We stayed at Red Houses in May 2017 for almost a week with some friends and their dog. We had the most incredible few days, relaxing in front of the wood burning fireplace and dipping in the hot tub. The house has been renovated to a very high standard and has everything you could need for a comfortable stay.
Alison and her sister were extremely welcoming and made us feel like we were staying in a home rather than a house. Their friendliness and generosity really made our stay that bit extra special.
We would highly recommend staying at Red Houses to family and friends - intact we might return ourselves later this year!
Red House Gites comes highly recommended. The accommodation is plush, set in a fantastic location whilst the host Alison, is very friendly. It made for a lovely Easter break in rural France, and I will be returning. Thanks Alison!
We have had a fantastic time as a family with a young child and two dogs. Beautiful and peaceful location, in a comfortable cottage in the countryside. The owners were extremely welcoming and hospitable! Highly recommended and will definitely be coming back!
Stayed at Red House gites for a week with partner in April and again with family to relax and explore the surrounding area.
The accommodation is beautifully restored and has all the mod cons you need to relax and unwind. After a day out exploring, it was great to return to the gite and chill out in the garden area with a glass of red.
There are some lovely places to explore and lovely restaurant.
Have driven there both times which has helped getting to visit place like Dinan, St Malo, Dinard and Concale (which your can get fresh oysters from sea front).
Will deferentially be having more holidays here.

The accommodation is beautifully restored and has all the mod cons you need to relax and unwind. After a day out exploring, it was great to return to the gite and chill out in the garden area with its large BBQ, gazebo, recliners, and of course the Hot Tub. A glass of red and some locally purchased seafood for the BBQ couldn't be beaten.
Close by is the picturesque Dinan, one of the prettiest small towns in Brittany. The port area is arguably one of the most attractive you can visit and the medieval old town is a wonder in itself as to how it managed to survive the bombings of WWII?
Also worth a visit is the monastery at Mont Saint-Michel, wasn't planned but being only about an hour away it is a must if you stay here!
Myself and my Boyfriend - booked a 5 night short break at Red House Gites at the beginning of July 2016. The weather was perfect for our stay so made the most of the outdoor facilities - outdoor eating area, use of the huge BBQ, relaxed on the sunloungers with a glass of wine until the sun set and sat in the hot tub under the stars when the sun went down, the sky at night really is something else! The gite is decorated tastefully,is comfortable and has everything you will need. The world cup was on during our stay so we walked to the local village Bar(about 10 mins) one evening to watch the football, the locals were very wlecoming and drinks were reaosnably priced. We did explore some of the many attractions in the local area - Swimming at Lake Everan, Seafood lunch in Cancale and a beach day at St Briac - there are many more but we just didn't have the time so enjoyed the relaxing setting of the gite. Thank you for a lovely break and we hope to book again some time in the future.
We visited Red House Gites in Brittany for the first time in the summer of 2016, June. It is a beautifully restored complex at Haute Haussee, a hamlet on the edge of the village of St Maden. If you like to get away from it all and enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place for you. Accommodation is two attractive en suite double rooms, comfortable living area, well equipped kitchen and a lovely outdoor seating area with table and chairs and awning for shade. BBQ is available if you are so inclined. Wi-fi is available. We enjoyed the sound of a cuckoo most days, perched in a tree in the garden.
A short walk takes you into the centre of St Maden, a neat, attractive village, where there is a small Tabac. Here you can have a beer, play a game of pool, buy bread and cakes each day, also a limited selection of basic groceries.
However to enjoy the wider surroundings and to stock up at the supermarket, you will definitely need a car. Within 10 minutes or so is the pretty village of Le Hon, with a small outdoor pool, an Abbey and a rampart hill top as well as the usual café/bar. From here, if you so choose, you could take a pleasant riverside walk (20-30 minutes) into Dinan to enjoy the local market once or twice a week, a good move to avoid parking. With its rampart walled old town, Dinan is about a 15 minute drive with 2 or 3 good supermarkets but worth a visit just for the history. Evran, with its nature reserve and lake, is also about 10 minutes.
Dinard, with an attractive coast line walk, lovely beach and beach side stalls/cafes, is about 25 minutes. Further afield again is St Malo with nice, small, sandy beaches and more ramparts, plenty of eating experiences and trendy gift shops and, for the oyster experience alone, as well as nice gift shops, Concale is a must (mentioned in The Times no less as THE place to eat oysters!). Even further, about 50 minutes but worth the journey if you fancy it, is Mont St Michel.
I’m sure there is a lot more in the immediate locality, walks, village restaurants etc., that we could have explored but we would have needed another week to do that!
