“Lovely Character Gite in a Quiet Location”

We enjoyed our stay at Gite les Figuiers and what started as a one week stay turned into five weeks! Somewhat enforced because my father, unfortunately broke his leg after a fall in the bathroom. However, the warm welcome and support we received from Valerie and Harold was brilliant. They could not have been more helpful and accommodating.The gite is situated in the small hamlet of Le Busseau opposite the owners house. It is an oasis of calm and if you are looking for a get away from it all place, then this is perfect. The characterful house is a bit quirky, but that's quite endearing. It is fully furnished with a cosy log burner in the living room and dining room. We took our dogs and the closed garden was perfect for them to run around in. The lanes around the gite were also perfect for dog walking. You do definitely need a car to get about, but there is not a lot of traffic, so you can get about very easily. There is a bakery in Le Buseeau, but the closest town for shops is L'Absie about 6km away. Despite our stay being unavoidably extended, we enjoyed some lovely weather, even eating outside al fresco at the end of November! The coast is about an hour and a half drive away and there are some lovely towns and villages in the surrounding area to go exploring in. If you are looking for s larger town for shopping etc, Bressuire is about half an hour away and Nantes is about an hour. The property is not really suitable for people with limited mobility because of steps, narrow doorways and the steep open wooden staircase.

It was a delight to spend our holiday in such a peaceful setting, surrounded by beautiful countryside, but still within reach of the coast and places of historical and natural beauty.The gite and garden are well equipped and the spacious house is very comfortable and welcoming. The owners are very attentive and have provided everything needed for a holiday whether for a couple or a family.
