We stayed here for two wonderful weeks in August. The weather was hot, the pool cool and the wine cold. Ed and Rita were very knowledgeable and helpful nothing was too much trouble. I remember bbqs under the stars, and the peaceful evenings. The Loire was wonderful: Saumur, the canoeing from Montreuil Bellay, the markets and the local vinnery. Manoir de Launais was a little hidden gem but do check the days it is open.
We all look forward to returning again.

“The ultimate french retreat”
Just had a wonderful ten days staying in 'The Barn'. The gite was great; clean, spacious and very well equipped.
The bedrooms are big, light and airy with amazing views of the surrounding countryside. The new owner has installed new modern bathrooms and i can quite honestly say the shower is amazing!!
Although you are in the middle of the countryside the phone reception is great, but there is also wifi in the gite which is a nice touch.
There is a newly installed swimming pool which was a nice surprise. I could have quite easily spent the whole holiday on the sun loungers enjoying the tranquility, but there is way too much to do in the surrounding area.
It really was a great location, feels remote but everything you need is really close. The big supermarket was only about 15minutes away.
Ed and Rita, although relatively new to the area, have a great knowledge of the area with good tips of where to go. They introduced us to their local vineyard(5 minute walk) and we found some beautiful wines to bring home. They also arranged for us to have fresh bread delivered which was great, fresh baguette every day!!
I could go on and on!! We had a wonderful holiday and 'The Barn' at Le Tilleul served as a great home from home.
We stayed here overnight on 24th June and we are returning on
17th July As we loved it so much We intend to have a longer holiday soon The whole complex that Eddie and Rita have worked on is superb The gite was brilliant comfortable and spacious . Their welcome was lovely and was Rural France at its best!
My comments surely indicate that I fully recommend this beautiful country abode to all
Thanks for your intro to a wonderful visit see you again very soon
