Your holiday rental cottage in Belle-Ile-en-Mer will allow you to relax to the max, but for when you fancy getting involved in more of the way of activities, there are plenty to choose between.

The owner was very helpful in advance and supported us in any matter also during our stay. English is no issue. The house is very well equipped with all necessary things also for babies. All items are in really good condition and the house is nicely renovated with really nice furniture. The children enjoyed the stay as there were enough toys, games and lots of books / BD to read. A real benefit is the walking distance to one of the nicest beaches on the island. We highly recommend this house especially for families with children. It is definitely our first choice for our next visit.

It was clean and well maintained with more than enough space for all of us and more. The layout worked well and the main reception area / room was nicely set and very relaxing. The owner was always very contactable and helpful. I would happily recommend the house to anyone who would like to stay on Belle Ile. It's location, close to the main beach is a bonus if you have kids that enjoy water sports. That said, Belle Ile is a beautiful island with no shortage activities and things to see. And hard to leave when the sun does decide to come out.

Nicely decorated to make the house look like it was a traditional French house. The only negative thoughts are the beds were a bit hard and the wind blew down the chimney leaving downstairs smelling of wood smoke. It's a shame bedding isn't included in the price as we would expect in the UK. The housekeeper was very nice and helpful. We would unreservedly reccomend this house for a holiday.
