“Very welcoming, lovely facilities, loved every day of our stay.”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2012

Would definitely recommend staying here for the welcome given by Neil and Tricia, the lovely setting, and the great facilities. I would not hesitate to go there again.

“High quality accomodation, with a superb private pool.”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2011

We stayed at Le Helleguy in August 2011 with our 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. The layout of the accomodation was just right, as it is split into 3 different appartments. Being set back off the road it was very safe for the children to run around, and they just loved the private swimming pool which had a 'telescopic' cover for use at night and on cooler days. Also, nothing was too much trouble for the hosts Neil & Tricia Young, who went out of their way to ensure we had a perfect week.

“Le Helleguy is a wonderful property in every way and we cannot recommend it highly enough”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2011

We rented both cottages with family and have had a wonderful time. The cottages are perfect for two families holidaying together but offer a degree of independence and space, if required. They are both extremely well equiped, spotlessly clean and spacious - real home from homes. The heated pool has a retractable cover which enables it to be used as both an indoor and outdoor pool - perfect for the variable brittany climate. The surrounding area is beautiful - glorious rolling countryside and very peaceful but not far to drive to the coast for excursions. The owners are so helpful too. ALL IN ALL GREAT!!!!

“60th Birthday / Family Holiday”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2011

It does exactly what it says on the web site! No need to worry about what you have booked and how you will feel when you arrive, it will meet your expectations! We were 5 couples plus a baby and we took both cottages and the accomodation was great with rooms to spare. The large pool was clean and immaculate and the moveable roof meant it was great to use in any weather. A car is essential. The owners were very helpful and friendly so you can't go wrong if you book Le Hellguy.

“One of the very best cottages I'v evey stayed in.”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2011

From the warm welcome on our arrival to our leaving a week later nothing disappointed. The owners have gone out of their way to make this the very best holiday location. The cottage was immaculate with everything you could hope to find. The grounds and pool were superb. With the owners on site, but unobtrusive, any queries were answered instantly. Would recommend this excellent accommodation
