L'Abbaye is a beautiful gite set just outside the quiet village of Sace. The hosts Jacques and Benedicte were very friendly and helpful and the children Colombe and Felix were delightful.
The gite has a large lounge with plenty of seating. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. The additional fridge freezer in the utility room was great and this room also gave additional storage space. The WiFi which hadn't been expected was a great bonus and very welcome, especially from our teenagers. Outside the gardens were spacious with plenty of different seating areas to catch the sun at all times of the day. The pool was incredibly clean and very refreshing on a hot day (depth of 1.5m throughout). We even had fresh eggs from the chickens - delicious!
L'Abbaye is very tranquil with only the occasional tractor or the cock crowing to be heard. This gite was a perfect place for us to have an incredibly relaxing holiday.
We enjoyed playing tennis in the village, kayaking at Laval and cycling along the Mayenne (bike hire in Laval). If you're looking for a restaurant we would recommend L'Andol in Andouille for excellent French cuisine.
Thank you Jacques and Benedicte for the perfect holiday.
Very comfortable and nice gite in a lovely rural surrounding. Simon and Zara were very helpful and friendly. The pool was lovely and well used by us. We didn't bring our dog but there was a secure area to let dogs run around and for more obedient dogs than ours there was plenty of space to mooch and sniff around. There are some nice walks from the gite into Carelles and also Saint Denis de Gastines. Fougeres a great place to visit. We visited at a very quiet time of year but we managed to hire bikes at Saint Fraimbault and had a go on the velo rail at Ambrees de Valles. Restaurant wise there was not too much open whilst we were there but Table Normande in Ernee was traditional French fare. Nice service. Would also recommend On Y in Fougeres. Excellent service, buzzy ambiance and good food. In short A great base and place to kick back and relax. We had a very nice week.
