Aragon is half of the old Manor House at Lesnen Petits Bois dating around the 18th century. It sleeps 5.The previous French owners lived in Aragon and it has a wonderful traditional French feel; enormous fire in the kitchen,thick walls. It is beautifully furnished, very warm and comfortable. Besides the kitchen Aragon has a large sitting room ,shower room and toilet downstairs and upstairs two pretty bedrooms ,one double and one with three beds, a large bathroom and separate toilet.

We wanted one of our gites to have every convenience for families with young children and if there is anything you especially require we will do our best to help. Cots and high chair are free.

The warm indoor pool, the play area and our menagerie of animals (donkey, pigs,chickens,ducks,sheep and goats) all hoping to be fed make this an ideal holiday--you don't need to go anywhere.

Aragon has its' own terraces for eating out it has a lovely view across the lawn towards our Chapel of St Aragon

Tranquil home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Aragon for two weeks in August 2017. The gite and the property were so perfectly cozy that we enjoyed our "staying in" days as much as the days we spent in Dinan, St Malo, mont saint michel etc (all 15 minutes to just under an hour away). Our 4 year old loved the playground and pool so much that promising to return there was the only way to get her off of the beach! Morning Visits from Bruno the dog and feeding an evening treat of carrots to the horse helped to lull us into a holiday state of mind. The gite had everything we needed. Aragon has two big bedrooms, one of which is very large, and a sizeable sitting area with tv and satellite. We wished the cozy eat-in kitchen was in our house, even when we took our dinner to the terrace. Many thanks to Jenny and Jaques for making us feel like we'd come to visit old friends on their farm.

Joyful and friendly

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in 2 bedroom Hayloft in April. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable beds. living room and the kitchen provided well for weeks needs. The pool was great fun.

Jenny and Jacques are very friendly and great hosts. My daughters (3&6) had a thoroughly enjoyable week with all the animals, peacocks and Bruno the dog has made some friends for life.

I would advise day trips to Dinan, Dinard, St Malo and Mt St Michel.

We had a lovely dinner at Chez Mere Pourcel in Dinan.

Relaxing peaceful break

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful gite in a wonderful, quiet setting. Jenny and Jacques were very welcoming and helpful hosts. It was useful to have some baby equipment on site eg highchair, cot, so that we didn't have to bring these. Our little one loved meeting all the animals and we all enjoyed walks in the surrounding countryside. The gite is also within easy driving distance of the coast and several lovely towns and cities for days out.

Great relaxing family break

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful Gite. There was so much to do with our 2 year old like feeding the animals, swimming in the pool & playing in the playground. It was so lovely and Jenny was so welcoming, our daughter loved the chocolate chicken she had bought for her for Easter. For us, the Gite was comfortable, relaxing and everything we needed for a memorable break. We miss saying hello to the peacocks in the morning!
