About the property

Forest and lake setting sleeping 6 - ideal for families with horses and animals

Le Petit Maison du Carp is located in the grounds of Chateau de la Cour and has it's own garden. It sleeps 6 people having two double bedrooms and a twin. The kids will love exploring the forest either on foot or using our mountain bikes for hire and the lake can also be used for fishing or rowing. There are also mini horses and farm yard animals that can be fed and groomed under supervision. Picnics can be arranged in the forest…and if you want to get away and leaves the kids for a few hours our manager is available to child mind.

Lovely location, friendly welcome

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week here in Chatelain - enjoying the quiet location, the lake and the forest walks, as well as the footpaths around the local area. Teenage kids thoroughly enjoyed heading off around the grounds on their own to visit the various animals and explore.

Comfortable, well equipped cottage with a 10 minute drive to the nearest town with some great places to eat, or 30-40 minutes to the larger city of Angers with more shopping and it's castle.

Couldn't have asked for a friendlier welcome and assistance throughout the stay for anything we needed or had questions about.

Pretty property - great for animal lovers .

  • 3 of 5

The gite is newly set up - very spacious inside -nice to find milk - wine and Brie in the fridge ! We had an issue with the tv so we were given the boat to use on the lake.It's was great to have Lesley on hand to ask questions about the area, markets and so on . Fishing was great although our son didn't catch anything . Lots of animals to see and meet- it might not be for everybody as the larger dogs can jump over the fence so see our small children which we had to watch out for. The grounds are pretty and a good stop over which suited us .

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying here over Easter. Lesley and Fiona did everything they possibly could to make our stay fun and comfortable. We were three adults a baby and a toddler and the cottage was ideal for that. We look forward to staying again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just got home form a lovely family stay here. It was so clean and comfortable , had everything we needed , the evenings we didn't go out was not a problem as the cottage as sky tv so kids were happy. From our very own garden and drive way you can see the the lake and what the kids called it "the castle" and also the horses , we felt a real sense of being in the countryside yet we want to far from amenities , we visited some lovely restaurants , the local Zoo and a near by castle ! We will definitely be returning soon as we can. Great family stay !

Very comfortable accomodation in a peaceful location. Great for a relaxing holiday with good access to larger towns not too far away. Lots to do in the wider area around Anjou.

Delightful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Overall, really good, you're allowed the run of the whole 52 acres which includes the woods, lake, fields, lawn, sun terrace - foraging for fruit and vegetables and eggs! the owners weren't there on our stay but 'Lesley' was - she runs the place tremendously and immaculately and is extremely welcoming. The cottage is on the edge of the estate with its own private entrance in a pretty village. Ideally you'll be in a car as there are lots of towns a few miles away including Angers and Le Mans. Book now!
