“Peaceful haven with”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Arrived on 21st July to be greeted with home grown produce, bread, cheese, wine and chilled lemonade - lovely. You are perfectly located, enjoying the sunny weather of the Loire, and yet not too far from Paris and Eurodisney (where we spent our middle weekend). We stayed two weeks and didn’t want to come home on 3rd Aug.
The gite, which was spotless, is fully equipped with everything you could need – including novels when I had finished the four I had brought with me. We enjoyed feeding the chickens and rabbit and picking and eating your cherries. Jon read a book cover to cover for the first time in years; the kids enjoyed playing in the garden, bathing in the pool and watching the Disney Channel; I enjoyed sharing wine and making jam with you both. We even managed to get out and about in the local lanes for a short run of a morning before the temperature hit 25C by 10am.
Locally we enjoyed sightseeing, the old town of Le Mans is a must for a meal and the Nuit des Chimeres, paddling in the river and sunbathing at St Leonard des Bois, the cafe culture in Alencon, and the children loved the outdoor activities in the area - highly recommend the high wires at St Leonard – it was a pity it was 30C most afternoons or we would have loved to have hired canoes.
Thank you Jackie, Tony and Harry for a lovely holiday - the best we have had in years. I have already shared the details, I am that confident that others will love Maison Ensoleillee too!
