We have had a wonderful relaxing week at La Haute Haye. Following a very easy quiet drive from St Malo, the children had great fun exploring the house and we all fell in love with the pool! We tried boules and croquet as well as plenty of 'have a go tennis'. The welcome hamper was thoughtfully put together and thoroughly enjoyed ( though a second bottle of milk would have been useful! ) Our trip to Dinan was great - there is a little flea market one afternoon a week too. The old cobbled streets were beautiful, and the shops varied and interesting - accompanied by the sound of French accordian playing. We could easily have visited more places but were quite happily occupied with everything at La Haute Haye, as it really does lend itself as a complete retreat! Only point to note - the children's bedroom at the top of the house has no curtains/blinds so is very bright, but not a problem for us as we did not need to use all the bedrooms. All in all a fabulous, clean, spacious and very pretty house which we would 100% recommend to others!
Three generations of our family stayed for two weeks at La Haute Haye this August, and had such a relaxing time.
We made full use of the indoor pool and tennis court, as well as the spacious garden, mountain bikes and well equipped kitchen.
The house accommodated all eleven of us more than comfortably, and it was so nice to know that the housekeepers are just a few minutes away.
We are a family that likes to cook and sit around the table, the kitchen is perfect for this-although we did use the fish and chip van in Langourla on Saturday, AND the pizza van on Wednesday, both of which are worth a visit.
We ventured out to several places, the highlight of which was Mont St Michel, but Dinnaird, Dinan and Lamballe should all be on your list.
A special mention to Helen , the owner, who has been most helpful at all times.
I would recommend to any large group of friends/family
Superb property accommodating 12 of us from age 3-70. The farmhouse was clean and bright and had everything we needed to cater for 12 each day. We used the Boulangerie in Collinee each morning to collect bread and pastries for breakfast, however it was closed on the Wednesday. We ate out the first night at The Magic Cauldron in Moncontour which was very good; superb food, reasonable prices and lovely service. However there is a fish and chip van on a Saturday night in either Collinee or Langourla which we would have used if known about before we arrived. We had two trips to Dinard for the beach which the children enjoyed, a trip to Dinan, Le Mont Saint Michel which is a must and the market in Lamballe on Thursday morning. We had wonderful weather for 5 out of 7 days so managed 2 barbeques. All in all a terrific holiday enjoyed by all.
We stayed in La Haut Haye for one week with our family from grandparents to grandchildren. Great accommodation, beautiful countryside and the kids had a great time in the pool!
The location is also great to travel to from the south of England, the farmhouse is 90 minutes from the St Malo-Portsmouth ferry.
For a start it's worth mentioning the owner, Helen. Even before we booked she was always at the end of the phone to answer any questions about the location, travel arrangements and facilities at the property.
When we confirmed she posted out a contract and directions to the property - all very reassuring for any first time OwnersDirect users.
The place itself is difficult to fault. There is nothing in easy walking distance but the place has a great indoor pool, tennis court, bbq and even a set of mountain bikes that suit most sizes/ages.
Inside the furnishing is modern and of a high standard. Two large en-suite rooms & two more doubles are on the first floor with another couple of rooms up another spiral stair case.
There's a big supermarket about 15min drive away where you can get anything under the sun. The kitchen is plenty big enough to cater for and seat 12.
An English couple a few miles away look after the property in France. They were also great, cutting the grass (twice in a week) and helping us out when one of the kids managed to trip a fuse.
All in all a great holiday at a great place and friendly, helpful people.
Having read the description of the house we were all looking forward to our holiday (there were 14 of us ranging from 5 months to 63 years!). The house was everything that the web site said and more. Despite the 'mixed' weather we all had a great time - the pool came into it's own when the weather was not at it's best. The accommodation is beautiful yet 'robust' so we weren't forever following the younger ones around for fear they would break something fragile.
In summary, a beautiful, extremely well appointed house, an excellent location. Despite it's remoteness, there is easy access by car to some great locations and some excellent restaurants for leisurely lunches. We certainly plan to return!
