"Beyond this magical place, beyond the good taste of the room Center of the Earth... warmth of the family, laughters of the family... the basis of life... the center of the family. Thank you for this wonderful encounter." M.


"A wonderful extended week-end. A guest room just as we like it, with charming keepers. We'll do a good job advertising you up there in the North."


"Oct 1st - we are the first ones to enjoy this beautiful place, refined room, very warm welcome. Thank you... and see you next time."

"Au calme dans un jardin romantique"

Fantastic spot, near Nantes, near the river, near cafés and restaurants, but completely tranquil.  Our room was fabulous, beautfully decorated with images of Jules Verne, and incredibly comfortable, great shower, and doors opening out onto a wonderful walled garden.  The owners are brilliant, quietly interested in you and interesting themselves.  You have the run of the garden, even invited to pick the rasberries, and if you take the little back gate and walk for five minutes down a little track, you are at the river, with all the restaurants, walks, parks, etc etc.  I can't wait to return.  Highly highly recommended.  Go there!

 “Le confort de cette belle maison avec jardin située dans une petite ville sympathique. Un accueil chaleureux des propriétaires et de leur petite famille.  Vertou est relié par un service d'autobus efficace en direction de Nantes donc on laisse notre voiture à l'hôtel et on peut accéder à Nantes rapidement et facilement.”


Attention: à l'heure de retour de Nantes par autobus si vous prenez cette option, à 21h il n'y a plus de service et il est impossible de trouver un taxi. Si vous prévoyez revenir tard, laisser votre voiture au terminus de Place Vertou.


[+]: Es un alojamiento con mucho encanto, muy tranquilo con un bonito y espacioso jardin y muy bien ubicado cerca de Nantes. El desayuno es maravilloso en una zona acristalada muy coqueta. Los propietarios son muy simpáticos y amables. Hablan inglés. Es un lugar al que nos encantaria volver.


[-]: Nada.

“No where better to stay!”

We had a fantastic night at Vingt-Mille Lieux B&B. We were greeted with a smile by Cathy, who offered us a drink after our long day in the car. She and her husband are so lovely and really fantastic hosts. Our room was beautifully decorated with a lovely, comfortable bed and modern en suite. The setting was spectacular! Just a couple mins stroll from the most pretty river. Both Cathy and Jdo went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They even lent us their bikes to take a ride to Nantes (only 7kms and flat the whole way along!). It really is a lovely, quiet spot and we are so glad we chose to stay there and not in Nantes. The breakfast was delicious, fresh croissants and bread, with delicious homemade jams and freshly brewed coffee. Nothing was too much trouble for them! Vertou itself is fantastic, situated on a lazy meandering river, surrounded by cool shady forrest, its the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday! We had a delicious dinner at a local place which was so fantastically tasty. You cannot go through this part of the whole and not stay here. Its all class.

Autralia and Malaysia!

We had the most comfortable stay in your fantastic B&B. Thank you so much for your generosity and hospitality - it was a special stay and we are very sad to be leaving! We will be back for sure and tell all our friends. Thank you so much.

“The secret garden”

Yes, the literary reference is to Jules Verne,who was born here, and when you sit in your wonderful room you can easily dream to be inside the Nautilus, or in the study of Professor Otto Lidenbrok or at the Reform Club with Phileas Fogg. But the first feeling, once you cross the little door and suddenly discover the beautiful secret garden inside, with its flowers in bloom and its trees and lawns and roses on your doorstep, is Frances Hodgson Burnett. This is the place to stay when you are in Nantes: A great place run by great people, who chose this strange beautiful house in the lovely village of Vertou, decorated it with great fantasy taste and love and opened it to people, making them feel welcome and pampered. Fantastic breakfast in the glasshouse, with hot bread and croissants and cakes, homemade jams and a selection of honeys. And a short walk along a country dirt road will take you to the idyllic riverside, on the Sevre, where you'll find a couple of fine restaurants.

Absolutely recommended!

Visitors from Rome!

A real discovery ! We have loved to stay here but regret the short time... Luckily you've given us at least 3 good reasons to come back !!


PS: and come to Rome !!

Nice alternative to the closed campsite. Now we have prepared all the things for the rest of the trip. We're cycling from Nantes to Marseille. About 1100 km. Follow our trip on www.facebook.com/cycleguide or register on www.cycleguide.de (in German).


Thank you for your warm welcome !
