“This is a lovely property and particularly good for either sitting out overlooking the fields or from within the conservatory. All very well equipped - access to cold boxes, bikes, beach stuff very useful- and very good communications with hosts. We were a bit concerned about staying in a house without air conditioning during the heatwave but thick walls and traditional shutters kept the house cool down during the day. My wife's only complaint was that it did not have a swimming pool.! This is a great place for those who enjoy the unspoiled glories of rural France.”
Lydie's reviewsAs a host (12)
“We had a fabulous time at Lydie’s house. The area was exceptionally beautiful and the house so well positioned to visit beautful French villages and countryside. Everything about our visit was perfect and Lydie was a wonderful hostess. I had thought that I’d already left my thank you on Homeswap Lydie so apologies if the first review wasn’t posted. Thank you again. Denise and Jeff ”
“We have just completed a swap with Lydie and her family. What a great experience. The house was very comfortable and located in an idyllic area of France. It provided everything we were looking for. Great walks. Nice restaurants. Great day trips out. And a lovely comfortable house to come home to. Communication with Lydie was good from start to finish, she was very friendly and helpful and left us loads of local information which was really useful, The swap exceeded our expectations and we are hoping to come back again if Lydie and her family are agreeable. Thank you Lydie for a very enjoyable and successful exchange. Best wishes Denise and Jeff ”
“Lydie and her husband were really great hosts and very helpful during our stay. They gave us a lot of useful information about the surroundings and places to visit. They were also great guests at our house. We had a wonderful time in their beautiful house. The house was very well located to visit Nantes and its surroundings, and it was a complete paradise for the kids full of toys. Sucé-sur-Erdre is a lovely village full of charm. We really enjoyed our stay there and it was an authentic pleasure to be in their house with their two lovely cats. Thanks for everything!”
“Lydie and Laurent their hospitality was great! We had a very good time in this beautifull, cosy and well decorated house. The views over the fields outside were amazing. Real French. The playground around the house was great for our daughter, 8 years old. She loved all the toys. Everything you needed could be found in one of the shops within 6 km of the the house. You need a car here. In half an hour drive you find nice places along the cost. Nantes is only 15 min drive and is worth visiting.”
“It was great staying at Lydia's home. It's an old farm house, very well renovated and decorated. It has lots of light, a very nice veranda and beautiful garden perfect for kids. Lydia was a great host, always very friendly and she made sure that we felt at home. ”
“Nous avons beaucoup aimé l'échange que nous avons fait avec Lydie et sa famille. Les discussions que nous avons eu en amont et pendant le séjour était très agréables et nous nous sommes sentis vraiment bien accueillis. La maison est à la fois spacieuse et chaleureuse. On s'y sent tout de suite bien. La maison est très bien équipée (mention spéciale pour la literie et le babyfoot !). Il y a aussi deux chats sur place, dociles et affectueux. Malgré le temps très froid dehors (-3° au petit matin), nous avons profité de la nature environnante (balade en vélo, course dans la campagne) et du jardin (les enfants ont adoré la tyrolienne). Le quartier est tellement calme, c'est un bonheur lorsqu'on arrive de la ville ! Par ailleurs, Sucé sur Erdre est un bourg agréable au bord de la rivière (jolis marché et port, super boulangerie !) à quelques kilomètres de Nantes, facilement accessible. ”
“Lydie was very helpfull from the very beginning, communication was perfect before and during our stay. Their charming house was about 20 min from Nantes, in the very lovely Sucé sur Edre, a most picturesque small french town by a river that can be explored by canoing or electric boa (very recommended). Located in the middle of cow pastures, with a large garden and play-area, our children had a great time playing and running around. We enjoyed very much having dinner outside, where you can enjoy a BBQ in a very comfortable outside table. Very quiet and tranquile during the nights, resting was easy, which we truly enjoyed. The inside of the house was spacious and comfortable, with a newly renovated and enlarged kitchen. Bedrooms upstairs, perfect for a couple with 2 kids such us (toys and more toys, that children always appreciate so much). Only tall people need to look out for the beautifull wooden beams, that can be a hazard when walking at night if you are not used to :-)”
“We stay at Lydie´s beautiful country house at the end of July. The house is immaculate, wonderfully decorated and excellent to enjoy the surroundings. The perfect place to relax and also to visit to Nantes (another big surprise for us-modern, attractive, sustainable city). We had a great communication with her at all times. Thanks so much, Lydie!!!!”
“We had a lovely stay at Lydie's beautiful home. It is in a stunning countryside location with a big back garden (super for the kids) complete with a flying fox! We were able to look out of the window at fields of cows, and completely escape. Nante was just a short drive away, and it was a great location for sight seeing. A beautiful home rich with interesting objects from Lydie's antique hunting. Lydie was wonderful to deal with from the very beginning. And we returned to a well cared for home and were super happy. A super swap. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!”
“We stayed at Lydie's beautiful home for a week in July. It was our first points swap and Lydie's too! We felt very welcome and comfortable. The house was immaculate and very stylishly decorated. The children loved the garden with its zip-wire, trampoline and playhouse. Isis the cat was a huge hit too (the loveliest, friendliest cat we've ever met!!). The house is in a very quiet rural location near some nice towns and villages. The city of Nantes is very nice and a little quirky!! We adored and will never forget Les Machines de l'île (www.lesmachines-nantes.fr). Guérande is another beautiful town with lovely seaside spots nearby. So many lovely places to visit by car. We really recommend this lovely home in a lovely part of France. Simon, Sarah & Family”
“La maison est particulièrement agréable et confortable avec tout ce qu'il faut pour les enfants, un vrai bonheur ! Échanges aussi très sympathiques avec les propriétaires. Rien à redire, à découvrir absolument !”
