Guest comments

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 ponies. We are all at work or school and really look forward to our time in France. We first visited Brittany ten 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 having potential! Even though it was empty for about 6 months before we bought it the house never feels cold, always 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 itself is very child friendly, with stair gates, high chair, cot and changing mat etc. The garden is completely enclosed and safe for the children to play. The village of St Marc is wonderful, you can wander down to the bakers in the morning for fresh croissant or a pin au raison. There is a post office and store and two bars. The sports bar also does light snacks at lunch time. The area is great for walking and cycling generally. We have left some bicycles there for guests to use.
