"A cosy and relaxing holiday"
The perfect gite for a small family with a lovely log fire for those cold evenings. Judi & Graham are extremely welcoming and helpful, any problems encountered with the gite were dealt with immediately. Our son especially enjoyed picking the fruit from their trees and spotting all the local tractors.
We found plenty to see and do in the area, including La Bourbansais (chateau & zoo) which is great for kids of all ages. There is an aquarium in St Malo. Cancale is a nice place to go for a meal. Of course the main attraction is Mont St Michel and even with a two year old in tow, it was a great day out.

"Relaxation in idyllic surroundings"
Our holiday in Ardilloux was a memorable experience. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home and relaxed. The surrounding countryside and picturesque hamlet of Ardilloux are wonderful. We were met by the owners, Judi and Graham, who couldn't have been more helpful. A welcome basket of local produce was fantastic.
La Lune is a very comfortable accommodation, supplied with all essentials for a happy and relaxing stay in rural France. It was very clean and well maintained and provided ample space for four people. We explored many places of interest and were supplied with helpful information from Judi and Graham, which made our visits even more special.
We also thoroughly enjoyed the produce from local markets and restaurants.
We very much look forward to another visit and are confident that a holiday, in whatever season, will be equally as comfortable and exciting.

"Very welcoming and friendly"
We enjoyed a lovely week at la lune. It is in a very pretty area with lots of lovely places to visit. I would say St.Malo and Mont st Michel are a must. The owners were first class hosts nothing too much trouble they were great. We would definitely go back again.

"Great cottage, wonderful location & first class hospitality!"
We have stayed in the sister cottage Le Soleil 2 years previous and enjoyed our holiday so much returned here again in 2012. The cottage is well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, oven, fridge etc and basic household goods are also supplied i.e. washing up liquid, detergent, toilet rolls etc. The owners who reside in the neighbouring cottage are fantastic, welcoming and completely accommodating! Nothing is too much trouble! A beautiful and very delicious welcome basket is provided and clean fresh towels and bed linen. We travelled with two little children aged 2 to 3 and the location is just perfect for long walks, relaxing in the garden or trips to visit the nearby horses/chickens. We felt very reassured and considered the village to be safe, friendly and picturesque. St Malo is approximately 45 minutes drive, however, the local village bakery is wonderful for fresh croissants and homemade bread. There is also a local supermarket. We will be returning again and recommend this gite for anyone wanting to experience a French style way of
Iife in beautiful surroundings.

"Perfectly tranquil location, lovely hosts, beautiful gite."
We returned in June to La Lune for the 2nd time and couldn't wait to get there to relax again in the beautiful, peaceful hamlet of Ardilloux. The location is not only peaceful, being surrounded by lovely countryside, but ideally situated for discovering the stunning Brittany coast - we could return to Dinard again and again. Judi and Graham are friendly but not intrusive and extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area. If there is anything they don't know, they will find out for you. We hope to return soon to this idyllic spot.

"An idyllic retreat in rural France with excellent hosts - we have returned again and again"
A French gite in a very small hamlet, that we have visited summer and winter. Very rural but within easy reach of beautiful countryside and coastline. The accommodation is very comfortable and the hosts friendly and always ready with helpful information and advice.
