“Lovely gite in a peaceful setting”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent a week at Les Bruyeres in May 2016.. The gite is very well equipped with quality appliances and detailed instructions for their use.. We loved the fire and lit one just about every night. When we had a problem with using our European adaptors, we had a very quick reply from the owners with immediate help. The gite is situated in easy access of a lolt of wonderful sites. We visited Mont Saint Michel, Rennes, Vitre, and Fougeres.
There is a supermarket with service station close by. We found eating at home at night very easy.
We are 3 women of 70 years. We did find the spiral staircase bit difficult as it is quite tight. Everything else was great fir us.

“A super stay!”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a very enjoyable stay here last month and appreciated the peaceful surroundings, the lovely garden and the cosy but really well equipped and immaculate cottage. There are various local walks and villages nearby with their colourful markets.Les B was a welcome retreat and has a good, comfortable feel to the place.

“A haven of peace and quiet”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in June 2014

The facilities are quite basic (reflected in the price) but perfectly adequate, with a shower which puts to shame showers I have experienced in other (more expensive) French gites.
Although Les Bruyeres is very rural and peaceful there is a well-stocked supermarket within walking distance.
The market in St. Hilaire (Wednesdays) is well worth visiting, and the restaurant in Le Cygne hotel (on your right before the main crossroads in St. Hilaire coming in from Louvigne) does an excellent lunch.
The surrounding area has plenty of places to visit e.g. Fougeres and Vitre. Although just into Brittany Les Bruyeres is a good base for exploring southern Normandy as well, and is an easy drive from St. Malo, Caen and Le Havre.
