“Would love to return next year!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

We have just returned from a great holiday in Cancale. The accomadation was extremely clean on arrival, the fact you have to put the bedding on yourself I did not see as a problem as we've been on camping holidays before so used to being self sufficient! There were four of us in a six person house, I think six would have been a squeeze. The swimming pool is lovely, my children loved it, it was never very busy even when weather was good. We didn't find noise an issue, the accomadation is well insulated and double glazed. Cancale it's self is a lovely town with many restaurants to choose from in the port area. There is a large supermarket just outside the centre with everything you need. We had such a wonderful relaxing week blessed with sunny weather. We would love to return next year.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Cancale. The accomodation was clean and spacious, set in spacious grounds. The one drawback was that it was for 6 people yet only one sofa! shame as there was plenty of room. Reception staff were friendly and spoke a little English which was a relief. You can walk into the town which is set above the seafront in about 10mins. There you will find everthing you need for your holiday at good prices. Cancale seafront is famous for it's seafood restaurants and you can see why, some are a little expensive but worth it. We had a great time and can't wait to go back.

Cancale is beautiful and this self catering accomdation is lovely but there are some things to be aware of before you get carried away thinking this is 4 star accomodation! Perhaps our expectations were too high from looking at website and experiencing good self catering accomodation in the UK - perhaps accomodation stardards are different in France. Firstly, bedding is not put on beds for you it is given to you in packs at reception ( this brought back thoughts of hostel accomodation to me). There is a big emphasis on rules in the welcome pack in the accomodation and you have to clean the property yourself ( I mean all of it!! defrost fridge etc!) before you leave or else they can recommend a cleaner to you- which you pay for- between 55 and 70 euro. You have to buy your own cleaning equipment too or a pack from the office.

The accomodation was very clean and modern. It was not ideal for us however as we had a 6 month old baby and the cot were requested was out in the open plan kitchen living room area so this was a bit restrictive with a little one sleeping in the evening whilst adults trying to enjoy dinner! Cot was too large to fit in bedroom.

We also found te last 3 nights of our stay very noisy up to and beyond 10pm with children running about screaming9 up to 20 on one occasion!. I can imagine that for lots of parents letting your children off to run about using up evergy is very appealing, but perhaps not for those with young children like we had or for people who had no children and were trying to enjoy a beer etc on their terrace! We did raise the noise level wth the staff but were told they could not do anything about it and that we shoudl approach parents! Manager seems helpless about things saying no rules were abided by anyhow! So a bit disappointing in some aspects.
