Here's a sample of some of the comments our guests have left at "le Vieux Logis" since we opened our doors in June 2007.
We had the warmest welcome we possibly hoped for & the friendliness continued for the full two weeks. A lovely gite & lovely people.
Pete & Dea - UK September 2012
Where to start when the previous sentiments expressed sum up the welcome & the warmth that Julie & Keith extend to their guests. We enjoyed our last day meal & wish we had booked in during the week. We will move on & travel home with happy memories of our time spent in this gite. Our warmest regards to Julie & Keith.

A really restful 3 weeks here. Very well equipped gite. Lots to do and see. Best of all our lovely hosts - Keith & Julie, you could;nt want to meet two nicer people. We've thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Roger & Lois - August 2012
We are very sad to leave our idyllic French rural "bubble" and head back to urban Essex ! Not only because we have had a wonderful, relaxed time but it's a testement to how welcoming Keith & Julie have been. We can feel suitibly proud that not only did our internet search earlier this year serve us a perfect gite for our summer holiday but the kind of hosts you remember for a life time. Thankyou for everything.
Simon, Helen & family - UK August 2012
What a beautiful place and what a welcome ! This was our first attempt at a holiday as a family of four and nothing was too much trouble to make us all fell at home. The children loved the games in the garden, not to mention the fruit, vegetables and chickens which kept them out from under our feet. We will definitely be back next time we want a stress free break. Thankyou so much.
UK - July 2012
For the fourth time, we visited "The Old farmhouse". Everytime is like coming home. Thankyou again Julie & Keith for your warm welcome and the feeling you give us that we are happy here. We enjoyed the lovely "marmelade" of Keith and made some jam as well. Our bikes brought us more than 500km in the beautiful villages around Montreuil Bellay. When we get home we have souvenirs from the vide greniers. Keith & Julie we wish you all the best and hopefully for us there will be a fifth visit for us in your gite. Many thanks.
Peter & Jannie - HOLLAND- Sept 2011.
We've had a great week here in your lovely property. The location, facilities and you, as hosts have been wonderful. The kids have particulaly enjoyed the pool, the garden, the chickens and following you around (talking incessantly) There is so much to do in the area, who knows, we may reutrn. Many thanks.
Andy, Liz, Harry & Daisy Ballemy - UK - Aug 2011
Thankyou very much for all your hospitality. We had a wonderful holiday in your gite. Thankyou for all the eggs and homemade jam and the other things from the garden. The gite is very good. The children loved the swimming pool, table tennis etc., We are relaxed and not so happy to go home. In 2012 we come back.
Alex, Rieke, Rianne, Turan - Holland - AUG 2011
Another lovely holiday here at Le Vieux Logis (3rd time). Julie & Keith excell their selves every time we come, they are so helpful & welcoming. We will see you soon.
Jean, Peter, Jenifer & Trevor - UK - June 2011
Our third time here, wonderful. Thankyou once again Julie & Keith for your welcome and all you have done for us. We love it here and we will be back yet again.
Jill & Adrian UK - APRIL 2011
Twas good to be back again - just like coming home. So many thanks for your hospitality, friendship and generousity. You've not seen the last of us yet.
Chris & Alan - UK - OCTOBER 2010
Thankyou so much Julie & Keith for making us feel so welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend your "gite" highly. The gite was so relaxing to stay in and it really felt like a home away from home. We will definately stay again. All the best and hope to see you again.
Jo & Michael - Australia - Sept 2010
We thank you for your great hospitality to us, but mainly to our both kids. Lisa loved to do the garden and Guido liked to basketball. We liked the old farm house, it was nice decorated. We loved the garden with all the games in it and the swimming pool. It was so nice and quiet late at night. Thank you for the cherry jam and the eggs. Guido and Lisa do now know where they can find the potatoes!! We surely recommend your gite and the B&B to our friends and family. And maybe within a year or three we will return to you to stay for another week. You will see our young lady Lisa and our big boy Guido again. Thank you very much!!! With kind regards, Anton, Jacqueline, Guido and Lisa
Anton, Jacqueline, Guido & Lisa- HOLLAND - JULY 10
All Julie & Keith's hard work has paid off. We have had a lovely stay here, upon our arrival we were met by Julie & Keith - who were very welcoming. The gite was comfortable and very relaxing. It is well equipped with everything you could think of. We appreciated Julie & Keith's knowledge of the local area and their friendly nature, this made our stay more enjoyable. We had a great family holiday !!
Clair, Phil & children - UK - OCTOBER 2009
A lovely and tranquil setting at the "Le Vieux Logis". Julie & Keith have a wonderful property here and their welcome has been very ospitable and friendly. It was lovely to visit the region again after 15 years and enjoy the beauty of the region. The weather has been fantastic. Thankyou again and we shall be recommending you to our friends.
Chris & Andy - UK - SEPT 2009
We have had a very relaxing week in your lovely gite. My only complaint is that we are now being pestered to build a chicken coop in our not so large garden!! We have kept fit with the badmington, bikes & swingball and now need to go home for a rest. Having someone with local knowledge living next door has been a great bonus. We would not hesitate in recommending the gite to anyone. Hope to see you again one day.
Steve, Ruth, Madeleine & Olivia - UK- AUGUST 2009
Our second visit. A pleasure to return to this special place. The gite was lovely and clean & fresh. Many thanks to Keith & Julie for all their freindly, thoughtful help. Lots of lovely local bike rides. Hopefully we will return.
Krissie & George - SCOTLAND - JULY 2009
A most enjoyable two weeks, thankyou for providing perfect weather for our cycling journeys. We explored both the Loire and Le Thouet and found delightful & interesting spots everywhere. Your help in making our stay so special was much appreciated, thankyou to the chickens for their contribution and your abundant garden. We will certainly receommend your well equipped and spacious "farmhouse".
Ruth, Colum, Chris & Andrew -AUSTRALIA - JUNE 2009
We had such a relaxing stay with you both. You welcomed us with open arms and made our stay truely relaxing. During our stay you thought of every possible detail. You were also very generous and we loved the jam. If you are ever in Sydney, we would love to hear from you.
Craig, Kate & Children - AUSTRALIA - SEPT 2008
It's been a pleasure staying in your house. It's the best house we've been in. The terrace, the garden, the chickens and their eggs, the lovely fresh produce all make this a very special place. We'll recommend to all our freinds. You've been wonderful hosts to us and very good company.
Jos & Henriette - HOLLAND - AUG 2008
Thankyou both so much for the lovely warm welcome on our arrival which then continued during our stay. The gite has been extremely comfortable, has excellent facilities throughout, with many happy times spent in your lovely garden. A big thankyou for all the produce from your garden, plus the fresh eggs from the chickens who become our little freinds. Many thanks for everything you done for us during our stay.
Chris, Roger, Diane & Doug - UK & Wales - JUNE 08
This has been our most enjoyable and comfortable gite experience - and we've been doing France in this way for over 20 years. The location is perfect, the accommodation comfortable and adequately equipped. Most importantly, we have valued having friendly & knowledgeable landlords to hand ! Thankyou both very much
Ratan & Noyona - UK- sept 2007
We loved our stay here in your beautiful gite ! We immediately felt like home with your warm welcome when we arrived. It's easy to relax with all of the things you've supplied us with, including the bikes. Thanks for all your ideas for having a good time. You two make a great warm couple.
Alinda & Michael - HOLLAND - AUG 2007
Thankyou for your kind hospitality and providing us with a cosy yet large homely atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and you'll probably see us again one day.
