Location was very rural, as we were seeking. So peaceful and off the beaten track. Yet no too far from nearest village and town. Plenty of interesting places of interest not too far away. Would recommend La Bouscaudiere without hesitation

Mark and Lynda are very friendly and welcoming, nothing seems too much trouble! The pool is lovely - unfortunately we had a lot of wind and rain for the week, so we didn't use it (and the whole outside area - seating, loungers, outdoor heating, large garden) as much as we would have liked to! The area is beautiful, if very rural. The towns nearby are lovely, but be aware that everything shuts down for the afternoon as is French culture, and there is very limited choice to eat out before 7/7:30pm, which was a bit of an issue having two small children who need to be in bed by then! St Malo was lovely and seems a bit more cosmopolitan (so being closer to here may give more daytime options for young families?). Mont St Michel is only 30mins away, as is Alligator Bay - both worth a trip. Overall a lovely stay in a very well-appointed gite! Thank you Mark and Lynda!
