We stayed in the cottage, a beautiful place. The gardens are lovely as is the main house and cottage. We had our own private small terrace to sit out or we could sit on the terrace outside the main house. Gaetan and family are very pleasant and helpful without being intrusive. We could walk all around the grounds which was good as we had our dog, Max with us. The Cottage was nice and had all the things we needed, another armchair in the living room would have been useful. Easy access to good beaches near Bretignolles sur mer, some of which allow dogs on in the summer. Thanks Gaetan for a lovely holiday.
