So glad we booked to stay here (my sister and I booked both gites for our families) as the accommodation and setting were first rate and our hosts were just lovely. Everything was well maintained and spotlessly clean.
The gites are rural and peaceful but only a 12-15 minute drive to supermarkets and Dinan and St Malo is only about 50 minutes away. There's a small range of shops in Brusvily too, only a few minutes drive away or you could borrow bikes from Rob's plentiful supply and cycle there!
There are excellent facilities for those with young children and us oldies also enjoyed table tennis and swingball too!
It was great to hear about the transformation of the farmhouse and gites and the incredible amount of hard work that was put in to make them the comfortable dwellings they are today.
Thank you Jenny and Rob for making our holiday memorable for all the right reasons and for your hospitality, we very much enjoyed meeting you and staying at La Mere Canard.

Once again we had a great week. We were a family of 8 and rented both gites. The gites are very comfortable and well equipped and the facilities for children are particularly good. Jennifer and Robert are delightful hosts. The area has a lot to offer. Our favourites were swimming and fishing in the local lake, the fantastic beaches and Dinan,

My husband and I, along with our 5 and 2 year olds, really enjoyed our week’s stay here. The owners made us all feel really welcome, ensuring from the word go that we had everything we needed (including giving us food for supper on the first night as the shops were shut!). There is a lot on site for the children to do which meant we were able to relax watching them play. We were there at the same time as another family with 3 boys which made our holiday even more enjoyable. There are bikes of all different sizes for you to use at your leisure (many fun trips to the local shop for croissants and baguettes!). The owners even put on a Pimms night which went down very well!
It is clear they have put a lot of effort into ensuring you have a lovely relaxing holiday; many families come back year after year which is testimony to this.

I particularly enjoyed swimming in the pool although my children found it a little on the cold side.

I would definitely recommend this, in particular to anyone with younger children.

Owner response

Dear Anna,
Thank you for your lovely comments, we do appreciate feedback from our visitors.
We do try to ensure that our guests have a nice family holiday so that both grown ups and children can take advantage of the garden and activities but also have time to relax and enjoy themselves.
It's also nice to chill in the evenings over a glass of Pimms with all of our gite families whilst the children either play or are in bed.
Kind Regards
Jennifer and Robert.

Have no hesitation giving full marks for Le Mere Canard @ Les Meserettes, this is my second visit and wont be my last.
Jenny & Rob have created a special place at Le Meserettes suitable for all, a great location with an excellent baker, butcher and plenty to do locally, I can recommend Cancale, Dinan and Dinard, Could have done with another week to see more but its so relaxing at Le Meserettes, its a job to get away.
the accommodation is well maintained and clean with everything you need (corkscrew) and more, although I went with friends this place is really well equipped for children.

Thanks Jenny and Rob for another great holiday
