“A little remote and hard to find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

La Maison Neuve provides very clean and spacious accommodation together with an excellent breakfast. The house itself is large and rather elegant. We had considerable difficulty in locating La Maison Neuve and this was only after we enlisted some local help who actually drove their car ahead so that we might follow. We were a little disconcerted on arrival to find that somehow there had been a mix-up with our booking. Although the owners eventually found our on-line booking they were unable to provide the evening meal that we had requested on either of the two nights. Lacking an evening meal on the first night, we went to a local restaurant recommended by the owners which was probably one of the worst meals we have had anywhere.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This was our first experience of a Chambre d'hote and we were surprised at the very high standard of accommodation and food.

Our room (Chambre campagne) was very clean and welcoming with doors opening onto the gardens. The food was of a very high standard as was the wine. They even have a selection of local ciders and jams for sale.

Veronique and Bertrand (and of course their friend Paula) made our 4 day stay in the area very enjoyable. Although they have only owned the premises for less than 4 months they are already proving themselves to be excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a wonderful relaxing time. There are even spa facilities available in the extensive grounds.

If you want stay in the St Malo area then look no further then La Maison Neuve

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Arriving to attend a wedding reception at Chateau Miniac our family of nine spent 3 nights at La Maison Neuve and found the accommodation perfect for our needs. The large family room was our nightly gathering point to share the day's events. Mont St.-Michel and St. Malo were easy drives from this location. Each room had its own personality and the host family could not have been more gracious or helpful, once even leading us to a recommended restaurant rather than give directions. The grounds include a nice garden, horses grazing, and a spa with hot tub, dry sauna and aesthetician services including massage therapy! It was a surprising find in the relatively rural area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2010

Madame gave us a very warm and friendly welcome and our room was clean and nicely decorated. A bottle of wine was quickly produced after our long journey. Dinner (one bottle of wine free another half finished bottle paid for), bed and breakfast came to €148 without gratuity. It is a very handsome, large house in typical grey stone and slate tiles and well maintained. It is on its own off a quiet country road and therefore quiet. There is a jacuzzi in the well kept garden but being a cold winter's night it did not tempt us!
We had a slight flood in the bathroom when the shower insisted on throwing some water out horizontally. The bedroom and bathroom heating is electric which one can control oneself.
Dinner at €28 each was 'fair' - some things came out of a tin or jar. Breakfast was good with home made jams and good coffee.
Although it must have been infuriating for the French reviewer whose friends found it had been double booked, the review, which marked the place right down, is not really of much help as a description.

A very cute guest house, close to Saint Malo, Cancale et not far from the Mont Saint Michel. There is 5 bedromms inside the house, and by this summer there should be 2 "gites" available 2 and 3 bedrooms in an old part of the farm.
The house and the rooms are extremely clean and decorated with a lot of taste.
