Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We booked this for our honeymoon and couldn’t have asked for better.. Barry and Gail are lovely hosts and their gite and gardens are amazing.. The pool area is secluded very clean and relaxing. Although Barry and Gail live onsite they respect your privacy at all times.. The gite is amazing larger than pics show and spotlessly clean it was a proper home from home.. If you want to stay in somewhere quiet and relaxed away from everyday pressures this is the place we had fantastic honeymoon there and will definitely be going back... I really cannot fault this place and the champagne on arrival and fresh produce was wonderful.. Thank you Barry and Gail for letting us stay in your beautiful gite and gardens and making our honeymoon memorable.. Helen & Simon

Book your stay here now!

  • 5 of 5

Barry and Gail are the perfect hosts - warm, welcoming and always ready to help. The gite is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped, and the grounds are amazing! The super swimming pool sits in gorgeous landscaped gardens with the occasional visit from one of the friendly animals on site, so each day spent relaxing at the gite was such a pleasure.

The local small town, Louvinge du Desert, has a decent supermarket and is just a short drive away. It is also within walking distance along part of a disused railway track, which itself is perfect for walks or cycling. There are plenty of places to visit in the locality: Fougeres was a particular favourite with its stunning views and magnificent castle in the medieval district. We also visited Mont St Michel (a bit touristy, but well worth seeing), Omaha Beach and Bayeux, all within comfortable reach.

Overall this was a fantastic holiday for us, as two adult couples, so we are hoping to return in the future. Read the other reviews and book now!

"Sanctuary" from a busy lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gail and Barry for sharing your beautiful gardens which complimented your lovely property we stayed in. Home grown garden produce was also a lovely gift from you.

The property was beautifully furnished and had its own charm and welcome....... as well as little luxuries. A well equipped kitchen was gratefully appreciated and many happy family mealtimes were had in the dining area. The gardens were our favourite place and many English tea times occurred there as well as coffee with the local patisserie's delicacies. This was our first taste of Lovigne de desert and we were not disappointed. The pool and sun house were very well equipped and complimented the garden setting. The family pets were welcoming and added to the charm. We had a good time in Brittany and there were lots of places to explore nearby as well as local walks. The supermarket nearby was very well stocked and we enjoyed trying out our little bit of French. Barry & Gail were great hosts, both kind and approachable.

Thank you

A little slice of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Having spent a few days in Louvigne recently I cannot recommend the property highly enough. It truly is a slice of heaven.

The location is very peaceful and so beautiful, the gardens and the swimming pool are wonderful and a real credit to Gail and Barry, who are great hosts.

The house itself is stunning and has every amenitiy you could possibly wish for. Fully stocked kitchen including a washing machine which is super to have on hand, dishwasher, huge fridge and a choice of cookers. There is a DVD player with DVDs provided, books provided if required. A huge folder is available of local attractions and areas of interest.

The town is within walking distance and is lovely with a supermarket, bakery, restaurants and cafes. Although for us the beautiful house and surroundings were all we needed and didnt want to leave.

Cannot wait to return.

Thanks Gail and Barry.

Absolutely stunning Gite and gardens.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this Gite last minute for our 10th Wedding anniversary. We were looking for a place to get away from our hectic lives and have some quality time together. This Gite didn't disappoint, it is absolutely stunning and has the most beautiful gardens to explore.

The owners are also genuinely warm people and couldn't help us enough with all our queries. They even booked the vet (for our dogs) and a nice restaurant for our anniversary.

The Gite feels like it's a paradise in the middle of nowhere, however it is within walking distance of a nice little village with all the amenities you need. It sits right next to a disused railway track that goes on for miles, making it perfectly situated for a good stroll, cycle or walking the dogs.

We spent most of our holiday exploring the local area, visiting one of the many markets in a nearby town, which was selling the most fantastic Paella.

We also spent lots of time sitting by the pool with a glass of (cheap and lovely) French wine, feeling like we were staying at a rock stars house.

We would definitely recommend booking this Gite to couples wanting to get away from it all whilst still having the option to explore many of the regions historical sites, beaches and markets.

We could imagine that this Gite would also be perfect for families, as the pool and the many animals on site would keep most children entertained.

We would definitely love to book this place again and wish Barry, Gail and their family of animals a successful and fruitful future.
