About Donna Thain

Our names are Donna and George Thain. We are a husband and wife team who have given up our careers as a chef and a nurse in the UK to live in France and run this high quality gite complex.

Donna Thain purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Donna Thain chose Cotes d'Armor

After many years of holidaying in Brittany we decided to give up our careers in the UK to 'live the dream'. We love the tranquillity of this rural area and the French culture.

What makes this cottage unique

This gite has access to over an acre of stunning gardens to explore and use for recreation. We have been told by many that they are an attration in their own right.

We also offer an additional catering service so you can relax in the comfort of your own gite while the proprietor , who is a qualified chef cooks for you , ideal if you want a drink ( no driving) or if mum and dad want to pop the kids to bed and have a meal without needing baby sitters.

I can't believe this property is ever available

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We booked a bit later than we normally do and that meant a much smaller choices of houses to look at. The Old Bakery looked lovely in the photos so we were hopeful, but the owners need to post more photos. This place is postcard stunning.

The house, the gardens, the residence - the adjoining fields.

Having rented a number of places over the years, you arrive and expect the odd pot and pan, but this place was so well equipped. You didn't need to think if something was there, you just opened the drawers and cupboards and it was. It wasn't all cheap and cheerful from the pound shop either. The furniture was comfortable and the indoor and outdoor eating areas lovely. The shower doesn't drizzle and the water is piping hot.

Plus so much to do for the kids - bikes, badminton, boules court, swimming pool, darts, ping pong, croquet, Frisbee with all of the equipment plus a number of areas in the garden to sit in or escape to and various chairs and loungers a plenty. We had lovely weather but still used a couple of the many boards games and DVD's available.

The owners are lovely too, daily smiles and welcomes, nothing they can't help with or advise on. Local markets, everything reachable for a day trip and village close enough for a cycle for the Sunday market.

I can't understand how this property was still available for us, but I thank you fellow HomeAwayers for leaving it to us.

Fantastic gite set in lovely grounds in the beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent 2 week stay in the Merlin Cottage gite. It was very well appointed and we had everything we needed in the gite. The pool was a firm hit with the children. There is also an amenities barn with games, DVD's, badminton sets, boules sets etc to keep you entertained in the beautiful gardens. You can even have use of the bicycles should you want to explore the countryside by bike. The gite was very well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. The location is tranquil however you can get to the supermarket within 15 mins by car. The owners Donna and George are English and were brilliant and very helpful. We would highly recommend this for a family holiday or one if the other 2 smaller gates for couples.

Superb gite in an enchanting tranquil setting .

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a tranquil relaxing and enchanting stay in France then your stay with George and Donna will be one you won't regret . We were a family of 3 adults and 4 children . The fire was extremely spacious and comfortable . The gardens and pool were magical . George and Donna were very friendly and obliging . The surrounding areas were so quiet and the villages were beautiful with lots of markets to visit . Thank you George and Donna 😄
