Great, character cottage

  • 5 of 5

Unique location with access to private garden, grounds, pool and river front. The area is very quiet being out of the main Loire area so best for relaxing round the cottage. Great wildlife park nearby and Le

Mans and Angers well worth visiting.

Peace and tranquility assured.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at this lovely cottage, hidden away from the world down a tree lined drive. The ease of everything from our point of arrival until, sadly, our point of departure, was without doubt joyous. A clean and tidy house, well maintained, manicured gardens, a lake, a river, a forest, a pool, a barbecue and mostly peace and serenity. We needn't of left the grounds but for the necessary food shopping and visiting the beautiful town of Chateau Gontier for our newly adopted aperitif ritual.

The pool was a very nice temperature, perfect for our two year old who had no hesitation getting into the water. An indoor pool was a great idea for year round watery fun.

We never saw Ludovic or his charming family until our point of departure, but knowing they were just a stones throw away if needed gave peace of mind.

We can't recommend this place enough. Did not want to go home and had the holiday blues for a week afterwards.

Neil, Monique & Hunter

We have been here twice. It is brilliant. The cottage is snug. The land fabulous and the river wonderful. Chateau Gontier is a pretty town and is close to Anger and Laval. Ludovic is totally wonderful. We'll always come back to visit

Logement sympathique (tout comme les propriétaires, merci !).

Les plus : le calme, la cheminée (pas pu tester la piscine fermée en hiver et avons en contre partie testé la cheminée), le parc, proche de Château-Gontier y compris à pied

Le moins : le réseau (WIFI/TV) pas toujours au niveau

Nous recommandons avec plaisir

Gîte confortable dans un domaine sublime

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer une semaine de détente et de calme dans ce gîte très agréable. Le grand jardin, la piscine, la barque à disposition pour aller passer les écluses, bref, tout était au rendez-vous pour des vacances bien réconfortantes. Les enfants ont adoré!

Le gîte lui même est un peu sombre, mais très fonctionnel.

Les abords du château, les balades dans le domaine, les lapins et les poules (une spéciale dédicace au coq le plus beau que je connaisse!), le cocker, le bruit de l'eau... bref, un vrai dépaysement pour nous.

Merci également à nos hôtes, Ludovic et Marie, discrets mais présents si besoin.

Nous reviendrons!

Très bon moment

  • 4 of 5

Un très bon moment de détente et de liberté en famille pour le week end Pascal. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Ludovic dans sa propriété familiale. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié de pouvoir profiter de tout le domaine, faire de généreuses flambées et de belles promenades sur la Mayenne grâce aux barques. Nous nous sommes sentis très bien dans ce bel environnement que nous recommandons sans hésiter!
