A true home from home !

  • 5 of 5

We had been recommended to stay at Angers-Saumur-Layon by friends who have had the pleasure of repeated visits. We were not disappointed! It is an ideal venue for a family gathering, with everything you need for a perfect holiday . The house is spacious and well equipped, the garden and pool expansive. We had a relaxed holiday with lovely weather. Thank you Brigitte !

A truly lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of eight and have just returned from a lovely week at Gilbourg, truly the best French holiday we have had.

The house (approached over a moat like bridge through large double gates) is set in a beautiful quiet area surrounded by vinyards. The rental is made up of three separate buildings close together and contain everything needed for a large group holiday. All of the bedrooms were nicely furnished and the bathrooms and toilets were clean. The main kitchen is full of cooking utensils, plates, cutlery and glasses - more than you would ever need.

The main lounge and dining room is truly unique, the nicest room I have ever seen. It is a beautiful, huge dome shaped building with a massive dining table, lots of armchairs, TV/DVD etc. and full of interesting ornaments and pictures. There is also another large lounge in the main house with a second small kitchen and TV/DVD etc. There are also several fridges/freezers and washing machine and dryer.

Outside the house the large garden is well laid out with mature interesting trees. The heated swimming pool very large and is safe for children being fully enclosed and just 1.5mtrs deep. There are lots of garden chairs and sun loungers and 2/3 barbeques. Gabriel and Brigitte are very nice, they left us completely alone for the week but were contactable by phone if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this rental and we hope to return again next year.

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.

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Cette maison m'est très chère car j'ai grandi dedans pendant la plupart de mes vacances avec mes frères et mes cousins! Que de bons souvenirs! Je n'ai pas été déçue en revenant, au contraire. Les lieux ont été très bien réarrangés avec le maintien du cachet du lieu. Je me suis sentie comme chez moi!! Le contact avec les propriétaires est très agréable. La maison est très spacieuse ce qui permet de séjourner nombreux sans se marcher dessus et le cadre est superbe même l'hiver! Je recommande!

Beaucoup de caractère, énormément de confort !

  • 5 of 5

La première impression, même extérieure, est la bonne : On sera bien ici ! 5 couples d'amis, tous assez exigeants sur le caractère, le confort et les équipements y ont trouvé ce qu'ils espéraient. Le grand salon circulaire est impressionnant mais très convivial. (La grande cheminée bienvenue en mi-saison.) Le logis avec les chambres principales très confortables et décorées (très bonnes literies). Environnement hyper calme, et très beau parc. Terrain de pétanque de qualité "professionnelle" ! Une excellente adresse, et beaucoup d'attention de la part des propriétaires pour préparer notre séjour. Merci !
