"Outstanding Standard & Location"
Our party of 15 (adults, teenagers & kids) thoroughly enjoyed a 2week family break, staying in both the MARIE and MADELEINE cottages. The quality of the accommodation was outstanding, the extremely large garden was beautifully landscaped and incorporated plenty of activities for the kids, the large heated pool was kept at the perfect temperature and extremely well maintained. The owners Dave & Carolyn were great, striking the perfect balance of being attentive and helpful whilst keeping a respectful distance, leaving you to enjoy the PERFECT HOLIDAY... The countryside location was ideal for relaxing but only a short drive away from larger towns. Overall quality and comfort was fantastic.

"The Gite's, grounds and Pool were very well maintained,cleen and as good as we had hoped for after a long drive."
The Gite's were well maintained, very cleen and all we had hoped for, all the showers worked well and the beds are comfy.
TV,DVD and dishwasher all worked as they should.
There was plenty of room inside and out to seat everyone, and the grounds had plenty of activities for us all, pin pong,basket ball,badminton,and plenty of stuff for the pool.
The owners were a lovely couple and we only say them from time to time, unless we called them and they were always happy to help.
It was remote enough to have peace and make a little noise and supermarkets and towns were no more than 10 minuets drive.
We would definitely go again.

"Home from home"
David and Carolyn couldn't be more helpful or friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. The property was perfect, very comfortable, had everything you needed and was situated in an idyllic setting with lots of garden & countryside around it. The weather was good most days & we even got to use the pool which was brilliant.
The walks were good for our dog who we took with us & all the restaurants/bars/accomodation were dog friendly which was ideal and much better than the UK. There was lots of small villages in the surrounding area, but it was also easy to go a bit further to the coast or medieval towns like Quintin or Quimper which were well worth the trip.
We also found that wherever we went the locals were very friendly & would pass the time of day or help with directions, even though our french was almost non-existent.
The only downside was that several bars/restaurants had closed due to lack of custom, but that could have been because we stayed quite early in the season. However the one's we did use were brilliant & can recommend the grotto at Cani Huel.
