I don't believe in the commercial Valentines, so took my partner here as a surprise, which just happened to be in mid February! If you are looking for a magical, fairytale and romantic place to stay, then look no further. The hosts are utterly charming and you can see they have a real passion for the building and its preservation.... More

A true French gem run by Rose Marie and Joel who go out of their way to make it a special stay. Should you get the chance an evening meal is well worth it. Excellent home cooked food served in grand surroundings. The breakfast was equally delicious and a feast for the eyes...try the courgette and ginger jam. Our room... More

We recently stayed here in order to attend a wedding in Antrain so it was only a flying visit, unfortunately. What a fabulous find! The house is a gorgeous old manoir that has been lovingly restored and decosrated, and featured a staircase that is over 1000 years old. The room we stayed in at the top of the stairs was... More

We were a group of five cycling couples who were welcomed like family by the most hospitable Rosemarie and Joel.

Special thanks to our exceptional hosts, Marie & Joel, who went above and beyond to make us feel very welcome. Marie's culinary skills (with the produce from her beautiful garden) for dinner & the breakfasts, combined with her artistry was a deliciously delightful & filling experience!

On the way from Normandy to Paris, we just needed a good bed for sleeping, but on arrival we thought we had come to heaven. A fantastic mansion - enormous sized rooms - and luxury decorated rooms. A welcome drink on arrival - and the owners??? Perfect - and so friendly. We just loved the place, and have no problems... More

Such a wonderful place and such wonderful custodians. From the moment we arrived until the end of our stay, we were made to feel not merely as valued & welcome guests, but almost part of the family.

I fell in love with this beautiful Manor the moment I saw it! We were greeted by Joel and Rose Marie... so friendly and welcoming.

First, the minor cons: it IS difficult to find. Please don't even attempt it without a GPS that you know will work in France. Our mobile one had trouble finding the satellite. Thankfully, the rental car came with one, and it was still a challenge, but once you get to the village, you can ask anyone and they all know... More

This manor house was so beautiful, inside and outside. The pictures don't do it justice. The hosts were so welcoming and the food was first rate. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. It was very convenient as we just visited Fougeres and were on our way to Dinan.
