Catherine and Laurent are excellent 'hosts', ensuring we were fully informed and provided for. Their English is good and they really made us welcome.
We were a family party of 9 adults and 3 children aged 10, 3 and 19 months staying in the gite. The gite is spacious and very well equipped with a good selection of pots, pans, dishes, plates etc for large parties. We used the pool area for all our meals and socialising, seating 14 comfortably around the table.
The gite does have some tricky steps to access the sleeping areas in the annexes and were not suitable for the children, some of the adults struggled too! However, I would still highly recommend this gite for all ages. If it is a concern just check it out with Catherine and Laurent.
The location is great. Nearby cafes and restaurants, for takeaway and eat in. The centre of the town is within easy walking distance, but hilly. A beautiful play park and lake. Some of the party went kayaking on the river and on the
Velorail. We were in the region for a family wedding which absorbed - in a very lovely way - half of our stay, so our exploring was quite limited and relaxation much required. The young members visited the monkey zoo about 45 minutes away and we all took a drive out to the town of Laurais and just beyond to the river where we could swim.
I would love to return for another stay! Thank you Catherine and Laurent.
