About the property

Four Bedrooms, Four Bathrooms - Sleeps up to Eight, plus baby

Situated in its own grounds in a hamlet between Megrit and Jugon Les Lacs. Jugon is a ‘petit cite de caricature de Bretagne’. The medieval town of Dinan is 20 minutes away and the northern coast (including ferry at St Malo) is 40 minutes.

The house is built in stone and enjoys a large garden. Ground floor: New Kitchen/Breakfast room, Dining room (one wall of renovated stone with decorative arch and large Breton fireplace), Study, Living room, (wood burning stove), bathroom and laundry room. First Floor: 3 double bedrooms (2 double and 1 twin/double), and 3 bathrooms all ensuite. Second Floor: 1 huge double bedroom and ensuite living room (suitable for family). FREE ENGLISH and FRENCH SATELLITE TV and FREE WI FI INTERNET. A heated communal outdoor swimming pool is just 5 minutes away by the side of the lake in high season.

Property Location: Le Tertre de Fresne is situated in its own enclosed, extensive grounds in a very quiet hamlet mid-way between the picturesque towns of Megrit and Jugon Les Lacs. A tarred single-track road leads to the hamlet, which contains about 10 houses, including a working dairy farm (ideal for children!). Megrit and Jugon are both about 5 minutes away by car and contain a number of local shops and other facilities. Jugon, in particular, is a really pretty town. It is a ‘petit cite de caractere de Bretagne’, with a lovely traditional town square with a boulongerie (for freshly baked croissants etc!), charcuterie, grocery, post office and banks. The town also contains a number of excellent restaurants, including a creperie, and traditional French bistro with set menus from about 10 Euro (we recommend this one particularly highly!). Jugon also has swimming and sporting facilities.

Local Attractions: About 20 minutes away is the medieval town of Dinan, which contains numerous restaurants, cafes, art and craft shops, medieval sites (castle, walls, churches etc.). The town is divided into two; the main part is surrounded by medieval walls and castle, with lovely cobbled streets and out door cafes. The second part is located around the small port on the river, with more restaurants and boat cruises to St Malo, Dinard or even the Channel Islands. Dinan also has a superb hyper-market on its outskirts (Le Clerc) which is open 6 days a week, including lunchtimes! The property is very conveniently located for reaching the northern coast. Resorts such as Dinard, St Jacut, Erquy etc, with their great beaches, are all a maximum of 40 minutes away. There are also many inland sites reachable within roughly the same time such as medieval Josselin and Moncontour.

Getting there: The closest channel port is St Malo, which is only 40 minutes away, but Cherbourg, Caen etc (with their faster crossings) are still only 3 hours drive away. It is possible to come via the Channel Tunnel, but be prepared for about a 6 hour drive!

The nearest airport is Dinard which is only 40 minutes away. Rennes is the next closest at about an hour and it takes approximately 4 - 5 hours to drive from Paris (all autoroute, except the last few miles)

The cottage was in a lovely quite location with everything we needed for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently stayed in this lovely character cottage with another family. The facilities were really good with a well equipped kitchen, utility room (if you needed it) and really good sized rooms, most with en suite. The cottage was a good size and we all fitted very comfortably and had plenty of room.

The cottage makes a great retreat after a day out. We spent a lot of time in the beautiful, historic town of Dinan which is only about twenty minutes away. We hired bikes from the local village of Jugon-les-Lacs and rode around the quiet roads surrounding the cottage. Doing, this you really get a good leisurely look at the wonderful peaceful countryside surrounding the cottage. In two hours we were only passed by two cars and a tractor! The cottage is also only about 50 minutes for St Malo - again well worth a day's visit.

