Newly renovated in a 300 year old barn the gites are stylish and modern but retain features of their former life. The living area is open plan, light and welcoming.
The gîtes are set in the coutryside within walking distance of the village centre, Mordreuc and coastal paths. Mordreuc has a beach and little port as well as a local seal who can be found sunbathing on the beach or jetty most days.
The gites are set in large grounds and the surroundings are tranquil and peaceful.
Le Bois gîte consists of;- Well equipped kitchen featuring electric cooker, oven, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave and toaster.- Large dining table- Spacious living area with french doors opening onto a paved courtyard- LCD TV and DVD player, stereo system- Wi-fi (included)- Off-street parking. There are 2 spacious bedrooms on the first floor in Le Bois - one with 160cm double bed, the other with 2 single beds which can be joined to make a 160cm double if required. Like many old Breton houses, the stairs are quite steep. There is also a high quality sofa bed in the living room which can increase the capacity of the gîte to sleep 6 people in comfort.
Le Bois has one bathroom with a large open shower. There is also an additional separate toilet to provide ample flexibility. Le Bois also includes laundry facilities with an all in one washing machine and dryer. Heating is provided by an ecological wood burner using compressed wood pellets and a heat exchange extractor system which captures and reuses heat that is jettisoned by standard bathroom and kitchen extractor systems.
Le Bois is accessible to those in wheelchairs as it was renovated to current French standards for disabled access. The wet room with a large open shower is on the ground floor and the living room contains a new and extremely comfortable sofa bed which converts easily and quickly into a bed for those who can't manage the stairs. Pure cotton linen and towels are provided.
The Local Area: Pleudihen-sur-Rance is a picturesque location on the banks of a river - La Rance. There are pretty coastal tracks meandering through the fields and along the tidal river Rance.

- Very Good
“Great location, beautifully fitted out and the downstairs wet room made it ideal for anyone with mobility issues.”
Very easy to book the gite, all the directions and instructions were spot on with a lovely friendly welcome from the owners. The gite is well equipped with light and airy decoration plus a sunny spot to sit outside with coffee or a glass of wine. Anyone with mobility issues would welcome the downstairs bathroom with its excellent wetroom and the unusually comfortable sofabed. This plus gorgeous sheets and towels makes for a great sleep. The location is really well suited to exploring the north Brittany coast as well as inland to Dinan and Rennes. We love food and wine and so for us it was ideal - the middle of the cider growing region of the Rance valley and an amazing range of restaurants with fantastic seafood within easy reach. In the village itself is an extraordinarily brilliant bakery and patisserie with everything baked on the premises by real artisanal experts. Definitely going back to stay again next year.
“Perfect, clean, well equipped and in a nice location”
We very much enjoyed our stay at La Touche. We rented the bigger cottage and it was perfect for our family of four with two bedrooms on the upper floor. You could also use the sofa in the living room if there were more of you. The house is very clean, recently furbished and well maintained. It was warm and very well equipped with all the things you would need in the kitchen a washing machine/dryer, hairdryer etc. It is in a beautiful location with a big and safe garden. Our kids loved playing outside and the especially appreciated the goats. The owners are very nice and very helpful in providing ideas for what to do. The small town is within walking distance and the beach as well and also there are lots of interesting sites to explore not too far away. We have recommended this place to friends and will hopefully come again soon. There are so many things to explore! The Gites could also be very nice for two families travelling together as it has to gites in the same building.
“A fabulous gite on the Rance River”
It was our first time in Brittaney and our first stay in a gite in France - and what a pleasure it was too.It was really spacious and had everything one needed for a self catering holiday. Located just out of the village of Pleudihen sur Rance, this ideallic property was really sunny with a south facing aspect and french doors that opened onto the garden. It was an extremely peaceful spot with loungers in the garden to enjoy at your leisure. It had a fabulously large bathroom with walk in shower which is a luxury in France. The bedrooms were located up a rather steep staircase and had lovely views over the countryside. Loved this little area of France with the village in walking distance and bigger towns of St Malo & Dinan, not very far away. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a self catering holiday.
“Fantastic gite, would not hesitate to recommend to other families.”
We loved it here! The Rance valley is a great place for a holiday, the gite was beautiful and the owners could not have been more helpful.
“Exceeded expectations on every level”
We booked after seeing the very positive reviews on this site, and everything we read turned out to be true - a beautiful, super-clean gite containing everything you need in a peaceful location, perfectly located near lots of castles, beaches and other activities. Kate is also the hostess with the mostest. Thanks for a great holiday and see you again for sure.
“Relaxing french rural retreat great base to explore region”
We had a lovely summr holiday here, great for our five year old daughter , who loved meeting the resident goats .The garden and gite were spacious and real feel of the french countryside, with the benefit of easy access to the pretty coast resorts, the local ports along the river Rance, as well as all thebeautiful historic towns close by. Kate and Marc were very friendly and helpful and their relaxed approach made us feel very welcome.
“Great Holiday Gite in Britanny”
This gite was a wonderful base for our holiday in Britanny. The facilities are excellent, the gite is set in peaceful and beautiful surroundings and is within easy walking distance of both the town and the river Rance. Trips to Dinan, St Malo and other great places were easily accessible along quiet well maintained highways. This holiday met all our expectations and, despite the locations distance from our home in New Zealand, we look forward to a future visit.
“Beautiful Location with welcoming hosts”
Spotless gite, beautiful rural location. Close to St Malo, Dinan and Dinard. Excellent washing machine with built in clothes dryer function, very handy when travelling. Many places advertise clothes dryer and it is only a fold out rack. Excellent secure parking. A wonderful Boulangerie in the village. The owners are wonderful and nothing was a bother. Stairs to bedroom were steep. Environmental "pellet" heater was brilliant, press a button and you had instant heat, and no smoke smells. Sitting outside watching the sunset a real delight. Beach nearby. Plenty of nearby golf courses, DInard Golf Course had amazing views. Can highly recommend this gite.
“Family reunion in Brittany”
We recently stayed for two nights at La Touché as we were visiting our daughter who is currently living in Brittany and were welcomed by Kate & Marc as one of their family. The accommodation was just perfect being a very spacious modern apartment, spotlessly clean and with everything you could want and more! a bottle of complimentary local cider was chilling for us in the fridge. We explored the local town of Pleudihen Sur Rance which is only a short walk away and very quaint. We also had a full days sightseeing around Dinan and Saint Malo and caught the local bus from town which was very easy, a fantastic! days outing. We would highly recommend La Touché to anyone visiting this area as it is a great location to explore from together with wonderful accommodation and Kate and Marc are amazing hosts.
i would recomend this to everyone who wants a lovely relaxing helpfull holiday and is also very well equiped for dissabled and kate is very helpful and lovely .
