“Le Hutereau ,charming french gites nestled in the beautiful french countryside”
Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a wonderful week at Le Hutereau "Sauvignon".Our Gite was very well
appointed extremely clean & comfortable.
The setting was lovely & peaceful.Great for a restful holiday or a weekend .
There is lots to do in the surround areas,or those who wish to rest & relax
or simply enjoy a meal & drinks in the Sauvignon's private garden /patio area.
Our hosts Simon & Zara made us feel very welcome & were able to give us all
the help we needed to discover this lovely area in the french countryside.
Their knowledge of the Mayenne District & professional manner was pleasing
to experience.
We would definitely recommend to our family & friends a stay at Le Hutereau ,its well worth a visit.
Thanks again Simon & Zara.

“Relaxing holiday for all of us”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in Sauvignon for a week in August. The location is off the beaten track and very peaceful with views of fields and cows. The gite had a small garden where we sat for lunch but we spent a lot of time in the bigger grassed area to the side which has a wendy house, 2 swings and plenty of space for football, boules, bike riding etc. There is a shed with toys and games.
We were the first guests to go in the swimming pool which will be a great space to use and chill out.
The gite was very well equipped, clean and a lot larger than it looked online. The girls (5 and 7) were very excited to sleep in bunk beds (even though they could have had a room each). The rooms were comfortable and tastefully decorated.
We enjoyed the local area especially the road train in Fougeres (next time we will visit the castle as it looked good) and Les Jardins des Renaudies (just 6 mins from the gite by car) which had an activity day but the gardens were worth a visit without the activities.
Simon and Zara were great hosts and on hand to give us information and maps for the local area and they helped us to book a horse riding lesson which turned out to be a 2 hr pony experience.
A great and relaxing holiday which we all enjoyed. We will be back to holiday here again in the next few years.

“Peaceful and comfortable base to explore the attractions of Mayenne, Normandy and Brittany.”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Owners Zara and Simon could not have been more welcoming; always on hand to help or advise, but never intrusive. We stayed in Sauvignon, one of their three gites, during early April and enjoyed sunny weather, with the cooler nights spent snugly in front of the efficient wood-burner. The house had been newly decorated and was very clean and well-furnished with everything we could have wished for. The bed was comfortable and the peaceful, rural surroundings meant we slept exceptionally well, waking to delightful views over the birch-studded landscape. The surrounding countryside was wonderful to explore, with quiet lanes bordered with hedgerows alive with wildlife and mossy banks studded with thousands of primroses. One of the many highlights was seeing the barn owl, which nests in the outbuildings, leaving the building in the evenings to go hunting. There are several interesting local towns within a short drive of Le Hutereau and we had a great time following some of our hosts' recommendations and discovering the variety of food, wine and architecture in the area.
Le Hutereau is hidden away in an area of farmland which seems to recall the slower pace of pre-war agricultural practice, with small dairy herds and vintage tractors. Farmhouses and barns date back five hundred years or more, and most have their own selection of chickens, goats and the occasional pig roaming in their yards and orchards. Ancient apple trees are often weighed down under a burden of mistletoe and there is a real sense of enchantment, as if you were stepping back in time. Le Hutereau itself is a lovely stone building with an ancient bread oven and fascinating old outbuildings, where the original stalls for beasts can still be seen.
In terms of modern comfort, there is a superb selection of food and wine available in the local supermarkets and we spent several happy hours choosing the evening's selection to be enjoyed in front of the fire. The local bakeries offer a spectacular selection of breads, cakes and pastries and there are some fine creperies, many offering good-value set menus, accompanied by the local cider.
There is ample space around the gites for sitting outside with a book and the positioning means it is possible to enjoy a sunny corner at almost any time of day. We can thoroughly recommend these gites for a relaxing holiday, or as a base for a more energetic exploration of Brittany, Normandy and Mayenne.
