“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'!!!

Excellent family Gite
We stayed here for a week in August. Excellent Gites, lovely sized rooms and well equiped with everything you could want for a home from home. The outsized area is amazing and our kids were free and safe to run around. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
There's lots to do within the local area so you will need to have a car as getting around without one could be tricky.
We will definitely stay here again. …
