Hosts Phil and Jenny were warm, welcoming and informative, attentive but not intrusive. The accommodation is outstanding, 6 large bedrooms all ensuite which allows privacy when required, three large communal areas kitchen, lounge and bar/dining area which comfortably seat a large number of people when eating or socialising. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, plus there are plenty of fridges and a freezer in the kitchen and bar area, which easily cope with the demands of a large family/group. The standard of cleanliness throughout the property was outstanding, with excellent attention to detail. The outside area has a very pleasant pool and hot tub area - fenced and locked so safe for children of all ages, 2 spacious patios ideal for a BBQ and beautifully tended gardens - again, fenced all round so very safe. The Games room provides ample entertainment for everyone in the unlikely event of rain. Wifi available if required. The local area is interesting, Josselin is a town worth visiting more than once for a stroll or to eat. Ploermel has an Activity lake with plenty going on. Carnac is slightly further away but well worth a day out to visit the Megaliths and enjoy a meal at nthe seaside town of Trinite-sur-Mer. A superb holiday was had by all, everyone thought the accommodation was great value for money.

A big plus is having your own parking and being so close to the centre of Rochefort en terre. Also a nice area for sitting outside in the sun and having a glass or two! Thank you for a wonderful time!
