“Fantastic property with great facilities”
Reviewed June 26, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It was an absolute pleasure to spend a week at Maison de Philomene with our young family. The interior of the house is decorated to a very high standard, it was spotless on arrival, and the bathroom fittings were all very modern. There were great facilities for the kids - swimming pool, slide, swings, and plenty of other toys, and the owners were very helpful. We wouldn't hesitate booking up again.

“Perfect house for large groups to explore the delights of Brittany”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were a group of 7 adults and house was perfect for our needs in terms of 4 separate apartments with en suite facilities. The house is located in a delightful secluded rural spot in central Brittany, within easy reach of all parts. The house comes equipped with all mod cons without losing any of its period charm. The pool was was wonderful addition not found in many rentals. The house is fully equipped, the hosts have thought of every need. Although there were no children in our group the house was a treasure trove of kiddies toys and equipment. Our hosts were totally unobtrusive, we only met them on arrival and on departure.

“Believe the hype”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Adrian: please let us know if there has been anything this week that you felt you could have done with, or any improvements we could make.
*blank faces all around*

Before our trip to Maison de Philomene, we excitedly watched the reviews appear for the house. 5 stars across the board and glowing write ups. Could it really be this good?! Are they being written under duress?!
Well, they are deserved and more. We were 3 families, with five children under 5, between us. I have never felt so relaxed and refreshed after a holiday with small children! Adrian and Denise really have thought of everything. We adults can't wait to return, and we think the children enjoyed- they hid when they heard it was time to go home.
If you are at all considering booking this property- do it. You will not be disappointed.

“An Ideal Location for a Family Holiday”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Set in the heart of Brittany’s countryside, Maison de Philomène is a large, beautifully restored and appointed holiday house which is an ideal location for a family holiday. Denise and Adrian have restored the house to a very high standard, with every amenity to hand. The grounds are quite large enough for children to explore and play in all day, and the pool is really splendid, being kept at a comfortable temperature.
There are many opportunities to explore the surrounding towns and countryside. We went as far afield as Vannes, but mostly kept to the area around Mur de Bretagne, with an end-of-holiday visit to Poul Feton. Lac de Guerlédan, drained at the time of our visit, is also a “must see".
As hosts, Denise and Adrian are completely unobtrusive whilst responding to any request promptly and willingly. Overall we had a wonderful time and could not have chosen a better holiday at which to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our family. We look forward to returning in the future.

“Superb large gite with private pool, extensive children's facilities - hassle free holiday”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

On arrival we were greeted by the friendly and helpful owners and equipped with a generous and practical welcome basket. The gite is lovely; clean and beautifully decorated each large bedroom has their own ensuite. For the toddlers and babies the gite was well stocked with stair gates, cots, high chairs etc. The garden was perfect for them to explore with large trampoline, play house and plenty of good quality toys. The heated pool was the star of the week and we spent many hours swimming and playing games in the pool. The pool was well fenced off with a lockable gate and safe baby floats were provided. With sun lounges and views of the rolling countryside provided too! There is plenty to explore in the local area within 15 mins drive is a large lake, typical French towns such as Quinton and then a day to the coast in well worth it (45 mins to 1.5 hour depending on your choice). We had lovely days out in Bininc and Paimpol and Ile de Brehart.- both with pretty Restaurants and boutiques with lovely sandy beaches. We also explored other non coastal regional towns of Dinan and Josselin which are worth visiting (both about 1 hour drive). The gite is the perfect base to explore the whole region. We loved our week there - it was relaxing, hassle free yet packed with fun. We would certainly stay again.

“Excellent Family-Friendly Luxury Holiday Home”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The owners have thought of everything you could need if you have small children, or if you don't! We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing holiday. The children enjoyed the pool and gardens, and we enjoyed relaxing in the sunshine and before the wood fire in the evenings. Highly recommended.
