Having waited expectantly for a whole year for our holiday at Le Helleguy we arrived on a dusky Saturday evening in July. Would the properties and their surroundings be as we had imagined them? Well, we certainly werent disappointed. Le Helleguy is a beautiful, tranquil corner of Brittany with everything that a family - especially a family with little people! - could wish for. Both cottages are superbly equipped with everything you could wish for when away from home. The swimming pool - which has a retractable roof for when the sun comes out to play - is an absolute boon every morning we would breakfast on one of the many patios and then wend our way over the beautiful lawns for some aquatic fun. The children could not have been happier. And when you want to wander further afield, there is plenty to see and do the beaches at Larmor Plage were wonderful with long stretches of sand and clear blue water, with surprisingly few visitors even in high season. The final word must go to our wonderful hosts, who treated us as an extension of their own family. Always willing and ready to help or chat, but never intrusive. It is said that being offered a warm welcome on arrival at a holiday property can make the difference between a good holiday and an excellent one and we could not have been better cared for during our two-week stay. Places to eat? Where do I start?! So many to choose from, and so many types of restaurant but anywhere offering sea food is a must. Le Rendez-vous des Pecheurs offered an exceptionally warm welcome with fantastic value for money - 12 Euros for a three course lunch, including wine - and a cheekily chatty host to boot wonderful stuff. Would we visit Le Helleguy again? Definitely. Should you give it a try? Absolutely!

We rented Le Helleguy for two weeks last summer and we havent stopped talking about it yet. The grandchildren say it is the best holiday that they have ever had. As you drive down the hill and catch sight of these lovely cottages you know that you are in for a special time. Then when you drive in to the beautiful garden and spot the swimming pool you know that you have chosen the right holiday property. We were made to feel very welcome by Neil and Tricia as they showed us round the cottages. Everything is top quality and we have never seen such well equipped kitchens. They are spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. The swimming pool with the telescopic roof was the biggest hit ever. Two of the ladies had a wonderful pedicure, something every hard working Mum should have. Tricia and Neil have lots of relaxing therapies on offer. You will be well looked after at Le Helleguy and we would thoroughly recommend these lovely holiday cottages and would say that they are definitely up there with the best we have ever had. Rosie, Somerset, England

This is indeed a very special holiday venue. The location is superb, deep in the picturesque Brittany countryside, yet easily accessible to many interesting places and to clean sandy beaches. We stayed in La Chaumiere which we found ideal for our family gathering of six adults and three children. The house is immaculately appointed and very comfortable. The swimming pool is a really great asset which we all enjoyed and the gardens are a delight, not only visually but also offering the youngsters space to let off steam. Neil and Tricia are to be thanked for providing a very warm welcome which we appreciated and for offering discrete and unobtrusive assistance when required. We rate this holiday as one of the best we have taken and thoroughly recommend Le Helleguy as a holiday venue. Mr Avenad, Nr Bath, UK

A very special Christmas! 5 out of 5 Review Submitted: 27-Aug-2010 Date of Stay: Dec 2009 Le Helleguy was the perfect place for a large family get-together. Three generations enjoyed a fantastic Christmas week in the two, spotlessly clean gites. Each looked very festive with two Christmas trees, holly and decorations and we were provided with a wonderfully generous basket of goodies. There was an endless supply of wood for the woodburner which, combined with the heating, kept us all toasty warm. We all had a great time together and made full use of the plentiful supply of games, books and dvds in the evenings. The gites were wonderfully equipped and lacked nothing, (rare indeed, especially in the kitchen!) which was a joy because we could cook and bake as we would at home. That fact, combined with the comfortable beds (again, not always the case), quality linens and towels really made the place feel like a home from home. Thank you, Neil and Tricia, you were the perfect hosts there if we needed you but otherwise unobtrusive! We will definitely be returning. Kate, Salehurst, East Sussex, England

We booked both cottages 6 adults 3 children from 5 to 65 fantastically well equipped and spotless had everything right down to umbrellas and games for rainy days, immaculate gardens with all you need for eating outside. Both cottage have log fire with Neil chopping wood every morning so there is a large supply every day It is so quiet there that you can hear the chestnuts dro pping off the trees ,which we picked and roasted the kids loved foraging for them. The pool is fab kids were in it all the time rain or shine totally safe with a barrier round it with child proof locks on it. The children can play outside very safely There are two towns not far for supplies, restaurants etc. Tricia will book restaurants for you and draw directions if needed, Neil and Tricia are fantastic hosts nothing is to much trouble for them. Make sure you book a welcome basket it worth the extra tea, coffee, etc. We highly recommend these properties you will love it WE ALL DID . Holiday Rentals - Jane Graham, Lancashire

Le Helleguy is a wonderful property in every way and we cannot recommend it highly enough! We rented both cottages with family and have had a wonderful time. The cottages are perfect for two families holidaying together but offer a degree of independence and space, if required. They are both extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean and spacious - real home from homes. The heated pool has a retractable cover which enables it to be used as both an indoor and outdoor pool - perfect for the variable Brittany climate. The surrounding area is beautiful - glorious rolling countryside and very peaceful but not far to drive to the coast for excursions. The owners are so helpful too. ALL IN ALL GREAT!!!! Trip Advisor - Chris, Staplehurst

We stayed at Le Helleguy in August 2011 with our 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. The layout of the accomodation was just right, as it is split into 3 different appartments. Being set back off the road it was very safe for the children to run around, and they just loved the private swimming pool which had a telescopic cover for use at night and on cooler days. Also, nothing was too much trouble for the hosts Neil & Tricia Young, who went out of their way to ensure we had a perfect week. Trip Advisor - Grufo, Brighton UK

Would definitely recommend staying here for the welcome given by Neil and Tricia, the lovely setting, and the great facilities. I would not hesitate to go there again. Chris H, Manchester, UK

Tricia and Neil could not be more welcoming or provide a better cottage to stay in. We were in La Chaumiere with an extended family and the cottage provided excellent communal space, as well as sufficient privacy when needed. The equipment lacked for nothing and the welcome pack was extremely generous, making a very easy start to our stay. Staying over Christmas week we had worried over the logistics of "taking" Christmas with us. Needlessly as it turned out as the Christmas decorations and atmosphere was truly magical and left us all feeling totally spoilt. Set idyllically in rural location, the cottage is nevertheless easy to travel from to the principal tourist sites. Given the quality of this stay it gives excellent value for money Mr & Mrs M Parker, Bath, United Kingdom
