Overview

About the property

Parsley Cottage - Beautifully renovated cottage to sleep 2-3

Here, at La Marette, we are very conscious of the fluctuation of the GBP exchange rate in the current economic climate.

With this in mind, we have discounted the rates substantially in order to accommodate this.

​Times are tough, but we all need (and deserve!) a holiday and we hope that this compensates you in some way.

Parsley Cottage is a beautifully renovated cottage with bedroom with a stunning double bed and enough room for a cot or a put up bed and at the other end of the bedroom is a feature slipper bath. Downstairs is a eat in kitchen with all the mod cons and a lovely sitting room overlooking the garden. The gite has it's own wooden patio furniture. There is a trampoline and various garden games for all.

La Marette is set in approximately 2 acres of garden and orchard bordered by fields and woodland. A perfect spot to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Situated close enough to the N12 to be a great advantage to reach airports, ports and cities such as Rennes, but not so close as to be a nuisance. St Malo port 50 minutes, Dinard airport 30 minutes and Rennes airport 40 minutes away.

La Marette is perfectly situated to explore Brittany.

Beaches are about 40 mins away, and you have lots to choose from. Saint Cast Le Guido has a lovely beach and as you drive around the point the views always takes my breath away as you come round each corner you come to yet another beautiful bay.

Dinan is a beautiful town and very quirky with its cobbled streets and wonky buildings – Thursday morning is market day in Dinan and well worth the visit.

If you are a cyclist or enjoy a good walk there are many cycle routes in the area and up at Jugon les Lacs plenty of walks around the lake as well as various other activities.

From Mont St Michel to the Granite Coast there is plenty to explore.

Catering at La Marette - although the gites are beautifully equipped for self catering, La Marette is able to provide a selection of catering options from €15 (euros) per person every evening except Sundays.

(payable locally).

There are various extra packages available to add to you holiday, please contact owner for further details.

What remains to say is....... book soon!

Please contact the owner directly for availability - contact details are on my website, the link is found under the Facilities tab.

**please note that the check out time is 10am**

Non all'altezza del prezzo

  • 3 of 5

Il sito è molto piacevole, ben situato per fare gite in luoghi molto belli della Bretagna e il giardino che circonda il gite è molto bello tanto da somigliare a un parco. L'interno è arredato con gusto. Questi gli aspetti positivi. Purtroppo però esistono anche quelli negativi. In primo luogo non c'è il wi-di né all'interno della casa né all'esterno come invece ci era stato assicurato. Secondariamente alla televisione si possono prendere solo pochi canali ed esclusivamente inglesi e

ciò è perlomeno bizzarro essendo su territorio francese. Inoltre paragonando il prezzo con altre possibilità nella regione si vede che il rapporto qualità- prezzo non è conveniente anche considerando che il consumo di elettricità è limitato e se si supera bisogna pagare la differenza. In tutte le altre strutture che abbiamo frequentato questo non è mai stato chiesto.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you felt you were mislead in the wifi situation, the listing does state that there is wifi on the property but due to the thickness of walls and distance from the main house it is limited in the gites. Also the additional electricity cost is clearly stated in the listing, so should not have been a surprise, and usually only incurred if you use the heating, which during the summer is not necessary. You did not incur any additional electricity charges, so I am not sure why this is a problem? The listing also clearly states that the TV is UK only. I have tried getting French TV in the gites but the walls are too thick and they face the wrong direction for a signal.
