Holiday cottages (2797)

Get away from it all and enjoy the luscious scenery of a secluded countryside setting by booking one of these fabulous cosy holiday cottages. Choose from country cottages in England, tranquil gites in France and cottages in Wales with log fires and breathtaking views.


You may prefer to visit the splendid country of Ireland and stay in a traditional Irish cottage - enjoying long leisurely walks before soaking up the Celtic atmosphere in great local pubs. Alternatively, choose a Scottish lodge by a loch or in the mountains and relax as you marvel at the beauty of the great outdoors.


For the more adventurous, look further afield and enjoy the serenity of a country cottage in a hidden overseas location. Pick somewhere in a peaceful forest or mountain setting and enjoy long walks or energetic bike rides.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Les Fleurs and thank you for your comments regarding our meals and wines. Not sure that we understand your thoughts on Doue la Fontaine etc when you walk out of our gates there are lots of vintners offering wine tastings. Two are within 200 yards. Perhaps you didn’t investigate Doue la Fontaine and the sites close by enough as guests who return year on year come back because we are at the centre of so much. Apart from the world famous Zoo, Doue la Fontaine is the rose garden of France and has Les chemins de la Rose is a 4 hectares landscaped floral park planted with 1300 varieties of botanical, old and modern roses; there are numerous cafes and restaurants also the troglodytique town of Rochemenier, just a few minutes from Doue La Fontaine, The Museum of Commerce in Doue la Fontaine, takes you back to the 19th century shopping experience, Mushroom museums where you can taste the different varieties; Caves Lumiere a troglodytiques setting with sculptures are all within 15 minutes of our property. Travelling a little further afield. But staying within 30 minutes to 1 hour’s drive we have: Puy du Fou, Monteuil Bellay, Saumur, Breze, Montsereau and Brissac Chateaux not forgetting the chateaux of Valendry, Asay du Riddeau and others. Plus the Beautiful villages with beautiful churches of Canault, Chenutte and Treves are just 20 minutes. Doue la Fontaine has many bars, restaurants, 5 supermarkets, sports Shops, fishing shops, an excellent market on Monday’s plus tennis courts An indoor swimming pool, skate Boarding Park to name but a few.

Hello Dale. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry to hear that you found the cottage accommodation “not to bad” as we truly try and offer a quality rental. Upon your arrival and on the day of your departure you had told me how lovely the accommodation had been and had commented on its lovely furnishings and said how comfortable you had been during your stay. With regards to the iron, ironing board, and teapot I brought these over to you as soon as you requested not long after your arrival. (The hairdryer was under the bathroom sink cupboard.) You were quite right the iron and ironing board should have already been in the cottage. We do an annual stock check and the new iron and ironing board had not been added in the cottage. The bin was a total oversight whilst cleaning from the guests that had left that day. I apologised profusely at the time and changed the bin as soon as you told me, again I am extremely sorry about this oversight. The wifi and internet not working over the weekend was totally out of our control, we were waiting for France Telecom to fix the line, it was up and working Tuesday when you returned, unfortunately these are the joys of living in the French countryside. With regards to your self catering walking holiday I was unaware you were unhappy until the day before you left when you told me. It was such a shame that you had decided not to join in with the main walking group during your second week. Every day your vehicle had left each time we passed and I had concluded you had wished to walk alone, which I quite understood. Maybe you would have had a much more enjoyable experience if you had walked with the rest of us. We obviously want all our guests to have a great holiday here at Lavaud. I only wish you had let me know straight away that you were feeling disappointed as we would of course have done everything we could to rectify this.

Wow, what a wonderful review ! Thank you so much for coming to stay with us. It was such a pleasure to meet you and spend time with you both. We were so pleased that you managed to do and see so much and I´m sure the trip to Eucalyptus beach will stay with you for a long time ! It was lovely to see that you made yourselves so much at home in the Casita and I´m sure this reflected how relaxing your week was. Best wishes, Simon and Amanda

Great to have met you both and very pleased that you had such a successful trip. Point taken about the small fridge; will consider a larger one for next summer. Would be lovely to see you again, perhaps at a different time of year when different varieties of birds are visiting? Best wishes, Simon and Amanda
