LE PLESSIX GITE

  • 5 of 5
What a superb place to find. The gite was perfect even better than described. There are all mod-cons but none of the character has been lost. It was clean, well maintained and there were some lovely little extras. There is a full sized table tennis table and a large trampoline. The gardens are superb as is the equipment provided. Sun loungers tables chairs and a huge barbecue. This garden is huge and private with no one to overlook it.
There are supermarkets within easy reach and a boulangerie in the village of Plumauden together with a pharmacy a general store and a bar. Within easy reach there is the Mediaeval city of Dinan and also Le Mont St Michel together with wonderful beaches close by.
On our arrival we were welcomed with lots of goodies. These were wine, butter, jam, bread and super home grown ( by the owners ) crispy lettuce. The owners Steve and Janine are lovely people and anything you asked for was dealt with straight away.
Mid week we were given more lovely lettuce and a wonderful dessert which I must have the recipe for.
I would recommend this gite to anyone including my family. To finish I would like to say go on do yourself a favour book a couple of weeks. I will endeavour to do so.Thank you Steve and Janine for a lovely week.

RELAX IN THIS BEAUTIFUL GITE.

  • 5 of 5
We had the most relaxing time in this pretty, compact gite. It has everything that you could wish for, from the warm welcome from the owners complete with local bread, wine, butter, jam, and home-grown organic vegetables to a fully-equipped kitchen, washing machine, comfortable beds, and satellite TV (which our 9 year-old son appreciated). We enjoyed exploring the beautiful and immaculate surrounding villages on foot (we brought a scooter for our son), and in the car. Dinan is only about 15 minutes away by car and is worth several visits. We also saw Mont Saint Michael (2h away), and spent time in Rennes (1h). Our hosts, who live next door, were gracious and very helpful when we needed them, but were completely unobtrusive. Do be aware that local stores are not open all day every day (as Californians, we had to adjust!), although there is a supermarche in a nearby village that has everything you could want, and it is absolutely worth walking to the local patisserie every morning for fresh baguettes and pains chocolats. This is a stunning part of France, the local people were very friendly, and if you want to get away from the everyday hustle of busy life this is definitely the place for you.

QUAINT AND PEACEFUL GITE

  • 5 of 5
A lovely little gite, beautifully restored, perfectly clean and very well equipped.
Upon our arrival after a long drive the local bread, jam and chilled wine in the fridge were very welcome. We made good use of the boules and racquets (the garden makes a perfect size court) and we loved splashing in the swimming pool in the late afternoon sun. The owners, Janine and Steve are very friendly and helpful yet discreet, our two boys aged 6 and 7 loved using the bodyboards kindly loaned to us. W
The gite is in a good central position with 20 mins (15 mins with children on scooters) walk to the local village for delicious fresh bread for breakfast.
Its a short drive to the beautiful walled town of Dinan, with lovely walks, restaurants and galleries. We recommend a coastal walk around Cap Frehel and lazy days on the quiet sandy beaches around Saint Lunaire perfect for swimming and boarding with children.
The area is great for cycling and the quiet country lanes make it safe for children.
The gite made a perfect base for a lovely family holiday and I would happily recommend to friends or relatives.

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
A very quaint, clean & well equipped gite and the pool is a terrific bonus. The owners were extremely helpful, and informative. The location was perfect for us, we enjoyed long walks and it was just a short drive into the beautiful walled town of Dinan. Our only complaint......our stay wasn't long enough - we would definitely stay longer next time. Note - thank you Steve & Janine for all the help you gave us when our car broke down, you were very kind.

PERFECT BASE FOR SHORT HOLIDAY

  • 4 of 5
This was a charming little gite which formed part of a larger property occupied by the owners, Steve and Janine. The place was absolutely spotless and well equipped for living and for leisure activities, inc swimming, swingball, boules, badminton etc. The pool was of an above ground 16ft circular construction and was a welcome addition to the gite in the hot weather.
At night it was very quiet and we loved looking at the amazing celestial display every night of stars, planets, satellites and shooting stars.
Steve and Janine were perfect hosts, discreet yet available for chats and questions and very obliging.
The gite was close to Caulnes and Dinan, towns handy for supermarkets, petrol and markets. The beautiful beaches at Saint-Luanire were just 30 minutes' drive away and there were plenty of activities to keep the children happy. The gite was nestled in a small hamlet of farms and smallholdings and daily bread was available about 2km away in Plumaudan. Evening walks became a highlight of the week-long stay and the children loved seeing all the farm animals - goats, sheep, horses, cows, geese, chickens etc.
Altogether a relaxing holiday which we would be happy to recommend to others with children in the 9-13 age range.
