About the property

Cottage in Saint-Georges-de-Reintembault, Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany, France - Quiet Countryside Location Yet Only 40 Minutes To Sandy Beaches And Historic Mont Saint Michel

This cosy, 17th century, granite, Breton cottage is set in rolling, tranquil countryside. Having been recently renovated and refurbished, it is new to the holiday market. The sympathetic restoration has been undertaken using traditional materials and retains its original charm and character. High quality fixtures and fittings have been used throughout, which serve to complement the original features that have been maintained. The cottage overlooks a sunny garden within close proximity to the resident English owners. The cottage sleeps 4 to 5 (child’s bed/cot) in 2 bedrooms. Cider Cottage is an ideal location for sampling the numerous delights of a French rural holiday, yet is within easy reach of Normandy and North Brittany coastlines.

About Chris Webb

Having enjoyed many years of lovely holidays in France, we decided to move here permanently in 2012. Cider Cottage is in the grounds of our own beautiful French home. We look forward to making you welcome.

Why Chris Webb chose Fougeres area

Cider Cottage is an ideal spot for lovers of rural life, yet is within easy reach of tourist sites and expansive sandy beaches. As an added bonus for 2016, Cider Cottage offers the ideal location for lovers of the Tour de France. The presentation of the teams and the spectacle of the Grand Depart will be held at the World Heritage site of Mont Saint Michel which is easily reached from here. Day three will see the race pass through the local area. Why not join us in the crowd to cheer on your favourite team?

Guestbook comments from the owner

A truly fantastic place to stay. Chris & Angela are just wonderful hosts. We arrived to fresh bread, jam and cheeses which was perfect after a day of driving. Our gite was warm and homely, with everything you could want in a home from home.

The location is beautiful and perfect for exploring, from Saint Malo to Granville there is lots to do and see. If you want to just kick back and relax then the stunning gardens are fab for soaking up the sun and enjoying the peace and quiet.

This is a true gem of a location and we hope to return in 2016.

Cider Cottage, La Ville Esnou, St Georges Reintenbault France

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cider Cottage it is beautifully furnished, fully equipped and spotlessly clean, a real home from home feel. The hosts Chris and Angela were friendly, attentive to our needs and discreet. Nothing was to much trouble for them. We will definitely recommend Cider Cottage to friends.

The location is ideal for beach or country visits which can include Le Mont St Michel, Granville, Brittany American Cemetery and Memorial.

Perfect French Idyll

  • 5 of 5

Cider Cottage is so charming and peaceful in a glorious area to explore. The cottage was very welcoming, well equipped, sparkling clean and tidy. The garden and grounds are beautiful-perfect to enjoy an alfresco meal, glass of wine or in our children's case burn off some energy and have fun! Angela and Chris are so warm and helpful. Their local knowledge was a great asset; helping us to find perfect beaches, delicious bakeries, not to be missed sights/spots (of which there are many!). We loved Mont Saint Michel, Fougeres, Dinan, markets, nearby beaches and the lovely local people. We will definitely be back to Cider Cottage-a peaceful haven in a delightful area. Thank you for such a special holiday.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and spotlessly clean cottage that I would highly recommend.

This home is extremely well equipped and the kitchen has every utensil you could possibly wish for! The gardens are beautiful with two swings, which my girls enjoyed. We particularly enjoyed eating our breakfast and watching the birds at the table! The area is fantastic with plenty to see and do, loads of castles, pretty towns and chateau's, not to mention Mont St Michel.

A lovely stay in Cider Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cider Cottage was a lovely place to stay. It was just as described on the website. It was clean and well maintained with modern facilities. The owners Angela and Chris were the perfect hosts and we could not have asked for more as far as customer service was concerned. They suggested lots of places to visit and we had many pleasant meals in local restaurants. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to my friends and family.
