“Probably the best B&B we've stayed in!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a wonderful place to stay - it's more a villa than a B&B. We had the run of 3 bedrooms, a large lounge/kitchen/dining area, large garden (with balls and lots of games), with two outdoor seating areas, a trampoline, a small pool with sun beds, a petanque court and a hot tub. Topped off with a fridge and cupboard filled with food and fresh bread/croissants delivered in the morning by the friendly and helpful owner - Jean Paul. Even supplied us with bacon and eggs :) The owners have really gone the extra mile here.

It has wonderful views, peace and quiet, is spotlessly clean, stocked with lots of fresh towels has comfy beds and a powerful shower. The local supermarket (if you want to use the full size kitchen) and a few restaurants are just a few minutes drive away.

We only stayed one night as a stop over on our way home to the UK but wished we stayed longer to soak up more of the tranquil atmosphere. Its a short distance form the A28 (which you can't see or hear) so perfect access if you are travelling down, visiting the area or returning home to the UK. Also has a large parking area behind a secure automatic gate, so you can leave all your gear on and in your car safely.

“Modern chic county side view”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The "flat" was modern with an amazing view of the county side. A group of six and we were very impressed. Jean Paul was very welcoming. Fresh bread was provided everyday. The refrigerator was stocked as well as the pantry with snacks. We were there for the 24hr Le Mans race. It was nice to have a luxury place to sleep at night. The hot tub was a perfect ending to a day of walking the track. It was a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. We would love to return again someday.

“Brilliant appartment, lovely setting, very welcoming owners”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed as a stopover with our daughter, son-in-law and 3 young grandchildren. Despite being a single night booking, nothing was too much trouble for Jean-Paul and Françoise. They were in touch before we arrived to check we were happy about how to find them and put up a union jack flag to help us locate the property. They offered to prepare an evening hamper for dinner for us too.

When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the owners and their son took the grandchildren off to the gardens to show them the games and played football with them while we were shown around.

The apartment is newly refurbished to an impeccably high standard, lovely linens and a generous supply of towels. The beds were comfortable and there were even some cheeky chocolates in the rooms! The kitchen was well supplied and a 'welcome pack' of milk, jams and eggs was a lovely touch. The small details really made the difference - wash-cloths, washing up liquid, toilet roll, towels etc were in plentiful supply and there was a good stock of dishes, cups, mugs and glasswear.

The following morning Jean-Paul brought breakfast, straight from the local boulangerie, which was a lovely way to start the day.

The setting is beautiful, with amazing views and the facilities on site were brilliant - swimming pool, Jacuzzi, garden games and a huge garden for the children to play. The building itself is traditional from the outside with all the modern touches to make the stay very enjoyable - we wished we were staying for longer.

Jean-Paul and Françoise clearly love what they do and we very much felt that nothing was too much trouble for them. We wouldn't hesitant to recommend this apartment.

“Fabulous apartment with friendly owner”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just returned from this excellent apartment and would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in the Le Mans area.

From the time of booking the owner and his wife were more than helpful even buying in food for an evening meal for us as we arrived after the local restaurant closed. They also provided excellent directions and put up a Union Jack so we could find them. We found it easy to communicate with JeanPaul as he spoke good English and Francoise his wife also understood what we were saying.

The facilities are fabulous with use of the large garden and outside games, jacuzzi and pool. The apartment itself is very modern but housed in a traditional local building and had everything we needed. It is very peaceful being on a quiet road but it is not isolated.

Every morning we were provided with baguettes and croissants from the local boulangerie for breakfast at a time that was convenient for us. The fridge was also well stocked and other necessities provided. The local supermarket was only a short drive away as were many good restaurants.

We went to the race circuit at Le Mans which was less than an hours drive away. Again JeanPaul was really helpful in providing directions and other local knowledge.

We could not fault this apartment and the hospitality of JeanPaul and his family. We left relaxed, tanned, a little bit fatter and feeling that we had made new friends. We would highly recommend this property for a holiday in the area.
