Owner from Noyant La Plaine, France


Maïa, a former tourguide and her husband Frédéric have escaped from a more hectic life in Paris to the peaceful Loire countryside. They are experts at looking after you and they are just next door, discreets but always on hand if you need them.

Family from Grenoble, France · April 2019
We had a wonderful stay for four days in early April at "Le Manoir des Rosiers". It is definitely a great place with delightful facilities. We enjoyed our four nights at "La Maison ", a large and very pleasant gîte with nice antique pieces of furniture. Maia and Frederic have been always on hand and very pleased to advise us about the wonderful surroundings in the Loire valley, many historical places to visit in the area, cultural events and, of course, local wine and typical food (Don't miss "fouées" and "rillauds"). On top of that, we had four sunny days. We only regret we did not stay longer. The place is worth at least a full week and we shall come again !

We rarely return to the same place twice but we loved La Maison the first time we stayed and still had things we wanted to do in the area so decided to return. Maia and Frederic were very welcoming and helpful when we need information or suggestions on places to eat. The house is comfortable and well equipped and the cinema room a bonus. The pool area was a great place to relax or take a dip to cool off particularly as the weather was hot. The beautiful setting and secluded grounds are ideal for getting away from it all but there are plenty of things to do nearby. We would not hesitate to recommend La Maision and are sure we will return again in the future.

Le Petit Pavillon was a beautiful holiday retreat and perfect for a relaxing week away. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly, recommending places to visit and places to eat as well as answering any questions we had. The property itself was beautifully decorated and clean with everything we wanted for the week we were there, the home cinema and hot tub were brilliant extras! The only slight downfall was that there weren't any shops or restaurants within a short walk away but that also meant it had the upside of being very peaceful and had everything you needed to cook food at the property. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The administrative processes of booking, paying and communicating with yourselves and our hosts were straightforward and trouble free. Our journey via London City Airport and Angers to the Manoir was also pleasant and without incident. We knew something of the accommodation prior to our visit, as our daughter and family have stayed here for a number of years and can't stop talking about it. The village itself is peaceful and a delight. Then we arrived at the Manoir, tucked into an even quieter corner and were enchanted by the beautiful setting and extensive grounds. The Pavilion was a surprise in its construction, with its open ground floor, mezzanine sleeping area and its traditional farm house atmosphere. We spent a relaxing and enjoyable time there in France and wish to thank our congenial hosts, Maia and Frederic, for their warm welcome and hospitality.

We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful gite. Set in a peaceful village this is truly a retreat from the rest of the world - just close the gates and enjoy the superb pool, jacuzzi and cinema room. The house is rustic but comfortable and well equipped for a family of 4. The owners were very welcoming and happy to give advice if requested and spoke excellent English. If you venture out there is plenty to do in the area with Saumur not far away and a whole range of activities and amazing chateaux, wine tasting, cycling and beautiful scenery to keep you amused for a week or two. There are a couple of supermarkets near by and a boulangerie in the next village. We would certainly return to this area and this gite as it was a real hit with us all.

We returned to this gite as our stay the previous year was so fabulous. It did not disappoint this year; we has an equally wonderful week in a fabulous part of the country. Our hosts were delightful and could not do enough to enhance our stay. The accommodation was perfect. We will certainly return!

Maïa and Frédéric were the loveliest of hosts who went out of their way to help with wifi, restaurant booking etc. They made us extremely welcome so we felt at home as soon as we arrived. The property and grounds are exceptional with beautiful gardens and a fantastic pool. The pool and the lovely outside area for eating made us reluctant to drag ourselves away to the many chateaux near by!

This is a delightful place to stay and the owners are very charming. However, there is an adjoining property the pool is shared, not private.
