“Great house and facilities for children and we couldn't have felt more welcome”
We stayed for a week at the beginning of September. From the minute we arrived we felt very welcome. Keith and Julie had left us homemade jam, eggs from their chickens and a large bowl of homegrown tomatoes. The gite is well furnished and very comfortable with everything you could want. The kitchen was extremely bright and spacious which I particularly liked. We travelled with our 2 year old son and there was a wide variety of toys waiting for him including a ride on tractor and tricycle parked outside! We enjoyed the terrace most evenings as the weather was fantastic, and made use of the adult games provided by playing scrabble!!!! The garden area was an extra bonus, with table tennis, a trampoline, tent and various ball games. The chickens were great to feed and provided us with plenty of eggs which we collected ourselves. We didn't use the pool much but another great feature. We had a very pleasant evening enjoying Julie's table d'ote menu. Lovely food and wine all for 15 euros each! By day three Keith had made our son a fantastic wooden lorry with crayons in the top which he absolutely adores. It is clear that Keith and Julie both love children and nothing was too much trouble and we didn't feel like we were imposing which is sometimes the case when a gite is attached to the owners own house. A great base to explore the surrounding area and wonderful town of montreuil bellay (eat at the hostellerie Saint jean, it's fab). All in all a great holiday in a great gite which I would highly recommend.
We had lovely holiday, again. It was the 3rd time we were here. The hospitality is great. Lovely surroundings, a lot to do. The garden with the chickens, toys and the pool made it very suitable for children.
“Excellent for families wanting to explore Loire area”
Nice double room and room with single and kingsize bed. Pool was very warm. Super walled garden with plenty of toys for children of all age. Loads of bikes free to use. Area is quiet for cycling in country lanes and about twenty minute cycle to supermarket or bakery. Hosts are very friendly and live next door. Homegrown garden produce and eggs are free to use. Would definitely recommend!
