About the property

Farmhouse in Saint-Georges-de-Reintembault, Ille et Villaine, Brittany, France - All major attractions and great beaches within easy reach

Le Vieux Chalonge is nestled in the beautiful countryside on the Normandy/Brittany border in a very private setting. Ideal for families or friends, the accommodation includes 2 properties for exclusive use, the main farmhouse with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open plan kitchen/dining room and cozy lounge and the snug gite with separate bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. Much of the original character of the properties has been retained, including beamed ceilings and lime rendered walls, yet it incorporates all modern conveniences such as high-speed wireless internet, French and UK Freeview TV, comprehensive digital film library, fully equipped kitchens and a laundry room. The full-size in ground swimming pool is heated to a comfortable 28 degrees and children are well catered for with a separate kids play den and outside play area. In a beautiful private country setting, yet only a few minutes from the lively market town of St James with all amenities. Many major attractions (Mont St Michel, adventure parks, golf, historic towns) and great beaches within easy reach. A perfect location to enjoy a relaxing holiday with family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have had a glorious week spent in this gite. So wonderfully welcoming and homely. We loved sitting by the fire every evening and enjoying the facilities. Everything was thought of, we found everything here we needed. And thank you for the basket of goodies, we shall definitely recommend to friends.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Ourselves and another family stayed for October half term. The house was beautiful, owners extremely helpful, leaving us a welcome package of wine and cheese. The house is well appointed with everything you need and more. With 6 children (all boys!) ranging in ages from 3 to 15 they were all well catered for with the play room and children's toys outside. We couldn't have asked for more with this house, it exceeded all expectations. Close to tourist attractions but hidden away with lovely views across the countryside. We loved the quietness of the place. We all loved this place and very much hope to come back. A real home from home....a gem!

Family holiday in France.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic place to stay, great accommodation and facilities in an extremely lovely part of France. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a very relaxing and beautiful holiday spot. The house and pool was as described by the owners and the pictures show how lovely it really is. A very welcome treat was the owners leaving a welcome pack in the fridge which certainly helped keep the children happy. Great customer service and contact with the owners both before and after the holiday.

One of our best holidays

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here.

The property is out of this world and has everything you need, the property is very secure to our relief as we had a two year old with us and the swimming pool had a locked gate which put us at ease.

Thank you so much for the welcome pack it was well needed by the time we arrived it really was the perfect touch.

We met the owner on two occasions and he was very friendly and couldn't of done any more for us.

We go on holiday a few times a year and this really has been the best to date and will be arranging a return at some point.

What an excellent stay!!

What a view and surrounding!

It was a verry beautifull and cosy house. We loved the pool!! (Just the good size and very clean)

Up to 4 km from the town where you have supermarkets.

Le Vieux Challonge: a place to be!

  • 5 of 5

a very nice farmhouse, very clean. We felt home the moment we came in, thanks to the many warm attentions on arrival. The pool is well orientated and everything you might need is available. Dinan, Saint-Malo, the Mont-Saint-Michel, and more are worth seeing. Great oysters!!!
