Had a lovely time at this lovely property. The upstairs master bedroom is amazing. I loved the walks and local places to visit. The property was as described and I would definitely recommend this to Family and Friends just great for chilling out and away from the stress's and strains of life. The open fire is just great in the winter with a glass of wine we even toasted on forks. We will be back. Jacquie & Barry

A wonderfully equipped and beautiful house. We had a super holiday with wonderful weather. Lots to do for children and a great playground in the garden, thanks!
A gorgeous house with everything we could wish for, plenty of DVDs for us and the kids and a brilliant base for exploring all the main sites (Rennes, Fougeres, Mont St Michel, St Malo, Cancale) as well as the beautiful local countryside.
Wonderful holiday in St Marc, in your beautiful village and home. Thanks so much for everything, we will be back one day, we hope.
Thankyou for providing us with such a lovely house (cake especially welcome on arrival!). Unfortunately weather not great, but none the less explored the area and had a great time. The Emerald coast is beautiful, even on a rainy day and a trip to the invasion beaches in Normandy was very moving.
About the Owner
We live in East Anglia with our two daughters, dogs and tortoise. We are all at work or school and really look forward to our time in France. We first visited Brittany thirteen years ago and fell in love with the area and coastline when our oldest daughter was just one
Year property purchased: 2004
Why this location?
We bought the house in St Marc le Blanc in January 04 having initially fallen in love with the stair case and my husband saying the attic had potential! Even though it was empty for about 6 months before we bought it, the house never felt cold, it always feels like coming home. The gorgeous stone walls weren't discovered until the builder moved in and started hacking off the old plaster to knock out the wall in the sitting room and we decided to leave some of the walls exposed on each floor. Gradually over the last few years we have done more work but we are nearly there. This house is a lovely family home in a wonderful village, well worth a visit.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
The house is perfect for walkers, runners, cyclists and families alike. We are child friendly, with stair gates, high chair, cot and changing mat etc. The garden is completely enclosed and safe for the children to play or for those of you with well behaved pets. The village of St Marc is wonderful, you can wander down to the bakers in the morning for fresh croissant or a pain au raison. There is a post office and store and bar. It is a perfect spot for exploring the stunning coastline of Brittany or the medieval towns inland.
