Trip Advisor Reviews

“We have had a brilliant time here.  We have enjoyed playing hide and seek because there are loads of great hiding spots.  The beds are really comfy.”
“The children have really enjoyed the swimming pool so much that they went in it every day.  The adults sometimes came in the pool but were mostly laying on the sun loungers.  Seeing the remains of the houses in the lake was very interesting.”
“Our rooms were very nice and cosy and were great places to play games in.”    “The children loved the trampoline and even had secret meetings there.”
“As my friend just pointed out the bedroom is lovely and warm.  We had some amazing sleeps in the attic.  We also went to the in land lake.  It is being drained this year so it is very interesting to go and look at.  We absolutely loved the pool.  It was also the sun loungers that the adults liked best.  Thank you very much for letting us stay here.  We have enjoyed it very much.”
“Once more Maison de Philomene has exceeded our expectations.  The 9 of us have had a lovely relaxed week, spending most of our time in the pool.  Thank you Adrian and Denise for letting us invade your peace and quiet.  We hope to return for a third visit.”

“Thank you for a lovely holiday.  The house is wonderful and you really have thought of everything.  We especially appreciated all the child-friendly touches.  We’ve all had a great time and don’t want to go home! -  We loved Dinan for sight-seeing, the market, shopping and ice-cream!  Also Time for Tea – a lovely cafe -  We shopped in Corlay and also Mur-de-Bretagne and ate in Mur-de-Bretagne and Pontivy.  The kids loved the pool, the gardens, the toys and the trampoline.  Thanks again.”

“Had a wonderful holiday here at Maison de Philomene.  Weather has been great all week.  House is well equipped and the pool was an added bonus! Really enjoyed our stay in Maison de Philomene.  Lovely walks in the morning and super countryside to admire.  We had lovely weather and enjoyed the coast, especially Carnac beach. Well done guys!  A great place.  We had a super holiday!”

“Thank you Adrian and Denise for a wonderful holiday.  We have enjoyed everything about our stay.  You have been so friendly and kind, your house here in Brittany is idyllic with everything any family could wish for.  We have loved swimming, bouncing, playing swing-ball, cooking, drinking and sitting by the fire.  We came to celebrate our wedding and brought in-laws from Melbourne as well as Aunty Kerry from Anna Bay, near Sydney also, our children - like us, from London.  We have loved our time here together – you have helped us to make this holiday so memorable.  Thank you so much for hosting – you are wonderful.”

“We arrived, after an extremely long journey, at a very late hour, to be met by Adrian and Denise – and a very warm welcome.  We were bowled over by the house – it is absolutely beautiful and far more impressive than we’d imagined!  The warm fire and welcome pack were greatly appreciated, thank you.  We’ve had an absolutely wonderful week here – the house and surroundings are idyllic and such a relaxing place to be.  We’ve ventured out a few times but didn’t feel it necessary to stray too far from the maison – the children (4 of them, aged 5-9) preferred to stay put and enjoy the garden and swimming pool.  The main thing that has stood out during our stay has been the wonderful attention to detail throughout the house.  Not only is it beautifully restored and comfortably furnished but everything you could possibly need is provided – from the fantastic pool inflatables to the board games and fully equipped kitchen.  My sister was delighted with the vast array of toys, highchair, cot etc for her 6 month old – you have really thought of everything!  All in all, a perfect week away – summed up by tearful children who don’t want to go home!  Many thanks.”

“Maison de Philomene – ah, le calme!  We’ve enjoyed a fabulous week in St Maurice.  Many thanks for lending us your lovely house.  Six of us (aged 5-62) enjoyed your warm welcome, comfortable accommodation, and wonderfully equipped house.  No need to bring any toys for the kids everything is provided; house, garden, pool.  Merci, et bon courage.”

As parents of 3 small children (8 months, 14 months and 2 ½ years), going away on holiday is not always a longed for experience!  But Maison de Philomene has so much for families that we have been able to relax and enjoy.  The toys, feeding equipment, outside equipment , pool, cots etc have all been fab and we won’t hesitate to recommend you on our return home.  All the little touches you provide like bath toys, changing mats, have enhanced our experience with you and have meant that we have been able to relax in front of your beautiful fire with our vin, fromage and saucisson!.  Thank you.

