"fabulous gite, great for family holiday,"

As a family of 2 young children, plus grandparents, there was lots to do, to keep everyone happy; swimming, badminton, football, plus lots to explore in the area. We were extremely lucky with the weather so didn't make use of the games room. The owners were really helpful with advice on where to visit and suggestions for restaurants to try. We had a wonderful holiday.

"A home from home."

This was our second visit to L'Echerbaudiere. As before, we received a wonderful welcome from the owners. The gite was immaculate and weather was nice which enabled us to spend some time in the beautiful garden and the pool. It is a peaceful, rural location but close enough to Vitre and Fougeres for day visits. The buildings and gardens are really well maintained and the owners are very accomodating. We stayed with our one year old daughter and the gite was fine for a toddler. The owner put up a stairgate for us and there was a new cot and highchair, which was great. There is also a well equipped games room which is really good if the weather isn't so good. I'm sure we will go back.