Stuart and Julia were very helpful throughout.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is my third visit to the property and it certainly didn't disappoint. The quiet, rural location is blissfully serene and the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. The property is extremely well maintained, well equipped and well looked after. We spent much time in the lovely gardens playing badminton and croquet and having BBQs. The local village was charming with lovely local restaurants and shops. The highlight was a day trip to nearby Dinard with a plethora of different restaurants and shops too. I would highly recommend this property and the owners were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects of our very successful and happy stay.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in rural Brittany. The house was very attractive, spacious and very well equipped. We spent many happy evenings barbecuing in the pretty and private garden.

The surrounding countryside was lovely as were the local villages and towns. We especially enjoyed day trips to Dinan and to the beautiful Brittany coast line.

We would be very happy to recommend this lovely house.

A charming and spacious house. We felt right at home and had a great Brittany holiday thanks to it!

  • 4 of 5

The house has plenty of room: it slept 9 (5 adults and 4 children) in perfect comfort. Stuart gave us extremely useful information ahead of and during our stay.

"Les Vignes" is remote and in the countryside -- which is exactly what we were looking for. The town of Jugon-les-Lacs is nearby (6 km) and has all the everyday shopping and small restaurants. The bakery there is amazing. You will eat excellent bread, croissants and pains au chocolat every day!

The kitchen is not completely new, but it is well renovated and did work perfectly well. There's plenty of hot water for everyone and enough bathrooms and toilets, too. The satellite TV with UK programmes is a big plus. The garden is absolutely lovely. It has lots of space for the kids to play and the grown-ups to sit and relax.

There is an English-speaking house manager who lives nearby and can sort out any problems you may have with the property right away.

If you want to explore the northern and central parts of Normandy, this location is ideal. We loved the beach at Perros-Guirec, which is just over a 1-hr drive away. The Côte du Gratit Rose and Sentier des Douaniers are amazing!

We did not go all the way west, or to the southern coast, because we ran out of time and because the drive would have been too long for us. But there's so much to explore in a 1.5-hr radius that this did not matter.

We loved Brittany. We are very grateful to Stuart and his house for helping us discover it!

Perfect cottage for large families

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with 4 adults and 5 children ranging from 5years to 15years. The house was definitely large enough and well equipt to service us all over the Christmas period. It was lovely and warm, clean and it has lots of character. We made use of the large open fire and smaller woodburner in the living rooms and the kids enjoyed the selection of board games that was there. The kitchen was the most well-stocked I've come across in a rental!

The house was certainly cozy and comfortable in the winter and I think would be charming in the summer when you can make use of the garden.

The nearest village in Jurgan Le Sacs is charming and typically French with a few good bakeries and a good supermarket. We spent most of our time in Dinan further afield with its beautiful cobbled streets and medieval history. I would definitely recommend this property, especially for families and would like to visit again.

Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Large, beautiful and peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay. The property has character and is large and spacious inside. Plenty of room for large groups to spread out in. Nice and clean with plenty of kitchen accessories. Loads of books to read and on the last day we found the box of toys upstairs too, oops, the kids never even spotted them hehe.

The bedrooms are all very large and very comfortable, the showers all great with good water pressure. It's very handy to have use of the washing machine too.

Granny and gramps bought their fold up bikes with them and went for rides round the area, the roads are quiet and open so safe for cycling.

The owners are very helpful and responsive.

Situated in between jurgan les lacs and megrit it really feels like your out in the sticks with a couple of other houses for company, a lovely pretty garden to sit in and enjoy the quiet. Our two young boys loved popping out to wave at the tractor doing his rounds and to see the cows in the field. They also enjoyed taking it in turns to help granny do the watering.

Megrit is the sleepier of the two villages but does have a bread shop that is good. jurgan les lacs is very pretty with a good super market, a good bread shop and a handful of good restaurants and a post office.

The lake at jurgan is huge and beautiful and although we didnt participate there was lake activities available. The area is all very well kept.

We also spent a lot of time in Dinan as its so lovely and only a 20 min drive, we made it to the coast in half an hour, lovely beaches.

This house was a great base to see this part of the country and I would definitely consider staying here again some day.

Thanks again to the owners.
