We have just returned from an idyllic holiday at Mane Roch.
The weather, the setting and the accommodation were all excellent. The cottage was spacious, cosy, well equipped, and scrupulously clean. There was even a t.v. which had all the main English programmes as well as French but we only used this on the occasional evening as we were usually tired after visiting one of the many surrounding attractions.
The garden is ideal for al fresco meals and we barbecued very enjoyably. The neighbouring shops and markets, a few miles away, provide a wide range of fresh food and if you feel energetic, bikes are available. There are several good eating places within a short distance.
Our hosts, Chris and Jacquie were extremely hospitable and always available for help and advice while being absolutely non-intrusive.
We had a lovely time and thoroughly recommend Mane Roch. We certainly hope to return next year!
