Quintessential character French gite with all home comforts“
We stayed at Poppas gite in Les Mortiers for a long weekend in mid May as a stopover on our way home from Charente Maritime.
What a perfect location and ambience; for couples, families, active holidays (especially cycling), house hunting etc Jean and Mike are perfect hosts. They have lived and operated their gites in France for nearly 20 years so they have thought of everything, can advise on the best restaurants, places to visit and the vineyards worth visiting. Their wine knowledge is excellent. Our gite was charming, fully equipped for comprehensive cooking, seats for everyone at dining table, in salon and outside. Bikes available for a nominal €1 an hour so there is no need to hike a car full of bikes with you. The village is really within walking/bimbling on a bike distance. We had a lovely day out in Saumur, Saturday was market day, lunch at a very reasonably priced character restaurant Mike recommended, and visited a local winery he suggested on the way back.
The weather had been superb, but for our weekend was unusually cold with some rain but it didn't affect our stay. I swam every morning in the gorgeous large heated and covered pool, but the cover is not claustrophobic (like many I've seen on pools) so no getting chilly if the weather is inclement. The sides can all be slid back so in hot weather (the norm!) it's open air but still some protection from the sun, I burn so badly as I'm very fair, and perfect for children and babies.
The journey to Normandy/Brittany ports is very easy, so more holiday time!
Thank you Jean and Mike for a restful weekend, we will be back for far longer next time. We are keen cyclists and you would be a perfect base.”

Marina, Daniel, Pablo and Lou from France,
Un accueil très sympathique de la part de nos hôtes, le logement correspondait à ce qui était annoncé, un emplacement idéal pour rayonner entre châteaux et vignobles avec des hôtes très à l'écoute. A recommander. Un beau panier garni et de gentilles intentions nos attendaient dans ce gite très coquet et bien aménage, de tomates cerise du jardin, de vélos pour petits et grands et le sourire de nos hôtes. Afin, les enfants ont particulièrement apprécié la piscine qu’il on pratique a toute heur de la journée. Un vrai plaisir partage, voile ce que fut votre gite - on vous en remercie chaleureusement!
Comment from Mike and Jean Brookes
Merci, un vrai plaisir.
Peter from Suid Holland,
In het land der kastelen is de Loirestreek de absolute topper. Wie hier met de fiets op ontdekking gaat kan volop genieten. Wij bewoonden in Les Mortiers het appartement "Poppas". Voorzien van alle gemakken is het zeker geschikt voor twee personen, maar met wat goede wil ook voor 4 personen, Het onderkomen maakt deel uit van een boerderij, waar de eigenaar/eigenaresse zelf al bijna 20 jaar wonen. Men beschikt ook over een heerlijk zwembad. Naast "ons huis" verzamelen zich zo'n 100 mussen, die 's morgens en 's avonds bij elkaar komen om luidruchtig met elkaar te kwetteren. Gezelliger kan haast niet!
Comment from Mike and Jean Brookes
We loved your stay with us and look forward to your return in 2017.
Emily, James, Ben and Patrick from Australia,
We unexpectedly arrived early at Jean & Mike's and were met with a warm welcome regardless. We were absolutely satisfied with our apartment. It was more than we had expected as we had been given an upgrade due to availability, which was very generous.
We stayed in Poppas and we felt completely at home. There was a wonderful welcome basket provided, with wine, local eggs, tea, coffee etc which was filled with more than enough supplies to last for our stay. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and I absolutely loved the beautiful quality of the linen (with top sheet) provided.
Our boys loved the swimming pool and the gardens were a peaceful refuge from long days driving. We will heartily recommend Jean & Mike's and could not fault a thing. They were wonderful hosts who went out of their way to offer advice if we needed it and we are already dreaming of our next escape to France which will include a stay with them. Thank you both for sharing your wonderful property.
Julie and Rex from Weston Super Mare,
Have had two wonderful weeks at Les Mortiers. The weather ha been pretty good, especially for October with some really hot sunny days - so nice to still be able to sit outside. A lovely peaceful setting to chill out - just what we needed. Will miss Misty's regular visits!! We'll be back!!
