Wonderful house and environment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Watermill in late July this year and were greatly impressed with both the house and it's setting. The photographs on the website do not do it justice. The house is tastefully furnished and more than enough space to accommodate the four adults and two youngsters who made up our party. The cutlery,crockery and furnishings were of a high quality and the three sittings rooms(one with tv was upstairs which worked extremely well for us). The outside space was well kept and the pool was brilliant. The pool was cleaned early morning on four days although it did't appear to need it but is an indication of the care which Stephane has about the property.Lovely outside spaces to dine and catch the sun. One of the best rentals we have had in twenty years of visits to France.

Good shopping at a nearby and convenient Super U and a terrific boulangerie in nearby Loue.

Impressive, well renovated old Mill house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautiful old Mill house that is situated in a very quiet pretty rural location not far from Le Mans. The house was excellent and far exceeded the description above and now includes a newly installed heated pool which proved fantastic fun for everyone especially the kids. The Mill stream that runs next to the property also proved to be great fun, there is a 2 person canoe – well one adult & 2/3 kids possibly – and you can paddle easily along the shallow water past fields and past many cows, I also saw a Hoopoe which made my day! We also (well the kids) caught many small fish and some crayfish (I think the native variety?) which may have been tasty but we put them back, the responsible thing to do. The property has everything that’s needed and more – it’s a very easy house to enjoy. Le Mans is only 30 minutes away and is a beautiful city with many things to do, including a spectacular evening light show all around the old city, well worth seeing (use the tram from the University – runs to the small hours). The owner is very pleasant and leaves you alone although lives close by and I’m sure would be willing to help in any situation. Enjoy.

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded our expectations - which were high already, based on the photos - on all fronts; charming house, beautifully and tastefully modernized, quiet, relaxing, sublime, sitting next to a creek. Lovely pool just completed. All that, and the owners are the nicest people you could hope to meet. We did not want to leave...... We will be back.

moment parfait dans cadre parfait

  • 5 of 5

Un week-end entre amis parfait en partie grâce à cet endroit magnifique.

Les chambres sont spacieuses, la literie de qualité supérieure, avec salles d'eau (dont l'une pour laquelle nous sommes tout de même rentrés à 8 sans problème dans une même douche pour tester)

La cuisine et équipement sont neufs et complets pour tous les repas que l'on souhaite faire.

Soirées au coin de la cheminée à refaire le monde dans ce havre de paix.

Les services (canoé et accessoires pour la pêche) mis à dispositions sont un complément vraiment appréciables.

La piscine est jolie et sécurisée, parfait pour les familles avec enfants.

Il ne manque plus que le petit terrain de pétanque pour nous combler mais vraiment parce qu'il faut trouver quelque chose.

Encore un grand grand merci aux propriétaires pour leur extrême gentillesse et disponibilité.

Une très bonne adresse à retenir que nous avons hâte de retrouver et que nous recommandons vivement

Un séjour formidable

  • 5 of 5

Le moulin est un havre de paix caché dans la verdure. La maison spacieuse est très bien équipée et très confortable.

La piscine chauffée est un régal . Nous avons passé un séjour hélas trop court mais excellent !

Merci aux propriétaires pour leur disponibilité et gentillesse. Nous recommandons cette location à des amis .

Un havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Encore un week-end entre amis parfait et cette demeure charmante y contribue fortement.

Les services mis à dispositions sont digne d'un grand hotel.

Chambres spacieuses, et aménagement de qualité.

Cuisine et équipement qui en rendrait jaloux plus d'un.

Piscine jolie et sécurisée, parfait pour les familles avec enfants.

Il ne manque plus que le petit terrain de pétanque pour nous combler, après une petite partie de pêche rendu possible par le biai de la rivière attenant à la demeure.

Encore merci aux propriétaires pour leurs gentillesse et superbe accueil.

Une très bonne adresse à retenir qui nous lassera jamais.
