Fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy to recommend Barn Owl Cottage. We have just spent a lovely fortnight there. Its in a beautiful area, and is completely private and self contained. The booking process with the owner was so easy, and Doreen, who manages the arrival and departure at the cottage, was very friendly and efficient, leaving us her contact details if needed for our stay.

The cottage had absolutely everything we needed, especially in the kitchen! The whole house was extremely comfortable, clean, and uncluttered, which is always a good thing! We truly relaxed and appreciated spending lots of time outside, especially when our two grown up sons arrived for the second week for yet another ‘last family holiday’! They flew into Nantes, a very easy option.

We loved sitting outside most evenings, watching the sunset and soaking in the atmosphere. The whole holiday went fabulously well. The area is lovely, especially Derval, Chataubriant and our visits further afield to La Balle, Le Croisic, Rennes, Nantes, Pornic and the wonderful Chateaux and wine tasting at Brissac Quince.

As a family, first with our 2 children now with 2 grandchildren we have taken our holidays in France for 20 years & have never stopped in such a fantastic cottage & clean to standards we have not found in France before

The only 2 points that could be addressed 1. Make mention of steep staircase in literature, being disabled it gave a few problems.

2. Ensure there are explicit instructions for all TV's & other equipment
