Shared heated swimming pool.

From May to September there is a small cafe/pool terrace where you can have a night off and "eat out" or just sit and have a drink whilst watching the kids in the pool.

Free Wifi internet is available in the cottage and throughout the site.

Large gardens, play areas, toys, games and books to borrow, animals to feed, friends to meet... a great place for families with smaller children.

Further details

The pool is open from May to September and heated from mid of May to begining of September, (July and August temperatures reach 28 degrees and above depending on the ambiant weather )

For your peace of mind, our pool meets all French safety norms for safety fencing and water hygiene, with monthly checks from DDASS (direction departementale des affaires sanitaires et sociales)

The Brittany region

There is something for everyone to enjoy... We are ideally located in the pretty countryside of Ille et Villaine, where you can explore the many peaceful lanes, forests and canals by foot or bike, yet central to all historic places and towns of interest such as Le Mont St. Michel, Dinan, St. Malo, Rennes, Fougeres etc. For the kids, there are zoos, parks, aquariums, treewalking, canoeing, sand yachting, to name a few, plus we are only a 40 minute drive from the fantastic Emerald coast and Cote d'Armor with their beautiful beaches.


Through out the year, but especially during the height of season, there are many attractions such as traditional Breton dancing and festivals, colourful weekly markets, concerts and guided walks. As we live on site, we will be able to advise on "whats on and when"

Thank you for your kind review,
