Guestbook comments from the owner

We’ve had an excellent time at Maison de Philomene – Having two young children meant the pool, pool games and inside games were a massive hit! The house is gorgeous, well equipped and had everything we could want. A luxury holiday with privacy and relaxation. Thanks to Adrian and Denise for everything. Hope to come back soon!”

Love Belinda, Jay, Tilly, Anne, Jason, Seb and Thomas. - Kent. July 2012

“A very big thank you indeed to Adrian and Denise. Maison de Philomene is perfectly set up for a family holiday: great facilities and safety for the children and craftsmanship and tranquillity for the parents to enjoy. The very ‘breton’ welcome pack was useful and a nice introduction to some Breton goodies. We arrived on the night of the Fest Noz. Adrian warned us about this... but we thought it was absolutely brilliant to arrive to an evening of Breton music and festivities! hope to see you again.”

Further Details:

We strongly suggest that you view our website for more detailed information.

The current owners live on site in the separate Victorian quarters (the two windows to the right of the picture). We are on hand to offer guests help and advice. Having our own private garden area enables us to remain in the background so that guests are not unduly disturbed during their holiday. We also have domestic cats who patrol the garden so Maison de Philomene is not suitable for pets.
