About David Judd
We love the Brittany region and decided to purchase our dream home in the area. This is our second home and we are gradually putting our own stamp on it although you will find it is primarily traditional and it has all necessary equipment for a lovely relaxing stay.
David Judd purchased this House in 2007
Why David Judd chose Cotes-d'Armor
If you want to stay in a rural village location but not too far away from the coastal beaches and other sightseeing attractions then this is an ideal place to stay
What makes this House unique
The house is in a small village surrounded by countryside on your doorstep as well as a local bar and not too far away from towns and the coast for diversity. We have a folder full of many recommendations from us and guests that have stayed here over the last 10 years.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
Very clean, spacious inside and out in a lovely area
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this property. As a family of 6 (4 young kids) we need loads of space within and outside the property and this delivered. The kitchen is very well equipped and gives the at home feel.
Area is quiet as expected in a rural area but there is a well stocked Supermarket just 5 mins drive away and also plenty more in Moncontour 10 min drive away. The local pizzeria Le Kaban makes the best pizza.
Property is well located for activities in nearby St Brieuc with beaches at Plerin.
I recommend and we hope to return
Many thanks for your kind words on this review and we are really pleased you had a lovely holiday while staying at our property.
Overall a lovely stay !
Met on arrival by the lovely Mino and her husband Michele who told us everything we needed to know and let us know they were over the road should we need them .
The house was well equipped, our only complaint was one of the beds were very uncomfortable.
The location was perfect and the children made use of the bikes riding down to the lake each day.
Our only issue that would stop us from returning is constant barking throughout the night from neighbouring properties .
It's such a shame because we truly loved the house , people and location .
This is a county house so people should expect working dogs but for us personally it was an annoyance .
The property is in easy reach of many attractions and there's a supermarkets two minutes up the road .
Overall thumbs up !!
Thank you for the very constructive comments. We will address the uncomfortable mattress issue.
Further we have involved the local Mayor who had the neighbours dogs moved away so hopefully that will not arise again.
All the very best
Exceeded our expectations. very well equipped with all you would want in a holiday home.
The property was more than adequate and exceeded all expectations.
The kitchen was very well equipped, perfect if you prefer to self cater rather than eat out all the time.
The bedrooms were all a good size (the 4 that we used) and the beds were suitably comfortable. It is a bonus having 2 ground floor bedrooms and lovely downstairs shower room too, for those who can't manage stairs although the property access does have a few steps or like us, walked around the garden to the back door for those who can't manage any steps
The living room has a good sized modern flat tv and UK freesat, plus a hifi for some background music and 2 good sized comfortable sofas.
Dining seating for 8 around a large dining table.
The added bonus of bikes meant we didn't have to take ours, and a small pool table to keep the kids amused.
The garden was large enough and secure for the children to play plus a lovely seating area to enjoy alfresco dining and a few bottles of 'vin'.
The village is well located with many attractions and beaches within easy reach. It also has a fishing lake in the village that is open at weekends if that's your thing for a mere €6 per day.
I could go on for ever but must stop somewhere. All in all we would not hesitate in returning in the future.
Finally we must say that Dominique, the caretaker who lives opposite was lovely, very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Thanks again for letting us stay.
David Smith & family
Thank you very much for such a kind and full review. This is our second home and we love visiting it too with our family so it is equipped accordingly. We are adding broadband in September 2016. Again many thanks for the lovely review which reflects what we want to achieve for all guests
Un agréable séjour au sein de la Bretagne dans une sympathique maison !
Nous n'avons pas été déçu par la réservation de cette agréable maison. Les chambres y sont spacieuses et confortables, le jardin est calme avec son joli patio. De plus, la demeure est idéalement placée entre le nord et sud de la Bretagne. Les visites, randonnées y sont nombreuses. Nous avons passé des vacances à la hauteur de nos attentes et nous sommes rentrés avec des étoiles plein les yeux. Nous espérons pouvoir revenir très bientot. Belle prestation !
Ruime vrijstaande woning met grote besloten tuin.
Mooi huis, goed onderhouden en van alle gemakken voorzien. Uitgebreide inventaris. Ruime besloten tuin met stukje terras in de schaduw. In de directe omgeving is niet veel te doen maar het ligt erg centraal in Bretagne. Heerlijke vakantie gehad.
Neat and clean house in a beautiful surrounding!
We have had a very enjoyable stay in Plouguenast, it is a very quiet place and it was a relaxing time for us here. We are a couple with two with young children and three friends and stayed for two weeks in July/August.
We believe the house is just situated perfectly as it is situated in such a small quiet place with in the evening no single noise that will break the peace. But aside from that, all activities around you are within or just over one hour driving. Draw a one hour circle around the house and you have much more to do than you can do in two weeks.
The house had more space than the interior photo's suggests, so keep that in mind when you watch the photo's.
Will you ever met a friendlier caretaker? She and her husband will always give you the feeling you are very welcome if you have a question. They will want you to come in their home to talk and not staying outside, just those small things will feel you so welcome. And she can speak English a bit also.
And what do you think about having a nice neighbor who are just like your own granddad and grandma? One of our kids kicked a ball in their garden (its the neighbor or the right side of the house if you stay in front of it, the villa just in the direction of the village center.) I'd go with my kid to them to get the ball back, we get our ball back, but not without a scale of plums and a pleasant conversation!
Conclusion: this home was so well worth the money that we think about returning next year.
The village has the 3rd oldest Church in France
