The cycling path alongside the river where on a cold, bright winter's morning we saw very little other than a solitary heron from time to time provides an idyllic route into Angers. The local people were warm and friendly and Valerie, our landlady, was very friendly and helpful. Getting into the front door without being followed by a very eager black or tabby cat was an amusing challenge! We would highly recommend this apartment and location.

It is a beautifully furnished, warm and very cosy little house. We found it very clean and the kitchen was supplied with everything needed. We did enjoy our stay there and so did our dog! She loved the walks in the safe fenced area around the pond. The house is conveniently situated if you want to explore the beauty of the valley with its numerous chateaus and museums and picturesque nature, as well as for a quiet country retreat. Thank you so much, Jane! We have already recommended 'Le Petit Bijou' to friends of ours and we'll be very happy to come back again!!
