We stayed with friend in Le Vieille Grange for a week in June. The whole complex has been beautifully refurbished and everything is provided for home from home comfort. We enjoyed our holiday so much we have booked to return in September. An excellent location for exploring the locality, especially by bicycle - the roads are so quiet.

We had a wonderful time in a fabulous setting which was all we could have wished for. The standard of accommodation was first class ,spotlessly clean and furnished to high quality with excellent facilities . The owners could not do enough to help ensure our needs were met. We just cannot wait to visit again to see all of the wonderful sights that this region of Britany has to offer.

We highly recommend this property to others ( although selfishly we would like to keep this little gem ito ourselves!).
