8.3 / 10 Cole family 4 September, 2018

The gite was very good for us with the garden at the back enjoyed by our 4 boys ! It was a great location for exploring this part of Brittany with loads of interesting places within 30-45 minutes drive. We particularly liked Vannes, Guerande and La Croisic with its aquarium.

There was good support from the caretaker who lives nearby and we had no problems with any of the appliances at the cottage which has sometimes been a problem on other occasions. It was very clean and well maintained although the provision of a few more basic cleaning products would have been helpful initially.

We'd certainly recommend the gite for another family group and hope to return in the future.

The gite was in a great quiet setting down a country lane.
The building had charm and there was space outside to relax.
Great value for money.

Loved this place. Was such a lovely part of the country and we fully explored the area on our bikes. Gite 3 had everything you could need for young children and we used the garden daily. Would fully recommend and had a super time and thank you for providing a lovely setting for a great holiday!
