We have run the business for 13 years, and brought our kids up in France. Brittany is a great place to live, the pace of life is a lot slower and there is so much to see and do here.
Mr Tim Blow purchased this chateau / country house in 2002
Most holiday rental properties are in the middle of nowhere, but we are on the edge of a large village, so you can walk into the centre in a couple of minutes. Having all the amenities of the village including restaurants and bars is a real plus for our holiday makers.
There is so much to keep the kids entertained on site, that you do not even have to go out everyday. Just relax with a glass of wine or beer while the kids entertain themselves.
We spent a long time trying to find somewhere for a family get-together for a 60th birthday celebration - there were 27 of us, aged from 7 months to 70 years. Wanted somewhere not too far from the ferry ports. We eventually chose Le Moulin de la Touche. The booking was well handled and easy, the owners Tim and Ruth were friendly and helpful. We arrived after a long journey from Scotland to be warmly welcomed by our hosts who were always on hand to help, but never intrusive. The cottages and surrounding areas were absolutely splendid, better than we hoped, including the whole family getting to see the otters in the river. The weather was disappointing, but the indoor playroom was a great and fresh bread from the village, together with Pizza Night were an added treat. We had never tried this before and it was the first time we had all spent longer than a day together, so we were worried it would not work, but our fears were unfounded, thanks to the lovely place and people which catered brilliantly for our wide age range - everyone loved it. Highly recommended. Thank you Ruth and Tim.
Usual rental period is from Saturday to Saturday, but could be changed with agreement from owner.
