                                                                                                      This house was perfect for our family consisting of my husband and myself, our daughter and son-in-law and our two grandchildren, aged 4 and 2. The layout worked very well for us, with a double bedroom and bathroom downstairs, and three other bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs. We've been caught out before with houses which sounded good, but turned out you had to walk through one bedroom to get to another, or only had one toilet, or no bath (which is tricky with very little ones). I've never seen a house so well equipped for children, with all the baby/toddler equipment and paraphernalia you could think of, as well as many games which they loved playing, a real bonus. The pinball machine (which we had thought we wouldn't use at all) provided endless fun. The house was very clean and Brigitte and Remi were extremely welcoming and helpful, especially as our arrival was delayed somewhat due to gale force winds the day we travelled. In addition, they provided some bicycles and two pushchairs for us, which was fantastic. The pool was amazing, and was the highlight for our 4-year old granddaughter, and helped keep us all cool the second week, when the temperatures soared. The location was excellent - walkable to the beach of Pont Mahe and Le Pieds dans L'eau restaurant, where we had some lovely meals, and our daughter and son-in-law also managed to cycle to Auberge du Gros Bill one evening for a meal (too hot for me)! The little town of Penestin was only 5 minutes drive by car, with lovely little shops, supermarket, cafes/restaurants and a great market on Sundays. We also visited many places, all within 30 - 40 minutes drive - La Roche Bernard (we went by boat from the Arzal Dam), Le Croisic Aquarium, Branfere Animal and Bird Park (the best bird display we have ever seen!), Guerande and the salt marshes, and my husband and I drove up the coastal area around La Baule one day, while our daughter and family met up with some friends in St Nazaire. Overall, we all had a wonderful holiday and hope to return. Highly recommend.
