Fantastic hosts, loved the fresh homemade jam, walnuts, apples from the trees, garden herbs and homemade apple juice. The log fire was warm and the accommodation was lovely. Jim is a very calm and happy host. It has been a highlight of our travels across France.

My friend and I and our two babies 8wks and 15mnths stayed here for a few nights on our way south to a wedding The gite was exactly as described and more. - in fact the pictures don't do it justice. It was wonderful and our hosts were so incredibly welcoming. They even unpacked our fully loaded car. There was a bbq which we enjoyed in the peaceful garden. The hosts were kind enough to put out lots of extra toys and things for the babies ( baby bath / high chair etc) and were just next door incase we needed anything. There was even a buzzer - which we didn't need to use as everything was there. Even a stack of games and DVDs if that's your thing. The welcome basket was a nice touch too 5***** could easily charge more

We enjoyed 4 great days at le Petite Grange in late September. Jim and Ophelie have created a beautiful and cosy gite which sits in glorious surroundings and are brilliant hosts - friendly, relaxed and accommodating. We were lucky enough to have some wonderful early autumn sunshine throughout our stay, so we spent most of our time in the garden where our 3 and 1 year olds had a ball running around and meeting the animals in the adjoining paddock. The gite has only been open since June and Jim and Ophelie could already teach a lot of other holiday home owners a thing or two about the best way to welcome and accommodate guests. We would like to return one day.

La Petite Grange is a beautifull, very complete equiped and newly deccorated cottage in green surroundings. We fell in love with the gite on first sight. On arrival a warm welcome was given by the owners Jim and Ophelie. During our stay they made us realy feel at home. On warm sunny days it's a pleasure to lounge in the large garden in the shadow of an appletree with a fine glass of the provided home made wine. The gite is situated in a quiet countryside area with lots of opportunities for daytrips in the region and the nice litte village La Chatre sur le Loir within biking distance of the gite. La Petite Grange is an absolute recommondation for people who appreciate to relax in a comfortably gite in the authentic French countryside.

Excellent séjour dans un cadre plein de charme, une très jolie maison, très propre et parfaitement bien équipée. Surtout, on a été impressionés par l'accueil chaleureux des nos hôtes. Un grand plus pour les petites attentions. On n'hésitera pas de révenir.

Un gîte charmant très bien conçu. De nombreuses petites attention à l'arrivée qui ont été très appréciées (confiture maison, oeufs frais, le feu dans la cheminée qui nous attendait...) Nous recommandons vivement ce logement pour les amoureux de la nature.

Jim's a Brit, Ophélie is French and their two daughters are definitely franglais.

We have been living in France together for 10 years and whilst Ophélie works in Le Mans, Jim works from home so will always be availability if any help is ever required in the next-door gite.
