Well we've been back 2 weeks now and I can sum this holiday up in one word WOW we loved it 2 weeks of fantastic weather and peace and tranquillity the location was great just a little walk to the local village where there was a little supermarket and a pharmacy and a patisserie or you could take a 20 minute drive to the larger supermarket we stayed in the farmhouse as there was 6 of us 2 couples and 2 children and it was very comfortable and plenty of space . The children especially enjoyed the pool in the garden and the very warm welcome we received of glen and Yvonne and the girls we were made to feel like friends my 6 year old son made 2 friends for life with the 2 dogs buttons and rascal !! We chose this holiday mainly because we wanted to do some fishing and fish we did over 150 fish in 2 weeks and we didn't fish everyday as it was nice to relax and have a bbq in the garden we also enjoyed going riding it was fab my 11 year old daughter loved going into the stables and pottering about and helping out she learned so much from Yvonne . If you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday I would recommend staying here it really is a beautiful amazing place so much so that we have already booked for next year and we can't wait to see you guys then

Lovely house in a really quite area, SUPBERB !

  • 5 of 5

What a nice house in a lovely quite setting but with all amenities nearby. House has everything that you would require for a great stay. Glen & Yvonne were great host there when you needed them. The fishing lake was good we never fished much but each time we did we caught. We went and played golf in Nantes which is only a 40 min drive, the course was superb and we were made to feel really welcome book in advance via there web site Yvonne can give all info required for the courses,the food was really nice and good value.( I would highly recommend the golf 35 euros a round ) Julie tried the riding with Yvonne and really enjoyed it out for ages but only 20 euros. This is a great place to stay and would suit a family or a couple of couples, as lots around for kids to do and adults alike. We would highly recommend.

Great gem in rural setting

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have stayed in France and what an impression the Owners have made. Very warm and friendly, the setting is so beautiful and there is so much or so little to do, at your own pace. Only just over 1 hour to lovely beaches and puy du fou makes this place a great base to stay. Will definitely be booking again soon. Regards Robinson/ Charters. Xx

Ps fishing was great all increased our pb's . Harry still beaming. Thank you Yvonne, Glenn and Kids for great memories.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect home from home it was lovely and cosy and big enough for a party of 7 and more, plenty to do with board games and pool table to keep everyone happy

The pool was nice, the girls enjoyed the horse riding the boys really enjoyed the fishing and said it was the best so far from all our visits to France the area is so peaceful and a perfect location to get away from it all

The town of Chateaubriant has got plenty of shops and nice restaurants to go too

Yvonne and Glenn are very helpfully and full of information

All in all a great holiday was had by all

A lovely relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spot in rural Loire Valley but with plenty to see and do.

My son and his cousin fished for the week and loved it. Very beautiful surroundings. The Gite was lovely and very comfortable and I also went horse riding which was a first in fifteen years. A lovely break.

Well recommended
