Karl and Coral and their family were delightful, helpful, and friendly and respected our privacy at all times. We took the ferry from Portsmouth to Cherbourg and the drive down to Le Ferré was leisurely. Le Ferré itself is very very quiet indeed – we only visited it every morning for bread and pastries from the boulangerie. Saint James is considerably larger, with its own impressive Église Saint-Jacques, which is worth a visit. Of the supermarkets, Super U is definitely superior - the fruit and vegetable selection was stunning - the Carrefour, which is rather smaller, we found overpriced in comparison. It may seem obvious, but a car is a must in this area! Le Pas is a beautifully converted barn and is an ideal base for exploring Brittany: Dinan, Dinard, Saint Malo, Le Mont Saint-Michel and Fougères are all within easy driving distance. Recommended also is the coastal town of Cancale for an oyster and mussels lunch and probably the best ice cream in the world. If you don’t mind the picturesque two-hour drive on Brittany’s immaculate highways, it’s worth visiting the stunning Île de Bréhat and taking the boat tour round this breathtaking archipelago: it’s the sort of place you want to keep secret, but can’t. Although it was early May, the weather was still favourable enough at Le Pas for us to be able to enjoy the sunshine on the patio in the evenings, admiring the beautifully tended garden, savouring the sound of the breeze in the trees, playing the odd game of pétanque, and sampling the wines of France. Thank you, Karl and Coral, for a superb holiday!

There's a pool and a fab children's playground for younger ones. Nothing is too much trouble for Sheree and Brent, and they are a fount of local knowledge with some great recommendations. This was a great base for us to explore the local area - Le Mont St Michel, Fougere, Cancale, Pegasus Bridge - and the best to come back to. Highly recommended.
