Review from previous guests:
"We have booked a house in Brittany this year a lot further round the coast to see if the beaches are better? Last year, we ended up by the Mont Saint Michel.
Lovely area but a long way from a good beach. Weather wasn't great as we were there when the hurricane struck America & the aftermath hit Europe.
We still relaxed & had some great food & wine.
We would still say yours is the best house we have stayed in in France. The girls are still with us, which is nice as they are 18 & 15 now."
