Lovely gite in tranquil surroundings and in very nice location. The gardens to this property are lovely and its quite obvious a lot of care has gone into planning and maintaining this gite. Our little one (2 years old) loved to run round the garden and he was free to roam as he pleased, he had a whale of a time! Unfortunatley the weather wasnt so good to enjoy the outdoor BBQ (and who can do anything about the weather!) but this didn't matter. Luckiiy we had a couple of days where we could sit outside and enjoy the patio area with vino, a crusty french baguette and lovely french cheeses! It was nice to sit inside though and admire the view of the surrounding countryside, Not a noise to be heard other than a few passing tractors and the odd moo of the cows in the fields.
There was a stair gate provided, a high chair and travel cot and care had even been taken with a cute little quilt provided in the cot! A nice touch. The same for a welcome pack been provided, this isn't something which the owners have to do it is something they choose to do and that's the difference. As for Carole and Stuart they were very friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive.
We visited lots of places when we were here and frequently popped to Mayenne as was only 20 mins away. Some of the other places we went to were St Fraimbault, Mayenne, Laval, Bagnoles, Mont St Michel, St Suzanne, Jubliains. And on the way home (we got the channel tunnel) we devirted via Paris, it would have been rude not too pop to Paris for the weekend!
We would definitely go back here, thanks Carole and Stuart for a fab hol!
