About Paul Killeen

Paul moved to La Bournais from the UK, and we are enhancing the already great facilities at our Farmhouse & Cottages, which have been run as very popular holiday accommodation for the past 20 years, by Pam and Gary, the previous owners.

Paul runs his main business (established 25 years) - Algarve Villa Rentals - from La Bournais, and fully understands what is needed to run a successful rental business

I am a keen walker and cyclist, We will be on hand, but not intrusive, to offer advice and information to make your stay with us as enjoyable as possible.

Paul Killeen purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Paul Killeen chose Jugon-les-Lacs

I decided to look for a property in France in 2012 to expand our already successful holiday rental business in Portugal.

We knew that we could apply the same principals to a French property as we have done in The Algarve for the past 25 Years.

As soon as we saw 'La Bournais' we knew that this was the property we could put our stamp on. The location is perfect; minutes to a thriving village, under an hour from airports & ferry ports and under 30 minutes to the nearest beaches.

With the addition of a heated pool in 2013, we feel that we can offer a truly complete French holiday experience.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Whilst staying at La Bournais, there is so much to do; In the village we have sailing, rowing, swimming & fishing. On our doorstep you can go hiking or cycle one of the many, purpose built mountain bike trails in the area.

We can also offer dropoff / pickup for your days hiking / cycling.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Fantastic stay, we will definitely be back for more and looking forward to the addition of your new pool for 2013. Many thanks Dave and Sheila Lea.



Lovely accommodation, lovely village, wonderful time! Ron & Jean McDonald



Paul, we would like to thank you for our fantastic holiday at La Bournais. The woodpecker cottage was all that we needed, and your new swimming pool and decking area was a delight. We spent a lot of our time relaxing by the pool.

We have recommended you to several of our friends who no doubt will be booking, and we will also be back soon.

Once again, thank you.

Mr N O'Neill



Dear Paul & Michelle

Just a note to thank you for looking after us so well when we stayed in your Farmhouse at La Bournais.

We found your new swimming pool to be great, and the gardens and other facilities were a big plus for us.

The two lakes at Jugon were great, and we enjoyed the sailing, and the local beach resorts we visited were fantastic. Regards

Geoff and Clare Hill

You can pass away leisurely days by our heated swimming pool, or spend a few quiet hours reading a book in our valley garden, just a few yards from your house or cottage (so you are always close to a cool glass of wine, or a cold beer!), and if you do get bored, there are several lovely seaside resorts nearby with white sandy beaches to tempt you. You can also visit the nearby towns of St Malo, Dinard, Dinan and Rennes, places steeped in local history. In the evenings, cook dinner on your barbecue which is provided, and spend a pleasant hour playing boules, or visit one of the nearby seafood restaurants for which Brittany is famous.

A beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. Very quiet, great facilities.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, relaxing holiday. We loved the cottage, and the pool and the games room were great additions. Jugon les Lacs is only a short drive away and we travelled over to the coast almost every day to make the most of the wonderful beaches. Would love to return some day.

5 star property, beautifully maintained

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our holiday couldn't have been easier or better! We were given brilliant customer service. Our initial email enquiry was answered promptly and within several days our booking was made. The owner was very polite and friendly and the description of his beautiful property was accurate in all respects.The directions to La Bournais were spot on and even though we arrived early at the farmhouse there was no problem in us being allowed in. It was our first meeting with the owner as he was cutting the grass!! His hard work and pride in this property is evident once you visit. For the eight of us, ranging in ages from 61 down to 5 years, the property was perfect and the location was ideal. It was a 'wow' factor entering the farmhouse for the first time - such character, beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean and so well equipped. It definitely exceeded all of our expectations. Everywhere was very comfortable and safe for the children - and adults! This included the brilliant swimming pool and surrounding gardens. We felt very spoilt! The property had lots of maps, books, ideas for days out, restaurants, beaches etc which were all very useful.

I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives and will definitely be back again.

Thank you Paul for letting us share your stunning farmhouse - it was such a lovley, relaxing holiday - home from home!!

Le Bournais was a comfortable and spacious house and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We all had a very enjoyable time and the children loved the pool. Paul, the

owner kindly supplied us with two z beds which solved the sleeping

arrangements. We also enjoyed the garden but there was one suggestion

that I would make and that would be purring some tiles or slates out to

and under the outside dining table and also a tiled path to the pool which

would mean that the less tough-footed ones wouldn't need to put shoes on

before going to the garden or pool .

We took it in turns to do the morning croissant walk to Jugon which was fun .

Brilliant for families

  • 5 of 5

The property is really well located to access the beautiful coast, close to amenities and places of interest.

The local village Jugon-les-Lacs is a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk and there is a bakery, several bars and restaurants and the lake which has various activities. Further a field is the stunning town of Dinan and would recommend to anyone to pay a visit to Dinan port as well as the walled town. St Malo is also a must see and the beaches close to St Cast - le - guildo were perfect. We stayed for a week and only scratched the surface of the area and will definitely be back As there is so much to explore.

The property itself is really well equipped and has comfortable accommodation. Myself and my husband travelled with 3 young children and my parents and were impressed with the room sizes, we didn't feel as though we were on top of each other and there are plenty of bathrooms for when everyone is getting ready at the same time! My only criticism of the house was that the fridge was a bit small given the size of property, we did struggle with space fitting all the food in whilst keeping beer and wine chilled, but it wasn't a major issue. The pool was brilliant and the gardens great, the children loved being at the house and often would moan when we took them out as there were very happy running around the gardens and in the pool. We definitely plan to pay a return visit, hopefully next year, and would stay for two weeks rather than one.
