Charming home from home.

5 of 5
Having left booking our holiday until pretty late in the year, I was delighted to find this house. We were seven, including our four children and eldest child's boyfriend and this house accommodated us all comfortably. The huge loft bedroom was a big bonus with it's large L shaped sofa. We were able to split up and use two separate living areas. The entertainment centre upstairs only has a video player but we brought a laptop and some DVD's to watch whilst others were glued to the Olympics downstairs! Pros: Pretty, nicely decorated, clean, well equipped. Great communication with owners. Gorgeous big garden with flowers, fruit trees, sun loungers, BBQ, large table and lots of chairs. Walking distance to supermarket, boulangeries. Pizza van was very good. Tree-top walk in forest (much nicer, and cheaper, than Go Ape!) is a must. It's only minutes away and has a lovely playground and lake side cafe. Cons: Very minor. Beware the beam across bedroom in the night....ouch. Upstairs bathroom is en suite for large bedroom, Downstairs bathroom has Jack and Jill doors to bedroom and living room. Privacy was a bit of an issue. Kitchen/diner small. We just about squeezed around table but mostly ate in garden anyway. No dishwasher. Could be seen as a pro - made kids wash up! Village is very quiet. Again this is subjective but there was nowhere for grown up, non driving, kids to go on their own. All in all we had a very nice week in this house. There is plenty to do within a moderate drive and I thoroughly recommend it.

Fantastic House, fantastic holiday

5 of 5
The owners sent us a really good pack with lots of information - a good idea and we hadn't had that before. The cottage is clean, well presented and the bedrooms are really sweet and well stocked. We enjoyed the wood burner fire as we don't have one at home, but remember to get logs. My children loved playing in the orchard, and there were some kids DVD's and books to read which saved space for us. Overall a lovely house, cosy and decorated with some lovely French touches. Make sure you take a trip to Mont Saint Michel - outstanding. We will return to La Tullerie thank you Mr Tuck.

Somewhere to come again

5 of 5
Our stay was lovely - the cottage is tiny but very comfortable, clean and well equipped. We loved sitting out and having our meals in the sunshine, alongside the butterflies feasting on fallen pears. Sweetcorn harvest in surrounding fields was Interesting! We cooked damsons from the trees, also cider apples to go with blackberries from along the lane. Local walks good, also Brecey and the lake. We visited Dinan, Granville, Villedieu, St Hilaire, Mortain - all interesting. Enjoyed good meals at L'As Gourmand (Brecy) and Le Port (Granville).
