Jonesfest in France 2014

  • 4 of 5

We booked this to accommodate us, our children and grandchildren for a weeks holiday to celebrate my retirement. 7 Adults, 2 teenagers and 4 children plus 2 additional adults for a couple of nights. We were looking for somewhere with plenty of room, facilities and activities to keep every one amused and La Foret de Glenne really fitted the bill. Other than visiting Fougeres and a couple of meals out we really had it all on site. Typical old French Gite accommodation it was really fully equipped, not state of the art modern but everything you need for a rural holiday. Kev & Linda made us very welcome (great welcome provisions basket) and made us feel that the facilities were truly ours for the duration. Everybody loved the pool and games room. Everyone agreed a great venue for a family get together.

The property is fab, I love the setting, so peaceful, yet close enough for lots of outings. we were blessed with excellent weather even for the time of the year, not the first time I might add. This property and the hosts are never a let down, so obliging with every need, they always go the extra mile, cant wait to go again, keep up the great work, good luck, xx
