    As posted on AIRB&B reviews: “This was a fantastic stay for me and my family. Teresa and Ian had thought of everything we might need from beach toys to mosquito repellent. The gites itself was large and comfortable, the garden was amazing, we could have stayed there and not ventured out. We took up Teresa’s recommendations of a lake with a beach 5-10 minutes away and the Wednesday market at Vannes which were ace. We felt pampered and well-cared for and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.”

    From our guestbook:
    “We stayed from the 4th to 19th July 2013 and Le camelia was the perfect location for our long awaited long holiday. We enjoyed exploring the area around Guéméne Penfao: walks along the river, the lake at Plessé and we loved the coast at Le Croisic and Pornichet. The elephant at Nantes was great fun and La Gacilly and Vannes were pretty towns to discover. But most of all we’ve enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful garden here at Les Quatre Cles. The atmosphere was particularly calming and a great escape from London life. Henry (13 months) has enjoyed his first trip abroad and especially liked the toy digger in the garden and the play house – and Munchkin the cat.
    Thank you Teresa & Ian, for making this such a special place, for your friendly welcome and for answering all our needs.
    Gemma, Charlie and Henry”

    I would first of all like to thank Labour of Love Gites for providing us with one of the most relaxing holidays we could have had even with two small young children. We stayed at Le Glycine. Teresa and Ian catered for all our needs and all we had to bring was a pushchair. Ideal, when travelling down from Scotland.

    Maria (2yrs) and Annie (8 months) loved the beautiful garden which was very well equipped for kids. Maria really enjoyed the wonderful playhouse and the swings. Annie was a big fan of the paddling pool.

    The area is full of interest and the town of Guemene Penfao itself is well equipped for all needs. We did as little as possible but couldn’t resist a trip to Vannes and the superb beach at Pornichet.

    We will certainly be back. Thanks again Teresa and Ian for a wonderfully relaxing stay!

    The Godfrey’s – Sheffield England – 20th July – 27th July 2013

    “We arrived at the Labour of Love Gites on the 20th July 2013. The information received prior to our visit from Teresa ensured a very pleasant and easy journey from the tunnel. On arrival we were met with such a picturesque property . The garden was amazing and the hosts could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
    The Gite was equip with all the basic needs anyone would need (Teresa) had thought and prepared for all needs. Feeling at home and immediately relaxed continued throughout the whole week due to the fantastic accommodation and immediate environment, For anyone not wanting to travel but to enjoy the sunshine and relax in the huge garden full of wonderful shrubs and wild flowers you could not have been in a better place.
    The Gites are in an ideal place and would appeal to all age ranges from very young children older persons, families and couples (again the garden and provisions for kids – AMAZING )! As well as the oracle of information of the area Teresa has to share.

    Its not often you can say you will return to the same place but ………….. We will definitely be back !!!”

All we can say is that yours must be the best getes in Loire Atlantique 100% full marks
