Lovely comfortable house in a peaceful rural setting.

We very much enjoyed our stay. I slept better than I have for years!

The house is very well equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay.

Really appreciated the kind gesture of a welcome pack, especially Karen’s delicious homemade jam!

Lovely venue and lovely service

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a visit to this area of France, Josselin is just down the road with the Brest to Nantes canal. Access to the walks, bike rides and fun boats is great. Even with inclement weather we had a lovely stay. The directions from the owner are clear and procise and the local management is incredibly helpful. Thank for letting us enjoy are our stay to the full.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

On completion of our booking the level of communication with Kathy was excellent, this provided all of the information we needed for our holiday preparations.

The property was easy to find and very much as described in its advertising. The home was clean, very well appointed with everything we could possibly need for our fortnight. A "welcome basket" was waiting for us on our arrival and this would provide the necessary essentials until our first shop, it was particularly well stocked and a very thoughtful idea.

Furniture and appliances throughout the property are typical of a holiday home and of an acceptable standard, however the owners should consider changing the washing machine and television as they are on the cusp of failure. However these are minor issues that did not detract from our overall enjoyment of the property.

However we did find that the upstairs bedroom became unacceptably hot during several days of our holiday, making sleep difficult. A fan was kindly provided but this did not go far enough to improve the situation. We would recommend repairing the insect screens so that Windows could be left open and the provision of further fans etc.

Karen the housekeeper is superb, offering advice and guidance on the area etc and nothing was too much trouble for her. She clearly works hard to ensure standards are maintained.

In essence we would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home, it is in a beautiful area with plenty of things to see and do. A wonderful experience that we hope to repeat in the future.
