Great holiday destination
Had a great week at Bouju this August. Pool is fab, and the children loved the football table, and outdoor play equipment. Kitchen is good - especially the spacious industrial grade fridge - perfect! Multiple supermarkets within 10 minutes and loads to see very close by. Don’t miss the castle in the centre of Angers, and then the children’s playground near the river. Thank you for a great stay!
Great place for Kids
Had a great time here, lovely location with plenty of space for the kids and adults to play and relax. Two comments I would make; The beds are not all in bedrooms, it did sleep all 12 of us, but there are only 3 bedrooms with the last two sofa beds being on the upper landing and in the living room. We were fine with all the kids in the large bedroom and the adults in two bedrooms and the landing.
The other comment is the flies. The location is on a cow farm and we went in a very hot period, so this meant lots and lots of flies. We managed it with fly paper and a competition amongst the kids as to who could swot the most, but it did get to you at times and meant you had to be very conscious when preparing food.
On the whole though a great place and easy to reach lots of activities and interesting places.
A great family holiday
My wife and I, along with my son, daughter-in-law, and 2 grandchildren had a lovely week in this lovely property. The children loved the trampoline and the table football and everyone enjoyed relaxing in the pool and hot tub which was very well kept. We had all the assistance we needed from the owners of the property who could not have been more helpful. We enjoyed visits to the zoo at Doue-La-Fontaine and Les Machines De L'ile in Nantes. My wife and I visited the local Chateau which is only 5 minutes in the car from the property and we all had visits to the surrounding towns which were all very picturesque. If you are looking for a quiet break where you can relax and enjoy rural France then this is the place to go.
Lovely peaceful and quiet
Great property for two families. Lots of space and entertainment for kids. Too many flies to contend with though! Need to provide more fly tape! Overall very nice!
I'll do the flies, I didn't know there were so many.
I apologize for that and I hope you will not remain on a bad image of our location.
Wonderful, well equipped rural gîte perfect for families.
I hired this gîte for my family to stay while they attended our wedding weekend in nearby Grez-Neuville.
Although the gîte owners were away during the period of rental, they organised for a friend, Mathilde to assist us during the stay.
I cannot speak more highly of Mathilde. Nothing was too much trouble, she helped me to organise taxis for my family, organised for towels to be provided at late notice (I had got myself confused and believed that they were part of the linen package, totally my mistake) and was generally incredibly welcoming and friendly. Both Mathilde and the owner Guylaine communicated in excellent English and were genuinely a pleasure to deal with.
The gîte itself was beautiful, clean and well equipped. The garden and views were stunning. My neices (and daughter!) Really appreciated the trampoline and table-football table.
The gîte is very rural and the nearest village was very, very quiet (pretty much closed due to the August holidays) but just what my family were looking for so for us this was no problem.
The one and only complaint (and it wasnt really a complaint!) from my family was that they would have liked enough larger teacups for people.. but i think that this is only down to us being English and liking our tea in the mornings!! You can't fit a good cup of English tea in a French coffee cup! But that is the tiniest thing and would definitely not ever stop us from thoroughly recommending your gîte!!
Thank you. Xx
Thank you for your appreciation, I has done to follow to Mathilde to thank her. I am going to buy cups of tea to have the pleasure to welcome still other English people.
Thank you for your stay to l'Etape de Bouju
