General Description

1 of 4 Gites with 24 beds + cots with indoor heated pool in quiet setting near historic towns and safe sandy beaches. This Gite has been designed to welcome guests in wheelchair. 20% discounts available on Brittany Ferries for our guests.

La Julerie is situated at the end of the public road with no passing traffic and is therefore very quiet and peaceful; however it is near several historic towns and also many beautiful safe sandy beaches along the Cote D'Armor.

Accommodation Facilities

Bedrooms: This Gite has 2 bedrooms, both on the first floor; one is a double with room for a cot in it if needed and the other has 2 single sleigh beds; on the wide landing there is a settee bed which we say is ideal for one adult or 2 children; if needed a cot can also be placed on this landing.

Although there isn't any bedroom on the ground floor, a single bed can be brought in and placed at the rear of the salon if any guest is unable to manage the stairs; (see one of the photos included below showing this situation); the sofa in this Gite can also be converted into a bed.
Bathrooms: On the first floor there is a bathroom with bath (with shower attachments which makes washing the children's hair easier) basin and toilet, whilst downstairs there is a large shower room into which a wheel chair can be taken; the toilet in this room is at a higher level for disabled guests.
Kitchen: All of our Gites have an open plan ground floor living area with corner kitchens; when doing the conversion work our son told us he was doing this so that “mums wouldn’t get left in the kitchen working whilst the rest of the family were enjoying themselves!” There is a full range of electrical equipment including 4 burner hob, oven, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, mixer etc. and dishwasher
Living Rooms: The salon area is at the front of this gite on the other side of the door to the kitchen and shower room area; it has a suite of 2 armchairs and a settee which can convert into a bed. It is equipped with TV with UK satellite channels and DVD player (please bring your own DVDs); at the rear of this side of the ground floor is the dining area, but the table and chairs can be moved to a more central position if a single bed is placed in its area for any disabled guest. We would also place a chest of drawers and a bedside table when a bed is placed here
Other Rooms: Games Room adjoining the indoor swimming pool. This large room has a table tennis table, a seating area, 2 changing rooms with showers and a toilet; there are many toys for younger children including several sit on ones and books for all to read (English and French). If guests book all 4 Gites they are welcome to use this room as a function room, several guests have held their wedding or anniversary receptions in it as there is enough room for up to 40 guests to sit and dine together. They have invariably called upon outside caterers to provide the food (details are available).
The swimming pool is only accessed through this games room for security reasons. The pool is normally heated from Easter until the end of tOctober; it has glass covers which are opened during fine weather. The pool is over 9 mtrs long and 4 mtrs wide with a level bottom at a depth of 1.65 metres, deep enough for a proper swim, but parents can still stand and look after their infants who may also be in the pool
Linen/Cleaning/Towels etc: Our prices are fully inclusive. All bed linen, bathroom towels, swimming pool towels, kitchen towels, serviettes etc are provided and changed on a weekly basis. The only extra charge which is levied is for any pets at 10 Euros per night or 40 euros per week per pet)
Outside: La Julerie is situated in about 1/2 hectare of land, the Gites have lawned area in the front and patios to the rear with wooden furniture and Weber barbeques; beyond these patios there is another area of private lawn, then the garden opens up to an area shared by all of our guests. There are swings and a slide, sand pit and a play house for the younger children, a boules court and badminton equipment for all to use
Additional notes (if any): We have no added charges, the prices quoted above are what you will pay for your holiday, but we do take a security deposit of £250 per Gite from guests on their arrival and hold this sum until we have checked through the Gite at the end of their stay. We recommend guests have a cheque available to cover this sum. There is a local “taxe de sejour” which we have to pay to the Tresor Public, but as this is included in your tariff you do not need worry about it.

We have virtually all of the equipment parents need when taking their infants on holiday which means you don’t need bring items from home; besides cots, high chairs and stair barriers we also have a baby changing table, baby bath, bottle sterilising unit, swing chair and baby chair and a listening device etc.; where needed all kitchen cupboards and upstairs windows have locks which are reversible and only need be engaged when infants are in the property. We have also fitted barriers to the patios.

