Marvellous menagerie! Perfect place!

We have stayed at Lesnen Petit Bois three times in the last three years. Twice with our son, daughter-in-law and four grandchildren aged 6 months to 15 years old and once on our own. It is the perfect place for children, with lots of animals to see, pony rides for young ones, an indoor pool that is great when the weather isn't too good or to relax in after a busy day sightseeing. We've stayed in two of the three properties and they are very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Jenny and Jacques are such lovely people to stay with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful place.

Owner's Response: I was so delighted to read this review and I knew straight away who it was, thank you John and Sue.
To have guests return is a great pleasure and we both now think of many people as friends.
Each year we try and think of everything to make your holiday the best that you can have and look forward to having you.

Great for adults and our two year old loved it.

Our hosts were freindly and very welcoming of our young son, the property was clean, well presented and perfectly as described.
The real review comes from our animal obsessed 2 year old who had a fabulous time dividing his time between trampoline, swings and pool or the swans, pigs, donkey and dog.
The Hayloft was just a lovely place to spend a week and there were plenty of activities within easy driving distance - Local canal walks, Dinan was 15 minutes and Dinard on the coast in 40 minutes (well worth the drive).
A great place to stay for anyone interested in walking, cycling or simply enjoying visiting beautiful Breton towns and coastline.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. The pleasure is really ours and seeing children happy and more and more confident each day with our numerous animals is a delight-not least stroking our very loving lurcher, a rescue puppy who welcomes everyone!
