BFB's Overview

Anyone who has been on holiday and wanted to stay forever may be a little envious of Emerald Coast Gites owners and hosts Simon and Lesley Willis who did exactly that. The Willis’s fell in love with the gite lifestyle on holiday in Spring 2005 and moved to France 3 months later! No mean feat with toddler Sam in tow.

What was once a run down farm complex is now home to seven fantastic 1-4 bedroom gites sleeping 2-8 plus cots. As Simon and Lesley are parents of young children themselves (Sam’s younger sister Evie was born in 2006) it’s unsurprising that the gites and surroundings have been designed very much with the needs of little ones at the forefront.

Each gite has a selection of toys and books, stairgates; blackout blinds crockery and cutlery, plus a comprehensive list of extras that can be arranged in advance (see grey box below). The grounds are kiddie heaven with adult and toddler heated swimming pools (both enclosed). Under 3s will be in their element with swings, slides and ride-ons plus an under cover soft play centre (coming in 2010).

Older kids have the multi-activity play centre with swings, slides, and a climbing wall. If that doesn’t exhaust them try the mini football pitch, basketball hoop and trampoline. There’s also an indoor games room with pool table, table tennis table, table football, electronic dartboard (with plastic safety darts) and a Nintendo Wii for evenings or when a break is needed from the sun.

Mums and dads feeling a little worn out reading through that list of activities will be relieved to hear Simon and Lesley’s ethos that parents need a holiday too! Catering to this ethos is the positioning of the well stocked bar which overlooks the play area! The bar is also a great place to mingle with other parents and sports fans will be delighted to know all major sporting events are screened here, particularly with World Cup 2010 fast approaching!

La Boulange - 1 Bedroom
A pretty stone cottage with one double bedroom, ensuite bathroom (tub and shower), spacious lounge with two sofas, including a sofa bed , and a well-equipped kitchen complete with hob, oven, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. Outside there's a private terrace with dining furniture. There are communal laundry facilities on site.

Location Information

In addition to the on-site facilities there are plenty of things in the local area to occupy even the most energetic guest or demanding child. Just a short drive away guests will find gold courses, pony treks, sailing clubs, tennis courts, bowling alleys and much much more- guests will never be short of things to do. For a good old fashioned day at the beach, the gites handily lie on the Côtes-d'Armor, which is a beautiful part of France that is dotted with quaint, medieval towns and picturesque villages and most importantly miles of ragged coastline and unspoilt beaches. Many of the beaches even have a range of adults and kids clubs during the summer months which is perfect for those who don't like simply lying in the sun.


Getting There: The gites are 30 minutes drive from Dinard-Pleurtuit airport, 1 hour from Rennes St Jacques airport, 1.5 hours from Brest airport and 2.5 Hours from Nantes airport.

Who owns this place?

Simon, Lesley, Sam (nearly 6) and Evie (3 going on 13!) own and live at Emerald Coast Gites. In their previous lives they lived in London where Simon and Lesley both worked for Banks in IT. Once Sam came along they decided to do something completely different which would hopefully enable them to spend more time with the children and give their children a really happy childhood. Their idea was to create a holiday environment where children could explore, run, jump, play and generally be happy, whilst being safe and at the same time not forgetting the parents. Simon and Lesley are both very outgoing, enjoy meeting people, having nice food and great wine. This coupled with having a great family living space is what you get when you stay at Emerald Coast Gites; hence the bar which sits nicely alongside the soft play area and is populated most evenings by parents discussing where they have been, what the kids have been up to and which are the best beaches! The bar is Simon's little hobby and it is difficult to get him out of there in the summer!

What do they love about it?

Simon and Lesley say they love it at Emerald Coast Gites because they have achieved what they set out and the clean fresh air, views, slower pace of life and the benefits for the children are second to none. Both our children go to school in the local village and speak fluent French. The space and freedom the children have is fantastic. Where they lived in London they had a garden the size of a postage stamp so to see the children bombing up and down the driveway on their bikes is fantastic. They also love the beaches - Lesley reckons that they are the best and least busy in France! Undiscovered to the majority. Clean, big, sandy and full of seafood if you catch the tides. They love going crabbing and picking up oysters directly from the rock pools and will gladly give you tips on the best places to head for to get really fresh seafood.

What do the kids love about it?

Sam and Evie, and every child which has stayed here love it at Emerald Coast Gites. The space, the swimming pools, the play areas, the ride-ons, the dens and the impromptu dads and kids footie match in the field goes down a treat. It is just so nice for the children to have the freedom to run around in a safe environement and to explore on their own. They can collect the eggs for breakfast, climb trees and generally be kids!

  • What a wonderful place to bring the kiddies. Echoing the sentiments of most of the other people who have posted comments, it turned out to be a proper rest for the otherwise harangued Mummy and Daddy.Review dated 15/10/2013

  • Difficult to use staircaseReview dated 08/07/2013

  • Perfect for a family holiday, with plenty of things for the children to keep entertained around the Gites, and many days out nearby. The welcome and service provided by the owners is second to none, all meaning we had a wonderful time. Looking forward to heading back again sometime.Review dated 04/10/2011

  • A Gorgeous cluster of 8 or so Gites just 10 mins from the coas. The PERFECT easy-going family holiday. Paradise for tots with a huge secure site that showers them with facilities, 2 heated (and gated) pools, a lawned garden in the centre featuring the classic park paraphernalia, then there's a huge trampoline, a covered barn with soft play area and ball pit and an endless supply of ride-on's inc scooters, bikes and tractors... and if that's not enough, the free roaming rabbit and the chicken shed is the cherry on top. For the parents the pools are fabulous, but to be honest we reverted back to our childhood and joined our 3 year old on everything designed for him. The on-site bar however provides a well earned break in the evening... and comes with peace of mind as the baby monitors are lined up alongside the tasty French Vino and cheese.

  • Considering the place has only been opened for a short period, the owners Simon and Leslie have packed a lot of thought and warmth into making their venue an ideal holiday location for parents and children. From the welcome pack of french baguette, chocolates and wine to the inside and outdoor play area, rabbits and trampoline that are literally on the doorstep. We especially loved their cheese & wine evening in the bar. A relaxing, great holiday was had by all. We will definitely go back if only just to see what else they can add to the mix. Superb location to get to know Brittany well.Review dated 26/07/2010

  • The gite was very clean and comfortable with everything you need and more. The facilities outside were excellent for babies, toddlers and children. The owners were very accommodating and made you feel very welcome. They make a huge effort to look after their guests and the home cooked food was delicious! The area was beautiful with lots to do and the beaches are just amazing. Overall a fantastic place to go where you can be assured it is family orientated and the kids will love it but you can have fun and relax as parents too!Review dated 06/06/2010

  • We had a lovely time. Lesley & Simon were very accomodating and looked after our every need. We felt like we were staying in a home away from home which was important to us with a young baby. There is something to occupy any child from the new indoor soft play area to a plethora of outdoor toys.....as well as a friendly bar for the adults! The location is fantastic not only for the popular tourist attractions but also some lovely local villages. Simon & Lesley gave us the 'inside info' so we knew what was going on locally from markets to fetes. We would highly recommend La Touche to any parents and will telling our freinds with children all about it!Review dated 27/04/2010

A great place to stay if you are a family traveling alone, as you will meet lots of similar families (and the kids end up entertaining themselves) but would also be a great place to book with friends. Highly recommended.
