A Plan of Le Vieil Atelier - approx. 94 sq metres (1012 sq feet) in total
View of the Salon from the entrance.
The Bedroom - would you care to join us for coffee and a view over the courtyard?
The Salon - with early spring sunshine streaming through the windows.
The Salon with the table laid for Dinner.
The Sofa in bed mode - still plenty of space though.
The large Kitchen - cooking side. This is just half of it.
Turn through 180 degrees and the rest is before you!
In Summer, eat Al Fresco, surrounded by fields , with the Village in the distance.
A comfortable Bed - just right after a busy day.Very comfy. Previous guests tell us they sleep well!
The En-suite - featuring large walk in shower
Adults & children alike enjoying the pool.
The House is completely surrounded by countryside.
Great for relaxing couples. La Fleche Zoo is just 10 minutes away
A dramatic Sunset Sky - from the Courtyard, in September.
Lavoirs (old Washing Houses alongside the rivers) - take our tour one afternoon.
The Genneteil Float at the local Agricultural Show (Comice Agricole) , first week in September.
The River Maine, looking NE from Chateau of Angers, just one of the many places to visit.
Lac de Monneraie - Beach, Nature Walks, Cycling and Watersports Complex, 15 minutes drive away.
The property with Village in the background - away from the hustle and bustle of town life.
Siberia comes to Pays de la Loire - but only for a couple of weeks! The sun still shines in February

“Lovely gîte, all mod cons, quiet and peaceful area.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The property was lovely, the proprietors friendly and very helpful. We went to the area to do some cycling, which was great, as it mostly flat!

“Tranquility”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very welcoming. Very well equipped and comfortable gite. Well situated for 3 market towns and close to both Loire and Loir valleys for wine tasting. Sadly no tabac restaurant or shop in the village anymore but that is not the fault of the owners. We ate out lunch time instead and found eating at home in the evenings was very relaxing with a glass of newly discovered wine!
Eating out was reasonable and on the whole we had very good meals with excellent service

We are very pleased that P & M enjoyed their stay and found the tranquility they were looking for. We agree, it is a great shame about our local bar/restaurant but as with most rural 'ouvrier' restaurants it would only open at lunchtime on weekdays anyway and the bar closes by about 7pm if not earlier. We are still hoping that the restaurant/bar/shop/tabac will come under new ownership in the near future. However, this lack of facilities within walking distance is one reason why we offer a very well equipped kitchen, including fryer and slow cooker and also a good quality BBQ so that people can stay 'at home' and enjoy the evenings (and some of the local 'tipple') !

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are very glad that the new pool was appreciated. We are considering upgrading it to a bigger one for next year! We look forward to seeing M & M again one day.
