What Past Guests Are Saying
Good gite in a great area.
Thanks for letting us stay in your longere. The location is marvelous and we really enjoyed our stay. Kayaking was especially enjoyable and I would recommend anyone to do it. We had delicious food at La Mulette at Moncontour and also found the medieval fete rather entertaining. We'd love to return again soon.
A wonderful stay!
We had a brilliant stay at Le petit longere. The gite was equipped with everything we could wish for, and very comfortable. The setting is idyllic, and ideally positioned for trips to nearby towns - we had trips to Moncontour, Dinan, St Malo, Mont Saint Michel, and Josselin during our stay. The welcome pack was a lovely touch also. Many thanks!
beautiful accommodation and surroundings
the cottage we stayed in was everything we had hoped for and more ...like being in a postcard !
the welcome pack was very welcomed by us after a long journey , the cider was immense .
the next morning we met the hosts penny and ray who were both very helpful and friendly people so much so we were made to feel like family !
The location is far enough away from the town to have as much peace and quiet as you need , but is also only a short car ride if you need to stock up on more cider or cheese , the nearby towns all provide plenty of lovely restaurants , which we visted alot and i have found it hard to find a better chocolate fondant anywhere in the world than in this small part of brittany .
My favourite part of the holiday would have to be the scenery around the the cottage and how relaxed the whole set up makes me feel , the wonderful hosts also make me want to visit again and again .
A lovely gite in beautiful country side surroundings. Highly recommended for a relaxing break.
Would book again with out hesitation.
We had a wonderful and relaxing time in this beautiful setting.
Just to say what a lovely place this is. The longere has everything one could wish for, the area is beautiful with plenty of things to do and Penny and Ray were both so helpful - looking forward to coming again this year.
