There are 2 swimming pools, both a 15-minute drive. Just right for couples: Visit the beautiful gardens of our local chateaux (4 within a 20-minute drive) or play golf on the 18-hole course. Wander around the quaint village of Bec Hellouin where time seems to stand still. You can buy the monks' hand-made pottery at the Abbey, have a crêpe and a bowl of cider on a terrace restaurant or search for a souvenir in the antique shops. Or if you enjoy sport try canoeing, wind-surfing, fishing, golf, tennis, horse-riding, swimming, or just a stroll in the local shops, mingle with the population, practise your French... ooh la la! Walk in the countryside, grab a bargain at a Brocante (Street Fair), play French boules with the locals, or just sip a glass of wine on a terrace café as you watch the world go by.More

Interaction with guests
Our two main priorities : COMFORT and CLEANLINESS We live in the village and are available if you have any questions/problems during your stay, and you may see us in the garden when we water the tomatoes in the greenhouse or feed the hens. However we respect your intimacy at all times.

Our stay at Maddie's cottage was fantastic, especially for our two young boys, who utilised the playhouse every day. The location is perfect for those looking for peace and quiet, yet close to enough to every type of attraction to keep a family entertained. Correspondence...More
