Location description from owner

The Brittany region

The delights of the French way of life can be summed up in one word, Brittany. Brittany offers eight hundred miles of grand rocky coastline with scores of bays and little fishing villages. The enchanting countryside is dotted with giant granite boulders and wild meadows on the moors, thickets and forests in a gently rolling landscape. It is the buildings that give a region its soul, and in Brittany, you can find it in the megaliths, calvaries, castles, manor houses, countless chapels and old villages. All of them bear witness to Brittanys eventful history and wealth of traditions. Brittany was, after all, home to the enchanted Forest, was where Merlin lived, and where corsairs sailed to the new world. It is in western Brittany that Breton culture remains most evident. In Quimper, and in the Pays Bigouden, crèpes, cider, traditional costumes and Celtic music are still a genuine part of the Breton lifestyle. Vannes, Dinan and Rennes, the Breton capital, have well preserved medieval quarters where half-timbered buildings cover markets, shops, crèperies and restaurants. The ancient ramparts and cobbled streets in the river port of Dinan are well worth a visit, and fans of Breton music head for St Brieuc in September for the music festival. Dinan sits on the river Rance with the houses of the old town clustered together behind the ramparts. St Brieuc stages the popular Breton rock festival in summer with a host of internationally renowned artists.The walled port of St-Malo on the Côte d' Emeraude recalls the regions maritime expertise, while the remarkably intact castles at Fougères and Vitré are still a reminder of the mighty border-fortresses that protected Brittanys eastern frontier before its final union with France in 1532. Holidaymakers are enticed to Brittany by its magnificent array of seafood such as shellfish, oysters, scallops and many tasty varieties of fish. Brittany is also famous for its farm produce such as salt meadow lamb, poultry and pork meat products. Other specialties of the region are wafer biscuits and butter cookies. However, Brittanys proudest addition to the great cuisines of the world has to be the crêpe and its savoury equivalent the galette – these can be found all over in any of the typical Breton crêperies; along the roadside or in the centres of old towns where visitors are often welcomed with a traditional cup of cider. Long, rugged coastline, vast bays of glorious beaches, and a secretive, almost mystical interior is the lasting impression of Brittany. This most westward region of France, where the Bretons speak their ancient language and carry on age-old traditions, always seems a little out of step with mainstream France, but the many attractions welcome visitors in their thousands year after year.

“Five stars doesn't quite seem enough...”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2016

What a fantastic week! The owners were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful The pool was amazing! Nice temperature and lots of fun inflatable toys and floats available. The garden was just perfect... So well equipped for lots of fun for the children and a big open space for the adults to play rounders once the children were in bed! The barn with the dart board, pool table etc and children's toys was great fun and was certainly a place that the children often wondered off to! The house.. Wow. Beautiful. The owners attention to detail was incredible and all the little details really made the holiday. For example the welcome pack (various food, drink, teas and coffees). Very kind. The location was perfect. The house and garden itself felt safe for the children to wonder around freely. In just 20/30 minutes you could be in Pontivy (where there was a huge supermarket, a lovely town centre, a beautiful river and what appeared to be a huge market). Whilst there we went to the local go karting place that was advertised everywhere which was so fun, and only a little competitive! We also visited the local lake at the place called "Beau Rivage", such a fun day out and will definitely go back. We had a lovely week in The Maison in Le Quillio and will definitely return in the future. Thank you Sue and Chris for such a special week & of course for the beautiful roses that we can't wait to see bloom next year!

We had a fantastic holiday here and have booked up for next year! Excellent facilities, beautiful location, friendly hosts and exceptionally clean.

“Perfect for a holiday with friends and our young children”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2016

We rented both properties for a week as a group of friends - 8 adults and 8 children all under 10 years old. It was perfect for us. The adults had plenty of room & time to relax and catch up, while the children ran freely and played safely in the huge garden. They loved the play equipment in the garden (especially the massive trampoline), while we all enjoyed the pool table & table football and took advantage of a well heated and gorgeous swimming pool. The pool temperature was kept high which allowed us to enjoy it even on slighter cooler days - not always the case when you book a 'heated pool.' The property is stunning to look at and be in. It is also very well equipped with real care and attention to detail. We didn't need to bring much at all as there were games and toys for the youngest guests, inflatables and floats for the pool, DVDs and video games and everything we could possibly need in the kitchen. We were reluctant to leave the property for a few days and spent the early part of the holiday in the garden and pool. Once we did venture out, we found stunning villages, towns and beaches all within a short drive. The owners were welcoming, there for anything we needed, but also really unobtrusive and left us to our own devices. All in all, a great holiday that suited our needs perfectly. We would all love to return and repeat the holiday in the future.

