The Loire Valley region

Le Jarrier Gite is situated about a mile and a half from the village of St Georges le Gaultier and provides an excellent base for many types of enjoyable day trips.

There are the many Vineyards and Chateaux of the Loire Valley, the ever popular Zoo at Le Fleche, the famous Le Mans Race Circuit - home of the 24 hour endurance race as well as many more places of interest within easy reach.

The Sarthe area can provide you with sight seeing at an easy pace, or action packed adventure - it is all available.

Our location is less than 20 miles south from the Normandy region, enabling a day trip to the historical Normandy Landing Beaches (further north), and guests can visit Alencon with a good range of shops & twice weekly market. Within 1 hours drive are Chateau Sassy and Carrouges Chateau, both offering guided tours.

Only a couple of miles west of Le Jarrier is the Mayenne region and the popular Evron, Mayenne and Saint Suzanne to name only a few......

The local roads are excellent and we are also about 20 mins. from Junction 20 of the A28 autoroute.

Generally speaking, the weather is warmer than that of the UK.

"Home from home, relax"

Everything needed is there, one of the most fully equipped gite we have stayed in.
Even on wet days there are DVDs, PSP games, CDs and board games to play.
Although the owners are on site you would never know it. The privacy is great.
The views from the gite are beautiful, and sun sets stunning.
Sheep and goat present for feeding waste bits too,and cats to play with.
So relaxing, home from home

"All we wanted & more."

A perfect setting for a first class gite, supported by the most friendly & helpful of hosts in Garry & Heather. A compact gite with all the facilities we were looking for. Set in beautiful countryside, this is the perfect base to explore the region or simply relax in the garden and dip in the pool. The whole experience was very good, with nothing to dislike.

"Well-Equipped Gite in Stunning Location"

We were so well looked after by Heather and Garry that we felt immediately at home at Le Jarrier. The gite was well-equipped and catered for entertaining all age groups, eg pool, outdoor games, Playstation, DS + games, board games, together with lots of tourist information on places of interest.

"Perfect gite for the family"

This was the most well equipped Gite that we have stayed in.
We wanted for nothing. Peace and tranquillity. Our time was over to soon so will have to visit again. Ideal base for exploring. It was nice to know the english owners are near by so any help or advise if needed was there.
Large garden for the children, the pool was ideal for a dip.
A very clean & comfortable home.

"A*** gite Would highly recommend"

The gite was one of the most lovely places we have stayed. Superb interior and surroundings Very peaceful and stunning views. Owners Heather and Garry are most welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Would certainly recommend to anyone wanting a GETAWAY LOCATION. Would highly recommend. One suggestion try not to travel from Paris Charles de Gaulle as it is quite exhausting and hair raising.

"Extremely impressed! Absolutely excellent gite with all mod cons - and lovely owners"

The gite itself was by far the best in which we have ever stayed. The owners had thought of providing all modern conveniences, everything that we could have needed - and much more. The welcome pack on arrival including fresh farm eggs, bread, milk and wine was a lovely touch. The gite was very clean and very well furnished to a high degree with it's own garden and in a lovely rural location but also within easy drive of many interesting places including the famous Le Mans. I would gladly recommend this as a holiday stay.

"A lovely home away from home"

We very much enjoyed our holiday and definitely consider this a place to come back to. The owners have been very welcoming and helpful, the house and immediate surroundings are lovely. Great views. The rural area offered us lots of wind-down time, great forestry and very sweet small villages. The house itself offered all than if not more amenities to provide for a worry free holiday. We all loved the farmyard animals.

"Extremely satisfied"

Lovely place, ideal for a getaway but not too far from the amenities, all the little things like dishwasher tablets etc included so aside from food you won't need anything. Owners are there when you need them but let you get on with it and very friendly, lovely people.
Sunsets, animals and local area are beautiful.
