                                                                          We stayed at Dominique's beautiful house for just under two weeks, and the place is idyllic. We chose this house due to the indoor pool, just in case the weather wasn't so good, but you can have the sliding doors along the long wall open and then it feels like an outdoor pool. The extensive gardens and grounds, no idea how many acres but it's quite a few, means you are not overlooked. The setting is fabulous, in a heavily wooded area, and at the bottom of the garden is the Villaine river, and there are extensive paths on both sides. We are horse-lovers and there is a horse living at the property, which just added to the magic. The house itself is divided into two parts, the older part with large living room, dining room, kitchen and utlity room, and the newer part with the large pool, shower room and toilet downstairs, and four bedrooms, bathroom and toilet upstairs. My family and I have no hesitation in recommending this property. The house itself, both inside and outside is lovely, and the large gardens and grounds are beautiful, making for an ideal family holiday residence. Within a few miles you have a choice of lots of restaurants (just be aware they may not be open every day), a decent supermarket (Super U) in Messac.
