Les Gite Marins August 2010
Our stay at Les Remains de Bricourt was better than we had imagined. Our cottage, Bigorneau, had two bedrooms and a large bathroom with shower over tub, upstairs, and a living room, kitchen and powder bath downstairs. It was spacious, clean and luxurious and in the most beautiful of locations, just a few hundred yards from the sea. It is decorated with a seafarer’s theme. The grounds are tranquil and lush and even have a garden that you are welcome to pick from to prepare your meals. There was a patio with furniture for sitting outside and a barbeque. This cottage could easily house a family with three children or two couples wishing to share the space. The kitchen came complete with pots and pans, coffee maker, teapot, juicer, plates, mugs and silverware. The pantry was stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, and salt. The refrigerator was full of eggs, butter, jams, milk, wine, beer and cidre. Everything we would need to complete a meal with the basket of breakfast foods that was delivered to our door each morning or to prepare other meals with ingredients bought at the local farmers market on Sundays. The daily basket of crepes, croissant, bread and cakes were all delicious and it was so great to be able to have breakfast in our pajamas and not rush out each morning to eat.
The congierge, Fany, was super helpful and very friendly and helped to make our stay even better than expected.
The wi-fi at the cottage worked great and that was a big plus for me.
The location is perfect for walking into town or a little further to the port to find restaurants and shopping. Cancale is also a great hub for visiting Mont St. Michel, Dinan, Dinard, Fougere and St. Malo…all just a 30 minute drive away in all different directions.
Our biggest disappointment was our dinner at the Chateau Richeux, big hype, big bucks for just ok food.
I would highly recommend this spot to anyone wishing to see this lovely corner of Brittany.
