Historic and comfortable
Over the years we have rented some great places in Normandy and Brittany for our family reunions. Domaine de Pierre Levée exceeded our expectations and was perfect for our needs. The house is as described on the website but far more beautiful than pictures can show. We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Pierre Levée this July / August of 2015.
The history of the house is impressive. There is even an ancient menhir in the surrounding Princé forest. It is a quiet location with working farms nearby. We would often see the neighbor’s horses and foal stroll into view. Our early risers saw deer in the field. It’s a great area for biking, running or long walks.
The kitchen is modern & updated but has a beautiful old fireplace with a large table in front of it. There is an extra refrigerator/freezer in the next room and a well-equipped laundry room. Although there are antiques everywhere, the house does not feel like a museum. The decoration is cozy, with warm colors and we felt at ease. We were happy to be able to use the piano in the TV room.
The website picture does not really show how many people the dining room can hold. For our stay the dining room table was extended to seat 18-20 guests comfortably. We had most of our meals outside. There is a BBQ and more than enough tables and chairs to accommodate a large group.
Bedrooms are beautifully decorated. Many have renovated en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has a balcony overlooking the pond and meadows. “The Napoleon bedroom” was an instant success.
We received a warm welcome from the owners when we arrived and they were there when we left. Owners and neighbors were very helpful and accommodating. We admire the owner’s efforts to restore and conserve the history of their property and appreciate they share it with visitors.
We can highly recommend this rental to friends / future vacationers and would love to come back ourselves. We have even been wondering how awesome the house would be in the winter time!

Beautiful home, perfect for family reunion!
Domaine de Pierre Levée is a beautiful home in a convenient location, absolutely perfect for family reunions. We stayed here last week with our extended family (a group of 18, ranging in age from 10 to 75) and the house accommodated all of us perfectly. It was spacious, clean, and inviting, with a large dining room and living room, ideal for family gatherings. We have stayed at many houses over the last decade and none was as beautiful or elegant as this one. The location of the house also provides easy access to different regions of France. It is close to the city of Nantes and the beach at Pornic, and it is also relatively easy to use the house as a launching pad for trips to Brittany and Normandy and to the castles and vineyards of the Loire Valley. We had a wonderful time at Pierre Levee and would highly recommend it!
À ne pas rater
Nous avons passé un fabuleux week-end dans cette maison à l'occasion de mon anniversaire en famille.
Après l'accueil chaleureux de la propriétaire nous nous sommes très vite senti dans l'endroit idéal.

...Lors d'un apéritif avec nos parents près d'un grand feu de cheminée
...Lors des plats préparés avec mes sœurs dans une cuisine conviviale et bien équipée
...Lors du repas dans cette salle à manger spacieuse où l'on pourrait rester des heures à rire et à refaire le monde
...Lors d'une nuit ou chacun à son espace et chaque chambre son caractère. Par ailleurs l'insonorisation est très bonne. La literie et le linge de lit sont confortables et propres. Les salles de bains sont toutes rénovées et propres.
...Lors d'un réveil avec la vue sur le parc embrumé qui s'étend au dessus l'étang
...Lors d'une balade dans les bois, d'une danse dans le salon avec les enfants ou un air de piano dans le petit salon ...
N'allez pas plus loin, voici une vraie perle rare ! Un grand merci Catherine
The perfect house for a family gathering.
We were a party of 16, 3 generations comprising 9 adults and 7 children. The house more than catered for our needs and far exceeded our expectations. The owners had thought of everything and could not do enough for us even down to sourcing a car seat for one of the grandchildren. Everyone could easily amuse themselves all day without leaving the property although we obviously did. The beaches, Nantes, Pornic, the U Boat pens and the bunker were some of the many highlights not forgetting the expeditions to the local vineyards! We would thoroughly recommend Domaine de Pierre Levee.
Spacious house and outdoors, good comfort
We stayed at Pierre Levee for a week with 16 people. The house is very nicely renovated, all comfort is there. Plenty of bed- and bathrooms for our group. We have had lovely weather which meant we could enjoy the large gardens for BBQ, volleyball, football or some fishing. The area is quiet which makes you feel there is nobody around. The pool is very nice, quite large and the heating is good.
The state of the house, the gardens and the pool are excellent.
Nantes is nearby, the sea at Pornic, and a bit further at La Baule is only a short drive by car.
We have enjoyed our stay very much, no negatives and recommend this house to others.
Super house, full of character
We had a wonderful week at Pierre Levee as a family group of 15, including 7 children, parents and grandparents. The house suited our needs perfectly and we were impressed with the way the kitchen, bathrooms etc. had been modernised while maintaining the original character of the house. The children loved the pool and had great fun with the rowing boat on the lake and there was plenty of room for games of football, cricket, tennis and of course boules.
There are many possibilities for outings in the area although the children were reluctant to leave the house and grounds! The owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful and speak excellent English.
