Great location

  • 5 of 5

The gite was easy to find using Sat/Nav when address is entered.

The gite was of a high standard and very well furnished with a charming decor. Spotlessly clean.

The owners were friendly and informative with plenty of information on the surrounding area.

I would recommend this gite to all my friends for a peaceful and tranquil break.

Good for bird watching, cycling and walking. Interesting chateau's within easy access by car.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The gite was lovely - clean, peaceful and exceptionally-priced. We loved sitting outside every evening, sipping wine and eating cheese! Our little girl enjoyed saying hello to the goat and playing on the front lawn!

Peacefull holidays

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable Gite ideal for two people in quiet and pretty countryside. Its a perfect base for a cycling and site seeing holiday. Rita and Alan were perfect hosts, unobtrusive but there should you need anything. The nearby town of Pouance is lovely and the nearby Blue Mine is well worth a visit.

A hidden treasure!

  • 5 of 5

This pretty gite has everything that a tourist to the area needs; from its very friendly hosts, to its comfortable big bed (with a sofa bed if you need), from its lovely bathroom to the BBQ outside. And did I mention the views? And The village of Armaille is the prettiest I have seen.

Lovely Gite

  • 5 of 5

The Gite is lovely. It has been restored to a beautiful living/sleeping/eating/space, with everything you could possible need and is spotlessly clean. Rita and Alan are very nice people who are very much in the background unless you need them. Armaille is an extremely pretty village with the river running through. There is a small bar in the village, which seems to open at will! We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, this is your place.

Set in a beautiful rural location in the pretty village of Armaille, near Pouance in the tranquil region of Western Loire , with stunning views to all directions; the Gite at Les Hetres is completely self contained, with its own patio, barbecue and private garden within the 4 acres of grounds.

Armaille is a friendly rural community surrounded by farmland, ideal for cycling and walking. The village has its own cafe and the river Verzee runs through the centre of the village with excellent fishing. The town of Pouance is 10 minutes away by car, where there are plenty of shops, including 2 supermarkets, several good restaurants, parks, sports centres and a man-made beach next to a very large lake, where you can hire pedal boats, or fish from the other sides of the lake. There is also trout fishing nearby, set in the parc St Blaise.

Within 20 minutes drive is the larger town of Chateaubriant with excellent shops, a variety of good restaurants.