“Fabulous”

My family and I have just returned from a lovely week at the Manoir de Bolu. Before we arrived we were provided with a list of all the equipment which meant we were able to travel much lighter. On arrival the house was spotlessly clean, a lovely welcome package of food and drink awaited us and two of the bedrooms were perfectly set up to cater for my sons (a travel cot in one room and a bed guard in another). Chris and Sue were there to welcome us and it was great knowing they were on site should we have any questions or problems (which we didn't). The house is beautifully furnished and is stocked full of toys, DVDs, cooking equipment, crockery, glassware etc that is was like being at home. The pool is lovely and warm and fenced off so we had no worries about our little ones finding their way in there without us. The garden has ride on toys, table tennis, table football, trampolines and climbing frames that we barely wanted to leave the premises. When we did we found so much to explore in the surrounding area to suit our group ageing from 2-71 years old. We had a great week. Sue and Chris were the perfect hosts and I would thoroughly recommend a stay at the fabulous Manoir de Bolu.

“Perfect for families”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2016

We stayed in the Grange and loved it. We had the whole place to ourselves as the main house wasn't booked that week, which was great for us. Kids loved playing with all the toys in and out of the house. We spent a lot of time in the outdoor pool which was lovely. Chris and Sue were very helpful and even made a call for us regarding the next part of our trip, as our French is awful! The House was very well equipped and there wasn't anything we needed, that wasn't there.

I would recommend this holiday whole-heartedly. Good location, excellent facilities, superb accommodation, superior equipment.

“A superb holiday house, particularly for families with young children"”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2015

Our family includes five grandchildren: one five year old, three three year olds and a one year old. We have been taking an annual holiday as an extended family for many years and this has been, by far, the best one we have had. Everything you see on the website is as good as it seems or better when you actually experience it and I have to say that the attention to detail and care that is shown by the owners, Chris and Sue, is second to none. Everything is immaculately clean and well kept, with the largest array of facilities for children that you could imagine. I can honestly say that we were never short of something to do with them, whether it was riding bikes and a range of other kiddie vehicles around the extensive, smooth, tarmac courtyard, picking fruit in the orchard, using the immaculate pool, playing table tennis or having a game of ball on the massive field. We enjoyed using the excellent range of bikes provided and were able to access the amazing Rigole d'Hilvern cycling/walking route that runs through the attractive, quiet village of Le Quillio, along which our five year old grandson happily cycled nearly six miles only a couple of months after learning to ride a bike without stabilisers. We took his bike from home, which was a good move, as he was a bit too small for the bikes provided. The attractive Brittany coast proved to be a relatively short drive away and Dinan was an interesting and attractive place to visit for the older members of the party. We used the Portsmouth - Cherbourg fast ferry, which worked out really well for us, as we combined this with a hotel stay in Cherbourg on the way down and a hotel stay in Portsmouth on the way home. To finish off this review I would just like to mention how welcoming and helpful Chris and Sue were. They have clearly mastered the art of being friendly and available whilst not imposing their presence on you, and they have immaculate standards for equipping, maintaining and cleaning their outstanding holiday accommodation.

“Memorable stay at a fantastic location.”

As a family we rented Manoir House and attached cottage. We were a large party of varying ages and literally ALL of us were catered for. Quiet surroundings (for the oldies!) and tastefully decorated rooms...nothing spared, even a welcome pack of food for those not able to get to the shops before arrival. Bikes,books,Pool table, tavle tennis and best of all a pristine swimming pool for the teens. Everything a toddler could wish for...trollies, trikes and toys galore, plus highchair, stair gates, arm bands for the pool, a "safe" bed to sleep in and much much more! The owners, Chris and Sue went out of their way to answer all our questions and attend to all our needs. They even gave me a Birthday present as it was a 70th Celebration week.. My husband and I will definitely return...perhaps on our own next time!

“Idyllic family gîte, everything you could need for the whole family! 11 month twins in utter toy & exploration heaven!”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2014

Having looked at a few gîtes we decided Manoir de Bolu looked ideal. On arrival we were completely bowled over by the complete attention to detail not only in decor but with equipment and facilities not only for the 3 adults in the party but my 11 month old twins. Travel cots with oodles of covers, quilts and a lovely touch of a teddy to greet the babies was a delight! They didn't know what to do with themselves when they discovered the toy box in the comfortable living room & had everything out immediately! We stayed in the Grange and it was wonderful! Beautiful kitchen with more kitchen utensils, cutlery and equipment than we have in our own homes! It was literally a case of "I wonder if there is.." Opening a drawer or cupboard and there it was! We were able to enjoy the lovely heated pool in September such bliss! Sue and Chris are just wonderful! Friendly and so helpful with any queries but completely unobtrusive to your stay. Lovely people and a lovely holiday! Thank you so much! Highly recommend Manoir de Bolu!
