Welcome to Brittany and our luxury Breton holiday setting of La Boudonniere where you can enjoy the beautiful French countryside of the Ille et Vilaine region and relax in one of our two stunning gites situated in their own expansive tranquil grounds of nearly four acres which includes a natural wood, a heated swimming pool, play area, extensive lawned gardens and a lake. As with most areas in Brittany, La Boudonniere is very close to woodland and forest which are home to deer, wild boar, foxes, hares, rabbits and a large variety of birds including woodpeckers, kingfishers, cuckoos, owls, herons, buzzards and turtle doves. The popular Villecartier Forest and Lakes are only a few minutes away where you can experience a whole range of activities including pony trekking, cycling, walking, adventure climbing, boating or you can relax at The Moulin Cafe overlooking the main lake. With so little light pollution in the area, the sky at night overlooking our property boasts one of the best views of stars, planets and constellations anywhere in France.
La Boudonniere Gites are easily accessed from a main road and we are less than five minutes from the picturesque small town of Bazouges La Perouse where you will find a varied range of amenities including a supermarket, shops, cafes, bars, bank, tourist information office, pharmacy, garage and post office. There are several other pretty villages nearby where you can further sample daily French life as well as shopping in the local markets.
The historic and popular towns of Dinan, Combourg and Dol de Bretagne are all only minutes away as is the market town of Pontorson on the Normandy border. The area also boasts two of the most famous tourist destinations in France – St. Malo and Mont St. Michael as well as the capital city of the region – Rennes – with its shops, restaurants, parks and busy nightlife. Secluded sandy beaches and rugged coastline are also only a short drive away. All destinations are easily accessible with excellent roads and train routes. There are also two airports within half an hour’s drive of La Boudonniere at Dinard and Rennes. Both these airports offer regular flights across Europe including several airports in the UK. Should you consider hiring a car whilst on holiday in France, this is very easy to arrange and the daily hire rate is not expensive.
