Thereafter, there was absolutely no scrutiny or intrusion but, whenever we ran into them, they were always seeking re-assurance as to our comfort and needs. The wi-fi provided gave reasonable speed and is reliable and consistent. TV service is also good. The setting is just about as peaceful as can be imagined but is nevertheless within easy range of several small towns and larger villages with a full range of facilities between them. Overall, a very enjoyable week's experience,

We were welcomed by Dawn and Graham who were friendly, helpful and generous supplying a welcome pack, a supply of wood for the fire and their time. The location is tranquil and very rural - we loved sitting on the back terrace looking over the countryside and enjoying the late Autumnal sunshine. We had taken our bikes and within an easy driving distance were able to cycle along the glorious Nantes/Brest canal, nice and flat, very quiet and absolutely stunning. A dip in the heated pool completed a perfect days activities. There is surprisingly plenty to do in the area, lots of lovely villages to explore and beautiful beaches within reach, although a bit quiet in October! We enjoyed a couple of lunches out in local creperies but in the evening preferred to stay in our cosy cottage around the fire. We would, without hesitation, recommend this property to others.
