A wonderful place to relax. Nothing to complain. Very nice owners. Perfect also for families with children. Pets allowed.
I would recommend this property to friends, family and clients.
Dol de Bretagne is a small and very nice village with some good restaurants.
" Saint Samson" or "La Flambée". There are 3 big supermarkets and very nice bakeries.
We will visit "La Tertre Ychot" next year again!

We all loved this place and did not want to leave, we wished we had booked a longer stay. Our hosts Peter and Jane were very friendly and helpful and a joy to talk to. The Gite itself was well placed for visiting places like Saint Malo, Mont Saint Michel and the Normandy landing sites and more.
It is also just outside the village of Dol de Bretange which in itself is worth a visit and has a lovely Main Street with all facilities.
The accommodation itself is well equipped, has rural character and is in a fantastic relaxing country location. All five of us would recommend this as a great place to stay.
