“Autumn break”
Reviewed 10 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Great location, great house, perfect for two couples.
And a fantastic welcome from Thierry, who took great pains to ensure our enjoyment.
The house was warm (even for October) and plenty of instant hot water.
However, the only improvement we could imagine is the bed and bedding:
For us, the bed was hard and we would have preferred duvets as opposed to blankets.

“Tranquility in the North”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We arrived in the beautiful town of Cancale to a warm and very helpful welcome from Thierry. The house was clean and spacious. It was a great home away from home for us to jump in the car and see the rest of Bretagne. Looking at Mont Saint Michel across the bay while eating freshly shucked oysters is just something you can do to 'fill in' your day. Local shops are a 5 minute walk away with boulangeries, cafes and also Carrefours. Great walking trails and driving maps were provided so you always have something to do. Wifi was provided for the teenagers so that kept everyone happy. Highly recommended and we can't wait to go back!

“Maison De Vacances - Excellent holiday rental in pleasant Cancale”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
2
people found this review helpful

I stayed at Maison de Vacances for a week in July 2014, with my partner and friends, and we are all very satisfied. The house is spacious and very well equipped, and everything was in good order.

The house was clean, and had a friendly feel to it. It is situated in a quiet street in Cancale, with the possibility of parking a small car right by the house. Our car was unfortunately to big for that, but there was a lot of free parking space at the street nearby, not more than a minute's walk away.

We were only four people in the house, but the 3 large bedrooms can easily sleep 8-10 people. 2 nice bathrooms and a modern kitchen with all necessary facilities and equipment made everything very easy for us. (It is not necessary to bring any kitchen equipment at all.)

In the adjoining garage we found several sun chairs for use in the secluded and well kept garden. There was also a washing machine and drying racks. 2 old bicycles was free for our use, and we had some pleasant rides to the beaches nearby. We also rented 2 bikes at the tourist information centre in Cancale, and they worked excellent. A little curiosity here though; almost everyone at the restaurants in Cancale speaks good english, but at the tourist information they only spoke french (!), which made the bicycle renting a bit challenging...

The host lives in a town nearby, and he is very friendly and helpful. We communicated by mail and SMS before we arrived, he waited for us at the house when we came, and he came by to collect the keys when we left. (He speaks good english by the way.)

Cancale is a small coastal town with a lot of good patisseries, creperies and restaurants. We also visited Saint Malo, Mount St. Michel and the beautiful medieval town Dinan, -none of them further away than 45 minutes by car.

This is a lovely area of France, and with fewer tourists than the south coast. If you choose to visit Bretagne, we will not hesitate to recommend a stay at Maison de Vacances in Cancale. We will certainly stay there again, should we ever go back to this part of the world.
