Great location

  • 5 of 5
The gite was easy to find using Sat/Nav when address is entered.
The gite was of a high standard and very well furnished with a charming decor. Spotlessly clean.
The owners were friendly and informative with plenty of information on the surrounding area.
I would recommend this gite to all my friends for a peaceful and tranquil break.
Good for bird watching, cycling and walking. Interesting chateau's within easy access by car.

Peace and quiet guaranteed

  • 5 of 5
The location here is second to none - in the countryside but within easy reach of the nearest village, Armaille, it has everything going for it. The peace and quiet was only interrupted by the sound of crickets at night. Very discreet owners on hand to give advice when requested and a very friendly welcome. The gite itself is immaculate and very well equipped. The private garden is a real bonus.
The gite is well located for travelling around with plenty to see without travelling too far. Armaille is a lovely place to visit in the evenings, with dragonflies, frogs and butterflies everywhere and well within walking distance. A perfect getaway for couples, with lovely canine company in the form of Phoebe and Baxter, not forgetting the two goats and a duck, all adding to the lovely tranquil ambience.
You cannot fail to leave this place in a more relaxed and content frame of mind than when you arrived. The only problem is actually having to come home again.

A lovely little gite, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Created from a barn it has many exposed roof timbers which give character and interest. Despite its old origins the gite is modern inside and very well equipped with everything from wifi to a microwave to an extremely comfortable bed. I am sometimes wary of booking a place where the owners live on site, but in this case my concerns were unfounded! The gite is positioned in such a way as to give guests complete privacy with own gravelled parking space, patio area and secluded garden. Uninterrupted views across the countryside made it a delight to sit outside with a glass or two of wine. Rita and Alan were the perfect hosts, friendly and welcoming and on hand to answer any queries but not intrusive. Plus Rita makes the best plum jam! If only all gites were of this high standard!

We loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5
The photographs do not do this property justice. We arrived to the warmest welcome and were showed around by our kind host, Rita. The property has EVERYTHING you could want (from a coffee-maker to English channels!) and was perfect for our stay. We hired a car and made use of the great location by visiting many of the nearby towns and some further a way, such as St Malo and Mont St Michel. Armaille is so picturesque you feel as though you're standing in someone's postcard, and the nearby town of Pouance will provide everything you need (big supermarket, boulangeries, restaurants etc,)

We would highly recommend this property to anyone who enjoys sitting outside with a nice glass of red and some beautiful local produce. The views were superb and because the sun went down so late we were able to sit outside for hours. We felt as thought Alan and Rita had carved out a piece of paradise, and all we could do on our way home to Australia was plot the ways in which we could a) return for a holiday or b) live permanently nearby.

We are a couple in our 30's with a young child. She slept happily in her travel cot (we dragged it around France) and I wouldn't overlook this property if you had a baby. Our daughter loved Alan and Rita nearly as much as she loved their beautiful animals.

If it's all night clubbing with round the clock entertainment that you're after, this may not be the place for you. But if you're looking for a part of France that remains unspoilt, with hundreds of things to do within an hour's drive away (castles, châteaux, markets, beaches, forest walks, beautiful wine, fascinating historical sites and so much amazing food you'll need to buy bigger clothes etc.) then this is where you need to stay.

Oh, and the hosts are pretty fantastic too!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a real pleasure having you stay at our gite and we really enjoyed talking to you both. Your gorgeous baby is the first baby to stay at the property and she really is the prettiest and happiest baby that we have ever met.

We hope that you will come back for another visit one day.

Our Very Best Wishes
