Guestbook comments from the owner

"It’s a fabulous location and beautiful house."

"Just returned from out holiday in France in your beautiful cottage. It was a real home form home, the garden and orchard were lovely."

"Thanks again for the use of your lovely home, by far the nicest property we have rented to date!"

"A beautiful setting, so peaceful and a very well maintained pretty house. I am really struggling to get back into work! The kids did not want to come home! and my husband is having a job to get motivated too."

"Great equipment in the house, just right for a family. The children loved the games and dvds and it was great to be able to swop books for the adults."

Stunning property with beautiful grounds in the French countryside

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Green house in France and had a wonderful time. We had our 2 year old daughter with us and she loved the swing/slide in the garden. The house is kitted out for children with little touches such as toilet steps, toys and DVD's. The house has everything you need and we loved the BBQ in the evenings. Lots of the main attractions are around 40 minutes away with lots to see and do in the area. Angie the owner was very helpful and fast at getting back in touch with any queries. The grounds of the house are stunning and it was fantastic to take in the French countryside and relax. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Lovely cottage, perfect for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at the cottage during the summer ( 3 adults and 2 children).

The cottage was spacious and well kept - plenty of room for our family. The facilities were also very good - full kitchen/utiliites, plus lots of games and dvds to occupy the kids during their down time.

The cottage felt nice and secluded from the world ( just what we wanted) yet a string of restaurants and supermarkets were only a short drive away.

Angie was quick in communications and very accommodating and I would recommend her and this cottage to any other family.

The grounds are large and allowed the kids to run wild,

From the Owner

We bought the house many years ago when our four children were young and full of energy. We had holidayed in Brittany for many years previously and we wanted to visit more frequently with the children and grandparents. Owning a property with space for the children to run and play within striking distance of a good beach was something we wanted for the children. It being in a pleasant and peaceful location where we could unwind from the hustle and bustle of town life was some something we wanted for ourselves. This house provided all we wanted and more.

Also in the garden is a large wooden climbing frame (for children up to age 11) with a 3m wavy slide, monkey bars, a child's and baby swing and a trapeze bar.
