Appréciations pour Maison de Vacances, Brambuan, La Croix Hellean:

A lovely place and wonderful hosts
Review by: Nancy, Sep 30 2017 10:48PM
We stayed with Rick and Karen most of the month of June 2017. The place was cozy and clean. The fridge was filled with enough to get us thru until we were able to shop.
As hosts, the Skinners were first rate. There were two American women staying above us who were delightful and filled in for Karen when she had to go away. Their other guests were as nice as well.
We loved being away from the tourists but close enough to Josselin to get there within minutes.
Except for the heat wave, we enjoyed every minute. Even with the record heat, it cooled at night, and we were able to sleep in the comfy bed. The last night, the Skinners hosted a barbecue for us. Good memories.
Enjoy the comfort of the Skinners' place.
Utterly superb Josselin B&B!

Thank you, Karen, for a wonderful stay. The self-contained cottage was beautiful, the snacks were so welcoming for us tired international travellers, and the fresh flowers just delightful. Spotlessly clean, with every detail addressed and all amenities lovingly offered. Perfect location. Breakfast was delicious. Karen is a perfect host. Highly recommended.

Séjour sympa à Brambuan
Review by: HUON, Aou 14 2014 10:01AM
Dans cette Chambre dHôtes nous avons trouvé les conditions idéales pour notre semaine de randonnée. En effet, la chambre est spacieuse, agréablement meublée, une bonne literie, dans une maison de caractère très bien restaurée. Le logement regroupe tout le confort pour un séjour agréable : salle de bain, toilettes, réfrigérateur, micro-onde, bouilloire Le quartier est très calme, très bien pour se reposer. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié laccueil et le service de Madame Skinner. Elle nous portait le petit déjeuner tôt tous les matins avec des mots pour nous encourager pour la journée de marche ! Vivement recommandé.
The perfect Brittany experience

Les principaux atouts dont bénéficie le visiteur de cette Chambre dhôtes hors du commun sont entre autres une excellente situation : à un jet de pierre de Josselin ; un appartement en parfaite autonomie : avec entrée séparée; un accueil extraordinaire : malgré mon arrivée tardive à vélo, lhôtesse ma gentiment conduit en voiture à Josselin et est venue me reprendre après mon dîner dans un bon restaurant de la ville; une literie de grande qualité ; un design remarquable : lit, lavabo, douche, toilettes, frigo, four à micro-ondes, placards, table du petit déjeuner, le tout superbement agencé.
Chambre perfetta!
Review by: Ilaria, Juil 22 2013 9:49AM
Abbiamo soggiornato nella chambre una sola notte ma è stata impeccabile. Al nostro arrivo siamo stati subito colpiti dalla cordialità della madame che ci ha messo subito a nostro agio e ci ha fatto trovare in camera anche una bottiglia di vino immersa nel ghiaccio. Consiglio questa chambre a chiunque voglia vivere lo spirito della bretagna e viverlo attraverso i suoi abitanti. Sistemazione ottima come del resto la colazione e il prezzo!
B&B Josselin
Review by: Elizabeth Orr, Juil 14 2013 11:12PM
Just returned from a lovely relaxing break. The room was lovely and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The hosts were friendly , helpful and welcoming. The decked area at the front was a very pleasant place to sit the wifi was also an unexpected surprise. The room we stayed in has its own entrance and is on the ground floor. This was useful to us as my husband has limited mobility. I would recommend this b&B wholheartedly.
Attractive and relaxing B&B
Review by: Richard, Oct 25 2012 11:33PM
For the price this B&B ticked all the right boxes and more. Not only is it situated in a beautiful part of Jossilyn, the B&B is quiet and has a very warm welcoming. The room comes equipped with your own ensuite bathroom and seperate toilet as well as TV. Wifi is also available and the newly decorated room is finished to a high standard. The B&B is definately worth checking out for the price and service provided! Definately a must from me!
Had a very relaxing stay here
Review by: Alice , Oct 25 2012 2:14PM
I would highly recommend this B&B if you're looking for a relaxing stay in a picturesque area in rural France. 10min walk into town (Josselin) where there was plently of good restaurants to eat, a great breakfast at the B&B with a welcoming and warm and friendly host, the b&b was separate to the house, clean, quiet and had Wifi Internet access which was a nice surprise! Will visit again soon...
B&B highly recommended
Review by: Leticia Ballester, Oct 4 2012 2:42PM
Out of all the B&B I have been, this is one of my favourites. For many reasons: it is well located (very close to the ancien city of Josselin), it is clean and cosy, completely refurbished recently, with internet access, parking space, lovely breakfast and an attentive and welcoming host. All for a reasoble price. I do recommend it honetly.
