La Fretu is just one of three perfect family friendly cottages located at Bonne Chere in Malguenac, south west Brittany. Encircled by acres of beautiful quiet countryside and enjoying an elevated position it benefits from uninterrupted views pine forest, fields and woodlands. Here is where families can escape the hubbub of everyday life and where tranquility promises only to be disturbed by birdsong.

We know that child friendly means more than providing a cot and high chair…you will find everything you need  from cots and linen, high chairs, pushchairs, baby baths, stair gates, changing mats, baby monitors, booster seats, potties, toilet trainer seats, child steps, bath/shower nonslip mats, , bath toys, children’s cutlery, hand blender, night lights, blackout blinds and more.  If you can think of something we haven’t, then just let us know and we will do our best to provide it for you.

Within the expansive grounds we have created a secure environment where children are safe to run, explore and play to their hearts content. Families can enjoy spending time together whether it be on the large playing field with swings & slide, the under 6’s play area, on the trampoline or the zip wire in the little forest. There’s badminton, table tennis, bat and balls etc too….. so no reason whatsoever for anyone to be bored.

Onsite we have a small animal enclosure containing chickens, 2 small goats (Billy & Benny) and a rather chubby black pot bellied pig called Brambles. When children aren’t busy playing they can visit and feed the animals (accompanied by parents) or simply peer through the fencing and watch them playing.

We are a family run business which was founded on the philosophy of providing well equipped cottages in a fun loving and safe environment where the needs of families come first.

Winter Let’s 

Bonne Chere’s well-appointed cottages are an ideal place to spend a winter break, or Christmas holiday with family & friends. Imagine returning to a cottage warmed by the roaring log burning fire, after walking through the forest collecting wood, mistletoe or holly. It can be a completely different experience spending winter in France away from the hustle & bustle and commercialism of the festive season of the UK.
