We had a wonderful two week stay at this amazing property. It could not have been any better. It was immaculate, the kitchen was well equipped. There were toys and books for our two girls and a great selection of books for the grown ups too. The pool was amazing and very private. There is table tennis and darts which was great fun. The house is a real home from home and the showers were amazing! It was so lovely and peaceful and we all really relaxed. Bryan was easy to contact and always there for advice. We visited the beach, local castles, restaurants and towns. Clisson was a firm favourite, stunning. Cannot rate this place highly enough. Hope we get to come back!
Katherine, Ben and family, it was a pleasure to meet you all. It is always nice for us having such nice friendly people stay in our Gite. Hope we see you again...B
For families or groups looking for a quiet location but within easy reach of facilities and attractions. There is ample room for large groups with all the comforts of home and the owner is in easy reach if there are any problems.
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday here. The property is well maintained and lovely and clean. The facilities are great and the pool is lovely! There are plenty of supermarkets within a 5min drive and there's even a McDonalds 10mind away for those missing a taste of home!
There were 10 people in our party......adults, teenagers and younger children. We all had a wonderful time and would definitely stay in thus property again. Be sure to visit a puy du Fou if you visit, it's a fantastic day out.
Really quiet location but within easy reach of everything. Well equipped house that is more like a home than a normal holiday let.
