  • Description


    We are Steve and Iryna.
    I’m a retired Police Officer and my Wife a retired nurse.
    We have 2 children, a Girl and a Boy, aged 11 and 12.
    We live on the Normandy/Brittany border
    We have a beautiful, wooden garden opposite a private lake, with no close neighbours.
    There is a small village with a pub, 10 minutes walk away and a big town with all amenities, a 10 minute drive away.
    I’m recovering from an operation so need help around the garden mainly,
    We have a 4 berth caravan for a small family or a double room in our house for singles or couples.
    My Wife cooks lovely food (including Vegan) and we have a big bbq for warmer days, there’s a Fire pit and a hot tub as well if required.
    The night sky is amazing, full of visible stars as there is no unnatural light. In the day time, the bird song is beautiful. The garden sometimes has visits from Deer, Foxes and Badgers. It is truly an amazing place to relax and de stress.
    We have bikes if you fancy an explore.
    We are a 60 minute drive from the beautiful beaches of St. Malo and Mont Saint Michel is only 50 minutes away.
    We can collect from Rennes airport.
