Further details indoors

Gite Tournesol has just been completed to a very high standard, decorated tastefully to ensure a restful stay.

This renovated stone-built holiday home is full of character with its wooden-beamed ceilings. It is centrally heated with cooker and microwave in the kitchen. Set in spacious grounds where guests can feel free to pick the fruit from the orchard and surrounding trees.

This is an excellent base to discover the region, with many places of interest nearby.

Please note: The photos of the kitchen and dining room are not up-to-date as they are in the process of being refurbished. New photos will be added in the spring, showing the washing machine and fridge-freezer.

Further details outdoors

Eating outside is a must in France with a BBQ and seating area to enjoy. A petanque/boules area is available for you to learn how to play!

Further details

Welcome pack provided on arrival (tea, coffee, milk, sugar and croissants).

The surrounding land is shared with the owners of the house. However, they have a garden at the rear for their sole use, leaving mostly uninterrupted use of the remaining grounds for the gite guests.

English-speaking representative on hand to answer any questions.

A list of shop opening hours and bank holidays will be sent once your booking is confirmed as French shops do not open on Sundays or bank holidays. This should help you bring adequate catering supplies with you! (Although, if required, some supplies can be ready for your arrival. Please contact us beforehand to arrange).

Vacation of gite on day of departure is required before 10am. This is to enable completion of cleaning prior to the next visitors' arrival at 4pm onwards.

The Pays de la Loire region

Sillé-le-Guillaume is a village and commune in the Sarthe departement of France, in the region Pays-de-la-Loire. Gite Renée borders one of Normandies National Parcs. Being just South of Normandy this is excellent Calvados country.

Le Mans is only 20 minutes away and with the race track and the old city you will have plenty to see and do.

Le Mans

Sillé-le-Guillaume's château is in the neighbouring town and well worth a visit.

All the family will enjoy the activities provided at Sillé Plage (beach) about 10 minutes drive away. This is a 100-acre lake which includes a man-made beach, swimming, boating, horse riding, fishing and much much more.

June is the time for the whole of France to celebrate music. Around the 3rd weekend every village, town and city will put on live music, free for everyone to enjoy.

"An excellent gite with a friendly owner!"

Janet welcomed us on our arrival and the gite was well equipped and we were grateful for the welcoming pack. The Gite was clean, comfortable and well presented. The grounds were perfect for our two children. Janet was on hand if we needed anything and was able to advise us about the locality whilst we were there. We had a great week and would definately visit Janet and her lovely home again. Thanks.

"Space, plenty to do, friendly welcome, good for children."

The Gite is very comfortable with everything you need. Its a great base to explore the many attractions in the area. We loved the roads as they were so straight and quiet. There was plenty of space with grass outside so the children could play badminton, etc There was a lake with a beach (sand) nearby - with several restaurants there. We visited Papea park (theme park), Margots Cave and Canyon, the Tank museum and spent a day on the beach by the lake. Getting around is easy, a supermarket is 5 mins down the road in the car. All in all we had a great time.

Very enjoyable stay in a nicely presented gite in the heart of the Loire country side. Satellite TV and broadband (WiFi) was a bonus.
