While planning our holiday in France, I thought that the best part of our trip would be to visit (website hidden) Michel. However, the real best part of the trip was staying at Judith’s home.
Judith’s and Graham's cottage didn’t look like in the pictures; it was much better. No picture can provide you with the fresh air that you can breathe in the morning when you step outside the house, the air which acts as a wine. No picture can provide you with the taste of the wine from the welcome basket – light, like air. And no picture can provide you with the smell of cracking wood in the fireplace.
Judith and Graham cared for every small detail to make their guests feel at home: umbrellas, shampoo, hairdryer, the information package – a very useful guide book for sightseeing in the area, and more, and more, and more. It was so quiet there that a person like me with a heavy sleeping problem, slept like a baby, for the first time in many years. Also it was so very clean and definitely can be recommended for people suffering from allergic problems. Everything was perfect – the location, the house and of course our charming hosts. I travel a lot over the world and manage a “top ten apartments” list. This one is on top of the top.
My stay in Judith and Graham's cottage will be one that I will never forget. Totally amazing experience, in a fantastic place, right in the middle of nature and magic, close to every interesting place in Brittany (and Normandy too!) and made even more enjoyable by exquisite hosts. I was over the moon and Nello, my dog, will dream about our week in Ardilloux for a very long time, I fear :-D. Top experience!

About the Host, Judith
I relocated to France with my husband in 2007 after a rewarding career as an English and French teacher. We love travelling and enjoy welcoming people to our cottages and giving them a holiday experience we ourselves would like to enjoy. I am an avid reader and enjoy all genre of books, films and music. I love gardening and we grow our own veg and herbs which guests are welcome to share. When our orchard is in season guests can also help themselves to apples,plums peaches and apricots.I lived in a busy town in my previous life and love the tranquillity of our location and all the wonderful wildlife.
We have many returning guests and the one thing they always say is how peaceful and relaxing our location is. We are also perfectly placed to visit the beautiful attractions of Brittany including the stunning Mont St Michel only 25 mins drive away.
