Wij hebben een mooie week gehad in en rondom deze gite! Een prachtige omgeving, daadwerkelijk de \'tuin\' van Frankrijk. Een heel gevarieerde streek. Veel fietsmogelijkheden. De gite staat 3 km van Montreuill, hier kun je dus als je wilt op de fiets heen. Een leuke plaats met diverse winkels en een hele grote supermarkt. Ook is hier een mooi kasteel te bezoeken. De gite is onderdeel van een oude boerderij, zoals de naam al zegt. Naast de gite zit een bed&breakfast (van dezelfde eigenaren) en daarnaast wonen de eigenaren. Erg aardige mensen. Je zit aardig op jezelf, maar als je vragen hebt op hulp nodig hebt, helpen Julie en Keith je. Aan de andere kant van de weg (in het gehucht Panreux, ten zuidwesten van Montreuill-Bellay) zit een boerderij, leuk voor kindjes om koeien te kijken. De gite ziet er keurig schoon en verzorgd uit en is van vrijwel alle gemakken voorzien. Voor kinderen is er speelgoed, schommels, voetbaldoeltje, basketbalpaaltje en de kipjes om naar te kijken. Het is ons erg goed bevallen!

Heel mooie en bijzonder comfortabele woning, midden van een landelijke omgeving. De rust is hier alom!
