SHEREE SMITH purchased this Farmhouse in 1997
Why SHEREE SMITH chose Argouges
We originally purchased in France as our own holiday home and decided a few years ago that it is too good not to share. Although in a quite location, it is ideally situated for the road networks, air, rail and ferry travel for access to and from your home and also to explore the many beautiful attractions on offer in the region. We absolutely love the Mont St. Michel which is magical and only 14 miles away from us. There are many sandy beaches within easy reach, lots of coastal trails and walks, Children's amusement parks, fishing golf, horse riding, cycling and walking routes. Of course there is the beautiful countryside which surrounds us, fields, woods and the world famous Jules Lepenetiere hourse training track.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Conveniently tucked away in a quite location with the benefit of being near enough to be the on the main road network within minutes. Should you wish to stay away from the bustling beaches and cities, we have lots to offer here at Marigny, our very own beautiful gite, boasting south facing patio and gardens all around, wonderful pool area for splashing around or relaxing as you wish. The all important wifi which is available in house and poolside too. The children's play area has now been constructed and we are pleased to present The Mini Manoir for the smaller holiday maker. This is located so that it is visible from the frontage of our entire property. Plenty of space for outside dining.

We stayed in the two bed cottage and found it perfect for our needs, highly recommend.
Sheree and Brent were very helpful and generous and the cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. They provided everything we needed for our 9 month old: cot, changing mat, baby bath etc.
It was lovely and quiet there. Not the best weather sadly so we didn’t make use of the pool but our little one did enjoy the swing and slide!
We visited some lovely towns within an hour’s drive including Mont St Michael, Dinan and St Malo.
Would definitely stay again!
One of the best places we've stayed. Went for 2 weeks with our 3 children (aged 1-5) and I must say it was perfect. Brent and Sheree could not have made you more welcome. They were fantastic! (Thank you).
Great facilities, heated pool, park area for the kids, safe and enclosed, so no worries there with the kids. Great surrounding area with lots to see and do!
Honestly cannot receommend highly enough!
Wonderful in every way !
Our second visit to Sheree and Brent certainly didn't disappoint. Nothing is too much trouble and the house is completely immaculate. We enjoyed our stay immensely especially the company, the hospitality and the unique relaxing ambiance and character of the gites. This is a unique holiday place thanks to the attention to detail and personal touches of Sheree and Brent, We will be back !
Very nice accomodation in a quiet rural setting. Lovely pool which is meticuously maintained. Hosts nearby friendly and readily available should they be needed. Fully equipped kitchen. Be prepared to do quite a bit of driving if you want to do touristy things - it's a big country.
A beautiful house well appointed and tastefully decorated.
Situated in a peaceful rural location but within easy reach of many interesting places to visit.
A fantastic, family friendly property with extremely friendly and helpful owners
We spent a fantastic week at Marigny 2 in July 2016. The property was in excellent condition with great facilities for a young family (2 year old child). The listing description etc was very accurate and there was plenty to do in the surrounding area to keep us entertained. Sheree and Brent went out of their way to give us a quiet, easy and relaxing holiday. We would definitely recommend this property and may well visit again in the future.
