Booking and contact was very good. Check in easy. Owners were delightful and very helpful with what was going on in the area where to walk. They let us move outdoor furniture around so we could all eat together in the courtyard. Bakery delivered daily. Some of the beds were on the short side so one of our tall teenagers ended up on the floor with cushions. Swimming pool good den had loads in it. Games tv pool table board games puzzles loads of books children’s and adult. Overall lovely property and wonderful owners. We had a great holiday here.
A little piece of heaven!
Incredible, fantastic, surprising, perfect!!!! Just some of the words we'd use to describe this magical hamlet! You know when you see something online and then are sceptical whether it will be as good as it sounds? - Well this was better than we could have ever imagined. The setting is idyllic and the owners are so warm and welcoming.
There were three couples in our party and we all decided to make our way there using different forms of transport (top gear challenge style!) One couple (no kids) decided to go by motorbike on the overnight ferry to St Maolo, the other couple (with a little boy of 21 months) decided to eurostar to Paris and then train and hire a car, and we (two children - 3 and a half years and 21months) decided to drive! The journeys were surprisingly easy!
With three different couples the accomodation provided everything you might need (and even more with extra high chairs, baby baths and playpens) La Marie was just perfect and the facilities and grounds were wonderful and provided everyone with something to enjoy. The games room was well equiped with all sorts of great games for the evening in front of the crackling fire and there was a great cinema room.
We so enjoyed our fresh croissants and bagettes that were delivered in the mornings and just cannot believe the incredible weather and fabulous holiday we all had. We would highly recommend Le Gohic and would like to thank Lucille and Barry for their warm hospitality (which even included windscreen washing fairies!!!!) We will definitely return... ;0) Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at Le Gohic with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 year old granddaughter. Our cottage, L’Ecurie, was like home from home with everything needed to hand. We swam in the pool, had lunch on the patio, rocked in the hammock, and relaxed by a log fire on an evening. Lack of light pollution meant that the stars were an amazing sight to see. Just perfect!
The hamlet is truly picturesque and so tranquil, as though from another era, and we extend our compliments to Robin and Sheila for making Le Gohic such a special place. Their website is an excellent insight into the properties, facilities and surroundings.
The beaches we visited were beautifully clean and unspoilt, and surrounded by lovely villages and countryside. We took a boat trip from Vannes around the Gulf of Morbihan, and visited the well preserved chateau at Josselin before walking by the Nantes-Brest canal, highlighting the beauty of Southern Brittany.
If only we could have stayed another week ...
Fantastic place to totally wind down!
We spent the week here with our daughter and my parents and loved being in such a beautiful place in the countryside. The cottage was incredibly well equipped and the hamlet was perfect for small children.
Sheila and Robin are excellent hosts and made us feel totally at home. Fresh croissant and pain au chocolat delivered to your door in the morning was a delight!
We will certainly be returning and would recommend it wholeheartedly to other families.
Absolutely fantastic place to spend a holiday
We had an absolutely fantastic holiday. Le Gohic is such a lovely and beautiful place to stay. The kids had a great time and loved it there. It was so nice to find somewhere that is so child-friendly but also a lovely, tranquil place for adults to enjoy as well. We are already planning to come back again next year! Thanks for such a wonderful holiday.
Excellent family friendly holiday
Le Gohic is an absolutely beautiful place and the best holiday we have had with our small children (1.5yrs and 3 yrs). The cottages are beautiful and well equipped. The owners are helpful and unobstrusive. There is plenty to do within an hours drive and the beautiful grounds and heated swimming pool provide plenty of opportunity for family fun on-site. We went with a group of 8 adults and 7 toddlers, staying in 3 of the cottages and had a wonderful and relaxed time.
