We stayed, with 2 other families, in les chouettes the largest of the gites a week ago and it was great, having everything you could need for a stay with small children. Before we even arrived Susan (the lovely owner) was just brilliant - being 3 families with 4 children (3 toddlers & an 8 month old) we had lots of requirements for different sleeping arrangements and Susan fulfilled them all with both wooden & travel cots and a bed with a bed guard. Every room was set up just as we'd asked and Susan even bought a large travel cot for our daughter as I was worried she would be too big for a normal sized one- fantastic! The gite has stair gates, highchairs, baby seats, playmats and so many toys and books, it really was brilliant for the children.
The gite itself is lovely and was roomy enough for all of us with a private terrace area with large dining table and a barbecue. From here you can see the lovely grounds with swimming pool, large trampoline and swings and slide. In addition Susan also catered for us on 2 evenings with a 4 course meal which was very tasty and great for us with small kids as we could relax & enjoy a lovely meal when the children were asleep.
The gite is also in a very good location - we visited Dinan, Dinard, Saint Malo, Mont St Michel and Fougeres during our week stay and also had a fantastic meal at the nearby La Maison Neuve, recommended by Susan where not only was the food delicious but the children could see rabbits, pigs & chickens.
A great place to stay, we all highly recommend it!
