Enjoyed our stay in kerbourbon at La Forge,visiting lots of places which the kids really enjoyed. Kids loved the swimming pool, weather has been great for the 2 weeks. Thanks for every thing

We visited the Zoo at Pont-Scorff, the butterfly park, Aquarium in Vannes and enjoyed the Saturday market there. The sub marine base in Lorient was really good as was the Monday market in Auray finishing of with some lovely crepes in the old port of St Goustin. Also enjoyed the beaches at Carnac and Quiberon.

Glorious sunny two weeks at La Forge. We have enjoyed everything from good food-particularly La Cheval Blanc in Baud - to the perfect host.Thanks for providing the ideal spot Mark and for the encouragement for Luke ( almost 5) to ditch the floats and start swimming. We have all made full use of the pool to cool down- several times per day! Sorry to be leaving, good luck with your plans for the future. PS Camors adventure park a great place for kids.

Excellent location to visit all areas of Morbhian as most tourist locations are between 30-45 minutes away. St Goustan at Auray is a must, a lovely place, as is Rochfort-En-Terre. The boat trip to the Ile Aux Moins was fantastic and a great place for a picnic. We also recommend hiring a day boat from La Gacilly.A big thank you Mark for being an excellent host during our 2 week stay. Wishing you every success and happiness in the future.

Great location for exploring Brittany-Carnac and beaches with the 'savage coast' were wonderful. The markets at Auray and Hennebont so varied with great food. The cottage is a great base to explore all of this.

We do recommend the'white horse' in Baud to eat - great food 'FRENCH' style and fantastic service.

Romily, Jus,Jo,Lucy,George and Gen 5th Aug 2011

Had a fantastic holiday.Girls loved the pool and made a great friend...thanks Amie for being so much fun.Enjoyed BBQ's & fabulous food at le Cheval Blanc in Baud. Had a great day at Carnac visiting the market and beach. Enjoyed the chateaux at Josselin, Vannes is well worth a visit but the aquarian was disappointing and not value for money! Children of all ages will enjoy the forest adventure park at Camors. We had a fantastic morning at Hennebont market and afternoon on Lamour plage- very safe for children with kids clubs on beach and fantastic rock pools. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

Thankyou Mark & Amie
