About Joan crompton

My husband and I moved to France 10 years ago and have been running Le Manoir since 2002. The testimonials and repeat bookings speak for themselves. We are in a good location. Close to Dinan, St Malo and Rennes. The beaches are unspoilt and the roads a delight to drive on. There is so much to do and so much to discover that your days can be as full or a quiet as you want them to be.

The heated swimming pool is in an enclosed area. We have electric gates to the property which makes it a safe place for little ones. Come and stay and experience the delights of Brittany and Le Manoir du Bourg in St Helen.

Why Joan crompton chose Saint-Hélen

We bought this property in 2002 and knew it would make an ideal holiday location.We are in the centre of a small village, St Helen, yet we are very close to Dinan with its many restaurants, shops and leisure activities. Dinard , about 30 minutes away, is on the coast and has an airport serviced by Ryan Air. The picturesque town of St Malo is about 30 minutes away and is the closest ferry port to Le Manoir. The capital, Rennes, is about 30 minutes away. So we are in a great location. The beaches are quiet and unspoilt. Our local beach even has its own resident seal that is often seen swimming with the children. Its a great place for walking and cycling. We have a tennis court adjacent and a fishing lake just a few minutes walk away. Its just a minutes walk to get your daily bread.

Outstanding large homestead with excellent facilities and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had the family holiday of a lifetime at Le Manoir in August with 17 of us in total. There were 11 adults ranging from grandparents to twenty somethings and 6 children. The ample space and the excellent facilities meant that there was something for everyone from reading quietly to playing boisterous games in the large grounds or swimming in the lovely pool. The hosts, Joan and Derek, were ultra helpful in meeting our needs, telling us what to do and where to go and arranging for outside caterers to provide a splendid meal to celebrate the reason for our stay there. I cannot commend Le Manoir enough.

Beautiful place, perfect for large group of friends with children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Le Manoir as part of a group of 8 adults and 6 children (children ranging in ages from 18 months - 5), and it was perfect. The property was well maintained and had everything that we needed, the safety and security of the front gates and secured pool were brilliant for us.

There were plenty of activities near by, and the kids loved the pool (heated to just the right temperature even on a chilly May day!), the space to run and the outdoor play equipment.

Joan and Derek were great hosts - always there to help and make sure we had all we needed but not at all intrusive.

I would highly recommend the property for any larger groups looking to stay with children - hopefully we'll be back!

A special property with fabulous owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family have just enjoyed two magical weeks at Le Puits. Set in a quiet and secluded enclosed courtyard, the house is just lovely. The rooms are beautifully done and the kitchen well-equipped.

Great facilities for the kids (a 'no adults' TV room, heated swimming pool, table tennis, pool and lawn) made for a relaxing holiday for us all. St. Helen is minutes away from the stunning medieval town of Dinan, and many other great day trips. The local beaches are simply stunning.

Then there are the incredible hosts: Derek and Joan provided such a warm and generous welcome, and could not have been more helpful throughout our stay with their suggestions and local insights.

We left with many great memories and hope to go back. We cannot recommend this property enough.

A fabulous holiday - you must stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Le Manoir. We stayed in Le Puits and the accommodation was superb. Spacious, clean and had everything you needed and more for a self-catering stay. The gite complex itself had great facilities, a very warm outdoor pool with sun bathing areas, kids play area (slide and swings), games room, and a lovely little room filled with beanbags, books and games. The grounds are very safe giving you peace of mind to relax and allowing children to play safely.

Joan and Derek are so welcoming and are on hand providing you with enough guidance and advice on local areas, beaches, markets and shopping so you can make the most out of your stay. They make you feel so at home, nothing was too much trouble and this made the holiday feel so special.

The location is excellent, 25 mins drive from Dinard, St Malo and some other lovely French towns and less than 10 mins from the beautiful town of Dinan. You do need a car BUT driving is so easy, the location is well placed to get to all of the main sights of Brittany.

Words cannot describe how amazing this place is, if you are travelling as a family, couple or group it has everything! Don?t just take my word for it, book it for yourself, I have told everyone I know about this gem as I would have no hesitation in returning and really hope we do.

Thank you once again Derek and Joan for making our family holiday so special ?you do a great job and are wonderful people ? hope to see you soon.

The coastal seaside resort Dinard is only a short drive through rolling country-side and woods.
