Very peaceful rural setting just 3 miles from all amenities. Well furnished modern Gite, perfect for us as a couple and would suit families as well. Lovely to hear the horses munching in the field next door and we missed the cluck of the chickens one morning but we were told they do not like to go out in the rain! Nadia could not have been more helpful and attentive and especially when we had a car wheel problem! She certainly went the extra mile for us. A variety of restaurants are worth a visit and for us the Golf Courses are the big draw in this area. They are in good condition and challenging but enjoyable for all handicaps. We will definitely be revisiting.

A very spacious, well equipped and clean gite in a quiet rural setting.
A short drive to the Loire river and local supermarkets.
Excellent location for access to Angers, Nantes and slightly further Saumur.
Spa pool is a great extra if you get the weather.
Under cover parking is a real bonus to keep the car cool.
The horses at the end of the garden are lovely to see every day.
The owner, is very friendly and helpful.
All in all, you really can't go wrong staying here and it is excellent value for money.

This property is very nicely decorated, very well equipped and in a quiet location. We enjoyed the wood burning stove, all the wood was provided for this. Nadia was knowledgeable about the local area, and very willing to help. Being able to have just part of the property, as there was just the two of us was a great option, making it more affordable, we would be happy to return.
