Les Clos exceeded our expectations a delightful location well away from the hustle and bustle of busy cities. Very easy to reach from Saint Malo and an ideal centre to explore the attractions of Brittany.
We had a very enjoyable visit to Dinan. We particularly enjoyed our day at the World Heritage site at Mont St Michel, despite it being extremely busy.
My eldest grandson and I took a drive to Sword Beach and Pegasus Bridge. It was a long drive but excellent roads and well worth the effort.
My wife and I had arranged the trip to enable us to share a week with our three children and their families. There were 14 of us, ages varied from 75 to 4. The house provided something for everyone, masses of toys, computer games, gym pool swimming and hot tub. A fantastic week enjoyed by everyone, our 8 year old grandson cried when we had to leave on Saturday morning.
Finally to top it all the Navy turned out to meet us at Portsmouth by dressing the decks of the new Aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth a fantastic week in idyllic surroundings.
Epic holiday and talk of making it an annual thing. I organized a stag do for 11 x 30year old guys on the 9th June 2018.
The House was incredible, the owners very accommodating, the house manager looked after us superbly. In short it was 7 days off bliss with fantastic amounts of cheese, wine and BBQ/hot tub, mixed in trips to the coast and late nights in the bar/barn (perfect setting whatever the weather) and going out to the numerous restaurants nearby and in Lamballe.
Our highlight of the trip was the BZH wakeboard cable park in Dolo (5min drive) which we did 3 times offering great value, entertainment, and really good food (excellent burger). Its the perfect place for the kids to go to and mum and dad to join in or enjoy a beer/glass off wine at the side of the lake whilst the kids have fun.
In short great stay and cant wait to come back again.
We hired the house for a gathering of friends to catch up and party. The venue and facilities couldn’t have been any better and we had an amazing time. Would fully recommend to anyone.
Even before we arrived the owner Riel was tireless in making sure that the house was arranged in the best way to suit our party of 12 (8 adults plus 4 children from 11 months to 11 years).
The house boasted plenty space for the adults to relax and for the children to play, the pool table and table football in the barn were a great diversion away from the games console. The gardens were great for games and the pool/hot-tub a great diversion for hungry youngsters whilst the BBQ was warming up.
Although the house is in a very quiet location the local bakeries and Inter-marche were only 5 minutes away by car and within running distance for the more athletic in the party.
A great time was had by all, we would love to go back.
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.
