About Penny McClure

Since we started renting out our gîtes in 2006 we have aimed to provide well equipped and comfortable vacation rental properties that we would enjoy staying in ourselves.

Why Penny McClure chose Plessala

La Fontaine Rouillee Gîtes offer you a choice of high quality self-catering holiday accommodation that has been carefully renovated to retain original Breton features, whilst incorporating the comfort, facilities and attention to detail that you would expect to find in personally maintained vacation rentals in Brittany.

La Belle Maison is especially popular with couples seeking a tranquil country retreat with space to spread out, however it can also easily accommodate four guests and is suitable for small families.

You will not be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage during the winter period and couldn't have had a more relaxing time.

The property is located in the beautiful rural Plessala area within Britanny, with beautiful country views. We enjoyed a lovely walk to a nearby mill on one of the sunny, crisp, winter mornings.

The cottage is equipped with everything you require. I particularly enjoyed cosy nights in front of the log burner!

You will find beautiful villages and towns in the area that offer lovely restaurants with French cuisine.

The owners, Penny and Ray, are extremely accommodating and welcoming.

As usual our stay at La Belle Maison was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have always been made to feel so welcome by hosts Penny and Ray, and that nothing is too much trouble.

The pretty traditional cottage is a real home from home, everything you could wish for is provided, and the setting is so peaceful - a lovely place to unwind.

The local area is fascinating, beautiful rural surroundings, historical towns and villages to visit and really good restaurants to try.

We would recommend this gem of a gite to all.

Beautiful house in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

The gite was just as advertised. A lovely stay in the beautiful Breton countryside, but central for main Breton sites.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had the absolute pleasure of staying in this lovely cottage and meeting Penny & Ray on our recent trip to France. The cottage is a true delight. Spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. Its warm and spacious and extremely comfortable. Penny & Ray were so helpful with the local area and imenities, especially when we needed a doctor for our son. This area of Brittany was lovely. Even in the colder weather we found plenty to do and explore. The nearby villages have everything you could need and are located very close by. The booking process and communication was the best we had experienced. Penny was very fast and efficient in processing our booking. Honestly, this place has left a lasting impression on us and a highlight of our trip. If you are travelling in this area I would highly recommend this beautiful and charming cottage and the surrounding countryside.
