Great relaxing French holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly recommend the Annex at Parc de Lutin to any family in particular those with toddles to early teenagers, looking for a great, worry free and relaxing holiday in the peaceful Brittanny countryside.

The Annex is a beautiful gite and the facilities outside are excellent. The swimming pool has been this weeks highlight with us in it everyday.

The owners nextdoor are the perfect hosts and ensure that guests lack nothing. The excellent comprehensive information folder makes interesting reading and most useful.

Thank you for seven lazy hazy days!!

A lovely holiday for all the family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in the Annexe with our two girls aged 6 and 8. There was plenty of space and the property was modern and very clean throughout with a very well equipped kitchen (we cooked quite a lot) and generally everything you could want was provided- the owners were keen to make sure this was the case. The visitors information book provided us with everything we needed to know as well as good ideas for trips and recommendations. Outside is great especially for children- there is loads of space and every activity you could think of for all ages, all safely enclosed so the children explored and played freely. The outside eating area and surrounding garden is very pleasant, there are different areas to relax and the pool was enjoyed by the children at least once a day. The owners were friendly, thoughtful and helpful, giving us some useful ideas for trips. It is a quiet rural location, but around 10-15 mins drive from two interesting towns- Josselin with its chateau is particularly lovely and we all enjoyed cycling along the canal there (miles of flat, wide paths).

The perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? We have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks stay at the Annexe. It was quite simply the most perfect location for a break from our busy lives at home. The location is ideal to allow you to explore Morbihan and beyond - with somewhere new to visit every time we wanted an adventure. Equally we enjoyed some days of pure relaxation, with our three kids (9,7 and 4) enjoying all the amenities on site - more space than they could ever use, trampoline, swings set, various volleyball, and swing sets...and of course the fabulous little pool, which they used everyday. We also discovered a family love for table tennis and had great fun identifying the family champion over the 2 week break!

The accommodation is superb, spacious, spotlessly clean, fully equipped with things you didn't even know you might need! Janine is just lovely and incredibly helpful - always available on site but very discrete. I was able to easily feed my family of fussy eaters - choosing to cook most evenings in the fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher - hurrah!) - Reguiny is only a 4 minute drive away so the intermarche there allowed me to keep the fridge stocked and I popped out to the boulangerie every morning for fresh bread.

We ate most meals outdoors in the sunshine - at the beautiful large table and chairs on our doorstep, with our huge parasol sheltering us when necessary.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough - if you are looking for a real break away from it all where your kids will have the freedom to enjoy the French sunshine whilst being completely safe - and you want the space and luxury of the good life - book now!

The Retreat

The Retreat provides excellent holiday accommodation. The gites has been beautifully renovated and tastefully decorated providing really comfortable accommodation with all modern conveniences. Surrounded by lovely gardens, with a small swimming pool and swings/play area for young children. An excellent place for a relaxing holiday with lots of interesting places to visit in the surrounding area. The owners live on site and were extremely welcoming and very helpful.
