Boucouet is a pretty gite ideal for couples on a romantic get away or, with the turn of a key, there is a cute twin bedded room for extra guests.
The entrance to the accommodation is from our courtyard where you can relax in the evenings with a glass of wine and light your BBQ.
The downstairs is open plan with a comfortable living space and a tv with a wood burner for cosy winter nights. The kitchen is well equipped with a washing machine, dish washer, microwave oven etc.
The first floor has an impressive larger than average double bedroom with classic stag furniture and a recently modernised bathroom.
The second floor has a cute twin bedded room in case you need the extra space.
The gites are part of a Longere, this has been renovated into 2 gites and a home. Having been renovated fully whilst still maintaining some original features, but bringing it up to modern standards including free wifi. The longere nestles peacefully in a pretty hamlet perfectly located to enjoy all the surrounding tourist attractions in the area. The busy town of Jugon les lacs has everything you need to enjoy your holiday from lovely restaurants to water sports and a local swimming pool with outside and inside activities to please everyone. A selection of different types of shops to fill your needs and on a Friday morning there is a thriving market in the summer. There are several golf courses within easy reach and some amazing historic sites to visit including Chateau de la Hunaudaye and the amazing medieval town of Dinan which is a must for any visitor. There are many wonderful sandy beaches nearby some with lively bars and some in quiet locations. Of course the Emerald coast is most famous for its fishing and there are many local restaurants with locally caught fish on there menu so if you fancy trying some head for St Malo where you there is an abundance of restaurants to choose from and enjoy! Finally return to your gite where I'm sure you will agree there is all the comforts of home and with a glass of wine, relax and take in the scenery.
The gites are run by Mark, Carol and Dan. Mark is a artisan mason and works mostly in France. Carol is a teaching assistant in England but spends most of her holidays helping to run the gites and advising on all the feminine touches. Dan, Mark's son helps with maintenance when he is not working in England. We are all English born but enjoy spending time in both countries and enjoying both cultures, not to mention the wine, the weather and our vegetable patch from which you might be luck enough to receive some produce!

We love the area, the good weather, the rural location and with local amenities close to hand it makes a perfect place to visit. The beaches in Brittany are very beautiful and only half an hours drive from us, our favourite being St Cast with its gorgeous white sandy beaches and fabulous places to eat. Jugon le lacs a few minutes drive away and offers activities including swimming, sailing, fishing, cycling and crazy golf. You can also enjoy many places of interest such as the medieval town of Dinan only twenty minutes away, it has something for everyone including a market, unique shops and the river Rance with boats and an abundance of restaurants and bars. The airport at Dinard is thirty minutes from the house and the ferry at St Malo is forty minutes away making it a perfect location.
We are always available for advice, recommendations and of course just a friendly chat. The Longere is nestled in a quiet picturesque spot with lots of country walks round and about to enjoy nature. We often have visitors in our garden including deer, woodpeckers, blue tits and many more. If this sounds like your ideal holiday come and have a great time and create great memories.

Arrived to some really nice touches ie the loaf of bread on the side and butter, milk and orange juice in the fridge and most importantly wine on the table . So thoughtful .
Clean , comfy beds and everything you could possibly need .
Carol and Mark, really nice down to earth friendly people . Made us really welcome .
I felt really safe staying there .
We arrived in Brittany and Mark had already arranged to meet us in the nearest village and show us the way back to the Gite. Carol and Mark were very welcoming and happily gave us advice on the nearest shops and places of interest. The Boucouet was ideally placed for visits to the coast and Dinan which was especially beautiful. We cycled every day to the nearest village of Jugon les Lacs the roads are fantastic and very safe.
The Boucouet itself was perfect for us very very clean and with all facilities you require including TV and Wi-fi which was particularly handy when you have a teenager with you!!
We are definitely considering visiting again next year!
