                                      a beautiful, tranquil spot in rural Brittany

                                      5 of 5
                                      A lovely and sympathetically restored Breton cottage, complete with beautiful arched front door, new but traditional windows deep set in stone walls and a wonderful old stone fireplace now home to a large wood burning stove. The kitchen area, bathroom and bedrooms combine contemporary style and simplicity with a respect for the atmosphere and history of the old building. Velux windows mean the top floor is bathed in sunlight whilst the ground floor remains cool in the heat of summer. The rear terrace is secluded and peaceful and a perfect spot to while away the evening listening to the birds. All very kid suitable too ...we had a 3 and 7 year old with us and although not fenced off from the road at the front, it really is very quiet so we were happy to let them roam free, whilst the back garden is secure. I'm no Brittany expert - but the little hamlet and nearby villages seemed very typically 'Breton' and all the people we met were lovely and friendly. In particular the couple who look after the property (it was beautifully clean and tidy) and live next door - were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us without being in the least bit intrusive. This place made for the perfect, peaceful getaway. It's also really well situated for days out at the coast, Mont St Michel, Dinan, Dinard or Rennes. We also had a great afternoon at Cancale (on the coast about 1hr away) clambering on the rocks and then eating mussels and oysters in one of the many lovely seafront restaurants. The next beach north - Port Mer is also well worth a visit if you're after a sandy sunbathing spot - and of course amazing ice cream. However I recommend spending at least one or two days going nowhere - just sat on the terrace or in the sitting room back at La Cudelais enjoying the peace!

                                      lovely location

                                      This gite is in a peaceful and attractive rural location, with a large garden ideal for relaxing or playing games. There are a wide variety of well known tourist destinations within easy reach. Inside there is everything needed for successful self catering; the furnishings are all bright and modern and there is plenty of space.

                                      Peace and tranquility in the heart of Normandy

                                      5 of 5
                                      Firstly, my family and I were quite awestruck by the amount of space in this gite. No "bijou cottage" this, it's on quite a grand scale with a massive communal sitting room overlooked by a “mistrels’ gallery” (in the regional style of the long farmhouse, or La Longère, apparently). It feels as if it's in the middle of nowhere. Well okay, it IS in the middle of nowhere, but a pleasant 15 minute walk takes you to the nearest village of La Fontanelle, a pretty, sleepy little place, with a shop or two and a very nice bar/restaurant where we had an inexpensive yet wholesome lunch on our first day. If you want “sights”, you have to get in the car, but there’s a big choice within easy reach, not least the world heritage site of Le Mont St Michel (you can beat the crowds from such a nearby base). Less well known but almost as impressive is Fougères with its massive fortifications. We enjoyed the local towns of Pont Orson and Combourg, both of which have lively markets. We spent our final day at Dinan, a vibrant fishing port that oozes charm. Highly recommended.