We have 2 separate lines providing WiFi throughtout all 4 gites

There are several bicycles freely available for guests to use on a daily basis.

Local Area / Activities

La Julerie is about 18 km from the coast which offers a large number of excellent sandy beaches; the tides along this coast are some of the largest in the world with rises/falls measuring over 13 metres on the Spring Tides, so when the tide is out, it goes out a long way and this does restrict swimming. It does however make it very easy and pleasurable to walk over to the little island of Les Ebihans off the headland at St Jacut when the tide is out. There is car parking space on and near the headland and also a notice board with information on the tide times and also about making the crossing safely. Here I think it is worth pointing out that parking is free all around the coast, with a few exceptions (the Cap Frehel lighthouse area is one of them during the summer months). Parking is also free in most of the smaller towns; in larger towns such as Dinan where one pays, but even then it is not very expensive, it is still free between 1200-1400hrs so you can enjoy your lunch! What a difference to the parking charges applicable at virtually all UK beaches and in the towns. As the coast is a whole series of little peninsulas, there are many beaches facing different directions, so you can normally find a suntrap. We like the little beach just outside the harbour at St Briac for the late afternoon sun, other times we use the beaches at Lancieux. If you surf or wind-board the best beaches are just beyond St Briac and the wide open north facing St Luniare. There are several sailing schools on the beaches, including St Jacut and Lancieux; we can book classes for guests if so requested. Places of interest St Malo, a walled town, very popular with the yachting world and tourists. Whilst the walls appear old, the town was in fact flattened by the Allies during the War and rebuilt afterwards. The restaurants around the walls can be expensive but are considered to be good and are very popular. A walk around the walls is well worth the effort. Don’t drive in within the walls unless you enjoy narrow one-way streets jammed with walkers! It is far better to “Park and Ride”; you will see signs for La Navette which is their park and ride. A warning, during the summer the bridge across the barrier on the river Rance will be closed on the hour for up to 20 minutes to allow the yachts to pass in and out of the basin. Take note if you are taking the ferry from this port. Dinard is a very smart resort; it was popular with the Edwardians and has a genteel splendour. It boasts a casino, and several lovely beaches. There is a Thalassa therapy complex (a good place for the wives to spend a ½ day enjoying the seawater therapy treatments whilst their husbands are playing golf!). Market days are Tuesday and Saturday, this is certainly the best market I know, you will find a good selection of all types of fish- especially shellfish and oysters- fresh fruit and veg including stalls of organically grown veg and all the usual items of clothing. It is a “chic market”. Parking can be a problem but we can find a space with minimal waiting in the car park just to the northwest of the market place, there is also an underground car park beneath the market halls- parking is free. Dinan Our favourite, a medieval walled town with lots of shops and sights to see. Take a walk through the English gardens to view the river running alongside the town before taking the walk down the cobbled street Rue Jezrubel to the port. This street has an interesting array of craftsmen’s shops and workshops. Market day is Thursday, again good selections of food, but the market has a much more urban feel to it than Dinard. Just below the car park near to the old Tower there is a garden area where there is an area with a miniature zoo (several small animals in enclosures) which will appeal to young children Dinan is 9 km from La Julerie, Dinard about 24 km and St Malo 30km. Places to visit less than an hour’s drive from La Julerie Mont St Michel- the world famous abbey on top of a rocky outcrop off the coast Moncontour and historic small hilltop town. Rennes the capital of Brittany. Guingamp, a cultural centre and the home to the annual Breton folk Dancing assembly Both Dinan and Moncontour hold Medieval Fetes during July or August, alternating between the towns each year. Dinan in 2016 & Moncontour in 2017  etc. Restaurants There are a large number in the area catering for all tastes and pockets. Sea food and crepes are local specialities
