The gites have everything you could possibly need, they are decorated and furnished beautifully, the swimming pool was cleaned every day and the gardens are out of this world.

The location was perfect for going of and exploring,with plenty to do each day. We cannot recommend this property and the owners highly enough!!
Characterful cottage in beautiful Brittany
All we wished for in this charming cottage complex. Our hosts (and their friends) were wonderful (and always willing to go that extra step, to ensure our enjoyment of our holiday was as complete as possible). Pool clean and warm, garden a visitor attraction in its own right. Only down side, local pub rarely open - however great company and catering from our hosts and other guests made up for this. The hosts are bird-watchers and this was an added bonus for our family.
