“A wonderful holiday in a wonderful place.” Our holiday in Le Montinazeau was a wonderful experience for my whole family. My wife and I loved the peace and quiet, my 3 year old daughter loved the space to be free (we live in a second floor apartment).
The gite itself was immaculate and a perfect size for our family. The style of the property fits exactly with what I had imagined of the region, it really is a pretty place. The garden and surrounding grounds are large and wonderfully kept.
We were looking for a holiday to get away from our normal routine, and this was perfect. Our 3 year old could be allowed to run without worry, I think we counted at most 3 cars per day passing along the road near the property.
We were made to feel very welcome by the owners no one more so than our daughter with whom they showed immense patience, 3 year olds tend to lack a sense of boundary, ours is no different.
As I said, we were looking for a quiet relaxing getaway as such we were really happy just to chill in the garden and enjoy the wonderful weather, but we did venture to the local lake for a swim one afternoon, and can thoroughly recommend that other guests do the same. There is a small town nearby with a supermarket and bakery, which covered all of our food and drink requirements.
The owners provided a folder filled with useful tips with things to do around the area, however a WiFi connection is available in the gite should you wish to google some more.
To get there We drove for a few hours from our home in Switzerland, with a 3 year old in the car as probably should have been expected, we arrived later than planned. Thankfully when we arrived we found that tea and coffee making essentials were already in the gite, including fresh milk, no last minute shopping trips required, you could feel the stress levels falling away the second we opened the door to the gite.
All in all Le Montinazeau was a wonderful choice for our holiday, it was everything we hoped it would be and more. We literally had to bribe our 3 year old into the car to leave which says it all really.
“Rural France at its best” We visited Andrew & Debbie last year and were amazed at how beautiful and peaceful the are is. The gite was very well equipped and comfortable with lovely views across the countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring and finding hidden gems such as the church at Le Menoux, the riverside walks at Fresslines and the medieval tower at La Souterraine thanks to Andrew & Debbie's knowledge and love of the area. A great place to relax and enjoy rural France.
