L'Ecurie,a lovely gite in Brittany

Enjoy this beautiful part of Brittany whether you want a relaxing break or a more active holiday- the Côtes d'Armor has something to offer everyone.

L'Ecurie is only minutes from the beaches and within an easy drive of both Roscoff and St. Malo.

Explore the local medieval market towns of Treguier, Pontrieux and Lannion, or simply sit by the harbour in Paimpol and watch Breton life go by.

For the more active, while away the hours beach-combing the numerous deserted beaches and coves of the Pink Granite Coast. Explore the countryside on foot, bike or horseback or even try your hand at fishing, sailing or kayaking.

For an extra indulgence aromatherapy massage is available in the owner's on-site treatment room. They will even take the "self" out of self-catering with a home cooked meal.

L'Ecurie is a gite that's perfect just for two - it has been beautifully renovated and furnished to a high standard and is designed to give you a relaxed and comfortable base from which to enjoy your holiday.

L'Ecurie has its own private garden and patio area with BBQ.

Guests have access to the large garden to play boule or croquet.

There are numerous places to sit and enjoy the flowers and sunshine, watching the swallows hard at work.

Beyond the garden are pleasant walks along the surrounding country lanes and wooded streams.

Reduced Brittany Ferries fares may be available on certain crossings - plase askw ehn booking.

A great base to explore the Cote d'Armor

My wife and I spent a fortnight in June staying in this fantastic property and we had a wonderful time.

The property is situated in the heart of rural Brittany. We had the warmest of welcomes on our arrival and found the gite met our needs perfectly.

We really liked the imaginative use of stained glass, as well as the inventiveness of other clever features such as the sewing machine treadle to support the hand basin in the bathroom.

Our preferred holiday making involves plenty of sightseeing, walking and dining. There is so much to see in this part of Brittany – we especially enjoyed walking stretches of the GR34 at the coast.

We also spent time in the evenings playing croquet and boule in the large garden next to the gite. The peace and tranquillity were much appreciated – it was a joy to sit outside hearing nothing but bird song.

I would like to thank the owners for helping to make our holiday such a memorable one. I always had prompt replies to my emails in the lead up to our holiday. Their kindness and friendliness will stay with us as one of the most pleasurable features of our stay. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to future holiday makers. You will be assured of a carefree holiday.

Go on book it! You won't be disappointed!

An Excellent little gite! It was very well presented with everything you need for a relaxing stay.

The location is quiet but within easy driving distance of shops and beaches. We particularly enjoyed exploring the Pink Granite Coast and had some really nice walks. The owners Terry and Karen were very helpful and easy to get along with, making you feel very welcome.

We found the Wi-Fi useful to keep in touch and also to find information about the places we wanted to visit whilst there, although saying that there is a lot of info in the gite supplied by the owners.

All in all we had a very relaxing/enjoyable week and hope to return again for more of the same.

This property was everything we hoped for, and more!

We were greeted like old friends by Terry and Karen, two dogs, four chickens and a couple of ducks!

The accommodation was charming and spotlessly clean. The fridge was stocked with milk and butter, and we were given freshly laid eggs for our breakfast. The bed gave us the best nights' sleep we've ever had on holiday.

The location is ideal. The village, with convenience store and a couple of restaurants, is nearby. Also close to good sightseeing spots and local markets.

We took advantage of our hosts' offer to prepare dinner for us. The price was unbelievably good for a three-course meal which was delicious and well presented.

Sadly, we only booked for three nights. If we had not been pressed for time, we would most certainly have extended our visit. I cannot recommend this property more highly!
