    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    La Bergerie, a 'shepherd's cottage' is a lovingly restored farm cottage nestled in a pretty valley in several hectares of grounds and gardens next to the Lac de Rille, a large lake famous for its bird life and a popular site for fishing. The River Lathan flows through the grounds of our garden before it flows on to the Loire and the Atlantic Ocean.

    This is a small sheltered paradise for wildlife and the perfect get-away in a rural isolation.

    The cottage comprises a large sitting/dining room on the ground floor with a log stove, brand new double bed settee, dining table and chairs, and an ancient 'petrain'. There is also a separate fully equipped modern kitchen with a second log stove, washing machine, microwave and cooker. Hot water in summer is supplied f...

    How to get there
    Airport: Tours: 30.0 km
    Railway: Saumur: 25.0 km
    Ferry: Caen, Ouisterham: 200.0 km
    Only three hours from Caen, you can take top quality uncrowded motorway almost all the way and although there are tolls they are not expensive.

    Alternatively take the Route Nationale which is almost as quick and gives you the opportunity to stop in numerous Norman towns and villages for a leisurely meal on your way, or to take a good cup of coffee at one of the many road side cafes and bars.

    From Calais or other northern French ports, the journey is a little longer, nearer four or five hours, but again there are excellent motorways which take you to Rouen and then the rest of the way.

    Look out for the signs for many attractive villages and ruins well worth visiting on the way. If you aren't in a hurry to get here, it is a far better way to journey and arrive refreshed.

This little gite is tucked away in a quiet, pretty location. Within walking distance is a small town with a bakery and walks around the lake. The gite is basic but has everything needed and the owners are just next door and very helpful and friendly.


Management response:

While we are happy with the overall review, we are disappointed about a couple of the ratings. These guests rate 'bedding' as only 3 out of 5, but they brought their own bedding and the beds and mattresses are brand new and not cheap ones. Consequently we cannot understand why they should give this rating and what is being rated.... more

We had a lovely time staying at 'La Bergerie'. We were quite tired so enjoyed a lot of lounging in the back garden in the sun and reading - nice to have this private spot. The cottage was lovely and spacious for the two of us, and would easily accommodate more. One needs to be quite flexible to negotiate the... more

This cottage is very rural, yet only a 30 or 40 minute drive from the Loire river and some of its main tourist attractions. For us this this worked very well. Adrian and Sally made us feel very welcome, going out of their way to make our stay pleasant and special. The property was clean and well maintained, small, but... more
