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.

Fantastic holiday cottage in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a brilliant 2 weeks in Woodpecker Cottage (2 adults and 2 young children). We found the accommodation to be extremely clean and very well appointed. The heated swimming pool was a huge bonus and the grounds were very attractive and fabulous for the children to play in. We also enjoyed the games room, boules court and the kids loved the new addition of the swings.

The cottages were a great base for exploring the local area with beautiful beaches about 30 mins drive, lovely towns and of course all the water sports on the lake. There were also plenty of safe bike rides to do directly from the cottage.

We would definitely love to return very soon.

Thank you Paul for making it such a great stay.

What a fabulous place.

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievably pretty place. Beautifully rustic interiors and the pool made this a perfect place to stay. I'd love to say I roamed the woods and walked to town to try the restaurants but I'd be lying. My kids ran around the garden, played in the pool and generally only wanted to leave when going shopping. It's close to Dinan and Yffinac for hypermarkets and we made a couple of excursions to Mont St Michel and St Malo. Paul's possibly the most laid back landlord in the world and if you go you will relax, unwind and have a great time. Just....don't try and go the week I want next year! Thanks

Holiday at La Bournais.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed many times with the previous owners and we're pleased to see that the same tranquile retreat still exists. The addition of a pool was lovely and the property was very clean and comfortable. My only concern is that the planting of fast growing conifers will change the view across the gardens but this is only for the future as it stands it is a lovely place to spend your time.

Just the right place to relax while exploring Fran

  • 5 of 5

A second visit to Jugon accompanied by son and family. Wonderful time, a relaxing location with everything there for you to enjoy yourself, whether lazing about the pool or exploring the wonderful countryside. You are assured of a lovely welcome from Paul and Michelle. The cottages are very comfortable and very well equipped. Would thoroughly recommend a holiday there to anyone looking to explore this stunning region of France.We plan to visit again next year, so beware Paul, we may bring more of the family.

Delightful rural retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our first visit to La Bournais, in the very comfortable Wisteria Cottage, situated in very well cared-for extensive grounds with a super pool, surrounded by mature trees.

Right in the countryside yet so close to the attractive town of Jugon-Les-Lacs with all its facilities and within minutes of good road access for travelling further afield to other market towns, chateaux and numerous superb beaches.

Thank you Paul for a most enjoyable stay.

From the Owner

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.

  • Notes on accommodation: Electricity is included in our prices. Heating for the cooler months is available at an extra cost. Food Packs are available at extra cost. We can provide transport (subject to arrangement) for Drop off / Pick ups for Cycling and Walking. Outside: We think our 'oasis' of La Bournais' offers you all the ingredients for a superb holiday in Brittany. We are only small, with the farmhouse and 3 cottages, so plenty of space for relaxing and for the children to play. You can pass away leisurely days by our new 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.
