The Experience

To stay or to go? So much to do here, and so much to discover beyond! In rolling fields-and-woodland countryside, these cottages are perfectly placed for families. Breton beaches, adventure park, zoo, aquarium and Mont Saint Michel are all within driving distance; and there are free bikes and walks from the door. In two acres of lawned gardens, with trampoline, swings and slides, football and boules and fabulous heated pool, this sprawling row of farm buildings goes right back to the 17th century. Inside you have the best of country cottage living: thick walls, exposed beams, steep wooden stairs (in very old Les Hirondelles), cosy rugs on tiled floors. Bedrooms (upstairs and down) have fresh colours and simple wooden furniture; bathrooms are practical and spacious. A joy are the open-plan living areas where everyone can do their thing – cook, read, play. It’s home-from-home comfy with kitchens that are functional and well equipped. Chouettes has a wood-burner; Alouettes an open fire; rustic Hirondelles is the most compact. Susan loves children and is endlessly helpful. Come for a weekend – or longer.

Our family of twelve (three generations, including five lively children) rented Les Chouettes for a week. It proved to be ideal: the 2 acre garden (which is well maintained and incorporates a great range of equipment from swings, trampoline to boules) plus the heated pool were an ideal playground for the children (and adults!), the house was homely and spacious and we made good use of Susan's cycles, taking the disused railway track most mornings to collect large quantities of croissants and baguettes from the boulangerie in St Brice. In a nutshell, a great holiday venue for families.

very fine place indeed - everything one could hope from a Sawday place
