Beautiful holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Le Clos du Rouvre for five nights over my husband’s birthday and had a lovely time.

We travelled by car from England to France – the location was easy to find and the journey was about 5 hours from Calais.

Once there, we were amazed about the beautiful property, the scenic garden and swimming pool. On our arrival, the owner welcomed us very warm and showed us around the entire property and was really helpful during our stay.

The Farmhouse, cottages and grounds are all well-maintained and clean.

We can recommend this property as a romantic getaway, but as well for a family holiday and will definitely return next year - we could have easily filled 10 more days with sight seeing, beach trips, etc.

A great week - plenty places to go without driving miles with 5 children under 10

  • 5 of 5

Property and swimming pool lovely. Large garden which was perfect for children.

If you are a large party with some single adults - you need to know there is no ‘family’ bathroom as such - just ‘en suite’.

Worked fine for us - but could be an issue.

Simone, the owner, very friendly and helpful.

A good holiday!

Large family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the start of the booking process both Alan and Simone looked after us perfectly. Clear & open communication, no hidden costs and regular dialogue over the months leading up to our stay.

Just like the owners, the place is welcoming and relaxed. Staying in the main farmhouse suited us perfectly. 14 in total including 6 adults, 4 teenagers and 4 younger children there was plenty of space for all. It really does offer something for everyone. Peace & quiet for elderly parents, lots of local amenities for Mums & Dads and freedom to run and play all day around the grounds for the children.

Location was perfect for us - spent so much time in Dinan & St Malo along with the local villages...we soon became regulars in one or two local bars and supermarkets. When we didn't eat out, we enjoyed BBQ's in the sun around the huge outdoor eating areas and even invited new friends over where we easily accommodated 25 people around the tables.

Very sad to leave this wonderful farmhouse, new friends we made, the beautiful scenic area and the French way of life....we will not hesitate to return.

Thank you both for looking after us...

Le Clos de Rouvre

  • 5 of 5

Arrived and met by Alan and Simone who showed us around the property. At the end of a lane and very peaceful. I went with my family (10 adults & 7 childfen under 6) for my 60th birthday. The farmhouse and bedromms were far more than I expected. The sand pit and swings and slides were perfect for the children. The pool also had a lock on the gate so there were no problems. The children just went outside anld played wherever without any watching from the parents. The large table for eating al fresco coupled with the large barbecue made the self catering part of the holiday very easy. As we were at the end of the lane we had peace and quiet throughout the holiday. Not a sound at night.

We were 25mins from St Malo and the beaches. So much to see in the area. Dinan,Dinard, St Malo and many other places too numerous to mention." wseeks is not enough.15 mins from the nearest supermarket. Try the live lobster (about £10 each ) and Cotes du Rhone wine(£1.60). 8 bottles a night is more than enough!.

In all, a holiday I thoroughly enjoyed. Assisted by a lovely inobtrusive couple who gave us any advice we asked for.

What a great time and place.

Thanks again to Alan & Simone

Stay away from this one!

  • 1 of 5

We recommend NOT rentning this property. Not worth the price. Outdated and poor layout and location. The main house smells of mold and one of the bathrooms and adjacent bedroom reeks from septic tank problems. The picture of the pool is deceptive -- the "pool" is above ground. The owner does not stand up to the issues and, 8 weeks later, we are still awaiting repayment of our deposit (despite the owner having promised to repay deposit and also having strict deadlines about payment up front).
