About Janice Davies

After working and living overseas from 1969 to 1998, Graham, a Telecomms Engineer and Janice, in PR, decided that retirement at 55 was not for us. Both with family backgrounds in Hospitality, we set off in 2000 for France with two cars, two dogs, two cats, a parrot - and a dream.

Janice Davies purchased this house in 2000

Why Janice Davies chose Brecé

When we saw Les Gages we fell in love with it. Some trials and tribulations later, we have turned it from the proverbial pig's ear we found into the silk purse we dreamed of.

What makes this house unique

We love Les Gages and the surrounding area too - Mayenne - rural France at its best, very much like Devon was 40 years ago.

Within a year we were on first name terms with all of our neighbours – even the Brecé Maire, Msr Goussin. We found that when visiting French friends and neighbours "aperos" need not just be before a meal and can be at anytime and lasts as long as you want it to !

Séjour très agréable pour toute la famille

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accueil et TB communication avec les propriétaires (anglophones - parfait pour travailler son anglais et pour initier les enfants !).

Nous étions en chambre d'hôtes, nous disposions d'une chambre, SDB, WC, cuisine et salon privatifs (TV anglaise). Equipements certes anciens, mais ameublement et décoration raffinés et soignés à l'anglaise. Hygiène impeccable et surtout, un accueil des plus chaleureux que nous ayons connus. Janice & Graham nous ont accueilli comme une extension de leur famille, nos enfants se sentaient comme chez eux. Il y a 2 ou 3 autres gîtes indépendants, voisins très sympathiques ou chacun dispose de son espace et de sa tranquillité. Possibilité de laver son linge sur place, très appréciable.

Bel environnement, au calme de la campagne normande, à 5 minutes de la ville la plus proche et de toutes ses commodités. Piscine, trampoline, toboggan et balançoire ont fait le bonheur de nos enfants de 2 & 4 ans (sans parler des petits compagnons sur pattes de nos hôtes : chien, perroquet). Arbres fruitiers où les fruits sont à portée de main ; nos hôtes nous ont même fait profiter des légumes bio de leur propre potager.

A améliorer peut-être : modernisation de certains équipements techniques (cuisine); de la salle de jeux (hangar complet). Pas de wifi a priori mais réseau Ok + accès 4G.

Nous recommandons sincèrement ce lieu ; nous voulions un séjour au calme, avec de l'espace et au vert, où les enfants puissent profiter du grand air et s'amuser en toute sécurité. Objectif atteint :) Un grand merci à nos hôtes, nous espérons revenir.

Owner's Response: The review is marred by some inapplicable comments. The kitchen is only intended for Tea & Coffee making, NOT for the preparation of meals. In this instance we did allow the guest to use the stove and microwave, at no extra charge, so that she could prepare food for her 2 children. So it is a bit ungracious to criticise what was provided free of charge and not intended for their general use. Also the WiFi, there IS WiFi; sometimes as we are rural the speed is not what you can expect in Paris, but that is rural life. We don't understand the comments about the games room. It has Table Tennis, Babyfoot, Pool, a library & board games which are not tatty. We conversed regularly with these guests and if these comments had been made during the stay we would have addressed and resolved them. But English wasn't their first language. They did say they would come back again. La revue est gâté selon quelques commentaires inapplicables. La cuisine est seulement destinée au Thé et la fabrication de Café, PAS à la préparation de repas. Dans ce cas nous avons vraiment permis à l'invité d'utiliser le fourneau et le micro-ondes, sans coût supplémentaire, pour qu'elle puisse préparer la nourriture pour ses 2 enfants. Donc il est un peu disgracieux de critiquer ce qui était fourni gratuitement et pas a eu l'intention à leur utilisation générale. Aussi le WiFi, EST là WiFi; parfois comme nous sommes ruraux la vitesse n'est pas à quoi vous pouvez attendre à Paris, mais c'est la vie rurale. Nous ne comprenons pas les commentaires de la salle de jeux. Il a le Ping-pong, Babyfoot, Pool, une bibliothèque et les jeux de société qui ne sont pas en mauvais état. Nous nous sommes entretenus régulièrement avec ces invités et si ces commentaires avaient été faits pendant le séjour nous aurions adressé et les avons résolus. Mais anglais n’était pas la premiere langue.Ils ont dit qu'ils allaient revenir encore une fois.
