About Trudy or Rob
This is a family run business and we live on site therefore will always be around to offer help and advise but discrete enough not to intrude. We have worked hard to gain a reputation on providing great facilitates for families and try to provide a fun, relaxed and child friendly atmosphere making your holiday truly unforgettable and hope to help create lots of memories for the family album. We have 3 children who have grown up helping us run the business and we are sure you will agree are a credit to us. We like to encourage all guests to inter-mingle and try to join everyone once a week during the summer evening for a site get-together bbq and pop quiz (don't worry we are not experts) During the evening we will try to persaude everyone to participate in trying snails or frog's legs...so don't say we didn't warn you!
Trudy or Rob purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Trudy or Rob chose Malguénac
We took many months to find our little corner of tranquility but the moment we saw it we knew it was the one for us. Bonne Chere is surrounded only by pine trees and forest offering a real sense of freedom and solitude. Whilst we try to provide everything needed for a stress free holiday, mother nature does her bit too. By day, go and explore the forest fauna and flora (deer, squirrels, badgers, foxes, buzzards, owls, woodpeckers to name but a few) and by night with next to zero light pollution it's also a great place for a spot of star gazing. We love Morbihan's countryside, its meandering rivers and its glorious coastline along with its long sandy beaches, rocky outcrops and quaint picturesque harbours and believe our guests will too.The gastronomic delights of Brittany await you whether it be crepes, galettes, cidre, beer, wine or the fresh fish and shellfish. With boulangerie's on every corner with their mouthwatering patisseries too...who can resist Brittany
What makes this Cottage unique
This charming group of cottages is set within 33-acres of beautiful quiet woodland countryside surrounded only by pine trees and forest. You will find 3 exceptionally well equipped cottages offering stylish and comfortable accommodation where families can escape the hubbub of everyday life and where tranquility promises only to be disturbed by birdsong. Guest's children are welcome to help collect eggs and feed the chickens and both Brambles the pot belly pig and Bonnie & Clyde our excitable goats relish any kitchen leftovers. Pontivy, the closest town is well served by restaurants, bars & cafe's, boutiques and supermarkets and is also a very interesting town historically. There are many places of historic and scenic interest to explore all within a short drive or you can equally spend your days relaxing, taking a dip in the pool and watching your children have the time of their lives.

Stokes Family GalwaySuperb family getaway . Something for everyone in a wonderful tranquil setting.
Had two fun filled weeks in this fantastic gite in Bonne Chere. Ideal family holiday with excellent onsite facilities whatever the weather. Lazy afternoons spent in the barn combined with more energetic outdoor activities . Mum trying to beat Dad at badminton and succeeding was great . Children mixed well with other children on holiday and ideal place to take in day trips. Loads to see and do . A car is a must . Gite has everything you would need for relaxing holiday , gites v well equipped and spotless, Rob and Trudy always on hand if needed. Best bit for us was not having to travel everyday to create great memories and have a fun day. On this holiday less was more. Look forward to returning some time again in the future. Thanks guys for a great holiday . Ronan, Mary , Daniel, Kate &Lauren.
