For couples and families, adults and kids…
From casual pavement cafes to superb Michelin starred world class restaurant. For traditional Breton fayre, try Sarrasin gallettes.and a mug of local cider. Jean Marc and Lawrence are the proud owners of our nearest restaurant which provides casual food in a casual atmosphere. A favourite restaurant with many of our visitiors is La Cour Verte where you can watch as your choice of local meat is roasted on an open fire . Non meat loving options are available too! For seafood lovers Cancale is a must. The pretty coastal town is dedicated to fabulous restaurants selling the very best seafood in the world..
Markets are still a hugely popular way to shop in France and the quality of the produce is superb. Get a true taste of local life hustle and bustle, discover scrumptious cheeses and salads, taste the local produce or take the weight off your feet and enjoy a coffee and a croissant whilst people watching,
Find a really original souvenir to take home. Rooting around a depot vente or antique shop gives you an insight into other people's lives with the added bonus of being able to take something back with you..
Sand and Sea
We're an easy drive away from Brittany and Normandy beaches, with sparkling clear waters and golden sands that stretch for miles.
Close by on the flat sands of Cherieux, you'll find top class sand-yachting.
From pony rides for tiny tots to superb adult treks out across the Bay of Le Mont St Michel or take a canter across the sands at sunset Mont St Michel glittering on the horizon as hooves chase the waves.
Exploring Brittany by bicycle is just lovely. The speed of travel really suits the tranquil environment and gives you chance to see things that you could otherwise miss. No need to bring your own as we hire bikes.
Picking up something different from a market stall or local shop is great fun. Our kitchens are well equipped, so you can enjoy preparing delicious meals at home while on your holiday.
No visit to France is complete without a trip to one of the stunning chateaux and there are plenty around to explore. Combourg is the most famous in the area and has a lovely lawns for picnicing.
Watch out for deer running through the nearby fields.You might spot foxes and even wild boar!
The unspoiled rural location is wonderful for bird watching. You don't even need to leave the garden to see buzzards, kestrels and even barn owls.
The local zoos are fun for all the family, with picnic areas and play areas for the kids. The Eco Musee in Rennes has a great selection of rare breed Breton animals and often has talks about local farming which are fun and interesting.
St Malo aquarium is one of the best aquariums in Europe. You can sing in a yellow submarine and watch in awe as a shark swims over your head.
Share in the wealth and magic of one of the stately homes in the area. La Bourbonsais is a favourite of ours.
A great collection of reptiles and a superb hands-on experience with enormous tortoises
Grab some culture and learn about the history of the area. The medieval museum in Dol de Bretagne has great displays.
The area is perfect for walking. The Ville Cartier forest is truly magical and gentle meandering along the pretty country lanes is a delightful experience.
A popular sport in the area, passes can be bought at the tackle shop in Pontorson. Carp seem to be a favourite.
The area is renowned for the golf courses. Our nearest is at Les Ormes. Kids can play by the pool or play crazy golf, mum can relax with a cocktail in the sun, while dad heads off for a round.
Whatever it is that you love doing on holiday, you're pretty sure to find it nearby.
When you arrive you'll be given a visitor's pack crammed with up to date information about the area and all the stuff there is to do here, and whether it's a reservation for a romantic dinner for two at a great restaurant, directions to the best out of the way sandy coves, or a list of feeding times for our chickens, your nearby hosts will be happy to help.

"lovely... so relaxing!"
the loft is great if you want to relax, enjoy Brittany and have a really lovely place to stay for your holidays! we were pleasantly surprised when on arrival we were greeted by the hosts Wendy & Darren who looked after us right throughout our stay - there when we needed them and let us relax in the enclosed garden when we wanted to enjoy the sunshine. at the loft you get a few bonuses - an open plan living space (if you have children there is a great little bunk room!), roll top bath, open terrace overlooking corn fields, Juliet balcony overlooking more open countryside, private garden and also a communal garden. we enjoyed a night to where they put on a little bbq and we all brought something along which was a nice opportunity to get to know some other people staying in other gites and also the hosts. at first we thought it may have been a it far out to explore the region though it really wasn't and being near good highway links we had a few days of travelling around and of course visiting St Mont Michel which is around 20minutes away. another bonus was that it was ideal for our little jack russell who was safe in our private area and was able to roam around from the loft to the garden! all in all a great place to stay and we would definitely consider a return visit!
