This is a wonderfully restored Manoir, ideal for large groups and families. Bélinda is an excellent host, very attentive and caring for the guests. Would recommend 100%.
We visited with a family of 10 and a dog. This included 4 young children who were spellbound by the castle, the pool and the grounds. We only left the Manoir to go to the supermarket and vets and never got bored. Everything we needed was provided and the kids had great fun exploring all the different rooms. Belinda was a lovely and helpful host, making sure that we got the most out of our stay. The grandchildren have already asked when we're going again! Thank you Belinda.
Lovely property with huge outside decks and beautiful pool
We are a large family group including grandparents, children and the grandchildren ranging from 4 years old to twenty somethings. It suited everyone, especially the pool !!! The Manoir is very private with everything you need it has very large gardens which were a haven for birds and wildlife. Whilst we were there we had visits from numerous birds, bats, frogs, deer, coypu and one night even wild boar. This is an ancient building and only in France could you get the opportunity to stay in such place, we felt lucky to be able to say we had stayed in a Castle .
The area has many lovely places to visit including La Baule , Croisic, Guerande, Pornic, San Marc, Briere National Park all with festivals galore and the for those looking for something different the WW11 Submarine pens in St Nazaire.
Our host Belinda was lovely and contactable at all times as was her housekeeper Isabelle . A lovely family holiday .
What an amazing place!!
We stayed at the Manoir for a week-long family gathering which at its peak comprised 10 adults, 2 teenagers, four children, a baby and a dog. The house and cottage together provided ample space for all and we never felt crowded. All the rooms are spacious and there are many living spaces as well as all the bedrooms so lots of different activities can proceed in parallel. The property is a beautiful old manor house and was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, well equipped and quiet. The pool was a favorite with youngsters and adults as was the outdoor table-tennis table. We arrived a little early and Isabelle, the housekeeper, met us and gave us a very useful tour of the house including instructions on how to operate the pool cover and cleaner. All in all it was everything that we had hoped for.
Wonderful property, 15th century with 21st century
Beautiful house in very private grounds and extremely well equipped, lovely pool and decking area. Owner very helpful and always answered emails and kept in touch right up to the end of our holiday. We went as an extended family of 14, 11 adults and 3 children for 2 weeks. It was fabulous. Only warning if you are not too steady on your feet then staircases are a bit tricky. Many thanks to the owner for the use of a fabulous house that we will all miss!!!
nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Donges dans un grand gîte très bien équipé et avons tous bien profité de la piscine chauffée (idéale pour le bébé de 5 mois). Nous étions 12 , 4 générations et tout le monde a trouvé sa place!
un seul bémol côté cottage une désagréable odeur d'égout persistante et gênante au premier étage
Je suis ravie que votre séjour se soit bien passé.
Quant à l'odeur dans le cottage, nous avons fait vider la fosse septique la veille de votre arrivée (comme tous les 5 ans) ce qui explique sans doute la gêne occasionnée.
Grâce à votre commentaire, nous veillerons à le faire pendant la fermeture du gîte. Nous en sommes vraiment désolés.
