We have just got back from a lovely holiday at Les Mothayes. This was our first stay in the Loire valley and we booked it looking for a quiet break in a rural area, not too far from the channel ports and we were really pleased with the find. Les Mothayes is in a tranquil spot but not very far from the good A11/E501 road down from Le Mans. You probably do need a car to make the most of the area with some delightful towns, chateaux and vineyards to visit that are all a short drive away. Without getting into a car, there are plenty of good walks through fields and forest. The roads are very quiet and they too offer good walks.
The gite is well furnished, clean and very comfortable. The outside seating area is a sun trap and enjoys views across the rear garden, ideal for sitting with a book and a drink and al fresco dining.
The owners who live in the adjoining property, Pat and Maureen, were lovely and made us feel very welcome – they were extremely hospitable.More
