Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Un petit coin de paradis
Nous revenons d'une belle semaine passée dans le gîte d'Amanda à Glénac! C'était nos premières vacances en famille avec notre petite fille et c'était super. Le gîte est très agréable avec tout le matériel nécessaire pour passer une agréable semaine. Il y a également un petit coin jardin avec une table et des chaises longues pour profiter du soleil. Amanda offre un accueil très chaleureux sans rien oublier pour le bien de ses hôtes. Elle avait préparé tout le matériel nécessaire pour notre bébé (baignoire, lit parapluie, jolie cape de bain, turbulette...). Nous avons été accueilli avec un beau panier déjeuner, un délicieux gâteau à la courgette fait maison (hummmm) et une bouteille de cidre, sans oublier la bonne confiture à l'abricot! En plus de ce bel accueil, le gîte est un endroit idéal pour se reposer et se ressourcer à la campagne. La Gacilly est à même pas 10 minutes en voiture et le gîte n'est pas loin de Josselin, Rochefort en Terre, Malestroit... Bref, un emplacement idéal pour visites et détente. Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de ces vacances et gardons précieusement cette adresse! Merci encore Amanda !

Idéal : calme, cocooning assuré :)
Nous avons adoré notre séjour. La maisonnette est spacieuse et idéale pour 2 personnes. Le petit jardin entouré de verdure est un plus, un petit barbecue a agrémenté notre séjour. Notre hôtesse Amanda est adorable, elle nous accueilli très chaleureusement . des petites attentions très appréciées : petit déjeuner offert, cidre, pommes et produits Yves Rocher. Si vous aimez les animaux alors c est le paradis, chiens et chats très affectueux. Le Foxglove Cottage est le point de chute idéal si vous souhaitez découvrir la Gacilly et les cotes du Morbihan ! Magnifique !

Comfortable, peaceful and welcoming
A lovely little gites for two people - charmingly rustic and situated in the midst of beautiful French countryside. For those who wish to escape the crowds and have a tranquil break, it is perfect. Having said that, the gite is in easy reach of Redon, from where one can catch the train to various towns and cities; my wife and I had a great day out in Nantes. The owner Amanda was lovely - welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable about what the local area has to offer the tourist. We had a very relaxing week Foxglove Cottage, and would return without hesitation.

Excellent séjour dans ce charmant gîte au coeur de la nature. Les propriétaires sont adorables et très accueillants. Si besoin, ils sont toujours présents. Leurs animaux ramènent joie et bonne humeur dans ce cadre idyllique. Je repartirai très volontiers dans ce gîte les yeux fermés. En plus de son cadre charmant, il est très bien placé, proche de la forêt de Brocéliande pour les amoureux de nature. Un cadre parfait pour l'évasion. Allez y !!

cosy, clean and comfortable
Amanda was a fantastic and generous host. She made our stay very special. The gîte was cosy, clean and comfortable with a lovely area for sitting outside when the sun was shining. There are lots of places to go for little walks in the area and some gorgeous villages nearby.

Amazing small cottage in Brittany
We had a great time in Amanda's cottage in the countryside, with a private patio and everything to feel at home and on holidays at the same time. Amanda is very welcoming and breakfast is just amazing, you won't believe it!

A charming little retreat tucked away in rural Brittany
I had the pleasure of staying in this cosy little gem in early July when the gardens were in full bloom and nature all around. It was like a welcome port in a storm tucked away in rural Brittany and a real tonic to escape to such tranquillity and calm, even though it was just for one night. My hosts (both bilingual) were really lovely and couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming with their hospitality and warmth. I was even given a basket of cherries and as a welcome gift!. Downstairs is nice and cool and well equipped with a double sofa bed and sweet little kitchenette with tea & coffee provided etc. Then there's a spiral staircase leading to the pretty double bedroom with velux window looking out to the stars! The bed was to die for, really comfortable, warm and peaceful and a welcome retreat after a hectic day. Shower in bathroom was powerful and water lovely and hot which was great in the morning too! A great little romantic escape! Would recommend to friends.
