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.

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.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

It’s hard to imagine a nicer place to stay in Brittany/Normandy than Cider Cottage, or a more friendly, charming, attentive, and welcoming host couple than Angela and Chris. Our four days in St. Georges de Reintembault at La Ville Esnou went by all too quickly and our only regret was that we didn't book for longer. Cider Cottage is wonderfully comfortable, beautifully equipped, and spotlessly neat and clean. It was originally a small barn that has been turned into a modern stand-alone residential cottage by Chris, a retired architect - and obviously a good one. The setting is serene - well out into the quiet countryside yet convenient to shops, restaurants, and major tourist attractions. Truly a special place.

Superbly comfortable modern cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely cottage, so very comfortable and well equipped. The gardens are beautiful, loads of birds and surrounded by trees and fields. Angela and Chris are perfect hosts, there to help if you need them but without intruding on your privacy. They are a charming couple and we will definitely return as it was such an enjoyable week. The area is very interesting and picturesque. Thanks for everything Angela and Chris

Merci et a bientot Julie and Eddie

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.
