Wonderful property in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in this stunning property which had been recommended to us by friends.

The holiday had started well before it began as the owners had agreed to let us arrive early to suit our travel plans. Brigitte and Gabriel are a charming couple and they were waiting for us to show us round this enchanting small chateau.

Set in its own grounds across a dry moat and through the imposing main gates we were immediately struck by the lovely buildings, particularly the exquisite round room at one end of the chateau next to the well equipped kitchen.

There was plenty of room for our small group (5 adults and 1 seven month old child) and we could have doubled the size of the party without any problems.

The amenities were great - the star being the good-sized pool which was discreetly fenced off and alarmed for the safety of any young children.

There were plenty of other facilities including bicycles,a large barbecue and plenty of games including table tennis and petanque.

The property was immaculately clean, and very comfortable with plenty of options for dining or just relaxing. Our favourite spot to eat was in the garden in the shade of the tree.

Getting there was very easy. We drove down from the Caen ferry using the excellent french motorways, while some of the party flew into the Angers airport just 40 minutes drive away.

Despite the ease of access you still find yourself in the heart of the peaceful French countryside.

There is a small bakery and grocery shop in the next village and the nearest supermarket is only ten minutes drive away.

As we were only there for a week's relaxation we did not venture far but just enjoyed the peace and quiet, the sunshine and the pool. However there is plenty to do for the more active holiday makers.

All in all everything we wanted for our short break and we certainly hope to return soon.

WE à Gilbourg

  • 5 of 5

Très très beau domaine ! Encore plus agréable que l'impression qu'il donne en photo.

Nous avons organisé les 50 ans de mon mari avec la famille et les amis, nous étions une bonne 50 aine. Nous étions 15 à dormir sur place mais il est très facile de trouver des maisons d'hôtes ou des petits hôtels à proximité.

Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir un WE ensoleillé et de profiter des espaces extérieurs le samedi soir ainsi que de la piscine toute la journée du dimanche..

Nous recommandons cet endroit et nous envisageons d'y retourner pour un WE avec des amis.

Une maison d'exception pour une fête familiale

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un moment bien agréable dans ce lieu chaleureux et confortable pour fêter les 90 ans de notre père entouré de ses invités, enfants, petits enfants, arrière petits enfants. Le charme de la salle à manger , le plaisir de la cheminée ont remporté les suffrages des petits comme des grands. Les aînés ont apprécié l'absence de résonance de la pièce et le confort de leur chambre en rez de jardin. Les enfants ont profité du parc et chacun a pu trouver sa place tout au long du week end dans cette demeure familiale où l'on se sent bien.

Nous remercions les propriétaires pour leur accueil, leur disponibilité et toutes leurs sympathiques attentions.

Another brilliant holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We returned in early August for our second holiday at Gilbourg and we were not disappointed. There have been a few changes since our last visit - the addition of a ground floor en-suite bedroom was perfect for my elderly father, but the house remains a wonderful place to spend our summer break. We were a large group - 14, including 2 small children but we had plenty of space, both inside the house and in the grounds ( enough for a family cricket match!). Much use was made of the pool and we valued the fact that it was secure and safe for the children. The houses are beautiful and well equipped, though, yet again we had excellent weather so spent most of our time outdoors. Gabriel and his sons were most welcoming and it is clear that they have great pride in their house - this is no ordinary holiday rental! We are already planning our next visit - Gilbourg is a real family favourite!

Un endroit de charme, un accueil prévenant.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 jours à Gilbourg au début de l’été pour des retrouvailles amicales et familiales.

Ce lieu, plein de charme, est parfaitement adapté à ces moments de partage. Nous étions 14 à occuper l’espace avec des enfants. Chacun a trouvé sa place pour se reposer et s’amuser dans un domaine très confortable.

Nous avons pu célébrer notre mariage dans la grande salle de la tour avec nos 60 invités.

La présence d’une piscine sécurisée a été très appréciée des petits et grands.

Les propriétaires sont chaleureux, prévenants et attentifs au bien être de leurs hôtes.

Un lieu à découvrir et à apprécier…
