We loved Every second of our holiday Kev and Linda were wonderful hosts and made the holiday even more enjoyable . It is a gite that suits all ages. We range from 9 months to 65 years old. there was something for everyone. We have had holidays in this region for 12 years and this gite took the best bits from both the other places that we stayed. We are counting the days to our return. We spent our days either at the gite or visiting our favourite places especially Dinard and St Malo and our essential visits to the best restaurant we know The vieux Moulin at Hede as well as exploring new places. The pool was wonderful and warm and there was entertainment for all ages in the games room as well as swings and slides for your younger members as well as a sweet mini gite for the very young of the family.

We visited La foret De glenne with my sister in law and her husband, he had never been before so didn't know if it was his type of holiday, but should never have worried, he loved every bit of it. The farm house, the views, all the excursions we all went on, it was great taking him to all the places we love around the area, the fab beaches, only an hour away, Rennes with all its great shops and restaurants, the many brocantes we visit to buy things for our garden.
The farmhouse and surrounding are beautiful, it's a little piece of France I will never tire of visiting, so peaceful, I'm sure we will all be back as soon as possible.
Thank you Kev and Linda for making us so welcome.

Beautiful old converted farmhouse. Superb setting in open countryside. Completely un-overlooked. Massive games room with loads of stuff (see website) Nice swimming pool. The house is totally equipped with everything you may need.
Not 5 star luxury but very clean and tidy. Some stuff has seen better days but its all there and it works.
Shame about the flies but it is surrounded by farm land.
Lovely owners Kev and Linda live next door and are very helpful if you need them. Apart from that the only time you see them is when they clean the pool.
Would recommend this place to anyone who likes peace and tranquility. Great views.

We had a great time at this venue. The hosts Kev and Lynda were helpful, but also discreet. It was ideal for our large extended family group of 8 adults and 5 children. They loved the facilities and the games activities.

The location is beautiful. Weather can't always be relied upon in Normandy but there were plenty of wet weather options and the large games room is fantastic. The covered BBQ and fire pit area was a real treat.

The accommodation has some eccentricities but this just added to the charm for us.


I would certainly recommend la Forete to other parties and would like to thank Kev and Lynda for putting themselves out to make our holiday special.
