Holiday cottages in Brittany

Fully enclosed heated swimming pool
Fully enclosed heated swimming pool

Our three child friendly holiday cottages or ‘gîtes’ in Brittany, France are set in spacious lawned gardens, with a large heated swimming pool with a reclinable cover (pool open and heated to 28°C April – end of October). Located near the Brittany/Normandy border, the hamlet of La Haute Mancelière provides a great base for visiting the beaches around St Malo, Dinard and Mont St Michel and a little further away, those of the D-Day 1944 Normandy landings. The gîtes are situated in peaceful countryside but are only 5 mins drive from local shops and restaurants. You’ll find animals to feed, bikes to ride, games to play…there is plenty to do here whether you choose to stay at home or go out and about to explore the local area.

Les Chouettes (Sleeps 12+cots)

Les Chouettes living area
Les Chouettes – an impressive six bedroom farmhouse with three kingsize double bedrooms (one en suite), two twin bedrooms and one bunk bedroom. Three bathrooms.

Les Alouettes (Sleeps 7+cots)

Les Alouettes private dining area
Les Alouettes – a pretty 3 bedroom cottage, two kingsize double bedrooms, one triple bedroom, two bathrooms.

Les Hirondelles (Sleeps 4)

Les Hirondelles double bedroom
Les Hirondelles – a charming cosy cottage, packed with original features such as beams and an old solid wooden staircase. One large kingsize double bedroom, one smaller bunkbed room. Ideal for couples or young families

The family friendly cottages are decorated and furnished to a high standard. They are equipped with everything you would expect to find in your own home (and perhaps more!). Comfort is a priority here – you won’t find old second hand furniture or lumpy mattresses here. The accommodation is ideal for families and the cottages contain all the equipment you need for young children and babies.

The gites can be rented separately or together for larger groups of up to 23 people. Each cottage is completely independent with it’s own private outside dining area which is not overlooked by other cottages. The hamlet itself is located off a quiet road, so there is no danger for children or noise from traffic (except for the occasional passing tractor!).  Well behaved dogs are welcome (as are well behaved owners.)
