Beautifully restored cottages. Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Myself, Martina and our 3 daughters stayed for 10 days during the Summer with Alison in Hirondelle and found it to be an ideal location for a relaxing holiday in the Normandy countryside. The cottages are fantastically renovated providing a luxurious base to explore the area of which there is so much to see. We had full use of the heated swimming pool, large garden and barbeque area and even bicycles for a quick spin to the local village. Alison and Malcolm were so friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous holiday and cant wait to return.

A wonderful trip with lovely people!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week with Alison at her place in Brittany. Herself and her husband couldn't have been nicer and were always so happy to help us out in any way they could. We had a fabulous trip. The kids had a wonderful time. The house was lovely- very clean and well equipped. The pool facilities were excellent and very well maintained. The area is a good one for going on day trips, as it is quite central. See you next year Alison!

Thanks again.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour vos gentils commentaires. Nous essayons très fort pour que votre séjour soit confortable avec tout ce dont vous pourriez avoir besoin pour des vacances agréables. Nous sommes très bien situé, situé à seulement 2 km de la frontière de Normandie / Bretagne, donc l'exploration des deux départements est facile. Le point positif est que nous sommes à seulement 30 minutes du spectacle Mont Saint Michel et à 45 minutes des belles plages autour de Dinard et Saint Malo. Thank you very much for your kind comments. We try very hard to ensure your stay is comfortable with everything you might need for an enjoyable holiday. We are very well situated being located only 2km from the Normandy/Brittany border so exploring both departments is easy. The plus point is that we are only 30 minutes from the spectacle that is Mont Saint Michel and 45 minutes from the beautiful beaches around Dinard and Saint Malo.

Le linge de lits et de bain inclus dans le prix sont un véritable plus (style anglais à croquer).

Les petits plus : savon pour les mains ou le bain, les torchons, jeux de cartes ou de société .... Brefs des pleins de petits plus vous attendent. Encore merci pour la disponibilité d'Alison et Malcolm. Nous reviendrons sans problème.

FIJn, gezellig huis met oog voor detail

  • 4 of 5

Fijne, rustige plek. Met een zwembad en een ruimte voor de kinderen hebben we fijne dagen gehad. Het huis is echt gezellig ingericht met oog voor detail. Goede uitvalsbasis voor le mont st Michel etc!

Rustige locatie.

  • 3 of 5

Heel rustige landelijke locatie, ideaal gelegen om de streek te ontdekken (Mont-Saint-Michel, St-Malo, Dinan, ... ).

Rust werd verstoord door waterpomp van buren. 's Nachts slapen met open raam was onmogelijk. Is ondertussen hersteld.

L'Hirondelle heeft een mooie woonkamer en keuken. Terras een beetje klein en weggestoken. Tuinmeubelen zijn aan vernieuwing toe. Glazen, potten en pannen moeten aangevuld worden. Geen vaatwas.

Tweede slaapkamer was klein maar wel ideaal voor kinderen. Matras tweepersoonsbed aan vervanging toe. Badkamer klein (hoogte) en jammer geen apart toilet.

Game-room mocht opgekuist zijn en bepaalde zaken zijn aan vernieuwing toe.

Ruime tuin met zwembad. Carport voor wagen is ok. Zeer goede wifi. Hartelijke ontvangst door gastvrouw.
