We Welcome You                                            Loire Atlantique location offers you a great opportunity of having a fantastic holiday with a huge diversity of places to visit.   As our gites are on the borders of Morbihan, Ile-et-Vilaine, Mayenne and Maine-et-Loire the choices are endless.  In under an hour’s drive, you can be in Rennes’ half timbered medieval heart, mesmerised by Nantes’ wonderful mechanical elephant and other Jules Vernesque creatures in their amazing new carousel,  lazing on the golden sands of Pornichet and La baule, sampling the wines of the muscadet vineyards around Ancenis and Nantes and much much more….  Of course you could also just chill out on your own private patio, listening to the birdsong, sipping wine and savouring wonderfully fresh, crusty bread with lashings of delicious locally made butter and a delectable cheese or two.   Learn more about our location by clicking on the ‘area’  button and you can explore through our many links and also  our ‘blog’ to read about local events we’ve gone to and our lives here in France.   All our accommodation is non-smoking and your pooch can enjoy a holiday with you at LabourofLove Gites by agreement. We look forward to seeing you in our gites Loire Atlantique!

Wishing you and all your nearest and dearest the very best Christmas and New Year with all you could wish for in 2014.


After a wonderful 2013 season with around 75% of our guests being returners   I am minimising my advertising and concentrating on the website and face book page as well as the best publicity tool of all – word of mouth.     In light of this,  I am not only keeping 2013 prices for 2014 but offering a 5% discount to all returning guests and any guests who have had a recommendation from them.    The website availability calendar is completely up to date and is immediately updated with each confirmed booking but unfortunately it doesn’t have the function for noting provisional bookings so an e-mail to me will reveal all.    

I do hope we will be able to welcome you back soon .

  Loire Atlantique self catering gites: full of charm, character, and comfort – our labour of love for you to enjoy.  Nestling in the tranquil Don valley but only minutes from Guemene Penfao and all its aminities, they provide you with the best of both worlds.
