Simply stunning home, grounds and pool we're the icing on the cake!
We were a large party of 14 including children and grandparents and the house had more than enough room to fit us all in very comfortably. The house was fully equipped with all amenities necessary, the bbq and ping pong table were a big hit!
A few more directions regarding taking care of the pool would have been good though!
The area was very quiet and a car is necessary, not much was open during August so be prepared to travel for a meal out!
Over all we enjoyed a fantastic family holiday and will recommend Gilbourg to everyone!
Merci Beaucoup Katie. Je prends note pour la piscine c'est une bonne idée
A true home from home !
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 !
Merci pour votre appréciation et votre venue. Nous essayons chaque année d'apporter un plus. J'espère que vous trouverez une amélioration lors d'une prochaine venue ou celle de votre amie Suzan... déjà venue deux fois à Gilbourg
A truly lovely holiday!
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.
Merci John pour cette belle appréciation. Nous sommes heureux que vos vacances se soient bien déroulées et surtout reposantes....Vous connaissez l'adresse et la route si vous souhaitez y revenir...Nous avons été également très contents de retrouver une maison propre et rangée.
John thank you for this great appreciation. We are pleased that your holiday will be relaxing and especially smoothly .... You know the address and the road if you want to come back ... We were also very happy to find a neat and tidy.
Wonderful property in a beautiful location.
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.
Merci Andrew et Veronique pour cette appréciation . A bientôt certainement dans notre belle région
Un domaine paisible et enchanteur !
Nous avons passé un long week-end dans cette belle demeure en famille.
Tout est parfait, bien équipé, décoration soignée, espaces extérieurs très agréables.
Nous nous y sentions tellement bien que nous sommes même pas sortis pour visiter les alentours !
Je recommande vivement et à une prochaine fois, c'est sur!
Des vacances formidables. Ein traumhafter Urlaub.
C'était une maison dont on rêve, un vrai château, bien restauré, avec un jardin superbe, la grande table à l'ombre d'un bel arbre, une belle piscine, une balançoire pour les enfants,... et autour de tout un fossé...
C'est idéal pour les familles avec des enfants.
L'intérieur est équipe avec goût et avec beaucoup d'amour.
Les chambres sont belles, la grande salle de séjour avec la grande cheminée dans la tour ronde est incroyable où l'on se sent vraiment bien.
La cuisine est très bien équipée.
Il y a beaucoup de choses à visiter dans la région,
des châteaux, des villes, des abbayes, des parcs...
Et quand on quitte la propriété on peut se promener le long de la rivière du Layon et des vignobles. C'est très joli.
Et les propriétaires étaient tellement gentils et très soucieux de tout.
Je vais retourner!! Merci pour des vacances formidables.
Merci Jochen pour ce gentil commentaire. Nous serons également ravis de vous revoir, car chaque année nous essayons d'améliorer notre maison et le parc. Vous connaissez l'adresse et la route désormais
