“Fabulous !!”
Reviewed 5 December 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I'm writing this whilst sitting outside watching the sun go down on what has been yet another fabulous day. Peter and Sally, we can't thank you enough for the pleasure that we have had and the friendliness that we have received since we arrived here. The gîte is absolutely stunning and we couldn't have wished for a better "home" for our holiday place - peace, quiet and tranquillity in fabulous surroundings whilst having places to explore "just around the corner". We would certainly recommend this to our friends (but not until we have booked our dates first!).

“** Fantastic holiday, can't recommend enough!! **”
Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Myself my husband and two young boys (5 and 2) had a truly wonderful week at this beautiful farmhouse.

The house itself is very spacious and clean inside, with the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on! It was so well equipped with everything you could imagine and more. Outside, the large garden was great to run around in and courtyard and barns was perfect for our boys on their scooters and bikes and cricket games! The enclosed garden was ideal to know our boys were safe.

Local shops, bakeries and cafe restaurants are a few minutes’ drive away and there are plenty of pretty towns to visit. There is also a fantastic lake with a beach and lots of activities just 20 minutes away which our boys loved.

Peter and Sally were the most fantastic of hosts, very welcoming and generous. We were very touched by their hospitality. They even took the effort & cost to return to me my necklace that they found had fallen into a tissue box months after our stay!

I am slightly nervous about submitting this review as would like to keep this gem to ourselves!

“Superb second visit”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

La Goupillere is one the best if not the best Gite we have ever stayed in. It has everything in place for a wonderful stress free stay in a quiet countryside location but only a short drive to the village of Ize. The underfloor heating is ideal for the times we have stayed it is always warm and cosy. Nothing is to much trouble for the owners Peter and Sally who live in the property down the lane but are never intrusive but are always there to help if required. We very much look forward to our next visit.

“EXCELLENT PROPERTY AND LOVELY HOSTS COULDN'T ASK FOR MORE”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have been coming to France for over 20 years now and have stayed in lots of lovely villas, cottages and gites throughout the country. La Goupillere is the best we have ever stayed in. Situated off a quiet country lane not far from the town of Villaines-la-Juhel, La Goupillere has a very large gravelled court yard and several out buildings. The gite itself has been converted to a very high standard with lovely tiled floors which have underfloor heating throughout the downstairs. In late September when the weather is just a little chilly at times the comfort of the slightly warmed tiles on bare feet is a lovely feeling. The kitchen is filled with lovely furniture and very good quality pans, utensils and cutlery. The large lounge has 2 good sized sofas which are very comfortable. There is a TV, DVD player and Freesat which has plenty of UK channels, the TV also has a USB connector if you have all your films on a hard drive. The 3 bedrooms upstairs are all of a good size with very comfortable mattresses and top quality bedding. Outside is a large garden overlooking fields and the countryside. All in all La Goupillere is a cut above the rest set in peaceful countryside. A beautiful, relaxing and convenient property to stay in. The only downside to La Goupillere is having to leave at the end of your stay. Thank you Peter and Sally the wonderful hosts for allowing us to stay in this top quality gite.

“Another Glorious Holiday...”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

Another fantastic holiday here. If we were impressed last time we stayed, it has been even better this time around. The kids have loved all the sports and games gear and we have enjoyed reacquainting ourselves with the peace and quiet of this lovely place. Thanks to Peter and Sally for their usual warm welcome and general friendliness and helpfulness throughout the week. Visits to Le Mans, Mayenne and St Leonard des Bois all highly recommended. Still lots of things we didn't find time to do (mainly due to important relaxation) which may well form the basis of an excuse for a future return visit.
