We stayed at La Grange, the converted barn at Le Manoir de Bolu. As a family of 3 (with a 10 year old daughter) we cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. It really is the gold star for places of this kind. The attention to detail and level of comfort is exceptional. Whether you have one child or half a dozen, there is so much to keep them entertained. The pool is beautiful, a great temperature and a good size for a decent swim. Our daughter loved the trampoline, table tennis and table football but for younger children there are loads of mini tractors, prams and play equipment on hand. There are numerous bikes to assist in exploring the area and the adjacent village is pretty and definitely worth a visit. The beaches in the area are fabulous and make for a super day out. We've also been to a zoo, aquarium and lots of day trips here and there. I would have no hesitation in recommending this as a perfect base for a memorable stay in Brittany.
Had a fantastic time during our stay at Manoir de Bolu. The Grange cottage we stayed in was beautifully furnished, well equipped & even better than the website photographs. Our children had a fabulous time exploring the site and there was always something new for them to discover. Sue & Chris are great hosts, on hand when needed but in no way intrusive & have thought of everything. The welcome pack, teddy bears on the children's beds, supermarket shop and the leaving gift of a rose cutting from Sue were all lovely touches that made this a first class place to stay.
Great accommodation and all the facilities you could possibly need to hand. The area is stunning. This is our second visit and we will definitely stay again. Three generations stayed and every one loved it!
Our third visit to this magical place. We stayed in la grange with our 7 month old, 4 and 5 year olds. Chris and Sue are the perfect hosts in every way, the house is absolutely spotless, the facilities I have to say are unrivalled anywhere we have seen or stayed in (and I do a lot of Internet research!). The kids had endless fun just messing around on the ride on toys, jumping on the trampoline, and playing games in the huge paddock. We went out of swimming pool season (we've been twice in the pool season which is fantastic) but to be honest there was so much to do we didn't miss it. Brittany is gorgeous. The food is amazing (fresh lobster, crab, mussels). Le quillio is in the very heart of rural Brittany and there's plenty to do on the doorstep with the beaches a short drive away. Very highly recommended.
We had a fantastic week here and would highly recommend to anyone. Such a beautiful and well equipped house in very peaceful surroundings. The adults were able to enjoy the private garden and nice BBQ while the kids were kept constantly entertained with climbing frame, slides, trampoline, swimming pool, ping pong and lots of ride on toys.
One of our children is not yet one and the house was so well equipped for babies. So much attention to detail.
Thank you for a lovely holiday!
We have 4 small children and the facilities and care and attention were even better than we had hoped. The house has lots of non standard equipment to make things easier for the items you forgot to bring. Plastic children's bib (check), childrens cutlery and crockery (check) the list goes on. The outside facilities are also excellent and well maintained. The pool, playground and games room were all used regularly as well as the bikes. The area is quiet and suited to people looking for relaxation and happy children. That was just what we wanted.
Last point to make it about the hosts - Sue and Chris. They are very genuine and helpful people. On our 2nd day our car broke down and being France in August it couldn't be repaired quickly. They could not have been more helpful and kind. They found us the best garage, tried to negotiate the best arrangement and even called in the local deputy mayor for assistance. On top of this Chris and Sue ferried us around Brittany visiting garages and going to the shops before we hired a new car. All of this with complete patience and empathy. You can tell a lot about people when there is a problem and they were just great. What was that slogan - don't turn a drama into a crisis!! Thanks
