“Our 4th year here............”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

Just come back from our 4th year here - so, safe to say we like it and have had a fantastic time again this August. Can't go next year which is a real shame. Our children love it and if they are happy then so are we! Ages 5, 7 & 8 this year. Great grounds and facilities for the kids who stay up till it gets dark then pass out exhausted and then a few games of pool and mixing with the other guests in the bar (baby listener works from the gites). Excellent BBQ evening and wine and cheese night. Lesley does really good plat de jour six nights a week - we have it every evening (fish man visits on Fridays - moules frites highly recommended. Beaches about fifteen mins away and vast, tree climbing, lake fishing - loads to do. Nighttime swim is a favourite for kids too. Love it.

What can I say....total relaxation, VERY safe for kids, beautiful area, never more than about 15 mins away from beaches/local attractions.....we have just returned from a fantastic two weeks with a family party of 9, taking up 3 Gitès !!!....ages ranged from 11-75...suited ALL !!!!!...Lesley and Simon are the perfect hosts and make you feel like you are staying with them as friends, not just guests. Lesley would phone and book any restaurant or activity you wanted to do and was full of ideas for days out and activities. The Plat Du Jour was always top notch and better than most restaurants and the BBQ was FANTASTIC !!!!!!I...ALTHOUGH....if you have any ideas about going easy on the alcohol....think again....with Simons "one for the road", you don't stand a chance !!!!!!...Our 11 year old twins have told us this was the best holiday ever.....need I say more !!!!!!

Just got back from our second trip to this complex of gites. A more family friendly place you could not find. The owners, Lesley and Simon, live on site and are terrifically welcoming and helpful. The location is peaceful yet you are only 15 minutes away from some of the loveliest beaches in northern France. The accommodation itself shows great attention to detail and is spotlessly clean, with plenty of large fluffy towels, bathrobes, slippers, posh toiletries, toys for the children and a lovely welcome tray of pate, biscuits, tea and coffee, baguette and so on, with wine, milk and local apple juice waiting for you in the fridge. Outside there are toys for children of all ages, a ball pit, a swimming pool, a massive trampoline, a Wii for the older kids, table tennis, badminton, football area and slides and swings for the tinies. Yet there is always a corner with peace and quiet if you don't want to be surrounded by kids. There is a big utility room in the owners' house with washing machines and a tumble drier (useful with kids!), and a small bar in the centre of the complex where you can sit and have a quiet drink, or join in cheese and wine evenings, etc. You can order croissants and bread to be delivered by the local bakery, and owner Lesley will cook you a gourmet meal in the evening if you order it the night before (strongly recommended). This is an absolutely brilliant place, and my only hope is that you don't all read this and start booking up so I can't go back, as I love it. In fact, if I could move in, I would.

Room Tip: Stairs in the 2-bed gite are a bit difficult, so if you have a babe in arms, go for one of the bigge...

We found Emerald Coast Gites by typing 'family friendly holiday Brittany' into Google. That description couldn't have been more right!
We had a 2 bedroomed gite which had everything we needed with two toddlers, the food was fantastic, the toys, ride ons, climbing frame, trampoline and soft play were more than enough to keep our little ones entertained. The pool area is lovely, with a large pool and a pool for toddlers too!
The meals were outstanding and the cheese and wine evening was great fun. Leslie and Simon are fantastic hosts.
We had such a relaxing time knowing that our boys could play in complete safety. I couldn't believe our holiday was so stress free with a 2 and 3 year old. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these gites to other families.
Brittany is such a great part of France, there was plenty to do in the area but we really spent most of the time around our gite because the kids just loved it. After such a fantastic holiday in an amazing part of the world we are now getting married in Brittany.

We have just returned from a week with Lesley and Simon, and it was wonderful. With a toddler and another baby on the way, I was hoping to relax a bit and I did just that. There was so much to entertain our 2 year old, it was hard to get him out some days, which meant we could stay on site and take it easy.

Lesley has thought of everything for the gites, stair gates, black out blinds, crockery etc, you don't need to bring anything.

The area is gorgeous, and so much again to do for children, we would definitely return to Emerald Gites and the area. If you want to go, book early as they get booked up very early.

Congratulations on a wonderful complex you have created Lesley and Simon, Melissa, Delio, Ruben and Isabela

We have now been to Emerald CoastvGites twice and both trips were fantastic and memorable. Leslie and Simon are wonderful hosts, the houses are very well thought out for children and my personal favourite, the food! Leslie's plat du jours are not to be missed and a great addition this year was the children's meals.

The location is really accessible from the UK and there is so much to do around and about if you can bring yourself to leave the gites. With a 3 year old and 10mth old we loved relaxing in the soft play area and in the gardens.

We are already planning our next visit, can't wait to return!

This is a quote from our 3 daughters (10, 7 and nearly 4!) when asked what we should write about our holiday at Emerald Coast Gites! We holiday every year in France/Spain but we can honestly say this is the most relaxing accomodation we've stayed at. Lesley and Simon are superb hosts, welcoming, thoughtful and providing assistance when needed. Lesley's welcome meal was delicious and it's great that you can order plat du jours if you don't fancy cooking or straying past the front door of your gite! Our gite (no.3) was spacious, very clean and well equipped. Also linens are changed after the first week. There was plenty to keep our girls happy, the resident cats and hens, the dress up area in the soft play area for all budding princesses and supers! There is an ample supply of bikes and trikes and a large trampoline in the garden was a firm favourite with all.Table tennis in the bedouin tent is great for days when the weather is too hot or the rain clouds make an appearance! Lesley and Simons' children, Evie and Sam are lovely kids and by the end of the holiday they had 3 huge fans!
Simon's bar was great in the evenings if you wanted to chat and shoot the breeze with people from the other gites, we met some lovely people and had many a laugh. There is a pool table, darts board, TV and a bookshelf heaving with books for those nights when you're too exhausted for banter! We were all sad to leave but we have great memories of a fun relaxing holiday and the girls are adamant that we'll be back in 2013...Sam and Evie get the popcorn ready!!
