The north coast is in easy reach of the gite by car and has miles and miles of unspoilt and sandy beaches. Our favourite is at St Pabu near Erquy with its many rock pools and vast expanse of sand. For those who prefer the prom and shops with their beach day, Pleneuf Val Andre and Erquy are special; the menus at the many good seafood restaurants are well worth investigating. Nearby Merdrignac (15 mn) has an outdoor swimming pool. Canoeing, pedalos and swimming is available at Jugon Les Lacs (20 mn) The recently renovated chateau at Hunaudaye is worth a visit as is the fantastic velorail at Medreac (40 mn). Zoos at Tregomeur (40 mn) and Bourbonsais (65 mn), and Cobac fun park (65mn) for 0-12yrs good to visit. From May through to September Brittany enjoys a warm Spring and Summer. Temperatures tend to average the mid 20s throughout much of the Summer. The historic towns of Dinan, Saint Malo and Lamballe are close by. Dinan hosts a medieval fair and tournament every two years in July. In alternate years the historic town of Moncontour hosts the spectacle. The town of Lamballe is home to the Haras Horse Stud and throughout the summer holds regular evening shows featuring many of its breeds of horses. Mont St Michel is a favourite visit with our guests who can spend many hours exploring the historic medieval abbey fortress. Nearby to the mount is Alligator Bay. Well worth a visit!
Absolutely fantastic, we were only there for a week but wish we 'd booked for longer! Our 3 year old and 2 year old loved the Wendy house, the swimming pool and especially all the animals. It meant that we were able to relax whilst the children played. Doug and Lin were very friendly and helpful and Doug even gave us a jump start at 4.30 in the morning when our car failed to start en route to the ferry ! Beautiful house and beautiful location.
