Guestbook comments from the manager
We have had a glorious week spent in this gite. So wonderfully welcoming and homely. We loved sitting by the fire every evening and enjoying the facilities. Everything was thought of, we found everything here we needed. And thank you for the basket of goodies, we shall definitely recommend to friends.

RELAXING HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
The property was ideal for either couples travelling together of for a family. If you want a complete getaway then this is the place to go. The pool is lovely and the beds very comfortable.
We had a lovely family of blue tits living in the wall cavity just behind the outside seating and it became a daily ritual to watch out for them.
Just be aware that if you leave the back door open in the evening you may attract some of the local wildlife. (a toad, a bird.) nothing to worry about.
The local village of St James is lovely and the people very friendly, and a must is a visit to the war cemetary just up the road. The towns of Avaranche and dinan are also local places worth a visit.

YOUR SEARCH IS OVER!!

  • 5 of 5
If your looking for a beautiful villa, stunning location and for lots to do around you, your search is over. We had a fantastic holiday the accomodation ticked all our boxes and is especially good for couples and families travelling together as the bedrooms and bathrooms have been laid out in 3 sections, giving you privacy even when travelling with a large group. There is endless amounts of activities within a few hours drive. We had a relaxing afternoon in the beautiful port of calnais, shopping in Rennes and visited Europes biggest castle. The maison l'automobile is a must see for all the family (much better than beauleigh in the uk) and although a 2 and a half hour drive puy du fou is definately worth the drive for a full day or two day visit! This is no doubt the best villa and location we have stayed at and at an extremely reasonable price there really is no need to continue your search! Thanks very much Owen! The Robert Family X

BEST HOLIDAY RENTAL WE HAVE HAD

  • 5 of 5
First impression was of a very well loved property. Beautifully clean pool - and a well appreciated welcome pack. Descriptions of the property and surrounding area were accurate. Photographs were up to date so there were no shocks. The couple who maintain the property were extremely helpful and pleasant. The cleanliness was perfect. Well situated for activities and eating out. Would be very happy to recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in this area of France. I would certainly rent this property again without even bothering to look at others if I was to travel to this region again.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic family vacation. We stayed at the Vieux Chalonge for 5 weeks. The property was spacious and comfortable. The web site provides and accurate view of the property For us this was a longed planned event for our family especially our grandchildren which fully met our expectations. After a day of touring the many local sites of interest we were all happy t be back at the farm for a swim and dinner.
This can be best summarized as a great property, good location and child friendly. The rural setting among working farms provides a good feeling for life in Normandy.

A LOVELY PEACEFUL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
The house is charming - a real home from home. It is a very peaceful surrounding and the only noise we heard were the cows mooing. We were very well taken care of by the lovely caretakers and loved our welcome pack - thank you very much. St James is a lovely little town and there are some great places to visit nearby but we mostly drank wine, ate cheese an mucked about in the pool - our perfect holiday! Thank you!

STUNNING VILLA IN A STUNNING LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Le Vieux Chalonge Villa in Saint James. The villa is so peaceful and quiet no one overlooks the villa so you have privacy and with a small child it was ideal so he could play, make noise and I knew we weren’t disturbing anyone. The villa is very safe for children, it has an entrance gate which we kept closed naturally so our son could run around and play. The pool is lovely as its also a bit elevated (on a small hill above the garden) to catch all the sun, it is also fenced and gated so children can play safely in the garden and can’t get in without a key. We really enjoyed the shaded veranda next to the garden, it was lovely eating our meals out there to enjoy the fresh air and scenery.

We did have two days of rain so we stayed indoors, the villa was very warm despite the cool breeze and rain we didn’t have to use the wood burner/fire place. We watched TV my son loved having CBeebies (UK Children’s TV Channel) and we also enjoyed the TV in the evenings. I found the tourist information very useful in the folder.

To be honest we didn’t do too much as my husband & I have both very stressful jobs and our life is so busy we were looking for somewhere just to relax and spend time together as a family. Le Vieux Chalonge provided this & it was a perfect holiday. We eat at the villa every night we had BBQ’s and cooked meals and ate at the dining room table, all the facilities were top notch. We did go to the Grand Aquarium in Saint Malo, this was excellent we actually went twice in the week were at the villa. I would really recommend it for all ages it is well put together and very easy to get to from the villa about 40min from Le Vieux Chalonge. Just near the aquarium there is a lovely steak restaurant, and also a few shops. We really enjoyed our lunch at the restaurant reasonably priced and food was excellent, very child friendly We also went to Alligator Bay again very well set out and good for all ages it was about 20-30min from the villa, it is also not far from Mont St Michel, we also went to the zoo one the way to Caen – well worth a visit if you have little ones we really enjoyed it.

I would highly recommend this villa and the owner as everything went very smoothly. The staff that maintain the villa are very friendly & helpful (English Speaking), they recommend things to see & do as well which is always helpful for local knowledge as well.

Thank you for a great holiday!!
