La Roultiere
Reviewed September 10, 2009

We rented all the gites at La Roultiere and stayed for a week with our friends and family. The weather was hot and the owners Gill and Phil are very friendly but not intrusive.
The directions to get there are good, but you do need a car to get around. The busy tourist bit of the Loire is only half an hour away with all the Chateaux, vineyard, fine eating and town markets/parties. Otherwise La Roultiere is very peaceful if you just want to stay on site.
The pool was checked/cleaned everyday and its size was okay for us. The gites are independent units, but we were able to move things around so that we could all dine together (25 of us!).

With three children aged 12, 8 and 18 months I struggled to think of a holiday which would cater for all needs while providing my husband and I with some time and space for relaxation. We hit the nail on the head with La Roultiere! An idyllic and extremely safe environment, even for the toddler. Lots of space, sun and fun for all the children. The gites are decorated and maintained to an extremely high standard and the Edgerly family are very helpful and friendly. The only (minor) draw-back was that the children were so happy at La Roultier that we had to work to persuade them to the lovely villages and chateaus the region has to offer. Fabulous! My children are already planning a return!

We had a fantastic two week holiday at La Roultiere. Our gite (Grand Grenier) was very well equipped and felt like a home from home. The whole gite complex was excellent and very child-friendly: our children thoroughly enjoyed being able to go off and play around the grounds. La Roultiere is set in an idyllic peaceful location within walking distance of the village of Breil (with its fantastic boulangerie). We enjoyed cycling many of the quiet lanes and tracks that surround La Roultiere - our favourite ride was to the lake at Rille (where we hired canoes and pedaloes). La Roultiere is also well-placed for day trips to many of the Loire's main tourist attractions: our favourites were Chateau Breze (amazing underground tunnels for the children to explore); the chateau and gardens at Villandry, and Saumur (great market, restaurants, castle).

We spent a week at La Roultiere in June 2009. It was extremely relaxing made possible by the warm welcome we received from our hosts. Our Gite was very comfortable with everything you would need for young children to have a fun holiday. The surrounding area is beautiful and quite but with plenty to see and do. We definately hope to return.

Stayed with my Wife and 2 and half year old boy. Beautifal part of France, wonderful farmhouse location. Gites of various sizes. Opportunities to mix with other Families (if you want) or the space to stay private if you prefer. Nice Adult and Toddler pools. Sports kits, Sand pit slide swings etc. Everything on site (including Gill's wonderful in house meals).

Great Pizza evenings.
WOnderful local restaurants.
Many many tourist sites - which keep the kids entertained.

Just as importantly the owners were friendly and engaging (they've had interesting lives). Children and dogs are charming and friendly.

Kicks all other Gites I've stayed at out of the park. the place is big enough to feel quiet and to have your own space but also offers the option to mix with other families trying to get a break from it all. This place is pretty unique.

Great Pizza evenings.
Wonderful local restaurants.
Many many tourist sites - which keep the kids entertained.

Can rate this place highly enough - would go back there in a shot but will have to wait until baby number two is old enough.

We stayed at this gite and had a wonderful time. The complex itself had 5 gites with lots of facilities for children such as slides, sandpits, bikes, toddler pool (as well as adult pool) etc. Our son loved having more freedom to roam than usual. As there were 5 gites, it was very sociable with the other children playing together and the adults sharing a glass of wine. Of course, you could mix as much or little as you wanted.

I really liked the area that La Roultiere was located in as it provided many opportunites for days out including a wonderful zoo at La Fleche, chateau at villandry with amazing gardens including a children's playground, etc. Most attractions were within 45 mins drive.

Gill, Phil and family made our stay a great family trip. This was the 3rd week of our 7 week holiday in Europe and came at the perfect time. We were able to relax, and let the kids unwind a bit before traveling on to Paris. Rooms were large (even by N.A. standards), communal areas were great and the pool was a great treat. They even have a fantastic play area for the kids. Very close to many Chateau's (I would recommend Breze and Chenonceau), Le Mans (shopping for the ladies and cars for the men), and I would highly recommend 'Le Puy de Fou" (sp). It was a bit of a drive but was much better than Euro Disney and half the cost (no rides, but great family entertainment).
There was a bakery in the village, but a well stocked grocery store was about a 10 minute drive.
This would make a great place for a family reunion.
It was great to meet other families from around Europe and share some stories and adventures.
