About Paul Killeen
Paul moved to La Bournais from the UK, and we are enhancing the already great facilities at our Farmhouse & Cottages, which have been run as very popular holiday accommodation for the past 20 years, by Pam and Gary, the previous owners. Paul runs his main business (established 25 years) - Algarve Villa Rentals - from La Bournais, and fully understands what is needed to run a successful rental business I am a keen walker and cyclist, We will be on hand, but not intrusive, to offer advice and information to make your stay with us as enjoyable as possible.
Paul Killeen purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Paul Killeen chose Jugon-les-Lacs
I decided to look for a property in France in 2012 to expand our already successful holiday rental business in Portugal. We knew that we could apply the same principals to a French property as we have done in The Algarve for the past 25 Years. As soon as we saw 'La Bournais' we knew that this was the property we could put our stamp on. The location is perfect; minutes to a thriving village, under an hour from airports & ferry ports and under 30 minutes to the nearest beaches. With the addition of a heated pool in 2013, we feel that we can offer a truly complete French holiday experience.

The 1 bedroom cottage was warm, confortable and spacious and had all the facilities needed (maybe we missed an extractor hood for the kitchen). Wi-fi didn't work during our stay, despite the efforts of the owner with his IT Company.
We really enjoyed the garden on the back door, where we could share time with our friends (who occuped next cottage), chilling in the loungers, playing with our baby on the grass or eating bbq on the table outdoors. We were really lucky with the weather, we expected much more rain..
The pool are was nice too (though temperature of the water was a little cold for what we are used too).
Location was good, quite but close to our needs: 5 mins by car from Jugon-les-Lacs (where you can find supermarket, boulangerie, etc), 20 mins far from Dinan, 1h to Mont Saint-Michel and 2h to D-Day sites.
In summary, we really enjoyed our time at La Bournais and we definitely will recommend it.

Tranquil and beautiful
We had such a wonderful and relaxing time the local area is stunning especially some of the local villages and their fabulous restaurants. Paul made us so welcome and the cottages are so rustic and clean. The pool area is great and we learned to play Boules properly and hope to go back for a re-match very soon. Paul was so helpful and even supplied us with fresh bread in the mornings and pastries if he was going into town.
Paul's recommendations of where to visit were great to and if you get the chance you must go to St Malo the mussels were to die for...
Will be re-booking very soon as fights are so easy to get too.
