“Friendly,gracious,fun Le Mans experience”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our host was not only an experienced, thoughtful owner but also was very helpful with details including before and during hints/explanations.
Great facilities..Knowledgable car guy like us.
Steve made our stay an 'above and beyond' 24 Hours of Le Mans stay.
He is a true car guy who drove the circuit in his R8 on Thursday before the race..
Looking forward to our next visit!

“A wonderful place in a lovely location”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The place is lovely, Steve (the owner) made sure we were as comfortable as if it was our own home.
The tranquility and beautiful views are a bonus and do compliment the gorgeous house.
Thank you for making our stay a memorable and wonderful one. No doubt we will see you soon again !

Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A fantastic location to stay, with beautiful surroundings of the French countryside, close to amenities and lots to explore in the area. The high quality fit out of the property has been recently refurbished at great expense and is outstanding and extremely comfortable. The property benefits from many buildings with on suite bedrooms, including self catering features (if required). it is set in beautiful rolling 25 acres of its owned land, which includes a lake and its own swimming pool! The owner, Steve, is a very rare breed of kindness and fantastic hospitality
Utterly stunning and I would return again. Highly recommend.

“A pristine barn conversion in a tranquil rural setting”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

‘Les Haises’ has three good bedrooms, a nice bathroom and a spacious kitchen. There is a living room with a TV/ DVD player which is also very pleasant (if a little more formal than cosy). Everything is spotless and seems virtually brand new. Steve the (English) owner lives opposite in a 'picture postcard' cottage which has an annexe comprising a bedroom (massive four poster bed) and bathroom. Steve is a really friendly and interesting guy who goes out of his way to make his guests feel comfortable and at home. He was keen to be discrete and unobtrusive, but we persuaded him to share (quite) a few bottles of wine with us. He kindly let my wife and I use the annexe leaving the main gite to our eighteen year old daughter and her two friends to party the nights away.
We had unbelievable weather for the whole of our stay so the fantastic private swimming pool and the barbeque became the focal points of our lazy days. Steve had just recently purchased a full size table tennis table which we also made good use of. Right next to the accommodation is a pond, surrounded by trees and full of fish (that will take bread from your hand) where we would sit under the trees and read. Our dog loved the space and the shady spots around the pond. She wandered around independently, dipped in the pond to cool off (and chase ducks) and holidayed free of charge…. which is unusual in our experience.

The local village of Coulans-Sur-Gee is an easy bike ride or a 25 minute walk along quiet lanes. It has a boulangerie, butcher / shop, bar tabac, post office and lunchtime restaurant, but is a very sleepy spot. Le Mans (twinned with Bolton!?! ) is only a 15 minute drive away.
It's not the most exciting French city you'll ever visit but has all the amenities you'd expect of a provincial city and the bonus of a well preserved medieval quarter with a number of restaurants. The village of Loue (same distance in the opposite direction) is a pretty place and has a supermarket, bank, bars and restaurants (if not the wide choice offered by Le Mans). A twenty five minute drive north is Sille Plage, a pleasant, man-made beach on a large, warm lake with boats and bikes to hire and bars and eateries.
Les Haises is perfectly placed for visiting the Le Mans 24hr race if you book it early enough (probably years early) and is also on the northern edge of the Loire Valley…. but not in the midst of it so it’s a bit of a drive to the tourist honeypots. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, unless you particularly want to visit the premier league chateaux or you like crowds, and there are plenty of local tourist attractions we’d have sought out if the weather hadn’t been so hot.

Deb,Den and Sophie and the girls !! and Lucky too.Thank you so much for your review.I am pleased that your stay was a pleasant one and you enjoyed the tranquility of Les Haies. My project this winter is to convert the remaining rooms into a large sitting room,additional bathroom and another double bedroom to be able to receive larger groups and make the stay even more comfortable for my guests, I have finally got the Wi Fi sorted in the cottage and even English TV !!
The addition of the Donkeys has made quite an impact especially for the family groups and i will continue to develop the House based on guest feedback. Your company as a family was very much appreciated and I have been very privileged to meet such genuine friends,the memories of your stay and "your hospitality" makes the hard work very much worthwhile ( and the wine was also very enjoyable )
Your review will help others to make decisions on Les Haies with your broad advice on the area and my home and i genuinely hope you will return at some point in the future to allow me to meet you again. Your family really did bring so much joy thank you Steve
