What a fantastic place, exceeding our expectations with the gite having so much space and being so well equipped-we needed nothing else.

What a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from l'ecurie after a week with our Daughter her Husband and two of our grandchildren(one .3 and one 6 months. The accommodation was perfect,the pool just right,and the amazing collection of animals and birds just top it off,the 3yr old fell in love with the Black Swan, the only slight down side,but does not distract from 5 stars is the dawn chorus of peacocks, now we left the best to last,our hosts,Jenny and Jacques they were lovely and so helpful and nothing was to much for them,We would not hesitate to recommend this to any family,in fact we have already recommended it to friends.it was great

Owner's Response: It is with great pleasure that we share everything it is with great pleasure that we welcome guests to share our special slice of Brittany .The animals the swan the lovely setting. Our guests are great to meet and it is with a fair amount of sadness when they go , perhaps especially for our young dog Bruno who adores children and the horses and donkey having to do without their carrots!! The best is when we see you again.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at this gite. The accommodations were everything we could have asked for and we ate dinner in front of the fire in the kitchen each night. The farm is so charming and my daughter was in heaven. She was even able to feed the animals with Jenny and loved every moment there. It was truly a relaxing week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much Jenny and Jacques!

P.S. Lorenzo sends his regards to Bruno!

A wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband I recently spent a lovely holiday at Lesnen Petit Bois. Also in the party was my 23 year old Son, and my two stepdaughters aged 12 and 14. Jenny and Jacques were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in L'Ecurie which was well equipped and very comfortable. The highlights for us were the animals who we all enjoyed feeding and the swimming pool, which provided a fun and relaxing end to the day. It was also lovely waking up to the sound of the black swan honking, and the sight of the peacocks and goats strolling around the grounds.

We took day trips to St Malo, Dinan, Rennes and Mon St Michel all of which were within easy driving distance of where we were staying. The weather was mild for October, and we spent the evenings playing board games or watching DVD's in the Gite.

WE enjoyed ourselves so much we have booked to visit again next August and are looking forward to long summer evenings sitting round the BBQ.

Thank you Jenny and Jacques, see you next year!!

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure having you and meeting your family. The animals will certainly miss having you especially Paco the donkey and Billy the goat! We look forward to having you next summer and hopefully meet your daughter as well.

Le domaine est magnifique et notre fille de 2 ans et demi a adoré est entourée d'animaux, nourrir les cochons, les chèvres, l'âne paco, etc... Nous avons également apprécié la piscine couverte et ses jeux. Le gite est agréable et très bien équipé. Un grand merci pour votre accueil et à bientôt. Alexandra LAURENT

We have just returned from staying at Lesnen Petits Bois, our Gite 'Ecurie' was delightful and in a wonderful woodland setting. We loved all the animals that belong there and the history of the buildings. Thank you Jenny and Jacques.

Owner's Response: It was great having you and your extended family from Holland. Bruno is missing the attention and the horses, ponies and Paco are missing the brushing and carrots.

A wonderful idyllic setting with lovely animals.

  • 4 of 5

The property is clean, comfortable and has great outside space for al fresco dining and barbeques. The animals are lovely, the peacocks are a wee bit noisy but you get used to it. We explored Becherel, Mont St Michel, Nantes (Ile des machines is amazing), Dinan, Dinard, St Malo and also swam in the indoor pool (nice temperature) and wandered about the grounds feeding the animals and soaking up the tranquility. Jaques and Jenny are lovely and the bottle of cider on arrival was much appreciated. We will be back! xx
