“Good location, Grate place, a comfortable stay.”

person found this review helpful

Three years ago my partner and I stayed in Fabienne's smaller Gite just round the corner and we enjoyed that fortnight. This time we took my sister and partner for their first experience of a holiday in France. Having stayed with Fabienne before, we were confident that the accommodation would be as described, comfortable, and well appointed. A little home from home.

This Gite is pretty spacious, two good sized double bedrooms lounge, kitchen, and dining room, and access to a decked patio area for those balmy evenings. Unfortunately we just had to imagine those on this trip ! At no time did we feel that with four of us staying that there was no room for individual personal space, a treat really.

The hot water system was very impressive, no waiting and no shortage. The kitchen is well appointed with modern appliances and all 'stuff' that you could need. Entertainment facilities are basic, French terrestrial TV, radio, and dvd player, but then again you are not coming here to sit in the lounge all evening are you ?

There is WiFi available, and an excellent service it is, available throughout the Gite, reliable and fast, great for downloading your daily newspaper or keeping up with e-mails.

For the able bodied the location is just a moderate stroll to the town centre and all its life, for the less able it is worth noting the access is up a charming spiral stairway, however that apart it is pretty easy to drive about once you get used to the one-way system. Parking is by mutual tolerance at times, but I found common sense was rewarded with accommodation from the local residents.

From this location, there are attractions in abundance within easy travelling distance, an hour in any direction will see you having great days out, dining in or out is good, though we were disappointed to find the local restaurant closed, even after booking a table, but there are plenty more to enjoy.

In short or long, this is a great place to base yourself to explore the area, and discover one of the great regions of France, you could just relax if you wish, but there is so much to see and discover.

“Great Gite in Ideal Location”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Le Fenet in September this is a very well appointed gite, every requirement of the holiday maker is catered for. Fabienne is very helpful and is a mine of information on this beautiful area of The Loire Valley. There is so much to do in this area the ideal way to see it is by bicycle. The Gite is located in a very quiet peaceful area of Saumur and is less than 10 minutes walk to the town centre and restaurants. The Gite also has a secure area to store bicycles and also has free street parking.

“Comfortable stay in well-located gite.”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We enjoyed staying in this spacious and comfortable gite. Well-located too - it was just a 10-minute walk down a quiet street to the town. Kitchen was particularly well-equipped - even had a wok, much to our surprise!
The owner was friendly and helpful and provided lots of information about local tourist highlights.
