Fantastic French gite!
An amazing family holiday! Beautiful scenery and property, delicious home cooked food with restaurant quality. Warm friendly hosts top off the stay. Can not wait to return!
Great family stay!
This was a great place with plenty of room for our family (2 parents, 4 children and their Nana)and still room to spare. Not a place of luxury but rather a home from home that families can enjoy being themselves at. We found the place relaxing and enjoyable. The children loved the size of the property to play in, the garden with swings/trampoline, the fruit trees/bushes to munch on and the bikes to ride along the lane.....made it perfect while the adults could enjoy our dinner. Dinner was made for us by our very kind hosts and we were more than pleased.....better than a restaurant......getting a great meal served to you while being able to relax at "home". Also a tasty cake and bottle of wine upon arrival! I would recommend this place to any families travelling the area....easy drive to Mont Saint Michael, fun little amusement park close by and nice waterfall walk. Thank you for our enjoyable holiday.

Nick Chris and Bethan
We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival after a long journey. Very comfortable accommodation for a family of 5, which gave us the space to spread out. The upstairs sitting room was used by the teenagers to watch DVD's whilst we chilled out downstairs with some music.
The owners garden was a real bonus. The swings and trampoline were great fun. Very quiet location, extremely comfortable beds and we all slept very well!
The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The property was clean and tidy and there was a bottle of wine, a freshly baked cake and other items to make us feel at home on arrival.
I am sure we will return, and our children say it is the best holiday they have ever had!
Thank you for your kind review, it is important to us that our guests have an enjoyable holiday, it is what makes our business worthwhile. It was a pleasure to meet you all and hope we can welcome you again in the future.
Fantastic comfortable family gite
We thoroughly enjoy our stay at 'La Mestiere'.
Fantastic gite with all our needs met and more! In particular the DVD collection which kept Lewis amused for hours!! The four of us and Banjo didn't want to leave.
Nick, Chris, Bethan and Milly are brilliant hosts with good knowledge of the area.
thanks very much for your kind review really glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon
Lovely Gite in good location
We enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable and child friendly gite. The gite was well equipped for our needs and the beds were very comfortable! We particularly enjoyed the meal prepared by Chris and Nick that we pre-ordered some weeks previously.
There were lots of things to do locally, Saint Hilaire being just 15 minutes away offered everything you would need with bars, shops, restaurants and market. The children particularly enjoyed outings to the zoo and the beach which were both approximately an hour away.
Chris and Nick were very friendly and helpful and we thank them for making our holiday an enjoyable experience.

Thank you for your kind review and we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay,
Just as good the second time around
We had stayed at this spacious and delightful property in 2009 and did not hesitate to go back. If possible, the stay was even more comfortable. We received complimentary milk, juice and wine and a wonderful freshly baked tea cake on our arrival. The winning points on this property are:
1. The well stocked library of books and DVDs - it had grown hugely since our last stay
2. The dishwasher, full sized fridge and microwave in the kitchen – rare in France
3. The laundry - especially considering the costs of laundrettes
4. The friendly hosts and their abundant veggie patch
5. It is quiet but within easy reach of so much in the area
6. The absolute luxury of a cook’s kitchen in a holiday stay
This property is large yet cosy and provides a proper home away from home for travellers – whether on a long stay or on a week-end break. We recommend it highly – along with the extensive local knowledge the hosts are generous to share.
Thank you for your kind words we were very pleased to welcome you back. We aim to make our guests stay as comfortable as we can.When they return for subsequent visits and leave such positive comments we feel it makes our efforts worthwhile.
Situated close to the Mayenne and Brittany borders it offers an excellent base to explore. Within a 10 minute drive is the market town of St. Hilaire , ample shops, and historic Mortain with its cascade and importance in the Normandy offensive. Both towns have good public pools. A lake based leisure complex outside St Hilaire offers excellent canoeing, kayaking, fishing and walks.
A 45 minute drive takes you to beautiful unspoilt beaches, the magnificent Mont St. Michel, and the medieval town of Fougeres with its historic chateau.
Slightly further afield are Bayeux with its tapestry, the landing beaches, the beautiful walled port of St Malo and Dinan with its ancient houses and fabulous river trips.
Numerous other attractions can be found in the local area eg, an 18 hole golf course at Vire (30 mins) and an excellent zoo at Champreux (40 mins) .
Local restaurants are plentiful and inexpensive and for quieter days the village has all amenities with many local walks
Other Activities: canoeing and kayaking
