We enjoyed our stay at Dragey-Ronthon. It was an ideal place to explore the area of Le Mont St Michel, Avranches, Granville and the surrounding beaches for lovely walks. Ludovic was on hand if needed and provided some useful local knowledge including the restaurants in Genets. Thank you Andrew and Ann

Lovely Gite, beautiful rural setting. Shame about the weather!!

5 of 5
We had a lovely week in this beautifully decorater, spacious and very comfortable gite. 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!
