STUNNING GARDENS AND LOVELY POOL AND FABULOUS OWNER
I’m so pleased I found this holiday home. The owners are lovely, and we got on very well. Laurence the lady speaks some English I speak some French so between us we were more like friends. My young adult nephews thought she was a lovely person too. A week wasn’t enough really because we found we were only a mile and a half from the coast road leading to Cancale. If your a seafood lover your in heaven!! Oyster beds everywhere the fish and seafood are exceptional. We found a shack with a pull in off the road and had a huge bowl of moules mariniere with local Breton cider for not a lot of money. Also Dol Bretagne is a fantastic medieval town with excellent shops and restaurants. In la Fresnais there is a Boulangerie selling fresh artisan bread from early morning and fantastic patisserie. The supermarket for a local one is very well stocked. Your on the outskirts of the village so if your fit it’s a 20 minute walk otherwise 5 minutes in the car. Your only 15 minutes from St Malo too. The property has 3 king sized (French) beds one on the ground floor. There is a wood burning stove but we never needed to use it. The kitchen is well equipped. The shower room is lovely too. The Gite is very comfortable. There are so many places you can eat in or out on the verandah or the picnic table. The garden goes on for ever and little tables and chairs or sunloungers are placed at intervals for quiet reflection. There are chickens at the bottom but the garden is so big you can’t hear them from the house. We had to push ourselves to leave the garden and the pool to sightsee especially when it was hot. We would definitely return and were so lucky to have found Laurence and Jacky and their Ebony Orchard Gite.
Beautiful, well equipped property with an amazing garden
Just returned from a very relaxing stay at the Ebony Orchard. The house is a lovely size and very tastefully decorated with comfortable seating in the lounge area and plenty of seating options to enjoy the wonderful garden. The pool was lovely for a refreshing dip in the afternoon and the height of the pool surround meant it was just like standing at a swim up bar. The wonderful gardens have to be seen to be believed as they seem to stretch on endlessly with their very own badminton and boules court. Laurence and Jacky were very friendly on the rare occasions that we saw them and I was very happy that Laurence's English was much better than my French. The village is about a mile away which was really handy as we visited the fantastic Boulangerie every day for their wonderful bread and croissant. This was a very restful and peaceful stay in tranquil surroundings which I would highly recommend.
Diane & Bas
Lovely property, great hosts, amazing garden, highly recommend.
Great base to explore Brittany
This was our first experience of booking a house in France through this site, and although we had to use Google translate a few times I was glad we did. The owner was very quick to respond to our emails, and happy to answer any questions.
Our SATNAV bought us straight to the house from Cherbourg ferry terminal in two hours, plus a small stop off to get supplies for our first night. The house has everything you could need and is equipped with all mod cons, coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave etc.( you will need to remember to buy some toilet paper though)
There are flat screen TV'S in all three bedrooms, and a large tv in the living room but no English channels, so be prepared to be truly immersed in the French holiday experience. Great shower room with loads of hot water, separate toilet off from the kitchen. We stayed for a week and although the pool was too cold to get in, it was lovely to sit out under the covered deck area in the evenings, or stroll around the beautifully kept gardens.
Lots of places to go, Cancal is10 minutes down the road and serves up the most amazing sea food on huge platters, and the oyster beds have to be seen. Mont St Micheal and the horse drawn carriages is great, St Malo the walled city was great with some splendid views from around the walls , Dinard and Dinnas all great and have some great markets to look around.
In Fresnais just two minutes by car you will find the local supermarket, and a lovely bread and cake shop. There is also a pizza restaurant on the edge of town that makes really good takeaway pizzas. We could have eaten out in Cancal every night it was so nice there, great atmosphere, and locals so friendly in the restaurants.
Great house and central location, hosts live on site in an adjacent house by the road and bought us fresh eggs, very friendly and they speak some English.
Quiet peaceful location, centrally located and decorated very tastefully.
I would recommend this house if you are planning to visit Britany, you will not be disappointed.
Schönes Ferienhaus mit tollem Garten
Das Ferienhaus hat eine super Lage für Ausflüge in die umliegende Umgebung. St.Malo, Dinan, Cancale und Dol de Bretagne sind quasi um die Ecke. Wir haben mit unseren Kindern 11 Tage hier verbracht und kommen gerne wieder!
We spent two wonderful weeks in La Fresnais in October 2018 and enjoyed Laurence´s perfect hospitality. The huge garden is fantastic, but if you woud like to explore the surroundings the house has the perfect location: Cancale, St. Malo, Mont St. Michel, Dinard (!!), ....all nearby and easy to reach. We definitely will come back soon.
In Fresnes, we have a tourist tax of 1. 20 euros per adult per night.
