Un séjour parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loue les 2 grands gites (la haie et le laitier) pour une "Cousinade" . Les gîtes très spacieux et bien décorés, la piscine géniale (et sans accès autre que par les gîtes : donc sécurisé pour les enfants) et les animaux (poney, chiens, chat, chevaux poules et âne) ont fait le bonheur des 10 enfants et des 12 parents !

On y retournera sûrement ! À recommander vivement.

Merci aux propriétaires : gentils et aidants en toute discrétion !

Le bonheur

  • 5 of 5

Très beau séjour. Nous avons été très bien accueilli par nos hôtes, Nathalie et son mari. Tout était parfait dans ce petit paradis entouré de champs de tournesols. Nous étions 2 familles avec 5 enfants. Ils étaient bien occupés avec tous les jeux extérieurs et la piscine. Nous avions beaucoup d'espace et tout était très propre. La localisation était parfaite pour visiter les attraits de la Loire.
