The property is an old Breton stone cottage which has been sympathetically renovated to a high and luxurious standard whilst still retaining its French charm. The cottage has electric heating throughout and a working wood burning stove in the comfortable, spacious lounge - making the property ideal for out of season use as well as enjoying the warm Brittany summers. The rooms are all light, airy and spacious, with the large fully equipped dining kitchen, which seats 6 very comfortably, including an LCD TV (UK satellite channels / French digital TV channels), DVD player. The kitchen has a patio door which leads to the front garden where there is a cast iron marble patio set ideal for 'al fresco' breakfasts.The large rear garden has very pleasant outlook directly onto the Brittany countryside and is separated into a landscaped area with garden furniture and a barbeque for the long summer evenings and a turfed area which is suitable for children to play in.
We found the cottage very comfortable and warm and very well-equipped. The beds were very comfortable and everywhere was lovely and clean when we arrived. As there were just two of us we had ample space with a choice of bedrooms and the kitchen was massive with all mod cons! The owners would appear to have thought of everything. The only drawback for us was that the stairs were quite steep but that was probably just our old bones! The garden is lovely even in the autumn and there is plenty of garden furniture in several spots throughout the garden. The surrounding area was ideal for getting out on bikes as it is quite flat and there are some lovely villages in the vicinity. We had loads of information about where to visit, where to eat, where to shop and were never short of somewhere to visit. I would recommend the cottage to friends, especially those with young children, as there was even a stair-gate at the top of the stairs!
This property is very tired, damp, dirty and needs some care from the owners, this includes the Garden area.
I would not recommend a stay here.
Just returned from the cottage and I could not recommend it enough. Very well fitted out with modern appliances and the wi-fi was great for our teenage daughter (what did they do before the internet?).
Beautifully set in the French countryside but only a short drive away from several fantastic beaches and other tourist attractions within easy reach as well.
All in all highly recommended and if we were returning to the same area on hoiday this would be the first place on our places to stay list.
We spent a very relaxing week at this cottage in Aug 09. The cottage was as described and the facilities were all very high quallity. The cottage was very comfortable and quiet and the very large garden was exellent for our two young children to explore. It provided a good base to explore Brittany with good road access to St Malo, Dinan and Jugon. Good safe beaches were found nearby and many markets were explored throughout the week. A car would be an absolute nessecary to be able to explore the local area as the distances to the local facilities are considerable, however this does provide plenty of peace and quiet. I would thourougly reccomend this property to anyone.
We found this cottage to be in a quiet location, but very close to all the interesting places. The cottage was very clean and tidy and exactly as described on the website. The owners were very helpful in a great many ways and catered for ALL family types, even down to small knives and forks for the younger members of a family. I have already recommended this cottage to our friends and relatives. All in all a very relaxing holiday.
We spent an enjoyable and relaxing week at the cottage which we found to be clean and accurately described on the website.
There was plenty of information available at the cottage with regard to the surrounding area, restaurants,supermarkets and places to visit.
Had lovely meals at L'Auberge de l'Ecu at Jugun les Lacs only 5 minutes down the road.
Situated in a very peaceful area with lots of lovely walks and handy for the Brittany beaches.
We have already recommended the cottage to friends and family.
