We really enjoyed our stay here. Only 4 of us so we had plenty of space. Beautifully presented and had everything we needed.

“Idyllic countryside retreat”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a lovely gite in the countryside - peaceful and relaxing. The old stone walls and kitchen table give a feel of rustic charm.... But the cottage is fully equipped and even has wifi to keep us up to date. The gardens are beautiful and our children had so much fun cycling down the lane! The location is ideal, being close to the town in Fougeres and not too far from the attractions at Mont St Michel and St Malo. Overall, a lovely base for a holiday of Breton galettes and cidre.

“Truly a hidden gem - beautiful rustic accommodation in Brittany”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I am almost a little hesistant to write this review and uncover this hidden gem - a tasteful barn conversion surrounded by an exquisite cottage garden set in idyllic French countryside. The accommodation was wonderful - stone walls, high ceilings, exposed oak beams, two large open fireplaces reminsicent of days long gone by, yet all the modern conveniences including a full kitchen and wifi that worked seamlessly. Our hosts Beatrice and Didier were incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home right away, helped us with our cycling adventure into Fougeres and and showed us a shed full of games/toys which enthralled our 4 year old son for days to come. There are plently of sights to see nearby with the old medieval towns of Fougeres, Laval and the exquisite Mt St Michel only a 40 minute drive away. However, the real highlight was coming back to our slice of paradise and simply relaxing in their beautiful garden. One very nice aspect is that the property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac with no passing traffic - great if you have young children as our 4 year old spent many hours freely adventuring around the house and gardens, feeding the sheep and looking for any of the resident felines (which possessed a remarkable ability to sense this and make themselves scarce). A really lovely stay and I will definitely look forward to coming back.

“Perfect family holiday”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed this lovely holiday house which built about 400 years ago.Even though it is just off from motorway, it was very very peaceful and quiet around there and we could hear sheeps and cows. We felt so peaceful and had a relaxing time there.The house was very warm and cosy. It has everything we needed.
We were 7 of us(3 adults and 4 children) and there was a plenty of spaces in the house. Next to the house, there is a garage and we could use bikes,scooters, table tennis and darts etc.It was great fun for kids to run around with scooter in the garden.
We visited Mont Saint Michel and it was amazing! It only took 35 minutes from the house. It will be great to go early in the morning as it won't be too busy.
Next day we also visited Fougress by WALK! There is a walk/cycle pass from St Germain and we decided to walk there instead of driving. It took us over 3 hours just one way but all children including 4 years old managed. It was great experience to walk about 20km.
There is a supermarket called Super U in Saint Brice en Cogles about 15 minutes away and we could buy everything fro there.
The owners were both very friendly and helpful. We bought some jam from there and tasted really nice!
We had a lovely perfect family holiday there and would recommend everyone considering to visit Mont Saint Michel or just have a relaxing holiday.

“Authentic France”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This property is a beautiful restoration of what feels like a traditional Breton farm building. The main features being traditional fireplaces think brick walls and high ceilings. Beatrice and Didier the owners have made the most of the location by setting the rental in a lovely garden and not over developing the site. You feel that you are staying on a farm. They provide free a range of well used bikes. We bought our own and enjoyed cycling the local lanes including the former Fougeres to Antrain railway now a cycle path.

In theory you could cycle to Mont st Michel, but it is about a 40 minute drive so we went in the car. Fougeres is an attractive town with a well preserved castle. The surrounding countryside is very quiet in terms of traffic so to get anywhere does not take long.

The property is not on the coast, which is apparent from the map and reflected in the price. If you have an idea as to what Fougeres is like as an area I don't think you will be disappointed. It's hard to think of anything the owners could have done better at this location.
