This has to be the best (large) house to rent in Belle Ile !

5 of 5
We have been going as a family of 6 to Belle Ile for 10 years and we have rented houses and stayed in hotels. This time we went with cousins and grandparents and the house was just perfect. It is extremely comfortable to stay in and the furnishings are very well appointed. The pool is super clean and warm - I guess 28 degrees. The accommodation is ideal for a larger group with two main houses and an annexe - so plenty of room to get some peace. The location is superb - very near Sauzon and with 10 minutes of Le Palais. Dana - the housekeeper and cook was excellent and prepared breakfast (having cleared up the remnants of dinner!) and kept the house immaculate. The owner Celine has been very straightforward to deal with as well. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone - its the best!. Jeremy Aitchison and family.

A really magical place to stay

5 of 5
We chose this place because we wanted to be in the middle of the fun and bustle of the port. The view from the sitting room over the harbour and out to sea is truly spectacular. Watching the boats come in and out was pure pleasure. It's so light and airy, and the windows are so big, that we didn't miss having an outdoor space. All the rooms felt much larger than they looked on the listing. Everything was in good order, clean and tasteful. The kitchen was well enough equipped for simple cooking. Good shower. Master bed wonderfully big and comfortable. You're seconds away from everything you could need in the town. We took our drinks down and sat on the harbour wall every evening ... We hired electric bikes and explored the island every day, parking them overnight back at the hire shop for safety. Obviously, being so central, this isn't the right place if you're looking for 100pct tranquillity - you are right in the middle of things. This worked for us, but might not for everybody. Communication was excellent with the owner, and the lady based on the island who manages the property was exceptionally warm and helpful.
