The Experience

Elizabeth and Matthew’s 18th-century cottage sits in three acres of garden on the edge of a small river valley and is surrounded by rolling countryside – a lack of light pollution makes it terrific for star gazing.

Breakfast around the large table in the kitchen includes bread, croissants, homemade jams, eggs from the hens, cheeses and charcuterie; the nearest restaurant is a 15-minute drive or you can stay in for delicious four-course dinners – aperitif, wine and digestif included.

Read or play games by the wood-burner in the cosy guest sitting room; there’s a kettle if you fancy a cup of tea. You can sit out in the garden, and children will love the swimming pool, swings and trampoline. You’re perfectly near to sights in both Brittany and Normandy and it’s a 45-minute drive to the coast.

Accommodation

Reviews

Lovely house in a lovely setting. For the less technical amongst us a simple map of the location from the village St George’s might be useful. Hosts were very welcoming and Matthew prepared a terrific Coq au Vin on the evening we arrived. Very comfortable room with good views of the garden and utterly peaceful. Good breakfasts with fresh fruit, cereals, croissants and baguettes. Would love to have stayed longer.

Fabulous! The perfect place to stay en route to or from Cherbourg. Lovely rooms, fab food, welcoming hosts. The perfect Sawday's!

Jacqueline, Bath

Many thanks to Elizabeth and Matthew for their warm welcome! We stayed one night on our way to Brittany and would happily have stayed longer if possible. A tranquil and beautiful house and garden, yet only 15 minutes from the motorway. Comfortable bed, well appointed bathroom, delicious dinner and breakfast the next morning. We will definitely return when next in the area.

Elizabeth and Matthew are so friendly and welcoming. I love the tranquility and the open space of the garden. My favourite bedroom is the Garden Room with the private terrace.

Nicola, Sawday's inspector

On the way to the Vendée you can experience this beautiful unique b & b. The hostess / host are very sympathetic and super hospitable. It felt like coming home. The garden room with our two daughters was incredibly good. Fresh and clean. With other guests we enjoyed the excellent dinner and breakfast. Nothing came short, we even felt "burdened", so we were pampered. That is why we chose to stay here this year again. Gently catch your breath and drive to the final destination the next day. Until July 2019 ...

Location

The neighbourhood

There are good local walks otherwise Les Touches is near to both Normandy and Brittany – the garden brook marks the two regions' boundaries. The nearest village with a shop and pharmacy is a five-minute drive, and it's a 15-minute drive to Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët for restaurants or to Saint-James, where you'll find the Brittany American Cemetery and Memorial. Fougères, which has a spectacular medieval chateau, is a 30-minute drive, Le Mont-Saint-Michel is a 45-minute drive, as are the glorious sandy beaches of Carolles and Saint-Jean-Thomas.

Local points of interest from Elizabeth François & Matthew Sebesteny-King

  • We are within 30 minutes' drive from the most visited tourist site outside of Paris, the UNESCO World Heritage site Mont St-Michel. It is one of France most beautiful Abbey and it would be a shame to miss a visit there. It is spectacular at night.
  • Parents with small children will be glad to learn that there entertainment for little people is not too far. The beautifully landscaped Champrépus zoo, with its children's playground and cafés and restaurant for parents to relax and little ones to play
  • You are coming with your family and do not want to venture too far to entertain your children, then try the Ange Michel amusement park to have a fun day out with the children.
  • For couples looking for a romantic escape, the medival castle in Fougeres will be appealing, you can enjoy a visit and why not Britanny's famous Bretons crepes only within 30 minutes from us.
  • The medieval town of Dinan is 45 minutes from us. You feel like you are going back in time while walking through it, with its wooden framed buildings, chocolate box cottages, restaurants by the river, with tasty traditional French food & interior design.
  • Let us not forget that we are in an area full of history, the D Day landing beaches in the neighbouring Normandy are all time favourites of our guests for day trips.

Introducing

Elizabeth François & Matthew Sebesteny-King

Elizabeth and Matthew are welcoming hosts and you’ll feel quickly at ease in their company. They decided to leave their hectic city lives behind for a slower pace of life. Elizabeth is Mauritian and speaks French and English fluently; she enjoys adding a subtle touch of her native cuisine to some of the more traditional dishes she cooks. Matthew still has a working life but bases himself at home most of the time.
