10 / 10 Family Reunion 10 September, 2018

A group of 8 adults and a toddler found this to be an excellent property to spend a very relaxiing week. It is the best equipped self catering accomodation we have ever encountered. It is extremely comfortable for both sitting and sleeping. The outside space is well kept and ideal for adult relaxation and child freedom too.. We appreciated the friendly welcome from our hosts, the kind welcome pack and their helpful responses to our questions. The local area is indeed "tranquille". Shopping for provisions was a short drive away but the roads were very quiet. There are plenty of sights worth seeing within a reasonable distance but we found one of our best days was when we just stayed in and enjoyed the property and all it had to offer. We highly recommend Chez Tranquille and hope to visit again in future.

Owner response

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we were happy that you found a new bike hire service to the area a complete success. We also hope to see you again in the future! Conrad & Janet.

A brilliantt stay for three generations of our family. Comfortable, clean and comprehensively equipped. A great welcome package awaited us upon our arrival after a long drive from Kent. Very accommodating and friendly hosts, eager to impart their local knowledge. Difficult to drag the seven children aged from 2 to 11 away from the pool and garden.
Would definitely recommend and we'll surely be back.

Owner response

Fantastic house. Great outdoor facilities, heated swimming pool, table tennis, boules and a huge garden for kids to run around in, lovely BBQ. House very well equipped. Ensuite bedrooms very comfortable. The best equipped kitchen ever. Plenty of indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Janet and Conrad very helpful and informative about the area.
The advert you see is very representative, it really is a great house. The property was very clean and with your immediate essentials provided, even some beer!!.
Our party were all delighted with the house and would have no hesitation in staying there again. Short distance from St Malo, Dinard and Dinan, all worth a visit. I cannot praise the house too highly, it's a great place

Owner response

So glad you all enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again in the future. Janet & Conrad

A very enjoyable stay! We were a group of four couples and all hope to return with either friends or families this is a perfect set-away for either. We all enjoyed playing boules, table tennis and of course the pool. Janet and Conrad are the perfect hosts and help with all queries from restaurants and boat trips to walking their pet sheep!
