A small, cosy cottage in a quiet rural location, with great views and its own stream, Les Bruyeres is ideal for couples or families with children. It's in Brittany, but close to the boundary with Normandy and Pays de Loire.
Our listing on Airbnb is new in 2017. You'll find more reviews on Trip Advisor - search 'Les Bruyeres Fougeres'.
Families with young children will love Les Bruyeres - there's plenty of open space, lots to explore and a good chance of seeing wildlife such as red squirrels, deer, foxes and buzzards. The location is very quiet and rural, with only a few cars and farm vehicles passing in the course of a day. It's perfect for eating outdoors, but there's plenty to do inside as well - books, games, DVDs and lots of music. Les Bruyeres can sleep 6 if needed, but is best suited to 2-4 people, as the downstairs bathroom and spare bedroom are very small. Please also note that the upper rooms are accessed by a narrow spiral staircase, and large items of luggage may not go upstairs easily!
You will have full use of the house, garden, driveway and water meadow (the stream is our boundary with the next property). The rear field belongs to the house and is sometimes grazed by a neighbour's cows. Pets are welcome, but please note that the grounds are not fully enclosed.
Interaction with guests
A booklet of instructions, information and recommendations for places to go and things to do is kept in the house. You can contact us by phone, text or e-mail if you need assistance.
Other things to note
Our usual changeover day is Saturday, but if you would like to arrive on another day, just ask and we will try to accommodate you.
The setting is semi-wild with a stream, marshy area and raised breakfast terrace, so may not be ideal for very small children or those with limited mobility. Smoking isn't allowed in the house. Pets are welcome, but please note that the garden is not fully enclosed.
