We had the most wonderful stay at Manoir Du Bourg. The property was immaculate and fully stocked with everything we needed for a family holiday. Derek & Joan are wonderful hosts who we looked forward to returning to every afternoon to chat about our day. Their knowledge of the area is superb and they always had sound advice on where and what do. Our holiday was made extra special by the delightful little dog who was staying with Derek & Joan who joined us every evening for games of fetch and cuddles. We wished we had booked two weeks as we were sad to leave but we will certainly be booking a return visit.
It is hard to adequately express how wonderful our stay was with Fiona and Bruno at La Channais!!! It was truly like staying in a perfect 'slice of heaven' in the French countryside. The lovingly and beautifully restored old stone house was comfortable, stylish and historically-sensitively updated with every comfort, convenience and amenity. Many of the furnishings were heritage items which suited the historic home and the owners perfectly balanced updated functionality with the historic nature of the home without compromising either. The photos on HomeAway perfectly reflected the property and cottage, so our expectations were met (and actually far exceeded!) completely. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and our host was readily available if we had any questions. The small hamlet in which the house was located was calm and quiet, but also well-located near conveniences as well as touring destinations (St. Malo and Dinard and particularly the picturesque historic town of Dinan only 20 minutes away!) The location allowed us to easily enjoy the beauty and sites of Brittany. The cottage was very well equipped, including a full complement of cooking implements (to which we can attest as we cooked 'in' several times and lacked nothing). Not only was the house itself beautiful, but the large garden was simply stunning, including a stone patio with outdoor eating and lounging furniture. There were also expansive lawns with flowers and blooming plants, making us feel like we were in our own private park! We recommend this holiday cottage without hesitation and would be absolutely delighted to return here.
