“A superb escape!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cottage is laid out well with almost all the creature comforts you'd need. It is worth mentioning that there is no tv, dvd or wifi. As we travelled with our 5 year old son it was a minor culture shock! This however, was quickly turned into a lovely benefit as the 3 generations gathered around the large dining table, talking, playing games while eating the local produce and enjoying fabulous wines (and juice)!

It's small village location is very picturesque, with a local shop, church, lovely walks and views in nearly every direction. There is the occasional HGV passes through but you can only hear them as you set back from the main road, making it safe for younger children. It is worth mentioning the stairs as they are a little tricky to navigate for the older traveller but my 70 year old mother with her hip replacement and several glasses of wine managed just fine!

The garden and parking bay opposite are well kept and spacious, with a set of patio furniture and a BBQ makes it ideal for a little of the al fresco as it catches the sun all day!

Mayenne is only a short drive away with every shop you can hope for from a big Aldi to fine jewellers. There is so much to see and do in Mayenne, it easily fills days accommodating every age group. Other towns in the vicinity are well worth a look, St Suzanne was our favourite.

In short the cottage is perfectly placed within a glorious part of France. It's purposeful lack of technology almost forces you to relax and unwind, there is ample space to be on your own or take advantage of how family focused the place is. Yes there are characteristics about the cottage that some may find awkward, but it isn't a new build hotel near an airport or city ring road, its a charming old place in the heart of the countryside. We came away from there refreshed and closer as a family!

“A blissful place to stay”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Walking in to the cottage, one is filled instantly with a sense of possibility. The white walls and uncluttered space allows you to create your own holiday atmosphere. The long dining table is perfectly suited to long french meals, and each of the rooms are tastefully decorated creating a sense of peace and tranquillity.
Within easy reach of stunning French countryside, I can't wait to go back.
