A fantastic property in a great location with superb hosts in Pascal and Huguette ??!!....sorry but you did acknowledge that it was an unusual name!! We stumbled upon this beauty of a holiday destination by chance and feel so lucky that we did. There were only the two of us but the property caters for at least another 2 adults and a baby/toddler. Extremely spacious and well equipped with the added bonus of seeing wild deer roaming in the extensive garden. Cannot fault anything about this cottage but do make sure that you get Pascal's WiFi password then be prepared to stand in the garden or on the decking for your reception! But who needs internet connections when the aim is to get away from it all. Lots of lovely minor French roads to get about as well as major highways to access the larger towns/cities like Nantes (Les Machines, Cathedral, Chateau and much more) and Angers (Chateau and old town buildings and much more). We found satnav a must for getting about but this was our first driving visit to France so others may be more able. Too many places to mention including the above but the slightly larger towns are all well equipped with supermarkets and fuel stations as well as churches, chateaux by the bucket load and a slower pace of life. Rural walks from the doorstep or further afield. Remember that most places will be shut from about 12.30-14.30 or beyond so plan ahead. No hesitation whatsoever in recommending a stay here. Merci Beaucoup P and H
The accomodation was well designed and thought out, very clean and a real home from home. The owners Pam and Mark went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and the kids had different inflatables to play with in the pool as well as bikes, table tennis, pool, tennis courts and of course plenty of fishing, and loads of really good sized carp onto the bank (Mark will supply your tackle. and coaching, if you don't know what you're doing - for a small charge).
The accomodation itself is joined to the owners house, but it's a very peaceful and relaxing place to unwind and relax.
There is a great bakery a few miles away, and there are plenty of restaurants, shops and supermarkets in the nearby Chateaubriant, and many things to do in the local area. A great place for a holiday, with the extra benefit of some good fishing for carp.
