We didn't expect such fantastic weather at the beginning of April and were incredibly lucky to have sunshine for the full 3 weeks. We went for rest and relaxation and got it in spades and managed to fully recharge our batteries. The cottage is clean and tidy and has everything we needed. It is comfortable in the sitting area and the bed is incredibly comfortable with very good quality bedding. I slept better than I have in years. There is plenty of storage in the bedroom and there was always lots of hot water. There are many different kind of birds who came onto the patio to eat the food that the owners had placed there for them and it was lovely to watch them and to listen to them singing. The place is very quiet and surrounded by wild flowers and trees. My partner fished in the nearby river and even caught a trout! We were sad to leave and could have stayed the whole summer. If you've booked you will love it and if you're considering booking I would recommend that you go ahead and do so, you'll definitely not regret it. I also recommend the Le Krill restaurant which is a few minutes walk away down the lane. Amazing food and drink at reasonable prices (some of the best we have ever had in France). We went on Friday lunchtime and it was very busy with local diners. I bet it's difficult to get a table in the height of the season. The big supermarket on the way into Granville is the place to get excellent groceries and great wine. For those that are wondering.....there is phone reception and the wifi works ok. Believe me though you'll want to put your phone onto silent!! I also must mention the amazing night sky, there is no light pollution and the stars are fantastic, just mesmerising! We would be very happy to go again, it's such a little tranquil oasis.

The kitchen was well equipped and the beds very comfortable. It was very clean and the villa was set up a quiet road (although it often wasn't quiet while we were there, as they were digging up the road to lay piping) and a pleasant back garden and patio to sit in.The area has some lovely valley and coastal walks nearby and thebeach is fairly close by. The village of Carolles had a convenience 8 till 8 store as well as a newsagent and butcher, and a baker where we bought croissants, baguettes and yummy fruit tarts every day!
