As good as it looks!!

  • 5 of 5

A cute property in an idyllic spot, absolutely everything you need is there from the swimming pool to the ice tray.

David and Vanessa are excellent hosts, always available but never intrusive.

We would certainly return, and we would definitely recommend a stay to friends and family.

Fantastic Holiday Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Vanessa and David's 3 bedroom cottage back in June with our young children and had chance of a child free break so booked their Garden Cottage. What a wonderful, peaceful location with superb heated swimming pool. The cottage was beautifully furnished and everything matched through out the cottage. A well equipped kitchen and great BBQ, which my husband loved. We spent lazy days sipping wine around the swimming pool, idyllic. Plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. A place for people of all ages whether it be romantic getaways or family holidays. David and Vanessa were great hosts and we shall certainly be coming back again for a 3rd visit.

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to Garden cottage and once again we had a lovely holiday. The cottage was very clean and tidy and very well appointed with everything you could possibly need.

We made great use of the pool and enjoyed walking in the local countryside as well as canoeing on the Lac de Guerledan.

We love the peace and quiet of this rural location which is why we keep returning.

A fantastic getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our holiday in this cottage was very tranquil as it is situated in a unique part of Brittany away from the stresses of modern life. The cottage is modernised, well equipped and furnished. There is a heated swimming pool to relax by in a garden setting. Close by is a lake where one can partake in various sport activities. A fantastic location for family holidays and we have booked for 2014