“Our journeys were lengthy and slow and it was a great relief and joy to be welcomed by Adrian and Denise to Maison de Philomene.  This is a lovely house – haven’t met any better – well appointed and serviceable for all ages.  We loved it, and have used all the facilities to the full.  The splendid pool was only empty when we were touring.  There is a happy atmosphere here.  Thank you for the celebration bottle for the 90th party, it added to our enjoyment.  The ultimate accolade is from our children – who are discerning!  Olivia says – it is amazing;  Maddy says – it is magic; and Jacob says – it is cool.  Now there’s 5 star for you.  We have had an enjoyable and memorable time.”

“We have had a wonderful week here in a beautiful house.  Everything we could want and more has been thought of and provided.  Adrian and Denise have been very friendly, welcoming and helpful.  In particular, we loved all the extra little touches such as bath mats, toys, picnic equipment and the sparkly walls!  None of us want to leave and would love to return here for another relaxing, indulgent week!  Thanks for making our holiday so special.”

“A beautiful house very well equipped.  Everything has been thought of to make our stay a wonderful experience.  We found it very ‘child friendly’ with plenty of entertainment.  A lovely area in the Breton countryside.  We all enjoyed our fortnight immensely.”

“Wonderful house – well equipped and exceptionally clean.  A great location from which to explore the Brittany countryside.  The kitchen was big enough for 8 ‘cooks’ to collaborate and make some memorable dinners.  7 days of fantastic weather.  Highly recommend a trip to Dinan on Thursdays (market).  Parking was a challenge but well worth the effort.  Great place to escape.  A walk to St Mayeux was lots of fun.  Wonderful photo opportunities.  Lots of memories made here.  Thanks so much for the welcoming basket!”

Ideal property in beautiful surroundings.  House was extremely well equipped – in particular the pool toys, childrens’ play area and the safety features eg stairgates were all very much appreciated.  Adrian and Denise were very amiable and quick to satisfy our needs, especially when they acquired some summer duvets when the hot weather arrived suddenly.  The welcome pack was indeed most welcome.  We will most definitely recommend this property and this region to our friends.  Fantastic holiday – would love to return soon.  Thank you."

We’ve had an excellent time at Maison de Philomene – the weather was excellent all week.  Having two young children meant the pool, pool games and inside games were a massive hit!  The house is gorgeous, well equipped and had everything we could want.  A luxury holiday with privacy and relaxation.  Thanks to Adrian and Denise for everything.  Hope to come back soon!

A very big thank you indeed to Adrian and Denise.  Maison de Philomene is perfectly set up for a family holiday: great facilities and safety for the children and craftsmanship and tranquillity for the parents to enjoy.  The very ‘breton’ welcome pack was useful and a nice introduction to some Breton goodies.  We arrived on the night of the Fest Noz.  Adrian warned us about this... but we thought it was absolutely brilliant to arrive to an evening of Breton music and festivities!  All our best for now and hope to see you again.”

What can we say about Maison de Philomene – Quelle surprise!!  A lovely house in a lovely setting, finished to such a fantastic standard.  Well catered to all ages, the trampoline in particular was very popular with our 2 year old.  Great facilities, exceptionally clean, the welcome pack and food and drink goodies very much appreciated.  Dinan absolutely worth a visit, as are the beaches and quay side resorts on the north coast.  Adrian and Denise were very approachable and accommodating.  Thank you for a lovely stay.”

Dad says “10 out of 10” – can’t fault it.  Thank you.  We all had a great time.  You have a lovely place here.  There was nothing we were short of – welcome pack (a surprise) was amazing.  We soon got into the Breton ways, especially the lunch time Kir – pool, food, kir, pool, food, kir etc.  Great space in and out of the house – felt very spoilt and a little sad to go...  Thanks Adrian and Denise.”
