“Wonderful”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The accommodation was excellent; clean, well equipped and bigger that it appears on the website. Our kids loved the pool and the friendly dog. The owners were very helpful without being intrusive. A wonderful place!

“Best Rental Yet”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Everything about this lodge is perfect. We travelled with 2 children aged 5 and 12 and both enjoyed staying in this property as much as we did.

The lodge is set in a beautiful area probably about 1 to 2 miles from the nearest road. The lodge is furnished to an extremely high standard and has absolutely everything you need for a fantastic stay from linen, towels, new fitted kitchen and bathroom, comfortable living area, books, children's games and as much information as you'd probably find in the nearest tourist information office.

The pool is bigger than we expected and heated which is a real bonus. Outside there is use of a large BBQ, table and chairs and a large selection of bicycles to suit all ages. A car is essential for a stay here but the lodge is close enough to Angers, Nantes and many Chateaus to keep everyone entertained.

The owners of the lodge live in the adjoining house and are available if you need anything but in no way impose on your stay. They also welcomed us with a lovely bottle of wine which was a nice touch. Everything in the house and grounds is spotless and I have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a luxury rental in a beautiful quiet location.

Thanks Anne-Louise for such an enjoyable stay and we will definitely be back again (hopefully sooner rather than later).

“Bliss....”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We arrived in angers on a Sunday only to find all supermarkets closed. However on arrival at beautiful Shakespears Lodge the owner Anne-Louise welcomed us with wine, lasagne, butter and milk to see us through until supermarket opened. We managed to buy bread from a garage.Thought this was a lovely gesture. The Lodge itself is tastefully decorated with everything you need. Bedding, towels etc are spotless as is the whole house. No expense has been spared in making this house very comfertable. Although the owners live on site, its very private and they dont bother you. The pool is a fabulous bonus and again, very private. If its peace and tranquility your after, this is the place!!! Theres also a large gas bbq, although not mentioned when booking, a €30 charge is requested at the end of your stay.(personally think its rather steep). The lodge is rural but worth a visit. There is a dog onsite Anzak, who is very friendly. No waste of food when he's around. Loved our weeks stay, as did our Grandaughter,
Son and Daughter in law. Hope to visit again in the future..
