Rural short breaks (12284)

Short on time? Book a mini break in the country! Take your pick from these short breaks at cottages, farmhouses and villas in the countryside. Perfect for long weekends away, short rural breaks let you escape to the great outdoors and recharge your batteries.



Marvel at the breath-taking beauty of the UK’s finest rural areas on your short rural break. Discover the tranquillity of the Lake District, go mountain biking in the Brecon Beacons or climb Snowdon, Wales’s highest peak.



If you have a long weekend to spare, hop over the water to an Irish country cottage or try Scotland for jaw-dropping panoramic views of the mountains and Highlands. Alternatively, you could follow the Spanish sunshine and hide away in a stylish Galician converted barn, or head to sun-baked Cyprus and choose a poolside apartment in Paphos.

The oven is now rectified, thanks for the report. Satellite TV is something that we may add in the future, but right now DVD media is the only option and this is reflected in the pricing.

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.
