We are really pleased to see from your review how much you enjoyed yourselves here. It was a real pleasure to meet you both, as well as, of course, your fine, well-behaved dogs. It is always a pleasure to have such a positive response from dog-owners. The separate fenced and enclosed gardens with their automatic gates make having dogs here a practical proposition and we are pleased to see you take good advantage of the huge range of wonderful walks that surround the property. Our Yorkie – Caillou – still spends much of his day playing with the toy you kindly gave him!!
We are grateful you appreciated the high standard we have aimed for in the gîtes. Our own experience in years past of staying in substandard accommodation furnished with musty caste-offs convinced us that a different mentality was required – one which placed the emphasis on providing the best possible experience for guests – hence also the large heated pool.
We are very fortunate to have gîtes in an area that provides so much in the way of attractions. It is good to know how much you enjoyed Saumur with its quirky architecture and we hope to have the pleasure of you visiting us again in the future.
