Perfection in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of property rental has been considered-and exceeded-by Neil & Tricia at Le Helleguy.A picturesque, thatched cottage, set in amazing grounds with a glorious, heated, all weather pool, one cannot fail to enjoy tranquility yet have access not only to beautiful southern Brittany countryside but also to many places of interest eg.Carnac, Vannes, L'Orient- in less than an hours drive.So many stunning locations and not enough time for us, and our adult children to enjoy.We hope to return soon.Six of us, plus dog, by prior arrangement with our hosts being on hand if needed for advice, guidance &support organising riding, kayaking and vets for us. Gr floor double ensuite is great to offer privacy and for those with mobility impairments on stairs.just one step into large shower. We enjoyed regular outside activities available:table tennis, boules and football in the grounds and pleasant walks in the surrounding area...often finding history on our doorstep.Thank you both for being perfect hosts.We would highly recommend a stay here for a few days, week or longer.Can,t wait to return when there is a need for the log fire to be lit!Best time in France for many years...brilliant:)

Beautiful cottages set in a tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We visited with two other families during Easter 2015. The hosts were extremely welcoming and accommodating. The cottages are spacious, well equipped and well maintained. The grounds are fabulous, spacious and beautiful. There are plenty of outdoor garden games available and the pool was fantastic. The setting is perfect and we will be recommending it as a great holiday base to our friends and family.

Fabulous house and hosts

  • 5 of 5

You could not be made to feel more welcome here. Tricia and Neil are excellent, kind and warm hosts. What made this place special was the finishing touches they have put in place, from the huge and delicius welcome hamper, to the cleaning equipment, oil and balsamic vinegar! The pool is brilliant- warm and inviting, even if it is raining, with the telescopic cover. We cannot recommend this place highly enough!

A wonderful week at Le Helleguy

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed a week long stay at Neil and Tricia Young's picturesque location in Morbihan, Brittany. Our group consisted of 3 couples (all around 60yrs old) as well as another couple who were travelling with us in their motorhome. We rented La Chaumiere and were delighted to find that it was just as we expected from the photos and description we had read on the web site. It was accurately described and was spotlessly clean for us when we arrived. Tricia's instructions on how to find the gite from Quistinic were ideal and as we arrived after a fairly long drive we took advantage of the "Welcome meal" that Tricia had recommended. It was superb! and so good not to have to go to the bother of cooking when we were all tired.

Tricia and Neil were excellent hosts: always there if we needed any help but never intrusive. We particularly enjoyed using the cycles to explore the area and had a great day following the canal tow-path along the Blavet river to a delightful lunch at "Rendez Vous aux Pecheurs" - a recommendation from Tricia who also made the booking for us.

We would be more than happy to recommend La Chaumiere to our friends and others.

We enjoyed swimming in the heated pool even though the weather was a cool 15 to 16 degrees and none too tropical for June. We also appreciated Tricia and Neil permitting our friends with the motor home to have it parked there all week.

If we had to find a negative comment it would be that the kitchen was a tad too small when cooking for 8. There was really only room for one adult in there at any time but having said that, it didn't stop us producing some gastronomic feasts! Everything we needed was there to do the job!

The location of Le Helleguy suited us very well and we were able to easily travel to all the places we wanted to see with a maximum of 1hr 30mins driving - lots of sights were much closer than that.

Au revoir from 8 New Zealanders - all now confirmed francophiles.

We have recently returned from spending a week at Le Helleguy and already we want to go back. We stayed in La Chaumiere which is a beautiful, large cottage, which has everything you could want to make your stay effortless and extremely comfortable. We chose Le Helleguy for the pool and childrens play area, as we have a 3yr old, and were thrilled to find a large outside games cupboard with all manner of games to play. The retractable roof on the pool is fantastic. The weather was a little cool when we first arrived but it made no difference to the use of the pool, thankfully, as our boy couldn't wait to get in there. Entertainment was also provided for him in the form of Connie the resident dog, who was known as his "best friend" for the duration of the holiday at least. The play area is far enough away from the cottages so as not to disturb other guests staying in the other cottage, which is always a consideration for us (we still remember life before having a child!). We loved the private outside area for our evening bbq's and a relax, mulling over the days events. The gardens are lovely and kept impeccably. Trips to Lorient for the beach and Vannes for the market were easy drives and there is a good supermarket at Baud, just a short drive away. Unfortunately I didn't get to try out any of the beauty treatments on offer, but think that this is as good an excuse as any to return very soon to try them out. We had a fabulous stay here, and I'm sure future guests will love Le Helleguy and Tricia and Neil as much as we did.

Spring 2010

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous holiday we had in the La Chaumiere thatched cottage. The decor and style of the cottage is second to none and we have been in many cottages all over the world. Even on a warm spring evening we lit the log fire and enjoyed the ambiance of the high ceiling in the living room. The welcome pack contains so much food and drink you hardly have to shop again!! The cottage is very well equiped and contains many items you would normally have to go out to buy. Particulary the kitchen where it would be very hard to find anything missing!! Tricia and Neil were marvelous hosts - there when you wanted them and very helpful but not at all intrusive. The gardens are well set out and extensive. There are garden games for the young and older. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the patio having a glass of red wine after a hard days' sightseeing.

The cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside and lots of historic villages/towns/fishing villages. There is something to do for all ages.
