Pretty 17th Century house, nestled within the walls of it's own large shared garden with The Hidden Gem, just feet away from the beautiful Chateau of Montreuil-Bellay, in the the centre of the historic part of the small town..excellent restaurants (reasonably priced), a lovely patisserie, old-fashioned cafe, large supermarket, all within easy walking. Large outdoor table and chairs in it's own private terrace and lovely garden to relax, with fresh herbs for your cuisine! The table -tennis table is shared with The Hidden Gem, which you may also book should you prefer sole use of everything, (see paragraph below). Downstairs has maintained the characterful cobbledy stone walls, beams and original tiled floors, whilst the three bedrooms upstairs are decorated and carpeted to comfort. There is central heating and hot water and also a wood-burner downstairs which heats the dining-room/sitting room area beautifully. There is wood outside in the wood lean-to and also in the baskets by the fire. There is wifi, Tv with english and french channels and DVD.Linked to this house is another gite 'The Hidden Gem' (300391) at an additional cost (though you can hire them both and you would have through- access). It has a more modern layout, two double bedrooms, cot, a bathroom with bath and hand-shower (in the Secret Gem it is a shower, no bath, but a good powerful modern one), it's own equipped kitchen with table and benches,,it's own private terrace for outside dining with table and chairs, sofabed downstairs where there is a modern wood-burner which heats the whole place beautifully through the night too on cold nights, and a large cave. (see 'The Hidden Gem', Montreuil-Bellay 300391). The garden is a shared garden for The Secret and Hidden Gems, though each have the privacy of separate outside dining areas at opposite ends of the garden. It is however ideal as a complete rental for a large family, 2 families, or several friends. It is a strictly NON-SMOKING property, though outside is of course fine!

"The Secret Gem"

My family and I stayed at the Secret Jem and the Hidden Jem in June and we had the most magical week. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were blown away by the beauty and tranquility of the place. We found the accommodation spacious and comfortable but teeming with character and history and it was great to be in Mountrail-Bellaiy and yet have such privacy. The town itself is great. It's a friendly but quiet old medieval town with the most amazing chateaux with a lovely vineyard. We just had to step out of the back door and round the corner there was this castle beaming down on us! It's like something from a fairytale! Whats more, there's a patisserie just round the corner. On our final night we dined in the adjoining restaurant. All the staff were in medieval costume to serve us an amazing meal. There's something for everyone in the town, from romantic moonlight wanders to great French cuisine. I thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a good holiday to go for this! My family and I will definitely make a regular habit of this. Just had to share the experience we had because more people should have it.
