Fabulous house and hosts

  • 5 out of 5
You could not be made to feel more welcome here. Tricia and Neil are excellent, kind and warm hosts. What made this place special was the finishing touches they have put in place, from the huge and delicius welcome hamper, to the cleaning equipment, oil and balsamic vinegar! The pool is brilliant- warm and inviting, even if it is raining, with the telescopic cover. We cannot recommend this place highly enough!

A wonderful week at Le Helleguy

  • 5 out of 5
We have just completed a week long stay at Neil and Tricia Young's picturesque location in Morbihan, Brittany. Our group consisted of 3 couples (all around 60yrs old) as well as another couple who were travelling with us in their motorhome. We rented La Chaumiere and were delighted to find that it was just as we expected from the photos and description we had read on the web site. It was accurately described and was spotlessly clean for us when we arrived. Tricia's instructions on how to find the gite from Quistinic were ideal and as we arrived after a fairly long drive we took advantage of the "Welcome meal" that Tricia had recommended. It was superb! and so good not to have to go to the bother of cooking when we were all tired.
Tricia and Neil were excellent hosts: always there if we needed any help but never intrusive. We particularly enjoyed using the cycles to explore the area and had a great day following the canal tow-path along the Blavet river to a delightful lunch at "Rendez Vous aux Pecheurs" - a recommendation from Tricia who also made the booking for us.
We would be more than happy to recommend La Chaumiere to our friends and others.
We enjoyed swimming in the heated pool even though the weather was a cool 15 to 16 degrees and none too tropical for June. We also appreciated Tricia and Neil permitting our friends with the motor home to have it parked there all week.
If we had to find a negative comment it would be that the kitchen was a tad too small when cooking for 8. There was really only room for one adult in there at any time but having said that, it didn't stop us producing some gastronomic feasts! Everything we needed was there to do the job!
The location of Le Helleguy suited us very well and we were able to easily travel to all the places we wanted to see with a maximum of 1hr 30mins driving - lots of sights were much closer than that.

Au revoir from 8 New Zealanders - all now confirmed francophiles.

Fantastic

  • 5 out of 5
We have recently returned from spending a week at Le Helleguy and already we want to go back. We stayed in La Chaumiere which is a beautiful, large cottage, which has everything you could want to make your stay effortless and extremely comfortable. We chose Le Helleguy for the pool and childrens play area, as we have a 3yr old, and were thrilled to find a large outside games cupboard with all manner of games to play. The retractable roof on the pool is fantastic. The weather was a little cool when we first arrived but it made no difference to the use of the pool, thankfully, as our boy couldn't wait to get in there. Entertainment was also provided for him in the form of Connie the resident dog, who was known as his "best friend" for the duration of the holiday at least. The play area is far enough away from the cottages so as not to disturb other guests staying in the other cottage, which is always a consideration for us (we still remember life before having a child!). We loved the private outside area for our evening bbq's and a relax, mulling over the days events. The gardens are lovely and kept impeccably. Trips to Lorient for the beach and Vannes for the market were easy drives and there is a good supermarket at Baud, just a short drive away. Unfortunately I didn't get to try out any of the beauty treatments on offer, but think that this is as good an excuse as any to return very soon to try them out. We had a fabulous stay here, and I'm sure future guests will love Le Helleguy and Tricia and Neil as much as we did.

Spring 2010

  • 5 out of 5
What a fabulous holiday we had in the La Chaumiere thatched cottage. The decor and style of the cottage is second to none and we have been in many cottages all over the world. Even on a warm spring evening we lit the log fire and enjoyed the ambiance of the high ceiling in the living room. The welcome pack contains so much food and drink you hardly have to shop again!! The cottage is very well equiped and contains many items you would normally have to go out to buy. Particulary the kitchen where it would be very hard to find anything missing!! Tricia and Neil were marvelous hosts - there when you wanted them and very helpful but not at all intrusive. The gardens are well set out and extensive. There are garden games for the young and older. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the patio having a glass of red wine after a hard days' sightseeing.
The cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside and lots of historic villages/towns/fishing villages. There is something to do for all ages.

An idyllic retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Le Helleguy is nestled in the South Brittany countryside, and provides a very relaxing experience. The cottage (La Chaumiere) was very clean and spacious. Nothing had been skimped on, and the bedding, towels, cooking utensils etc were all of high quality. Everything had been thought of. A welcome basket had been provided containing a variety of groceries and drinks, which was a very nice touch. The grounds are stunning, as are the variety of plants and flowers. The roses around the doors emit a wonderful scent. The swimming pool is well maintained and clean, and it was lovely to sunbathe on loungers around the pool. We enjoyed some day trips to local towns, such as Josselin, Carnac and Vannes, and also enjoyed country walks and cycle rides around Le Helleguy. I would highly recommend Le Helleguy.

our new favourite place!

  • 5 out of 5
I am reluctant to share with you just how good our holiday here was as it will mean more bookings and more difficulty for us to get back. This cottage really is as good as it looks. It is immaculately clean, you need bring nothing with you as it is incredibly well equipped (and I have two young kids). The owners are incredibly helpful (nana left behind all her urgent medication and they helped to arrange doctors visits, even offering to come along and translate for us). The garden was fantastic for the kids to run around - very safe and great play equipment. My two loved the pool and it was so good to be able to use the pool even though the weather was not that hot - the all weather cover is a great idea. My husband and I both took advantage of the treatments available. He had an indian head massage and reflexology and I had a facial and pedicure - fabulous and the kids were safe across the garden with the grandparents - what more could you ask for? We didn't come to visit the area, just to chill out after a hectic week at Disney and it is a very good chill out zone. Forgot the mention the welcoming basket - the best ever! kept us going for 2 days. A really relaxing and beautiful place to stay. Very highly recommended. ENJOY!
