“Excellent break in the country”
Maison Philomene is a lovely spot in the countryside with great facilities and a fantastic house. We traveled as two couples with 2 children under 3 each. The house is so well equipped with all the baby gear they out out for us like cots, stair gates and booster seats. It is a wonderful large garden to play around in and a lovely swimming pool. The house is very attractively decorated and well finished and a great place to spend a fun week. The surrounding area has lots of nice villages, markets and lakes and I would definitely recommend it and happily go back myself.
“Holidaying with small children will never be stress free, but Maison de Philomene reduces it significantly!”
We booked Maison de Philomene for a "family honeymoon" consisting of us and our 14 month daughter, my parents, and my sister, husband and 2 boys aged 2 1/2 and 8 months. Communication from the start was fantastic with Adrian and Denise replying promptly to any queries we had, including some on the day we left the UK! When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and were pleased to find thoughtful welcome treats such as pastries from the local boulangerie, milk etc to keep us going for the day. The accommodation suited the small children perfectly with stair gates, highchairs, plastic crockery / cutlery, cots, toys (both inside and out), bath toys etc all being provided and in excellent condition. The adults loved the comfy lounge area and the kitchen was fantastically equipped for all our needs. Adrian and Denise responded quickly to any queries or problems we had (e.g. blown lightbulb) but were not intrusive in any way (you'd hardly believe they were only next door!). The garden area was lovely and again children friendly with the children loved the little house in particular! Despite entering Autumn months, the pool was used on a number of occasions and again, the toys provided for children were greatly welcomed. Anyone with children will know that a holiday with them is not so much a holiday anymore! But Adrian and Denise made our time away so much less stressful from start to finish, both in terms of communication and in terms of providing a safe, welcoming, fun filled home for a week. We loved both the house and having the chance to explore the beautiful surroundings of Brittany. Thank you!
“Truly the complete package for a brilliant holiday with kids”
You really cannot fault Adrian and Denise's attention to detail. After a warm greeting and a brief run through of essential information, we were left to discover all the delights of Philomene from the fridge stocked with pate bread wine coffee tea and milk to cupboards and toy chests full of games and toys to suit the tastes of children from 0 - 10. The rooms were all much larger than we had expected from the photographs and the 10 of us (4 children and 6 adults) never felt crowded in even on cool damp days spent indoors. The swimming pool was the highlight. Kept at a nicely warm 28C (86F), it was constantly welcoming even in average weathers. Beyond Philomene, there was enough to keep us amused within 30 mins drive the highlights being the prosperous small town of Pontivy and the Lac de Guerledan with its beaches, boats and cycle trails. A very successful holiday and we plan to go back next year.
“An exceptionally well equipped family holiday home in central Brittany”
This property is about a six hour drive from Calais, and we were surprised and delighted with the more than generous welcome pack that awaited us, along with a warm greeting from the owners, Adrian and Denise. The house is beautiful, with 4 ensuite double bedrooms, and is extremely well and thoughtfully kitted out. The kitchen is particularly well equipped and spacious, with good storage, and a sizeable fridge-freezer. Great thought has gone into the needs of young holiday-makers. Toys, both within the house and in the garden and for the pool were provided in great number, and for all ages. Baby and toddler equipment was also in abundance, with every thought for safety both within the house and in the garden and pool area considered. The property is idyllically situated in a remote hamlet, surrounded by cornfields, and is quiet and peaceful. Absolutely everything has been thought of to keep small children occupied and happy. You only need to go out to buy food. Although it is in a rural position, there are lovely places to visit, and our family particularly enjoyed a day at the nearby lake.
“Excellent family house”
A beautifully renovated Breton farmhouse. Excellently equipped for a family holiday in the peaceful Brittany countryside. Adrian and Denise provide a warm welcome to Maison de Philomene. The garden, pool and house were perfect for our family holiday. All you really need to bring are pool towels. Nearby are St Mayeux, Corlay, Pontivy and the wonderful (for wild swimmers) Lac de Guerledan. Book with confidence!
“You'll want for nothing in this beautiful gite, in stunning surroundings!”
We (6 adults, 4 children and a baby) spent an absolutely wonderful week at Maison de Philomene. Despite the extremely late hour of our arrival (approaching midnight), we were greeted warmly by our hosts and a crackling fire in the log burner. The welcome pack that was provided for us was packed full of delicious goodies and very much appreciated. The house turned out to be far more impressive than we'd imagined - it has been carefully and tastefully renovated to the highest standard with typically french furniture and accessories. The beds are extremely comfortable and the number of bathrooms (one attached to each room plus a downstairs cloakroom) meant that there was never a queue! What stood out to us most was the attention to detail - we were amazed at the extent to which our needs had been provided for. None of us had come across a better equipped kitchen and the amount of equipment for the baby was wonderful, from high chair and cot through to a vast amount of toys and feeding utensils. The icing on the cake at this gite was the garden! The huge garden (complete with trampoline, football goals, swing set and playhouse), woodland and swimming pool meant that we (and in particular, the children) rarely wanted to venture away from the house. The swimming pool was used daily and we were delighted to find the shed full of inflatables! The house is set in beautiful surroundings; very quiet and tranquil but within easy driving distance of some lovely towns and villages. We enjoyed visits to St Brieuc, Guingamp and Loudeac and there were good supermarkets within easy reach too. The boulangerie in Corlay was excellent. Lac de Guerledan was a lovely picnic spot, with stunning views, water sports and a beach. Maison de Philomene comes very highly recommended, particularly to those with children, and we found our hosts, Adrian and Denise, to be extremely accommodating and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The best review we can give comes from our children who were in tears at the end of the week because they wanted 'to stay in the house forever'!!!
“Really child friendly gite, with pool and house very well presented”
We went as a family group of 4 grandparents two parents and two children of 6 and 4. The gite was very spacious and very thoughtfully fitted out. The facilities were better than we thought they would work out and the owners who live next door were extremely help full with suggestions and support. We would recommend it as a location for a growing family.
Maison de Philomene offered absolutely everything we could ask for a week long stay for our extended family. Adrian and Denise were very accommodating with changing the configuration of the beds and were helpful in solving a medical emergency we had during our stay. The place itself is simply gorgeous and has everything we could ask for. The kitchen is well equipped for large groups, there is bags of space in the main living areas and bedrooms, superb bathrooms, everything done to a very high spec by Adrian himself and they are just next door if you have any problems. The pool is great and they have supplied a large range of pool inflatables which we used to the full. Lovely gardens to sit in too. Great, great holiday for us - would recommend Maison de Philomene as a high quality option for any large group.
“Beautiful house, peaceful location”
We had a great stay in Maison Philomene. The house is immaculate, beautifully furnished with a great garden and a heated pool. The kids spent hours swimming. Everything is really clean and well maintained. Adrian and Denise are helpful without being at all intrusive. The welcome pack was just what we needed after a long journey - the best we have ever had. The location is very peaceful and off the beaten track (although a famous Tour de France climb is just round the corner if you like cycling!)
“An impeccably clean well thought out place to stay”
The owners have done extensive interior renovations that only serve to enhance the ambiance of the house. A wonderful, well equipped kitchen. nice well appointed bedrooms and baths, excellent outdoor facilities and pool, and a very comfortable lounge and dining area round out a great place to stay.
