Customer Reviews 

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. Natalie, Mike, Oliver, Emma & Sam Ambler, September 2014
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! Elaine, Neil, Mia (5) & Billy (2) Harding, August 2014
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! Sharon, Bob, Amy, James & Holly, August 2014
We said that we'd come back! Everything is still perfect for a family (plus dog). Gite is clean, well-equipped & spacious, pool & barn still more than enough to entertain a 13 & 11 year old & Rosemary is as helpful & informative as ever. Found a 'Go Ape' style tree climbing course at the lake at Sillé (Les Tyroliennes) final challenge (not for faint hearted parents!). No big supermarket open on Sundays but Cocci Market in Beaumont is open on Sunday mornings. To sum up it's a perfect spot to do nothing in - we'll be back next year for the champagne! Sarah, Malcolm, Dom & Jo Carr + Fred the black lab, July 2014
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. Will & Esther Richards, July 2014
We had a lovely comfortable stay in this spacious & well-equipped gite. The surrounding area is perfect for keen cyclists (quiet road & very quaint villages). Sillé-le-Guillaume is a great area for a plodge & there was even live music at one of the restaurants there. Le Mans was a real surprise and absolutely stunning & full of history. Rosemary was really helpful & accommodating. Best wishes for the future! Beverley & David Freeman, June 2014
Yet again (2nd visit) we have had a 'formidable' week. Weather fantastic, Rosemary really helpful and Pickle was much loved. Visited Paris via TGV from Le Mans with the kids - saw all the sites via the 'batobus' on the Seine. The lake at Sillé-le-Guillaume is really good for kids with boat hire and a sandy beach and cafés. This is the best equipped holiday house we have stayed in and we all loved the pool and barn with table tennis. Thanks again hope to see you next year. Kate, Gareth, Hattie & Eddie, August 2013
We have had a very relaxing week here at 'Le Grenier' in fact it has been so relaxing that we have hardly left it! Rosemary has made this place a real 'home from home' but with much better weather. The gite is very well equipped and we have really enjoyed lazy breakfasts, lunches and barbecues on the patio watching the cows and revelling the peace and quiet. The facilities, especially for the children, are superb. With the pool, games barn, Pickle, cats and chickens (and the novelty of 'videos') we have had a hard time getting the children out. We have enjoyed Le Mans - especially the light show at night, and the lake at Sillé. A visit to Bayeux on our way down to view the tapestry was really fascinating. Thank you Rosemary for creating such a relaxed and peaceful oasis; your friendly and welcoming manner and lovely interaction with the children have really made the holiday. Louise, Richard, Emily & Harvy Kitchin, August 2013
We have had a fantastic time here! Kids had so much to do. Fred the Labrador was free to roam & Rosemary dog-sat for us while we took a day trip to Paris. If you want to relax there's no need to leave the gite! But do take an evening/night trip into Le Mans to see the 'Chimères' (light show projected on to buildings) in the old city. Beaumont is fine for basic shopping & there are bigger supermarkets at Alençon & Le Mans. If you have active kids the 'Domaine du Gasseau' at St Léonard des Bois has an 'Acrobranches' (Go Ape) with a fabulous zip-wire finish! St Cénéri nearby is a very pretty village. Rosemary is a helpful & entertaining host, Pickle a sweet dog & the chickens produce great eggs! The gite is spacious & well-equipped - probably the best we've stayed in (we've been gite-ing for 25 yrs!) and we will be back! Sarah, Malcolm, Dom & Jo Carr + Fred the black lab, August 2013
Our second visit to Grand Villette has been fantastic, the gite, the pool and the fantastic location makes for a fabulous, relaxing break. Rosemary & Pickle are great hosts and thank you Rosemary for giving Ellen such a fabulous 16th birthday, karaoke in the barn is a must experience. Thanks again, hope to see you again soon. The Reith family, July 2013
