“Perfect family retreat-absolutely stunning!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here for one night on our way to La Rochelle. We were greeted by the new owners Lise, her husband (think his name was Seville) and their son Luca. We were given such a warm welcome;I've never experienced anything quite like it. We were late arriving and couldn't find any shops open nearby and the owners couldn't do enough for us. They brought us barbecue food, filled the table with an array of delicious food and lit the BBQ for us to cook our own meat (in our own time). We loved everything about the place and were shown around the accommodation and grounds whilst our sons played happily. The new owners have got lots of ideas to improve the facilities offered to families with young children. Happy children= Happy parents seemed to be the general consensus! Can't wait to go back next year for a longer stay....;0) highly recommended, I would go as far as to say This place is a must if you are considering staying in the Le Mans area with young children.

“Absolutely fantastic stay, amazing accomodation and owners first class!”
Reviewed 15 October 2012 for a stay in July 2012

From inital contact with regards availability and booking the friendly and flexible attitude of the owners Alice and Clive was evident. Due to summer holidays we wanted to take advantage of off peak days and time and this was no problem. We could arrive any day and stay as little or as long as we wanted. Such a welcome surprise not being tied to 'Change over days'. Even when I'd messed up my tunnel bookings and needed to change our stay, this was handled with no fuss and hassle.
On arrival we couldn't have been more impressed, we stayed in 'The Barn' and the accomodation was amazing. In our party were two adults, 2 children (aged 9 and 11) and our puppy. All apects of the accomodation were 1st class. A fantastic kitchen (perfect for family self catering), dining area which looked out over the never ending grounds, two bedrooms downstairs which the boys loved and another room upstairs. Add in the homely, relaxing living area upstairs and you have the perfect retreat.
The accomodation is surrounded by acres of land with great views, perfect for our two young boys to roam around and lovely to sit out on the terrace and watch the world go by.
We have stayed in a number of gite's/ holiday cottages in France over the last 5 years and this is head and shoulders above the rest, nowhere has come close to matching this standard of holiday accomodation, unbelievable value.
What made this holiday extra special was the personal touches by the owners, always on hand should you need anything but also allowing you to enjoy your holiday as though you were the only people there.
Alice and Clive were fantastic hosts, extremely knowledgeable about the local area and we can't wait to go again!
