About Tim Raines

Bonne Location SARL is a family business based in South Brittany and specialises in the rental of superior quality self-catering accommodation at a competitive price. Each holiday cottage, or gite as they are known in France, is packed with traditional character combined with modern comforts and conveniences.

Gites de la Tourelle, comprising four self-catering holiday cottages opened its doors in the summer of 2006 having undergone a substantial yet sympathetic restoration. Whether you are looking to rent an intimate cottage or a luxury farmhouse we have the holiday home for you.

Tim Raines purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Tim Raines chose Théhillac

Our research has found that when visiting France most people want to rent in a rural setting but one which is not isolated, is easily accessible and facilitates easy access to the regions main tourist attractions. The location of the gites was carefully considered to respond to the above criteria.

Brittany is not only an area of outstanding natural beauty but also an area of astounding natural diversity. From the densely forested centre of Brittany, to the beautiful coast line and islands of the Gulf of Morbihan, from the salt marsh areas of the Brière region to the vast sandy beaches at La Baule you will not be short of things to see and do.

What makes this farmhouse unique

When staying at the gîtes ourselves we love the fact that we are in such easy reach of sandy beaches and the areas main tourist attractions and towns (La Roche Bernard, Vannes, Rochefort-en-Terre, Guerande, La Turballe, La Baule and Rennes) to name but a few.

We love the bustling market at Rennes on a Saturday but returning to the tranquility and comfort of a lovely converted farmhouse or barn and enjoying a dip in the pool followed by a leisurely meal/barbecue on the patio in the evening.

Being located at the centre of a small rural village you really get an authentic experience of the French way of life. The local people are so friendly and welcoming. Each year numerous events and activities are organised by the viilliage which are well attended by villagers and visitors alike.

Had a lovely week in the Farmhouse, superb spacious cottage. Matt made us feel really welcome, also he gave us some great ideas of places to visit, we went to the Festival of Photography at LaGacilly,

well worth a look, also La Roche Bernard is a very pretty tourist attraction, La Baule is a must if you like the seaside, would definately recommend this holiday location & we'll be going again.
