“Excellent house and location. Perfect holiday. Recommend.”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have four children (mostly teenagers) and have holidayed as a family in Brittany for some years now. This house was actually pretty perfect for us: the very superior end of basic, I would say, but I mean this very positively. It had all we needed and was very easy to maintain over the two weeks. Splendid bathroom facilities.The kitchen is not meant for cooking elaborate meals, but we were on holiday and did not mind too much and managed fine. There are plenty of restaurants etc locally and good supermarkets as well as bakeries and bars. Lovely, lovely sunny terrace behind the house and overlooking the woods for eating outside. Nice beach two minutes walk away and plenty of others ( less crowded) within a 15 minute drive. The internet connection was not terribly reliable, which caused some anguish with the teenagers...Also, I think a slightly more comfortable sixth bed would be appreciated. The lovely and helpful Helene was a star. (also showing us the rather larger adjoining property which we would be super keen to rent another time).

“Pleasant accommodation, but lacking in home comfort.”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage is beautifully situated very close to the beach with a convenient creperie/bar serving delicious food and the surrounding area is lovely.
Sadly the standard of furnishings lets it down, thankfully the weather was warm enough that we could sit outside in the evening, but the settees in the lounge were not at all comfortable, one is made of wicker with flimsy cushions and the other so low you simply crawl off of it!
Kitchen was equipped with basic essentials and BBQ worked well, but the oven is above the fridge, making it very precarious and dangerous to use even though a step stool was supplied.The ancient kettle and toaster were replaced by the owners halfway through the week.
The bedding although clean had been well used so lacked that crispness of clean sheets and only one small square pillow provided so we all used cushions underneath them. The beds were very low so be warned if you have mobility problems like me.
Showers were good giving lots of hot water, but towels could have been bigger.
It was good to have wifi but we were disappointed not to have satellite tv as promised especially as Wimbledon was on. If the weather hadn't been good we would have missed it more. Radio did not work either.
Bernard and Marie were very pleasant as was Helene who cleaned the cottage, but the property could benefit from upgrading slightly ie drawers in the bedrooms and a mirror in upstairs bedroom.There was no information on the local area available in the cottage, which would have been useful
We spent an enjoyable 10 days at Le Penty, but would sadly not return unless it was more comfortable.

We are happy you enjoyed our cottage and its surroundings.
We want our guests have the best holiday as possible thus we are disappointed that you did not like the comfort of the furniture.
It is true that the furnishings of this holiday house are likely to be simpler than those you use daily; but the purpose is different.
Regarding the bed linen we note that 2 pillows per guest would be better; we will take it into account.
We provided satellite TV as promised; but we understand that the bunch of programs supplied by the Continental satellite did not include the British sport program you wanted.
We could have talked about these topics when we visited you 2 days after your arrival.
Nevertheless we respect your remarks and consider them to improve the comfort of our cottage.

best regards
