A beautifully presented house, extremely clean and comfortable. Not only was there ample room for us all but we really felt at home there. The garden and pool are impeccable and the people who maintain them very friendly and kind. Isabelle was always available by text if we had a query. The nearby towns are beautiful and we did a day trip to Nantes. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this home to everyone. Thank you Isabelle for a wonderful holiday and for sharing your beautiful home x

We stayed here 5 years ago with the same friends and we enjoyed the Gite then, and we felt the same this time. Although the adults were happy the children were more happy as their only concern was the swimming pool, which kept them entertained. The location of the Gite is great and the local area is good as we spent many hours in the local town of Rochefort en Terre and the surrounding area. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Just returned from our third visit to Brecéhan, we love it so much we booked for two weeks this time! Since the youngest child was 18 months we have been staying as 2 families and have found this cottage to be perfect for all our needs. Now the children are older, when we have had our fill of lazing by the pool enjoying the sunshine and wonderful countryside view, we have ventured further to find the surrounding area offers so much to do. Our favourite days were at the lake near Rochefort en Terre (moulin de neuf) for water sports and cycling and a trip to the coast at Kervoyal as well as all our old favourites! Isabelle's has always been very friendly and helpful ensuring our stay is as comfortable, fun and restful as possible. I am sure we will be back!

Lovely gite, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. From first contact to the end of the holiday the owner was friendly and helpful.
We were grandparents, daughter, son in law and two grandchildren aged 3 and 9. The children , and all of us, loved the pool and there was plenty to keep the children happy.
The location is great, wonderful view over countryside; and with plenty to see and do for all of us nearby. Beautiful beaches,and lovely villages and small towns to visit.
We loved Rochefort en Terre, and there were good restaurants there, plus a variety of creperies. We also enjoyed Josselin, especially good value was renting an electric boat for a few hours.Malestroit was great for lovely old quarter and good shops.
Definitely ten out of ten.

Owner response
