Lovely stay in rural Brittany
We had all 3 properties for a week, and they are just charming. The owners (who live on site) are there when you need them, and also keep themselves to themselves. The facilites they have are great - especially for children.
Many thanks to Donna and George for our stay in the sunshine.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to meet you again in the future.
I cannot recommend this property highly enough there were 13 members of our family spread over the three gites with enough space for everyone. The gardens were beautiful.
Donna and George were perfect hosts always ready with help and advice about the area and things to do.
Many thanks for an excellent week.

Excellent facilities. Lovely situation. Great hosts
Beautiful gite set in stunning gardens.
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
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.
There is a range of local produce markets near by and regular antique / flea markets. The village has an Artisan produce market every Sunday morning. The village bar hosts regular live music events and the village has a Jazz festival in June.
Countryside walks and cycling - over 43kms of marked routes in the local area and walking can / cycling commence directly outside the gites. Adult bikes for local use available.
