The Experience

A late 17th-century farmhouse and its outbuildings have been transformed into two warm and relaxed gîtes by the talented Sue and Steve. They’re set in a small hamlet in flat farming country and although it feels remote you’re only 15 minutes from Saint-Malo.

If it’s raining, stoke the wood-burner and find comfy sofas, books, films and board games as well as a big screen TV; when the sun shines you have your own corner in the leafy garden for a barbecue and two bicycles to explore the surrounding countryside.

Find a welcome basket with sparkling wine, eggs, local cheese and bread; there’s also bakery a two-minute walk away. The nearest towns, Châteauneuf and Miniac Morvan, are less than ten minutes by car and have shops, restaurants and markets; cycle the back roads to the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel in an hour.

Reviews

This is a really special place. We returned for our second visit to the Gite de Jardin in June and spent a wonderful week there. The warm welcome from Sue & Steve, the comfort of the cottage, the thoughtful welcome basket and the beauty of the surroundings make for an idyllic holiday. The location is superb - close enough to visit places like St Malo, Dinard etc and also to reach lovely sandy beaches - and a quiet, peaceful garden to return to at the end of the day!

Sue, St. Helens

A lovely place to stay in Brittany. Sue and Steve gave us a warm welcome and are fantastic hosts. We will come back.

Bernhart & Barbara, Augsburg

We had a wonderful time staying at the stunning Le Gite de Jardin, and it was all very relaxing. It was in a perfect location where we visited some lovely places nearby all round. The gite had everything we needed. Trishy and Steve

Trishy, Hope Valley

We recently stayed in Gentilhommiere for one week. I'm happy to say we had a fabulous holiday in this superbly renovated and beautifully furnished home. Sue & Steve have created a wonderful place to 'be & relax' as well as a base to explore the region. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the garden listening to the birds and watching occasional visits by the local wildlife. The home is very well equipped and Sue & Steves eye for detail impressive. We have stayed in a number of Sawday's properties and this is amongst the very best.

Carole, Crich

We spent a wonderful week in La Gite de Jardin in early June. The apartment is beautifully appointed and has every facility you could possibly need. We particularly enjoyed eating all our meals outside at the table under cover but open to the secluded garden. The location is in a very private courtyard and you could see nobody all week if you choose, but you will want to talk to Sue and Steve who will help and advise in a very relaxed way. It’s midway between Dinan and St. Malo and therefore there are loads of things to do and see without travelling very far. You won’t be disappointed.

Trevor, County Wicklow, Ireland

We stayed in Gentilhommiere for 1 week with my sister and her husband, we were absolutely delighted when we arrived at this beautiful Gite. The house has been lovingly restored by an amazing craftsman, Steve, and the quality of soft furnishings, furniture etc. are first class. Sue and Steve are wonderful hosts giving lots of advice on places to visit and good places to eat. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and surpassed any we have ever had before. The area is very picturesque with plenty of interesting towns within easy driving distance. The very best of self catering accommodation

Lesley, Sunderland

Just arrived home from a wonderful stay in Brittany, La Gite de Jardin . We certainly found a gem the restoration of the old buildings was very special, a high quality of workmanship and love has been put into bringing these buildings back to life! They are superb and exceptionally well equipped, we wished we could have stayed longer but certainly hope to return very soon! Thank you Steve and Sue for your superb hospitality

Don & Judi, Cumbria

We can truly say our stay at La Binellerie felt like home from home. Everything has been so well thought through and our house was exceptionally comfortable with all you could possibly need. The gardens surrounding the property were beautiful and even provided us with the lovely sight of a deer sauntering across the lawn. Although the weather wasn't particularly kind there were certainly plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area. The owners Steve and Sue were most welcoming, helpful and delightful to talk to.

Glyn and Daphne, Melton Mowbray

Spacious and well equipped. The best gîte we have stayed in, friendly owners and nothing too much trouble.

Michael, Jersey, Channel Islands

This gite has absolutely everything anyone would need for a relaxing holiday. The attention to detail is second to none. The garden is an added bonus for both sun lovers and those who seek the shade. Really peaceful and ideally situated for exploring the area. Hosts are most welcoming.

Carole, Sissinghurst, Kent

What a gem of a place to stay. This is a beautifully restored cottage with a lovely garden. Our hosts had thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible including a well filled welcome basket. The gite was ideally situated with so many sites to visit in the locality that we were spoilt for choice.

Maurice, Leeds

Another lovely week at La Binellerie (Gite de Jardin). This place has everything you could wish for: a comfortable and tastefully decorated gite, great hosts and amazing places to visit within a short driving distance. It doesn’t get any better in France!

