There was a warm welcome from Sheila, who was very accommodating with our early arrival time.
The provisions were very welcome and generous.The fresh flowers were a lovely touch.
What a lovely homely base to explore this beautiful region of France.
We would highly recommend this apartment and hope to revisit in the future.
Delighted to have met you all and so pleased that you enjoyed your time in Brittany. It would be our pleasure to welcome you again some time and I look forward to being able to share a some more insights into the beauty of this region. Thank you for the review. Sheila
We spent a very comfortable week with Sheila at Les Camélias. The property is as described and we found it to be just what we needed.Sheila could not have been more helpful and welcoming.The location of the accommodation is perfect to explore the local surrounding towns & villages and not too far away from the main roads which link to the larger cities in the region. For us the proximity to St Malo and the ferry was perfect with a quick in/out on turnover day.The accommodation offers excellent value for money and its rural location is perfect for a quiet getaway.
Thank you for the lovely review and for taking the time to complete one. We really appreciate your comments and are so pleased that you enjoyed your time at chez Les Camélias. The area has plenty more to explore and we hope that you may considere re-visiting the are another time.
