We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Les Clos. The farmhouse was delightful and very comfortably equipped, jam packed with everything you might need and exuded in French charm. (The wifi reception was good so the kids were happy). The property is located in an area of quiet countryside. When you turn off the lights at night it is pitch black and all you can hear are the owls hooting. A good few hours were spent swimming, we also enjoyed some tasty meals in the neighbouring villages. There is ample private space to sit outside and BBQ. You definitely need a car (or bicycle) to explore the area, there are some interesting towns and villages not too far away that are worth a visit. All in all it was a very relaxing, enjoyable holiday, one that I would most certainly recommend .
We visited Le Clos in July 2017.
First impressions were excellent – the property looked even more impressive than the online photographs – the property is in a lovely picturesque area which is quiet but also very well situated to get to lots of great activities by car.
The accommodation was the most stylish and luxurious self catering accommodation we have experienced in Northern France. Everything is modern and clean and the kitchen is well stocked equipment wise, so you can easily cook a big meal for your group. The rooms are a lovely size, and the layout would work for a large family with different ages – or in our case, 3 couples and a feral bunch of 5 children aged between 4 and 8!
We mainly went out in the day time either for lunch, to visit a picturesque town or an activity with the children (our favourite was tree top activity at Charabanc in Plelo). We then came back late afternoon so that the children could get in the swim spa, or play on the trampoline or swing set. – while the adults enjoyed a relaxing glass of wine (or two!). Once the children were in bed, we retreated to the bar which is actually a renovated barn (with lots of original features). Handily we could hear the children through the baby monitor, and they weren’t disturbed by our highly entertaining Karaoke attempts.
It was such good fun, would definitely love to go again. I would also recommend for a winter break, I could just imagine sitting there in front of one of the gorgeous fireplaces eating delicious French food – and wine of course.
We have just returned from our second holiday at Les Clos and again this year we were not disappointed. The farmhouse is the perfect place to go if you are looking for a family / dog friendly place of luxury.
This year there was the added bonus of the bar and gym as well as the new BBQ area within the decked area at the rear of the property.
As the farmhouse is so well stocked with everything possible you might want from baby spoons to slow cookers all we had to do is arrive with our clothes...
The local boulangerie is extremely friendly and only a few minutes away. The supermarket in Plenee is well stocked with more items than you will ever need on your holiday. There are plenty of day trips to be had all within an hour from the farmhouse if you can bare to drag yourself away from your retreat.
The owners are very helpful throughout the whole booking process, including providing telephone numbers and addresses for the local vets and it was a delight to be greeted again by Paul and Libby ( the property managers) who had ensured everything was just perfect for all our requirements.
A holiday at Les Clos is something to be experienced, a perfect retreat for you and your loved ones.
The Farmhouse is just so beautiful and for the 10 of us who stayed (three generations aged from 2 to 67), it was idyllic. The children played while the adults relaxed. Very well-appointed - I don't think that there was a thing that we needed that wasn't provided. Plenty to do and see within easy driving distance, too, and access from port at St Malo very easy. (No long, tedious trip after crossing!). Thanks Riel and Nick: we had a great holiday.
We had a lovely May half term at the farmhouse. The kitchen is equipped with pretty much every utensil you could ask for! The spa centre and barn were particular highlights for us. The children loved singing along to karaoke and playing pool in the barn - a fantastic space for all weathers. I would highly recommend a trip to the beautiful towns of Dinan and Lamballe and, if staying with children, the zoo is also well worth a visit. All in all, a beautiful, well-equipped property for all the family to enjoy.
From the moment you enter the drive, you already know you have made the right choice.
At the head of the drive is a gorgeous rustic farmhouse, to the side, large granite barns, surrouned by well groomed gardens and shelter by tall trees for privacy.
Inside...... well... it only gets better. Truely amazing open space, with a real homely feel. The decor is modern and a huge amount of attention to detail, ensuring that the character has not been lost.
Excellent place to stay with family and friends.
If you are lucky enough to stay here, you must explore the barn/bar... I won't give anymore away, but you are in for a real treat.
I stayed at this fantastic farmhouse over New Year 2016 with family and had the most wonderful time. There were 12 of us in total and the house took is all in great comfort.
We arrived on the 30th December on a cold, frosty and foggy afternoon. The driveway to the house and the drive into it is beautiful, just what I expected and wanted from a French countryside farmhouse. There is loads of parking for the cars we collected at Rennes airport and the 45 minute journey is simple enough, taking you through the local village on your way to the house.
Entering the house was exciting. We entered through the front right door and the first room we saw was the HUGE living room. It’s enormous. It houses a massive corner sofa which easily sits 12 people, a real log burning fire was already lit and was toasty warm. So cosy and fantastic, making you forget about the shivering outside weather.
The kitchen was to the left and is really modern, offering every luxury you’d want. This was a real plus point for us. Very often you stay in rented accommodation only to find it lacking it utensils and kitchen gadgets. This place has them all.
Through the hallway there is another living room which is very large with sofas and a further large flat screen TV.
There are 2 sets of wooden stairs to take you to the 1st floor, one at each end of the house. Here we found 5 double bedrooms, some with 2 double beds and en suits in.Another flight of stairs takes you to the mezzanine bedroom which is huge and has another 2 double beds. Very impressive!
The whole house is decorated lovely, keeping all the old features and exposed stonework but with modern touches throughout.
A huge surprise was back outside to the front of the house. One of the barns has been converted to a bar and games room. Housing a pool table, stocked bar, log burning fire and a mezzanine lounge. It’s truly fabulous. We spent so much time in here.
Don’t forget to go for a dip in the outside hot tub/swim spa. It’s lovely and warm and is great on cold days with a cheeky glass of fizz!
I couldn’t recommend this place enough. We are already planning our next trip.
Thanks Nick and Riel!
