The cottage was clean and well supplied with essentials. The owners were welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

10 / 10 Shaws on Tour 18 July, 2018

Lovely gite that has clearly been finished to a high standard. The pictures don't do justice to how spacious it is, for a couple it's generously proportioned.

Convenient location, 5 mins from a Supermarket and petrol station but set amidst peaceful rolling countryside. Plenty of places to visit in the local area but also an ideal base for anyone who wants to explore further afield, being an hour(ish) from all 3 coast lines (North, South and West).

Ann and Laurie were perfect hosts and available for any advice we needed on our first visit to Brittany. Looking forward to returning in the future.
