The bedroom upstairs was modern and clean, the bed was a little creaky and the mattress a bit thin so uncomfortable for one of us. There was an area to BBQ with a charcoal BBQ available to use. Our host gave us champagne and honey which was much appreciated. Thanks for a nice stay Marius.

The location of the property is ideal. The drive from the ferry port of St Malo was very easy and the property is also within easy reach of the nearest town, it is basically one straight road for roughly 10 minutes, the town has everything you would need including restaurants, play park for young children and many shops and bakery's. The house itself exceeded our expectations. The house was fully equipped with every utensil and came with a washing machine and tumble dryer which were easy to use and essential for all the wet towels from the pool! The beds were all very comfortable and the house is decorated very warmly and feels very cosy and comfortable. The location is very peaceful and quiet with the odd car passing during the day. The garden and pool are fantastic. The pool is nicely heated and the garage contains enough comfortable chairs and sun loungers for all the family. The lawn was lovely for the kids to play on and very safe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone travelling with family and small children. We are already talking about booking next year. Thank you very much, Adam, Lizzie, Poppy and Isabelle
