If you want a tranquil rural setting, only a few kilometres from villages, shops and some restaurants, and a good base to explore the Loire region, this is the place. Comfortable, very clean gîte for two or two and a child, well equipped, and with a small pool you share with the owners: they are lovely people, very helpful with suggestions for restaurants, vineyards etc, and they left us a few small items as a welcome, including Madame's excellent jam..... The pool is ideal for a break after a hard day's touring: the garden is large and backs onto open fields. The only sounds are the birds, and tractors. We value that. We also had a meal with our hosts - book 24 hours in advance - excellent food, good wines, and good conversation in French and English (Franglais?). There were clear instructions re finding it, and the st nav worked well, even if it did tempt us onto some gravel roads.

Owners Sarah-Jane and Gerald are outstandingly welcoming and helpful, and many of their guests have returned several times: we have stayed there twice, because we felt it is a special place and wanted to return for another visit. The historic town of Montreuil-Bellay is close by, with all necessary amenities and a very nice little restaurant. Saumur with its fine chateau is within easy reach, as are a number of other Loire chateaux and the historic cities of Angers and Tours. Unhesitatingly recommended.

There is also an operating manual on how to use things in the apartment. One of the reasons we selected this location was the feature of parking was listed. We kept moving the car around local car parks, as the local manager said there wasn't parking. Would definitely stay at this location again.
