About Linda Prentice
The property is owned by two couples who have been friends for over 40 years. We still live in England but spend as much time as possible in "our French house" which we bought to give the men something to tinker with in their retirement! They're still tinkering...
Linda Prentice purchased this Barn in 2005
Why Linda Prentice chose Lanrelas
We chose Brittany because we have been visiting for many years, ever since one of us had a pen-friend in St. Malo (and still does!) The scenery is so beautiful and there are so many places to visit- we still find new places that amaze us and so many are still quiet and unspoilt- but if you want hustle and bustle you can find that too. And then of course there is the food-superbe!

We had a very warm welcome on our arrival with a goody basket waiting for us. The barn is well equipped and very comfortable. We loved watching the House Martins and bats and listening to the hooting owls each evening.
Can highly recommend the restaurant in the village, the food is superb and the welcome and service is excellent.
We all had a very enjoyable holiday and it was a pleasure meeting all the owners. Thank you all for making us feel so comfortable and looked after.
A lovely barn in Lanrelas
A fabulous barn in a peaceful setting, for a family of six this was a very relaxing and beautiful place to stay, with everything you need in the barn including linen and towels. Very clean and well maintained. The owners were very friendly and always approachable to give good advice and tips. Would definately recommend.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. It was lovely to see 3 generations holidaying together!

The property is well represented in the photos and description. We were very pleased with the comfortable beds (firm!) and layout of common areas. The kitchen is adequately equipped but could use a few sharp knives. Our week included a free "canicule", so we did have to deal with the heat in the two upstairs bedrooms. However, the owners were very attentive and offered to set up a small pool to help manage the heat.
The only negative is that the distances to ocean, other towns, and destinations were inaccurate, usually by half (in other words, we found ourselves about twice as far from anything) than was stated on the website. Also, the owners should be careful what they say about "The French" in their instructional folder left on the premises. The French in our group were not pleased at the attitude.
All in all, a very pleasant place if you like quiet countryside and nice owners always ready to help. I recommend it!
Yes it was incredibly hot when Mary and her friends stayed- we all had trouble keeping cool! Not sure what routes they used when out and about, but the times quoted on the website are what it takes us to drive to those places- of course we are familiar with the roads now. It was lovely to have someone all the way from America!
La casa está perfectamente equipada, muy limpia, amplia y la vez acogedora. .
Hemos utilizado la casa como punto de partida y descanso para desplazarnos al norte y sur de la Bretaña. Perfecta ubicación para este fin, a 40 minutos de Renes y próxima a Dinan, Dinard, Jocelinn, mont saint Michel, saint malo, Cancale..,a una hora y poco de Carnac y Lorient...nosotros incluso subimos a Normandía (Omaha Beach)...
El descanso está garantizado en sus confortables camas y la tranquilidad y silencio que aporta estar en el medio del campo pero a tan solo 1 km. de Lanrelas.
Al disponer de una habitación de matrimonio y una de dos camas en la planta primera, ambas amplias y bien decoradas al estilo rústico con toques modernos, hemos estado muy agusto con nuestros dos hijos pequeños. Nos sobraba incluso una habitación más en planta baja...
Sus propietarios son muy hospitalarios y atentos.
Mantienen la casa muy limpia y acogedora.
Totalmente recomendable. Ha hecho que nuestro viaje a la preciosa Bretaña fuera fantástico.
Gracias Linda por tu atención.
