Les jardins des coccinelles

Bretagne, Val-Couesnon

Escape to a simpler life with Sabrina and Julien

Come and discover the Ladybug Gardens in Val-Couesnon, a true haven of peace located in the heart of Brittany. In the countryside, this charming organic market gardening farm offers you a unique and immersive experience. At the heart of the farm, where goats and chickens live, you will find four comfortable canvas hideaways, perfect for a rejuvenating stay. Sabrina and Julien, your passionate hosts, manage the operation with care, raising public awareness of current environmental and food issues. Their mission is to introduce you to sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture while offering you an unforgettable stay.

Enjoy an immersive experience on a family farm. The Ladybug Gardens are the ideal place to reconnect with nature. The canvas hideaways are judiciously placed to offer breath-taking views of the surrounding gardens and guarantee an atmosphere of tranquility. In the morning, let yourself be lulled by the singing of birds and the soothing sounds of the farm as you wake up in your comfortable lodge.

The beauty of the place is accentuated by its exceptional natural setting. Val-Couesnon, located in Ille-et-Vilaine, is a picturesque village where you can discover Breton rural life. The region offers a multitude of activities for all tastes: hikes, bike rides, cultural visits and tastings of local produce. By staying at The Ladybug Gardens, you will have the opportunity to experience authentic and memorable moments, far from the stress of daily life. You'll be immersed in slowing down on this farm as the tents are more basic, without any free-running water and a compost toilet.

What to do at The Ladybug Gardens?

The Ladybug Gardens offers a multitude of activities for the whole family. Hop on your bike to explore the magnificent Breton landscapes or visit Mont-Saint-Michel, located just 23km away. Take part in farm discoveries by feeding the animals and discovering organic market gardening. Sabrina and Julien organise educational workshops to introduce you to organic farming practices and permaculture. Children can have fun in the fields, play in the straw bales or enjoy the equipped play areas.

Enjoy a farm breakfast with fresh produce from the farm, found at the honesty shop (products from the farm and 16 local farms), or enjoy the themed evenings organized on site, where you can enjoy wood-fired pizzas, take part in a Breton evening or a vegetarian table d'hôte. A typical day begins with a delicious breakfast in your lodge with stunning views of the gardens. Then you can feed the animals, head to the beach for a sunny afternoon and end the day chatting with your hosts, Sabrina and Julien, around the wood fire.

Ille-et-Vilaine, a region full of surprises!

Located in Val-Couesnon, The Ladybug Gardens is easily accessible by car or train. Nearby, discover magnificent beaches and enjoy sporting activities such as hiking and cycling.
