The apartment is well decorated and interesting with all necessary facilities. The bed is very comfy and it was easy to get a good nights sleep. Lovely little garden - great for an alfresco breakfast. Thank you for a lovely weeks holiday.

It is fully equipped with everything you could need for a very comfortable stay. Although you are set in the most beautiful countryside you are very close to many interesting towns and villages and there is plenty to see and do. Sue and Les are perfect hosts and completely respect your privacy but are on hand with a wealth of local information. If you are looking for comfort in a beautiful part of France you cannot go wrong by choosing La Morinais.

Five minutes to the centre of Rennes with manned underground parking (Parking Les Lices) about 3/4 minute stroll. Antoine will meet you at the apartment to ensure that everything is as it should be and to ensure that you know enough about the apartment and Rennes to truly enjoy your holiday Lots of good al fresco eating nearby. Much to do in Rennes and car access to and from Parking les Lices is very easy. A most enjoyable stay in a city that we enjoy very much.
