Back in 2003 we decided to search for a holiday home in the Brittany/Pays de la Loire region having visited the area many times. We discovered La Salle and both fell in love with its peaceful location, beautiful oak beams and extensive grounds plus many nearby places to visit. Our children and four young grandchildren love it as much as we do and the gites make an ideal, get-away-from it all location for family holidays.
|Year property purchased||2003|
|Why this location?||Living in Kent we wanted somewhere in the French countryside that we could reach for a long weekend or short break but far enough south for warmer weather and to make us feel that we were away from it all. Plenty of interesting places to visit nearby, 40 minutes from the beach and just a mile from the local village.|
