Customer Reviews 

Mary, Tony & Stuart (8)

We have had a lovely week here although all too short. Rosemary is a wonderful host and so very helpful. The gite is really all we could wish for in any area and contains all we could need. A visit to the Zoo at La Flèche is a must as it is the most wonderful place. We shall certainly visit again before too long.

Rosemary, thank you for hosting us at Le Grand Villette. We enjoyed our stay in very peaceful surroundings. You are a very helpful host and we also enjoyed meeting Vincent and his young family; his English is 'très bien' and we shared a 'Ricard'. The location is good for Sillé le Guillaume (beach), Le Mans and we also had a memorable climb up the Tour Eiffel. Best wishes!

Had a hugely enjoyable 2 weeks here. Perfect location - not too far from the ferry port but south enough for glorious weather, rural, peaceful feel but close enough to good amenities for groceries & activities. Lovely, well equipped gite with good sized pool and great barn with table tennis & pool table. However the USP has to be Rosemary, the owner - she is a truly fabulous person - helpful beyond the call of duty when our car broke down, amusing and very knowledgeable about the area. Things were particularly enjoyed whilst here were a trip to Paris on the TGV train, the 'Chimères' in Le Mans at night & Sillé Plage. I don't think it will be a surprise to find us coming back here!

Our 3rd visit & still a great place to stay! Rosemary is helpfulness personified & goes out of her way to suggest places to eat, things to do & sights to see. The pool is a great draw, even for teenagers, as is the barn. Fred the Labrador has had his usual fun with Pickle & the chickens. A must-see are the 'Chimères' in Le Mans - images projected on to buildings in the old city. Go to the 'Bistrot de la Vieille Porte' for dinner & then wait until it gets dark to see the show! When you're in the garden, keep quiet & look out for the coypus in the field, but apart from that, rest, relax & enjoy! We will no doubt be back!

This is our 1st visit to France & thanks to Rosemary & her perfect setting we have had an amazing time! Our 3 boys enjoyed the barn & pool. The accommodation was very clean & spacious & suited our large family. Our boys had an amazing experience with Pickle & the chickens & all other resident animals. Rosemary's local knowledge & helpful nature has made our 1st visit to France simply magical. A wonderful relaxed holiday & we would highly recommend this location 10/10. Thanks Rosemary.

The Westbury family

The initial description/location made us very interested & the look of the pool area & games room virtually sealed our decision. But what of any reviews? If we were keen before, the reviews settled our decision & they were spot on. Rosemary has been a fantastic host making us very welcome & giving endlessly of her time & places to visit & do. The gite is spotless & everything worked well, but be aware there is no Wi-Fi - for us looking to relax it was perfect. We have not travelled far, though some of the party visited Versailles, but we wanted a great relaxing carefree holiday which we have had. Our dog made a new friend in Pickle and also had a good holiday. Would we come again - YES next year!

We have all had a lovely relaxing week - thank you. Le Grand Villette is relaxing and like home from home. The children have loved the barn and pool. Rosemary is exceptionally helpful and a lovely lady.

A real home from home and perfect for the children & adults alike! Pickle is a joy and the children adored him. Caught the train to Paris from Le Mans and really enjoyed the day here. Rosemary is simply the best & such a help in suggesting lovely places to visit. Thank you for being the host with the most! You've made us feel so welcome especially the children. No doubt we'll miss you & Pickle!

Our 2nd visit to Le Grand Villette & we remain convinced that it is our favourite destination in France - in 17 years' experience. Rosemary is an examplary hostess and the facilities are second to none. Beaumont itself is lovely, and the surrounding towns and villages are delightful! However, the key to Le Grand Villette is total relaxation - this is a place for a real holiday!

Will & Esther Richards

We've had a fantastic time, family of six, everything was well catered for. Having the bikes here was a big bonus for exploring the surrounding area. The younger children were kept busy with the pool and a variety of games, they wouldn't have minded if it rained the whole time. Our host, Rosemary, was helpful, thank you - we will recommend your gite.
