“Lovely place for a lovely family holiday”

We stayed at sunset cottage for two weeks at the end of May and the begining of June 2012. The cottage was lovely, well laid out and very comfy indeed. The children loved the garden to run around in. Pat and Ian were great and nothing was too much trouble. They were very informative and helped us out when ever we had any queries. The house is in a great location, with lovely views from the garden and in easy reach of many interesting places. I am sure we will be back when the kids are older and take advantage of the flat roads and go cycling, especially to Le Mont Saint Micheal, which is literary just around the corner. Wonderful place and a wonderful stay.

“Excellent home comforts”

We spent 2 weeks at the cottage and loved every minute of our stay.
The cottage provides all home comforts with lots of thoughtful touches, making it a very comfortable place to stay.
The bedrooms are wonderful and everything you could possibly need is provided for in the kitchen. The lounge area is tastefully decorated and has a beautiful fireplace (although we didn't need this during our stay)

The location is excellent for anyone wishing to sightsee throughout the area and is an ideal location for Le Mont St Michel, Rennes and Dinard. Try to visit Le Mont St Michel during the day and after dark for 2 very different sight-seeing experiences.

We travelled by ferry and drove from Calais, making the journey down part of the holiday. The travel directions provided by the owners were detailed, accurate and very easy to follow. The owners also provided an information pack detailing restaurants, local villages, best beaches etc. This was another thoughtful and welcome addition.

There is a supermarket, petrol station and restaurants in the nearby village and the whole holiday felt very much as though you were in the heart of France.

“Stunning Gite in Beautiful setting - am definitely going again!”

My husband and I stayed here with 2 friends in the summer and had an amazing time, better than we expected and would strongly recommend this for a peaceful relaxing holiday with friends or family.

It is such a beautiful property and has been renovated to a very high standard. It is in an ideal location, being only an hour drive from the port and in such a peaceful, rural setting, yet close to all local amenities (you can even see the Le Mont Saint-Michel from the garden). The English owners reside in the property next door during the summer months and were very friendly and easy to get hold of if we needed anything, this was very useful and they had lots of good advice about places to eat / visit etc. This said, we did not find that having the owners next door was a concern, they left us to it and we could really let our hair down and enjoy ourselves.

One additional point to note - a car is recommended if wanting to visit beaches / towns further afield – we took a day trip to Jersey which was definitely worth a visit!
