sure that there is nothing forgotten in this property to make it an excellent stay. Will defiantly stay again.
