2 bedroom Gite Sleeps 5. Hirondelle

Our two-bedroom gite with heated swimming pool, Hirondelle, is ideal for families, friends or couples, and it sleeps up to 5 people in comfort. Hirondelle was originally an apple store and cider-press (“pressoir” in French), and its charm and character shines through its tasteful refurbishment into a warm and welcoming two-bedroom gite in the heart of Brittany. It was built around 1880 and is approximately 79 sqm in size. It has been decorated for family comfort and relaxed convenience. Hirondelle is charming, comfortable and very well equipped. Everything you need is here.

July 2011 – Brocklehurst Family, The Wirral
A relaxing week – just what we needed. The gite is fantastic and the welcome and service from Alison & Malcolm cannot be bettered. There is so much to see in the area that more time is needed so further visits look likely.
July 2011 – Moore Family, West Midlands
We had an absolutely fabulous holiday. Our girls have enjoyed the pool while we have been able to enjoythe gorgeous weather we were lucky enough to get. The gite has been perfect –really well equipped, clean and tidy. We would definitely love to come back. The area is just stunning with plenty to see and do. A week just isn’t long enough to do all the things we wanted to do – plenty left for next time though!!!!
August 2011 – Rouse Family , Essex
We had a lovely week here. The house is very comfortable and a home from home in a great location. Total enjoyment. Hope to be back in the future.
April 2012 – O’Reilly Family , Ireland
What a lovely place to spend our Christmas holidays. We felt so welcome to be here. Didn’t do a lot of things – just relaxed. The house is cosy, complete, clean – a real home from home!
December 2012 – Hoeksema Family, The Netherlands
We have had a fantastic break at Folleville. This is a really comfortable place to stay with lots of fab ‘extras’. Having stayed in lots of self-catering accommodation in France, this was the best!
January 2013 – Francis Family, Wales
We came here on Honeymoon and it was just the perfect setting to get away from our busy lives and have some quality time as a newly married couple. The place is so peaceful and we have really enjoyed visiting the surrounding area, particularly Dinan with it’s cobbled streets and lovely medieval buildings. Fougeres was another highlight as well as Mont Saint Michel.
May 2013 – The Stricklands, Portsmouth
L’Hirondelle – what a fantastic place! Of all the gites we’ve stayed in all over France this would definitely be one of the best. All the facilities you could think of and need are here – the attention to detail is fabulous, especially in the kitchen where there is everything you need for cooking – unlike some places where the barest minimum of equipment is provided! All of the other services offered here are also excellent – pool, games room, Wi-Fi, TV, bikes – all contributed to a comfortable, enjoyable and stress-free holiday. Thank you so much!
July 2013 – Stanford Family, Oxford
Thank you so much for a lovely week at L’Hirondelle. We quickly felt at home – making the most of the excellent facilities – pool, games room and bikes. Thanks for all the tips to make the most of our time here. We had an action packed time visiting Cancale, Foret Villecartier (kid’s loved the aerial course), Fougeres, Dinard and Mont St Michel.
August 2013 – Manning Family, Lancashire
Thank you Alison and Malcolm for a wonderful stay at L’Hirondelle. The accommodation and facilities are excellent as is the location to explore this beautiful part of Brittany. We will be back!
August 2013 – Valentine Family, Yorkshire
A fantastic cottage with two lovely hosts. I cannot think of another cottage we have stayed in that has been so well provisioned. We would love to return.
September 2013 – Clayton Family, London
Thank you Alison and Malcolm for helping make our Golden Wedding so memorable. We love your gite – so comfortable with everything we needed. The best cottage we have ever stayed in!
October 2013 – Mrs and Mrs Hanson, Birmingham
We had a lovely week here. The gite was so well equipped – I was amazed – it’s all in the detail! You really seem to understand your guests. Our boys loved the pool – we had it to ourselves for most of the time – it was like having a private pool. We would recommend it to our friends.
July 2014 – Johnson Family, Herefordshire
A great week. The gite is brilliant and you can want for nothing – peaceful and relaxed and a lovely couple in Malcolm and Alison
August 2014 – Black Family, Little Sandhurst
Another fantastic week here with Alison and Malcolm – our 5th year! We have stayed in all 3 properties now and ‘love them all’. What can we say that we haven’t said before? Thank you!
August 2014 – Roberts Family, Cropthorne
We have just had a wonderful holiday at L’Hirondelle. Alison and Malcolm were very welcoming. Our home for 10 days was beautifully furnished and came equipped with everything we needed, and more – the welcome pack was much appreciated. The swimming pool, games room and hospitality of Alison and Malcolm made our holiday a thoroughly enjoyable experience – many thanks guys!
