Welcome to our gite, a wonderful 200 year old property which has been beautifully restored to such a high standard that it featured in a full length article in Living France magazine.
The property is located in a tranquil rural location, in a hamlet 1 mile from Vaas and the River Le Loir and 6 miles from the bustling small town of Chateaux du Loir which has a fabulous range of shops, cafés, restaurants and fantastic Saturday market.

Four of us used this gite to stay in for the the Le Mans 24 hour race week .
It is really well located for the circuit . The house it’s self is a pretty farmhouse very well equipped and spotlessly clean .
It was lovely returning in the evening after being at the the circuit such a tranquil place .
Relaxing stay in the delightful countryside near the quaint village of vaas . Plenty of interesting places to visit and lovely wines of the Loire Valley.
La Refuge is a stunningly properly in a fantastic part of France . We travelled with 2 friends who also loved the trip. The house is perfect , very clean and has everything and more to make guests feel at home. It is in a very peaceful village within walking distance of a bar, restaurant , shop and bakery.
There are so many things to do locally the owner has a lot of tourist information available to guests. We visited a local chateaux and vineyards. Along with spending time relaxing and drinking wine at la Refuge.
We would highly recommend this place and would look to return next summer and take our children next time.
We stayed at la refuge for a week over Easter . It is by far the best house we have ever rented in France . We visit France three times a year and will book this place again .
The location is great for visiting the Loire Châteaux and vineyards . We also spent an afternoon in Le Mans which was just 30 minutes away . We also took our bikes and got out a couple of days as the house is located on the Loire cycle route.
The house itself is spotlessly clean and very well equipt . The log burners were an added treat .
Owners were helpful and informative ahead of the visit .
I would highly recommend this place .
