Thank you Lesley and Simon

The Gite surpassed the good listing on the Internet. We greatly appreciated the helpfulness of the owners.

It is so convenient for many places to visit i.e.

Peillac Chestnut Festival
Cycling along the canal towpaths and national cycle route (Lac au Duc)
Visiting Pontivy (chateaux) and Josselin
And the nearby Sculpture Park at Bignan
Yesterday Locminé Market and Ile au Moines

Also the well-behaved log burner was appreciated

Paul and Carol, Devon, October 2012

Thank you Lesley and Simon

We were made to feel most welcome and everything was thought of to make it a most enjoyable and comfortable stay

You have done a great job and we wish you all the best in the future. If we ever get the chance, we would love to stay here again

John and Carol, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, October 2012

A very enjoyable stay here – one of the best Gites we’ve had. It is so comfortable and peaceful.

But the outstanding plus has been Simon and Lesley. Before we left home we had a phone call making sure we were aware of the Brittany Ferries strike, and during our stay up-dated us frequently on the situation and managed to re-book our return trip. This meant another day here – not a problem!

There are some lovely beaches nearby, the canal, pretty towns and villages, all of which we enjoyed.

The Musée de la Résistance Bretonne at Saint Marcel just outside Malestroit is one of the best we’ve seen; not only static displays but also very informative films. An excellent English booklet is available for the tour.

Thank you Simon and Lesley for everything including the lovely produce.

We hope we will return!

Norman and Sue, Devon, September – October 2012

Dear Simon and Lesley

Just to thank you for a wonderful relaxing holiday and wonderful stay

Lovely weather for most of the holiday, but so relaxing to stay in the Gite

Also thank you for all your help with the ferries, just wished we had waited a little longer to boot and we could have extended our holiday a little longer.

Your attention to detail is second to none and your help was invaluable

Hope to return soon

Sue and Chris, Derbyshire, September 2012

A peaceful location – just right for relaxing and re-charging

Give your day a boost by enjoying the wonderful eggs

Just keep doing what you are doing it certainly is a winning formula

Pat, Steve, Vern and Ei, Wales, September 2012

We have had the most lovely time

Lovely warm weather and bright sunny days

The best Gite and the best hosts

Will certainly recommend to friends and family

Plenty to do or just laze on the beach

Robin, Mandy and Ruth, Aldershot, Hampshire, September 2012

We have enjoyed a lovely return holiday in Ivy Gite

We have visited several places again, Josselin, Rohan, Malestroit and Carnac. Also the Sculpture Park

We had a lovely sunny day on the Ile aux Moines. A really beautiful place! Also this year we did the train journey from Auray to Quiberon. This was the last Saturday the train went this summer so we were really lucky. It was a super trip especially as the weather was perfect, the views are terrific

Thankyou Lesley and Simon for your warm welcome, also for the produce from your garden

We hope to visit again in the future

Sylvia and john, Warrington, Cheshire, September 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks stay

Surroundings very pleasant and relaxing, you have both done an excellent job with the Gites, and put a lot of thought into the conversions

We would have no hesitation in recommending you, and the flexibility of the accommodation makes it suitable for all permutations! Well done!

The weather has been kind to us, and you have both been very helpful, and gone out of your way for us, not to mention of course the excellent produce, eggs, etc.

We hope to return, and look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you, and all the best in the future

Bert and Moria, Scotland, September 2012

Hello Lesley and Simon

We had a great time at Le Grange. Our gite was very comfortable and extremely well equipped. The facilities, garden, swimming pool etc., are a credit to you.

The idyllic private fishing lake was a real bonus.

Thank you for your kind welcome and we look forward to further visits to Le Grange

Best wishes

John and Angela, France, September 2012

Fred, Ireland, September 2012

Dear Lesley and Simon

A short but lovely break. The Gite was perfect for us, even with 2 teenagers. The hospitality shown by you and Simon in particular was a bonus and very reassuring.

We enjoyed exploring the local area, in particular the markets and beaches. Locmine is a lovely town and Quiberon a great seaside resort

I am sure we will be back!

Julie, Chris, Alistair and Lucy, Wales, August 2012

Group booking all 4 Gites relaxing for adults and entertaining for the kids.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and time to spend quality time with family and friends

There has been plenty to do both at the Gites and out and about.

