Large Family Semi-Rural Gite with Indoor Heated Swimming Pool, Jacuzzi and Sauna

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Five bedroom Semi-Rural Country Gite with Private Indoor Swimming Pool, Jacuzzi & Sauna just one hour from the Atlantic Coast and the Loire Valley.

Spacious family gite with large private indoor heated Swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Sauna. Situated within walking distance of Erbray village, the gite is not isolated and only 8km from the historic market town of Châteaubriant. Originally an old milking parlour, the property has been lovingly converted to accommodate up to ten guests in comfort. The indoor heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and optional sauna are for your private use and not shared with either the owners or any other guests for the duration of your stay.

The pool-room is reached via a 20 metre stroll through the landscaped garden which features an (unfenced) Koi carp pond, separate games area, illuminated dining pagoda with BBQ and a timber decked sun-bathing terrace.

This Gite will appeal to demanding guests seeking more than just ordinary holiday accommodation and is the perfect French semi-rural retreat for both families & friends looking to get far from the maddening crowd!
