    We recently returned from staying in La Tarais cottage and want to compliment Debbie and Bernard on their excellent site. The gite itself was great, with plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 children – the boys loved their gigantic bedroom. All mod cons were on site which made for a hassle free experience. Debbie and Bernard were gracious hosts and made us feel very welcome and were available to answer any of our queries.

    Facilities on site are excellent with plenty to do for the kids. The swimming pool is a standout feature and was enjoyed by myself and my sons. They also loved the trampoline and swings and slide.

    This was our first time staying in the Dinan region and I can honestly say we’ll be back. You’re spoilt with places to go, and all within a reasonable drive. For example, Mont St Michel is only 40 mins and St Malo is just 30 mins. Locally you have 2 very good boulangeries and a decent selection of supermarkets are within a 10 minute drive. The town of Dinan is only a few minutes away and has a fine selection of restaurants. The port of Dinan is also well worth a visit. The gite itself is also located close to the GR34 walking\cycling route – handy for working off the croissants….

    So all in all an excellent visit and we hope to get back!
