5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

About the neighbourhood
Montreuil Poulay is a quiet village and the cottage sits in the square with plenty of opportunities to observe rural French village life and a perfect base for outdoor activities including hiking/walking, fishing, cycling & mountain biking. Local attractions include Lassay-les-Châteaux with its 3 Châteaux,there are great tours of the chateaux through most of the year and the cottage is 10 mins drive away. In Lassay there are several bars and restaurants all very reasonable and offering local cuisine. There is a rose garden in the centre and a childrens play area. A market is held on a Wednesday morning where you can buy bread, meat, fish and cheeses. You can't beat shopping at the market, having a walk around the chateaux and lake then enjoy a meal before heading off somewhere else... more
