Hibou – 2 bedrooms – sleeps 4 + 1

Hibou is a charming cottage with a seaside feel.

  • Hibou Exterior

Hibou was formerly the vegetable store and became the residence of the local barn owl for a number of years.  When restoration began in 1997 he was persuaded to relocate but has not ventured very far – he can often be heard in the evenings and sometimes seen swooping low across the courtyard or perched on the barn roof.

The door from the farmhouse courtyard opens onto a galley kitchen with gas cooker, washer/dryer, fridge-freezer and microwave and well equipped kitchen cupboards.  The shower room and cloakroom with hand basin and wc are to the right of the entrance door.

The salon area has a feature wood burner, comfortable sofas and dining table.  French doors lead from the salon onto the patio with stone-built barbecue and wooden furniture.

Cabin-style stairs lead from the salon up to the two bedrooms looking out onto the pool, sandpit and swings – one with a double bed and an additional single bed and one with two single beds.

Yet again an amazing time at Le Rhun! You folks seem to achieve a level of attentiveness, attention to detail and tranquillity that is hard to beat . We have enjoyed long days at both Le Veryach and L’Aber beaches which are simply stunning and leisurely family days around Le Rhun with the kids running free. Look forward to seeing you again.

We had a lovely relaxing stay here. The children loved the play areas, the pool and the fairy walk. They loved going down to the woods and watching the rabbits in the field. Lovely cottage very clean with everything you could ever want. We were made to feel very welcome by Lesley.

We have all been enchanted by this blissful tranquil setting. The property is beautiful and has worked perfectly for a party of six adults and three children. Adventurous play, family sports, meadow walks, pirate escapades and supper in the fairy glade have given us a fabulous fortnight.

Gray & Dottridge family. La Ferme 2016

We loved the accommodation and the children loved the play areas. Excellent crepe evenings and pirate treasure hunt – best of all was the pirate birthday cake! Horley family + (Lily, 6, Madison, 5, Tilly, 3)

Horley family Etable 2016

Another fantastic family holiday at Le Rhun! Some nice additions to the gite since last year (coffee maker, iPod dock, new roof!!) and the children loved the pirate box, new train set and sandpit. The holiday managed to surpass our expectations from last year despite two weeks of very British weather! We managed daily trips to the beach, afternoons in the pool and found new places to explore.

Barry family 2016 Chestnut Loft

A wonderful week at Le Rhun. The beaches are superb and so many to choose from. The kids had a ball making new friends enjoying the wonderful gardens and pool onsite. We’ll be back, I should think. Thank you

Foulkes family 2016 Chestnut Loft

We have had a great time here, what a lovely welcome welcoming and child friendly place you have created. Thanks- it has been a wonderful first family holiday, great place for a two and three-year-old to explore safely. Thank you for your help on our first day when our little girl was ill, much appreciated.

Gilletts and Reynolds family 2015 Etable

Great place to chill out with the baby!! If Samuel was a little older in this place he would be in paradise! Imagination running wild!!! Attension to detail inside and out is excellent despite the scary amount of owls!!

Strawson family Hibou 2015

Great week at Le Rhun. Loved the area and everything there is to do at Le Rhun. Very relaxing and our girls (4 & 5) had a fab time. Swimming pool and pirate deck were favourites.

McCling family Etable 2015

We’ve had a wonderful holiday this is a perfect base to explore beautiful Brittany. Charlie (2) says his favourite bits are the swings, the chickens and the pirate ship. We loved that the gite was stacked with toys and equipment for the kids so they were never bored (amazing!) and we could relax.

What a fab place, brilliant facilities in a fantastic location perfect for a family holiday with our little angel/tiny terror (2 1/2 going on 13). There are lots of lovely clean beaches to explore and we really like the Little Bay at Postlannec.

Bingham/Gardiner family. 2014 Etable

Another superb holiday at Le Rhun, cottage is kitted out brilliantly as always.

Greenwood family 2013

Why do we keep returning to this wonderful child friendly place when we have no children to bring? It is not only the warm welcome, the cosy gite, the beautiful surroundings, it is because of all the small extras and kindnesses which turn a good holiday into a perfect one. Thank you.

Cecilia and David – Sept 2013

We have had an amazing 2 weeks. We had lovely weather but even if it hadn’t been on our side the area is beautiful, the gite charming, and the hosts wonderful. We will return!

Symes – Aug 13

Really enjoyed our holiday at Le Rhun. Excellent outdoor space for the children to enjoy. Lots to see and do in the area and definitely hope to visit again.

Gardner & Bird Families – Aug 13

A great opportunity for all the branches of the family to enjoy time and fun together. Thank you.

Penny and John Turner – June 2013

A home from home and with mod cons. If you want peace, quiet and rest and at the same time a place for the kids to explore this is a wonderful spot. Superb hospitality and a great location add to the enjoyment. Somewhere we will recommend to others for sure.

Kristina, Gordon & Joshua – April 2013

I thought we might have been a bit optimistic taking a newborn on holiday but we were all amazed at how well equipped Etable was! It has everything! We loved this little gite. We’d love to recommend l’Aber beach. We loved Very’ach too but with small children l’Aber was excellent as we took the prams on the beach and the toddlers could swim in the rock pools. We found crabs and starfish aplenty. But what made the visit extra special was the hospitality/welcome/finishing touches.

The Tompkins & the Webers – Sept 2012

Lovely reception, fantastic apartment and a magical location. Brilliantly set up for the children who had a ball in the lovely warm pool! Thank you for the generous gifts on arrival and the comfortable beds. We loved exploring the peninsula and will definitely come back at some point.

Murray family – Aug 2012

Thank you for a wonderful time here.  The area is stunning and still quite relaxed and chilled.  Your hospitality has been outstanding.  A huge thank you for helping to make our daughter’s birthday so special.  Aye aye Jim lad, where’s that treasure?!

Al, Jon and Jessie – July 2012

We had a wonderful time.  The place is a paradise for children and we all loved the pool.  Thanks for everything.

Smith family – Aug 2012

You have created a very special place here! The children have loved the freedom to explore the woods, stream and play areas and we have found the atmosphere totally relaxing, despite the weather!  You have thought of everything – thank you!

Andrew, Fiona, James and Isabella

Fantastic place with all the finishing touches.

Paul, Tina and Leo

Absolutely fabulous – the best holiday we have had in 10 years. You have thought of everything.
