Robert, the owner, was very hospitable ensuring that our stay was a very pleasant one. The farmhouse is very spacious, clean and with all the amenities at hand. Our children really enjoyed swimming in the pool, playing in the extensive garden and playing table tennis. The Chaunay region is both peaceful, idyllic and is centrally located for a number of great family days out, eg. Futuroscope and La Vallee Des Singes. We would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a holiday in this part of France.

The Gite is a good size for 2 people and the outside space is vast with numerous seating and dining areas and an above ground pool to keep you cool. We were made very welcome by Ben on arrival and as we had late on a Sunday evening he very kindly had provided a 'welcome basket' of food and drinks, including bread, fresh fruit and fridge items including milk and butter. There are extra touches at this property thoughtfully provided by the owner. The Gite itself has a large bedroom, a good size bathroom, a mezzanine lounge area with TV and a good size kitchen dining area. WIFI is also provided. Whilst staying at the property we had a couple of days out and visited La Rochelle & Rochefort on the coast (approx. 1 hr 45mins drive), and a visit to Cognac and the surrounding area.

She really does take constructive comments on board and strives to continuously improve the property which is difficult as it's already excellent. Location is idyllic in a lovely quiet village but with easy access to nearby towns, villages and facilities. Property is spotlessly clean and the towels and linen good quality if you opt to take the linen pack. Sarah-Jane, Gerald, the children and Biscotte the cat make you feel very welcome and we will certainly return. Some super days out - kayaking, Angers, tank museum Saumur and numerous trips to villages and chateaux. We were also lucky to see he Tour de France on the 4th leg from Saumur to Limoges which was a thrilling experience and one to repeat in the future. Great area for cycling too - surrounded by numerous quiet roads. If you are interested in wine make sure you speak to Gerald and get some excellent recommendations. A visit to Les Tontons the family's bistro in Saumur is a must do. A bientot.
