What a treasure

  • 5 of 5

The Gardener’s House is very well equipped and in the most beautiful of settings. To look out over and walk through the gardens is a pleasure. The countryside offers a quiet setting for rest and relaxation. Ghislaine welcomed us warmly and generously shared her garden’s bounty and homemade products. The home served as an excellent base to bicycle through the wheat fields of the northern Loire Valley. Easy access to the tow paths along the Mayenne River is a real bonus for cyclists.

Agréable séjour

  • 4 of 5

Logement agréable et bien dimensionné pour 5 personnes. Mais vite humide avec l'automne (simple vitrage)

Qualité de la literie impeccable.

Calme et tranquillité absolue.

Dommage que nous n'ayons pas eu suffisamment de temps pour profiter du jardin et du parc.

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderbarer Ort zum Erholen, für Familien, Hunde und Kinder, aber auch für Paare geeignet...viel Ruhe für gestresste Geschäftsmänner! Rosen-und Gemüsegarten, ein liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Ferienhaus, mit allem was man braucht: Pool zum morgendlichen schwimmen, ein Grill für späte Nachmittagsstunden, Fahrräder zum radeln, kleine schönes Schlösschen zum besichtigen in der Nähe und ein sehr freundliche Vermieterin! Nur zu empfehlen!!!!

Un coin de paradis !

Super séjour, tout y est : nature, calme, animaux, balades, beauté des lieux... Une maison qui donne sur un potager incroyable, dans une nature et un domaine magnifique! Avec des enfants c'est l'idéal. Et on est très bien accueilli.

Un séjour parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Véritable havre de paix!!

Superbe maison décorée et rénovée avec beaucoup de goût. Maison très propre. On s y sent tout de suite très à l aise. La maison est entourée de nature, un potager d un hectare parfaitement entretenu d un côté et de l autre un jardin Avec un grand arbre sous lequel il fait bon se délasser.

Quant à Ghislaine, elle est disponible et agréable.

Nous n hésiterons pas à y revenir!

Merci à Ghislaine pour sa gentillesse et son accueil.
