Le-Mont-Saint-Michel House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-12)
Our house is great for families with children or several couples travelling together. We also like dogs so feel free to bring your own well-behaved family pet.
We have owned our lovely French home for 6 years and use it as much as is possible so it contains many personal touches. It has been comfortably renovated, but remains very French, and has a wonderful old world charm.
Situated on the Rue de l’Eglise in the very heart of the charming Breton village of Bazouges La Perouse which was recently awarded the title of 'Petite Cité de Caractere' and is also considered a ‘Village des Artistes’ with numerous galleries to visit as well as 5 different bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance of the house. In the village there is also a bank, post office, small supermarket, bakery and a butcher shop and there is a small farmers market every Thursday morning. Best of all for visitors is the local Boulangerie which is just a 2 minute stroll every morning to go and get your pain au chocolate or croissant, perhaps stopping off at one of the cafe's on the way back home for a quick coffee.. Bliss!
The property itself is a large town house/cottage. The ground floor is a big and social open plan which incorporates a fully fitted kitchen with all modern conveniences, a huge rustic dining table to seat up to 12 easily, a WC, and a comfortable sitting area with TV (British Cable TV channels), DVD, VHS, cd player etc, as well as a selection of games, films, books and music to suit most tastes. We don’t strip the place when we leave as it is our home away from home and are confident and happy that our visitors will treat it in the same way.
On the 2nd floor there are three large double bedrooms and a family bathroom(tub, toilet and sink). The top floor is a huge room/loft/family room with more beds if you need them as well as a pool table, dart board, table football etc. Outside there are two sun-decks so as to take advantage of the sun in the morning as well as the afternoon, and a nice and private back garden with lawn for the children. A solid built barbecue and plenty of tables and chairs make outdoors entertaining a pleasure.
The surrounding area around Bazouges has much to offer the visitor. A short drive away is the beautiful, historic yet cosmopolitan university city of Rennes, (try the Saturday fresh produce market at Place de les Lices – an amazing French experience); the walled coastal town of St. Malo with its hundreds of tiny streets lined with top fashion shops and restaurants and street entertainers in the summer; the working abbey of Mont-St-Michel built at the end of a tiny causeway in the Atlantic ocean which is France’s most visited landmark after the Eiffel Tower; the seaside towns of Le Vivier-sur-Mer (producer of much of France’s mussels for consumption) and Cancale, the renowned oyster producing town whose sea-front is lined with high quality restaurants to sit in for hours and sample the finest and freshest sea food in the country. There are also many many beautiful, unspoiled sandy beaches to spend the day.
Bazouges La Perouse is also just on the edge of the Brittany/Normandy border, making a trip to the D-Day landing beaches of Omaha, Gold and Juno easy to do and impossible to miss, or forget. There is also the port town of Dinan; the countless beaches of the Brittany and Normandy coast; Combourg; the forest of Villecartier with its aerial rope course for very brave adults and children from 6 years old, and other places too numerous to mention - but lots of information is available in the house for visitors and at the Office of Tourism which is just a couple of blocks away...
I can’t say enough about the beauties of this area, and our lovely French village. I know you'll have the best holiday here!

The Owner purchased this house in 2002
Why The Owner chose Le-Mont-Saint-Michel
We live in the Channel Islands, just off the coast of France, and so Brittany is an ideal location for us, and we simply fell in love with the village of Bazouges La Perouse. When you see it you'll see why.
What makes this house unique
There is plenty to do and see, as listed above, places to visit, towns to shop in, restaurants to eat in. It is central to so much, but equally great just to stay put.