So proud of how our children have listened to and respected the expectations of looking after the play equipment, pool etc that have been kindly provided

Lesley and Simon have been wonderful hosts from providing cake tines for birthday cakes, to directions and ideas, and of course veg and wine!

Many thanks

Jannette, Paul, Louie and Izzy, Devon, August 2012


Very sad to be leaving!

Everyone had a wonderful time. Fab weather fab Gites and the best pool ever (fact!) said the kids

Would recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday.

Sarah, Ben and Joe, and the Cornish Family, Devon, August 2012


Dear Lesley and Simon

We have had a wonderful week at Le Grange Gites. The facilities have been excellent and your hospitality has been most welcome.

We love Josselin and Carnac – just beautiful

Thanks for providing such lovely Gites which made our holiday all the more special.

Lauretta, Mike, Josh and Kian, Devon, August 2012

Thank you so much, Simon and Lesley for hosting us in your lovely Gite, 3rd year in a row.

This year we especially enjoyed the Sculpture Park @ Domaine de Kerguéhennec where there was also a great art exhibition in the Chateau

We love coming here you make our holiday great for both of us (parents) and Freya (10) and Oisin (nearly 7).

Normally we stay in the “Willow Gite” but this year we were too late. The “Cider House” was fabulous, thank you

John, Keelin, Freya and Oisin, Bray, Co Wicklow, Ireland, August 2012

We had a lovely time this year; we went kayaking, visiting Branfere and Swimming in the pool, Thanks, Freya and Oisin

We’ve had a lovely time; the children loved your pool and the trampoline in particular, as well as the neighbour’s kitten

Clive, Jan, Evin and Dora, West Yorkshire, August 2012

All the family had a great time, the Pool was very good always clean and warm

Enjoyed playing Badminton and Boules

The Gite was everything we hoped for.

Lovely clean villages local, and not to far from anywhere. Visited three different beaches on our stay, best was Erdeven.

Many thanks for a lovely holiday

Roy, Susan, Ffion, Tracy and Tony, Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, August 2012

Another wonderful holiday – our 5th at the Le Grange Gites, and we look forward to our 6th next year.

Enjoyed doing all our favourite things.

Our discovery this holiday was the Lizio area and the wonderful L’Univers du Poete Ferrailleur, (mechanical museum)

Have a good year and we look forward to seeing you all in 2013!

Alan, Cindy, Josh and Caleb, Swindon, August 2012

Hi Lesley and Simon

Sorry for the lateness of this email, but just wanted to say thank you for a great week last week. We loved the gites and had a wonderfully relaxing time.

Hopefully see you again soon in the not too distant future!

Kind regards
Sally and Matt, Newcastle, August 2012

Wonderful Holiday!

Perfect Gites for us and our friends staying as a group in all 4 Gites

Children played outside and swam ti’l their hearts content! (We ate and drank wine ti’l ours were content!)

Beautiful setting, wonderful area, fantastic accommodation! Thank you!

Kate, Tim, Mille, Gerogie and Will, Leicestershire, July / August 2012

We had a very nice relaxing 2 weeks at Le Grange Gites. My husband is a keen cyclist and found some very interesting rides to go on every morning. You are in a very beautiful part of France.

Regards, Mandy Willson, Kent, July 2012

Thank you Simon and Lesley for a fantastic week, we were lucky with the weather and had cloudless days for most of our stay.

After two months of rain back in the Uk we have recharged our batteries.

This is such a great place for children and given the chance ours would have spent all week in the pool / on the swings / in the Cabin.

We managed to drag them away and enjoyed great days out in Vannes, Josselin, Ile Aux Moines and on the beaches around Trinite sur mer.

Lesley and Simon were lovely hosts and nothing was too much trouble,

None of us want to leave, we will be back again in the future.

Steve, Hannah, Ruby and Evelyn, Cornwall, July 2012

We have had a lovely week her in hot sunshine!

Really like the peaceful rural area and empty roads here.

We loved our cycle rides along the Nantes / Brest Canal to Josselin and around the sculpture park.

Have had excellent crepes at Le Forges next to the canal and near Suscinio Chateau on form!

The children love the garden and pool and playing with new friends – had to get them to go anywhere else!

Sarah, Phil, Elodie & Frank, Stroud, Gloucestershire, July 2012

It was so much fun! I liked the pool, best. The pool was cool, Elodie (7)

We have just returned from 2 brilliant weeks in Ivy.

