It is beautifully furnished, very warm and comfortable. Besides the kitchen Aragon has a large sitting room ,shower room and toilet downstairs and upstairs two pretty bedrooms ,one double and one with three beds, a large bathroom and separate toilet.
We wanted one of our gites to have every convenience for families with young children and if there is anything you especially require we will do our best to help. Cots and high chair are free.
The warm indoor pool, the play area and our menagerie of animals (donkey, pigs,chickens,ducks,sheep and goats) all hoping to be fed make this an ideal holiday--you don't need to go anywhere.

Ideal & safe for children or simply relaxing & getting away from it all. Indoor heated pool, helpful owners. Gites very comfortable. Plenty to do in the area. Have stayed here several times & intend to return.
We spent a week in 2 bedroom Hayloft in April. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable beds. living room and the kitchen provided well for weeks needs. The pool was great fun.
Jenny and Jacques are very friendly and great hosts. My daughters (3&6) had a thoroughly enjoyable week with all the animals, peacocks and Bruno the dog has made some friends for life.
I would advise day trips to Dinan, Dinard, St Malo and Mt St Michel.
We had a lovely dinner at Chez Mere Pourcel in Dinan.
A beautiful gite in a wonderful, quiet setting. Jenny and Jacques were very welcoming and helpful hosts. It was useful to have some baby equipment on site eg highchair, cot, so that we didn't have to bring these. Our little one loved meeting all the animals and we all enjoyed walks in the surrounding countryside. The gite is also within easy driving distance of the coast and several lovely towns and cities for days out.
Absolutely beautiful Gite. There was so much to do with our 2 year old like feeding the animals, swimming in the pool & playing in the playground. It was so lovely and Jenny was so welcoming, our daughter loved the chocolate chicken she had bought for her for Easter. For us, the Gite was comfortable, relaxing and everything we needed for a memorable break. We miss saying hello to the peacocks in the morning!
sympa tous ces animaux autour du gîte - Propriétaires charmants - voiture obligatoire -
gîte parfait -
The place and surroundings are just amazing and feel like a cocoon. Our daughter enjoyed taking care of the animals with Jenny and more generally the whole family had a great time in the pool.
Lots of amazing sites to visit around, and best of all, Jacques and Jenny's warm and joyful welcome!
We really spent a hell of a time. Thanks again to our wonderful hosts
