“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.

“Well-Equipped Gite in Stunning Location”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

We were so well looked after by Heather and Garry that we felt immediately at home at Le Jarrier. The gite was well-equipped and catered for entertaining all age groups, eg pool, outdoor games, Playstation, DS + games, board games, together with lots of tourist information on places of interest.

“Perfect gite for the family”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

This was the most well equipped Gite that we have stayed in. We wanted for nothing. Peace and tranquillity. Our time was over to soon so will have to visit again. Ideal base for exploring. It was nice to know the english owners are near by so any help or advise if needed was there. Large garden for the children, the pool was ideal for a dip. A very clean & comfortable home.

“A*** gite Would highly recommend”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2012

The gite was one of the most lovely places we have stayed. Superb interior and surroundings Very peaceful and stunning views. Owners Heather and Garry are most welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Would certainly recommend to anyone wanting a GETAWAY LOCATION. Would highly recommend. One suggestion try not to travel from Paris Charles de Gaulle as it is quite exhausting and hair raising.

“Extremely impressed! Absolutely excellent gite with all mod cons - and lovely owners”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2012

The gite itself was by far the best in which we have ever stayed. The owners had thought of providing all modern conveniences, everything that we could have needed - and much more. The welcome pack on arrival including fresh farm eggs, bread, milk and wine was a lovely touch. The gite was very clean and very well furnished to a high degree with it's own garden and in a lovely rural location but also within easy drive of many interesting places including the famous Le Mans. I would gladly recommend this as a holiday stay.
