About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Lesley Bunney

We moved here in 2005, after living abroad for a number of years. We fell in love with the Presqu'ile and especially the magic of Le Rhun. We love the peace, the space, and the big open skies here. We wanted to share the magic of our quirky and homely gites, and are always creating new places for children and grown ups of all ages to explore and play.

Lovely property set amid beautiful grounds. Children had a brilliant time - the whole place was geared up for children to be able to play outside safely. The owners were really helpful and the location was excellent for exploring the many different beaches.

This was a beautiful and lovely place to stay perfect for our family where you can relax in your gite whilst the children safely play with the vast array of child friendly toys and facilities. It was clean, quiet and very relaxing with friendly but unobtrusive hosts. The local amenities are bakeries, supermarkets, creperies and beaches basically but there is no need for more as there is a different beach to visit each day and if you are lucky like us, friendly fellow guests for the children to play with and adults to chat to on a rainy day in the communal areas. We loved the place and hope to return next year.

Just back from a very relaxing break at Le Rhun. Truly couldn’t say enough good things about it.. Lesley, Becks and all the gang were so welcoming and helpful.....from providing eco friendly fire lighters to endless toys and play areas for or two young kids, we didn’t want for anything. Argol was an easy stroll in the mornings for fresh bread and pastries and the Blue Rhino was an even shorter stroll for our wine in the evenings!

The pool and all facilities were spotless and very well maintained. The grounds were beautiful and teeming with bird life. Our little girl adored the fairy garden, pirate ship and forest walk and our little boy loved the sand pit and all the toys in the Barn. Regardless of the weather there’s load for kids to do.

Thanks so much for everything guys. No question, we’ll definitely be back.
