We had a wonderful 2 weeks staying in this well equipped holiday home. It was a bonus that we didn't have to bring any bedding etc, even tea towels and all cleaning good were provided.

Lovely house with a big garden for the kids to run around. Owners, Trevor and Angie, live next door and are on hand should you need anything. When booking their contact was quick and informative.

Would recommend this lovely holiday home if you want to explore this part of Brittany/ Loire Atlantique. We particularly liked Vitre and the house is very close to Chateaubriant, which has everything you need.

Had a lovely week ,away excellent value for money. Just as pictured and described. I had my 2 young children with me and they so enjoyed the garden and swings. The setting is idyllic and peaceful. A big thank you to Angie and Trevor who assisted us with locations, shops and which beach to head to.
Definitely a place I shall be returning to...
