We went as a large family group ... including our grown up children, their spouses and their young families ... so ages ranged from 4 months to 60+.
Manoir de Bolu was just perfect … very clean, comfortable and superbly well presented and equipped. The very friendly owners, Chris and Sue, seem to have thought through all the details an extended family might need … from baby equipment (sterilisers, cots, high chairs, monitors and so on) to play equipment for older children (trampoline, slides, swings, loads of inside and outside toys) and fun stuff for the adults (table tennis, pool table, boules, badminton, books, videos, UK tv and so on). Not forgetting the huge garden and the outdoor pool which everyone enjoyed! – even in May, as it was heated. Bikes/helmets/child seats are a plenty … brilliant for the morning ride into Le Quillio for bread and pastries (depot de pain about one km away).
For us the holiday was mostly about spending quality time together and with the facilities the Manoir had we didn’t feel the need to travel around much … but we did go to nearby Lac de Guerlédan (children enjoyed the ‘beach’), to Pontivy for the market and a galettes/crepes lunch and to the beautiful old town of Dinan.
There were many more places we could have gone to … and apparently the nearest coast is about 30 mins away … but we never made it there as there was so much for everyone to enjoy at the Manoir. Maybe we’ll get to go to the coast and those other places the next time we stay at Manoir de Bolu.
