We provide free WiFi and have a 12 mtrs x 6 mtrs indoor swimming pool across the lawn from the cottage with a new built extension which houses various keep fit machines. The local area is very quiet and ideal for a relaxing break although near enough to the town of Chateau Gontier with all the usual amenities (Supermarkets,Restaurants,etc) also has a large street market which takes over the town every Thursday morning. The race track at LeMans is within an hours drive as are the large towns of Angers and Laval. WW2 battlefields and Museums are within easy reach by car. Cycle hire is available in C.Gontier, there are lots of local cycle routes including by the river where locks are in use.

The Muscadet wine region is easy to get to where many small, family run, vinyards will welcome you for a tasting. There are lots of other attractions in the area, literature for many of these is in the cottage, there is also a good tourist centre in C.Gontier, the staff are very helpful. A security deposit of £150 or 200euro is payable upon arrival and is returned 7 days from departrure date after an inspection of the property.

Excellent relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was equipped with everything you could need and the swimming pool was fantastic for cooling down on a hot day. Mike and Marlene were the perfect hosts who are prepared to go out of their way to ensure you have a great time. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much.

Great location and lovely cottages

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a great holiday here. The cottage was very spacious and was well equipped with everything you could need. A real home from home. It was also beautifully clean and very well maintained. The garden was perfect for children and the swimming pool was a real bonus.

The owners, Mike and Marlene were very friendly and welcoming and provided a lovely welcome pack on our arrival.

The area is very peaceful but is only 10 minutes away from some picturesque towns and villages. The surrounding area was perfect for walking and biking.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend these cottages. We are hoping to return next year.

Thanks for a great holiday Mike and Marlene.

Farm set in nice, quiet countryside location

  • 5 of 5

Hi Marlene & Mike.

Thank you for providing us with such a relaxing holiday, the setting is wonderful and so peaceful. The pool was a definate hit ! As we booked at the last minute and

on reading the previous review we thought there would be three holiday cottages on site ! So we were pleasantly surprised to find Geranium is one of three but Fuchsia is kept for

family and friends while Wisteria is still being renovated for your own use. Loads of room in the cottage and very clean.

The welcome pack was a life saver, so much more in it than we anticipated. Thanks for the sample of your own home made pate and the receipe. Lots to see and do in local area, will

be back again ! Thanks for one of our best ever holidays.

P.S. (Future Holidaymakers) Ask Mike about making you a family paella one night, its better than eating out.

We are a family of 4, having just returned from a week stay.

The cottage is 1 of 3 on the site. The cottage was large, clean, well presented with all the things you would usually expect from home, such as coffee machine, washer, microwave and private BBQ.

The cottage also had a number of thoughtful home touches that you would not get in a hotel, including toys/books for the children, complimentary toiletries and a welcome pack of groceries (which was a life saver after 14 hr drive from the UK).

It is clear that a great deal of effort has been made by the owners to ensure that we had a comfortable and pleasant stay.

Each property has it own covered, private terraced area for outside dining.

The owners live on the plot, but separately and were on hand for queries about the cottage and tips on local shopping and tourism.

We found Mike and Marlene to be just the right side of helpful, but not intrusive .

The owners have opened up the back of the property to allow the kids to play freely, safely and securely.

There is a vast, above ground pool which we found cold but the owners are in the process of adding heating to.

Personally, it would have been helpful if there was a facility for a smaller, children's pool (even an inflatable one) but I believe that any child that can already swim would have no problem using the large, upright pool.

The cottage is very quiet, the only traffic being from passing tractors, but it situated a mere ten minute drive away from main town facilities such as bank, restaurants and the supermarket.

I would like to thank Mike and Marlene for helping us have such a great stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this property to others.
