Guestbook comments from the owner
"We had a relaxing and wonderful holiday staying at Brittany Thatched Cottages. The cottages are beautifully appointed, comfortable, well equipment and very clean, distinguishing them from some other holiday rentals we have had. Neil and Trish are wonderful hosts, they're there when you need them but never intrusive. The grounds and setting are tranquil and verdant, with a myriad of walks and country lanes for cycling. The pool added welcome relief and relaxation at the end of some of the warmer days. Whether you want to stay put and read books, amble around the Brittany country side - eating crepes and drinking cider, or drive to some of the many historic towns in the region, Brittany Thatched Cottages makes a perfect vacation. Oh, and let's not forget their fabulous dog Connie - a keen, lovable and very well behaved boarder collie." Alison and Roberta (LA & London)

The pictures do not do this cottage justice. It looks good on the website, but it is even better in person. Tricia and Neil have done a fantastic job of renovating and maintaining their properties (cottages and grounds). Of all the holiday properties we have stayed in over the years, they are the most organised of any of them without a doubt. They have thought of just about everything - a guide to local attractions, details of the property history, a list of 500 DVDs to borrow on quiet nights, a food basket upon arrival (great when you are tired and arrive late with small children). We have a 1 year old and almost 3 year old. Provided at the cottage: a buggy, highchair, baby monitor, full size cot, stairgates (top and bottom), baby bath, baby potty, rail for the 3 year old's bed, child seats on the bicycles - they had it all! It made our lives so much easier!! The cottage is well insulated and warm, the woodburner is cozy and really works (and it is out of reach of children), the showers have good water pressure - there's nothing to complain about. We visited in Feb, so it was too cold for the pool, but we did play on the playground equipment. Tricia and Neil are very friendly and hospitable. Nothing is too much trouble. Tricia even baked us a loaf of bread at one point.

We visited several local attractions, although many things were closed due to our out of season travel dates: Market and fishmarket at Vannes (GREAT - we went twice), chateau and village of Pontivy, Suscinio Chateau, beach and prehistory museum at Carnac (warning: museum is not overly suited for small children), the 'village' of Melrand which is an actual archeological site, beach at Place des Plage (very nice), sailboat museum just outside of Vannes (very suitable for children of any age). We went on a bike ride in the local area and over to the local creperie, which was very good. Tricia and Neil offer various treatments in their property - manicures, massages, etc. I had a pedicure, back massage and facial. It was very relaxing and handy that I did not have to leave, organise someone to have the children, etc. For the first time ever, we extended our holiday. I would definitely recommend this property.

We stayed at La Grange for the second time this summer (July 2010) and yet again it was 'the best holiday ever'. The cottages are very well equipped and the location is relaxing and beautiful. The standards of cleanliness, provision, facilities and care are outstanding.

The children were happy all day in the pool (and cricket, football on the vast lawns. The adults were happy to relax in the sun and the hardest part of the day was cooking tea on the barbeque at night with a cold beer in your hand.

We enjoyed cycling to the local shop every day for fresh french bread and the market towns of Bubre and Baud are nearby. We also enjoyed walking around the area (normally accompanied by Trisha and Neil's collie Connie - who also doubled as an excellent fielder at cricket with the children)

My wife needed to see a Doctor whilst we were there and Neil could not have been more helpful. In fact I do not know what we would have done without him. He came with us, on a Sunday, to a town and translated for us and managed to get everything sorted.

All in all you could not wish to a better holiday than here at Le Helleguy and you could not wish to have better hosts than Neil and Tricia who
I cannot recommend them highly enough to you.

Suggest you book now and stop looking elsewhere. This corner of France is heaven on earth - you will love it and you will not find anywhere better.

We stayed at Le Helleguy in April and were fortunate to have had really beautiful weather. The house was comfortable and contained all that you would need and more. Everything was spotless and user friendly. The gardens were large and lovely to wander round and play in for our 10 year old daughter. She also enjoyed the pool which was a bonus.
It was easy to visit places in the area and there was lots of information at hand and Neil and Tricia were always happy to be asked questions about local facilities. It is a great place to relax and unwind.

This was our 2nd visit to Le Helleguy in 8 months and our 1st staying in La Grange. We were as pleased this time as last,if not more, and still couldn't fault anything. This cottage was as clean, well equipped & decorated as their other one and perhaps a little more suitable for our small party of four for 1 week & then three for the second week.
We had chosen Le Helleguy a 2nd time as a special place to stay for celebrating an 80th birthday. Tricia & Neil were extremely helpful in arranging catering at the cottage for the evening, making a booking before our arrival at our choice of restaurant for lunch & ordering & even collecting the "trois chocolat" cake for the day. It made it hassle free for me & assisted in giving the birthday boy some lovely surprises on the day. I couldn't thank them enough for all they did.
The grounds were as previously immaculate and a real pleasure to walk around. Swimming in the pool was a joy as well.
The fourth member of our party hadn't been before but I know will certainly have recommended Le Helleguy to her children and family.
We had a terrific holiday and whether you stay "at home" or are out for the day it is equally enjoyable.
Well done and thank you Neil and Tricia for providing such a wonderful place for those precious holidays.

The location is idyllic, the cottages superb and right from the moment you arrive, the peace, tranquillity and luxury of Le Helleguy take you over. Inside the gites, the attention to detail is everywhere in evidence. Outside, the gardens are magnificent and the pool has a removable cover so it can be used whatever the weather. The owners welcome you warmly with a smile and a basket of local food. They could not be more friendly and helpful whilst at the same time making you feel that your cottage belongs to you. Highly recommended.
