Lovely stay in a beautiful place!
Stunning surroundings and a beautiful house. Just returned from 2 weeks of relaxation exploring the surrounding area. Su and Ian couldn't do enough for us and our boys loved running around and playing with the chicken! Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting complete peace away from it all!
It was lovely to meet you all and glad you had a lovely relaxing stay. Hope to see you again in the near future.
A delightful property, very rural, great hosts.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay, our hosts were a very friendly and helpful.
The surrounding area has many places of interest, pleasant towns and villages to explore.
We hope to return some time.
Great guests! It was lovely to meet you all and hope to meet again in the near future
Can't wait to go back!
We stayed at the cottage for 2 weeks in the summer and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was really comfortable, clean and had everything we needed and more. The larger bedroom with the king size bed was beautiful with all the exposed beams and the view from the window was amazing.
We even spotted deer grazing in the field nearby and loved the herons that were regular visitors while we were there. There was plenty to see and do during our stay. We visited the water park in Laval and the kids really enjoyed splashing around and playing in the pool. We also visited the refuge de l’arch which is a zoo for rescued animals in Chateau Gontier and is well worth a visit. All in all we had a really good holiday and will definitely be booking again in the future.
Thank you Dianne and Jon. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay. It was lovely to meet you all and look forward to seeing you again later in the year.
We had a wonderful long weekend
The house was super, the owners are very friendly and also very discreet! We spent a lovely weekend and we will come back with pleasure. Also lovely places to visit with kids around: lakes, zoo, rivers, nice villages and castels.
Thank you for your hospitality!
Corina, Alexandre and co.
It was a pleasure having this lovely family to stay. They kept the cottage clean and tidy and we look forward to having them stay with us again in the future.
