Child friendly B&B with pool near Saint Malo & Mont Saint Michel, Brittany

ID: 292
This child-friendly bed and breakfast in Brittany is between Avranches and Fougeres on the border of Brittany and Normandy, 1 hour North of Rennes. It's a great spot for a stopover to or from Cherbourg or if you are en route from other Channel ports to your holiday in the South West of France. But if you only stay for one night you will wish you had stayed for more!

The beautifully converted 17th C country house is in a wonderfully peaceful rural setting on the river Lair, surrounded by over 3 acres of gardens which include a sun terrace and swimming pool which the kids will love after a long hot journey.

Your British hosts are a font of local knowledge and masters at hospitality. From fresh flowers from the garden and bottles of water in your room, quality bed linen and toiletries, a guests' lounge where you can enjoy free tea and coffee throughout the day, homemade jam to die for and fresh eggs from the chickens for breakfast. ... nothing is too much trouble.

Although there are plenty of good restaurants in the area, dinner here is quite frankly superb....thoughtfully created using only the best local produce as well as veggies from the garden accompanied by some well chosen wines and finished off with some local Calvados. Lovely!

There is loads to do in the area if you want to stay for a short break in Brittany with the children. Just 5 minutes away is the Parc L'Ange Michel with more than thirty attractions, including Aqua splash, Multiple Slide, toboggan, whirling boats, children's motorbikes, cars and quads, mystery train, mini-golf, roundabouts and a range of facilities for younger children. Or better still, enjoy a day at the beach which is a mere 25 minute drive from the B&B.

The B&B has free WiFi internet access and there is plenty of parking space in the grounds.

Our B&B in Brittany was in the most beautiful spot imaginable, and the house and rooms are stunning. The hosts are the kindest people. Such wonderful hospitality in such a beautiful place has to be visited again! The Robsons

We received a wonderful welcome at the B&B in Brittany. The accommodation was excellent, the food wholesome, plentiful and very tasty but the winning touch for us after a long drive was the hospitality. A real gem of a place, we hope to return. - The Normans

We used this b&b as a 'stopover' en route south from Caen. Property ideally suited on the Brittany/Normandy border approx 10 mins from A84/E3. We found it easily. (helped I think by John's recently erected signs!). Secluded spot, very quiet with abundant ground for our two young children to run around. Family rooms hard to find to this standard - very well done! The hosts are very accommodating and the rooms are link detached from the living area - we were very well looked after without feeling cramped or that we had to creep around. We enjoyed a very welcome evening meal for all the family that exceeded our expectations - shame we couldn't do it justice. Highly recommended - we will be back possibly staying longer to see more of the area. - the Larders

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the B&B near Rennes in Brittany. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and our children really enjoyed the freedom of our surroundings. Highly recommended - we hope to return ! - the Creaseys

We've used Stopover Connections several times now and have stayed with some very hospitable families but I just wanted to say that our latest stopover, at the bed and breakfast accommodation in Brittany was really great. The property was fantastic (the garden was particularly lovely and really useful for tiring out our baby boy before bedtime) and the food delicious. I would particularly recommend this stopover to anyone travelling with babies and/or children as the hosts were really accommodating (warming baby food for us, offering us extra milk etc). We are hoping to find an excuse to stay there again in the future - the Claytons

We had a very pleasant seven night stay in this lovely B&B in Brittany. Very peaceful and tranquil environment to use as a base to explore NorthEastern Brittany and some of Normandy. If you have children there are huge gardens with trampoline and pool. Our hosts were able to customise our visits and advise which days were best for which market town. Breakfasts were great with fresh bread fetched from the nearest bakery and homemade jams for the croissants! Well recommended and we would go there again if the opportunity arises. - the Hawkes family

All perfect. Very clean, friendly & very kid friendly. Would highly recommend - The Hall family

This b&b in Brittany was just gorgeous! The hosts were so hospitable. We felt so welcomed and cared for by them. The accommodation is beautiful. We hope to return to this b&b. Thank you so, so much for the fantastic service stopover connections offers and the beautiful b&b's you promote. We have stayed in b&b's in France previously but nothing as good as the accommodation we found through you" - the Brown family

We could not have been happier with our stay at the B&B in Brittany. We were greeted on arrival and welcomed with a lovely cup of tea and great discussion about our plans for the following days. The accommodation provided was superb as were the breakfasts in the lovely farmhouse style kitchen (all the time accompanied with lovely easy conversation). The house is situated in a beautiful part of the Brittany/Normandy countryside, not that far from the wonderful Mont St Michel which was the focus of our visit. We cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. - The Kennedy family from Australia

Elizabeth and Matthew at the B&B near Mont Saint Michel were superb hosts and we loved our stay with them. Our supper was top class and I would highly recommend them. - the Hobdays
