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

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!

Great break for us!

  • 5 of 5

The place and surroundings are just amazing and feel like a cocoon. Our daughter enjoyed taking care of the animals with Jenny and more generally the whole family had a great time in the pool.

Lots of amazing sites to visit around, and best of all, Jacques and Jenny's warm and joyful welcome!

We really spent a hell of a time. Thanks again to our wonderful hosts

Gite Aragon - vacances idéales!

  • 5 of 5

Notre fille de 4 ans a adoré tous les animaux, surtout les chiens et les poneys! En une semaine elle a vu plus d'animaux qu'en une année! Et la piscine chauffée a été la plus appréciée par notre 2ème fille de 10 mois, elle ne voulait pas la quitter! Enfin, les parents ont pû profiter du barbecue et du bain de soleil!

Merci beaucoup aux propriétaires pour ces vacances de rêve!

Owner's Response: The pleasure is always ours. We enjoy having guests here and being able to share all the animals with them. I think the pigs and goats, the donkey and ponies are really sad when people go, no evening visits with carrots !! Certainly our two dogs look forward to our next arrival. We just want guests to enjoy every minute of their stay.