We were very comfortable in the cottage and it had everything we needed.

Simon & Lesley were very friendly and helpful hosts and we loved buying the fresh produce from their garden, including the delicious eggs from the chickens and the yummy jams and chutneys.

The girls loved the play equipment in the garden and we all enjoyed the swimming pool.

Le Grange Gites is a great place to relax and unwind, in a peaceful location, but well-situated for the local bakeries and shops, and for taking day trips.

We particularly enjoyed the boat trip from Port Blanc to Ile aux Moines, the train ride from Auray to Quiberon, and our visit to Concarneau and Pont Aven.

Rachel, Scott, Bethany (3) & Phoebe (16 months), Bristol, July 2012

We have had a brilliant week at Le Grange Gites

Well positioned for covering Brittany only a maximum of 1 hour drive to anywhere and plenty to see

Le Grange is set in a beautiful tranquil location a fabulous place to recharge the batteries

Simon and Lesley have been friendly and welcoming. Always on hand with good advice

Would definitely return again and bring all of the family

Thank you, Julie and Mike, Wales, June / July 2012 (part of the biker club below)

Mr and Mrs Williams (Mandy and Chris) would like to thank Simon and Lesley a enjoyable week, very peaceful which was wonderful from the hustle and bustle of home / work etc

The Gites which we have never stayed in before were beautiful, could not ask for anything better

As this time we were a party of 10 adults (in all 4 Gites) as a biker club and would really like to bring my grandchildren back here

Mandy and Chris, and thank you again, Wales, June / July 2012

We’ve had a very enjoyable week staying at Le Grange Gites. Thank you for being so friendly and welcoming. It’s a great location for exploring Brittany and so peaceful.

We’ve enjoyed searching for megalithics, particularly at Carnac, Locmariaquer, the Ile de Moins and Gavrinis.

The castle at Josselin is lovely and well worth a visit.

Our favourite restaurant was the Aux 4 Saisons, beautifully cooked food at a reasonable price.

Many thanks

Janet, Robert and Katherine, Reading, June 2012

We had a lovely week, despite some rain!

The Gite had everything we needed in it and the garden was great for Lucie

The garden was amazing, Lucie loved the trampoline and swing and it was nice that everything was enclosed and safe

The information packs within the Gite were really informative and useful, thanks

Visited lots of places, the beach at Damgan was lovely, Josselin was nice for a walk around, Suscinio beach was beautiful and had the added attraction of a Crepe restaurant near the Chateau

We ate at Au-Vieux-Pressoir, the food was good and they were very welcoming

Thanks, Liz, Dan and Lucie (2), Cambridge, June 2012

Great info, friendly and approachable hosts

Beautiful place as a base for the area

Really good package for little children, fun but safe

Loved our stay here.

Geoff & Jacqui with Jade (3) and Ebony (3 months), Co Limerick, Ireland, June 2012

Dear Simon and Lesley

Just wanted to say we had a lovely holiday at your Gite and to thank you for all your help and sharing your corner of the world with us.

From stair gates to mini paddling pool, you provided everything we needed to make life easy for us.

The girls loved the garden, playing with the stones in our garden area and the bucket of pegs was endlessly amusing to them!!

Thanks again

Michelle, Steve and the two girls, Kent, May 2012

Thank you all for a lovely holiday, lovely Gite and lovely people

We had a very relaxing time even when Thomas was running us ragged.

The area is beautiful, lots of places to visit and the weather wasn’t too bad either although it is April

All the best and hope to see you again

Love Ed and Maz, Winsford, Somerset, Exmoor, April 2012

Our stay here in the "Bramble Gite" has been very enjoyable. The communal play area has been a real hit with Thomas our 2 ½ year old! He’s has a fab time.

The Gite is very comfortable and the washing machine a godsend with a 2 ½ year old

We’ve had some enjoyable days out, particularly Carnac and Quiberon, very scenic

The Chickens and Daisy have been a firm favourite of Thomas’s I’m sure he will miss them!

Thankyou Simon and Lesley for being such welcoming and helpful hosts

Tina, Richard and Thomas, Exeter, Devon, April 2012

PS Highly recommend “Au Vieux Pressoir” in Moreac for a delicious meal
