The swimming pool is superb, plenty for children to do, snooker, table tennis etc. The grounds were lovely and so well maintained by Roger, the caretaker who was always available and most accommodating. each bedroom had its own en suite, always plenty of hot water and only a short distance from an excellent supermarket, zoo and various other places of interest.

                                                                                I hired this gîte for my family to stay while they attended our wedding weekend in nearby Grez-Neuville. Although the gîte owners were away during the period of rental, they organised for a friend, Mathilde to assist us during the stay. I cannot speak more highly of Mathilde. Nothing was too much trouble, she helped me to organise taxis for my family, organised for towels to be provided at late notice (I had got myself confused and believed that they were part of the linen package, totally my mistake) and was generally incredibly welcoming and friendly. Both Mathilde and the owner Guylaine communicated in excellent English and were genuinely a pleasure to deal with. The gîte itself was beautiful, clean and well equipped. The garden and views were stunning. My neices (and daughter!) Really appreciated the trampoline and table-football table. The gîte is very rural and the nearest village was very, very quiet (pretty much closed due to the August holidays) but just what my family were looking for so for us this was no problem. The one and only complaint (and it wasnt really a complaint!) from my family was that they would have liked enough larger teacups for people.. but i think that this is only down to us being English and liking our tea in the mornings!! You can't fit a good cup of English tea in a French coffee cup! But that is the tiniest thing and would definitely not ever stop us from thoroughly recommending your gîte!! Thank you. Xx

The house was simple but well equipped with everything you could need for a holiday including lots of maps and information. The owner was also most accommodating about our timings of arrival and departure.The village provided basics of boulangerie, general store and bar + we were delighted to find the pizza van on a Monday and a pop up summer restaurant at the weekend. The supermarket was less than 15 minutes away and the centre of Angers with plenty of easy parking not much more. We took advantage of the Angers tourist card which for 29 Euros included entrance to all the major sites in Angers and the area and included the delightful Terra Botanica "theme park". There was also canoeing and the boat on the river but only on certain days. Also on the edge of the village was a lovely lake with wooded walks and swimming beach which helped us greatly in the heatwave. Only a few minutes from the motorway system this was a great place to stay and explore a less touristy part of the Loire valley whilst having easy access to places further afield if wanted. We really enjoyed our 5 days there and would happily return.
