What an amazing setting, as we drove to the Gite down the road it was so peaceful and tranquil, just amazing. The rooms are so spacious, and well equipped for everything that you need, the outside space is just amazing, the seating area and the pool with the views looking out in to the countryside is what we wanted, so it ticked our boxes. Joanne and Paul were the perfect hosts, there when you needed them and not to be seen for the rest of the holiday. We would recommend this venue to young families (but not disabled/mobility issues).

My only complaint about this beautiful place is that the photos don’t do the place justice in any way, shape or form!They’re slightly outdated in that the lounge area now has an incredibly comfortable settee that will seat 8!

The owners have clearly read the past reviews and changed all they can to make future guests stays better!

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners who,had immaculately cleaned the house from top to bottom!We were given a tour (there’s also an info packed folder) I don’t think there’s a single photograph on this website that actually does anything justice (ok,maybe the pool,WHICH IS NOW HEATED 27•C)If you like what you see in the pics,you will love what you see in person!

There are 3 doors leading into the front of the cottage,in the bedroom,in the dining room & our chosen door to use, the kitchen! Every room is huge! The kitchen has a full size fridge freezer, dishwasher,microwave,washing & coffee machine,this is where the WiFi box can be found.Upstairs is the lounge,with a further 2 bedrooms and bathrooms off and another staircase leading up to the single beds pictured.There are lots of safety features with young children in mind here,ie the oven has a child lock.There are no safety gates though (but to us that was a good thing:)

Owners very discrete, you see them if you need them, otherwise not at all. We LOVED the place! Missing some essential utensils for full cooking. Take some with you and perfect home!

Thanks for fab time!

We enjoyed a two week holiday with one week of glorious weather and the second not so hot
The swimming pool was great for our granddaughter (12) who spent most of her time in it
The gite had everything we needed and was located well for travelling around Brittany
The only thing missing was a bar nearby to walk to but plenty to choose from in Malestroit all in all a very pleasant holiday.

Excellent property in a quiet location but very accessible to some beautiful towns and countryside.
One of the reasons for booking this property was the swimming pool and we weren't disappointed, particularly as the daytime temperature was in the low 30'sC.
Lovely stone house as well with plenty of room. Highly recommended.