Mieke and Bert, Obbicht, the Netherlands

The house was lovely. Spacious and airy. Not at all like a cottage - more a mini-mansion ! Hosts are very helpful and enthusiastic for guests to enjoy their stay. Kitchen well equipped and local supermarkets have wonderful food - the fish available at SuperU is memorable. We ate in every evening since we had hotel stays on the journey. Lots to visit in the area although the towns are a little challenging to park in. The chateau and zoo nearby 'La Bourbansais' will delight children. A car is essential.

Michael and Anne, Woking

Lovely house beautifully restored by Sue and Steve, who could not have been more helpful as hosts. The garden is great for children and everything we needed was provided from kitchen equipment to a fully functioning BBQ to the welcome basket! The location is perfect for exploring the beaches and historic towns of this part of Brittany and the local village of Chateauneuf-d'Ille-et-Vilaine is very handy for supplies. Can't wait to stay there again!

Tim, London

A beautiful house with so much character. We had a fantastic week at La Binellerie. The house is well equipped and the large safe garden was great for the children. Lovely area of Brittany very close to beaches and St Malo. Would love to visit again.

John, York

A fantastic place, with wonderful hosts. The children loved the garden and all the outside space, and we loved the beautifully fitted home and the generous donations of home grown vegetables! Thank you to Sue and Stephen for a wonderful week

Steve, Hampton

The house for four people was delightful and full of the character you would expect from such an old building. It was extremely well equipped and comfortable. All the descriptions were very accurate. The large downstairs room stayed wonderfully cool during a very hot week and was an oasis of calm. We used the house as a base for cycling in each direction and managed to park the car for the whole week.

John, Bath

What a fabulous house. We really enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful house, beautiful garden. Many thanks to Sue and Steve for making our stay so enjoyable. Would highly recommend it.

Sue, Sandleheath Fordingbridge

We spent a very happy week at La Binellerie. The gite is exceptionally well equipped and very comfortable. The private outdoor space is lovely, with seats set out at various points in the garden. Everything is very clean and well maintained. Its location is perfect for visits to Dinan, St Malo, Dinard etc and we ate the best oysters ever at Cancale!

Sue & Mick, St. Helens

We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the comfort and the atmosphere of the house and garden. All in the house was perfect. The place is ideal for visiting a lot of attractions in Britany or just enjoying the closest beach. We would like to come again. Bea & Hansjörg

Location

The neighbourhood

Saint-Malo has all you need for water fun: surf, sail, sand kart or hire a sea canoe, and from here you can take numerous boat trips – a regular ferry service to the seaside town of Dinard takes ten minutes. There are numerous châteaux and gardens to visit within a half-hour drive, along with the medieval town of Dinan, which has half-timbered houses lining narrow cobbled streets, and the fishing village of Cancale, a must for seafood lovers.

Local points of interest from Sue & Steve Davison

  • La Binellerie, a renovated 17th century Gentilhommière and barns is situated in a peaceful, rural setting, in 1.6h of gardens and woodland. A perfect location for a relaxing holiday with family or friends.
  • Our nearest boulangerie is actually just around the corner! A small bakery which makes artisanal bread twice a week. The boulangerie in Chateauneuf is a 15 min walk, but we do have a couple of bikes for the uses of guests.
  • The nearest supermarket is at Miniac Morvan (10 min drive), which also has an excellent fishmongers, a delicatessen selling local products, and the usual bank, and Post Office. There is a market here every Friday morning.
  • We are just a few kms from the river Rance where there are numerous restaurants & bars at St Suliac, Pleudihen, Lyvet, Mordreuc, St Jouan. From the lock at Lyvet you can take a pleasant walk along the river to the medieval town of Dinan.
  • If you enjoy seafood then Cancale is the place to go, famous for its’ oyster beds. Here you can sit on the sea wall in the sun and eat a plate of freshly opened oysters with a glass of cold Muscadet! There is also a huge choice of restaurants.
  • La Binellerie is close to all of the main attractions in this beautiful area of Brittany, including Le Mont St Michel (the most visited place in France, after Paris), St Malo, Dinard, Dol de Bretagney, and Rennes, the capital.

Introducing

Sue & Steve Davison

Sue and Steve live in a little cottage next to their gites. They’ve lived here since 1996 and have spent much time renovating the properties – it’s a definite labour of love. Sue is originally from Leeds and studied music at the Northern College of Music, later becoming a private piano teacher. Steve works as a cabinetmaker – the cabinets, stairs, doors and windows in the gites are all his work – and has specialised in bespoke kitchens in the UK. In their spare time they have a boat and enjoy taking it out on the Rance river.
