Really good location
We enjoyed the space and we had great time.
Sandrine and Christoph are really friendly and always helpful!
Des proprios extrêmement désagréables mais re sympa/Very annoying tenants, though beautiful location
A EVITER ! Les propriétaires sont invasifs et épient chacun de vos gestes. Aucune liberté, ils sont toujours sur votre dos, même dans les espaces extérieurs. Ils ont gâché mon week-end d'anniversaire, et nous ont forcé à rester dehors pour dîner alors qu'il faisait froid. Nous n'avons pas pu apprécier le bien loué. Le style est vieillot. Le cadre est sympathique dans les vignes mais Christophe venait même nous voir dans la piscine...Sa femme est extrêmement désagréable et n'a même pas pourvu au bon nombre de serviette ni de tapis de bain pour le gîte /The tenants stare at every move you do, they come into the house you're renting without invitation. You have no freedom even in the garden or in the pool where Christophe come to talk to you !! They ruined my birthday when forcing me and my friends to have diner outside with cold weather. You can't enjoy with your friends or family the house you're renting. The furniture is old. The location is good but the tenants make it so bad especially the wife who is very unwelcoming and forgot the towels that were in the deal. JUST DON'T !
A unique property in the perfect spot.
We had a lovely couple of weeks at moulin placette. The location is perfect with stunning views and so many places to visit nearby. Loved Angers, Samur, Brissac castle, Cholet, all within half an hour. We also has a great day in Nantes taking the TGV from Anger.
Christoph and Sandrine were great hosts, always available when needed, and despite our terrible French made us very welcome. While we were staying it was our daughter Lily’s birthday, they bought her a present and came to wish her a happy birthday which was a lovely touch.
The Gites was clean and comfortable, the kids loved the pool which was cleaned every day and very well kept. The bikes were great for getting in to the village for morning croissants and supplies.
Overall a great holiday in a wonderful place. We wish Christoph and Sandrine every success.
Angers - Has a Chateau/Castle well worth a visit, it includes the renown Apocalypse Tapestry, 103 m long illustrating the last book of the Bible written by St John. Culturally, there are museums, a magnificent Cathedral, and guided walks around the Old Town. It has an abundance of restaurants and bars, and for those that like to mix both, the Cointreau Museum.
Saumur - Beautiful town, on the River Loire. Superb Chateau. Home to the world famous Cadre Noir. A tank museum and a mushroom museum. Champigny houses, some set in the limestone caves along the river.
Open all year. accept short breaks the pool is closed in winter our friends the small annimals are accept
