Relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and very well equipped. There is plenty of outside space to explore and the beautiful chateau is a particular highlight. The pool is a fabulous addition and kept the kids entertained even though it is a short distance from the house. There are a couple of lovely seating/eating areas that we made use of.

A couple of suggestions:

- the shower in the main bathroom needs some maintenance

- some information in English regarding market days, places to visit and where to put rubbish/recycling would be helpful.

However, the owners were very helpful and friendly and more than happy to answer any questions.

All in all, a lovely holiday - we would definitely return.

Fabulous !!

  • 5 of 5

What a calm and relaxing place to stay!

Upon our arrival we were greeted with a lovely basket of fresh vegetables from the garden. The house has everything you wish for, a very functional open plan kitchen, two comfortable, cosy living rooms, five spacious bedrooms and the game room is just what you wish for young kids. Barbecue in the beautiful courtyard is a must. The private grounds are great for walking, running or cycling. With a group of 10, the house is so big it was a pleasure to spend time together without feeling on top of each other. The pool is amazing and the orangeraie's a great bonus.

We'd like to thank our lovely host Ghislain and Marie Laetitia de la Grandière for their warm welcome. We already miss "La Faultrière" and hope to go back soon.

A très bientôt et merci encore pour ce séjour memorable

A beautiful place for a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The property is even better than the photographs suggest as it is so much larger than you imagine, which means everyone could have their own space when needed! The hosts were friendly and helpful and very apologetic when the internet didn't work for a few days. The pool is a short walk from the house but has it's own little kitchen, so you don't have to go back to the house when you want a drink. The table outside the kitchen window meant eating outside was easy and then there was another enclosed courtyard which was ideal to relax in and read a book or have a drink in the evening. Nearby there is a river where you can hire bicycles and cycle along the river bank and we enjoyed a boat ride with binoculars supplied so you can watch the wildlife.We didn't get to the theme park as you need to book well in advance (the evening show is part of the ticket...we thought we would be able to book the day separately from the evening show but that is not the case.) We didn't have a single complaint about this holiday home and would highly recommend it!

"Calme, luxe et volupté...."

  • 5 of 5

Remercions nos hôtes pour la qualité des lieux et leur amabilité.

Le gîte baigne au milieu des senteurs du jardin et des chants d’oiseaux.

Chaque pièce du RdC invite aussi bien à tous se rassembler ou à trouver intimité en petits groupes.

A noter le confort apporté en cuisine par la présence de 2 lave-vaisselle et le matériel de cuisine en grande quantité!.

A l’étage les chambres sont généreuses par les volumes, l’équipement, la literie.

A l’extérieur les cours permettent de savourer la douceur de l’air et profiter du soleil comme de l’ombre, ou encore profiter du BBQ de nuit à la lumière des éclairages électriques ou bougies.

A l’écart, la piscine -d’une eau exceptionnellement claire et inodore- et ses abords nous ont comblé par un décor absolument paisible et rafraîchissant.

Côté logistique, toutes les commodités sont accessibles en quelques minutes en voiture.

Voilà pour quelques impressions de nos jours passés –trop vite- à La Faultrière et qui nous ont donné envie d’y revenir.

Superbe location, grands espaces, très plaisant !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accueil lors de notre arrivée, nous avions loué cette grande maison (juste à côté d'un très joli château) pour 10 adultes, et 6 enfants ! Grande piscine très agréable, superbe endroit où il est très plaisant de se promener. La salle de jeu a eu un succès fou auprès des enfants. Encore merci aux propriétaires, qui nous ont proposer de nous prêter les lits et chaises bébé.

La maison est spacieuse, les chambres sont grandes, la cuisine est très opérationnelle, 2 frigos pour stocker les grosses courses, barbecue, machine à glaçon, ... Tout est là pour un super séjour !

Perfect verblijf op een zeer bijzondere locatie

  • 5 of 5

Je verblijft in de tot woonhuis verbouwde stallen van kasteel La Faultriere (op honderd meter van de woning).

Alles is prima ingericht, tot en met de grote terrassen. Het zwembad met orangerie is mooi, schoon en groot, zij het dat het 200 meter van de woning ligt. Wie van koken houdt kan uitstekend uit de voeten hier. Twee vaatwassers zijn handig bij een volledige bezetting. Wifi is voldoende, met beperkt bereik (mediakamer en directe omgeving). Soms merk je dat het huis kleine onvolkomenheden heeft, maar je bent op vakantie.

In de buurt vind je enkele prima wijnboeren en Savennieres is slechts 20 autominuten. In La Jumelliere is niets te doen, supermarkten op 6 kilometer -Leclerc, Super-U. Restaurants zijn dun gezaaid hier. Bakker in La Jumeliere of La Boulangerie in Chemille (iets voorbij Leclerc). Fietsen is goed te doen, ook met e-bikes.

Eigenaar Ghislain de la Grandiere en zijn dochter Phillipine zijn leuke en attente mensen die met recht trots zijn op hun (vakantie-)woning met vele authentieke elementen. De foto's geven slechts een fractie weer van de schoonheid van het huis, het interieur, de terrassen en de directe omgeving.

Kortom: sterk aanbevolen.
