It was just as described and we immediately felt at home. The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The garden was great and it was lovely to see all the animals, and even have some fresh eggs one morning! There is a great walk route and park right by the gîte. We spent most of our weekend break in Rennes which was just over a 20 minute drive away. We enjoyed shopping in the city and walking through the beautiful Parc du Thabor. We have already recommended this property to friends and I'm sure we will be back to visit at some point again.

The apartment is well decorated and interesting with all necessary facilities. The bed is very comfy and it was easy to get a good nights sleep. Lovely little garden - great for an alfresco breakfast. Thank you for a lovely weeks holiday.

It is fully equipped with everything you could need for a very comfortable stay. Although you are set in the most beautiful countryside you are very close to many interesting towns and villages and there is plenty to see and do. Sue and Les are perfect hosts and completely respect your privacy but are on hand with a wealth of local information. If you are looking for comfort in a beautiful part of France you cannot go wrong by choosing La Morinais.
