Relaxing woodland retreat

  • 5 of 5

From the drive into Ty Bois we were in French paradise, the property itself is well equipped and comfortable and if it wasn't for needing to buy food you could stay here all week and not see a soul.

The dogs loved the woodland to run through and the pond to swim in and we ourselves enjoyed the pool.

Its ideally located to visit the sights in and around Brittany and is close to some fabulous dog friendly beaches.

I would recommend this property for anyone wishing to get away from it all and enjoy pure relaxation and for dog lovers.

Fantastic property , going home rested and refreshed

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and very well equipped, waking up to the sound of birdsong, tranquil and peaceful, no hesitation in booking again. Thank you for the welcome pack supplies and comprehensive guide to the house and local information. We tried the Cheval Blanc in Baud and had a fabulous lunch there.

Okay but not perfect as previously described.

  • 3 of 5

Lovely property set in fantastic grounds but cleanliness wasn't the best. Half of the lights didn't work and heated pool was cold. Great for dog lovers travelling with their pets.

Owner's Response: We have never had problems with cleanliness before. I am sorry that the house was not up to expected standards. I have spoken to the team about your concerns and in the future they must take extra care. We have replaced the light bulb in the living room that wasn't working. The pool is kept at a minimum of 29 degrees and the temperature can be adjusted if required.

Wonderful Property in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful tranquil break with either young children or dogs then this is the place to go.

There are woods to explore with pathways, swings and seats dotted around, a lovely pond with little fish and a boat if you fancy taking having a row, there is a heated, covered plunge pool with a lovely adjoining seating area, the house itself is fully equipped with everything you could wish for - it really is an amazing find

We have flatcoated retrievers and always holiday with them, never before have we found anywhere that you can just open the door and let them go off to safely explore, swim and play to their hearts content, I am already getting asked for details of the property from members of the flatcoated retriever forum who have seen the holiday photos.

In addition to this, there is access to local British people who manage the house on hand for any queries you may have

Besides popping to the local village for provisions we just relaxed and did very little (we were too content to move) however on the days we did motivate ourselves we found a lovely beach (Pleuharnel) a wonderful lake Lac-de-Guerlain and went shopping in the town of Pontivy, all within a 50 minute drive

If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind where you can be in your own space walking in the woodland, rowing on the pond, taking a dip in the pool or sitting just listening to the birds chattering away, and have every home comfort to hand, then I would fully recommend this property

A fantastic property in a picturesque location

  • 5 of 5

A great property in a really nice setting. We spent our time (two relaxing weeks) between exploring the local villages and chilling out on the veranda with a nice cold drink.

The house is extremely well equipped and when we were not eating in one of the fine local restaurants, we had some great BBQ's in the sun. The pool is ideal for a mid afternoon cool off and the woods proved a hit with our Jack Russell.

The local village is also well equipped in terms of shops and bars and there is no need to go any further should you not wish to.

This really was one of the most relaxing holidays I have had.

Even better in reality

  • 5 of 5

As described in the title, this place was even better in reality than the photos and description suggest. The location is absolutely beautiful. It is completely peaceful and tranquil. The only human beings you will see are the farmer and his wife, who occasionally come onto the field next door to steer the cows! Their is a lovely little pond at the bottom of the garden complete with rowing boat and huge dragonflies. There is path all around the wooded area for the kids to go exploring. The house itself is lovely and the décor is a skilful balance of rustic and contemporary. The are two modern shower rooms and two comfortable bedrooms. The downstairs has a spacious open plan layout. There is a good selection of DVDs to watch and a small library of books and there is English freesat on the TV. Although the pool is on the small side, it is perfect for the kids to chill out in after a day out. Despite the relative isolation of the place, there is still plenty to do in the surrounding area; good walks and bike rides, go-karting and 'Kingoland' amusement park ( it's no Alton Towers mind!) and 30 minutes to the coast. The local town of Plumeliau provides all the shopping amenities you will require. There is also a really helpful English couple, who live locally and manage the property on behalf of the owners should you need any assistance. I can't recommend this place highly enough, and it's not too far away either, less than 2 hours from St Malo.
