Really quiet and rural setting.Small and traditional.
It was a traditional french cottage and was a little basic and lighting was a bit poor at night. But as the weather was good we were outside a lot with the dog and the garden is great. Everything worked in the house but internet reception is quite poor unless you go to the garage.Had not realised we would be opposite other guests in a bigger place but that was no problem and made it interesting. Bed was comfortable and water hot in the shower. Couple of lovely pretty villages nearby one for shopping and one with a brilliant lake for walking around. There is a sports centre and swimming pool there attached to a campsite which offers a number of things to do and see. All round we had a great week.
Beautiful house in the beautiful place
We had spent 6 days in Gite, and this was definitely one of the best vacations in our life. We'd been there at the end of November - beginning of December, there was lots of snow, and this was exactly what we wanted to see at this time of the year, we couldn't wish for a better weather.
The house had everything we needed - it was clean, warm, had all amenities, and that was all we needed. It's perfect for two people, although could probably accomodate up to four.
We had arrived late at night and had no problem finding the place, although GPS really helped us. The owners provided us with the GPS coordinates, and this helped us a lot.
The location of Gite is great - in the middle of rural France, there are two beatiful small towns very close - Dinan and Dinard, and the majestic Le Mont Saint Michel is within a pretty short drive.
For people who are looking for a romantic place to stay or want to explore the French culture this place is great. This is definitely not a place for the big city lovers or for those who is looking for some luxury accomodation.
Leben wie Gott in Frankreich
Wir haben gerade zwei Wochen in der Bretagne verbracht und es einfach nur genossen.
Das Ensemble steht irgendwo im Nirgendwo. Aber wenn man es einmal gefunden hat, findet man auch, was man gesucht hat: Ruhe, Entspannung und Erholung. Wir hatten in der ersten Woche traumhaftes Wetter und Frühstücken in der Morgensonne vor unserem Häuschen hat einfach dazugehört.
The Gite ist klein und schnuckelig, für zwei Personen super. Unten Küche, Sofa und ein Ofen (Feuerholz direkt neben dem Haus), oben finden sich ein Bad und das Schlafzimmer. Wenn man etwas kräftiger ist, könnte der Einstieg in die Dusche etwas beschwerlich werden (etwas sehr eng..). aber sonst passt es. Es ist alles etwas einfacher, aber es findet sich alles, was man braucht.
Wir haben jedenfalls das ganze kulinarische Programm der französischen Atlantikküste in der kleinen, überschaubaren Küchenzeile "abgearbeitet".
(Ein Tipp für Selberkocher: In St. Lunaire findet sich eine kleine Poissonerie mit einer ganz reizenden älteren Fischverkäuferin, die einem nicht nur mit Rat zur Seite steht, sondern auch ganz hervorragenden frischen Fisch anbietet. Die Muscheln sind der Knüller!)
Péhé liegt nicht weit entfernt von Dinan, einem der wenigen erhaltenen mittelalterlichen Städtchen. Sehr reizvoll, entspannt, gutes Eis (Ecke Rue Jerzual) - lädt einfach zum Verweilen ein. Der Markt jeden Donnerstag ist sehenswert.
Die Betreuung vor Ort, Pamela, spricht englisch und französisch und kümmert sich bei Problemen und Fragen wirklich sehr nett um alles.
Nicht zuletzt funktioniert die Kommunikation mit den Besitzern schnell und problemlos, sehr nett.
Wir jedenfalls waren nicht zum letzten Mal in der Bretagne.
The Gite, Pehe
We have stayed at the Gite twice now and definitely recommend it as the perfect location for a holiday hideaway for two. It's set amongst beautiful countryside affording cycling or long walks on lanes that see one or two cars a day at most. The Gite is well appointed, comforatable and warm. On sunny days the gardens allow for lazy relaxing days with a bottle of local wine and a good book, perfect for unwinding. Lots to visit in the local area with the coast only 40 minutes away and the medieval town of Dinan 20 minutes. An array of shops and cafes are to be found but for us the value and quality of the local produce tempted us to self cater most of the time and eat al fresco.
Cosy property, calm area, relaxing pure
We were 2 people coming to this property and I have to admit, it was quite an adventure, as we did not come from the direction indicated in the description. So we had to go to Plelan le Petit to find the place from there, the description is great! Arriving there late around 9 pm everything was prepared, but it was totally dark.
The place is very romantic and offers enogh space for two people, for 4 I' d call it rather cosy. The equipment of the kitchen was adequate and we frequently prepared excellent meals.
The property is in the middle of nowhere, which was wonderfully quiet and helped you to recharge the batteries, although the mobiles and blackberry's worked.
The bed was a little soft, and the couch wasn't really too comfortable, nevertheless the oven made a wonderful warmth. I think I spent one of my best vacations there and I would recommend the gite any time. It's not luxurious, but very original.
This was our first Gite Holiday and we would certainly return. The Gite had all necessary amenities as detailed in the information received and the location is excellent with Plerin Le Petite having a good size Ecomarche supermarket.We used it as a base to visit places like St Malo, Dinan, Cap Frehel and Dinard and had one or two 'chilled out' days at the gite. Our own children are young adults and do n't holiday with us but other guests had children who seemed to enjoy the extensive grounds and safe and quite location.
All in all the holiday was very enjoyable and represented excellent value.
