We had a very enjoyable holiday - the gite had everything we needed. It was very comfortable and in a great location. French gites quite often don't have mugs and kettles. This one had both - excellent - together with ample crockery and cutlery and cooking utensils. We were three adults but the accommodation would equally suit a family. The garden is enclosed and very attractive with space for children to play and a lovely patio area. Had a great time on the bikes cycling on the disused railway tracks and the canal paths. The Abbaye Bon Repos and surroundings are lovely. It was also an interesting experience to see the lake, or lack of lake, with its exposed dam at one end and locks, buildings and trees which had been under water for over 80 years. If we return to this area in future we will certainly be happy to stay here again.Rating 5 out of 5, Christine & Tony, June 2015.
We have just arrived back from a weeks holiday here and we were very impressed with the cottage and the area. The cottage is very well equipped and has everything you could need if staying with children with a great selection of DVDs and games. The cottage is clean and welcoming with a lovely big main bedroom and great garden. The lake is only a 20 minute walk away or 5 minute drive with a nice beach and is great for swimming or taking out a boat. The children loved spending time swimming in the lake and building sandcastles. We had a very relaxing time here and would definitely recommend especially if you are looking for a place to get away from it all but still central enough to explore other parts of Brittany. Rating 5 out of 5, Ros, Aug 2013.

Our family is well travelled & have high expectations. I can honestly say we found the cottage enchanting & the lake area is beautiful. The great thing about this holiday is you can get away from it all in a lovely french village, which offers peace & relaxation, & travel around easily to see france at its best. Would highly recommend this cottage to families or couples & we will be returning again to enjoy some more! I have enjoyed this experience more than some of the exotic places we have visited. Thank you
Peace, quiet and comfort. Well equipped cottage in lovely surroundings from where you can visit all parts of Brittany. Very comfortable house, lovely garden, anything you'd wish for is there. Double bed too hard to our taste, but in a beautiful and very large bedroom. Mrs Carr's dinners were magnificent. Good value for money. As we say in Holland: "We lived like God in France".
We had a great family holiday, the cottage was everything we expected and much more. This has to be one of the best cottages we have rented ever. It was extremely clean and tidy and offered all the facilities advertised. As a family we could not fault the cottage or its location. I would recommend the property to anyone looking to explore the wonders of Brittany. The location is ideal for touring as well as just relaxing and enjoying the surrounding countryside and lake.
