We spent a lovely week in August in Grooms Cottage. Anita and Richard are fantastic hosts - they allowed us to look around their beautiful chateau, and we had some lovely walks in the grounds and orchards.
The pool is a great size and the cover helped on some slightly cooler days, worth noting that the pool is shared with chateau guests and the other rental property. Richard has a number of inflatables he regularly blows up for guests which is a lovely touch!
The cottage itself is very spacious especially the bedrooms and the original character really stands out. The furnishings etc are fairly basic, but the kitchen was well equipped. We had a lovely, relaxing week exploring the local area and would recommend to others who want their own piece of rural France for a week. Thanks again to Anita and Richard for sharing their home.
First impressions were great, electric gates open up onto a private drive and gardens, the owner is polite and accommodating.
The heated pool and gardens are really excellent, 5*.
General living areas are all fine, large dining tables inside and out, large TV, WifFi, sauna, games room with pool table, table tennis, tennis etc. 5*
UK visitors should note that their are only 2 toilets for the whole house and these are separate from the bathrooms, no windows, by UK standards the toilets need to be revised.
This is a very quiet area of Sarthe/ Loire, and we found that many of the shops and bars were closed during August. Mainly a non English speaking area. We enjoyed the village centre, touring around local villages, and a trip down to busy Le Mans (40 mins), and Coco Lake (10 mins).
A good place to relax.
