A very relaxing New Year

5 of 5
We had a very relaxing week in Abbaye Cottage. Lucy's attention to detail, quality furnishings and equipment make for a very comfortable stay, the log burner was heaven in the evenings. Lucy was very welcoming and though we are fairly self sufficient, I think if we had needed anything, nothing would have been too much trouble. The Loire area is lovely, even in a very chilly January, in the Spring we are sure it will be stunning. Le Plantagenet restaurant just round the corner from the house was a great stop for a New Years Day meal, and Fontavraud Abbey is well worth a visit. Abbaye Cottage is highly recommended!

Perfect in every way

5 of 5
The apartment was warm, cosy and well equipped and located close to the river in a quiet village a few kilometres from the city of Angers. 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.

A gem in the Loire Valey

5 of 5
We had an amazing weak in this lovely typical French cottage in the small village of Moulihern. 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!!
