"We were blown away by the beauty and tranquility of this French farmhouse."
Booking our stay at La Danvoliere was simple and easy. Our holiday required little planning as the owners of the property provided us with all the information we needed about the farmhouse as well as the local area. The farmhouse itself was beautiful especially the bedrooms which were very spacious and all individual with lovely finishing touches. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and again spacious. The outdoor pool was a huge hit with our children who spent every spare moment in it. We loved the peaceful location but also enjoyed family days out. During our stay we visited the historic towns of Feugeres, St Malo and Dinard as well as Ange Michael where we discovered an excellent theme park for the children. A highly recommended holiday for all the family.

"Lovely house with lots to do"
A very good house with plenty of room for the five children in our party to spend time indoors on a rainy day. The kids loved the bikes in the games and spent hours on end cycling with minimal supervision because the house is located on a secure site with minimal traffic.
There is also lots to see in surrounding towns. Fougeres castle and town are a definate must see.

"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.
