Rural retreats (38983)

Escape to the country – book a beautiful rural retreat! Choose from cosy country cottages, exquisitely converted farmhouses and Mediterranean-style fincas bursting with character.



Rural retreats provide the perfect setting for total relaxation. See our holiday cottages in Cornwall, the Cotswolds and the Lake District, or find a cottage with a mesmerising backdrop in Snowdonia or the Scottish Highlands. Further afield, explore the tranquillity and native wildlife in France, Italy or Spain from your own gite or trullo.



Some of our rural retreats come complete with private pools, BBQs, Jacuzzis and real log fires. They make perfect bases for hiking, cycling, fishing, or simply enjoying the peace and fresh air of the great outdoors.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Les Fleurs and thank you for your comments regarding our meals and wines. Not sure that we understand your thoughts on Doue la Fontaine etc when you walk out of our gates there are lots of vintners offering wine tastings. Two are within 200 yards. Perhaps you didn’t investigate Doue la Fontaine and the sites close by enough as guests who return year on year come back because we are at the centre of so much. Apart from the world famous Zoo, Doue la Fontaine is the rose garden of France and has Les chemins de la Rose is a 4 hectares landscaped floral park planted with 1300 varieties of botanical, old and modern roses; there are numerous cafes and restaurants also the troglodytique town of Rochemenier, just a few minutes from Doue La Fontaine, The Museum of Commerce in Doue la Fontaine, takes you back to the 19th century shopping experience, Mushroom museums where you can taste the different varieties; Caves Lumiere a troglodytiques setting with sculptures are all within 15 minutes of our property. Travelling a little further afield. But staying within 30 minutes to 1 hour’s drive we have: Puy du Fou, Monteuil Bellay, Saumur, Breze, Montsereau and Brissac Chateaux not forgetting the chateaux of Valendry, Asay du Riddeau and others. Plus the Beautiful villages with beautiful churches of Canault, Chenutte and Treves are just 20 minutes. Doue la Fontaine has many bars, restaurants, 5 supermarkets, sports Shops, fishing shops, an excellent market on Monday’s plus tennis courts An indoor swimming pool, skate Boarding Park to name but a few. There is a file in the gite giving a comprehensive overview of everything in the area, in future we will point this file out to guests incase they miss it. We do hope to welcome you all back one day and we can talk over all the nearby sites you missed.
