Customer Reviews

My husband and I, and our pets, spent 6 months at the La Baudonniere. It was a wonderful experience. The tranquil setting was ideal for me to finish my novel and since it was my first, the Courtyard Cottage will always have a special meaning. Comfortable, perfectly equipped, the cottage is ideally located for long walks with the dogs or discovering the Pays de la Loire. We never dreaded driving far for sightseeing, because we knew we had a cozy place and a warm fire to return to. But more than anything, what made our time here so memorable, was getting to know the Bannigans. They are a fun, warm and loving family. Both the manor and its guests are in good hands. And may I say that Eleanor’s Irish Coffees are wicked!
