“Le Jardin des Simples” is linked to Mont-Dol Castle via its gardens, which include an aromatic herb garden, a vegetable garden and a rose garden. There is also a small lake which, with the terrace and relaxation areas, makes a beautiful ensemble. Jacqueline and Yannick recently purchased the old vicarage in the village of Mont-Dol and have transformed it into a charming B&B. The five beautiful, comfortable bedrooms upstairs are decorated in soft hues, furnished with antiques and equipped with modern bathrooms. Each bedroom is personalised by a pretty arrangement of flowers from the garden and one or two paintings by Annabel Leve, from Cancale. Guests have access to all the ground-floor rooms which overlook the terraces and gardens, and there is also a large lounge with a wine cellar below where guests can have drinks before or after dinner. Yannick is a trained chef and delights in concocting delicious meals using fresh local produce and seafood, which are served in the pretty dining room. Breakfast is also a feast, with a buffet of 8 different sorts of cake, a seasonal fruit salad, yoghurt and home-made jams, not forgetting Breton pancakes! A really beautiful place which blends charm, a warm welcome, calm and excellent food, all close to Saint Malo and Mont-Saint-Michel.
