"Lovely Property" Fantastic property everything was perfect. The area was beautiful the owners accommodating and helpful. On taking the property over it was very clean and well equipped. Bikes are provided free of charge but a car is desirable to see further afield. This area of Brittany is very picturesque. Four adults stayed in this property and was very spacious and comfortable. I cant fault this property even the weather was great. Robin, UK. Review submitted to another site 14th August 2013, date of stay July 2013.

"Wonderful Gite In A Great Area" We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Valley View Barn this summer where the owners were very welcoming and helpful. As a group of two families with younger and older children, the barn offered great accommodation to suit our needs. We loved the big raised deck and have lots of memories of taking in the incredible night skies with a glass of wine. The barn was very clean and well-presented, with everything on hand that we could have needed. The huge garden was perfect for outdoor games for the whole group. We made great use of the free bikes, enjoying trips out along the river and around the quiet country lanes. Our morning trips to the boulangerie on the bikes were a highlight, the local village being only a short walk or cycle. The children loved the lakes with beaches which were very safe. There are certainly plenty of things to do and see in this lovely area. We would love to return and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this property to others. Franco Phil, UK.

"Praise for Valley View Barn" Valley view barn was exactly as described on the website, the standard of the accommodation was high and exceptionally clean. The barn was well equipped for 10 people. The barn was easily accessible downstairs for our daughter who uses a wheelchair. The hosts were very pleasant and amenable, they were very helpful and responded immediately to our requests for information or help with the practicalities of the barn (I.e when we needed a bulb changing in our daughters bedroom). The hosts provided useful written information about local attractions & places to visits and also came to discuss these with us as we had to consider accessibility as our daughter uses a wheelchair. Valley View Barn offers comfortable family accommodation, with beautiful scenery and an experience of traditional French village life. We would recommend Valley View Barn to friends and relatives with no hesitation. There were a selec tion of peddle bikes to use to explore the local villages and places of interest. There are bikes of all sizes which is excellent. We cannot speak highly enough of Valley View Barn and the hosts. Leah, Iain and family, United Kingdom.
