The property is in a fantastic location, such a peacefull, restfull place to take a holiday, yet there is so much to do close by. We visited Le mont st Michel, fantastic. Fougeres with its lovely chateau and great places to eat, we went to a couple of local markets, We visited Rennes, with all its history and also great for the shoppers(my daughter).
The farmhouse has everything you could possibly need, it was lovely and clean, had a fully equiped kitchen, lovely comfortable rooms, it has a great games room, we spent a good few hours in there playing pool and darts, we had a great time.
The outside space has a lovely bar b q area and the views are amazing.
I would recomend this place to everyone, you will not be dissapointed. We will be returning next year without a doubt, we loved every minute.
Thank you to Kev and Linda for making us feel so welcome, you have a great place.

We stayed at La Foret de Glenne for a week in August. We went as two families with 4 children with ages ranging from 3 to 15. We had an amazing time here. Accommodation was spot on. Clean, tidy with all the amenities required. We were welcomed by Kev and Linda who showed us around and gave us some local knowledge to help with our stay. Kids and adults all loved the pool and even though we had glorious weather the fact that it was heated just meant it took the chill off and kids could stay in for longer. We made use of the BBQ area and loved sitting outside to eat or round the big table inside, which I expect has an amazing atmosphere in cooler months when the fire is lit. Older kids especially enjoyed the games room - challenging the adults to a pool or darts game. We went on days out and roads are really good to drive on - not like in the UK. All rooms were clean and spacious and the showers were great too. All in all we had a really relaxing holiday and we made lots of happy family memories. Kev and Linda could not of been better hosts also. We will definitely be visiting again and would definitely recommend to others.

Owner response

Totally bewildered by this review!
They reported everything to be good to my face on a daily basis, only to leave the house filthy and damaged and then go on to leave such a review!
Good luck to any owners who may accept a booking from them in the future.

We have just returned from a lovely two week break in Foret de Glenne, with our two daughters, their husbands and four grandchildren. The setting of this place if beautiful and peaceful with the added bonus of a heated pool and lots of child friendly play areas. The surrounding area has loads of places to visit, both bustling and quiet, depending on what you prefer. The local town Louvigne de desert has a large supermarket, along with smaller shops and cafés. Only down side is that you really need a car to get around as nothing is within walking distance. We spent a lot of time in Fougeres which had some lovely shops and cafés and also had entertainment on near the castle. Kev and Linda the owners live on the premises and are on hand if you need anything or any local knowledge. This place is perfect for large family gatherings and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a base for their family holiday with plenty to do in and around the surrounding Area and also lots of activities to keep everyone happy on days when you just want to relax and not venture too far.
