Events and Festivals
Good holiday, lovely surroundings, very peaceful. Love the pool, tennis and games room. Weather was very kind to us, and we all enjoyed the sun. Gite very comfortable and had everything we needed. Also the fishing in the pond was lovely and had some very nice walks in the evenings. The eggs were really lovely. Thank you! The Pollingtons, August/September 2012
Thank you both for letting us use your lovely gite and amenities. The girls enjoyed the games room and we all enjoyed the pool. We have been lucky with some very warm sunny weather and have visited some lovely places. The Refuge de l'Arche in Château Gontier is worth visiting as well as the market and 'Au Bout de la Rue' in Laval is a good place to eat. Mike, Marcia, Richard, Karen, Aimée & Sophie, August 2012
Thank you Len & Annabelle for a wonderful three weeks what a great base from which to explore the region. Highlights included visiting Angers and the scenery on the Mayenne at Château Gontier was a real surprise. Fantastic pool! The Morris family, July/August 2012
We have had a lovely holiday here. The pool is beautiful and has been very popular as was the tennis court and games room. We enjoyed peaceful walks around the fields and surrounding lanes. The gite has been very comfortable too! Thank you very much. The Waudby-West family, July 2012
A good base for our trip to Le Mans Classic! Exactly suited our purpose and had the weather been better we would have been swimming! David, Chris & Tim, July 2012
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here it has been as relaxing as it can be with two small children! The gite has everything we needed. The pool and grounds are wonderful! The kids loved visiting the Animal refuge in Château Gontier and the Thursday market is well worth a visit as is the Antiques market in Angers on a Sunday. Thank you Len & Annabelle for a lovely holiday! The Morris family, June/July 2012
Thank you Len & Annabelle and boys for a lovely family holiday! Cottage is comfortable and spacious & the kids love the space to roam, the chickens & excellent facilities. We loved the peaceful evenings too! Refuge de l'Arche, Terra Botanica & Hoglodytic caves near Doué La Fontaine were enjoyed by us all! The Wakeham family, May 2012
Lovely gite and surroundings! Children enjoyed all the space and playing in the games room. Many thanks. The Hambleton family, April 2012
Really good stay, a relaxing week with plenty of interesting places to visit. Len & Annabelle were most welcoming and very helpful during a mini crisis. Excellent weather for 4 days then a bit duller but we still enjoyed travelling around some most interesting sites. Loved the swimming pool! Christine & Clinton, Janet & Mike, September 2011
Great relaxing week, exploring the local area. As big kids we really enjoyed the games room and tennis court. Many thanks. Adrian, Mary & Sophie, September 2011
