"An excellent gite with a friendly owner!"

Janet welcomed us on our arrival and the gite was well equipped and we were grateful for the welcoming pack. The Gite was clean, comfortable and well presented. The grounds were perfect for our two children. Janet was on hand if we needed anything and was able to advise us about the locality whilst we were there. We had a great week and would definately visit Janet and her lovely home again. Thanks.

"Space, plenty to do, friendly welcome, good for children."

The Gite is very comfortable with everything you need. Its a great base to explore the many attractions in the area. We loved the roads as they were so straight and quiet. There was plenty of space with grass outside so the children could play badminton, etc There was a lake with a beach (sand) nearby - with several restaurants there. We visited Papea park (theme park), Margots Cave and Canyon, the Tank museum and spent a day on the beach by the lake. Getting around is easy, a supermarket is 5 mins down the road in the car. All in all we had a great time.

Very enjoyable stay in a nicely presented gite in the heart of the Loire country side. Satellite TV and broadband (WiFi) was a bonus.
