“Perfect Little Piece of Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2011

We spent a wonderful week in Cherry Cottage. It is a charming blend of contemporary decor and rustic charm, decorated, fitted and equipped to a very high standard. The gardens, the ambience to the place is just so peaceful and tranquil that it really made our holiday and we just really felt bereft when we left and it will always remain avery fond memory. Caulnes is only a few minutes drive away and not far at all from the motorway, yet the cottage is not at all troubled by noise as you really are in a secluded and peaceful area. Caulnes itself has all you need for groceries, petrol etc although not a lot else there. Places like Dinan, Rennes, St Malo are not to far away at all - in fact much nearer than google maps suggested in terms of travel. We loved the cottage and I guess the most flattering thing I can say, is that it is the sort of place you want to tell everyone about, show people you photos etc, yet at the same time, you want to keep it a secret for it is a little treasure and we certainly hope to be able to go again next year. I feel very confident in recommending this gite.

This was a first family holiday in France and in a gite. Also the location was a punt too. We had a superb fortnight stay in a lovely gite, nicely decorated and appointed. Kids had a great time playing in the orchard. Dinan was a reasonable 20 mins away and some stunning beaches 45 mins. Chris and Kim were very welcoming and approachable. I would highly recommend gites by Jewells

We have stayed at places before that have failed to live up to the expectations put in place by reviews on Tripadvisor - and I am so happy to say this is not one of them. Having returned from a weeks stay in Pear Cottage it is easy to see why Brittany Gites by Jewells keeps on getting 5 out of 5 for everything.

We went away as a family of four for the last week in July. With two boys aged 4 and 2 we wanted a place we could stay and relax, but to let the kids burn off some energy. The grounds are all self-contained and perfect for this.

The gite we stayed in is an extremely impressve conversion of an out out-house or workshop of some description. Beautifully transformed into a two bedroom gite with a bathroom between the bedrooms. One bedroom with a really comfy double bed and the other with a small double (4') and a single bed. The bathroom has a beautiful suite with a really good shower. Down the spiral staircases in a great kitchen space with all the facilities you'd ever need - including dishwasher, hob, oven and fridge freezer. The lounge space is ideal for sitting in during the cooler evenings with comfy sofas and a tv (even with the internationally available CBeebies!)

The location is ideal for exploring the whole of Brittany, which we did. There is a beach called Pen-Guen, about half an hour to the north that is well worth seeing. So peaceful and crystal clear waters! Thanks Danny and Maeve for pointing this one out to us :-)

Chris and Kim are fantastic hosts and the food, although we only ate in for two night of our week stay, was incredible - delicious, superb and plentiful. The welcome basket was really appreciated too (especially the bottle of cidre!)

I would definetely recommend this for families looking for a peaceful base to explore the stunning countryside that Brittany has to offer.

Had a great stay for two weeks in the Apple cottage. Big garden with a trampoline, perfect for our 3 year old. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable, about 45 minutes drive to great beaches, 30 minutes to Dinan, We ate in the house each night and the food provided was really tasty and really good value. Would highly recommend to anyone

We rented this accommodation as friends were also going. The gite was perfect, really modern and beautifully decorated and clean, the meals cooked by Chris and Kim are just amazing, the location is ideal for visiting the Brittany area, and the site perfect for kids as it is all enclosed and they can run riot in the orchard. Can't recommend this highly enough.

We stayed for 2 weeks at Cherry Cottage and were delighted with everything. The orchard setting really is beautiful and very peaceful, and the cottage is fitted out to a very high standard. The nearest village, Caulnes has a supermarket, butchers, bakers, petrol station etc, and the city of Rennes is only 30 mins by train. The beautiful town of Dinan is 20 mins away by car and is well worth a few visits. There are a variety of good restaurants here if you don't want to cook. Also, the meals provided at the gite by Kim are excellent and very good value. All in all you can't go wrong at Gites by Jewells. Book with confidence!

We stayed for a week in Pear Cottage in July 2011 and can only endorse everything that has already been said about Gites by Jewells in previous reviews and would have no hesitation in recommending these gites, which are beautifully furnished and presented and in a lovely location with the nearby villages of Caulnes and Broons offering all amenities, and being within easy reach of Dinan which has quaint cobbled streets and numerous quality restaurants and shops to browse and a picturesque port where boats can be hired or where you can just relax in the restaurants that line the river, and the beaches at Dinard

Chris and Kim are the perfect hosts, being welcoming and available for advise if needed whilst not intruding and the meal service offered by Kim is a real bonus and her meals which are left in your fridge for you to enjoy in the peaceful atmosphere of your gite if required are 1st class and highly recommended

The weather upon our visit was a little disappointing, however, I`m sure that if Chris and Kim were able to organise the weather it would have been perfect as was everything else at Gites by Jewells
