"A fabulous gite on the Rance River"
It was our first time in Brittaney and our first stay in a gite in France - and what a pleasure it was too.It was really spacious and had everything one needed for a self catering holiday. Located just out of the village of Pleudihen sur Rance, this ideallic property was really sunny with a south facing aspect and french doors that opened onto the garden. It was an extremely peaceful spot with loungers in the garden to enjoy at your leisure. It had a fabulously large bathroom with walk in shower which is a luxury in France. The bedrooms were located up a rather steep staircase and had lovely views over the countryside. Loved this little area of France with the village in walking distance and bigger towns of St Malo & Dinan, not very far away. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a self catering holiday.

We had a lovely summr holiday here, great for our five year old daughter , who loved meeting the resident goats .The garden and gite were spacious and real feel of the french countryside, with the benefit of easy access to the pretty coast resorts, the local ports along the river Rance, as well as all thebeautiful historic towns close by. Kate and Marc were very friendly and helpful and their relaxed approach made us feel very welcome.

"Great Holiday Gite in Britanny"
This gite was a wonderful base for our holiday in Britanny. The facilities are excellent, the gite is set in peaceful and beautiful surroundings and is within easy walking distance of both the town and the river Rance. Trips to Dinan, St Malo and other great places were easily accessible along quiet well maintained highways. This holiday met all our expectations and, despite the locations distance from our home in New Zealand, we look forward to a future visit.

"Beautiful Location with welcoming hosts"
Spotless gite, beautiful rural location. Close to St Malo, Dinan and Dinard. Excellent washing machine with built in clothes dryer function, very handy when travelling. Many places advertise clothes dryer and it is only a fold out rack. Excellent secure parking. A wonderful Boulangerie in the village. The owners are wonderful and nothing was a bother. Stairs to bedroom were steep. Environmental "pellet" heater was brilliant, press a button and you had instant heat, and no smoke smells. Sitting outside watching the sunset a real delight. Beach nearby. Plenty of nearby golf courses, DInard Golf Course had amazing views. Can highly recommend this gite.
