Very Good

“A home away from home”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2018

A lovely cottage, very complete and then some! Plenty of garden furniture, games and small but perfect pool. Overlooking fields -we regularly spotted birds of pray and foxes....and cows :-). Heather and Gary are extremely hospitable, no question is too much. We have enjoyed the regular visits from Geo and Flo the cats. You will need a car. If you want to avoid mass tourism locations this is your holiday. The Super U in Fresnay or Sille are best for your groceries. Activities: hiking in the forests nearby or river walks. Canoeing, horseriding, wallclimbing, go-Ape, bungyjumping. The swimming lake in Sille Forest. Le Mans (40 min) and Le Fleche zoo (1hr15min drive) highly remmonended. We also enjoyed the stargazing and hearing the owls hoot at night. All in all a holiday to unwind and enjoy the French outdoor.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review and information for other guests. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday. You were the perfect guests.

“Fantastic gite”

Reviewed 19 May 2017

Back for another visit! Heather and Garry do such a good job making visitors welcome and the gite and it's lovely garden are most appealing. They offer everything for a 'home from home' stay with a very generous amount of equipment and facilities. Perfect for relaxing or as a base for taking in the local villages and towns. A fantastic gite. Well done Heather and Garry. Hope to be back again.

Owner's reply: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your review.

“Wonderful, peaceful haven”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2016

Beautiful, clean, well equipped gite. Wonderful welcome with essential items and a bottle of wine. The gite was set in the most beautiful countryside, easy access to many places of interest. An amazing place to unwind an relax. Thank you Gary and Heather.

Owner's reply: Thank you Katherine, we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday.

“Beautiful, well equipped Gite in peaceful location.”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2014

We traveled with our two young children ( 1 & 3) looking for a relaxing break while remaining entertaining for the kids. This holiday ticked both boxes. The Gite is beautifully restored and is well equipped for adults and children alike. It's located in a peaceful, rural area providing the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area (with which there's plenty to explore). The owners Gary and Heather were extremely helpful and although we didn't need to see them at any point in the week i'm certain that they'd have done everything in their capacity to help us with anything we required. I'd definitely recommend the Gite and will be doing so. We are already thinking of when we can next re-visit. Thanks again and look forward to returning soon.

“beautiful and relaxing, so peaceful.”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2014

We don't normally stay in gites on the owners property but we are so glad we did this year. Heather and Garry made us feel so welcome and were there if we needed them but without being intrusive. The animals were so entertaining. We had everything that we could have wished for and will certainly be returning with family next time. So thank you for a fantastic holiday Heather and Garry.

“Perfectly renovated farm building out in the peace of the countryside”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2014

As above a well finished gite right out in the country. Lovely hosts for whom nothing seemed to be a hassle. Would highly recommend and think that it would suit most groups / age ranges.

“Fabulous place”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2014

The site was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, a real home from home. Equipped with everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect for peace and tranquility. The owners are onhand if there are any issues or questions. I would highly recommend.

“Home from home, relax”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2013

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.”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2013

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.
