Quiet with lovely grounds, This was a beautiful garden spot. Our host greeted us with beer as he finished up readying inside the house. Each room had a different decor but did not look over staged. Good workable kitchen,

I felt our host was near if we needed him but not so near if we didn't. He also brought us red=tipped lettuce from his garden and a few cherries a neighbor had gifted him.

Lovely location peaceful and quiet, without being remote. House with a 'wow' factor

  • 5 of 5

Nice 4 day break, house as described by a peaceful river, close to Peillac village (approx. 5 minute drive) and Rochefort en Terre (awarded village of the year 2016, approx. 10 min drive).. our trip was beginning of October.. Alain was helpful and pleasant a good host.. the house is well presented, clean and well equipped, impressive living space with wood pellet heater, modern kitchen, 2 good shower rooms and 4 bedrooms (linen and towels provided clean and fresh).. Internet is a hit and miss affair but not important to us, so no problem.. we were left to our own devices no interference, and no rush to be out by a certain time.. 5 out of 5 is fair and honest, have a good time ..

A beautiful house, in a splendid setting close to town but outside town and quiet. perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days here-- we are long time VRBO/Homeaway renters, and this is without a doubt the best place we have seen in 15 years renting.

The house itself is spacious, very nicely decorated and it feels very much like a home away from home. Lots of small touches to make the house comfortable. It is not the bare sort of place one so often encounters in holiday rentals.

The location is superb ---3 km outside Peillac. Easy to run into town to the bakery, or to the cafe for a coffee. The locals at the cafe greeted us each morning with a "bonjour" and a handshake. Malansac is just 9-10 km away, with its splendid Super U supermarket -- which has really high quality food ( cheese, fresh fish, fresh vegetables).

Alain, our host, was cordial, quick to help ( with restaurant recommendations when we asked for help, and for arranging bike rentals so we could bike along the beautiful Nantes Brest canal. One of the very best hosts we've ever had.

Superb place! Reasonsble price! Great location. Wonderful house and host.

Owner's Response: Des hôtes que nous aurions aimé recevoir plus longtemps tellement leur charme nous a séduit . J'étais triste de les voir partir si vite , c'était un moment d'échanges très riches et très authentiques . De grandes qualités humaines , une rencontre qui nous laisse d'excellents souvenirs .

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Easily the best gite we have stayed in! The attention to detail is immediately obvious - the owners have created an exceptional holiday home. Thought has been given to outdoor relaxation with the provision of sunloungers, table, chairs and BBQ. We found the property immaculatley clean, well maintained and very well equipped. (From a female point of view - the quality of the soft furnishings, including bed quilts, is amazing for a rental property). The boat and fishing were a welcome bonus for our boys - as was the endless entertaiment of catching frogs! The (antique ?) wardrobe in the living area holds a surprise second only to finding the entrance to Narnia! ;) a very innovative use of old furniture!! The owners were extremely friendly, helpful and informative. The river did not actually come up to the house, as in the pictures, due to silting which is to be sorted out this autumn. Nearest supermarket is 10 mins away in Malansac, although the village shop is unexpectedly well stocked. The village has a friendly atmosphere and we were made welcome. We enjoyed 2 trips to the Monday market in Questembert. Nearby Rochefort en Terre is worthy of it's status as a Plus Beaux Village. We had a thought provoking visit to the Musee de la Resistance Bretonne in St Marcel. Our best 'find' was the restaurant 'Chez Bernard' in St Martin sur Oust - Moules Frites mmmmmm! We were the second booking for this gite and highly recommend it - the only place we have stayed, that we would consider returning to!

Oh! and we had the priveledge of watching a whole family of otters foraging and then going back to the river for a swim!!
