Beautiful gite set in stunning gardens.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a holiday, the owners George and Donna are lovely, they are welcoming, friendly and on hand if needed....they are perfect! 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. There was so much for the children to do, with a very well thought out activity barn full of games,puzzles,garden toys,table tennis table a badminton set for the garden, the list is endless! 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

  • 5 of 5

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.
