Customer Reviews 

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
We've had a lovely week & would thoroughly recommend it. Thank you to Rosemary for all her helpful advice & suggestions on what to do! We went to the markets in Champfleur, Alençon & Beaumont & to Eurodisney for a day (well worth it) & Le Musée des 24 heures du Mans - all fantastic! We played lots of ping pong & in the pool & I liked the games room the best because of all of the books & games (Daniel - 11yrs) Catherine, Kevin, Daniel & Jack, July 2012
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 are now stress-free! With our 3 children (7, 12 & 13) we found that there was never a dull moment. Rosemary & Helen welcomed us & encouraged the children to explore all the facilities. The dog was even welcomed & encouraged to roam free. The gite was well equipped & comfortable with a luxury of space and we were in & out of the pool like yoyos during the heat of the 1st week. Rosemary was on hand to help us with any language barriers. We will no doubt be back! Lor & Dave Clifford, August 2012
What a fab week we've had. Our 1st trip abroad with the children but we could not have chosen a better place to go. Rosemary made us feel very welcome & has been a great source on recommending where to go! The gite is lovely & spacious & well equipped and the beds so comfy - lovely! The children have thoroughly enjoyed the on site facilities, games room & we have all enjoyed the pool. Weather has been perfect & we would definitely recommend this gite! Our only complaint would be that we should have booked two weeks instead of one. Many thanks to Rosemary for providing a great set up for all the family! Sharon, Paul, Milo, Jordan & Toby, August 2012
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, July/August 2013
Despite the weather being cold & wet we have had a fantastic stay mainly due to the great array of entertainment available; namely the table tennis, darts, pool table, vast selection of videos & books & English TV channels. This also includes the pool & the huge selection of bikes including tag alongs. The gite is very well equipped with all necessities and more, the beds & sofas are comfortable & the large kitchen is great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would recommend the 24 hr museum & aquaparc at Le Mans. Although is there any need to go anywhere? Thanks Rosemary for being a helpful but unobtrusive host! Nick, Nierji, Thomas & Lali, July/August 2012
A fantastic fortnight enjoyed by all & the gite is extremely comfortable & so well equipped. We have had such a relaxing holiday making use of the pool & barn & the kids have loved the company of Pickle. Thoroughly recommend La Plage at Sillé, Le Mans and if you want to venture further afield the Château at Cheverny for Tintin enthusisasts & Chenonceau - both gorgeous. A lovely area & lots to do and see & Rosemary is a fantastic host! Thanks Rosemary for a memorable holiday! Caroline, Kevin, Ellen, Finlay, Lewie & Ailsa, July/August 2012
We have had a fabulous week, lots of sunshine and visits to the pool. Thank you Rosemary and Pickle for sharing your home with us. We enjoyed our visit to Paris from Le Mans on the TGV. The children particularly loved using the bikes and playing table tennis and pool. We enjoyed relaxing with a good book and a bottle of the local vin and lots of pain et fromage'. The house is beautiful and catered for all our needs. Thank you! The James family, August/September 2011
