Make a holiday rental gite or villa in Fougeres, Finistere, France your home away from home

The Fougeres area of Brittany is one of quaint fishing villages and charming seaside towns. The region is adorned with long sandy beaches and green rolling hills where outdoor activities of all varieties thrive, as do relaxing beach breaks indulging in the finest of Breton culture and cuisine.

Things to do on holiday to Fougeres, France

The Fougeres coastline is a huge asset for Fougeres holidays, with long sandy beaches that never become crowded, even during the height of summer, as the more famous beaches of St Malo are located just 45minutes along the Breton coast. The beaches are perfect for swimming, sailing and beach fishing. Kite-surfing and windsurfing are also excellent in the region, with lessons and equipment hire available from water sports centres all along the coast.

The edges of the Villecartier Forest fringe on the Fougeres area, with its many miles of walking, horse riding and cycle routes that delve far into the forest. There are a great range of equestrian centres in Fougeres, and bike hire is equally easy. Cycling holidays in the area have become hugely popular, allowing you to tour Fougeres at your own pace, visiting the amazing pre-historic dolmen and stopping in villages like Montours, Parigne and Noyal-sous-Bazouges for a refreshing glass of French wine or a heart Breton meal in one of the many charming restaurants that can be found in almost every village and town in the Fougeres area.

The Parc Floral de Haute Bretagne is a fantastic place to spend a day from a Fougeres holiday rental, with huge botanical gardens surrounding the huge stately home that stands in the centre of the park. When the gardens are in bloom, there are few sights more impressive, although different sections of the gardens bloom at different times of the year.

The famous Breton attractions of Mont St Michel (20 minutes from Fougeres accommodation) and St Malo (45 minutes away) are extremely accessible, and make for almost essential day trips from a Fougeres villa, gite or holiday home.

We were seven, including our four children and eldest child's boyfriend and this house accommodated us all comfortably. The huge loft bedroom was a big bonus with it's large L shaped sofa. We were able to split up and use two separate living areas. The entertainment centre upstairs only has a video player but we brought a laptop and some DVD's to watch whilst others were glued to the Olympics downstairs! Pros: Pretty, nicely decorated, clean, well equipped. Great communication with owners. Gorgeous big garden with flowers, fruit trees, sun loungers, BBQ, large table and lots of chairs. Walking distance to supermarket, boulangeries. Pizza van was very good. Tree-top walk in forest (much nicer, and cheaper, than Go Ape!) is a must. It's only minutes away and has a lovely playground and lake side cafe. Cons: Very minor. Beware the beam across bedroom in the night....ouch. Upstairs bathroom is en suite for large bedroom, Downstairs bathroom has Jack and Jill doors to bedroom and living room. Privacy was a bit of an issue. Kitchen/diner small. We just about squeezed around table but mostly ate in garden anyway. No dishwasher. Could be seen as a pro - made kids wash up! Village is very quiet. Again this is subjective but there was nowhere for grown up, non driving, kids to go on their own. All in all we had a very nice week in this house. There is plenty to do within a moderate drive and I thoroughly recommend it.

The house was beautiful, owners extremely helpful, leaving us a welcome package of wine and cheese. The house is well appointed with everything you need and more. With 6 children (all boys!) ranging in ages from 3 to 15 they were all well catered for with the play room and children's toys outside. We couldn't have asked for more with this house, it exceeded all expectations. Close to tourist attractions but hidden away with lovely views across the countryside. We loved the quietness of the place. We all loved this place and very much hope to come back. A real home from home....a gem!

Our family stayed for four nights in August 2016 - the gite is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Home made chocolate cake on arrival! Two bedrooms, both with en-suites, great kitchen and living space. Situated in beautiful French countryside, it really is idyllic. Anne and Simon were perfect hosts and we enjoyed chatting to them about their life in France. They also gave us tips on local attractions and restaurants. We visited Fougeres (castle tour is a must), Bayeux and the Normandy beaches, all within easy driving distance. We have holidayed in France for the past 15 years and this is one of the best gites we have ever stayed in. We will definitely return and would recommend to others without hesitation.
