About Rob Rivett

We moved to Brittany in 2008. We spent the first 18 Months renovating our house and the barn conversion, which we now holiday let. We love this part of France with its amazing coastline, wonderful restaurants, forests and meadows, not forgetting the warmth of the people and relaxed pace of life. We of course now enjoy being able to share this with others. Rob and Shirley.

Rob Rivett purchased this cottage in 2008

Cosy, homely gite

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Rob and Shirley's immaculate gite. They were the perfect hosts and had supplied us with everything we could possibly need. The kids had so much fun playing in the gorgeous garden and the location is an ideal spot to explore The lovely beaches and towns in Brittany. We will definitely be back.

An excellent property to explore Brittany

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation was a very good standard, well equipped with everything and much more than you would expect from a holiday home. The grounds are kept immaculate and totally safe for young children, we had full use of the Summer House and our children made good use of the garden swing and slide. The owners Rob and Shirley live nearby and made our family very welcome, we would certainly stay again and recommend the accommodation to anyone visiting France . Brian and Vanessa

Immaculate, character gite with attentive hosts

  • 5 of 5

By far the best gite we have stayed in, in France. The owners have exceeded expectations of them by providing lots of little extras for the guests - milk, eggs, bread, wine, beer, toys! Rob and Shirley being on site have got the balance just right - their garden is yours throughout the stay and if you see them, they are friendly and accommodating but they also give you your space.

The gite was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Shirley even provided bed sheets to appeal to the various ages and gender of our children.

The resident pets added to the experience with the friendly Max the dog, as star of the show.

Smashing location too - lovely, typical French towns and beaches nearby.

When we left at 5.30 this morning, my four year old hesitated to step out of the front door and asked, 'we will come again, won't we?'
