"Fantastic place to stay!"

La Danvoliere is a great place to stay with all the home comforts you require. The barn has been beautifully renovated and is set in pituresque countryside. We had an old man and children with us and the barn was suitable for all ages, from having a barbecue in the evenings or cooling down in the pool. There are lots of local places to visit and St. Malo is not too far away. A wonderful holiday!

"Tres Bien - The best of France"

Stayed at Danvoliere for 4 nights with my girlfriend. It is an area I know well and it is a very relaxing place to spend a break. We had several trips around the local area and enjoyed coming back to the Barn house to the log fire and a bottle of Red.

"An excellent property for a relaxing holiday"

La Danvoliere is a very well appointed and spacious barn conversion set in quiet countryside. The sheltered patio is ideal for a sunny breakfast or lazy afternoon. Plenty of pretty towns, villages and countryside to visit in the region. Superb market on Wednesday in St HIlaire du Harcouet (c25 km) and local Super U has a brilliant fish counter.

"Great place, excellent facilities"

The home is well equipped and tastefully decorated. It is spacious and in a quite rural location. Supermarkets are only a few minutes drive away, and there is loads to see in the area.

"Fantastic property, lovely location"

What a beautiful barn conversion - spacious, 4 bedrooms, huge lounge & kitchen. I have stayed in a lot of self catering holiday homes in the past & this is up there with the best & the kitchen is the best equipped yet. The surrounding area is excellent with lots to do - the Medieval towns of Fougeres & Vitre are great and its a lovely trip to Mount De St Michel and St Malo. Great value too.

"Beautiful Barn, lovely area!"

Service was very good, with people easy to contact if there was a problem or if we had a question. The property was lovely, in a beautiful quiet location, and had a good range of facilities- such as a bbq, table tennis table, bikes and football table (however, they could do with being better maintained, as could the pool.) The local village of Levare has a bakery which sells excellent produce; and in the town of Gorron, there are bars, restaurants, and supermarkets - both Levare and Gorron are within easy reach.

A welcome pack was available on our arrival, with bread, wine, beer and cheese.
