The cottage is 14kms from the historic market town of Chateaubriant, so, plenty of shops including 3 hypermarkets and several good restaurants are less than 15 minutes by car. Locally, you can sample the vast selection of cheese, crepes, galettes, cider and wines and of course the famous Chateaubriand Steak. In the region there are nearby, forests and lakes with safe man-made beaches, providing swimming, watersports, cycling and walking trails. There is a good selection of golf courses, fishing lakes, riding stables as well as Ten Pin Bowling and Go Karting, swings and crazy golf. The cottage provides an excellent base for touring the Loire Valley, with its magnificent chateaux and famous vineyards. The larger towns of Angers, Nantes and Rennes are all approximately an hour’s drive, and the coast is about an hour and half’s drive.
The owner of the Cottage/Gite Jane, has done a marvellous job on this rural old farm building.
The cottage was well maintained and clean, and well kitted out.
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a peaceful and relaxing holiday in the countryside. Lots of wild life to watch in the evenings.
Many thanks Jane.
