“Beautiful Centrally Located Gite”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We booked our stay at La Loctais, St. Ouen La Rouerie in France based on reviews by other travellers and were not disappointed. Our sat nav (GPS) almost took us to the door of our gite, but we had to call the owner, David who quickly came to our rescue and escorted us down the rural road and onto the most beautiful rural property in the area. David and his partner, Christine have lovingly restored the large farmhouse into two units, one for themselves and the other as a rental as well as a detached rental house. We rented the attached two-bedroom, two-bathroom gite and were pleased with the attention to detail and quality of the furnishings/fittings.
La Loctais is a few kms from the village of St. Brice en Cogles and other villages where supplies can be purchased and an abundance of shops, boulangeries and restaurants. We used our gite and a home-base for day trips to Mont St. Michel, La Rochelle, Josselin and other points of interest, but were happy to have home away from home to return to after a long day of sightseeing.
Thank you to David and Christine for a wonderful holiday experience in France. We hope to return at some time in the future.

“Secluded bliss”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We needed somewhere to just chill out for a week and this was just the place. The converted barn was very well done with adequate kitchen, lounge, bedrooms & bathrooms. The garden was very well manicured with appropriate seating and sun loungers for our family. However, if there had been people in the additional Gite it would not have been as private as we liked.
The owners lived next door and we're very helpful to attend to our needs, without hesitation.
The provided directions were accurate and very helpful, as was all other information provided. Overall this was a lovely holiday accommodation, which was brilliant for anyone wanting an away from it all break.

“Farm cottage- rustic and comfortable”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

La Loctais is a cottage (one of several) on a working farm. It was decorated in Country French fashion, with large, roomy furniture and a comfortable bedroom. The host was very pleasant and helpful.

“Calm, Peaceful, and well worth the drive”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This Gite is not on the well traveled path. In fact, it is about 1 hour from Caen and 45 minutes from Rennes. But, it is well worth the effort to get there. The property is well maintained, very attractive, and fully functional. The owners are amazingly accommodating, friendly and live on the property, so they are available most times. If you want to experience French country living in a peaceful atmosphere, this is it. We loved it. There is wifi, satellite tv provided for your connections as well. We booked through Trip Advisor and it was simple.

“the loveliest gîte in Brittany”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014
2
people found this review helpful

This is by far the best gîte we ever stayed in. Surrounded by nature, yet not far away from many beautiful towns and places: le Mont Saint Michel, Cancale, Fougères, etc. The cottage itself is comfortable and nicely decorated, and has a beautiful garden. But what makes this cottage extra special, is the discrete presence of the host and hostess who do everything they can to make their guests feel at home.
