Excellent little gem of a property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic 12 days at this place. Julia and Trevor were perfect hosts and were very happy to help us out when needed. We traveled with 3 children under 9 and the whole time we were there we knew the children were safe around the property. They loved going to the large field at the side of the cottage to look for grasshoppers. We enjoyed many days out at the local hotspots such as bagnoles de Lorne, Lassey and the man made beach at sille. You can access all amenities within a 15 minute drive or you can stay by the pool and cottage for the day which has plenty of sun loungers. We made full use of the BBQ most evenings and sampled plenty of wines from the local supermarkets :-)

We were lucky enough to be staying while there was a local carboot and car show at javron which was fantastic, great atmosphere. If you want a peaceful family Holiday then this is the place for's away from everything apart from the odd tractor that may pass by but also just a short drive from many lovely places.

We could not fault this holiday and hope to return soon.

Thanks again Trevor and Julia for making our stay so great.

Great accommodation and location.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the Gites is great, we travelled to Paris, Mont St Michael, Bayeux and Le Mans as well as local sites. The Gites were clean and comfortable and Trevor and Julie were hugely helpful. Our kids loved the swimming pool and rarely left it - it made the holiday extra special. Trevor also ensured that it was regularly cleaned. As well as lots of birds of prey, the Gites are great for spotting deer and star gazing in the evening. Overall.a great location, lovely people and only regret is leaving the sunshine and returning home to rain!

Brilliant holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here and would go again.

Very clean and tidy, Trevor was very welcoming and gave lots of advice without imposing on our holiday.

The gite is situated in a very nice part of France, with very friendly people and places to visit.

The web site description was accurate and yes we would definitely recommend this gite to friends.

We loved it, again!

  • 4 of 5

Dear Trevor and Julia,

We had such a wonderfull time again! The garden was even more beautiful than three years ago. The children loved the swimmingpool, the garden, the chickens and of course your enthusiasm and kindness! It was great that we had time to chat and to have a drink. ;-)

We even discovered more nice, interesting and beautiful spots to visit! So it was a whole different vacation than three years ago, but with the same hospitality.

It's a great place to discover and maybe an even better place to return to. As well for adults and children.

Thank you for all!

Family relaxation and fun

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week with Trevor and Julia.

Nothing was too much trouble. They listened to our expectations of our break with our two ten year olds and offered lots of ideas of where to go, what to see and suggestions for places to eat. The arrangement encourages other guests to share the facilities, play and relax together, once the children have retired for the evening.

The regular egg collection( or egg expectation runs) from the chickens, kept the children running back and forth, and there was a lot of excitement when there was an egg!

The pool was warm and clean, the children made full use of the facility and having the ability to dry the costumes and towels on the line, meant we were ready to indulge at every opportunity.

The gite was well equipped, it was nice to find a hair dryer had been supplied.

We had a very good holiday, our hosts were genuinely nice people who appreciate, that this is your break and do their best to make sure you get the most from your time with them.

Thank you

Linda, Dave, Jack & Gracie.

The local village of Javron les Chapelles has a boulangerie for your breakfast bread and croissants. Madré has an Eco-Museum depicting rural life in the 19th century, and sign-posted country walks. You will love exploring Mayenne (allegedly France’s best-kept secret), with its streams, rivers, and forests. There are wild flowers in abundance, and you may see a red squirrel or a kingfisher. This region has some of the clearest skies in France. The starry nights here will take your breath away! Not forgetting the many churches, castles and Roman remains. Fifteen minutes away is the spa town of Bagnoles de l’Orne with its excellent restaurants, traditional shops, golf course, lake, casino, sporting facilities and a large supermarket.

And for the car enthusiasts, Le Mans is only 65 minutes away and the Classic Car Convention at Javron Les Chapelles, which is held every August, is 5 minutes down the road.
