I moved out to Brittany with my husband in 1988. We bought Toulambic with the intention of doing B & B and painting holidays as my husband was an artist. We had to rent a gîte whilst doing the renovations and hence the idea to do gîtes occured. I've been running the gîtes ever since and it's nice to meet guests who appreciate Brittany and it's beautiful scenery and tranquility.

Lovely rustic gite. The bed was a little on the hard side, but everything else was fantastic. Would have liked a small mirror in the corner of the bedroom near the plug.
Pleasant and private -centrally placed.
